Thanks ladies. It's funny that the comments have helped me figure out the names I like best, really helpful. Agree with sparkle and bedtime on spellings. Good advice.

Fionnuala (Finn) and Theadora (Thea) are my favourites from your list. I do like Ottilie too, but Lottie doesn't make sense to me.

Agree with badtime. Like Thea, too.

love Ottilie and Theodora.

I would use Isadora rather than Izora, and Fionnuala rather than Finnula, which just looks illiterate.

I like Ottalie (but would shorted to Tally or Tilly, woudl assume a Lottie was Charlotte) and Thea, but not keen on Theodora.

Finnula and Ottilie (not with an a) would be nice, as would Thea, otherwise no, they don't do it for me.

I like Ottalie and Theadora best from that list. Haven't heard Izora before..

Penelope- penny
Harriet- Hattie
Josephine- effie
Edith- edie
Rosalie- rosie

We had Alethea/Thea on our short list.

Also like Ottilie but wouldn't shorten it.

Whoops, Aula should have been Alula.

DH and I quite like names that can be shortened to a family nickname. What do you think of these:
Izora (Izzy)
Finnula (Finn or Lula)
Aula (Lula)
Ottalie (Lottie)
Theodora (Thea)
