India - I think of an Indian girl first. I see a dark haired girl (long hair). A little air of mystery, exotic, quiet, thoughtful, but with a wild side. Smart, but not showy or braggy.

Daisy - A cutesy image comes to mind. Blonde, girlie, playful, youthful. Lot's of energy, spring/summer baby. A confident girl who easily makes friends, dates a lot, everyone likes being around her, kind.

Fox - (boy?) - Spunky! Confident (I think the name will require it), outgoing, strong personality. A clean cut 'all american boy' image comes to mind,

India - I picture a girl with large, dark eyes, olive or darker skin, and long dark hair.

IMO:

India: wouldn't work for a blonde-haired blue-eyed girl. It is definitely exotic. I would assume the parents had travelled or spent time there. An alternative that isn't so site-specific would be Indira.

Daisy: I went to HS with a Daisy. Some flower names like Rose, Hyacinth, or Iris make me think of older ladies. I can't imagine them as feisty or lively teenagers. Other flower names like Daisy, Violet, and Jasmine are definitely "younger" feeling to me.

Fox: For a boy. With the right LM. Sure. But for a girl?

Eben: Someone misspelled Evan. Or dropped the ending of Ebenny.

I only asked because I remember a couple of years back there was a movie with a female character named Fox...I remember that it annoyed me horribly at the time.

India:
I'm really not a fan of naming kids after countries without a strong reason. I would prefer Indigo or even just Indy/Indi/Indie.
That said,
Long dark hair, darker skin, hippiish, multicolored clothing with different fabrics, long skirt, lots of interesting jewelry. artistic.

Daisy
Blond hair, blue eyes. Young. Wears a feminine denim outfit. Likes to play in fields and pick flowers. Not sure this grows up well. I did meet a Daisy once, probably in her 20s or early 30s.

Fox
Redhead, mischievious, fast, active. Likes to spend time in the woods looking for critters, climbing trees, making forts, pretending or trying to live off the land. He could definitely be Daisy's brother. (Alternately, man in his early thirties or late twenties searching for the truth about aliens. ;)

Eben: Handsome, dark hair, studious, intense. I picture a teenager or college-aged guy, maybe a little older. Capable of athleticism, but not really into it. Tall.

India: last year I would have thought of Gone with the Wind. This past year H had a little boy in his kindy class that had a little sister India. She was a spritely little thing, petite, with a penchant for outrageous clothes. For example, she'd rock a tutu. Striped tights, tye dye shirt, rain boots and a stocking cap to walk her brother to school. She has sandy blonde hair, and brown eyes. I now see this name working on Carrie Bradshaw.

Daisy: This goes two ways for me, Great Gatsby or my friend's mom. Opposite ends of the spectrum. Neither the best model for a name. Daisy Buchanan was wealthy and pretty, but flighty and flawed. My friends mom is rough, stern, and very plain looking.

Fox: this name makes me think more about the parent, than the child. Of course all names are an extension of the parents, but some names say a lot more about the parent than other names, does that make sense? I see a little boy who wears black onesies while being pushed around the farmer's market in his Bugaboo. His dad drives a Volkswagen Jetta with an Apple sticker in the back and wears thick black glasses. I see him as an only child.

Eben: Cool boy everyone likes, he's not great at any one thing, but good at everything. In the school plays and on the soccer team. Darker features, tall, and wears fitted white shirts with jeans and black converse.
