    Help, My List is Out Of Control!

    I'm looking at thinning out my list a little bit so it's a bit more manageable, and I'm hoping this will help. While my list may seem different stylistically, I do still have the same kind of framework behind what I'm looking for.

    I like names that are sweet and friendly sounding; ones that feel approachable, bubbly and cheery. After going back and forth between girlier choices and unisex names, S/O and I have kind of decided that the girlier choices fit what we both like best. S/O is less keen on frilly names, but isn't overly fussy about the list, as long as the names aren't wishy-washy in terms of gender (ie; if you're reading a class list, you can get a bit of an idea in your mind as to whether they'd be a boy or girl), and I'm not overly fussy as long as it's not too common where I live, because I'm going to school to work in education.

    Here's my list (apologies it's so long, I'm not expecting anyone to go through the entire thing bit by bit, just standouts and such);

    Bluebell, Zara, Ruby, Orla, Martha, Rosie, Emma, Olivia, Isabelle, Phoebe, Chloe, Bobbie, Lola, Dolcie, Maisie, Tilly, Marcie, Beatrice, Ffion, Poppy, Tallulah, Esmae (prefer this spelling as I've seen some pronounce Esmee as "ez-mee" and I don't like Esme), Mollie, Alice, Elsie, Honey, Delilah, Daisy/Daisie, Arabella, Nellie, Kitty, Darcey/Darcie, Billie, Zoe, Louisa, Effie, Evie, Ella, Isla, Millie/Milly, Harriet, Dollie/Dolly, Minnie, Hollie, Annabelle, Mia, Bethany, Florence, Violet, Abigail, Clara, Faye, Eva, Betsy, Amelie, Amelia, Pixie, Ava, Lily/Lillie, Scarlett, Sophie, Leah, Matilda, Lexi, Aoife, Lucy/Lucie, Aurelia, Georgia, Gemma, Layla, Francesca, Imogen, Ellie, Hannah.


    I know they're not to everyone's tastes, but I'm hoping for a bit of help swaying me one way or the other on a few of these.

    Thanks!

    I can see you with a child named this:
    Rosie, Phoebe, Delilah, Lola, Maisie, Marcie, Mollie, Daisy/Daisie, Kitty, Darcey/Darcie, Esmae, Zoe, Evie, Millie/Milly, Dollie/Dolly, Minnie, Hollie, Effie, Annabelle, Bethany, Georgia, Gemma, Pixie, Lilly/Lillie.

    Daisie, Esmae and Lola. Phoebe, Delilah and Annabelle.

    Gorgeous, but definitely more common that you'd like:
    Ruby, Emma, Olivia, Isabelle, Delilah, Ella, Isla, Mia, Violet, Abigail, Clara, Amelia, Ava, Lily/Lillie, Scarlett, Sophie, Leah, Ellie

    Lovely, but I don't love them for you:
    Zara, Orla, Martha, Chloe, Beatrice, Esmae, Louisa, Harriet, Florence, Violet, Abigail, Faye, Eva, Betsy, Amelie, Imogen, Francesca, Leah, Matilda, Lexi, Aurelia, Layla, Hannah

    Darling, but for the middle:
    Bluebell, Ffion, Tallulah, Honey

    I am bored of/really dislike this name, sorry:
    Emma, Olivia, Isabelle, Bobbie, Dolcie, Nellie, Billie, Scarlett, Lexi

    There are some names from your list that I know I've missed, just assume I like them but that they didn't really stand out :P I'll probably write you another post giving proper long opinions on them too, but have this for now.
    Hufflepuff. PhD Student. Cat Lover.
    Alice Marigold | Luke Avery | Eliza Claire | George Sebastian
    Liora. Ya'ir. Yehudit. Lavan.

    Dearest, Darling
    Eira Solstice * Posy Elizabeth * Cleo Adelaide * Sylvia Mairead * Noa Felicity
    Ivy Siofra * Freya Juliet * Mira Frances * Rhea Natalie*

    I like to categorize names to help with pairing or down sizing... hope this helps.

    Whimsical/boho:
    Ffion,Poppy,Tallulah,Esmae,Elsie,Honey,Delilah,Daisy, Aoife, Pheobe, Blueberry, Florence, Violet, Aurelia,Gemma,Layla

    Vintage/classics:
    Emma,Olivia,Isabelle, Scarlett,Sophie,Leah,Matilda,Lexi,Lucy, Ruby, Martha, Abigail, Chloe, Harriet, Orla, Dolcie, Alice, Arabella, Zara, Beatrice, Annabelle, Louisa, Bethany, Georgia, Imogen, Francesca, Hannah

    Short/Sweet:
    Rosie, Mollie, Millie, Holly, Dolly, Minnie, Nellie, Kitty, Maisie, Marcie, Tilly, Darcie, Lola, Zoe,Effie,Evie,Ella,Isla,Mia,Clara,Faye,Eva,Betsy,Amelie,Amelia,Pixie,Ava,Lily, Ellie

    I think the only two names I'm hesitant on are Bobbie and Billie (dont get me wrong, I love the names... however, they dont seem to fit your criteria).
    ~Joan/Joanie, Winifred/Winry, Heidi~
    Evangeline | Felicity | Mae | Alice | Dorothy | Ingrid | Margaery | Elizabeth | Bernadette

    ~Conrad, Rex, Isaac/Ike~
