    Cool New Favorite Boho/ Nature/ Romantic/ Mythic First Names List & Combinations...WDYT?

    I'd like to know what you think of the names on the poll - do you prefer one over the others?

    Also, I enjoy reading the name lists of other "NameBerries" and have been inspired many times! At this point, I'm still only sure about Ulysses for a boy's name. But, after careful consideration, I realized the following are the only names I would consider using as a first name for a baby girl:

    Cara
    Alaska
    Isabeau
    Godiva
    Violet
    Bathsheba
    Juniper
    Eve
    Ferelith
    India
    Rain
    Pandora
    Bellatrix
    Arwen
    Ulyssia
    Vivaldi
    Utopia
    Gardenia
    Elysium
    Elysia
    Pearl
    Rose
    Emerald
    Seabrook
    Vivaldi
    Maebry (NB thanx to Lovemysweeties for noting this gem!)

    I wanted to know what others think of this list and/ or whether they could suggest some other names that complement or could be a better alternative to the names above?



    Lastly, just to give some pointers re my naming style, atm, my favorite combinations are:

    Godiva Maebry Fairylithe Juniper Hazel

    or

    Godiva Maebry Ferelith Juniper Hazel

    I even like Godiva Maebry Fairylight Juniper Hazel !




    However, I also like these combos:

    Ulyssia Vivaldi Rose

    Alaska Oriana Pearl Rose

    Isabeau Juniper Gardenia Rose

    Ulyssia Gardenia Pandora Rose

    Alaska Oriana Luna Lux

    Godiva Maebry Juniper Hazel Winter Rose

    Violet Pandora Rose

    Rain Juniper Hazel Maebry Rose

    Juniper Winter Hazel Rose

    Alaska Seabrook Oriana Emerald

    Maebry Winter Hazel Emerald Rose

    Godiva Maebry Juniper Rose

    Alaska India Zanzibar Rose

    Godiva Ferelith Maebry Pearl

    Rain Juniper Emerald Violet

    Utopia Ulyssia Vivaldi Rose

    Bathsheba-Emerald Juniper Hazel Ferelith Violet Pear

    Godiva-Pearl Ferelith Juniper Hazel Rose Aurora

    Bathsheba Ulyssia Vivaldi Rose

    Any thoughts or suggestions?? (NB I love Bohemian, nature-inspired/ botanical, romantic, antiquarian, uplifting, vintage, exotic, mythic, lyrical, whimsical, classical etc names)


    Thanxs!!

    Like, and they go together. Most of these have been up for consideration for my lists at some point ^^
    Isabeau
    Godiva
    Bathsheba - fell in love with this watching 'Beasts of the Southern Wild'
    Juniper
    Ferelith
    India - There is some controversy surrounding this one, I think it might sit better in the middle at least.
    Ulyssia - This one is new to me, I like it, but I think I need more time to get used to it before saying more.
    Gardenia
    Elysia - I like this one, but it's too close to Alicia for it to ever reach my lists
    Emerald

    Like, but seem like they belong together, not as part of the whole. Middle name material? I love both Pearl and Bathsheba, but not as sisters...
    Rain / Rose / Pearl / Eve / Cara

    Not too fond of
    Alaska - I'm always hesitant about place names, this one is too new. Reminds me of Saskia which I love.
    Violet - Too on trend, and I hear 'violent'
    Vivaldi - This one is for those who really love the composer. Makes me think of Vivendel, the Norwegian word for honeysuckle.
    Maebry - Too modern IMO
    Seabrook - Would make a cool middle for a boy. Again not fond of place names.
    Elysium - The -um ending seems masculine to me.
    Utopia - With dystopia so thrown about with regards to films and books these days, this one could be easily misinterpreted. Topaz would be better.
    Arwen - I like LOTR, but I never like Arwen. Unless you pronounce it all elvenly, it just sounds like it lives underground (like Morgan)
    Bellatrix - Too much going on with this. Associations and sounds.

    I'm really not sure how to suggest anything to you, your style is way over the top compared to what I would ever endeavour.

    I made a hippie list of combos once with four names, three of them word names, maybe you find something you like among those?
    Evening Amparo Calendula Delight (Evie)
    Verbena Clemency Comfort Kisseis (Vera)
    Lilivere Minnow Alizarin Bloom (Liv)
    Amnesty Eglantine Starling Mirèio (Nessa)
    Rixende Libellula Mint Loveday (Rix)
    Minzica Mercy Marjoram Bluebird (Minna/Mimi)
    Villanelle Bayou Persimmon Ludivine (Nell)
    Somerilda Thistle Passiflora Sincere (Sosie)
    Betony Everild Remember Mazarine (Nia)
    Lirienne Remedy Prudence Pennyroyal (Lira)
    Olallie Blithe Melpomene Magpie (Lola)
    Clarity Ocarina Coppelia Pearl (Clare)
    Esmeray Triskelion Litchi Gladiola (Esme)
    Jacaranda Meissa Meadowlark Solstice (Cara)
    Sparrow Clandestine Behati Honeysuckle (Ro)

    For some less wordy, eccentric choices (They're all really long, I think short eccentric names are harder to come by):
    Alastríona / Annevieve / Audovera
    Basileia / Betsabé / Bilquis
    Chryseis / Caspara / Cybele
    Decembra / Despoena / Doveva
    Eidothea / Epopee / Eumeneia
    Felixia / Fiora / Frostine
    Genoveva / Gomeisa
    Havilah / Hendeca
    Idumea / Imriska / Ivalo
    Jolivet
    Kirsikka / Kazimiera (kah-zee-MYE-ra) / Kasimira (kah-zee-MEE-ra)
    Leocadia / Liliola / Lluvia
    Mansikka / Marjorana / Myrto / Mirsada
    Nimue / Niniane
    Ombeline / Ourisia / Ovidia
    Penthesileia / Photine / Prelidiana
    Queniva / Quitterie
    Rosenda / Rosmerta / Roswitha
    Silvestra / Solemnia / Sanaa
    Thallo / Timea / Toivoa
    (don't have any U names I'm afraid ^^)
    Vetiveria / Viatrix / Virelai
    Williamina
    Xenokleia
    Yvaine
    Zenovia / Zosime


    And it might not seem like it from what I've written, but I really like looking up unusual names I think there are far too few discussions and threads about the truly unusual ones here on Nameberry. Or they sadly don't get much attention.
