    New Top 5: feedback/opinions etc.

    I know this is a bit of a mix of ethnicities/origins etc, and they're not in order...

    Ophelia
    Jemima
    Eilidh
    Margaret/Greta (I really want to love Margarita but I can't not think of the pizza/cocktail)
    Cosima

    Also, this is sort of a sidenote, but I can't stop loving Domino at the minute. It's so intriguing and strangely glamorous to me. What do you think?

    Ophelia - love, love, love it. It's a MN on my short list. I feel like one of the few things holding me back from using it up front is the lack of nicknames--there are quite a few nns available; I just don't really like any of them. I love Ophelia, though.
    Jemima - I've never seriously considered it as a viable option as it's such a charged name here in America. I think it's quite pretty, though, and could have several lovely nn options. Plus, I like its meaning.
    Eilidh - LOVE! I love few Scottish names for girls, it seems, but I adore Eilidh. lovelovelove it.
    Margaret/Greta - I like Greta a lot, but have troubles getting behind Margaret. It just seems too harsh/austere for me. But I like Greta as a nn for Margaret much more than I like it on its own, so I'm torn here. haha.
    Cosima - I've been loving Cosima lately! It's so unexpected and so beautiful and lush. I would love to meet a Cosima.

    Ophelia, Eilidh, and Cosima are my favorites! I think they'd be pretty amazing as sisters, too--all very feminine and unexpected and rich with personality.

    Ophelia - Too much for me. The only O name for girls I really like is Opal, and the Shakespearean names I like best are Viola, Beatrice, and Imogen.
    Jemima - I like the meaning, "dove" but prefer the name Yonina.
    Eilidh - Pretty.
    Margaret/Greta - Dislike both, sorry. But I do like some of Margaret's international variations, especially: Marguerite, Margaux/Margot, and Megan.
    Cosima - It's interesting.

    I don't hate Domino, but I actively love Rosario.
