Ooh, fun prompt. How about:
This sounds extremely similar to how the infamous ottilie described her and her husband's taste in names. Hm...
From your list, I like:
Meaning is the most important thing, absolutely. I would rather have a name that relates to our family history or a figure of strength rather than some empty placeholder name, however pretty it...

I also couldn't just pick 5. The last spot is a tie. This is also a list of usable names, which unfortunately doesn't include Alice (said with my surname, Alice sounds exactly like Alexander).
Oh, this should be fun.
Maeve: 8/10. Spunky, lovely, on-trend Irish revival that probably won't stay unusual for long.
Keira: 3/10. Nice sound, but very dated.
Gwen: 5/10. Gwen is a familiar...
I absolutely love Sage Augustus and River Gabriel.

I don't think anyone's mentioned:
Roma or Romy

Imagining that none of these names are popular...I love most of them. Ha!
Sophia: My sister's name is Sophie, and I absolutely adore it. I would love to use Sophia to honor her, but alas, it's way...

I have two top girls' names that cancel each other out: Eloise Lily and Iris Cordelia. If I used Iris first, the sibset would be:

I love Arden! It's a name that definitely doesn't doesn't get enough love. Arden and Lucia are a beautiful pair.
Romy or Roma Hudson
This summer I'm babysitting a very feisty and completely wonderful 3-year old who lives with her artsy upper-class family in a famously chic and gentrified New York neighborhood. I remain drop-jawed...

Limiting myself to a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 10...
A: Alice, Anna, Anastasia, Antigone, Augusta (of course), Aster, Arabella, Aurelia
B: Belle, Bonnie, Belphoebe, Bridget, Briony,...
