Thread: Cheerful Names?

I find myself drawn increasingly to girls' names that are in no particular order:
Some of these are more substantial sounding than others (Eleanor or Marjorie for example) while others are perkier sounding (Polly or Lolly for example).
I am wondering three things.
1) What names do you group in this category?
2) Are cheerful names a favorite of yours and why?
3) Or if not, what mood is created by the names you do like?
I feel I like these names because life is hard and if your name is pleasant (indeed I love the name Pleasant) then you at least have that comfort.

For me, a cheerful name would be Poppy, Sunday...Nell has been growing on me quite a lot lately.
I like cheerful names, but I think my favorite names give off a very calm & relaxed feel. I think of Celia, Rosie, Louisa, Jocelyn etc. in this category.
I like cheerful, and I also have a few favorites that are very lively & spunky (Philippa, Aurelia...really the nickname Rae), but I love calm & sweet above all.
Great question! This was really interesting.

The names I like make me happy. I look for beauty, timelessness, strength, dignity, and good meaning, and unequivocal pronunciation based on spelling. The one nearly objective quality of a name is its sound. I try to focus on the beauty of the sound rather than the vintage of its era. For example, Pauline & Amethyst sound beautiful to me but Edith & Agnes do not.
