Penelope- DITCH. This has been getting popular, and I'm a tad tired of it.
Violet- KEEP. Classic and pretty
Nora-KEEP. Underused, and so pretty.
Romilly- KEEP. Love it as a way to Romy or Milly
Kathryn - DITCH. Prefer the Catherine/Katherine spelling
Pippa - DITCH. It's better as a nickname for Phillipa.
Hazel- KEEP. Pretty.
Agnes- KEEP. Love it! So pretty and underused.
Juniper- DITCH. NMS, prefer Juno or June
Adelaide -KEEP. The only downside is the nickname Addy.
Felicity - ON THE FENCE. It's not my style, but it's still pretty...
Elodie - DITCH. Don't like this or Melody
Milo- KEEP. Cute
Asher- KEEP. Also cute, and I love the nn Ash
Rowan- DITCH. I see this as a girls name for some reason
August- DITCH. While I adore the nn Gus, my brother says he wants to name his daughter August, so I see it as a girls name
Edmund - KEEP. So nice compared to the overused Edward.
Oliver- KEEP. Love it, despite the popularity
Clement- DITCH. NMS
Rupert- KEEP. I'm surprised that I like it.
Arthur- KEEP. Though getting popular, it's so handsome

Clove - at first, I think of "garlic clove", but I think it could make a nice name if I heard it enough, or had a nice middle name to go with it.
Ellisaria - A bit vowel heavy...
Faraday - I can only see it as a surname; very hard for me to picture it as a first name. Even so, it seems more masculine to me.
Hartlee - a bit surnamey, but this particular spelling makes it seem more like a given name instead.
Nissa - Actually, it has a nice look to it, even if it sound kind of hissy when said aloud.
Paisley - eh... too cutesy for me.
Prisma - Ah, kind of mysterious and somewhat graceful sounding. Could be a keeper.
Sable - I immediately think of one of two things: the professional (female) wrestler, or the car Mercury Sable. I can see the appeal though; I like how it sounds similar to Sibyl.
Saraliese - eh... I'm just not a fan of it.
Zaina - how is this pronounced? I like the way it is written out, but I am curious.
Bram - simple, kind of quaint, I kind of like it.
Colby - has a "country western" feel to it, without going overboard.
Dresden - I like it, but can't really see it being used as name on a person. Well, maybe a middle name.
Errol - very dashing, very Errol Flynn. I mean that in a good way =)
Griffith - strong, noble, still surnamey... but not too much so.
Kincaid - like the painter? A nice artistic name.
Lorcan - for some reason it kind of sounds like a marine mammal to me, like a dolphin. Meh, it's okay I guess.
Rhoads - I think this is the spelling used for the surname of the Bundy's neighbors from Married With Children.
Thane - sounds a bit... sputtery? Like Sylvester (from Looney Tunes) trying to say Zane.
Trennan - nice earthy feel to it.

Lilith - I really like the sound of Lilith, I'm just wary of the connestions it has with hell and Demons.
Dahlia - lovely name, and not very common
Vera - I like this, it's just NMS
Terra - I quite like this, and my husband has actually mentioned this a couple of times as a name he likes
Deirdre - OK, slightly prefer Deirdra
Maxine - feels a little too masculine for my liking
Alana - OK, just feels a little 80's/ordinary to me
Sunniva - is this pronounced Soon-ee-va? If so, I don't think I like the sound of it.
Cassandra - pretty, classic name
Giana - not a huge fan, just looks a little masculine to me for some reason
Lucero - same as Giana
Paloma - Love Paloma! One of my personal favourites
Fatima - never really seen the appeal of ths name
Lila (lee-lah) - love this! I usually say Lye-La, but either is lovely
Eilonwy (el-lon-wee) - not sure, but the more I hear it/see it the more it grows on me
Cyril - too old man for my liking
Conrad - love this, classical and strong
Orion - also love this, also a strong name, but also slightly mystical feel
Elias - OK, really like the nickname Eli
Andre - not a fan
Victor - really like, great meaning too
Rohan - not a afan, just because I've known a few that weren't all that nice and they were usually on the older side
Donovan - want to like it, but just don't quite...
Rory - great name.
Graham - again, most of the Grahams I know are from my fathers generation, so feels a little old for me. Could be due for a comeback though
Lucian - not a fan, makes me think of Lucius Malfor from Harry Potter
Rowan - much prefer this to Rohan. I know it's weird that I like this one but not the other
Cassidy - think of it as more of a girls name
Jericho - very biblical feeling. great if that's the feel you're after.
Alexis - also think of this a a girls name, would prefer Alex or Alexei for a boy myself.
