Allegra - a pretty Italian name. I've had allergies all my life but I don't associate the name to the medication at all. I think of the "happy" meaning and the allegro musical association.
Isla - Ok but trendy. I used to like this name but now I'm seeing it too often so it has lost some of its lustre.
Freya - In North America, this name is rare (not so in Britain). I think it one of the softest mythological names around. Very feminine.
Vera - I know two older Vera's. A vintage name ripe for discovery!
Octavia - a classic Roman name. I like it for its grandeur and stylish flair!
Phaedra - another frilly mythological name. Unfortunately, it's been tainted by a reality show character on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". I can't stand reality shows myself.
Evalyn - Evelyn is fine. I don't like this spelling.
Simone - gorgeous and lush French gem
Indie - I think of the Indy 500 race so it's not a name I would choose for a first name.All the best,

Allegra - pretty and sophisticated, althought the allergy medication is something to think about
Isla- phonetically lovely, but it seems to be a pronunciation nightmare.
Freya - nice, but only if you're going for the warrior-princess vibe.
Vera - love it! not brave enough to use it myself, but I think it's beautiful.
Octavia - Very classy, very grown-up, not sure how it would wear on a little girl
Phaedra - This was the name of my drama teacher in high school, so I've always seen it as classy, yet artistic
Evalyn - spell it the normal way!

Allegra - medicine
Isla - pretty but trendy
Freya - see Isla
Vera - I think I like this but I also think I like it better as a nn for Veronica
Octavia - I'm torn. On the one hand it's cool but on the other I think it might be hard to wear.
Phaedra - I really like it. Has a very pleasant sound.
Evalyn - looks either like a kree8yv spelling of Evelyn or an homage to the villainess from He-Man: Masters of the Universe
Simone - a good name. I like Simona better tho
Indie - only as a nn and even then it might be trying a little too hard. Indigo and Indiana are both nice tho.Mrs. H.
Trying for our first!
