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.
*for middle name consideration only.
Thank you in advance!☼
Ariadne • Freyja • Sunniva • Octavia • Gaia • Isabeau • Juniper • Ianthe • Arolilja • Lalita • Echo

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

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.Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (17) | Future mummy 😏
