Questioning a Few Choices
In an attempt to be more Victorian in my naming tastes, there are some names I'm finding a bit questionable. I don't know if I like or dislike any of these yet, but I feel like maybe some feedback will help sway me.
*I love nicknames as first names, so being too cutesy doesn't phase me*

Marie - I think this is stuck as a dated and dull middle name for the moment. Maybe Mara? Mireille? Mairi?
Bessie - Lovely.
Jennie - Eh, I think Ginny is prettier.
Viola - lovely, I adore the Shakespeare connection, Twelfth Night is one of my favourites and Viola is a wonderful character
Dora - I know a little Dora (her sister is Edie) and she's made me really love it. The Dora the Explorer thing never bothered her.
Nettie - still a toilet to me. I'd use Henrietta more readily.
Lucille - Love this, very 1950s film star to me which I love.
Loretta - not my style but nice.
Essie - Isn't that a petrol company or something?
Nell - this is growing on me a lot recently. I still like Nigella and Fenella a lot as longer forms.
Delia - this is 100% Delia Smith to me but I do like it. Much prettier than Dahlia imo.
Vivian - Nice. I don't like Vivienne but Vivian is really quite cool... I also like the Cornish spelling Vyvyan but I think that's quite unusable.
Claribel/Claribelle - don't really like this, but adore Christabel. I know a Clara who's dad called her Clarabelle when she was little which is cute.
Charity - eh, there's nothing about this I like either. It's one of those very pressuring virtue names that I could never give to a human. Of course it's a wonderful trait but it's very intense as a name.★ close to my heart ★
Rufus - Alec - Emmett - Wes
Billie - Estella - Jemima - Eilidh

@oliviasarah - you're thinking of Esso Essie is a nail polish company, owned and created by a woman named Essie I can't really use Ginny, as it's my aunty's name (Virginia nn Ginny), and I didn't know about the toilet connections, I don't think we use that term here, haha. I do love Christabel, thank you
@bibliophile - I am thinking about dropping Charity and Nell, not sure on Loretta though (although Loretta Lynn may not be the best connection).
Since there weren't any replies to this yet, the more I looked at it, the more I ended up deciding;
I think I'm keeping Marie, Bessie, Viola, Dora, Nettie, Lucille, Essie, Delia and Vivian I may change Vivian to Vivien like Vivien Leigh (even though she was born Vivian).
Thank you both!"While some of the brightest of our celestial bodies are actually extinct now, their energy long since cooled; miraculously, because they float in the heavens so far away from us now, their beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever, and the glow will be so bright, it'll warm your heart, it'll make your eyes glisten, and it'll make you think to yourselves; what a concept"
