    Sage - I enjoy the idea of sage as a first name for a girl (though I heavily prefer it on a boy...but that's just me). It's naturey, but not OTT. A fun fact about Sage - it as well as Rosemary are almost considered a weed in the area of Oregon that I used to live. The plants would get huge and are very hardy. Not that this should dissuade you. Weed status does not make a nature name unusable IMHO.
    Talia - This name evokes images of mystery and wonder to me. Like.
    Maeve - YES!!!! It has the mystery of Talia, but feels more energetic.
    Caroline - Sweet and classic. Lovely.
    Isadora - A bit eccentric to the general public, but lovely and fun. A great twist on the uber popular Isabella/Isabelle.
    Lydia - This is a cute name. Feels peppy and almost whimsical without falling into the "bizarre". Also, this is fairly recognizable which can be a plus.
    Cora - I get the image of a girl with long strawberry blonde curls walking through a wooded area that is overgrown with wisteria. Lovely image and lovely name.
    Noelle - Not my favorite. It is also being used increasingly as a "filler" MN.
    Evelyn/Evelina - I prefer Evelyn, but Evelina is interesting.
    Genevieve/Guinevere -LOVE!!!!! Prefer Guinevere, but they both make me think of a huntress.
    Aurora - I go back and forth on Aurora. Today I like it, but some days it almost feels saccharinely sweet.
    Autumn - One of the more common nature names, but still lovely.
    Amber - I feel like this name is "over". It feels dated and very 80's.
    Jane - Simple and sweet. Love it.
    Simone - I love that this name feels exotic, but not crazy. I love it, but it makes me think of a cat. Think of that as you will.
    Vivienne - I really don't see the appeal, but I know it is a budding favorite.
    Catherine - This is the most classic name I can think of (other than Mary) and I actually really like it. If you are into nicknames, this one has a plethora (including Cora btw).
    Ruby - Great gemstone name that has been able to break away from the "hippy-dippy" image and be used as a mainstream name. I love this one, but for me I still prefer Amethyst.

    First off, congrats! You're gonna be a mommy!

    Maeve - Such a fan of Maeve. Maeva is lovely too, but I prefer Maeve.
    Evelina - I love Evelina, meh about Evelyn. Evelina is a great way to honor an Evelyn in a modern way!
    Genevieve - Huge fan of the French pronunciation, though the English prn is lovely too. NN Evie is my favourite.
    Catherine - Classic, beautiful, and full of NN options (Cat, Cate, Cathy, etc.)
    Vivienne - Pretty

    Evelyn - It's still old-lady-ish for me. But it's a classic.
    Jane - So lovely, but a little plain. Would make a lovely middle to honour family too! Evelina Jane is gorgeous.
    Isadora - I find this too harsh, but I love the Isa- part. Much prefer Isobel or Isaline.
    Cora - It's a breakfast restaurant here so that's all I can think of but it sounds nice.

    Guinevere - Not a fan of the sound at all. It's cool because it's medieval-y, but Genevieve is such a better option.
    Aurora - Always found the sound unappealing.
    Autumn - Meh. I find this tacky which is strange since I like Summer and Winter... I don't know
    Amber - Ember would be slightly better, I guess, but eek.
    Simone - Sorry, but I dislike Simone a lot.
    Lydia - Always always always bugs me that it rhymes with a certain STD.
    Caroline - Bad associations for me that I can't look past.
