    Ooh, you’ve got so many gorgeous names on there!

    I really love Susanna. That would be my favorite from your first list. My second choice would probably be Helena, then Juliet.

    thank you ladies!

    i too think evie and susie would be cute as sisters.

    i like juliet, just not nn jules or julie/a.

    do you guys pronounce helena hell-eh-nuh or hel-ay-na? which do you perfer?

    love penelope, what you think of nn lola?

    love emilia, just don’t really want to start an e trend.

    I would probably ask re Helena since I know it can be pronounced either way. My first guess, and the one I prefer, is hel-ay-na.
    I think Lola is OK. Penelope isn’t that appealing to me sound-wise. I think Evangeline is so much prettier.
    What if you did Amelia instead of Emilia?

    i too perfer hel-ay-na. i don’t think my mils would like hell-eh-nuh.

    i’m finding it very hard to find names just a pretty and great like evangeline.

    i like amelia. a childhood friend just named her daughter that. i have a thing were i don’t use names if i know people with it.

    Yeah, I think that is a tough name to match. :) Some that I think really could hold their name with Evangeline (both from your list and not):

    Juliet
    Anneliese
    Helena
    Annemarie
    Georgia
    Christabel
    Seraphina
    Adelia
    Lorelei
    Mirabelle
    Josephine (though I’m guessing you may want to avoid rhyming names. I think Evie and Josie would be so cute though!)
    Lucienne

    I really do think you already have some names that can work well but just wanted to throw some more ideas your way. :)
