Writing Resource: Female Fantasy Names

I’m starting a new series since I’ve been in a blog writing slump.  This isn’t really a ‘book blog’ thing, but I love names, and I love writing and obviously, writers are usually bookworms so it works.  I will actually be adding to these lists over time so you can save it as a bookmark if you want.  Also, comment your favourite fantasy sounding names in the comments.  And no they are not in really in alphabetical order, just categorized as such.
