    Names that do NOT end in -a!

    I've got;

    Penelope
    Gwendolen
    Emmeline
    Vivienne
    Genevieve
    Clementine
    Caroline
    Melusine
    Seraphine
    Imogen
    Beatrice

    Ultimately, I prefer the nice clean cut "ends in n" sound, but other than that...I've tried the search on NB, haven't gotten many favorable results that aren't horrid misspellings!

    (3 SYLLABLES, PLEASE!)

    Thanks berries!

    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

    There's so many! It's practically infinite, especially if you include e endings. Sorted by sound, trying not to repeat:
    N Sound:
    Coraline
    Rhiannon
    Carmen, Auden, Quinn (all unisex)
    Briallen
    Jane
    Katherine
    Corinne
    Josephine
    Manon

    Long E sound:
    Coralie
    Mercy
    Felicity

    S sound:
    Rose
    Carys
    Eloise
    Anais
    Thais
    Iris
    Isis
    Agnes
    Grace

    L sound:
    Mariel
    Nicole
    Adele
    Amabel
    Jill(lian?)

    T sound:
    Ayelet
    Juliet
    Nicolette
    Kate
    Margaret

    R sound:
    Harper
    Alair
    Briar
    Lenore/Leonore
    Claire
    Tamar
    Eleanor

    O sound:
    Clio
    Juno
    Echo
    Rocio
    Margo(t)
    Marlo

    Other:
    Boheme
    Hope
    Adelaide
    Sarai
    Paige
    Edith
    Meredith
    Miriam
    Eve
    Elizabeth

    This certainly isn't an exhaustive list- I could go on for days. I tried to include mostly classic names because that seems more your style, but you could go on forever with just the "non-a ending" criteria.
