Maya (or Maia): Very pretty. I prefer the Maia spelling, although Maya might be easier to live with. My son has a friend who spells it Mya. Halkyone: It's interesting, if kinda unwieldy. I think it's better than Halcyone. Daria: I really like it. Darius is one of my favorite male names. I don't like Daria as much, but I still think it's great. Emery: I prefer Emory, and I prefer it on a boy. It's too reminiscent of manicures on a girl. Eden: I like it. It has always sounded sort of artsy and free spirited to me, but I know many people think it sounds stripperish. Ria: Looks like it was chopped off the end of Maria or Victoria. I don't think it stands well on its own. Aspen: Nice enough, though I don't really like it. I always think of it as more of a place name than a botanical name.
Everard: It's okay. I'm more of an Everett girl. Cyrus: Great name! Talon: Horrendous name! I can't get behind naming a child Claw, Fang, Beak, or any other body part predators use to rip into their prey; I don't get how Talon ever gained ground. Sterling: Foppish. I picture a Sterling as having very soft hands, a weak chin, and an unhealthy relationship with his mother. I don't hate the name, but I'm never going to like it.
