    Eugenie
    Eulalie
    Fiorella
    Honora
    Juniper
    Leilani
    Lena (lee-na)
    Maelys
    Mireille

    Winter love this, not weird at all
    Anwen (Welsh) nice but nms
    Ffion (Welsh) not keen, not sure why
    Araminta very lovely
    Bronte (Bron-tee) quite like this, but if it is after the sisters my pronunciation would be bron-tay
    Dorothea very lovely
    Eira (ay-ra, Welsh) ok, but a bit lacking in consonents for my taste
    Dulcie i like this, i sort of like it a lot, but something holds me back
    Eugenie sorry but I find this ugly
    Eulalie pretty but a bit like ukelele
    Fiorella car/handbag
    Honora nice but hmmmm not sure
    Juniper sweet by very very berry!
    Leilani there is a uk glamour model by this name, which has ruined it a bit
    Lena (lee-na) lovely, short and sweet
    Maelys um, nope, "male is"
    Mireille delicious
    Posy very sweet, not sure on a grown woman
    Soraya

    Winter - It's alright. Definitely not too weird. If you like season names it's a unique choice as opposed to Summer or Autumn.
    Anwen - I like it. I love the meaning. A unique, feminine yet strong choice.
    Ffion - Too weird! The double consonant would mean frequent mispronunciation!
    Araminta - Dislike. Sounds like a type of tea to me.
    Bronte - Sounds too masculine.
    Dorothea - Alright. Just another simple variation of Dorothy.
    Eira- I like it... if others pronounce it correctly.
    Dulcie - Too unusual.
    Eugenie - Too old sounding.
    Eulalie - Too weird.
    Fiorella - WIERD.
    Honora - Another weird word name.
    Juniper - Love it! It's unusual, but modern-feeling.
    Leilani - Love it! Beautiful meaning. A little strange if your not native Hawaiian...but I still really like it!
    Lena - I also LOVE this name. It's short and sweet.
    Maelys - Too weird.
    Mireille -Too weird, many will mispronounce.
    Posy - Dislike. I don't really enjoy flower names. However, it isn't weird.
    Soraya - Not too weird, unique. It feels exotic!

    I'm not Hawaiian, but, Alannah is my middle name, but a few friends call me Lani because of it - I saw it as a nice way to sort of use my middle name (which is actually a favourite of mine) without actually using it.
