Amazing list - they're all so magical! To be quick I'll just give feedback on the ones I love...
Lake - I don't know why this has appealed to me recently. I read that Lakesha was originally an ancient North African name pronounced ''layk-sha'' and I just fell in love with the Lake- part. Just a GP though, a bit too hippy for my tastes as lovely as it is.
Bunny - another GP! Haha, you might hear that a lot. It's an adorable name but I think the Playboy connotation is too strong, I couldn't do that to my daughter.
Ursula - Love this, so magical and underused. nn Sula is adorable
Thyme - I love how Earthy this is, it reminds me of the song Wild Mountain Thyme which breaks my heart.
Sixtine - LOVE THIS! Another major guilty pleasure, it's been on my list since I heard it on a thread a few months ago (baby's dad was French I think). It's absolutely beautiful but I couldn't use it outside of France because of the sixteen thing.
Alida - never heard this but it's beautiful.
Nancy - Love Nancy, it's a family name for me but sadly too popular in the UK now (about #100 I think)
Kirsty - So cute and Irish. It feels so homely and happy.
Agnes - Another family name, I adore Agnes.
Laney - I like this a lot but it's not really my style, usually. I have a weird love of Delaney (and Tierney) too.
Posey - So pretty with lovely imagery.
Deirdre - Again, so Irish and brilliant. Really underused.
Genesis - Not my style but I secretly really like this for some reason. I like a lot of religious but Biblical people for some reason.
Imogen - Favourite of mine, I love it.
Constance - Same as Imogen. Constance is gorgeous.
Betsan - Love this. It feels amazingly Scottish to me.
Haven - See Genesis.
Enid - Love this for Enid Blyton, really sweet.
Harriet - My cousin's name, I didn't like it at first but it's been growing on me.
Lotus - so pretty but sadly a GP for me.
Penthia - I love all Pen- names, they sound so Cornish and magical. Penrose is another fave.
Lavender - gorgeous, but a GP for me.
Leanna - I just love how this looks for some reason. It's fairly dated and overused but this spelling lightens it a bit.
Fay - Again, so magical. It reminds me of looking for fairies as a child.
Kitty - Adorable, used quite a lot in the UK so I don't think I'd ever use it.
Fiara - Lovely. Never heard of this but much prefer it to Fiona.
Tamar - Not my thing but I love how this sounds.
Cressida - Love the Shakespeare reference, it reminds me of the ocean.
Maple - I actually had a dream about this and started liking it. But I really do.
Megan - Overused and slightly dated but I still love this, mainly for nn Meg.
Anabel - Lovely, probably my favourite spelling. It feels timeless and worldly.olivia, seventeen, obsessively maternal.

Estella - Oona - Margaret - Imogen - Billie - Eilidh - Jemima
Emmett - Eoghan - Wilf - Alec - Nicholas - William - Hugh
