    This is so useful- thanks posters.
    Surprised and pleased to see so much love for Minerva. I know it isn't everyone's bag but to see such a good range of positive response too is great.
    My main reservation is that she is 'bound to hate it', since it's so unusual.
    I feel like it can go either way with an unusual name; either it could make a person proud, feel kind of special...or it could make them cringe. With a name like Minerva, I'm not sure which way it would go.
    I was hoping that she more approachable nickname Minna/Minnie makes it fun for a girl to have, when younger as well as when older (I do feel its a name she would appreciate more as an older girl!)
    Do you feel like Minerva is wearable/could feel beautiful, even on a more shy or self-conscious girl?

    Partly in lieu of these replies, I think Nola has moved down the list. It feels a little less special to me than the other three (however I do love Finola, thanks for that suggestion!)
    It seems like we sway closer to Theodora and Minerva, but I can't quite let go of Sabine.

    I just can't work through these three to a favourite!
    Any kind of opinions on what these names remind you guys of- what kind of 'vibe' they give off, would be amazing.

    Thank you all!

    Hm. I don't think Sabine fits as well with your boys as the other three. I quite like Theodora, and I'm very fond of names with vast nickname potential. Minerva I like, but I have a hard time imagining how that plays out on the playground. If you live in a more culturally hip, urban area, fine. If not, probably be ready for a nickname like Minnie. And Nola I love. Sweet and simple and I think it fits best of all with your other children's names.
