    I prefer Ravenna, but I like Raven. The nature-y but not cute feel is really nice. Kestrel and Raven have a very different feel to me than Lark and Wren. I don't like the thing where boy nature names...

    I much prefer Emily to Emma.

    Emma feels over-sweet to me, like icing roses. Emily is more attractive to me, a stronger sound, less meek. Emma and Ava don't do it for me. Emily and Eliza do.

    I quite like Roxana. I like names that are feminine in the sense they aren't boys names, but that are tailored and have some hard sounds in them and a bit of grit.

    Margaret, Marguerite

    I like Theokleia?

    I like Theodora much more than I like Theadora. I'd never use Theadora, personally. But I like Theo or Teddy as nicknames, not Thea, which probably helps.

    Dorothea could be...

    I think Dorothy has better flow with Magenta, but I prefer Dorothea/Theodora as names. It's just the -a ending isn't ideal with an -a middle.

    Sarai is sa-RYE, with the emphasis on the second syllable. The second syllable is like eye/my/sky, a long i sound.

    I would spell the name Schuyler, not Skyler, but it works fine on a boy. Ronan is a boy's name.

    I wouldn't use Addison or Eden on anyone, boy or girl, just because I think they're ugly. But lots...
