Cordelia - Love, and love Cornelia also
Charlotte - Love, despite uber-popularity
Elena - Like. I also like Eleni
Elizabeth - I don't like Beth names. But this is okay, I always associate it with Pride & Prejudice
Hazel - Love the name Hazel! Too bad my husband hates it
Isabel - Prefer Isobel, but I like Isabel as well (especially nn Izzy)
Juliet - Worst character ever, so I am not fond of the name

Sebastian - I used to really like this, I think I'm over it now though

Katherine- one of my favorite names. Classy, elegant, strong and feminine.I prefer the Catherine spelling.
