If you were to meet a young female with each of these names in real life, what would your opinion of the name be? You can be as honest as you'd like (but not rude please). ^_^
Sora (Japanese word for "sky". Pretty popular as a name in Japan for both genders (but mostly boys *I think*))

I love Elowen and Ceridwen. Have a good friend called Ceridwen (Ceri).
Some of the others like Fawn and Maple and River are pretty words- maybe just not as names. Although River on a boy seems nice.
Serena seems dated to me, and Sora sounds like Sore-a to me in English not as pretty.
Pandora and Fleur and Nova are pretty too- but the person wearing them will need to be used to correcting people and explaining the names.Proud mama to L. and S.E.R.

Ceridwen - Not much of a fan of Ceridwen. It's a little clunky for my taste.
Elowen -I like this much better! Very pretty!
Fawn - It's too dainty in my opinon. Like if the girl was very fair haired and soft spoken, it might be mice, but what if she's a wild child?
Fleur - This is one of those names I've never understood. The way I'm inclined to pronounce it sounds like floor
Maple - I really like Maple, so fresh and spunky!
Nova - Cute! If she's really fast she could be Supernova as a nickname, lol.
Pandora - I wish it had a better myth. But I love the nickname Panda, and the name itself is very pretty. I'd be excited to meet one.
River - This is one nature name I prefer on a boy, though it would be neat on an adventurous little girl.
Serena - too common.
Sora - How cute! So simple yet sophisticated and traditional as well.
My top 5: Elowen, Maple, Nova, Pandora, and Sora~Larissa

Ceridwen - Lovely and refreshing. I wonder if her family's Welsh?
Elowen - Love the sound and the meaning.
Fawn - Pretty, but a little childish.
Fleur - Pretty, but not something I would think of as first name material.
Maple - See above
Nova - I like it, even though it reminds me of "Where the Heart Is".
Pandora - So pretty! I would probably squeal if I met one in real life.
River - I like it better for a boy.
Serena - I like it, but not a favorite.
Sora - Strange, if she/he is not Japanese, or at least part.
My top five would be:
Catherine, Margot, Elsa & Henry, Felix, Cato
