    Re: First daughter: Lots of ideas-- what do you think?

    Addison - I like Addison, but it's become very popular and I think will date badly.
    Adelaide - I'm not the biggest fan of Adelaide, but if you like the cute Addy nickname I think it's less trendy than Addison.
    Adele - not my style
    Alice - LOVE. I think Alice is so simple, classic and pretty!
    Annie - I like Annie as a nickname, but prefer Anne as the full name.
    Ava - Gorgeous, but again, very popular - not sure if that bothers you though
    Avigail (pronounced like abigail, but with a v) - I prefer Abigail
    Belle - LOVE. Another one of my favourites!
    Blythe - LOVE again! Yet another favourite! Soooo pretty.
    Caeli - For me, this comes off as being a bit yooneek in the spelling department, although it is pretty. Have you thought about Calla as an alternative?
    Caroline - Beautiful, and very classic!
    Celia - I like Celia a lot, but I like Cecile even more.
    Charlotte - Another beautiful, classic name, but also getting popular.
    Chloe - I like Chloe, but I don't love it.
    Clara - Lovely
    Colette - Not my style
    Cora - Not my style
    Daphne - I like Daphne, but I think any nicknames are not going to be very pretty.
    Dylan - My newest favourite, I just love it for a girl!
    Eden - I've always like Eden, but it can sound a little dated.
    Ella/Elle/Ellie - Pretty, but VERY popular in all its variations.
    Emma/Emme - Another meganame phenomenon, although I do love the Emme variation.
    Esther - I think this is so underused, and I love it.
    Eve - LOVE
    Flora - Very pretty
    Hannah - My godsons have tons of Hannahs in their classes, and I think it's already peaked.
    Imogen - I really like Imogen, but with the British pronunciation Im-mo-jin
    Julia - Another classic, although I prefer Juliet
    Kate - Lovely, but I prefer as a nn for Katharine
    Kaye - This one's a bit dated for me
    Loralei - Yet another of my absolute favourites! LOVE
    Lucy - And another. I LOVE Lucy!
    Lyda - I don't like this. How about Lyra?
    Lydia - I'm not a a Lydia fan, I'm sorry! But lots of other nameberryers are.
    Mae - I prefer the May spelling personally, but I love this as a first name
    Maya - Beautiful, but again popular
    Miri (nn for Miriam) - I love Miriam and Miri is a great nn.
    Naomi - This one's grown on me a lot recently
    Noa - LOVE
    Ruthie (nn for Ruth) - I like it as a nn for Ruth but not as a full name
    Stella - Beautiful
    Suri - Just too TomKat for me
    Susannah - It's lovely, but still associates too much with the song in my head!
    Teva (pronounced tee-vah) - I like Teva, but don't love it
    Veda (pronounced vay-dah) - not a fan, sorry
    Zoe - Again, I like but it's popular

    Whew - that's quite a list! I think you have some wonderful ideas there, and as I said, I think a lot of my Top 20 names came up there so we obviously have similar taste. You do have a lot of very popular choices there, and since you also have so many lovely (but less common) ideas, I would choose one of those. But popularity may not bother you.

    My favourites are: Alice, Belle, Blythe, Dylan, Eve, Loralei, Lucy, Noa.
