My long list
I've recently added a lot of names to my list and would appreciate some general opinions on them. What do you think of the names? Are some too international? Dated? And also are there any associations you hold with the name? Sorry about the long list
Millicent nn Milly

Alba - It's not my style, but I can see the appeal. I'd love to meet a little Alba, though.
Adair - Really like this one! Exotic, but has the approachable nn Addie.
Amalia/Amelia - Makes me think of Amelia Earhart and the princess Catharina-Amalia. I think I slightly prefer Amalia, but both are gorgeous.
Amity - Not my style, but I can see the appeal.
Anna/Anika/Anouk/Nancy - I really like Anna and Anika, but Anika may cause some pronunciation issues. I'm neutral on Anouk, and Nancy makes me think of Sid Vicious' dead girlfriend.
Artemis - I'm not a fan of goddess names.
Athena - ditto, but I do think it sounds great. I like it better than Artemis.
Celia/Zelia - I like Zelia. Celia is too much an old lady's name here in Brazil, so it puts me off. I do love Cecelia, though.
Clea (Clay-uh) - Not a fan. I do love Clio and Cleo, though.
Clover - I really like this one! It reminds of Clover from Totally Spies. She was a bit of an airhead, though.
Electra - I'm not a big fan of the myth.
Elodie - Gorgeous! I really do not have any concrete associations with it, but it makes me think of melodies, which is nice.
Elowen - Love it! May cause some pronunciation issues.
Enid - Not my style, I think it's not quite ready for a comeback and it sounds a bit too abrupt.
Esther - Looove Esther! Nicknames Esti and Tess (stretch?) are lovely.
Geneva - I prefer Genevieve.
Gwedolyn/Guinevere - Really like both of them.
Fern - I like this one better as a middle name.
Fable - see Fern (but I like Fable a bit more!)
Lilac/Lavender/Mauve? - see Fern.
Luna - I can see the appeal and I like its meaning.
Marceline - I like Marcella better, but Marceline is lovely. It would make a gorgeous middle.
Millicent nn Milly - It's fine, just not my favourite.
Natalie - It seems a little bland next to some of your other choices, but it is definitely lovely.
Nova - I don't really like it, in portuguese, it's an adjective that means "new", so maybe that's why and not a real concern.
Nym - I like this one! Makes me think of Nymeria from Game of Thrones - she was bada**.
Oakley - Not my style.
Opal - I like it better as a middle.
Ruth - I really like this one!
Saskia - Love it! Exotic but recognisable, the perfect "sweet spot" name.
Scarlett - The "scar" part really puts me off.
Stella - Lovely. Makes me think of Stella Artois, though, but that's just me.
Talia - Not my style.
Temperance - It's a GP of mine!
Violet - Perfectly fine. I love it.
Waverly - Not my style.
Zinnia - This one intrigues me, it's cool.
The ones in bold are the ones that striked me. I think my ultimate favourites are Amalia, Adair and Esther, with Nym as my favourite in the GP category =P
Lovely list! =)
