They are all really nice names

Would you have Charlotte and then call her Lottie?

I think Jasmine is actually really nice, never even thought of that name when I was trying to pick

Wow I'm quite surprised at the love for these names - thank you!

No we wouldn't use Charlotte for Lottie. I was worrying that one would be a bit too nicknamey!

Juliet is gorgeous and my fave - so beautiful and elegant imo. Also think lovely Sylvie and Rosalie are very pretty and chic.

Matilda is a strong sounding semi classic imo and Freya and Maeve have a lovely lyrical sound (if all 3 perhaps a bit more popular).

Dislike the others - not keen on the nickname type names, Arietta, Melody and Meredith really not my taste and much prefer elegant Viola and Jessamine to Violet and Jasmine (as they sound less harsh to me.)

Maeve, Rosalie and Julia rather than Juliet. All good for grown ups.

Maeve - not keen
Matilda - overused
Melody - ding dong
Meredith - horrible

Yes Blush DW doesn't like 'book names' and I've been trying to find a way to use Arietty without using Arietty... it's a moot point anyway because I just asked DW again and she's now vetoed Arietta and Matilda. Sigh.

I like all apart from Maeve, Sylvie, Melody and Arietta. Juliet and Matilda I think are my favourites.

Don’t like Arietta and find Freya very wet. Lottie is too nicknamey.

The others are nice.

Melody is due a comeback. Such a lovely name.

I would exclude Freya and Matilda as overused but any of the others good
