I know this is an old thread, but I just came across this reply post that I had drafted on a word document and I don't think I ever posted it....
So, if I already posted it in response to another one of your threads, sorry for the repeat!
Bernadette -- This name has a mysterious and charming quality to it, but I cannot really picture it on a baby or child.
Sarai -- I LOVE this name. It sounds familiar yet exotic and has the cute nn option of Rai. Also, it is simple but beautiful which I think is a wonderful quality in a girls name. Really top-knotch!
Thisbe -- Although I see the vintage appeal, this one just reminds me of a lisp.
Aeliana -- Pretty sound, but a little too frilly and confusing with the spelling.
Nicola -- I much prefer Nicole. This reminds me of soda. : /
Isabeau -- Very pretty and rare. I love that it is similar to the popular Isabelle but stands out from the crowd.
Briony -- Strong and beautiful. Mysterious. You might also like Bronte.
Kennedy -- Too tied to the Kennedy family and JFK for me. How about Cassidy?
Jensine -- Not my style
Drea -- Cool, but in print it reminds me of "dread" or something. : /
Tamar -- Lovely name but such bad/sad Biblical associations.
Isaline -- Unfortunately, this reminds me of a name of some chemical.
Inessa -- I prefer Nessa.
Nessa -- Really fun and spunky name. More flare/uniqueness than Tessa.

Eugenia -- See above
Freya -- See above
Niamh -- I love the sound of this name! I think the spelling may get too confusing though.
Eliora -- I love this name! It has an amazing meaning and a rare, lovely sound.
Haidee -- Do you like this b/c of The Count of Monte Cristo? I like it for the same reason, but would only use it as a middle name b/c I don't like how "Haidee's" sounds so much like "Hades" : (
Neela -- not my style
Julietta -- A little fanciful for me, though pretty
Mirin -- This one is neat. Is it like Merrin?

Manon -- This one seems odd for a girl.

Sadira -- This one is interesting, but I prefer Sabrina.

Chandler -- Kind of cute for a girl (probably Nameberry suicide to say that ), but I don't think it quite fits with your other favorites.

Madeleine -- Pretty
Henna -- Could be considered a fresh spin on Hannah, also it reminds me of dye.
Seeley -- Makes me think about mattress brands for some reason. Is there one with a similar name?
Neely -- This is really pretty and reminds me of scenic Ireland or Scotland.
Merrigan -- Wow, this is really intriguing! It has all the strength of the girls names with "son" endings and sounds so happy b/c of the "Merri" beginning. Overall, a very cheerful and spunky name. Adding it to my list.

Dorothy -- Not my style
Maisie -- I like this as a nn for Margaret.
Elara -- I agree, very pretty and rare!

Celia --Pretty and sweet
Aya -- Not my style
Pearl -- Very pretty and simple. Plus, I love the elegance of pearls and the concept of a pearl being formed as a solution to rid an oyster of gritty sand. That gives the name a connotation of conquering trials or quiet strength to me.

Adalina -- Pretty, but a little too frilly for my taste
Elka -- I just think of "elk" and "ilk"

Gloria – This one is really growing on me.
Promise – This might make a cool middle name.
