    Would like some opinions on new fascinations!

    Please visit my boys thread also --> link

    I am in the process of starting from scratch with my name lists, and it is soooo hard..... I'm not expecting, just always collecting, and I've just started looking through name books (can't do it digitally, if I do I only see the names that were on the list from before and it super unhelpful!).

    These are some of the names that have caught my eye, I would love to hear some thoughts about them, or at the very least a keep/toss rating.
    I love unusual names, so if the only reason to not keep a name is that it's rare, that's not going to be enough.
    I would love it if anyone would like to dream up some imagery for any of them, tell me what it makes them think of.
    Suggestions are very welcome also! ^^

    Adela
    Alys
    Alix (prn. a-LEEKS)
    Aminta
    Cara
    Dido
    Dinah
    Edwina (Edie or Winnie)
    Eira
    Eleri
    Elspeth
    Hadassah
    Ishbel
    Helen
    Leda
    Loreto (more info --> link)
    Lys

    (That's as far as I got in the name book this first round...)

    Thanks in advance ^^

    I would keep:

    Cara
    Edwina
    Eira
    Eleri
    Elspeth
    Hadassah
    Ishbel
    Helen
    Leda

    I would toss:

    Alys
    Alix
    Aminta
    Dinah: sounds dated to me.
    Loreto: I love the meaning behind but the name sounds very masculine to me.

    Neutral about:

    Dido & Adela.

    Good luck!

    I really like:
    Adela -- I love Adela! It has some kind of magical quality to it.
    Dinah -- I much prefer the Dina spelling, though.
    Eira -- Pretty and feminine. I also like Eir.

    I'm intrigued by:
    Edwina
    Leda

    My middle name is Leda, I love it I'd toss Alys and Alix....Alix would get called Alex or A licks all the time, and I just think Alice looks better. I like all your other names although they're not my style. I do love Adela though.

    Adela- I like it I just personally prefer Adele.
    Alys- It's ok.
    Alix- I don't like the pronounciation of it.
    Aminta- A little too far out there for my taste but it's interesting.
    Cara- I love Cara.
    Dido- I wouldn't use this for obvious future bad nicknames
    Dinah- I don't dislike this but I don't really like it either.
    Edwina- I don't like it.
    Eira- I like it. It's very interesting.
    Eleri- Sounds too close to celery so that's a no go for me.
    Elspeth- I don't like it.
    Hadassah- I don't like it.
    Ishbel- I don't like it.
    Helen- I'm neutral.
    Leda- I'm neutral.
    Loreto- I'm not a fan.
    Lys- It's different so I like it.
