Lena - I like this name pronounced the European way (LAY-nuh) not the North American way (LEE-nuh).
Margaret - I prefer Marguerite but I like Margaret too. Margaret has loads of wonderful nicknames but Margie is "dated". Why not use Margot, Maisie, Greta, Maggie or May?
Frances - A solid, girl-next-door choice. Love this name!
Meera - I know this is an authentic Hindi/Sanskrit spelling but I prefer Mira.
Josephine - A grand lady of character and distinction!
Mardee - sounds like Marty. I don't find this attractive.
Alma - This name has grown on me. It has vintage charm.
Susannah - I love this Blbical gem
Clara - sweet and vintage
Hazel - There are other colour/nature names I like better
Eva - A pretty name of just three letters!
Audrey - Elegant, classy and ladylike
Cecilia - a little too frilly for me. I prefer either Celia, Cecile or Cecily.
Celia - A great Shakespearean name
Sophie - I love this French version much more than Sophia
Evelina (Eva and Lena all in one!)
