Adelaide - I like Adair, but it feels more like middle name material.
Aveline - Aria has already worn out her welcome, IMO.
Avery - Amory reminds me too much of Amory Blaine and "armory."
Beatrix - love Bianca, too.
Tess - I like Bess as a nickname, but not a standalone.
Eve - Esther is one of those names I know I should like, but it just feels fusty and cold to me.
Evelyn - I love Gwen (on its own) and Gwendolen, but Gwendolyn looks wrong to me.
Fern - So pretty and unjustly neglected.
Faye - I love Fiona, too.
Geneva - Not crazy about either one, but Juniper feels cutesy...more like a children's book character than a real person.
Ingrid - Love Heidi, too.
Molly - Holly's very nice, though.
Iris - Sometimes I love Ivy, sometimes I don't, but I'd vote for Iris either way.
Moriah - Loathe Lilith.
Lucy - Very tough choice. I love Ruby so much.
Naomi - I find Phoebe a tad grating.
Olive - I like Ramona, too.
Willow - As much as I like Pearl, I think I'd rather be a Willow.
Petra - Prisca's fab, but I prefer Priscilla.
Zarah - Piper's okay.
Paige - A Sable sounds like she should be dancing on a pole somewhere. I just can't embrace it at all.
Wendy - Wendy works better as a standalone, but Winnie is a cute nickname.
