Agatha - it's okay, best of the choices given
Bridget - pretty name, I've always liked this name
Cate - it was between this and Cordelia. I love Kate, so I guess this was the next closest option
Dorothy - i like this name, even though I think it may be a bit dated.
Edith - I like this only b/c I can call her 'Edie'
Freida - again, best of the choices given. I much prefer Fiona and Felicity
Gena - I don't really like this name, but it's the pest of the options given. Gina would be an improvement though.
Hana - again, best option of the choices. I like Hannah, so I figure this was close.
Ingrid - again, best option of the choices. I really just don't like any of the other choices. Isla and Imogen are okay 'I' names.
Jae - again, best option of the choices, the others were worse.
Keely - again, best option of the choices. I have a little cousin with this name, it's okay, not great.
Lorraine - I actually like this name. Not sure I'd give it to a child, but I like it enough.
Maeve - I don't love this name, but I think it's okay.
Nara - again, best option of the choices. I prefer Nora.
Ophelia - I like this name.
Penelope - I love this name. This was tough for me, because I love Paloma too.
Ramona - love this name too.
Sakura - again, best option of the choices.
Theodora - again, best option of the choices. It's an okay name.
Vivian - it's okay, not my favorite.
Waverly - an okay name, not great
Xanthe - again, best option of the choices.
Yara - again, best option of the choices.
Zaira - again, best option of the choices. I like Zelda and Zara.Favorite girl names of the moment: Cecilia, Eleanor, Amelia, Violet, Charlotte, and Ramona

Agatha - would prefer Agnes, but it's the best of the A's you have.
Bernadette - have always loved this, especially for its -ette ending.
Cordelia - it's been growing on me lately. Christiana came as a close second, but I feel like it's guilding the lily of Christina.
Dorothy - classic with cute nns
Edith - I like -th names, but "ed" is sort of masculine
Frances - better than the other f's. It's solid and classic (and medieval)
Gena - the only g I didn't look at and go, "What?" (and sounds pretty besides)
Hana - love Hannah, but she will spend her life explaining she is h-a-n-a
Ingrid - better than the other i's, and I suppose I like the "ing" sound. Looks like a Scandinavian princess.
Jae - would prefer Mae; I'm not a big gender-bender, and Jay is so heavily masculine
Keely - would make me want to "keel" over, but it sounds better than being "keen" on something
Laramae - pretty combination of Mae I've never heard before
Maeve - as I've shown, I love Mae names, and I like Irish names as well. Bonus: it's pronouncible
Noirin - why not Noreen? (as I think this is pronounced - of course now you have me in Irish mode) Would produce less pronounciation issues.
Odessa - a nice-sounding place name that is fresh yet solid
Penelope - would love to see a little Penny
Ramona - because it sounds like a legit name; and it's childish as well as serious
Sareen - I do love the -een sound, even if this doesn't look like a legit name.
Theodora - because it's more solid and feminine than your other choices. Would prefer Theresa.
Vienna - beautiful sounding feminine place-name
Wren - although I'm iffy on it; it being a word. Winifred is a close second.
[Don't like either X name]
Yadira - although it sounds like, "Ya dear," it's better than the other options
Zarina - although it is a title for an overthrown russian empress...it sounds prettyProud author of Kissimmee, Orlando, Mary, Adam, Mississippi, Micah, Georgette, Evelyn, and so many many more

Bold=LOVE Italics=Don't really like
Arden- I really like this name, vintage-y but not senior citizen-sounding.
Bridget- Don't love any of the B names, but Bridget is simple and sweet, so why not?
Cordelia- Beautifully royal sounding. I like Delia.
Devany- Not sure how it's pronounced, but it looks cool.
Eden- An all-around solid name, and Edie is cute.
Frances- Vintage and not too girly. Frannie could go either way as a nn--ugly or cute? Only real downside would be confusion with Francis.
Giulia- Don't love it, but it has a nice Italian flair.
Hana- Cute, but it would age well as well. Japanese-sounding. In general, a nice name.
Ingrid- Pretty, but slightly grandma-y.
Jae- Not a big fan.
Keely- I actually really like this name (to my surprise!). It's really cute, even though it's a bit nicknamey.
Lelia- Not my style, but it sounds pretty.
Maeve- I love this name, but it makes me think of a very shy girl I know with this name. I can't think of this name on anyone else.
Nara- Simple. Would it be NAH-ruh or NAIR-uh? I prefer the former.
Ophelia- I love this name a lot. It's very Shakespearean.
Penelope- Love. Sounds smart and fun at the same time. nn- Penny, Ella, Nelly, etc.
Ramona- LOVE this name. Simple, sweet, and humble.
Sakura- Don't love but it reminds me of Japan.
Theron- Okay. Reminds me of Charlize Theron.
Viola- Smart, Shakespearean, and pretty all at the same time!
Wren- I love this name but I can't see it on an adult.
Yara- I don't love it but I like names that end in -ara.
Zaira- Pretty, and not too wild for a Z name.♪~genevieve~♪

I'll bold the ones I actually really like..
Drea - I like it as a nn for Andrea. Only really picked this because I really didn't like the others.
Freya - Don't like this name at all, but I disliked the others more.
Giulia - But I prefer Julia.
Hana - I saw someone mention this one and really liked it.. I just think it would get confused with Hannah a lot.
Jessenia - I picked this because the others were... I dunno. But I also have a friend named Senia and like her name a lot.
Nadira - None actually but this seems the prettiest.
Taryn - None actually...
Yessenia - Same reason as above. I know of a Yesenia, I prefer that spelling (and according to spell check it's right! Haha).
TBH most of them are a little too out there for me though.Top 10 girl's names: Serena * Audrey * Sienna * Bridget * Lucy * Hazel * Cordelia * Josephine * Claire * Alice
Top 10 boy's names: Elliott * Callum * Theodore * Emmett * Nolan * Ian * Blake * Brennan * Adrian * Everett
