    Help with Girl's List!

    I have been thinking a lot lately about my girl names' list. Mainly, this is because I am going to receive a baby girl soon from the Baby-Think-It-Over program that is held at my school. However, I would also like to possibly use some of these names fro my future children as well. Please help me narrow down my list and/or tell me what you like/dislike about the names. Thanks.

    Names:
    Abigail "Abbie"
    Adeline "Addy"
    Alexa "Aly"
    **Amelia "Mia"
    Aria
    *Aubrey
    **Ava
    Bailey
    **Baylor (MN only)
    Britton
    Charlotte "Carly"
    Chloe
    *Cora
    Delanie
    Emmelyn
    Eve
    Hannah
    *Isla
    **Juliet
    Kassidy
    *Keeley
    Khloe
    Lilly
    *Makenzy "Kenzy"
    **Madelyn "Maddy/Ella"
    **Maisie
    Olivia
    Paisley
    Piper
    *Regan
    Ruby
    Sophia
    *Summer
    Teagan
    **Tessa
    Violet

    *Means that I can't use them for the Baby-Think-It-Over program because there are people in my class that are named these names, but would still like to use them in the future.

    ** Means that I absolutely LOVE this name but want to have other opinions as well.

    I wish we had something like this program when I was in school. My faves are bolded below.

    I love...

    Abigail - a Biblical gem
    Adeline - sweet and vintage
    Charlotte - elegant and sophisticated
    Eve - there is beauty in one-syllable
    Hannah - soft and feminine
    Ruby - spunky and sassy
    Violet - see Ruby

    I like...

    Chloe - at least it's spelled with a "C"
    Alexa - I prefer Alexandra but this is ok
    Amelia - I like Emilia too
    Aubrey - overused but I don't mind it as long as it's spelled this way
    Ava - overdone but pretty
    Cora - I'm hearing this name alot along with Nora
    Lilly - I think Lily is the best spelling
    Olivia - this is very popular. I prefer Livia or Liv.
    Summer - although Autumn is my favourite season, Summer is my favourite season name.

    I dislike...

    Bailey - reminds me of a dog name
    Baylor (MN only) - sounds like a donkey call
    Britton - harsh sounding and unattractive
    Aria - trendy and best left to the opera world.
    Delanie - Delaney is the correct spelling.
    Emmelyn - Emmeline is gorgeous. Emmelyn is terrible.
    Isla - trendy
    Kassidy - Not a good name even spelled with a "C"
    Keeley - there are better Irish names out there
    Khloe - I just think of the trashy Kardashian family and it turns me off
    Makenzy - Mackenzie is the best spelling. I dislike "Mc-Mac" names.
    Madelyn - this spelling is a modern invention and takes away from the beauty of Madeline/Madeleine.
    Maisie - only for a nickname
    Paisley - whiney and weak
    Piper - trendy and cutesy
    Regan - trendy along with cousins Teagan and Megan
    Sophia - I prefer the French version of Sophie much better
    Teagan - trendy along with cousin Reagan
    Tessa - I prefer just Tess. Adding an "a" makes it too prissy for my taste.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I'm going to ignore the * names. These names jump out at me:

    Adeline
    Ava
    Charlotte -- prefer Lottie or Charlie
    Eve
    Maisie
    Piper
    Ruby
    Violet

    The only ones I strongly dislike:

    Aubrey
    Bailey
    Britton
    Keeley
    Paisley
    Regan
    Teagan

    Prefer Delaney to Delanie and Chloe over Khloe.

    All the others are in the middle / neutral ground.
