    Penelope, Eleanor, and Beatrice all come to mind.

    I adore the nickname Penny and Penelope suits my style but I just can't get into it! Eleanor sounds down right weird with my nasally accent. Beatrice is sort of similar to Eleanor but not at bad.

    Myrtle - it works nicely with my names, but I can't commit to it
    Adelaide - also works perfectly with my names, but I can't get behind
    Bonnie - my grandmother's name, so I feel like I should adore it, but I dont
    Kitty/Dolly/Birdie - too cute for me, more of a pet name.
    Posy - I love this but there's too many negative comments for me to be ok with it
    Sylvie - I dislike the sound of this one, but it looks gorgeous
    Vivienne - see Sylvie
    Hazel - very much my style but I don't feel attracted to it
    Claudia - I should adore this, but it just reminds me of the witch in one of my favourite movies as a kid
    Emmeline - I vastly prefer Emma or Emily, but I'm not sure why
    Delia - reminds me of the mum from Beetlejuice too much
    Marguerite - I dislike the Marg sound.
    Millicent - I prefer Millie to the full name
    Constance - too stodgy for me to use :/

    there aren't too many for boys though
    Lauren. Bethany. Martha. Hollie. Maisie. Megan. Ashleigh. Ellie. Harriet. Rosie.
    Aaron. Daniel. Ashton. Logan. Harrison. Mark. Adam. Lachlan. Cameron. Darren.

    Alba for me. I so wanted to use it for DD2 as we have strong Scottish connections but I just don't like how it sounds when I say it. I was gutted I had to give it up.
