. A favorite.
I also like Angelique
, but that's probably because I used to know one. She went by Angie
most of the time.
Angeli- names seem overwrought for my taste. Angel
is masculine-ish to me.Alexandra
, nn Alex
It's classic. Alex
is a good nn for a girl, but as a full name I think it's a little sloppy. Alexa
seems sort of slick for my taste, but it's ok. Alexandria
is okay, too, but all those syllables make it a tiny bit self-important.Lindsay
I dunno - I just don't like the others at all, and Lindsay
is alright. Ashley
sounds nice too, but I'm not really into the SHL sound in the middle; the Lind sound is prettier. 3rd choice, Sydney
- I know one. Hadley
sounds downbeat and gawky to me and I don't care for the consonants NSL together in Ansley/Ainsley Rain
Sweet and simple. It never seemed downbeat to me. You can sing in the rain and it makes flowers grow and stuff. Primrose
is almost intolerable sounding to me, and I can't decide if Willow
is wiggly or mournful, but I don't like the sound or image much.Meadow
sounds clunky oddum in my accent, Valentine
is masculine to my senses, Meadow
is self-consciously rustic - too much for me - but I think it's not ugly, so it wins.
