General critique of my favourites?
Okay, so my list looks something like this right now, I'd love to hear what you think:
and I'm probably adding Ophelia or Octavia, I just can't choose my favourite right now. I'd love some feedback

Fenella- not my style, but I can see the appeal. Briella?
Jemima- a little old for me, I guess.
Beatrix- love this! I find it more vivacious than Beatrice.
Eilidh (AY-lee)- here in the USA, it would get mangled horribly. A pretty name, though.
Sibylla/Billie- much prefer Sibyl. Sibylla feels heavy to me, and Billie is a no-no for me.
Jessa- Tessa? Jessamine?
Clementine- I'm quite fond of this one.
Annabella- a little heavy for me. Prefer Annabel.
Lettice (luh-TEES)- reminds of lettuce, and I doubt many would pronounce it as you do.
Ailbhe (Alva)- same thing as Eilidh.
Amelia- pretty. A little trendy for me though.
I feel like Ophelia is still tied to Shakespeare. Octavia is lovely though; just expect the question "Is she really your eighth child?" Both are pretty names though.A writer and a student. Just another berry, probably under-ripe.

Fenella - Always reminds me of Fennel - not a bad thing, but it IS a vegetable or whatever
Eilidh (AY-lee) - this is the name of a girl that stole a boyfriend from me so I can never like it. :P
Sibylla/Billie - I prefer sybil to be honest
Jessa - Short and sweet, like it!
Clementine - a bit too frou-frou for my tastes
Annabella - very sweet, like this one a lot
Lettice (luh-TEES) - no matter what I'll always read 'lettuce'
Ailbhe (Alva) - I think that she'd always have so much trouble with people saying/spelling it wrong
Rosemary/Romy - very cute, love the nickname
Amelia - I like it, but it's the number one girls name where I live so it's too common for my liking at the moment
Celeste/Celestine - I like it!╔══════════════╗

Fenella: I think you have better -ella names on your list.
Jemima: Cute! Nickname Jemma would be adorable.
Beatrix: I really like Beatrix - so fiery yet wearable.
Eilidh (AY-lee): very pretty, but oh, those Irish names, how they baffle non-name nerds!
Sibylla/Billie: I have never liked the sound of this.
Jessa: Pretty! I think this can stand on its own, but have you ever considered Jessamine nn Jessa?
Clementine: Never my favorite, but it's grown on me. I still think of the fruit, though.
Annabella: beautiful! I think it's a dazzling name.
Lettice (luh-TEES): It sounds a little made up to be honest. And I hate to be blunt, but it reminds me of lettuce.
Ailbhe (Alva): I don't find the sound very attractive, but there's nothing really wrong with it.
Rosemary/Romy: I prefer Rosemarie, but I have a good friend named Rosemary ("Rose") so it has good associations for me. Romy is an awesome nickname.
Amelia: Very pretty. I've heard it's pretty popular, but I haven't seen it very often.
Celeste/Celestine: I love Celestine. So pristine and sparkly!~*~**~*Larissa~*~**~*

Fenella- It just reminds me of Fennel.
Jemima- Quite nice (too close to my name)
Beatrix- Love!!! Love!!! Love!!!
Eilidh (AY-lee)- Not a fan of the sound, I love how it looks.
Sibylla/Billie- This one's cute.
Jessa- I prefer this as a nn for Jessamine.
Annabella- I prefer Arabella a lot more.
Lettice (luh-TEES)- There's something about Lettice I don't like, probably because it reminds me of Letitia, which I really don't like.
Ailbhe (Alva)- Love!!!
Rosemary/Romy- Romy's cute! And I quite like Rosemary as well (just the name, I hate the herb :P)
Amelia- Reminds me of Amy Pond, from Doctor Who (), so I have a soft spot for the name, but I also know two in my year, and it's getting quite popular atm (I think).
I don't really like Octavia or Ophelia (or many O names), so I'll just pick Ophelia.Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (17) 😏
