I like -

Lucy - I really like this but I think I'd like it better as a nn for Lucinda or Lucia

Violet (Is this common in your area?) - this was going to be Madeline's name for quite some time but the thought of it rising too much made me run the other way.

It is one of my all time fave names.. SO doesnt like it at all :( Tabitha - I really do not do Tabitha. Maia (Would this be constantly misspelled?) Love this! But yes i think it would be misspelled a lot however now days there are so many different variations even common names are being misspelled!

Irina (ir-EE-na) - This doesn't appeal to me visually or by sound. I'm not sure exactly why. maybe it's the "reen" sound I don't like? Never cared for Irene much either.

Lucy - classic, simple, not unusual, but also not trendy or overused. What middle would you use with it?

Aveline - LOVE this. So much! I have always loved names like Eve, Eva, Adaline, etc. so this is like several of my faves rolled into one beautiful name!

Violet (Is this common in your area?) - like it, not crazy for it. Not common in my area (virginia) at all. Have never known a Violet in real life, just come across it occassionaly in movies/tv/books.

Ivy (Would there be non stop teasing with this?) - very cute, spunky. :) Not totally weird, but definitely not a common name! I don't think there would be more teasing with this than any other name! I like it.

Tabitha - it's okay. Kind of goes with the current trend of old fashioned names in my opinion. Will always make me think of bewitched.

Maia (Would this be constantly misspelled?)

Hmmm, I'm not sure about mn's at this point for Lucy...there are a few meaningful options, but I am really not sure. Feel free to make some suggestions!

Irina (ir-EE-na)
I would pronounce this ee REE nah, and presume the bearer had some Eastern European heritage, though it may be usable even if she did not. If you want the long "I" sound (as in eye), I'd go with Irena. I like either name.

Lucy
I like this, but it seems popular. In the past year I know of two Lucias born in or close to my circle (different pronunciations), and I know of many online too. That said, it's on my list and a definite possibility for a girl. And of course, many popular names are popular because they are pretty, sweet, and have plenty of history. Lucy is a family name for us.

Aveline
Never sure of the pronunciation. Doesn't appeal to me.

Violet (Is this common in your area?)
Not common in my area (central MA); I know none. Pretty name. Love the flower.

Ivy (Would there be non stop teasing with this?)
I wouldn't see much teasing when little. I'd think there'd be subtler, "funnier" jokes as she got older (might not be funny after you've heard them enough). My associations would be: IV (as in the thing they stick in your arm to give you nutrients by blood; Ivy League colleges; poison ivy.

Tabitha
Lovely name, but the "tabby" part has always thrown me off. Unless you're naming a cat.

Maia (Would this be constantly misspelled?)
I would have no clue whether it was Maya or Maia. Not even sure which I'd guess first. Probably Maia first if she was Caucasian, Maya if not, though I'm not quite sure why... in my head Maia is blonde but Maya has black hair and tan skin, maybe because of the Maya culture.
