    Question Pick your 5 favourite & 5 least favourite

    Hello

    I'm trying to narrow down my long list of girls' names that I can realistically see myself using for a child. Please would you let me know which five from the list are your favourite, and which five are your least favourite. If you could tell me your reasons, that would be great too.

    Thanks in advance!

    Favorite 5:
    Hester
    Astrid
    Damaris
    Tamsin - one of my favorite names, ever
    Beatrice - reminds me of Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing, who is a lively character

    Least favorite 5:
    Dilys
    Leah
    Megan --- very common among women I know, so it has no luster to me
    Phoebe -- reminds me of Lisa Kudrow, for some reason I dislike her so it's not a good association
    Anastasia

    Like with most names, I generally either liked/disliked based on sound or the feel/association the name gives me.
