Ama - Its ok I think Alma would be a better alternative
Amabel - I like it, and Ama would make a good NN for it
Arabel - I prefer either pronunciation, it seems incomplete though I think Arabella is better
Astrid - This seems very old lady and stuffy compared to your other names
Aviva* - OOH I love this one!
Channary* - NMS
Charmaine - it looks like Charmin to me....
Coral - Its ok, it gives me a nice mental picture though
Erika - Spell it correctly or don't use it! It is only hard on the child because they are constantly correcting people. There is nothing wrong with Erica!
Flair/Flare/Flara* (which one's the best?) - None of them, too much pressure involved!
Kelley - Again spell it properly! There is nothing wrong with Kelly!
Kimarie (combination of "Kim" and "Marie" - said kind of like Emery.) - It seems like a knock off version of Kimora which I find a lot prettier!
Laurel - LOVELY!!!!! Definitely my favorite of yours
Lisanne/Lizanne - DATED!!!!
Riane (ree anne) - reminds me a lot of Rihanna but not bad
Sky - It seems incomplete, what about Skyla or Skylar?
Vive/Viv'e (veev and vee-vay, respectively. I think I kinda made them up, lol.) - They both look like made up NNs for Vivienne to me.

Ama -- This is okay
Amabel -- It's nice but i don't like it much
Arabel -- I prefer the ARE-uh-bell pronunciation and this name is so pretty! Love it!
Astrid -- I love this name in theory for it's great mythology, but it might be hard to pull of IRL because of the ass sound in the beginning
Aviva-- This is interesting. Very pretty
Channary -- NMS sorry. It's doesn't sound very attractive
Charmaine -- this is pretty but I'm unsure if I like it. It almost sounds like Charlemagne but with the middle sound removed and then spelled weirdly.
Coral -- eh don't like it at all
Erika -- This is nice and old fashioned a bit. Pretty though and definitely wearable
Flair/Flare/Flara -- I don't know which is best and I don't like any of them sorry
Kelley -- weird spelling but nice name! Dated, true, but still feminine and pretty
Kimarie -- i would have said it Kim-Marie not Kim-ery which is what it sounded like you wanted. It's okay though
Laurel -- nms
Lisanne/Lizanne -- It's okay, I like it fine but I don't have many feelings about it
Riane -- I like it. I think I'd like Rhiannon a bit better
Sky -- Very pretty
Vive/Viv'e -- both of these seem like nicknames for Vivian/Vivienne to me. Like Vivi (viv-ee)Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^

Charmaine - No.
Coral* - I like Cora better.

Ama (AH-muh) - I don't really like it.
Amabel (AH-muh-belle) - Ditto as Ama
Arabel (Do you prefer the ARE-uh-belle or AIR-uh-belle pronunciation?) - I like it, but I like the prn Are-uh-belle.
Astrid - Nms at all.
Aviva* - I like this one!
Channary* - It's not bad, but it's a bit...outthere. I like Chandler more.
Charmaine - Awww, my mom's friends name. <3 It's nice, but I can only see it on a 40+ person. Lol
Coral* - I like it, nms, but I like it
Erika - Love Erika, but spelled Erica/Ericka.
Flair/Flare/Flara* (which one's the best?) - Flair. I keep thinking of the wrestler Rick Flair though...so it's kinda masculinized for me.
Kelley - I love Kelley, but spelled Kelly
Kimarie (combination of "Kim" and "Marie" - said kind of like Emery.) - I don't really like it. It's not bad, but it's not great.
Laurel - AH, my middle name. Lol. I like it, but it's kinda...old fashioned sounding, so I think of older people. Probably cause it's also my great aunt's name. It's not a bad name at all though. I know another little girl named Laurel, and she wears it so well.
Lisanne/Lizanne - I like Lisanne more, but not by much.
Riane (ree anne) - It's okay
Sky - I like Sky, but spelled Skye more.
Vive/Viv'e (veev and vee-vay, respectively. I think I kinda made them up, lol.) I like Vive, but not Viv'e. I do not like apostrophes in names AT ALL. Vive would be a great nn for Genevieve as well.Laurel - 2O - Aries - Slytherin - University of Toronto
