My fave Girls List
What are your thoughts on my favorite names in the list, do you have any new suggestions that fit my style? Any middles that you think they should have? I love the idea of Juliet and Lily as middles
My favorite girls names
Eliana-my daughters Hebrew name which is the name we use for her, I don't mind total honesty if you don't like it.
Bella- My daughter is Eliana Beatrice and I like the idea of nn Bella but figure most wouldn't get it, sometimes I call her Ella
Kalani-This would have been my husbands name if he were a girl, think its pretty though not really what I usually go for
Aria-I like this but I think its going to be trendy, Ella is trendy to though and probably my most favorite name
Zahara-nn Zara I like this in spite of Zahara Jolie-Pitt, I also love the name Jolie or JolietMommy to
Elianna (Ella) Beatrice and
Joseph (Joss) Arthur

Ella - super cute, usable, love it
Eliana- not my style at all, to me it sounds like two names were put together in a creative way, however it is definitely usable
Elysia - same as above
Leilah - Lila or Le - ee - lah ?
Reina - if pronounced like Raina then I prefer the Raina spelling
Wren - very sweet
Juliet - love it but I just adore the Juliette spelling
Samara - not a big fan of Sam- names but it's a very usable name
Bella- not as a full name but a very sweet nickname
Kalani- sounds very hawaiian to me but nice name
Elise/Elyse - LOVE Elise (especially as a middle name) but I hate random "Y"s in perfectly fine spelled names
Talia - reminds me of the Youtuber
Keturah-nn Kate - not my style at all
Annelise - where I live it is considered an old lady name however it does sound very cute in english
Hannah - very boring
Aria- love the name in english, couldn't use it where I live as it resembles a word used in WW2
Faye - cute
Leah - I like the less popular spelling Lea better
Leia - Star Wars
Lily - cute but boring
Zahara-nn Zara - Zara is lovely not a fan of Zahara though

Eliana - your daughter's name is lovely! Ella works as a nn, and Bella for Eliana Beatrice is adorable! I think Eliana rules out Elysia, Elise, and Elyse unless you plan to use them as middles.
Keturah - this is a beautiful name that fits really well in your sibset. I'm not crazy about nn Kate at all, quite frankly. I think it's clever to pull Kate from Keturah, I just personally find the name Kate too common to be interesting.
Juliet - so romantic and feminine
Faye - fresh and spunky
Aria - it is becoming popular, but the name itself still has freshness and sparkle. I think it's a good match stylistically with Eliana.
Not my faves:
Lily - pretty, a bit common for my taste.
Leah, Hannah - solid Biblical choices, just too common for my taste, and a little plain-Jane next to Eliana. Leah could actually work as another nn for Eliana if you wanted.
Leia, Leilah, Reina, Kalani - I find these all rather insubstantial compared to the rest of your choices.
Samara - I loooove the sound of this name, but ever since that movie The Ring came out, she's always associated with death and horror for me.
Zahara nn Zara - I prefer Sarai
Joliet - Juliet is a million times betterZion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Ender _____ ~ Caspian _____ ~ Tobias _____
Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Fawn or Ophelia Wren ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ and second-guessing River Selene
Cirina Wryn, Narnia Rose, Luna Seraphine, Parthenia Nyx, Astoria, Illyria, Gwyneira, Farasha, Serafina, Senara, Soraya, Faerydae
Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Hawthorne, Kenshin, Bastion, Remiel, Atreyu
