    Thoughs on these names?

    This is my list of top names, I'm curious to see what you all think about the names! Please be honest (but without being rude, like, I'm more likely to keep your comments in mind if you say "I don't like this name, I just don't see the appeal" rather than if you were to say "that is the ugliest name I've ever seen in my life, do not name your kid that"). Also, feel free to suggest names you think I'd like going by my favourites! Thank you

    These I really like:
    Olive
    Adeline
    Genevieve
    Gwendolyn/Gwendoline
    Lavinia

    These are okay:
    Rowena - pretty
    Isadora - nice
    Rosalind - pretty
    Rosamund/Rosamond - nice
    Ophelia - not bad
    Cressida
    Imogen
    Kathleen - bit dull compared to the rest of your list. The only one from your list where I know multiple people with the name.
    Maeve - this is a bit open and mouthy for my taste, I prefer Mavis or Eve or Mae
    Astrid
    Florence

    These are okay, but they're too unusual for my taste/location
    Augusta
    Nerissa
    Merewyn/Merewen
    Seren
    Araminta - I don't like the "mint" bit

    I'm not fond of these:
    Agatha
    Ottilie
    Blythe
    Orlaith (Orla)
    Saffron
    Delphine
    Bronwen/Bronwyn
    Millicent
    Ismeria (iz-mer-ee-ah)
    Elspeth
    Edith
    Dulcie - "I'm dull, see?"
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    Millicent - a million cents?
    Orlaith - nms

    Love:
    Araminta (I like the nn Minty, too)
    Augusta (feels so feminine)
    Blythe (one of the happiest sounding names)
    Gwendolyn (prefer the Gwendolen spelling, but this name is magical)
    Imogen
    Lavinia
    Rosalind
    Rosamund/Rosamond
    Rowena

    Like:
    Agatha
    Astrid
    Bronwen/Bronwyn
    Delphine
    Edeline/Adeline
    Edith
    Elspeth
    Florence
    Genevieve
    Isadora (definitely the best of the "Is" names)
    Maeve
    Millicent
    Nerissa
    Olive (though not as adventurous/pretty as some of your other choices)
    Orlaith (Orla)
    Ottilie
    Saffron

    Dislike:
    Cressida (I think of the car)
    Dulcie (not a fan of the "du" letter combination)
    Ismeria (seems like it would have pronunciation issues)
    Kathleen (dated)
    Merewyn/Merewen (reminds me of Merlin, therefore doesn't feel feminine)
    Ophelia (I don't like the sound or the associations)
    Seren (feels masculine)
    Ezra, Finn, Hamish, Nathan, Roland, Tobias
    Bonnie, Clementine, Greta, Hermione, Matilda, Wren
