1.) Clementine, Willa, Agatha, or Eugenie?
Willa -- I have a thing for two-syllable A-enders for girls.
2.) Lavinia, Octavia, Leora, or Melvina?
Octavia -- great Olivia alternative
3.) Joanna, Teresa, Adele, or Cornelia?
Adele -- It's so sweet, and it reminds me of "Jane Eyre"
4.) Myra, Alberta, Selma, or Louisa?
Louisa -- I LOVE this one. It reminds me of "The Sound of Music" and of Louisa May Alcott. I think it should be more popular than it is.
5.) Olga, Barbara, Estelle, or Marguerite?
Marguerite -- I like Margaret, and this French version is pretty if you want something a little different.
6.) Vera, Marion, Lulu, or Dorothy?
Marion -- This is another favorite of mine. It makes me think of Robin Hood's sweetheart. Very romantic! I also like Dorothy and Vera, though.
7.) Beulah, Blanche, Olive, or Esther?
Oh, Beulah, for sure! I actually know a little girl whose middle name is Beulah.
8.) Katherine, Greta, Clarice, or Jemima?
Katherine -- All time favorite girls' name.
9.) Beverly, Patricia, Norma, or Geraldine?
Oh, I don't like any of these! Maybe Norma, if I had to choose.
10.) Elaine, Carol, Wanda, or Doris?
Elaine -- I love Arthurian names.
11.) Bonnie, Yvette, Iris, or Naomi?
Bonnie -- For a while (when I first started on Yahoo Answers), Bonnie was my favorite girls' name. I like its simple Scottish vibe.
12.) Sylvia, Arlene, Charla, or Jacqueline?
Sylvia -- This is one that has been climbing my favorites list recently. I think it's due for a revival. It makes me think of woodland maidens.
13.) Eleanor, Juanita, Brenda, or Audrey?
Oh, Eleanor! It ranges from #2 to #5 on my favorite names list. I love its simple elegance, its regal feel, and its Jane Austen vibe.
Great names, Noelle!
