    Top 5:

    Ariana
    Rachel
    Penelope
    Ophelia
    Hannah

    Bottom 5:

    Torill
    Myra/Myrna (very close, and they both seem just as harsh and unbecoming as the other)
    Dilys
    Damaris
    Demelza
    Lorna (I know you said only 5, but these seven seem equally unappealing to me, sorry!)

    Good luck!

    Favorite 5 in no specific order!
    Sylvia- Beautiful, classic, very underused in my opinion! Offers the gorgeous nickname Sylvie
    Penelope- Fun and sweet, though I don't know how it would age
    Myra- Pretty! Have you considered Mira?
    Ariana- Very strong and feminine
    Evelyn- Soft and sweet. Offers cute nicknames, like Eve, Evie, Eva, or even Elle!

    Least favorite 5 in no specific order!
    Tabitha, Beatrice, Damaris, Dilys, and Hester... sorry! but ewwie!

    Favourite Five:
    Ariana
    Anastasia
    Astrid - White Oleander is one of my favourite books
    Demelza - I know a Demelza and she is smart, warm and caring, so the name makes me think of those qualities
    Ophelia - very airy and regal sounding
    Pandora - I've always had a love for this name. Quite stately yet warm sounding
    Tamsin - One of my favourites. So sweet and down-to earth

    Least Fave Five:
    Damaris - not a fan of how if sounds
    Dilys - makes me think of dill pickles
    Hester - reminds me a bit of pester
    Myrna - not a fan of how if sounds
    Torill - haven't heard this one before, but it doesn't feel quite complete or something

    My 5 favourite are: Beatrice, Tamsin, Elara, Vera and Anastasia. These are names that I would use. I love them!
    The 5 I do not like at all are: Dilys, Demelza, Myrna, Toril and Viola. These names are not pleasing to the ear. They all sound pretty harsh, except Viola. I think of the instrument and I prefer Violet.
    I am excited to see Lorna on your list! I know a Lorna! I am also happy to see Hester on the list. It sounds prettier than Esther and there is the great character Hester Pryne. Why don't people like Hester?
