Love Ophelia and Madeleine (but only the French version, not the German Madeline).

Ariadne is lovely and also Evelina

I went to school with an Indian girl called Jaya which I thought was the most beautiful thing I'd ever heard.

I once worked with an Italian girl called Lorella. I was enamored by her!

Bessie - well yes, she was Hades' wife, so queen of the shades - but she's also part of the spring story, when she returned from the underworld to the normal world, she brought spring and new shoots (her mother is the queen of the harvest, so they were both worshiped together for good crops).

But it's such a gorgeous name. (And I love the idea of a little girl with a nn Percy)

However, I have accepted it's not one of the names I like that DH just feels a bit "meh" about and I could work on him over (I'm having limited success with another couple of names), but he hates it - and it's not fair to insist on a name he really hates (rather than just isn't excited about).

<sigh> If I ever leave him and have a DD with someone else, then she'll be called Persephone. wink

(Of course, it's going to be a boy now after this!)

Yy to Emmeline, love it. Also love Serendipity and Genevieve.

Oh and Jennifer, which just happens to be my beautiful DD's name

EwanHoozami Sat 12-Jan-13 09:51:58

Sorrel too.

I only find girls' names beautiful when you hear the full name - eg Eugenia Victoria Butler. Sometimes fairly plain names are glorious in combination.

I love (but DH vetoed) both Ariadne and Persephone!

I think Jyothika is lovely, but not useable for us either.

Never going to get to use it though sad

RillaBlythe Sat 12-Jan-13 10:22:51


Have two DDs & didn't use it though!

MadameJosephine Sat 12-Jan-13 10:24:32

Just come across the name Emerence which I think is lovely and apparently means worthy of merit

sooperdooper Sat 12-Jan-13 10:28:52

I love Saoirse (irsh, sear-sha), and Zaria, and I do love Ophelia which is mentioned a few times alreay but I'd never use it, sad connortations sad

Polkadotfanatic Sat 12-Jan-13 12:00:49

Elowen, means elm tree in Cornish. I really want an Elowen Alice....

Or Poesy (pr. Posy) smile

Also love Ophelia, but like one poster said, in an English accent is not great...'I feel ya' hmm.

Dreadfully popular I know, but Florence is also gorgeous...

On of my fave girls names is Ebony smile
