    Of Knights, Ladies and Heroines

    My medieval mood inspired me to make a knightly list for boys and now one for the girls. This is mainly just because I thought it would be fun to gather as many of these kind of names as possible, but also research for future Babas. Basically what I'm after are names that would suit medieval maidens, huntresses and female knights: romantic, beautiful, brave and powerful. So, what names do you think should go on the list?

    Thanks, ladies!

    C&P1: I can't believe I didn't add Rosalind! I've taken Rosalind and Illyria off my name lists, that might be why... thanks! And I love Steren, Arminell, Elowen, Ennor, Eseld, Fay, Isobel, Lerryn, Loveday (!), Rosenwyn, Senara and Tamsin. I really like all of them though, but those are my loves. Thank you very much indeed.

    Dearest: Oh my, I really love them all! Ursinia, Somerilda, Emerence, Rixende, Hannelore, Ermengarde and Kinneret are absolutely magnificent! And Esmeray might be even better than Esmeree. Thank you, kjære.

    Teagardens: yes! Thank you. I love Leontine, Elysia, Osanna, Violetta, Rosamund, Leocadia and Pomeline, all fabulous.

    Cygnus: Arwen and Heloise are amazing. Thank you! Vasilisa too, wonderful.

    More names please!
