    So so so many. Too many to post here. It's not that I wouldn't use them, it's that my husband has very definite ideas about what does not a practical name make! Place names are a deal-breaker. Fantasy names are only considered if they have a "normal" sounding nickname. Word names (which I'm nuts over, especially nature names) are usually a no-no. What's a girl to do???

    Narnia is my absolute most favorite, cherished girl name EVER. I can just see a little Narnia Rose...but my husband will have none of it. It's not just a place name, it's a FANTASY place name. He just absolutely will not budge. So sad...

    Magnolia! I love lots of nature names, but, in reality, I'll probably choose more traditional names for my children. I have a "proper names" list and a "guilty pleasures" list, but my "guilty pleasure" list has morphed into my "middle names only" list! So, maybe my eldest daughter will be named Elizabeth Lark or something similar! Examples of some names from my list...

    Amaryllis
    Briar
    Calla
    Eira
    Gardenia
    Haven
    Holiday
    Lark
    Lavender
    Lilac
    Maple
    Marigold
    Opal
    Orchid
    Peridot
    Primrose
    Rain
    Snow
    Tulip
    Winter

    I love all these names, but would never choose them as first names. I'd consider my love of several popular names guilty pleasures because I'll never use them either. For example, I adore Charlotte and Sophie!
    Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Jane - Mabel - Susannah

    Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

    Clemence- I live in the U.S., so people would absolutely butcher this name. Although if I some how moved to France, I would use it.
    Aurelie- Love. Just too out there for me to use.
    Fiammetta- I love this name. Just too daring for a first name. I am thinking of the combo Rose Fiammetta
    Sienna- Trendy but I love how it sounds. Plus, I love Italy.
    Rosalia- I just love how this sounds.
    Raquel-21 year old who loves names, books, and languages

    Ladies: Catherine Isabella,Helena Margaret, Clara Josephine, Amelia Juliet, Louisa Genevieve, Eva Rosalind, Rose Fiammetta, Edith Lenore, Charlotte Rosamund, Eleanora Winter
    Gentlemen: Asher Frederick, Nicholas Hugo, Henry Oliver, William Grey, Matthew Isaiah, Thomas Alaric, George Everett

    I've been taking a huge liking to Z girl names or pheel, phil, phel, phine, or phey in the names.

    But I have a sore addiction to ancient, long, strong names like Philomena or Athena. Or mythological names like Persephone or Delphine.

    I've always been a sucker to names that are heavy on the vowels like Juno or Leo, or have hard consonants and end in a vowel, like Margo or Arlo.

    And then I've got a soft spot for old Welsh, Scottish, or Irish names.

    I like unusual names. Either short and spunky, or long and full of history.



    Also, Narnia Rose is just heart-wrenchingly darling, sleepysessha...

    @sleepysessha: Narnia is symbolic for Heaven. Rose can mean to have risen.

    If your husband is religious, you could say her name would mean that "heaven resurrects". Just a thought.

    Narnia Rose is gorgeous though.
