Top Ten Beautiful-Sounding Words

Too many lovely-sounding words for me to remember. If you have any more you know of, feel free to add :).

The Top Ten

1 Serendipity

Naw. I knew you'd be here:).

2 Quintessential

A quintessential example. Ironic:).

3 Radiant

Naw. 'Sjust me in mah beaver-felt bowler an' marine-iguana ropers:).

4 Resplendent

Naw. 'Sjust me in mah green gabardees; mah bonaroo britches; some danger-high-voltage slacks;).

5 Velvet
6 Graceful

Yup. That's me, with one foot in a paint bucket an' t'other in the toilet.

Nice. That's quite an image I have there! :). - Britgirl

7 Evanescent
8 Eloquence
9 Lullaby

"...c. 3000 BECAUSE? " Did a chimp develop this illiterate software?

Wow..."lullaby" seems to have lost that beautiful sparkly melody it once had. BUT at least I know some useful (? ) facts I can pluck out of the deepest, darkest depths of my cobweb -infested brain to bombard unsuspecting members of the public with. And for that, I am truly grateful to you. Thank you, Sir ;). - Britgirl

From the Hebrew "Lilith abi! " ("Lilith stay away"), as an admonition from Jewish parents to the infanticidal succubus to not harm their children in the night. Kinda messes up the phonetic beauty, eh? ;).

OR, it could be taken from the nearly forgotten Lullubi tribes of Iraq c.3000 because. This would also, perhaps "serendipitously":), coincide with the generally accepted location of Eden, and, therefore, with the existence (or not) of Adam's first wife, Lilith, who alternatively is assigned blame for talking Adam into eating the Forbidden Fruit. Lilith, it is said, became a demon - a succubus and baby killer - owing to her rebellion against both God and her husband, and for engaging in bestiality as well as sex with demons. Probably why modern feminists love her so dearly. On t'other hand, could all be coinkydink. Whaddu I know? :).

10 Songbird

The Contenders

11 Butterfly

Thank you! You know, when you really put your mind to it you can be quite...normal yourself :). - Britgirl

You're NOT insane? Aw, well, now... that changes EVERYTHING;)).

Ah, the "butterfly effect." So if a coarse colonial heathen aspires toward (sometimes ribald and often corny - or vice-versa) jocularity, can it really make a properly (somewhat) reserved (somewhat less:) Englishwoman chortle some 4,000 miles distant?

12 Bloom
13 Celestial
14 Virtuosity
15 Sparkle
16 Rhythm

Kinda sorta sounds like what it is, no? ;).

Mmm...certainty does! It's kinda sorta makes me want to slur: "Heyyy...let's get something going...! " ;). - Britgirl

"Chica-boom, chica-boom - donchya just love it?...":).

17 Voluptuous
18 Piano

Ha! How'd you get to be so smart;). - Britgirl

Yes. Patti on one side. Olivia on t'other. An' a lucky son of a buck named Ian right smack in the middle;).

Oh I dunno. Guess it struck me early on that dumb just weren't gonna work;).

P an' O are adjacent letters in the alphabet :). - Britgirl

19 Calliope

Reminds me of ice cream on a sultry Summer's eve'nin':).
