    If I like these names, I'll love ...

    I've reached a point with my favourite girls' names where I look at them, and I still like them, but I'm almost bored by them now. I'd really love some new, different ones to ponder. Can anyone offer some suggestions?

    I can be pretty picky but apparently a lot of my favourite girls names share these things:
    - a mythological/classical background (eg Diana, Clio, Phoebe, Persephone, Freya, Artemis, Juno, Thea)
    - unusual yet established; not made up (eg Lux, Faye, Pearl, Willa, Piper, Phoenix, Arabella)
    - nature influenced (eg Fern, Rose, Daisy, Tansy, Arden, Elowen, Terra, Violet, Posy)
    - spunky flair but also musical, rhythmic flow (eg Aria, Aurora nn Rory, Lydia, Maren)

    These are some names I've only really just started loving:
    Noa
    Elsa
    Tansy
    Suri/Suria
    Scout

    Can anyone throw some names that they think I'd like at me?
