    Ten for review

    I am having such a hard time with girl's names at the moment...I'm blaming it on the fact that there are far too many gems to choose from, yet at the same time, I haven't got any single one or even a few that I'm head-over-heels in love with. I would love some reviews/comments on the following ten names that are in my sights at the moment (if you've only time to comment on one or two, I'd appreciate that too). While I do appreciate the typical love/like/dislike lists, I'd much prefer to hear just WHY it is you feel that way about the name.

    Lalita
    Ariadne
    Blithe*
    Sunniva
    Boheme*
    Aviva
    Calliope
    Anja
    Lotus*
    Sarai*

    *for middle name consideration only.

    Thank you in advance!

    Lalita - I don't like this one, maybe because it sounds too Latino
    Ariadne - like this Greek name, but I feel it's hard to pronounce
    Blithe* - this name sounds too short, but it's OK name
    Sunniva - I usually love three-syllables names ending with -ah, and I like that this name is unusual and Scandinavian and love nickname Sunny
    Boheme* - I like Bohemian movement, so I like this name
    Aviva - sounds too similar to Ava, but it may be remarkable enough to differ from Ava
    Calliope - love this Greek name and love 3+syllables gentle names and love the muse
    Anja - don't like nja sound
    Lotus* - love this word name and love how exotic the name is
    Sarai* - prefer Sarah, but this is interesting spin on more popular name

    *for middle name consideration only.

    Lalita- I like the meaning, but I don't like the sound.
    Ariadne- Love!!! Great meaning, and sound, but possible pronunciation issues?
    Blithe*- Sounds a bit harsh to me, kind of reminds me of strife.
    Sunniva- I don't like it, not entirely sure why. Nn Sunny is cute though.
    Boheme*- Okay, sounds very exotic and adventurous.
    Aviva- Reminds me of the insurance, not a fan.
    Calliope- Love!!! Beautiful meaning, sound, and mythological figure
    Anja- Okay, no strong feelings towards it.
    Lotus*- Like, definitely agree that it's best as a middle.
    Sarai*- Dislike, looks way too close to Safari.
    My favourites are: Calliope & Ariadne.

    How is Ariadne pronounced? I love "Ari names" and if I'm saying this right, it's beautiful!
