    Which is your favourite -DA name?

    Whilst looking through my girls list I suddenly noticed that several of them end in -DA.

    I must love that sound!

    My Top 10....
    Clothilda, Drusilda, Elfrida, Esmeralda, Freyda, Frieda, Isolde (ok, cheating a little, but I pronounce it iz-OL-da), Matilda, Merida, Zelda

    I'm just wondering, which is your favourite and why? If your true favourite is not listed, please pick the one you like best, then list your real favourite in the comments! Much appreciated!

    Honourable mentions...
    Ada, Clarinda, Cressida, Dorinda, Eda, Emeralda, Giselda, Magda, Nerida, Yolanda, Zvezda

    Oh , I absolutely adore Isolde ! Its so beautiful , unique , romantic & not frilly .
    My second best is Zelda & Cressida which I think they are lovely too .

    Isolde is gorgeous, along with Merida and Ada, but in the end I chose Matilda. With a classic sound and look, this name is perfect.

    Top Three "DA" Faves

    1 Matilda - strong and majestic with a spunkiness
    2 Esmeralda - exotic and mysterious
    3 Clothilda - clunky and vintage

    Honorable Mention:

    Zelda - sounds otherworldly and has a literary connection (maybe not such a good one).

    Other "da" ending names I like are: Frida (this spelling), Veda, Zinaida, Clorinda, Alida, Andromeda, Miranda, Lucinda, Belinda, Casilda, Candida, Alda, Farida, Mafalda, Theda, Romilda and Nerida.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
