    Alice -- It's a classic and reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.

    Cassandra -- Feels more elegant and I like that it's from mythology.

    Faye -- It feels ethereal and reminds me of fairies/fae.

    Iris -- A classy, uncommon nature name.

    Jane -- Simple and sweet. I'm not keen on month names except December as a guilty pleasure name!

    Maria -- Mary feels a bit too plain and old fashioned for me.

    Melinda -- Not a huge fan of either but Melissa feels very 80s.

    Selena or Serena – I love both of these but I’d pick Serena as it feels elegant and peaceful and I love the meaning. For a long time it was my favourite name for a girl.

    Alice though I don't love it.

    Cassia is cute.

    Faye but I like it more as a middle name. I dislike almost all virtue names so Faith is out.

    Irene. Old fashioned but cute. iris is nice, too, though.

    Jane (my late mother in law's name)

    Mary (my late sister in law's name)

    Melinda (my middle name, my daughter's first name and my middle granddaughter's middle name) cute nicknames for it.

    Selena (Serena is nice, too)

    Serena is best name out of all of them. The rest either sound too old fashion or they have been overused

    Alicia: I just feel this is prettier and rolls off the tongue

    Cassia: beautiful and unique

    Faith: a simple thing that carries me through life. I do prefer it as a middle name

    Iris: both aren't really my style but this is softer and prettier

    June: don't like either but I find Jane very plain

    Maria: picked this in memory of my cousin who died

    Melissa: I like this because I could use the nickname Lissag

    Selena: it means moon and I find it beautiful. It's also my goddaughter name

    Alicia- much more exotic than Alice. And very global.

    Cassia

    Faye- it's a classic name coming back in style

    Iris

    Neither one, unless you're in the UK where every girl is named Jane or Elizabeth.

    Maria

    Either one

    Serena
