Eeeeek. I like Sasha blush.

I'm afraid I really don't like most of the names you've listed, but, I do like:

Lorelei
Willemina
Vivienne

How about Araminta? Aurora? Coco? Saskia? Astrid?

What about Lelaina - Lainey for short.

<creeps off to change name back again so doesn't give self away with highly unusual name choice>

Love Gwendolen - on our list.
Is Willemina a name blush - I thought it was Wilhelmina! If that is right i like it with nn Mina.
Don't like Vesper - but I do like the similar Hesper.
Rosamund is also lovely!
The rest are not really my thing smile

Is that a character list from Battlestar Galactica?

Ellica Tue 29-Sep-09 16:57:27

how funny i know a of twins willow and phoenix!
i like Sapphira and Xylia out of your list

norktasticninja Tue 29-Sep-09 16:57:45

AFAIK Willemina is an accepted variant of Wilhelmina. I knew one who shortened it to Willa.

FimboFortunaFeet Tue 29-Sep-09 16:58:41

From the list Anastasia and Vivienne

bellissima Tue 29-Sep-09 20:19:25

Atalia. Can't you fly to Rome with them?

Er, have difficulty with the list. Alexandrie is surely a boy's name (okay with an extra i). Vesper - okay saw her with lovely Daniel but really doesn't sound like a name. Others eg Amaranda, Cassiela just sound like you've added an extra syllable to a name to make it more 'exotique'.

I'd stick with the Irish ones.

Pingpong Tue 29-Sep-09 20:24:57

From that list I like Seren

trainers Tue 29-Sep-09 20:26:57

You have are so creative, it is so special choosing a name.
The names I really like from your list are:-
Willemina
Vivienne
Rosamund

bluebump Tue 29-Sep-09 20:32:46

I don't like Theanora but love Thea. Otherwise like Eden and Cleo.

LynetteScavo Tue 29-Sep-09 20:37:20

Wel, you've made me smile.

Vesper? hmm

Anastasia and Sasha are lovely.

Eden is not a tall unusual around here.

Hulababy Tue 29-Sep-09 20:43:05

4 from the list:

Willow
Seren
Anastasia
Layli - lay-lee

PenguinProject Tue 29-Sep-09 22:35:39

Phoenix, Willow, Vivianne, Vesper and Eden all good - sorry more than four there, but I'm about to rule two out anyway. grin

However, Vesper and Willow may make people think of the characters of the same names (James Bond and Buffy lesbian...). As someone with an unusually spelt name, I have hated having to spell out my name repeatedly over the years and it's only 4 letters.

Cadelaide Tue 29-Sep-09 22:38:01

"tzofiya" grin

Cadelaide Tue 29-Sep-09 22:41:50

OK OK, sorry, just googled it and I see it's "proper".

Still spend all her life spelling it out though.

Cadelaide Tue 29-Sep-09 22:42:58

I really like Lorelei and Vivienne [guilty emoticon]

cece Tue 29-Sep-09 22:47:55

Kerensa - but prefer it spelt with a C

Estee - eh-stay - actually prefer Esther

Anastasia - prefer Anna tbh

Aine - awn-ya - quite like this
