Clarise - the Clare names have been growing on me recently. Not sure I like this one.
Della - not sure I really like this unless it's a nick name.
Cara - Sweet and cute.
Lea - Like this and the Leah spelling.
Stella - A good MN
Noa(h) - can only see this name on a boy :/
Martha - brilliant classic! My fave on your list.
Matilda - another good one. Like the nn Tilly.
Ellen - lovely, classic.
Loretta - not so keen on this one.
Gwen - prefer it as a nn for Gwendolyn
Meg - I like it, perhaps as a nn for Margaret. Dislike Megan though :/ Can't imagine it as a FN.
Auden - haven't heard of it before and it's not bad
Abilene - don't like this.
Rosemary - can't go wrong with Rose names

Clarise- I like it! Clarissa is my favorite form, but Clarise is my second.
Della- I think, "The farmer in the dell..."
Cara- My middle name is Kara, and I definitely prefer it with a K. I love this name, but not spelled with a C.
Lea- Like it!
Stella- Cute. I think it's much better than Estelle.
Noa(h)- For a girl? Noooo....
Martha- Kinda nice. A little old-sounding.
Matilda- Cute with nn Tillie.
Ellen- Eleanor is a much nicer form.
Loretta- Always liked this name- reminds me of movie stars in black-and-white films.
Gwen- Like it.
Meg- I know someone with this name. She hates it, and I kinda do too. Maggie or Margo are much nicer.
Auden- Interesting. A spin on Audrey (which I absolutely love) and more feminine/less trendy than Aiden.
Abilene- Cute with nn Abby.
Rosemary- Love! Like Rosemarie even more, but Rosemary is lovely as well.| Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
| Emma Berlin | Cressida Lilac | Jessamine Lark | Vivienne Snow | Ireland Eve |

Clarise - It's nice, but I prefer Clara, Claire or Clarissa.
Della - I like this, but feels like it should be a nn for something.
Cara - love it.
Lea - love it.
Stella - love it.
Noa(h) Noa is a legit girls' name (very popular in Israel) that has a separate origin from Noah the boys' name. In the US they are pronounced the same, though. I like Noa for a girl and Noah for a boy.
Martha - it's okay.
Matilda - like it more than I used to.
Ellen - it's okay.
Loretta - okay.
Gwen - nice as nn for Gwendolyn.
Meg - only as nn for Margaret, not on its own.
Auden - I think I'd rather see this on a boy.
Abilene - just reminds me of Abilene, Texas.
Rosemary - love it!Shannon

Clarise: Nice enough, but sounds a little too ballerina for me
Della: Love it on its own, or as a nickname for Adeline or Adele
Cara: Feels dated to me
Lea: Ditto Cara
Stella: Reminds me of a gaudy old lady who sings show tunes in a New Orleans bar
Noa(h): I know Noa is a girl's name, but it still sounds just like Noah... a boy's name
Martha: Love it - I think Martha has been out long enough to sound fresh again
Matilda: Perfect balance of quirky, feminine, and strong
Ellen: I can only think of Ellen DeGeneres
Loretta: Sounds like she goes to high school with Sandra, Linda, and Carol
Gwen: Neutral, don't like but don't hate
Meg: I like it as a stand alone name
Auden: Sounds like a boy's name
Abilene: I feel like she'd constantly be confused with Adeline
