Well congrats on joining the boards: (I bolded my favorites)
Persephone - I like Persephone but with Penelope' drastic rise in popularity -> I sometimes wonder if Persephone is lumped in as a Penelope alternative.
Ingrid - I have an aunt named Ingrid so this has always been a "mom" name to me - it also feels a bit stern in my mind - but it does have a pleasant sound.
Isolde - I love Isolde if pronounced ee-ZAWL-da if you pronouce it more like ee-sold then I don't like it at all.
Peony - Peony looks too much like Pony and sounds too much like Peon. (I do adore the flowers it's just the word.)
Venus, Athena, Aphrodite, Artimes - I do like me a Greek/Roman goddess - these names are all very bold and evocative of very specific imagery - which I like. But I should say that I really only have minor characters on my list (like Iris and Echo).
Leonora - love. I prefer Eleonora because it give it this stuffy, regal, manor feel but the overly dramatic a ending gives it this quirky, fun feel of "I don't take myself or anything to seriously - and that's why I'm awesome".
Lisbeth - I like it as a nn for Elisabeth. It just looks cut off to me.
Forsythia - theoretically cool. But, when I say it out loud I keep thinking about bad and evil magicians and sorceresses in dark and looming caves.
Calliope, Halia, - these are the type of "lesser" greek character I was talking about above. they are all fun and all around great.
Jesminder - eh. I really don't love Jas-/Jes- names (except for Jasper). I honestly just never understood the appeal. (but I do have a hard time with most J names - those that I like I love but most I could just leave).
Calliatrix - This is the first time I came across this name, so naturally I tried looking it up, but I couldn't find anything. This just confirmed my feeling that its clunky and awkward and just nms.
Wenhaver - I really like Wenhaver - I'd be concerned with the average persons ability to pronounce it correctly but almost anything Arthurian legend related is pretty much cool in my book.
Pridwyn - see above.
Aithne - I like this little fire-cracker. I think she'd be a great mn - I don't love her enough as a fn.
Branwen - I have similar issues with the letter B as I do with the letter J (see above). This one is just nms.
Zelenka - I think of the composer and would probably save this as a quirky and cool mn for a boy instead of a name for a girl.
Tosia - I love Anton and Antonia and I think that Tosia is an awesome nn for the latter.
Thora - Love this as a nn for Theodora.
Theodora - I love Theodora. I think Thea, Thora, or Teddy are awesome nn that just add to the flare of this name.
Iolana - i like the meaning but I prefer Iolathe.
Anrid - nms.
Addfwyn - Cool name. Will look like a letter jumble to most non-welsh and non-name nerds. And will most likely be a beast for them to pronounce too.
Una - I have a really good friend by this name so the "little lamb" is definitely positively influenced by her. I think springy and light. Very bubbly and talk-a-tive and adventurous. Smart, studious and caring. I think it would be an awesome and meaningful short connecting mn if you wanted two longer names as fn and 2mn.
Millicent - Old fashioned and a bit stuffy. Thought that's also what I like about it. I don't think I'd name a child this.Little Lorelei - May 2016Endora - Merida - Viola - Zelda
Dexter - Felix - Gideon - Victor
