Ophelia is a very pretty name. I think its slightly frilly sounding, but still usable. The history behind the name is kind of morbid, but if you fon't care about that, then go for it!
Olivia I like but its a bit too popular for my tastes. Although I adore the nn Liv.
Cora is very sweet and old fashioned. I do think its a bt trendy right now, but certainly not in the top 100.
Hope that helpsMaddox (Max) James 08.31.13.

You seem to have a very similar naming style to me for girls, I'm loving the girls names in your signature.
Out of Ophelia, Olivia, and Cora, I love all three....
Cora is my favorite. I love it by itself - it is simple, pretty, not overused, and has a historical feel, which I like in a name. I also like it as a nickname for Cordelia, Coraline, Caroline, etc
Ophelia would have to be next. This one definitely has that historical vibe I love, along with literary cred, and being a word nerd, I love that too. I also think that while it is a fairly uncommon name, it is still familiar enough that it doesn't seem too out there.
Olivia is so pretty, but I personally don't love it enough to overlook it's popularity. There are so many little Olivias out there, I think one of the above would be a better pick.

I love Ophelia, but I don't know how usable it actually is. It's heavily connected with Shakespeare, and the associations are a mixture of good and bad depending on how you interpret the character of Ophelia. I also really love Cora. What about Cordelia as a compromise?
I like Olivia, but the popularity of it is just too much.
