Seeking name suggestions for name change.

I'm thinking about changing my name, but wanted to see if anyone might have some ideas on names that would suit me? I posted a profile picture here https://www.behindthename.com/members/181374 for facial reference. My hair is very long and at the moment, I don't have bangs. It is usually between dark sandy/dirty blonde or dark brown in color. My eyes are blue grey. Hoping to see if any names in particular come to other peoples minds when they see how I look.

Is there anything specific you're looking for in a name? For example, do you want something that might have been chosen around the time you were born, a name that's never been very popular, a name to reflect any part of your heritage or personal interests? Do you want to keep any part of your birth name, or honor anyone who's special to you?

I think we're probably better at coming up with names based on criteria like that than just your appearance, and a name that is more about the "inner" you is more likely to still feel like you in ten, twenty, fifty years.

Thank you for your reply. :)

I would like a name that ages well, but I don't really mind how common it is. I feel like I would probably be most comfortable with a classic name or a southern style name. I feel a connection with both and both are common in my family.

Some family names that I've always liked are Elizabeth, Catherine, Katherine, Mary, Marie, Molly and Evelyn. I'm not sure if any of those (or variations of them) would suit me though. Now and then I like something that doesn't fit any of those things though, like the name Melinda. It is similar to some of the names within my family, but hasn't been used yet.

Thank you for your reply. :)

Some of my favorites you suggested are Emma, Emily, Isabelle, Sarah, Sophia, Olivia, Eve, Grace and Kate. I think Jessica is a pretty name, but I found out my mom doesn't like it. Not really sure why though.

I like all of your suggestions really and appreciate you taking the time to try and help. :)
