Amelia - it's a good choice, however it's quite popular now, at least in the US
Annika - Not a fan. This was a common name in my parents generation, so I can't really see it on a kid
Arwen - No way. LOTR and too obvious
Camilla - My mom's name. Don't like it though and I can't picture it on a kid either
Carys - I don't really have any feeling about this name. Neutral.
Eleanor / Elinor - I only like Eleanor which I think its a fantastic name and it goes great with Julian
Emilia - It's very common here in Sweden, but I think it's a sweet and quite nice name. Doesn't sound as good with Julian as Eleanor though
Emma - ZzzZZZzzZzzz
Enya - I had it on my PNL but I could never really love it. It's too tired with the singer
Fiona - As in Shrek's wife? I used to like it, but now that's all I can think of
Hanna / Hannah - My aunt changed her name to Hanna a few years ago, but I prefer the Hannah spelling. It's an okay name, a bit boring though
Johanna - Very common in my own age group. Gives me pretty much the same ZzzZzz feeling as Emma
Lena - Oh boy. I've had several teaches with this name and every single one has been at least 10 years older than my parents. When I hear Lena, I picture a chubby woman with gray hair, and that's it.
Leonie - It's okay. Prefer Leah though, or Leonora, Leona. What about Leonora / Leonor with Leonie as the nickname?
Lilith - Its okay
Linnea - Very common in my age group, but I think it's a sweet name. A bit too common for my taste, but it's still nice. Seems like people in the US/UK/Australia seems to have problems with the prn though
Maeve - I recently learned how this is pronounced. I think it might be a bit difficult to live with, but otherwise its a great name
Maya - Love it and only with this spelling. Sound OK with Julian
Noa - Used to love it, but that love has faded since Noah became my #1 boys name. Don't know how it is is Germany, but here in Sweden Noa would also be a boy. Might not be a big deal, but if it's a boys name in a lot of countries (I don't know if it is) I probably wouldn't use it
Nora - A bit boring. Prefer it as a nickname for Leonora, or Eleanor
Nova - Love it. Doesn't sound perfect with Julian though, but hey, they're individuals and everything doesn't have to match either.
