    I think your list is absolutely divine. Many of these are my favorites!

    That said, the only ones that I could see with "Teen Mom" connections are Lacey and Liberty, and Kennedy but only with a tryndie spelling like Kynnedi. Deanna is borderline if it is pronounced Dee-ah-na, but Dean-a definitely does not have a "Teen Mom" feel.

    I think it's a lovely list overall.

    I agree with mge28. These names are Teen Mom or Toddlers and Tiaras.

    The ones in bold are the ones that lean in that direction to me:


    Alice
    Allegra
    Audrey(Reminds me of Ashley, Brittany, Courtney... But the image of Audrey Hepburn makes it classier than that.)
    Beatrice
    Clara
    Clarissa
    Deanna(Don't know what to make of this. How do you pronounce it?)
    Dulcie
    Eloise
    Elouise
    Fallon(Reminds me of a pageant girl that I knew named Ferry.)
    Florence
    Francesca
    Georgina
    Harriet
    India
    Jemima
    Kennedy (Feels like a fresher Courtney, again, a high school cheerleader name to me.)
    Lacey (Same as Kennedy)
    Lara
    Liberty(Same as Kennedy. Names ending in Y feel trendier to me.)
    Lila (lee-la)
    Lily
    Lyla(Popular a ending and short name that starts with L feels very "young to me". The y doesn't help.)
    Martha
    Matilda
    Meredith
    Mollie
    Morgan(Kind of like Morgan. An uni-sex name. Feels a little bit dated.)
    Poppy
    Rowan
    Sienna(Feels very sweet and girly. I could imagine a little Tiara Toddler with this name.)
    Stella(Same as Sienna.)
    Verity

    Deanna would be dee-ah-na or dee-anna, like the famous Canadian actress, Deanna Durbin :-) Thank you!

    Deanna is dee-ah-nah or dee-anna, it's after a Canadian 1940's+1950's film actress

    I think you're int he clear. Something being contemporary/popular doesn't automatically make it trashy or pathetic - Kennedy, Morgan, or Sienna are at the modern-est fringe, and they're all totally reasonable.

    You mentioned your MIL giving you opinions. For your own sake, DO NOT TELL HER ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT YOUR NAMING DECISION PROCESS! Keep it between yourself and DH and anonymous strangers on the net!
