I have a friend name Mariyah and I think that is the muslim version of Mary (I may be wrong but it is something along those lines)...
I also know an Ameera of Indian descent
Beau as a girl name?
Esmée (original female spelling) is in the 200s in popularity so it makes sense the english spelling of Esmae would be there. Esmée is a really popular name in other parts of Europe.
Seeing Princess on the list makes me more empathetic to the British supermodel Jordan naming her daughter Princess... I still think many bad things about this name, but at least it is a common name in her country. I think Precious is along the same lines as Princess for me.
Blossom also deserves honorable mention as I do still think of the Powerpuff Girl.
I've also met an Ocean before

Beau is actually more common for girls than boys there! I actually want to give the members of the Pink Beau team a lesson in French so they realise they're naming their daughter a man's name, and the name they're searching for is Belle. I'm torn on Blossom, I want to love it, but can't. Oceana or Oceane or Oceania I like, Ocean I don't. It's also so hard to tell if they're kreeativ spellings or actual cultural ones tbh!

Beau but for a boy. I totally agree that they are looking for Belle.
I googled Mariyah and it is the name of the concubine of a muslim prophet.
Divine doesn't bother me that much as it reminds me of Destiny which is a fairly common enough name (Destiny is even Miley Cyrus' birth name).
Blossom I really could support as a middle name. I heard some weird names growing up (like Qu'3zi@h... a creative spelling of Kezia) and honestly what mattered to me more is how well the person wore the name. I think Blossom is miles ahead of Princess and Precious, it at least relates to a flower. They also apparently had a sitcom in the 90s where the title character was names Blossom. Everyone has that one name they love but are not sure if it would play off on a real child.

Divine I think I'm slightly ok with because I know a Daveena (although I don't like her...). I sadly can't use Beau, as my cousin took it about 23 years ago for her son, and....long story short, he's not someone you'd want your son sharing a name with. Blossom is like Snowdrop or Bluebell for me. Not an excellent first name choice, but a gorgeous, cute, and wonderful nickname!
Precious and Princess though....entirely different story. To me, that'd be like naming your child Tripp or Fall. (Yes, I know a girl who was named Autumn, then somewhere her name became legally changed to Fall)
