    Thank you both for your responses!!

    Mischa--I really like a lot of your suggestions-thanks so much!! My favorites are Marigold, Jessamine, Emmeline, Liv, Iris, Magnolia, and Romilly. Plus Edie, Romy, and Gwen.

    Iris has long been on my list! I tried to narrow my list down so I also left off Calla, Eloise, Sylvie, and Louisa, which are longtime favorites and not exactly "current crushes".

    Thanks again!!

    Oooh, OK, lets see....

    Astrid - Oh, this is completely and totally my current name crush at the minute! I love it! Makes me think of a really spunky but slightly quirky girl. Plus, I love astronomy, so I like the star connection.
    Cressida - I really like this name for a fictional character, but maybe not for a real person?
    Esme - Aw, I think this is a really sweet and classic name. Pretty.
    Freya - I used to really love this name a few years back. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's pretty, there's just others I like more now.
    Genevieve - I quite like it, it's unusual.
    Juno - Hmmm...I don't really know what my stance is on this name! I don't think I like it; maybe it sounds too close to "Junior" in my head?
    Minerva - Weirdly, I quite like this one! I would never be brave enough to use it, but I think it's cool.
    Oona - Naah...don't like it. Just personal taste.
    Serafina - Again, I would love this for a ficitonal character...maybe that has something to do with the character from Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Triology? Haha. I used to know someone with it as a middle name though, I think it would work well in that slot.
    Zinnia - I like other flower names more, but it is cool, not gonna deny it.
    Lily-Belle - I love Belle...Lily-Belle is definitely a little girl's name to me.
    Molly-Claire - I think it's alright. I'm not big on either name, but again, completely down to personal taste, I think both names in themselves are nice.


    Middles only:
    Pearl - You know, I would never ever have used this until I recently saw someone on Nameberry used it as a middle. I think it's quite classic in that slot (but wouldn't use it as a first)
    Bluebell - No...just...no. Personally!
    Paloma - Ehhhhh...not really. Actually, as you have this in the middle name section, would be OK. Wouldn't for a first.
    Petal - Again, no. I dunno why, I adore flower/botanical names! Maybe it's just too little girl only again.
    Tulip - Ehhhh...It's alriiiight. As mentioned, like other flower names more.
    Pia - I think this one is OK.


    Nicknames I love (but don't really love the obvious full names for)
    Posy - again, OK. Don't love, don't hate.
    Polly - I don't really like it...sorry!
    Effie - Ooooh, I love this one! I would totally use it rather than a full name!
    Hattie/Hedy - Loving Hattie atm too! Hedy sounds like a nickname for a surname boys at school would give each other.
    Vivi - Haha, feel like am repeating myself...It's OK. I quite like it, but not my fave.

    Hope that's helped!
