His favourites are Emily, Hannah, Charlotte, Louise and Flora (which I like but feel like we can't use).

My favourites are Francesca, Alma (it's such a "warm" name imo), Leona, Elena (DH doesn't like it for admittedly very understandable reasons) and Selma (DH vetoed it).

TIA smile

Serena?

eloise feels slightly akward (Idk why...).

I like Helena but it apparently sounds / looks too much like Elena.

Leonora is lovely. thanks smile

I like Louisa but it feels a bit "stern".

They don't feel right.

My ideal girl's name would end in a and sound "warm" / soft (not too spikey) without being fluffy / twee.
It also wouldn't be too popular or outrageously uncommon.

My standard's might be a bit too high.

Natalia.
Fiona's a great name, due a revival IMO.
Mariana (Shakespearean, I think)

floriad Sat 10-Feb-18 22:26:09

Fiona is nice. I think I might genuinely like it.

Paloma is lovely but OH probably won't agree.

AnElderlyLadyOfMediumHeight Sat 10-Feb-18 22:26:29

I'm on a roll!
Lucia.
Seraphina.
Miranda.
Miriam (doesn't end in an A but is a beautiful name)
Susanna

We were going to use Thea if we had a girl this time.

DC have mentioned children in their classes with names I like - Tia, Tessa, Saffia and Mia.
I think I like the "a" haha!

Also like Molly
