Selecting the 100 Most Beautiful Words Is Not An Arbitrary Act

Completely not subjective, or anything. 

Despite this, "Dr. Goodword" is up to the task, apparently, and shares his list of the 100 Most Beautiful Words in English.

Overall, a pretty good attempt.  As a check, it includes some of my favorite words, including Ephemeral, Epiphany, Halcyon, Panacea, and Serendipity.

Yet it lacks one of my absolute favorite words: Unfurl.  A troubling omission!  Also, is Beauty not beautiful enough a word to make the list? 

So, did Dr. Goodword leave out any other words that deserve to be on this list?  Let me know in the comments.
