    some help!

    Here are my thoughts on your list:

    Miriam - not my favorite. it makes me think of an older woman
    Danica - not my style.
    Callista - flockhart. Ally McBeal. Anorexia.
    Jasmine - Aladdin's wife.
    Cambria - it makes me think of dinosaurs (cambrian period). Just not entirely my style.
    Lyra (lee-ruh) - difficult to pronounce, will forever be correcting people.
    Georgia - I like GiGi (GG) as a nickname, but don't know if it fits an adult, more of an elderly woman
    Pandora - I don't like it. I think that naming your daughter after someone who was blamed for bringing evil into the world isn't great. Also makes me think of pandora radio.
    Victoria - it's very popular. It's pretty, and classic, but doesn't seem to fit with the rest of your names. Think about whether you want her to be Victoria _ (your last initial).
    Thessaly - pronounced tess-A-lee? I think there's a lot of room for confusion with this one.
    Luna - I like it - maybe for a middle name.
    Aurora - makes me think of sleeping beauty
    Coralie - Would cora be a nn? I like it.
    Coraline - Coralie is better.
    Caroline - nice. Makes me think of Caroline Kennedy.
    Liliana - A nice name, not my favorite.
    Rosalie - don't like this one. too old fashioned for my taste.
    Esmeray - no. Too many combinations of things. Sort of reminds me of Esmerelda, which makes me think of the gypsy from Hunchback of Notre Dame.
    Josephine - I don't like this name, but it might be from personal experience. But Josie has been tainted for me.
    Hazel - Too old fashioned. reminds me of witch hazel.
    Delaney - Delaney is my favorite name!!!
    Delaina - Too similar to Delaney, and I like Delaney better
    Jocelyn - Not bad.
    Amaria - a-MAR-ia? a-mar-IA? .. it's pretty, but a little confusing.
    Novalie - too out there for me.
    Indira - not a fan.
    Elowen - sounds like a witches name to me
    Merida - Reminds me of Disney's Brave. It's a pretty name though
    Zahara - Not a favorite of mine.
    Avalon - not bad.. maybe Ava as a nn? Could be a nice variation if you like the name Ava, but want something a bit more unique.
    Waverly - I don't like it. It makes me think of china.. like dishes.
    Gianna - pretty
    Annika - not a favorite. Reminds me of Danica.
    Cadence - I don't particularly like this one. It reminds me of older women for some reason.
    Leona - Lewis.
    Emmeline (emma-leen) - Not a favorite.
    Aveline (ava-leen) - Don't like this one... like emmeline better.
    Arcadia - Joan of...
    Chiara - Difficult pronunciation
    Penelope - I like this one... very pretty. Nellie or Nell as nn. Can grow with your child from infant, to kid, to adult. Very nice choice.
    Dahlia - Very pretty! To me, similar to Penelope. Love it.
    Vanessa - Not a fan.
    Alissandra - Pretty.
    Evangeline - Don't like it. It makes me think tele-evangelists.
    Magnolia - Pretty. Maggie as nn?
    Anastasia - Similarly to Josephine, not a favorite name of mine for personal reasons. Nice though.
    Mirabella - no
    Isabella - pretty but insanely popular!
    Aaliyah - reminds me of the singer
    Amaryllis - reminds me of the early 20th century. very old fashioned.
    Emberly - no
    Everly - nice
    Angelica - rugrats.
    Annabella - meh
    Scarlett - love!
    Augusta - I had a grandma anmed Augusta. But very old fashioned.
    Elizabeth - Super popular. But has mane nicknames.
    Alice - meh.

    I like a lot of your names, but I think that my top names are:
    Delaney
    Penelope
    Dahlia
    Magnolia

    These names have depth and history so I would keep them. (Lucky 13 )

    Miriam
    Caroline
    Rosalie
    Josephine
    Emmeline (emma-leen)
    Georgia
    Penelope
    Evangeline
    Angelica
    Augusta
    Elizabeth
    Alice
    Victoria

    Since my top picks have mulitple names with "ine" endings I will rate them as follows:

    1 Emmeline
    2 Evangeline
    3 Josephine
    4 Aveline
    5 Caroline

    These names would make pretty and/or quirky middle name choices.

    Danica
    Callista
    Jasmine
    Chiara
    Pandora
    Thessaly
    Aurora
    Coralie
    Coraline
    Liliana
    Esmeray
    Hazel
    Jocelyn
    Amaria
    Indira
    Elowen
    Avalon
    Annika
    Leona
    Arcadia
    Dahlia
    Magnolia
    Vanessa
    Amaryllis

    I would eliminate these names from your list. They're either too popular and overused, unattractive and/or incredibly trendy and don't age well.

    Cambria
    Lyra (lee-ruh) - it's usually pronounced "lie-ruh"
    Luna
    Delaney
    Delaina
    Novalie
    Merida
    Zahara
    Waverly
    Gianna
    Cadence
    Alissandra - Alessandra is the correct Italian spelling.
    Isabella
    Annabella
    Mirabella
    Aaliyah
    Emberly
    Everly
    Scarlett
    All the best,
    Mischa.
