Talia is the only one I've heard of and is a nice name. Can also be spelled Thalia I think.

Not sure how to pronounce Gaia. Lynelle sounds like a contraceptive pill...prefer Melissa to Melina personally but please not ranny!! Sounds very granny but missing a letter and I can envisage much playground teasing...

Jocelyn and Talia are lovely.

Gaia nice but might get some bullying in school.

The others sound made up to me!

Jocelyn definitely the best.

Melina is the same as 'malaena' which is a medical term for blood in the poo so I'd avoid that one!smile

Talia and Gaia are nice though.

Absolutely no offence but most of these sound like middle aged country singers or something to me?

Thalia I have heard of n is lovely, tho.

Melina makes me think of GI bleeding...

Thalia is the only one I vaguely like. Ranny is awful, Melina sounds like blood in your poo, linelle sounds like a sanitary towel.

if you hadnt have said would have thought lynelle would be like ly-nell

Talia - is nice but having known french/spanish girls with that name usually pronounce Ta lea or Thalia - so tha leea

I like Gaia - and great meaning as the mother of the world..or Earth

So would pick Talia/Gaia

Ranny, spelt this way, wouldn't be pronounced Ray-nee.

Jocelyn by a mile. Followed by Gaia.

BreeVDKamp Thu 16-Jul-15 17:05:11

Jocelyn but known as Joss. Love Joss!

LemonYellowSun Thu 16-Jul-15 17:07:56

Most of them sound like a contraceptive pill!!

Jocelyn is really nice. Joss is nice.

NerrSnerr Thu 16-Jul-15 17:11:20

I quite like Jocelyn, not keen on the others.

00100001 Thu 16-Jul-15 17:11:58

reluctant who said it was pronounced ray-nee?

I like Jocelyn

knickernicker Thu 16-Jul-15 17:14:12

Only Jocelyn

sweetpeame Thu 16-Jul-15 17:14:38

The only one I've ever heard of is Jocelyn. I don't especially like it but it's the best of the bunch. TBH most of the other names sound quite ugly and/or made up.

ashesandfire Thu 16-Jul-15 17:16:27

Jocelyn is the only one I like. Talia is OK but I prefer it as a nn for Natalia and pronounced Ta-lia rather than Tar-lia

flanjabelle Thu 16-Jul-15 17:37:57

I'm sorry but ranny would sound like tranny to me. the double n would make it be pronounced in that way. definite no.

I love thalia, but you need the h in it or it looks silly.
