    100% honesty, no offense intended.

    1. Jane- Beautiful as a first, tired and a bit overdone in the middle unless it has some sort of personal meaning or is honoring someone
    2. Alexandria- I prefer Alexandra, but it's pretty
    3. Victoria- This feels less regal and a bit more tacky to me. All the Victorias I've known have been somewhat crass
    4. Shylah- Has a pretty sound, but lacks substance
    5. Morganne- If you're pronouncing it Morgan, no. If you're pronouncing it Mor-GANNE, sure. Not my style, but I guess it's fine.
    6. Delilah- A pretty sound, but comes with the stigma of biblical Delilah
    8. Clara- Lovely
    9.Opal- I dunno about this. Logically it should fit in with Ruby, but it reminds me more of Oprah than of Opals
    10. Virginia- Classic, not my favorite, but a nice name. I like Ginny as a nn.
    12. Rylei- Tacky and badly spelled.
    13. Sarah- Plain, simple...almost too plain and simple. Needs a stunning middle for me.
    14. Carrie- All I think of is Stephen King
    15. Lucy- It's a nameberry favorite, but I hate the pronunciation. I just think of Loosey-goosey
    16. Alice- Lovely, whimsical. Reminds me of Wonderland.
    17. Catherine- Gorgeous, and my preferred spelling.
    19. Rebecca- Pretty enough, feels a bit old.
    20. Maeve- NMS but i like it well enough
    21. Chanel- Feels tacky to me
    22. Sofia- Soft and pretty and the name of half the other girls in her class
    23. Ellie- Too nicknamey, needs a full first like Eleanor.
    24. Cora - I like it, but it also reminds me of the evil mom on the Once Upon a Time show
    25. Petal - A little too hippie for me
    26. Beatrice - This is growing on me, and Bea is adorable nn
    27. Ariana - I don't see the appeal
    28. Savannah - I don't see the appeal, but Savvy is a cute nn
    29. Arielle - Feels too princessy
    30. Maggie - Nice, needs a full first like Margaret or Magnolia
    31. Eloise - Lovely and lively
    32. Lily - Pretty, but starting to feel tired and overdone
    33. Poppy - Nicknamey, needs a full first. Also I think every girl named Poppy is doomed to have her name typo'd into "Poopy" and suffer extreme embarrassment
    34. Cleo - Madame Cleo
    35. Ottilie - Pretty but I never know how to pronounce this....Oh-tee-lee? Ott-ah-lee?
    36. Violet - Lovely
    37. Lara - feels a bit dated
    38. Faye - I don't hate it. I know a girl whose middle name is Fae (as in, inspired by faries) and I prefer that spelling
    39. Amelia - Lovely
    40. Stella - All I think of is "STEEEEELLLLLAAAAAAAHHH". No idea what the appeal is here.
    41. Olympia - Don't see the appeal.
    42. Beth - To quote one of my favorite fictional characters, "I hate the name Beth. It's so.....Beth"
    43. Dawn- This is one of those that should be gorgeous but just falls flat for me. A nice enough name.
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    1. Jane- I like it but don't love it. It's a solid choice and underused.
    2. Alexandria- uh, I'm not a fan of Alexandra versions, to me they are too close to the very masculine Alexander.
    3. Victoria - is very pretty. I like it a lot.
    4. Shylah- I don't know why but I'm not a fan of "y"s in the middle of names, they look to much like these ultra modern / popular names Kylie, Bryleigh, etc.

    6. Delilah- a very pretty choice
    8. Clara - I simply adore this name, especially if pronounced Clah-ra not Clair-a.

    10. Virginia- reminds me to much of the state
    12. Rylei- see Shylah

    15. Lucy - very sweet
    16. Alice - beautiful
    17. Catherine- it's a bit too serious for me
    19. Rebecca- somehow I really don't like this name
    20. Maeve- ok
    21. Chanel- is a brand to me not a name
    22. Sofia - I like that you spelled it with an "f"
    23. Ellie - more a nn than a name
    24. Cora - not my style
    25. Petal - not my style
    26. Beatrice - reminds me of an elderly women
    27. Ariana - ok
    28. Savannah - not my style
    29. Arielle - it sounds nice, and even though I associate it with the little mermaid, I like it
    30. Maggie - more of a nn
    31. Eloise - is a very pretty name
    32. Lily - overused but it's cute
    33. Poppy - cute

    39. Amelia - love it, it's a shame that it is so popular
    40. Stella - ok
    41. Olympia - reminds me of the Olympic games
    42. Beth - is a bit too old-ladyish for me to like it
    43. Dawn - ok

    Thanks for the opinions & thoughts, berries. I really like the combo Ellie Beatrice. Sounds classy & sophisticated to me. I also like Catherine Jane, and Lara Catherine Faye. Chanel is a guilty pleasure name, I'm sure I'd never use it. The same with Clementine. I like Delilah Jane, and the fact that it is a biblical name isn't bad for me because I'm religious. Madeline is also a love of mine, it sounds gorgeous paired with a lot of my favorite names... Delilah Madeline, Beatrice Madeline, Sofia Madeline, Lara Madeline, Cora Madeline, etc.

    Honest opinions:

    1. Jane- LOVE IT! It's simple, elegant, and classic.
    2. Alexandria- It is very regal, but I prefer Alexandra. I think the -ia ending adds unnecessary frill.
    3. Victoria- Pretty name. I just have some bad associations with it. :P
    4. Shylah-'s sounds nice, but something about the spelling takes away from it. Does that make sense? Maybe not. I'm not really feeling it though.
    5. Morganne- I prefer the Morgan spelling. What do you think of Morgana?
    6. Delilah- Such a sweet name.
    7. Clara- Great choice.
    8. Opal- I don't think I'd be bold enough to use it, but it's a really great name. Reminds me of Because of Winn Dixie (India Opal) and it's my birthstone!
    9. Virginia- It has some southern charm. Just don't use Ginny as a nickname!
    10. Rylei- Is it pronounced like Riley? If so, I find Riley a little too trendy. The spelling isn't doing much for me either.
    11. Sarah- Love it. I'm a fan of the classics.
    12. Carrie- I don't really care for nicknames as first names...just me though. Carrie isn't really my style either.
    13. Lucy- Adorable.
    14. Alice- LOVE IT!
    15. Catherine- One of my favorites, especially in its full form.
    16. Rebecca- Great name.
    17. Maeve- So sweet and absolutely adorable.
    18. Chanel- Not really my style. What about Coco?
    19. Sofia- Love this name. I honestly prefer the Sophia spelling, but so do a lot of people. But I like Sofia a lot too. Reminds me of Sofia Coppola.
    20. Ellie- Again, the nickname thing. But there are so many routes to Ellie- Eleanor, Elizabeth...
    21. Cora- Downton Abbey! Gosh, I'm obsessed. Love the name. Love it. Love it.
    22. Petal- Not really my style. It sounds like a good cat name though.
    23. Beatrice- Great name. Love Bea as a nickname.
    24. Ariana- Not sure I would use it myself, but it's very pretty.
    25. Savannah- Super southern. Like it a lot.
    26. Arielle- Not my style. It's a way to get to Ellie, though. I like Ellie, by the way.
    27. Maggie- Nickname. A great nickname though. What about Margaret, Margo, Marguerite?
    28. Eloise- Adorable. I imagine an Eloise as a real bad-a**.
    29. Lily- Such an awesome name, but it's very popular.
    30. Poppy- So cute.
    31. Cleo- I like it. I wouldn't necessarily use it as a first name, but it stands pretty well on its own.
    32. Ottilie- I really like this name. Not sure on the pronunciation though. (Ott-i-lee, maybe?)
    33. Violet- LOVE IT! So awesome.
    34. Lara- I like Laura a lot better. And Lorelei. Lara just seems a little, well, I don't know, but it's not really my favorite.
    35. Faye- I feel like the "e" is unnecessary. I like Fay a lot better. It sounds like a breath of wind. Or something like that.
    36. Amelia- Great.
    37. Stella- Super pretty.
    38. Olympia- I have an affinity for this name. Definitely not gutsy enough to actually use it though.
    39. Beth- My weird nickname thing. But it's a great nickname for Elizabeth. Reminds me of sweet Beth March.
    40. Dawn- Please no! Sounds so middle aged. Reminds me of a dental hygienist. For whatever weird reason.

    Jane, Clara, Sarah, Lucy, Alice, Catherine, Rebecca, Maeve, Sofia, Cora, Eloise, Lily, Poppy, Violet, and Amelia
    Edward, Fitzwilliam, George, Louis, Peter
