Waiting sucks! Penny for your thoughts?
It's been a while, so I thought I'd post a new thread with my current list. It's changed a lot due to the possibility that we may have to adopt. (TTC and having fertility issues on both sides) And honestly I don't know how crazy some of these names really are. I don't think they're weird but I have the feeling others will.
So, here it is, and I would be very grateful for feedback! Keep in mind the baby may be adopted, but who knows what culture.
Fifaltra - Old High Germanic for "butterfly" - nn Fifer or Fifa
Eveluna - nn Eve
Castalia - nn Cat or Tali
Plumeria - nn Luma
Feniccia - nn Fenna
Silena (see-LAY-na) - nn Silla
Swanilda - nn Swan (at least it's not Swanhilda???)
Esmeray or Esmerina - nn Esme
Indrina - nn Indy
Jenavara - old version of Guinevere - nn Jenna
Camellia - nn Cammy
Others I am not so sure about - Orfea nn Fey, Jilliana nn Jiji, Veruccia nn Ruca, Moschatella nn Chella, or Chella alone, and possibly Jintana or Valerianella

Fifaltra - This name doesn't sound too attractive to me, however I love the nickname options of Fifer and Fifa.
Eveluna - A gorgeous smoosh name!
Castalia - Lovely!
Plumeria - I'd prefer just plain Plum.
Feniccia - Not sure how to pronounce this one. Fenna's cute.
Silena - Very pretty. Though I wouldn't naturally pronounce this name as see-LAY-na. Silla is cute.
Swanilda - Sounds pretty much the same as Swanhilda to me.
Esmeray/Esmerina - Nice enough, but sounds made up.
Indrina - Nice, but I prefer Indira.
Jenavara - Sounds nice enough, but also sounds made up. Jenna is over-done in my opinion, but for a nickname it's okay.
Camellia - Never been a fan of this name. I prefer Camilla.
Orfea and Jilliana are nice. I'm not a fan of Moschatella, Chella, Jintana or Valerianella.[FONT=Times New Roman]

Castalia - nn Cat or Tali--not bad...prefer Calista
Plumeria - nn Luma--sounds like a disease
Feniccia - nn Fenna--sounds like a supplement
Silena (see-LAY-na) - nn Silla--too close to 'silly'--which used to be synonimous w/innocence, but not in this century.
Swanilda - nn Swan--eh
Esmeray or Esmerina - nn Esme--sounds villainous
Indrina - nn Indy--I like it!
Jenavara nn Jenna--prefer Guinevere/Gwen
