Allegra ~ allergy medicine
Isla and Freya both are very popular and trendy in the UK. In the USA not so much. Coming from the US, I think of them as nameberry darlings. Names that have great appeal among name nerds not so much elsewhere (particularly Freya which is not top 1000 USA; Isla on the other hand is the top 300 which is still not too popular, it's rising due to Isla Fisher). Both of these names are nice. I would use them if you like them.
Vera Until I met a little girl named Vera couldn't picture on one. Her parents were cool people. Not a name I would chose, but it could work.
Octavia on my own favorites list.
Simone Not my style, but I sort of like it. I would like to see someone else use it.

Allegra - I love it and associate it much more with the musical term than the allergy drug
Isla - I like it, but it started loosing its flair for me a little while ago
Freya - Absolutely adorable.
Vera - I like it when pronounced veh-ruh, but I always hear it as vee-ruh in my head and that turns me off
Octavia - Adore! Such a great underused ancient name
Phaedra - I like it a lot; very pretty and underused
Evalyn - It's ok, better if spelled Evelyn. I personally prefer Eveline, but I know many would disagree with me
Simone - My name, so I'm very biased. I love my name; it has served me well.
Indie - Not my style at allTTC #1!
thinking - not husband tested:
Eulalie Catarina • Cecily Morgana • Beatrix Evelina • Cosima Ondine • Cordelia Metis • Calliope Lucine
Ivo Owen Abraham • Marius Nathanael Oak • Euan Marcellus • Crispin Adair

Allegra- allergy meds aside, I think this name has a fun feel and a great meaning.
Isla- lovely name, but I'm over it. Besides, the Spanish speaker in me only sees the word for island.
Freya- really like it. Unusual, but not weird. Established name. Nice meaning. Feminine but not frilly or syrupy sweet.
Vera- see Freya.
Octavia- sounds like a telenovela name. Hehe. I like it.
Phaedra- the mythological connection is awesome, but all I can think of is that woman on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I need to stop watching so much television.
Evalyn- love Evelyn. Evalyn just looks misspelled.
Simone- eh, it's ok.
Indie- not a fan of nicknamish names.
