    Annika -- Like this one a lot
    Brielle -- I think of this as a smoosh name
    Cheyenne -- Yuck.  Screams "white trash" to me.
    Ivy -- Cute!
    Isla -- Gets a lot of love on this board, but NMS.
    Malin (pronounced May-lin) -- Love it
    Noelle -- Nice, but possibly tough at Christmas
    Shayla -- a smoosh name for sure.
    Vienna -- sausage? Austria?  Just say no to this one.

    My daughter, who is 15, wants to play along.  This way you'll get a multi-generational response.  Here are her thoughts:

    Annika -- not the worst, makes me think of Anakin Skywalker

    Brielle -- NO! It sounds fake.

    Cheyenne -- No opinion.  It's okay.

    Ivy -- I like it!

    Isla -- No.....

    Malin -- Yes -- thumbs up for this one!

    Noelle -- Yeah!  I like it!

    Shayla -- Don't love it

    Vienna -- Maybe not...

  • Favorites: Isla and Malin
    Okay: Shayla, Annika, Ivy
    Toss: Vienna, Brielle, Noelle, Cheyenne
  • Honest advice, if your husband is picky, make him come up with a list as well. I've hung around here enough to see posters complain their partners veto everything they suggest, and the easiest way to avoid that is to find common ground from the start. Print two copies of the top 1000, each of you go through with a highlighter, go from there.

    As far as your current list. Ivy and Noelle are the clear winners. The rest are either not my style,  or really bad/tasteless  (Cheyenne, please drop it )

  • I like Annika and Vienna.  I have a friend whose daughter is Veanna.  So pretty!
  • Ivy, Isla and Noelle are nice 
  • I like Annika and Malin (though I think it would often be pronounced "Ma-lin"). 

  • Ivy, Isla, Malin are the only ones I like even a little bit
  • I like Noelle the best. Ivy and Isla are nice as well.

    Trying this again because TB ate my reply. 

    Ivy and Noelle are pretty. 

    Shaylah and Malin are okay. 

    Cheyenne and Vienna are cities, not babies. 

    Annika and Brielle- no. You could do Gabrielle and use Brielle as a nn.
