    Paloma - cool, but one time a commenter here on the boards mentioned it reminded them of a tumor... since -oma is a suffix added to names of cancers (carcinoma, etc.). Yikes. I can't shake that imagery now.
    Keturah - really cool! What does it mean?
    Magdalen - I like that it's a unique full name for a Maggie, but I tend not to like full names that aren't very wearable on their own. Magdalen is kind of a mouthful.
    Ola - Spanish-speaking person saying "hello." Not a fan.
    Camille - classic and seems underused today, without checking its top 1000 status.
    Harper - an "original" name that isn't at all anymore. Way, way too trendy.
    Stella - a classic making a pretty strong comeback. Seems like lots of celebs have chosen it. Too commonly used today for my taste, but it is a nice name.
    Ocean - agree with pp that if you're gonna go there you need to make it feminine, a la Oceane. I'd prefer to see it as a mn.
    Verity - It makes me think of Jesus. "Verily I say unto you..." Doesn't seem like a name to me.
    Snow - cool as a mn. I don't really like it as a first. Unless there were a cool story behind it... like it was a freak snowstorm on the day of her birth, or mom and dad met on the ski slopes or something.
    Lux - Getting trendy. I'm okay with it as a mn.
    Calla - I think someone saw that blog post the other day with several of these names, huh? This is a great one from that list. Very unique without being too out-there. Great choice. Hope it stays uncommon!
    Verbena - Could see it as a mn. Don't like the sound of it for a first.

    Paloma- I love the meaning and very pretty.
    Keturah- sounds a little made-up to me.
    Magdalen- nice but I prefer Magdelena.
    Ola- makes me think of hola.
    Camille- personally I find it borders on pretentious.
    Harper- I like this a lot- it's really spunky and fun and not frilly.
    Stella- dreamy and sweet and makes me think of constellations.
    Ocean- not a huge fan.
    Verity- I like Vera better.
    Snow- very cool and I love how I imagine snowflakes when I hear it.
    Lux- sounds too much like an attempt to sound upscale.
    Calla- sounds very elegant and similar to Ella but more grown up.
    Verbena- I like Verena better. I feel like the b is a little out-of-place.

    Overall, this is a beautiful list! Some real gems on here.

    Paloma - stunning. This has caught my eye recently. I think it's unusual, but so classy and beautiful.

    Keturah - again, very classy and beautiful, strong roots and unique sound.

    Magdalen - beautiful. Maybe a TAD obviously biblical for me, but I do enjoy it. I think I prefer Magdelena.

    Ola - I can't get on board with this. I live in a heavily Hispanic area and it sounds exactly like Hola.

    Camille - beautiful.

    Harper - dislike. This feels masculine and uber trendy for me.

    Stella - sweet, spunky, vintage.

    Ocean - I like this, but I think I prefer Oceane.

    Verity - one of my all time favorites. It's got sass, but still feels very sophisticated.

    Snow - I don't think I love this up front - I feel like it may suit the middle slot better.

    Lux - Same as Snow, but I do see the appeal of this up front. I remember seeing Luxilie before, I don't know if thats something you would like or not.

    Calla - I like this. It feels grounded and approachable, but still sweet and unusual.

    Verbena - I quite like this. It's very different, but has a sweet, earthy feel.

    Paloma Camille - perfet
    Verbena Lux - love

    I love the names:


    I'm not crazy about any of the combos, sorry.

    Paloma, Camille and Calla are absolutely gorgeous.
    Ocean is pretty, but maybe Oceane or Oceana? (Oceane, with an accent over the first e, is pronounced Oh-say-on).
    Lux, Snow and Verity are cool.

    Stella is overdone imo, as well as Harper.

    I dislike Keturah, Magdalen (WAY too clunky for my taste), Ola, and Verbena.
