    Larkin is my favorite. Laiken looks strange to me in writing but I like the sound. Miette is OK. Dagny I find awful, personally, it just sounds like an old man being called by his surname to me!

    I think Lake, just plain Lake is so lovely and it has that sound like Laiken. I also like Laken over Laiken.

    Larkin is feminine enough for me.

    It's the medieval English diminutive of Lawrence.

    From your list, I prefer Larkin. I think it sounds feminine, especially with Lark beginning, and fits in with the surname trend. Laiken, to me, just sounds like two syllables you like smushed together, and I don't think it looks nice written down. Miette is cute, but maybe a little cutesy? I like this one though, strong second from your list imo. Dagny doesn't have any appeal to me. Maybe you'd like Darby, Darcy?
