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.

I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.
