I like Amelia, Harriet, Stella and Emma from your list.

Amora - OK
Ginerva-Ginny - not keen
Astrid - harsh, it's trendy but I really dislike it
Stella - like
Amelia - lovely
Luna - nice-sounding name but I'd avoid it as it may get lunatic jokes
Sundai - ice cream or day of the week
Gemzliah - never heard of this, people may find it hard to pronounce/spell
Harriet - lovely
Emma - lovely
Vivian - don't like

Sundai - icecream sundae
Gemzliah - difficult to pronounce/spell
Harriet - simple, easy

Amora - not keen - sounds like an ice cream
Ginerva-Ginny - don't like it (sorry)
Astrid - ok, sounds quite Scandinavian
Stella - nice
Amelia - nice
Luna - bit silly
Sundai - another ice cream name
Gemzliah - dreadful
Harriet - lovely
Emma - very nice
Vivian - lovely

Narcissa to me is associated strongly with the Harry Potter character, I've not heard it elsewhere (although I'm sure it has a history), so I would think carefully before you add another character from the series like Ginny or Luna, even Ginerva is like Minerva (McGonagall), lovely as it is.

PS Have you googled Amora? I would...

smileyinmummy2011 Fri 07-Jan-11 19:31:34

yeha i am going for harry potter theme! I love it and read it and really enjoyed it reading it to al of my kids and them reading it themselves as they got older. But it' not just the harry potter theme, i genrally love the name Narcissa, i think it sounds beautiful, i aslo think it actually suits my dd grin. And i like the way Ginny and Luna sound.
and yeah i googled Amora but i have a friend that is called Amora and it's actually pronounced "Am-a-rah" and Gemzliah is from a book i read on holiday, i think it sound lovely and just incase you were wondering is pro-nounced "Gems-lee-ah".

Amora is the name of a mustard brand in France. Sorry, I hate it.

Harriet is the best.

Really like Amelia as my friend has a little one called Amelia and we call her mimi for short.
Amelie is sweet too for an alternative also Amora is nice and I know a little girl called amara which is sweet too good luck
A little tip always try and shorten them and see how it sounds because no doubt what ever we name our children the kids at school will shorten their names.

Ginny Weasley is actually Ginevra, rather than Ginerva (Ginevra's what mean Auntie Muriel calls her at the wedding)... I like it a lot!

I also like Harriet and Amelia.

CupcakesHay Fri 07-Jan-11 21:42:16

Love Astrid.

Stella's the beer IMO!

What about Ariadnee (might want to check spelling!) or Aurelia?

Wish i was having a girl - so much prettier than boys names!

Maternelle Fri 07-Jan-11 21:42:17

Amora = Mustard
Astrid and Stella are nice

Sundai-sounds like some one from the black country describing what they are doing at the week.

On Sundai were goon round r babs for a kipper tie

Luna would go best with your other DC's names, I think.

Where does Gemzliah come from?

i think luna/ginevra might be a bit too much Harry Potter on top of Narcissa wink
