Clementine: This is one word name that I just don't like. It's too long and I feel the sounds are clunky.
North: Very classic middle name and I would have liked it with regal names like Henry or Frederick but I'm just turned off by the recent popularity spike because of North West.....
Rebecca: I just think it's a little 90's
Emma: I love Emma! It's on my list and is so simple and sweet :)
Daisy: I really like Daisy too because it reminds me of The Great Gatsby however I prefer it as a nickname!
Lily: Love! So pretty.
Avery: I have a male cousin named Avery and could never imagine it on a female but now I've seen it on so many little girls and I think its adorable and unisex without being too masculine.
Petunia: I usually like flower names but I think this one has too many hard sounds with the 'p' and 't'.
Iris: I really like this, it would sound awesome with a long, feminine middle name.
London: It seems trendy but I still like it. Paris is really sweet as well!
Aphrodite: Meh... I don't know. I think there are better names to use from Greek mythology.
Alice: I have a new love for Alice! Very cute.
Coralie: Love love love! I love all the Cora names. Cora is such a sweet and sassy name all at the same time!
Jane: Great for a middle but I think its plain.
Jamie: I prefer James on a boy so I don't like Jamie.
Chloe: I like Chloe. However, I like Clea better.
Vida: Reminds me of Vera which I like better.
Marigold: I like this. I can't decide whether I like Marigold or Meredith better.
Vaida: I don't know about this.
Poppy: SO cute as a nickname I love it. I would go for something more formal to fall back on in later life though!
Primrose: Cute. The Hunger Games has so many great names!
Gloria: Dated and reminds me of the hippo in Madagascar.
Edith: I love it even though I'm not big on biblical reference names.
Cordelia: Cute but I'd stick with Coralie instead.
Alba: Hmm.. I don't think I'd ever use this one.
Giselle: I actually think the name Giselle is pretty and it's rarely heard so would be a refreshing choice.
Tawny: I just don't like this.
Audrey: I like Aubrey more but there is nothing wrong with Audrey.
Lucy: You've probably noticed I love short and sweet girls name. I think Lucy is a beautiful name.
Gertrude: This is a name that should stay off the charts.
India: I know a dog named India so it ruins it!
Elle/Ellie: Ellie is adorable. I'd pick something longer though and use it as a nickname.
Florence: Really cool name.
Cambria: I just wouldn't name my child after a font.
Rose: Beautiful and since its so common as a middle name, it is so refreshing as a first.
Britney: Very dated, definitely not a favourite.
Thank you so much everyone for your feedback, keep it coming! I would be open to some suggestions as well on what you all enthuse would be better for a middle or a first name, and some middles or firsts to match. Also, to help out, I will explain a bit about why I like some certain names and list my favorites/top faves.
North- Honestly, Kimye is where I got it. I think it's sounds weird for a fn, and silly and stupid with last name west, but I get a magical, sparkly feeling from this name. Very pretty to me as a middle, but I am sure I will never use it.
Clementine- ''I don't care, I LOVE IT'' ... Said Icona Pop! I think this is gorgeous as well, and just not a fruit-food. It's actually a older name, old fashioned for those of you who have not known.
Tawny, Britney, Alba- Kind of like these, not my favorites. Tawny is a cute nickname, Alba has a pretty feel, and Britney is kind of dated.
Once again, thanks in advance- I can count on you berries!!
With the new names you have added :
Wren - I like this. My favourite bird name is Raven, but Wren would be my second favourite.
Spencer - This is on my boy's list. Sorry, I hate this on a girl.
Caroline - lovely and classic. You could always sing "Sweet Caroline" to her.
Georgia - Really cute and adorable.
Georgina - Prefer Georgia. Georgina is too fussy for me.
Clementine* - There's something about this name that I'm not fond of, but overall, it's not a bad name.
North - I don't like this for a girl, especially after Kimye baby.
Rebecca* - I'm neutral on this name. A part of me finds it a little plain, while the other part finds it hauntingly mysterious, thanks to Daphne Du Maurier's novel.
Emma - Sweet and simple, but I prefer Emmeline.
Daisy - A better name for a pet, imho. It just seems so cutesy to me.
Lily - I like this, but it's so popular right now.
Avery - Not my favorite.
Petunia - Not my cup of tea.
Iris - Very pretty.
London - Not my style.
Aphrodite - I think this would make a better middle name.
Alice - I love this.
Coralie - Cute.
Jane - Simple and strong, I like it.
Jamie - Not my style.
Chloe - I like it.
Vida - Not my style.
Marigold - It might be cute as a middle name.
Vaida - Not my style.
Poppy* - A little too cutesy to me.
Primrose - Cute, but I like it better as a middle name.
Gloria - Not really my style.
Edith - Not my cup of tea.
Cordelia - This is slowly growing on me, I think.
Alba - Not my style.
Giselle - Cute, but I wouldn't use it.
Tawny - I kinda like it.
Audrey - Pretty and classic.
Lucy - Sassy and cute.
Gertrude - I don't like it at all.

Ellie - I rather see this as a nickname for a fuller version.
Florence - Cute.
Cambria - Alright.
Rose - Lovely.
Britney* - A bit dated now.
Favorite Girls Names:
Clementine Pretty but nms
North Nms (and it would be taken off the list if it was due to recent 'news')
Rebecca It's a nice name but the nn Becky makes me cringe
Emma Very pretty name
Daisy Again, pretty name but nms
Lily A very popular name/nn. I know of 2 or 3 little girls who have the nn of Lily but have more formal names of Lillian, or Liliana.
Avery I know this is slowly making it's way to the girls' naming board but I still see this as a masculine name.
Petunia All I can think of is the horrible aunt from Harry Potter
London I think place names should have a story behind them (we met there, we married there, we honeymooned there...etd), otherwise it's just odd - though not all places make good names.
Aphrodite Such a pretty name though I worry about the teasing/horrid nn that are possible and it's nms.
Alice A timeless classic.
Jane Another timeless classic.
Jamie A universally unisex name. Very pretty.
Chloe I just get this vision of a spunky, independent person.
Marigold Nms but a pretty name nonetheless. Mari is a pretty nn
Vaida Nms but it's a pretty name. A person I used to work with named her daughter Vada (from the movie My Girl)
Poppy Seems more nicknamey to me than actual name.
Primrose Pretty name though I'm afraid that it's going to be dated due to the popularity of the Hunger Games.
Gloria Pretty, wonder what you'd pair it with to give it some character.
Edith Nms. Gives off a dated feel to me.
Cordelia Pretty! I would use it if it didn't clash with our last name.
Alba Like the feminine version of Albus? As in Dumbledore?
Giselle Pretty but I'm never quite sure how to pronounce it.
Audrey Very pretty! I may have to add this to my list of potentials
Lucy Pretty nn. I would want to give a more formal name though but I don't care for Lucille..maybe Lucia?
Gertrude Pretty but has dated feel to it. All I can see is two little old ladies sitting around having tea and one says, "Now Gerty..."
India A place name (see London)
Florence I know this isn't strictly a place name but it has that feel to it. (See London)
Cambria Came-bree-a? Cam-bree-a? Kahm-bree-a? just nms
Rose Pretty, elegent, simple.
Britney Still too popstar-y for me but it is a pretty name.
WREN Cute. Nms but I could see a little girl rocking this name.
SPENCER Purely a boy's name. Sorry. I think this is just too masculine of a name.
CAROLINE A timeless classic. Very very pretty name.
GEORGIA Love this name. It's one of the few 'place' names that I love irregardless.
GEORGINA Prefer Georgia but this isn't a bad name.
Clementine Add me to the list who never understood it's appeal. I think the old song about the unattractive young woman.
North I don't like it for a girl and sort of for a boy. Expect this one to be seen as copying Kim Kardashian.
Rebecca I love this one! I have a dear friend who's a fitness trainer with this name. She goes by the full name always. Timeless
Emma Timeless but popular. I know several Emmas my age 25, and it's number 2 right now.
Daisy Love this! It does seem cutsey, and there is the Great Gatsby. Still it's kind of on my favorites list.
Lily love this! Very popular though.
Avery A male name that is now unisex. My cousin named his adorable daughter this.
Petunia I don't like this flower name. I didn't like Aunt Petunia from Harry Potter much either.
Iris I love this one! It doesn't work with my current last name though. It will depend on whom I marry.
London Not my favorite or style. It's ok.
Aphrodite same as London
Alice Pretty, timeless, and literary!
Coralie Cute as a button. I would prefer Cora. Makes me think of Anastasiaruby.
Jane love this one! Timeless and literary!
Jamie It's going back to the boys. It's one of the many 80's and 90's retro names on your list.
Chloe Very popular, but nice.
Vida Nice. It is a word in Spanish.
Marigold Love this one! Top girls name of the day!
Vaida Not my style. Unsure of pronunciation, which will be a problem.
Poppy Not my style. A Namenerd name. I used to love it, but people here connect Poppy to Opium Poppy. Was on my list at 14 and outgrew.
Primrose Another flower name! I like this one, but probably would never use it.
Gloria Kind of dated. Still the nickname Glory is cute and I like the old song. (Look it up on youtube) "They shouted it every night: Gloria G-l-o-r-I-a"
Edith On the rise, maybe thanks to Downton Abbey. Old lady chic.
Cordelia On my favorites list. So many nicknames, but cool on it's own.
Alba Not my style.
Giselle I like this! Distinctive and yet familiar! I really liked Enchanted. One someone could talk me into.
Tawny More a nickname. Or a kitten.
Audrey An old favorite, but I moved on.
Lucy Very cute, but still grown up. A literary classic.
Gertrude Not my style. Still dated.
India Not really one I like.
Elle A 80's and 90's I love. Very sleek. I think it could work.
Ellie Too nickname for my taste. I would like a formal name with it.
Florence It's all right. Ready for a comeback, but not one I would use.
Cambria Not my style
Rose I love this one quiet elegance.
Britney Too dated.
All in all you have great taste. I would suggest Dahlia, Magnolia, and Fern as names I could see you loving. Good Luck!
Clementine - not my cup of tea, it's a small orange to me

Petunia - Not my taste, plus it sounds a bit old lady

Lucy - Like this one
Gertrude - Ugh. Sorry, but it's not only dated but not attractive either.
India - I don't care for place names much but it's ok
