Elira - Kinda nice. Seems a bit made-up.
Alienor - Also kinda nice. Azenor is my favorite of the Eleanor variations. I also like Aliena.
Elysia - Lovely. Gorgeous sound and imagery.
Rosamund - Simultaneously cute, strong, fun and straitlaced. Love it.
Cressida - Really like it. Not the best namesake ever, but a really cool name regardless.
Ottilie - Eh. NMS. A bit too cutesy for me. I like to see it on others, though.
Zephyrine - I prefer just plain Zephyr on a boy, but Zephyrine is ok, too.
Nimue - Love it. So pretty and unusual.
Aliena - Love this one, too! I know it has "alien" in it, but it's just so pretty and Celia from As You Like It is a fantastic character (who doesn't love loyalty, kindness, and passing the Bechdel Test?)
Cerseis - Is this a mix of Cersei and Briseis/Chryseis? It's intriguing, but I don't think it quite works. It's kind of a tongue twister and makes me think of caesarean sections.
Noor - Love this one. It's so serene and wise-feeling.
Elisot - I can't quite get on board with the "sot" part.
Illyria - I adore Illyria--it's a gorgeous sound despite the "ill" beginning, and I love Twelfth Night.
Hespera - Eh. NMS. I feel like H as a first initial makes everything look frumpier, in most cases.
Olwen - I like the vibe, but not the sound.
Ostara - Pretty. O-names are awesome.Gwen

My favorites are Elira, Elysia, and Hespera.
Elira- I haven't heard this before, but it's very pretty! I would pronounce it el-ee-rah.
Alienor- I prefer Eleanor and its variants but it's a nice name. I would pronounce it ay-lee-en-oor.
Elysia- This is one of my two guilty pleasure names. I love the greek connection and the meaning. I would pronounce it el-ee-see-ah.
Rosamund- Nice, but not my favorite Ros- name. I would pronounce it rose-uh-mund.
Cressida- Pretty, but I can't imagine it on a little girl. I would pronounce it cress-ee-dah.
Ottilie- It's ok, sort of pretty, but not my favorite. I would pronounce it aw-til-ee.
Zephyrine- I like it alright, but I can't see it as a first name for a person. It's a nice middle name, though. I would pronounce it zeh-fir-een.
Nimue- I'm not very fond of it, and the sound isn't nice to my ears. I would pronounce it nih-myoo.
Aliena- I only see the word Alien in it, and I can't figure how you would pronounce it. ay-lee-en-ah? ah-lee-ay-nah?
Cerseis- Is this a combination of Cersei and Briseis? I like it better in theory than in reality. I would pronounce it seer-sees.
Noor- Noor has been growing on me lately, but it's not one of my favorites.
Elisot- I think this is a mashup of Elise and Eliot? I don't like it very much. I would pronounce it el-ih-sot.
Illyria- I like Illyria, it reminds me of Elysia. But I don't like it as much. I would pronounce it ill-eer-ee-ah.
Hespera- Hespera is actually really pretty, like a mix between Vesper and Hera. I would pronounce it heh-spare-ah.
Olwen- This reminds me of a fairy. It's very light. I like it ok. I would pronounce it ohl-wen.
Ostara- Its pretty, but not my favorite. Still nice, though. I would pronounce it oh-stah-rah.-lists currently under construction-
