  • Ivy- a sweet little girl I know named Ivy
    Felicity- a character in a favorite childhood book
    Karis- an "Americanized" version of the Welsh name Carys. I would spell it Carys.
    Kalista-It doesn't really make me think of anything. I don't care for it, personally.

  • Ivy - my cat. lol Also Poison Ivy, but I still like it.
    Felicity - Huffman
    Karis - I like it, does really remind me of anything.
    Kalista - Flockhart

    I would spell it Karis.

  • I still love Ivy Clarissa. lol. It's beautiful.

    And if I was going to go with Karis, I would choose it spelled as Karis because it's simple and I don't think anyone would have a hard time pronouncing it or spelling it.

  • I should say that Karis DOESN'T really remind me of anything.

    Answer by shanlaree at 12:48 PM on Nov. 1, 2010

  • Felicity Lorelei

  • Karis Felicity Bennett

    I would probably spell it Karis, but my middle name is Karissa so I might be biased.

  • I didn't answer your whole question!

    Ivy - Poison Ivy is my 1st thought, but I do like it

    Clarissa - "Clarissa Explains It" - nice, sweet, smart

    Felicity - Felicity Huffman is my 1st thought, but I think if I met someone with that name I would think "joyful"

    Lorelei - Gilmore Girls - Sweet, Happy 

    Karis - Beloved, Caring 

    Kalista - Callista Flockhart or my daughter's friend Kalista who apparently talks a lot
