Augusta: No...it just sounds like an ugly name to me & too masculine like Augustus.
Jane: Plain jane. Overused.
Louisa: Too old fashioned for my taste
Georgia: I like
Nell: Never heard of this but has potential
Sylvia: too old fashioned
Annemet: Why not just spell it Anne-May? I would mispronounce that for sure
Hadley: LOVE. My favorite on your list.
Aoife: Be prepared for mispronunciations. I pronounce this as Effie, right? So why not spell it like that?
Calhoun (Cal): I like Callum as a better way to get Cal but Calhoun is nice too
Harry: Prefer Henry
Eaton: I like Easton as an alternative
Red: How about Reid instead? or Reed?

Augusta - Oh, I love this! It's in my top ten too, I just find it so gorgeous and sturdy (rather than frilly, which I hate).
Jane - Love. Can't go wrong with Jane.
Louisa - I like it, but not as much as Augusta or Jane.
Georgia - I like it.
Nell - Beautiful but I've always felt it needed a longer name. Penelope have any appeal for you?
Sylvia - Pretty
Annemet (pronounced Anne-may) - I like the sound but not the spelling. I think I would prefer Anna Mae, had a neighbor named this. But either way it sounds like the word anime.
Hadley - Don't like it with your other girls' names. Everything else is beautiful and classic whereas Hadley is just a trendy mess.
Aoife - I've never EVER seen the appeal for this name, I think it has the most unattractive sound. Eva would be nicer and less difficult for Americans to spell/pronounce (if you live in the US like I do).
Jack - Love, but so popular.
Arthur - LOVE
Calhoun (Cal) - Oh gosh I love Calhoun so much. So dashing.
Harry - Hmm, I just think Harry Potter or the word Hairy. How about Henry?
David - Nice, one of my favorite classic boys' names.
Eaton - Eaten what? Prefer Easton slightly, but this falls in the same category as Hadley for me.
Red - Love as a nickname, but would prefer it with full name Redmond or Frederick NN Red.
♥ August, Henry, Dodge, Revere
♥ Mabel, Lilith, Leona, Avis, Zelda

I'm so confused about Annemet - where does that come from? I don't like it, anyway - it will be a nightmare for mispronunciation goes, and it sounds like anime.
Aoife - okay, I'm going to say it and hope I don't offend anyone; visually, it reminds me of 'oaf', and I don't think it works outside Ireland.
Hadley - sounds like a bunch of rocks banging around in a sack. My (no doubt unpopular) opinion, sorry.
The rest are quite lovely - I could see Georgia, Louisa and Nell being sisters! (Really love Nell).

Augusta - It's ok. I prefer August on a boy.
Jane - I think it's cute!
Louisa - It's ok.
Georgia - Not bad.
Nell - Too short.. I feel like this should be a nn for something.
Sylvia - NMS.
Annemet (pronounced Anne-may) - Too confusing.
Hadley - Meh.
Aoife - Nice, but you may get pronunciation problems if you're in the US.
Jack - Not bad.
Arthur - NMS.
Calhoun (Cal) - Prefer other "Cal" names - Callum, Calvin, Caleb.
Harry - Don't like.
David - I like it but I'm biased since it's my dad's name.
Eaton - Don't like.. prefer Easton.
Red - Don't like. Maybe as a nn.Top 10 girl's names: Serena * Audrey * Sienna * Bridget * Lucy * Hazel * Cordelia * Josephine * Claire * Alice

Augusta - In theory I really like this name, I just think in practice it could be a bit too much.
Jane - It's a sweet name, but people always think my name is Jane (it's Jade) when I introduce myself so I have some hostility.
Louisa - Love love love Louisa!
Georgia - Such a sweet little name that I think ages really well.
Nell - A bit bland for me. Would make a great NN though.
Sylvia - Love this name so much.
Annemet - Um, not a fan. All I hear when I say it is "anime" and the pronunciation/spelling is just asking for issues.
Hadley - A bit masculine for me.
Aoife - Love this name. Could pose the same problems as Annemet, but if you are up for it I'd say go for it!
Jack - It's a nice name and I don't have anything against, but I don't have anything for it either.
Arthur - Love this. And Artie is such an awesome NN.
Calhoun (Cal) - Love this so much! Cal has long been a favorite, but I have never liked Calvin or Caleb much. Calhoun is a great option.
Harry - Love.
David - Love this one too.
Eaton - All I see is "eating"
Red - Would make a great NN, not sure about a full name though. Redmond NN Red? Rooney?

Augusta -- Pretty and elegant! I love it and I prefer the nn Auggie on a girl anyway
Jane -- simple and pretty
Louisa -- I like it!
Georgia -- eh I've never liked it
Nell -- Prefer it as a nn but I do love it
Sylvia -- So pretty! I slightly prefer Sylvana
Annemet (pronounced Anne-may) -- I wouldn't have gotten that pronunciation. I would have tried to say Ahn-eh-met which honestly, i like better than Anne-May.
Hadley -- Never liked
Aoife -- I love it! I don't think a lot of people will understand how to pronounce this or spell it though
Jack -- I've loved this name forever! Handsome and strong
Arthur -- I love the mythology behind this! So handsome
Calhoun (Cal) -- Dislike. I think it has a neat sound, but I don't like it
Harry -- Every name paired with this makes me think someone is Hairy. "Harry Nathaniel...Nathaniel is Hairy?"
David -- bland
Eaton -- Did you mean Easton? Other wise "eaten what?" I really like Easton though!
Red -- meh...
