I like Lydia
are alright. Can't see Jace
on a girl, other than as a nickname.
I respect Astrid
. I'm glad the name was chosen for a strong, take-charge heroine in the "Dragon" film. As much as I want to like the name, neither syllable has a sound my ear can perceive as lovely.Aella
is completely new to me. My brain first saw the word, "paella" (which I've never had) without the "p", but your pronunciation is pleasant-sounding. My guess is the average reader would wonder how it ought to be pronounced.
