    Long, lyrical, and a little bit magical

    So, my husband told me he actually really likes long first names with our last name. This is a list of some of my favourite names of 3+ syllables, this list including some offbeat ones. Please let me know what you think of them, and if they're usable.

    They're not ranked in any particular order of preference. Some of them I'm thinking of as middle name material, but I'd be interested to hear which you think work up front or which should be MNs only.

    Immanuela or Emmanuella
