Like Beatrice best - a lovely name.

IF, IF, IF it matters, Lorelei is usually spelled with an e towards the end, not an a: www.behindthename.com/name/lorelei
And, also IF it matters, the famous rock/water spirit is traditionally spelled 'Loreley' in German. This explains the spelling:

They're all nice, but I prefer Lorelei spelled this way.

Eleanor is my favourite from your list. Gorgeous name x

Lorelei.
Beatrice is lovely, but very popular atm. The others are a little dull.

Another vote for Eleanor not so keen on the others...

Lorelei, Eleanor, Beatrice all excellent. Good shortlist, OP!
Like the nn options for Eleanor - Nell and Beatrice - Bea as well.
Not so keen on Abigail, and know a lot of Abigails aged teens to mid-twenties, if that's of interest.

Abigail or Eleanor.

I like Beatrix though.

The other 'Rocks'

My favourites are Abigail and Eleanor.

Eleanor is lovely, if kept as Eleanor and definitely not shortened to Ellie. And there are a lot of Ellie's.

All lovely names, although Eleanor and Abigail quite popular. I've always liked lorelei but was put off choosing it because lorelei was a siren who lured men to their deaths on the rocks. All good choices though.
