Help with baby girl names please?
Longtime lurker, first time poster. Wondering if you can help me with narrowing down our girl name choices. I'll stick with first name choices for now and maybe do a second post on middle names if I'm able to narrow down the first names. Please be as honest as you like, that's why I'm doing this- to get unfiltered opinions!
(Names are listed in no particular order).
I should mention that for either Valentina or Veronica, we would call her "V" or "Vivi" depending on middle name.

Valentina -- This one is a little over-the-top for me. I also can't help but associate it with Valentine's Day. It's incredibly romantic. If I ignore that, it has many appealing sounds to it and makes a very pretty name. I think it makes a great potential middle name.
Willa -- have really grown to love this one. I love the simple charm of it.
Cecily -- Not a fan.
Esme -- A lot of nameberries love this name. I don't.
Athena -- I think this is a lovely name that is different but accessible.
Veronica -- Not a fan.
Farrah -- always think of the actress but honestly would love to meet a little Farrah.
Elsa -- It's a little matronly for me, but I think there is a sweetness about it as well.

Valentina - love. V is a cute nn, as is Nina.
Willa - this is pretty but it feels a bit weak to me, like it's missing something.
Cecily - i like this one a lot. This may be due to association, but this name feels a bit mysterious, intellectual, artistic.
Esme - love. Short, sweet, a bit exotic.
Athena - very cute and spunky.
Veronica - not my favorite, tho it does have an edgy- ness that I like..
Farrah - pretty but similar to Willa, all soft, no edges.
Elsa - pretty but feels like it's getting very popular. Maybe just on Nameberry....
So my faves are Valentina, Esme, Cecily and Athena.Top Contenders:
Cora ~ Esme ~ Fiona ~ Gwyneth ~ Hazel ~ Lila ~ Mara ~ Sylvie ~ Thea ~ Zara
Archer ~ Donovan ~ Emmett ~ Ezra ~ Julian ~ Leo ~ Rhys ~ Sawyer ~ Theo ~ Xavier

Valentina--gorgeous! My current favorite is Ava-Valentina.
Cecily--nice. Prefer Cecile.
Esme--I still think of the Disney villain from the Kuzco cartoon.
Athena--gorgeous! A long time favorite!
Veronica--pretty, but I much prefer Veronique (mn)
Farrah--too associated w/Fawcett
Elsa--ok...too close to Elsie (the cow)

Valentina--- GORGEOUS. I would love to meet a little Valentina, as long as her nickname is never Tina.
Willa--- Very sweet and fun.
Cecily--- I much prefer Celia.
Esme--- One of my all time favorites.
Athena-- ANOTHER one of my all time favorites that I'll sadly never get to use.
Veronica--- I don't like this at all. I think you have much better choices on this list. It just sounds dated to me.
Farrah-- Another gorgeous one. I've always found the spelling awkward for some reason, even though the sound is wonderful.
Elsa--- Not my favorite on the list, but it's not terrible, just nms.
You have great taste! Athena, Willa, Valentina, and Esme are my favorites.18 | Name lover | No babies, just planning.
