Opinions on a Few Names -- Please be Honest!
I'd like some honest opinions on these names! I don't know how well they work or what the general public thinks of them but I thought I'd run it by you berries.
A few combinations I like:
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Paloma - pretty Spanish name with a great meaning "dove"
Keturah - an underused Biblical gem.
Magdalen - Another Biblical name which is less common than Madeline/Madelyn.
Ola - A Scandinavian name that reminds me of the Spanish word for hello !Hola!
Camille - Soft, feminine and lovely.
Harper - Harsh sounding and trendy
Stella - A vintage name with spunk and sass
Ocean - better on a boy. Oceana or the French Océane is ok for a girl.
Verity - I love this word name that means "truth". It sparkles!
Snow - I like it better in the middle spot
Lux - A brand of soap better in the middle.
Calla - A gorgeous flower name and it's not too common
Verbena - This nature name is ok but I prefer Calla
A few combinations I like:
Paloma Camille - Love
Magdalen Lux - back-to-back l's. What about Magdalen Snow?
Harper Snow - Ok
Verbena Ocean - This combo flows well but it's too wordy.
Calla Snow - This sounds lovely but it's heavy on the word names.
Verity Ocean - Sounds nice but it's too wordy. I think one word name per combo is enough.
Keturah Harper - too much "er/ur"
Verbena Lux - OKAll the best,

I've bolded the ones I particularly like. (PS - when it comes to honesty, I can be a bit brutal...I just type what first comes to mind)
Paloma - sounds like a middle-aged lady, who goes by Pam, standing by some palm trees
Keturah - sounds ghetto
Magdalen - Magdalena makes it sound less like a place and more like a name
Ola - Ooh la la!
Camille - part Vanille, part Camilla, all French until you shorten it to Cami, making it adorable
Harper - I will forever harp on how this is not my favorite name, despite the Harper Lee connection
Stella - not so stellar to me; feels a bit showy
Ocean - Atlantic or Pacific?
Verity - apprently this gets mispronounced as Variety (especially Southern accent I could see). Would prefer Vera or Veronica, but this is still very pretty.
Snow - *shivers*
Lux - good lucks!
Calla - Wanted a Callie but didn't know how to get it
Verbena - Verbally, not very pretty
For these I'm focusing on flow, since almost all of your names I dislike:
Paloma Camille - a bit heavy on the "m" and "l", but at least they're both names
Magdalen Lux - I'm a fan of one-syllable middle names, so this flows nicely
Harper Snow - Two word names in one...is a little much, I feel
Verbena Ocean - Something's putting me off...maybe the "n"?
Calla Snow - callus no is another way to prnounce this
Verity Ocean - see Harper Snow, but this one is much, much prettier. So much so that I like it.
Keturah Harper - Harper starts with the same sound as Keturah, making them smush together
Verbena Lux - better than Verbena Ocean, but I prefer Magdelen LuxProud author of Kissimmee, Orlando, Mary, Adam, Mississippi, Micah, Georgette, Evelyn, Diane, Millicent, Maybeline, Prudence, Margo, Jade, and so many many more
