Romantic: Girls

"Women in a Garden" by Claude Monet
My definition of a romantic name is something usually long, frilly, sometimes a little heavy and dusty or sometimes whispery and soft, a name I could imagine on a lady walking through a garden in Victorian clothes, or at a ball, dancing in pink, lilac, or blue. Maybe even on a girl with hair cropped to her chin, wandering outside barefooted, a notepad in her hand, drawing butterflies and getting caught in the rain. The smells I imagine are petrichor, linen, and roses. Sounds are water in a fountain, rustling of leaves, pencil on paper.
