I like Paylee - i went to school with a girl of that name and i thought it was a very unusual, pretty name. Another unusual name of someone i went to school with is Brecquelyn (BRECK-LIN). I thought that was interesting.
some others i like are

aurora
genesis
eden
ivy

Is Jemima pronounced like aunt jemima the syrup? if so, i don't care for it because it just makes me hungry for pancakes..... no offense :-)

There's a girl at my dance studio named Kiana. I just think that's beautiful. Of course, she herself looks like a little porcelain doll so that probably helps. And yes, Jemima is sounded like the syrup and I agree. It just makes me hungry.

LOL
aunt jemima is a type of pancake mix and syrup here in the US - possibly the most popular kind. there "spokesperson" is a large black woman in a red dress, white apron and hankerchief (sp?) on her head - so, in the US if you say Jemima, most people with think of aunt jemima.

I heard the name Gabrienne or Gabrienna some where on this forum and I love it. Nice and unique but still down to earth.

Kay,
You and I have really simular taste in names. I like gracefully old fashioned classic names that not over-used today. Here are some more for you...see if any of these suit your tastes:

Pheobe
Paloma
Naomi
Evelyn
Lucinda
Rose
Mary
Louisa
Nora
Katerina
Nadia
Nancy
Lydia
Hyacinth (nn Cynthia)
Sheila

And just to add weight to your case...I live in the U.S., I know about Aunt Jemima syrup and I STILL love the name. I think its a matter of taste. I love that it means "dove."

Just wanted to give a little input about one of the names on the list. Marcella, I was named this by my mother and I do not use this name other than for filling out official paperwork. I go by Marcie, I am also finding this to be a more common name as of recently. I personally favor names from the Aurthurian Era. IE: Gwenevire, Alexander, Avalon, Morgane. I also like the name Talia for a girl.
