    I like:
    Felicity- I like the spunkyness and pretty sound of Felicity.
    Violet- I like -et/ette names, and flower names, so I like Violet.
    Sophie- I like her soft, pretty, and sophisticated sound.
    Ivy- I don't know why, I just love it!
    Hazel- Ditto Ivy!
    I have no opinion towards:
    Maeve- I like Eve and Evie, but not Mae (I do like May, though).
    Daisy- Just a bit boring.
    Elsa- She's just kind of bland, but I like Elle, Ellie, and Ella.
    Mabel- Sounds alot like maple, which I dislike, but has the nn possibility for Belle, which I like.
    Poppy- I like it but it sounds like a nn.
    Florence- I like Flora, but this reminds me of the town.
    I dislike:
    Jemima- Reminds me too much of the syrup company.
    Adelaide- The -laide ending is too harsh.
    Ingrid- It is just too harsh overall.
    Lily - Eliza - Isabelle - Rose - Margaret - Coraline - Emilia - Hazel
    Oliver - Simon - Jasper - Theodore - Henry - Leopold - Ezra - Jack

    Jemima
    Adelaide - I have grown to like Adelaide a lot. It's such a charming, rich, girly, pretty choice, but I prefer Adele personally. I would love to meet an Adelaide, though!
    Felicity - love. I'm considering it as a MN right now. I prefer it as a MN in general, but it is nice.
    Violet - adore! Violet is in my top five. I love it so much. It seems utterly perfect to me.
    Sophie - love this, too. Due to its popularity, and its sort of insubstantial feel to me, I would probably use it as a MN, but I do like it a lot.
    Maeve - I've never been able to get behind this, sorry! I do like just Mae, but Maeve has always felt harsh to me.
    Daisy - Daisy feels too cutesy for me, but it is cute! I think Adelaide or Margaret, nn Daisy, would be lovely, though!
    Ivy - love! It never quite makes it to my short list but I would love to meet a little girl with the name and I think it's just so charming.
    Elsa - like, but don't love. There are a lot of other Elizabeth forms I like better--like Isabelle, Lillian, Eliska, Lisette, and Elizabeth itself.
    Mabel - most people seem to love it, but it still feels really, really old-fashioned to me.
    Hazel - love! I wish I could find a spot on my list for it, but I can't really seem to make it work. I love to see others use it!
    Ingrid - it seems like a lot of Berries love it, but I've never really seen the appeal. It's a nice name but I like Astrid a lot more!
    Poppy - love! It seems like it's too cutesy for a lot of people but I adore it and I think it's perfect. I think Penelope and Josephine are lovely full names for it, and I love it as a MN, too...
    Florence - I don't love it, but I adore Fleur and Flora!

    Violet, Sophie, Felicity, Ivy, and Hazel are my favorites!

    Good luck!
