Here are a few that I'd like your thoughts on.
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.
What an interesting and varied list...
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?)
