If you like Dinah, how about Adina(h) ?
Like Louisa, timeless.

Love Miriam and Agnes. Both were on my list for DD, but I couldn't persuade DH.

Louisa - nice, possibly a bit 80s

Esther - love, mainly because of the courageous connotations

Miriam - nice

Aphra - never heard before! Not keen & neither is my autocorrect!

Caroline - love this, elegant, beautiful,

Jemima - still makes me think of that BBC Playschool song, "Come, Jemima, let's go shopping", but it's elegant and I like the connotations of beauty.

Dinah - not so keen, but possibly because of the sad bible story.

Rosamund - beautiful, elegant, love this

Marina - not so keen, but partly because it makes me think of the famous Marina. I can see the appeal though, elegant and unusual.

Jennifer - it never used to be a favourite name, except that every Jennifer I've ever met has been totally lovely, as well as intelligent, kind, pretty...!

Kezia/Keziah - prefer with an H. This has also grown on me, partly due to the connotations of beauty.

Susanna/Susannah - slightly 80s, but very pretty. Prefer with an H

Agnes - elegant and still fairly unusual.

Ramona - sorry, really don't like. I have to admit, possibly partly out of snobbery. I can see why it's beautiful, but I guess it's just associations.

Christina - was never a favourite, but it's grown on me after meeting a few lovely Christinas!

Quite a few of those names are ones which would immediately make me think there's a good chance the child has Christian parents. Not sure if that would make a difference either way to you ...

You have very similar taste in names to me!
Louisa - okay, but a bit meh.
Esther - still on the wrong side of old lady-ish.
Miriam - I'm biased as I knew an awful Miriam at school, but I do love Mimi as a nickname.
Aphra - unusual, but perhaps too unusual? I have only ever heard of Aphra Behn, no others.
Caroline - hate it. Carolina is better.
Jemima - love it, and another Mimi!
Dinah - love it.
Rosamund - nice but there are so many 'Rose' names around.
Marina - doesn't seem like a name to me.
Jennifer - old fashioned but not old fashioned enough to be cool again yet.
Kezia/Keziah - just awful!
Susanna/Susannah - meh.
Agnes - love this so much.
Ramona - meh.
Christina - I like this much more than Christine, but still not my favourite.

For me it would be Jemima, Dinah or Agnes. I think they are all quite nice though, except Kezia.
