What do you think of my (long) girls list?
Brielle- I love the sound and meanings, but even more because of Adam Young's (aka Owl City/Sky Sailing) song Brielle.
Indie- It's from Ally Condie's Matched Trilogy (and I like indie music)
Aurelia- pronounced Aura-lia
Bryn (technically male, but feminine in the US)
Charlotte- I feel like this will be very trendy by the time I have kids, but it's my great grandmother's name so I still love it. (although I hate the nicknames)
Riku (yes, I am aware this is a male name in Japan)

Guinevere - I know it's a whole lotta name, but I'm a big fan of Arthurian mythology so this has a special place in my heart.
Hermione - I don't think the HP associations are bad, because it's very POSITIVE associations (very good character to look up to) and it makes an otherwise beautiful yet complicated name easy for the general population to pronounce.
Daphne - So cute and spunky. I am a little biased because I babysit the SWEETEST two-year-old ever named Daphne. She was born with dark red hair and it has lightened to a strawberry blonde, and is just a treasure.
Charlotte- Although it is too common for me to use, I do love this name. Especially the nickname Charlie or Lottie.
Brielle -(For a middle)
Reine - but hate the spelling, because it reminds me of grabbing the reigns. Rayne Or just straightforward Rain is my favorite. Even Raine I prefer to this, in the vein of Blaine, etc.
Indie - It is ADORABLE as a nickname for something like Indiana. But as it stands, for a full name, it feels very trendy and like a hipster parent would name their kid this, trying to stand apart and be cool.
Beatrice - I prefer the spunkier Beatrix.
Rin - As a nickname.
Acacia - Seems to plant-y or like a vitamin supplement. "Take Acacia with a glass of water four times daily for increased energy."
Elowen - while I like the SOUND a great deal, I can't shake the "L-M-N-O-P" sound it has. Like, if someone is singing the ABC's and it's ABCDEFGHIJK-ELOWEN-OP.
Hell no (for me):
Aurelia - with your pronunciation, it has "Orally" in the name. No thanks. But I love Au-RAY-lia.
Bryn - I don't really love B names and this feels way too trendy for my taste.
Genevieve - I think I saw a cartoon or something when I was younger that the dog was named Genevieve. SO, no matter what, all I hear is a dog name. Objectively it would probably be very nice.
Twila - Twilight associations, and it sounds like a porn star name.
Riku - Eh...
Cho/Chou - Dog name and that super annoying girl from HP.
Colina - This sounds like a strain of bacteria or a colon sickness to me. Corina is much better.
Other: Svea is way over my head. I don't even know what to make of it and am unsure of the pronounciation. Eisa as well. If it is pronounced like Aysa then it is nice.
