    missusaytch, I love your list!

    Sybilla- I know you how much you love this! It seems to be one of the constants on your list. I love it too- elegant, exotic and strong. I believe you once described it as a combination of West and East? great description
    Zara- same vibe as Sybilla. exciting, dramatic and exotic but pretty and royal
    Emerald- not a fan, too masculine-sounding for me
    Roxana- a bit dated
    Beatrice- beautiful, love this! classic, strong but feminine. great historical and literary connections
    Lucilla- love the nn Lux. spunky but vintage and pretty
    Vivien- like this because of Vivien Leigh
    Claire- sweet but a bit dull compared to some of your other names

    Gillian- nms, sounds a bit cold to me
    Laura- same as Claire
    Eva- sweet and cute but seems insubstantial on its own- Evelina nn Eva?
    Miranda- love this! it's not on my favourites list but pretty close
    Tabitha- always thought this was more suitable for a [tabby] cat than a human, sorry
    Lydia- pretty, sweet and easy to wear. but I don't like the Lydia Bennet connection
    Rachel- nice, but I know so many it underwhelms me
    Prudence- nice sound in theory, but a bit old-fashioned
    Diana- gorgeous! one of my favourite names, and I love the Diana, Princess of Wales connection

    Marianna- nice, but I like Mariana better with its European flair
    Aria- nice, more mdoern than the rest of your names
    Virginia- beautiful American Colonial style name, but I don't like Ginny
    January- cute, would be too hard to wear IMO
    Petal- same as January
    Cana- too insubstantial
    Eve- see Eva
    Monica- a bit dated, but nice
    Wilhelmina nn Mina- lovely, European and historical
    Marcella- same as Gillian
    Iris- same as Gillian
    Chrysanthe- just doesn't seem very name-y to me
    Sally- can't see this as a nickname, sorry

    My favourites (no particular order): Sybilla, Zara, Beatrice, Miranda, Diana, Virginia. And I love Anastasia, Elizabeth, Anneke, Helena and Ingrid- too bad you can't use them!
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Felicity, Juliet
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Oliver, Darcy, Orlando
