Ivy -- A little bit sassy. I see an Ivy being a little flirt. Ivy Elaine sounds nice to me.
Stella -- It's a big name. I don't know if it's because of Streetcar, but whenever I meet a Stella I feel like her name is too big for her. She can't quite become big enough to put her own stamp on the name, if that makes sense.
Alexandra -- I love this name. I wish more girls would use the full name. It's just got such a strength to it. But it maintains its femininity. Alexandra sounds like she could strong arm her way into ruling the world. It's a powerful name. And I do like the nickname Alex. It's a little sharp, but it's a good name. Also. I think Alexandra is a great middle name for all of these other names. I think it's got the length and syllables like Elizabeth that makes it a great counterbalance to almost any name, but it's also a bit fresher and a bit more exciting.
Willow -- A bit of a hippie name for me. I still like it though. Soft and sweet.
Zoe -- Too cute for me. It's a very cute name. Zooey Deschanel couldn't be more Zooey if she tried. Not that I dislike her, not that I think a Zoe can't be the perfect opposite of that. It's just not my taste.
Ava -- Classic, strong, Hollywood. Gumption. Ava is so simple, but it has that certain something. Ava Alexandra has a nice rhythm to me.
Miranda -- Very romantic and heavy. Mirrrrrrranda. It's a bit of a sexy name. It's still got sophistication though. It can be vixen, but it can be powerful CEO just as easily.
Charlotte -- So classic, so sweet, so soft. You can't go wrong. I prefer a name with a little more strength in it. Charlotte has no bite or flair, but it's still a fantastic name.
Scarlett -- Like Miranda for me, but I would skip it personally because of Scarlett O'Hara. I despise everything involved with that story.
Vivien -- Great name. I prefer the spelling Vivian a little bit, but it's not important. It's clean. It's classic. It's slick and sophisticated. Vivien is quietly powerful and elegant for me. A Vivien could take over the world without anyone noticing until she'd already made her way to the top.
Poppy -- Very sweet. Very cute. Very preppy. It doesn't grow up well for me, unless you already have enough money and you know you're going to be a socialite, in which case a name like Poppy is perfectly suited to your future profession. A doctor or lawyer named Poppy? I don't think so.
Violet -- There is something about this name that I don't like. It's got pretty letters and a pretty meaning. But the sound is unappealing to me. It's a bit harsh I guess. Ahh, the person above me said it's too close to 'violent.' That very well may be what's tripping me up.

I know an ivy with dark curls and blue eyes and she is beautiful. I love the name! Also love violet (antique but still modern) and poppy is cute and spunky.

Ivy – Love it! I love nature names and this is one of my favourites.
Stella – Cute!
Alexandra – not the biggest fan. Have you considered Alexandria or Anastasia? Or Angelica or Annalise or Amadea or Araminta?
Willow – Very cute!
Zoe – A bit too popular for me, but it is a really nice name!
Ava – Not the biggest fan. What do you think of Avalon? Or Ada or Abra?
Miranda – I don't really like it, but I understand the appeal! Nice name!
Charlotte – I prefer Charity and Cecily and Clementine and Cordelia and Clarity. Or Cecilia or Cassia! Nameberry had sort of ruined this name for me.
Scarlett – Nice! I'm not the biggest fan, but again, I understand the appeal.
Vivien – Nice.
Poppy – Super nice! I love Poppy.
Violet – Also love Violet!

Ivy - Okay, kinda boring. Would be a decent middle
Stella - Not a fan of this one; just don't like the sound.
Alexandra-- Okay, has neat history, but I don't like Alex on a girl
Willow - Don't like nature names much but this is one of the better ones in that category imo
Zoe - Makes me think of the muppet on Sesame Street. Too short for my liking and not a fan of Z names
Ava - Too common
Miranda - First I have a negative assosciation with a really really bratty child named Miranda, then I think Sex and the City
Charlotte - So many people love this one. I don't. I think it's going to be really trendy
Scarlett - It's growing on me, but I still don't care for it much
Vivien - My favorite on your list by far although I prefer Vivienne or Vivian
Poppy - Lots of people love this one, too. Not me, it just sounds funny to my ear and I think of opium poppies.
Violet - Okay, it makes me think of Violet in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (which is a negative association)
