    My favorites are:
    Miriam: I really like the name Miriam, and I like the nn Miri
    Lyra: It's not something I would have thought of, but it's pretty and different
    Victoria: Classic but not common. I don't really like Vikki, but you can probably avoid it.
    Coraline and Caroline: I really like both of these, but I may like Coraline more.
    Josephine and Jocelyn: I have a soft spot for both of these names. Both of them, plus nns Jo and Josie, are great for kids but can also grow up with them
    Indira: reminds me of Indira Ghandi. While the end of her life was tragic, her lifetime accomplishments seem to override that
    Annika: I love this name for reasons I can't explain
    Penelope: This name always makes me smile. It sounds so happy.
    Alice: I like this one so much I would be using it for my own child if it didn't sound strange with my last name

    My least favorites are:
    Danica: I'm not fond of it. It makes me think of Danica Patrick
    Cambria: Just NMS, it's a little too place-y
    Pandora: 's box. Not the happiest story.
    Esmeray: NMS
    Hazel: it's one "old lady" name that doesn't do it for me. It makes me think of witch hazel
    Novalie: Makes me think of novelty
    Avalon: It's probably my own weird thing because my parents love Toyotas, but it makes me think "affordable sedan"
    Anastasia: also not the happiest namesake
    Evangeline: I'm from the Bible belt so this always makes me think of evangelicals, and I'm not religious. I think the media gives it a slightly negative connotation because they use it as a nice way to refer to religious radicals
    Emberly: It sounds made up

    The rest were names that I liked and I definitely think are usable, but they don't fall into "love it" or "hate it" for me.
