Leonie- so sweet and feminine. Love it.
Iris- love the flower name, it's familiar but not common
Elodie- feels younger and fresher
Aurelia- neither are really my style, but I would tire of the pronunciation issues between "loosha" and "loo-cee-ya"
Callista- nn Callie would be cute
Beatrix- guilty pleasure name for me. It's cute and feels classic.
Good luck!Expecting our first in feb 2014! Waiting to find out the gender until delivery day.

Leonie or Leonora - I chose spunk over frills.
Ivy or Isla or Iris - Iris and Ivy were close. Isla is far behind them.
Edith or Elodie - A vintage gem.
Lucia or Aurelia - I love both names so it can down to meaning. "Light" wins over "golden".
Aurora or Callista - I'm not a fan of the r's in Aurora. It's a difficult name to say.
Beatrix or Imogen - This was a tough one because I like both names. It finally came down to the meaning and Beatrix won!All the best,

Leonie >Leonora: I prefer the meaning of Leonie, but Leonie seems more childish than Leonora. Prefer Leontine nn. Leonie.
Ivy or Isla or Iris: I've recently adored Iris. Very beautiful and simple. Then I prefer Ivy. Sounds more like initials than a name. Prefer Ivory nn. Ivy. or Inverness nn. Ivy. Then I like Isla. I never understood the appeal. The spelling and pronunciation is difficult and needs to be taught and it just doesn't sound good to me.
Edith or Elodie: Edith as it sounds more established than Elodie.
Lucia or Aurelia: Aurelia for the meaning and sound. Lucia can be pronounced 2 different ways. I prefer the lou-see-ah pronunciation.
Aurora or Callista: Again, I prefer the meaning. Callista sounds heavier and will likely become Callie or Allie.
Beatrix or Imogen: Imogen sounds prettier and feels more mature than Beatrix to me.
