    I adore Augusta, Imogen and Saffron. Some of the others might be nice in context w/middle & surnames.

    Oh wow, everyone is always so harsh on Agatha, but I agree. I can't like it either. It's just not youthful to most ears. Blythe, Genevieve, Maeve, Ophelia, Ottilie, Rosalind, and Rowena are all gorgeous. My favorites. (:

    My favorites: Astrid, Augusta, Delphine, Maeve, Ophelia, Rosalind, and Saffron

    Great list!

    Agatha- not a huge fan. It makes me think of Agatha Christie, so it's a name I associate with a really old woman
    Araminta- nms
    Astrid- Love love love
    Augusta- adore this name.
    Blythe- meh.
    Bronwen/Bronwyn- seems like a prep school name. not my favorite
    Cressida- pretty but I wonder how it might work in real life
    Delphine- I love this name
    Dulcie- nms
    Edeline/Adeline- I prefer Adelaide
    Edith- something about this name is a little harsh or rough around the edges. it's not my favorite. It's in that same category for me as names like Agnes and Delores. Vintage but not my style.
    Elspeth- nms
    Florence- prefer Flora
    Genevieve- like it
    Gwendolyn/Gwendoline- meh
    Imogen- nms
    Isadora-not a fan
    Ismeria (iz-mer-ee-ah)- nms
    Kathleen- Classic.
    Lavinia- not a fan, but for personal reasons
    Maeve- love
    Merewyn/Merewen- kind of like this. It flows nicely.
    Millicent- like it.
    Nerissa- nms
    Olive- cute
    Ophelia- adore this name
    Orlaith (Orla)- nms
    Ottilie-cute and nice flow but nms
    Rosalind- beautiful
    Rosamund/Rosamond- prefer Rosamund
    Rowena- like it
    Saffron- love
    Seren- nms

    Favourites:
    Agatha (I, for one, do like Agatha, it's on my middle name list along with Agathe and I think it's beautiful)
    Araminta
    Astrid
    Augusta (a name so rich on history and it both sound and look so majestic)
    Cressida
    Edith
    Ophelia
    Ottilie
    Rosalind
    Rosamund

    Alright:
    Bronwen
    Gwendolyn
    Kathleen
    Maeve
    Merewyn/Merewen
    Olive
    Orlaith (but only in this version, Orla is a very well-established boys name in Denmark so I can't get around to it as a girls name)
    Rosamond (for some reason I prefer it with an u, but Rosamond (and Rosemonde) is lovely too)
    Rowena

    Don't care for:
    Blythe
    Bronwyn
    Delphine
    Dulcie (is this a nickname? Makes me think of La Dolce Vita by Fellini)
    Edeline/Adeline
    Elspeth
    Florence
    Genevieve
    Gwendoline
    Imogen
    Isadora
    Ismeria

    Love:
    Araminta- magical, ethereal and otherworldly but grounded enough to be wearable. feminine but not frilly
    Astrid- sleek and sophisticated, lots of European flair
    Augusta- a lovely underused classic, feminine but strong, and I love the royal references
    Cressida- beautiful, nautical,
    Imogen- one of the quintessential British names to me. sweet, spunky, unique but totally wearable
    Ismeria- beautiful and unusual
    Lavinia- sounds very upper-class-British and sophisticated
    Maeve- dramatic, exciting, spunky. feels very Irish to me though
    Merewyn/Merewen- unusual but with familiar sounds
    Nerissa- gorgeous and powerful. I also love Nerissa from The Merchant of Venice (my favourite play)
    Ophelia- not too fond of the character, but the name has a beautiful dramatic sound
    Ottilie- down-to-earth but elegant, sounds like a member of the British nobility
    Rosalind- as you can tell already I love Shakespeare names! a great character to share a name with. as a horse lover I love the meaning "gentle horse"
    Rosamund/Rosamond- spunky, springy, nature-y and lovely

    Like:
    Agatha- a bit dated still, but strong. What about the Polish Agnieszka (ag-nee-esh-kah)?
    Bronwen/Bronwyn- nice and solid, but not very feminine
    Delphine- same as Bronwen
    Edeline/Adeline- I like Adeline much better, more classic and feminine
    Edith- strong, wearable vintage-chic name
    Elspeth- unique sound, solid name that ages well
    Florence- charming and sweet, vintage-chic, but popular in the UK and still dated in the US
    Genevieve- pretty, but I don't get as excited about it as most Berries
    Gwendolyn/Gwendoline- much prefer Gwendolyn. sweet, girly and demure
    Isadora- very girly, frilly and sweet
    Kathleen- familiar classic that works at any age
    Orlaith- I love it spelled Orla, Orflaith or even Orla. sweet, rarely heard
    Rowena- pretty and down-to-earth
    Saffron- sassy and stands out

    Dislike, sorry:
    Blythe- the sound is just a bit abrupt and harsh for me
    Dulcie- sounds prissy and stuck-up, and kind of nicknamey
    Millicent- still too dated and harsh-sounding for me
    Olive- I'm not a fan of the vegetable so find it an odd thing for a name to be associated with
    Seren- find it a bit masculine, prefer Serena
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy
