Name suggestions!

Okay people I need help naming my little girl parrotlet-she is super sweet (but not a push over), social, cuddly, and brave! I need something cute and possibly a little old fashion? So far I have come up with the following names but I am not stuck on any yet. So suggestions would be awesome. All of my birds are named after something related to literature so trying to stick to that theme. That is why I struggle with the last 2 because I don't think they are related to anything literary. Tell me your top 3. In no order of preference:

Eden
Esme (sounds like ez-may)
Esmee (sounds like ez-me)
Bronte
Mae
Clarey
Cleo
Day
Primrose
Jem or Jemma
Elsie
Minnow
And TheKarens name a while back of Dot which I love

I really like Esme and Primrose from your list! Just curious, since I know you were kinda resistant to naming her earlier so there wasn't as much of a bond if it didn't work out, does choosing a name mean you're more inclined to keep her? She really is beautiful (:

Yes I plan to keep her Can I ask do you prefer the French Esme (sounds like Ezmay) or Esmee (sounds like ez-me)?

Aw lovely (: she really is a stunning little bird. Between the two, I would have to say the pronunciation as Ez-may. Its simple, pretty and different than most bird names.

She doesn't look like a Cleo (speaking from experience with my Cleo lol)
I really love Clara actually! Reminds me of Clara from the Nutcracker. Since you didn't put Clara on your poll I voted for Primrose which I love too.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
I like Esme (ez-may), Primrose and Dot! She looks like a really sweet little thing! I do hope her and Oliver get along and behave with the other birds, and then have cute babies!

Thank you. Oliver and her are getting along really well. I haven't bothered introducing them (or allowing them to interact with) Mina and Cozette. Mina is to unpredictable. Also, I don't think that Oliver would be scared of her anymore now that he has Esme'--he is a lot more brave.
