These are the names I've started to like recently so they seem fresh and new to me right now. They are no long time favorites, but either names I just discovered or names I liked a long time ago that I have rediscovered.

Marlowe
Zelda
Journey
Ottoline

Shiloh
Theo
Henry
Otto

The same thing happened to me, by the way. I used to love really frilly names about a year ago. My favorites were Ariella, Isabella, Estella, Liliana, Arielle, Ariana. They all seem way too sickly sweet to me now, with the exception of Estella which I still like somewhat. But in general I hardly like any names that end in -a anymore, unless they're really old fashioned and unpopular like Zelda and Matilda. I'm getting sick of names that contain popular sounds such as -ella, -ana etc

I'm especially sick of these (no offense to anyone who likes them):

Ariana
Liliana
Isabella
Eliana
Aliana
Ella (this seems so empty to me, it's so bland)
Juliana
Adriana

Ahhhhh I wish this whole -ella, -ana, Ari-, Eli thing would just stop. And in general I hope -a names will be replaced by -e names soon. Diane, Elaine, Louise, Eve, Camille, Briane - they seem like such a breath of fresh air already next to Ella, Ariella and Juliana even though some of them are still a bit dated.

But Lucille isn't cutesy to me at all. I really like it. It's very no-nonsense and down to earth. I've really started to like Otto as well, together with Ottoline.
