    I was trying to narrow down my name list of girls, but could only get it narrowed down to 12…I would love some opinions on the names. Which ones do you like best?

    Arabela/Arabella
    Aria
    Ariella
    Brynn
    Caia/Kaia
    Caerwyn
    Calla
    Haven
    Kiersten
    Lena/Lina
    Skylar
    Sophia/Sofia

    Arabela/Arabella – too southern-princess for me but lots of good nn potential
    Aria – doesn’t seem complete
    Ariella – pretty
    Brynn – one of my favorites on your list. Simple, pretty..
    Caia/Kaia – I like Kai for a boy?
    Caerwyn – Seems kind of made up?
    Calla – pretty, but again, sounds like more of a nn
    Haven – I like!
    Kiersten – I like! Prefer Kiera though.
    Lena/Lina – prn. like Lay-na? If so, then I like Lena. I don’t like Lee-na. And either way I think it would be nicer as a nn for Elena, etc.
    Skylar – has always been one of my favorites.
    Sophia/Sofia – if the popularity doesn’t bother you then keep it on the list!!

    My top 5 of yours:
    Brynn
    Skylar
    Haven
    Kiersten
    Sophia

    Arabela/Arabella – I’m not a big fan. I like other -bella names a lot more, but also, they’re all really trendy right now.
    Aria – Pretty, simple. Not my favoritie, but it’s a lovely name.
    Ariella – I prefer Ariel or Arielle, honestly, but Ariella is nice too.
    Brynn – Pretty, simple.
    Caia/Kaia – I love Kaia! And definitely prefer the K spelling. Such a cute name, and relatively uncommon considering how well it fits with current naming trends.
    Caerwyn – Had to google how to pronounce this, which I see as always a bad sign. It’s much more straightforward than I’d expected, though – I’m so used to the crazy Gaelic names so many people like.
    Calla – Not my style. Seems sort of incomplete – I’d prefer something like Callen.
    Haven – Not my style.
    Kiersten – Something about this spelling makes it look like a boys name. Like a combination of Kieran and Trysten. But Spelling it Kirsten comes with it’s own set of problems. Hmm.
    Lena/Lina – Love it! I have a good friend who goes by Lena as short for Alene. I think it’s really simple and pretty. I also really like Luna.
    Skylar – Honestly I like it better for a boy, but I think it’s pretty alright on a girl too. It’s way more unisex than all your other options though.
    Sophia/Sofia – Super popular right now, but I really do love it. If the popularity doesn’t bother you, go for it. But if it does, I’d hold off.

    My favorites are Kaia and Lina for sure, but you have several options I really like.

    I love Arabella! I also like Aria (and Arietta), Skylar, Caerwyn (loving the ae, and I was fine with pronunciation) and Lena (if your saying Lay-na).

    I like Brynn and Kaia best. Aria is pretty too, but has less substance to it somehow.
