Laelia - why not Layla?
Moira - another favorite! Versatile and Irish.
Moriah - I get the Mount Moriah reference, and it sounds pretty besides
Finula - "fin" seems masculine to me
Maurya - um...how is this different from Moira? It's more ghetto?
Ophelia - eh. Not a fan.
Lark - slowly coming around to this name. I could see it work.
Anaelle - way too smooshed.
Laia - I like this one for no reason other than it's phonetically pretty
Aloisa - prefer Eloisa and Ellie to Allie
Aviva - Vive la France! or Viva l'Italia? Take your pick, I'd stay away from naming my daughter a rallying cry.
Alina - pretty, though I'm still not a fan of Al/Allie
Hadley - I've "had" enough of this name
Hadassah - like Manasseh? Wasn't he evil?
Raisa - see Raiza
India - I like this one, but not enough to bold it. The country is too stigmatized for me.
Malena - I think of malpractice
Melaina - prefer Melanie.
Delaina - why not Delaney? (I prefer "ee" to "a" I guess)
Irie - eerie
Henriette - where's the last a?
Henrietta - ah, there it is! A full and complete feminization that is cute and underused
Stella - I think of a trendy, snooty, shopper type
Celia - I like this (though celiac is a drawback)
Aya - might as well name her aaa. (in other words, no substance)
Pearl - I like this one - it's underused.
Ayelet - eye-lette? As in little eye?
Adalina - Why not Adeline? Still, it's pretty all the same
Elka - moose
Thessaly - I've really come to love this name - it's soft and unique
Lavinia - Isn't "lav" a slang for bathroom?
Zenaida - see Zada
Cassia - I like this one, especially with the nn Cassie.
Zara - I like this one too, if you really want to use a z name, this seems most wearable.
Zaria - prefer Zara
Olea - sounds like it's missing some consanants
Saskia - sounds Russian, in which case, is it masculine?
Alaia - Alaya might make it look better, but pretty all the same
Manet - man-ay? Why not moan-ay? (not a big fan of these)
Brisa - It doesn't sound bad, but I still don't like "b"
Britta - for some reason, I like this better than Brisa; too bad it's a water purification company
Hea - looks like someone chopped off the latter part of Heather
Saoirse - not my favorite Irish name, but it's Irish, so I'll give it that.
Caoimhe - Really starting to like this out, but like Aoife, pronunciation outside Ireland will be a nightmare
Genevieve - not a big fan of "jen"
Georgiana - as long as it's pronounced jor-jee-ah-na, I love it!
Poe - do you want her to be depressed and a maniac?
Lillia - pretty, but I prefer Lilibeth
Aveline - prefer Adalina.
Arletta - "ar" still makes me think of Arwin
Clementine - so long as it's clem-en-teen. Clem-en-tyne is an orange.
Roisin - My absolute favorite name of all time! It's feminine without being overly princess-y, it's uncommon (in the states), it's rose-related and it's Irish to boot!
Ailsa - so you're going to name your daughter "ail"sa instead? As in ailment?
Coral - prefer Cora (not the biggest word name fan)
Paloma - ommmmmmm
Jessa - not bad. I would prefer Jessica phonetically if it wasn't so popular
Delphine - okay...but something about "dell" just throws me off. Like, "the farmer in the dell, the farmer in the dell, hi-ho the merry-o the farmer in the dell."
Bidelia - as in Amelia Bedelia?
Beatrice - I like this one, for no reason other than it's a vintage name
Indra - sounds like you are trying desperately to get a name out of Indiana Jones.
Lilias - still prefer Lilibeth
Alouette - Alouette, gentille alouette, Alouette, je te plumerai! (lark, nice lark, lark, I will pluck you - a French-Canadian song to get kids to learn their body parts)
Isadora - ah, here it is!
Meissa - did you forget the "l"?
Ilaria - sounds made up
Greta - I've been liking this lately, but mostly as a nn to Margaret.
Atley - I know this is a company somewhere
Carys Marcheline - not a fan of either, and the combo sounds squishy
Coralei - prefer Coralie, since everyone else will mispronounce it as Coralie anyway
Elora Kate - not bad as a combo
Irey - eye-ray? That sounds like a cool gadget.
Ivy Juliet - both very pretty, but I think Juliet Ivy flows better
Jora - definitely missing something. Jordana?
Gloria - in excelsis Deo, Gloooooooooooooooooria!
Promise - promise me you won't do this, okay?
Madigan - now she's mad, and a masculine "igan"
Flannery - sounds like a combination between flattery and flannel
