I did read somewhere that they think the generally accepted meaning for Persephone may be incorrect,something to do with the Ancient Greek language phonic system? Something like that.

Oh wow, several votes here for my dd's name!

For me, the most beautiful girl's name has to be


which is why I called my daughter that.

Alisvolatpropiis I have just looked up Persephone in my Greek etymological reference.

It says that there is some dispute between scholars about the provenance, as it seems earlier forms of the name have been found (Persefassa), suggesting a pre-Hellenic origin. It evolved into "Persephone", as this fitted better in the Greek language, and people gave it a Greek meaning, assuming a Greek origin, whereas in fact the meaning in its original language may have been quite different.

I love Cecily and Amelia and Annabel. I only have one daughter though, so have only used one of my names.

Eloise - probably because I love The Damned's version of the song from the 1980's.

alexpolis that's it! I knew I'd read something about it but couldn't remember what had actually been said for the life of me smile

I met a beautiful girl called Christiana the other day - nice classic name with a twist

I love this name, very classic and romantic

I think Ophelia is beautiful too. I love the name Tabitha.

I'm really rather fond of Catherine. It has so many potential shortenings.

I also like saying Clarlinda. But I have to confess I got that from a headstone.

Octavia - very different to what I usually like and I'd never actually use it.

Eleonora, but it would just get shortened to Eli

Lorian is beautiful.
it means moon maiden.

i also love Jessica

and i think Elizabeth is lovely, too
and Charlotte.

all these are not names i'd use for my own DDs, for various reasons (Charlotte is my sister's name)

I love it, especially when said with a welsh ccent.
But, on the down side, it does look like my fanny when written down.
I also love Anastasia.

Mosman Sat 12-Jan-13 15:32:00

I love Annaleise and Francesca DH said no
I think my next imaginary child would be a Gabriella

SilveryMoon Sat 12-Jan-13 15:34:46

Sabih Katienne is beautiful! I can't stop saying it. feels lovely.

My favourite girls names are
Evangeline (like I said in my last post)

But, if we were ever to have a girl, it'd be Bethany or Rachel to match ds's biblical names. I suppose I could use Evangeline though. Would love to, although my fav girls name ever is Gretchen, but you asked for beautiful and Gretchen is not a beautiful name

Eppie is my favourite.

I know an Anissa. Very pretty, and suits her parents' need for it to work in six different languages.

I like Briony , Jemima and Tansy - pretty names...
