I’m running a bit late with the photo shoot of the first resin dolls, but it should wrap up tomorrow.
In the meantime, help me name this pretty doll. I’d love to hear your suggestions on what she should be called.

What’s Russian for “Mine” ??? She’s stunning! And I couldn’t be happier for you and your resin endeavor. I know it might have felt like pushing a boulder uphill but you’re here and they’re magnificent.
She has very beautiful sorrow face, in Indonesia we have story about beautiful girl who has step mother and very pain life. She remains me of that story. So I would love to give her a name â€ Anandaâ€. That’s mean the most lovely daughter
So many wonderful names suggested for this exquisite girl! I like Cornelia, as Yuri suggested above… from King Lear; a beautiful daughter, loyal, kind and sad all at once. But if she belonged to me I might name her Angelica, after a doll who was bewitched in one of my favourite books I read as a child ‘The House of the Wind’ by Averil Demuth (and still reread every few years). Good luck choosing!
Wow, tons of great name ideas on here. A previous commenter had suggested “Ophelia”; I am casting my vote for that! I also read a book a while back called “Mermaid’s Song” and the main character in that was a mermaid named Elan. I imagined her to have the same wistful, sad and sweet beauty as your doll. So I am also suggesting either Elan or Merra.
This is a really great doll, Marina. Clearly you can work your magic on resin as well as porcelain!
She’s beautiful. I’d call her RiviÃ¨re, it’s river in French –because of her long, flowing silver hair, which looks like pure mountain water. It’s pronounced REE-vee-ay-r
Or RÃªverie, because her expression, while sad, looks also like she’s daydreaming. There’s something soft, pleading, almost hopeful behind the sadness of her red-rimmed eyes. I also think the soft pronunciation suits her: RAY-verh-EE. I think a French name would suit her perfectly, and in both these propositions, I love the soft, purring “r” sounds.
(she makes me think of the Lady of Shallot painting by Waterhouse. I have a reproduction on my desk and under the sadness, I always see something like sweet relief and a quiet longing.)
Means â€œsea white, sea fair.â€ The very appropriate name of the 6th century mermaid caught by a fisherman in Lough Neagh. He brought her to St. Comghall who baptized her which transformed her into a woman.[www.babynamesofireland.com]
i like Ophilia, her look is so sorrowful. i also loved the Last Unicorn when i was a little girl so Amalthea would be great too.
i looked at her and thought of a sea nymph, so maybe something like Lirea.
Here’s a list of pretty Roman/Greek mythological figures that often have tragic ends (which fits the sad expression on your dolls face)
Althea (I love this one)
Circe (My favourite–I think it suits your doll!)
I add Deva (‘god-like, divine’ in Hindi)
Neiva (‘snow’ in Spanish)
and my personal favorite Lumina (‘brilliant light’ in Latin).
She looks like a Lumina to me, a soft melancholy creature filling the world with her mesmerizing light.
First of all, let me say that she’s pure love… I wish I can own one some day… ^_^
About the names, the first one that came to my mind was Ophelia, but then they start to came to my mind names with the warm “A”, as Althea, Amanda, Alma (soul), Arienne… And, of course: Gaia (“Mother Earth” Greek goddess).
