Hemlock George (ok, maybe not)
Great list! All except for Jasper (top of my list for most annoying name ever) and Wesley. Wesley has a nice history, but it always makes me envision a weak, sickly child, and it sounds too close to...
It's all girl to me!
Hmmm...Isla Annabelle? Isis is great, but not sure I'd be brave enough to use it. Lila sounds kind of old and flowery, but still sweet.

Verity. Sybil looks granny-ish to me, but spelled with a C- it could work.

LOL...Graham and Reid are my parents' original surnames (w/varied spelling). Guess I'm not objective. I thought you might like to consider Quest, as it seems to match your style.
Madeline by far, but I love Josephine in the middle spot. I just find Maeve to be too much of a '70's flashback, and not a pleasant one.

Sorry, my first thought was to wonder what breed of dog it was. I'm sure it's a lovely name, but perhaps in the middle spot?
The states were named for Elizabeth I, 'the Virgin Queen'.
It's kind of a common Midwestern name most popular in the 30's and 40's, when people had lots of kids and too much work to bother much w/elaborate names...I can only see it as A-da.
Love Leon...or Leon's, more precisely. It was my favorite monster-sized greasy cheeseburger and onion ring joint when I was a kid. I think it closed, but long live the name!
Ashley or Brittany

I grew up w/an emotionally immature, whiny mother who constantly complained of sinus infections. Not a good association for a child's name. Stellan?
This is hard, because I so love Alex/Alexander/Alexios/Alexo/etc. and Grant just sounds like granite...a lifeless hunk of rock (though some would equate it w/stability, security, etc.). Any chance...

Scarlett is the only one I'd bother with. She can be fun & adventurous on a child or alluring on an adult. A literary classic w/a great nn in Scout!
Bummer...Frances (nn Francie) Cordelia was the only one I almost liked. The rest sound kind of like uncooperative customer service representatives.
Perhaps Lucrezia, nn Lou or Luca? Or Cordelia Lou, Ophelia Lou, Calista Lou, Allegra Lou, Paloma Lou, Hermione Lou, Calliope Lou, Josie Lou, Halle Lou?
I think it's lovely to pass down family surnames as first names, especially when there's a good nn option. like Ry. And it doesn't matter how others perceive it, if the name is legitimate. However,...
I LOVE Matilda! Margot always makes me think of an annoyed toddler trying to get rid of someone, "Mar GO!"
3. Lucrezia (Luca)
Ava Fleur would be lovely!
