    My fave Girls List

    What are your thoughts on my favorite names in the list, do you have any new suggestions that fit my style? Any middles that you think they should have? I love the idea of Juliet and Lily as middles

    My favorite girls names

    Eliana-my daughters Hebrew name which is the name we use for her, I don't mind total honesty if you don't like it.
    Bella- My daughter is Eliana Beatrice and I like the idea of nn Bella but figure most wouldn't get it, sometimes I call her Ella
    Kalani-This would have been my husbands name if he were a girl, think its pretty though not really what I usually go for
    Keturah-nn Kate
    Aria-I like this but I think its going to be trendy, Ella is trendy to though and probably my most favorite name
    Zahara-nn Zara I like this in spite of Zahara Jolie-Pitt, I also love the name Jolie or Joliet
    Noah William-Joseph Arthur-Ethan James

    Lovely names...the only one I'd nix is Joliet, as it's a town in IL w/a large number of prisons.

    Ella - super cute, usable, love it
    Eliana- not my style at all, to me it sounds like two names were put together in a creative way, however it is definitely usable
    Elysia - same as above
    Leilah - Lila or Le - ee - lah ?
    Reina - if pronounced like Raina then I prefer the Raina spelling
    Wren - very sweet
    Juliet - love it but I just adore the Juliette spelling
    Samara - not a big fan of Sam- names but it's a very usable name
    Bella- not as a full name but a very sweet nickname
    Kalani- sounds very hawaiian to me but nice name
    Elise/Elyse - LOVE Elise (especially as a middle name) but I hate random "Y"s in perfectly fine spelled names
    Talia - reminds me of the Youtuber
    Keturah-nn Kate - not my style at all
    Annelise - where I live it is considered an old lady name however it does sound very cute in english
    Hannah - very boring
    Aria- love the name in english, couldn't use it where I live as it resembles a word used in WW2
    Faye - cute
    Leah - I like the less popular spelling Lea better
    Leia - Star Wars
    Lily - cute but boring
    Zahara-nn Zara - Zara is lovely not a fan of Zahara though

    Eliana - your daughter's name is lovely! Ella works as a nn, and Bella for Eliana Beatrice is adorable! I think Eliana rules out Elysia, Elise, and Elyse unless you plan to use them as middles.
    Keturah - this is a beautiful name that fits really well in your sibset. I'm not crazy about nn Kate at all, quite frankly. I think it's clever to pull Kate from Keturah, I just personally find the name Kate too common to be interesting.
    Juliet - so romantic and feminine
    Faye - fresh and spunky
    Aria - it is becoming popular, but the name itself still has freshness and sparkle. I think it's a good match stylistically with Eliana.

    Not my faves:
    Lily - pretty, a bit common for my taste.
    Leah, Hannah - solid Biblical choices, just too common for my taste, and a little plain-Jane next to Eliana. Leah could actually work as another nn for Eliana if you wanted.
    Leia, Leilah, Reina, Kalani - I find these all rather insubstantial compared to the rest of your choices.
    Samara - I loooove the sound of this name, but ever since that movie The Ring came out, she's always associated with death and horror for me.
    Zahara nn Zara - I prefer Sarai
    Joliet - Juliet is a million times better
    Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
    Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar

    Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
    Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Kenshin, Remiel, Atreyu

    Talia - Okay as a nn for Natalia
    Keturah-nn Kate - Dislike
