Rosalie - it used to be the ONLY Rose- name I liked. I still like it a lot, but I'm not sure it's my favorite anymore (I really like Rosamund and Primrose, and even Ambrosia...). I think Rosie's adorable, honestly. So that makes me love it even more. I'm not a huge Rose fan, but I do like Rosalie a lot, and I love Rosie.
Emmeline - LOVE! It was my favorite name about 5 years ago, and I still really love it. It's just utter perfection. I love it.
Ellena - how are you saying this? eh-LEE-nah? Ellen-ah? El-ay-nah? I like the idea of it, but I feel like Elena is just simpler all around, and much more aesthetically pleasing. I do admit I have a fondness for the Ellen-ah prn., but I think Elena just looks classier.
Audrey - love! It's not on my list now, but it goes on and off, and it seems like I'm always crushing on it. I'm not sure I can see me with an Audrey, but I do love it a lot.
Hazel - lovelovelove! Like Audrey, I'm always loving it, but it never seems to make the cut. I would love to meet a little Hazel.Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller

Rosalie – I secretly love this name. I’d like to see someone actually use it.
Emmeline – Too sweet for my taste. To me this is a little girl name.
Ellena – I prefer Elena or Elaina
Audrey – A bit dated but in a good way. I think there will always be a place for Audrey.
Hazel – Not my favorite, but it’s growing on me. I read a book about a witch named hazel when I was a kid, and the association is hard for me to break.

Rosalie- Very sweet. To me, this has more of a Twilight Association than any of the other names (Like Bella, Edward, or Jacob.) But it's a pretty name regardless, so.
Ellena- It's not BAD, just nms.
Audrey- Classic and feminine. Can't go wrong with Audrey. It's probably the "safe" pick on this list.
Hazel- I feel like it takes a certain kind of kid to be able to pull off the name Hazel. I like it, but I would never use it.Kaitlyn | Name lover | No babies, just planning.

Rosalie - I strongly dislike this... the Twilight ruined it for me, partly, but it just seems trendy/overly-sweet/pretentious... I don't know why but something about Rosalie/Amelie/Coralie on a non-French child seems off to me. I prefer Rosaline.
Emmeline - I love the emma-leen pn and I like the association of Emmeline Pankhurst - but I heard Emeline the other day and much prefer that spelling.
Ellena - the double l looks awkward here (I'm assuming it's eh-len-ah, not Elena). I'd use Eleanor pronounced the same way.
Audrey - not my thing but it's a sweet name.
Hazel - cute... I don't see why people think it's so unusable? I think it's on par with Iris/Willow/Rose etc. It's sort of outdated in the UK... Hazel is more likely to have sisters Andrea/Debbie than Phoebe/Isla here.much love and i are waiting for you;
