I never used to like that name, but now I love it, I think it's so strong and beautiful

Fifi I thought you were proposing 'sonlypuppyfat' as a sarcastic contribution to the thread :-p so cynical, me

I also love Esmerelda!
Quite like Mafalda

When I was a kid lots of characters in my stories were Sonatinas. Can't see anyone naming their baby that though.

For properly long and frilly I think it's got to be 4 syllables or more.

Cassiopeia - 5 syllables! Cassie as a NN.

Any of the names ending in -bella: Christabella, Rosabella, Annabella etc.

Antonia.

We have quite a long name for our DD1. She hates it being shortened so we have had to work at correcting people on her behalf. It's a proper name not one that calls out for shortening.
