What do you think of these girl names? Please rank them or narrow them down. Thanks so much! Also, most of the i's are long e sounds.

They're all lovely, but I would narrow it down to Eleni and Coralie, personally. I love the literary Cora, and Coralie is so vintage and charming. I love it. And Eleni... somehow, it's not my style at all, but I've fallen so hard for it. I love the quirky, spunky Leni as a nn, the lithe, friendly Eleni as a whole, and the image of Greece and smiling, chattering children with coal-black eyes and glowing dark hair. I don't know, there's just something about Eleni that I adore.
Juliana would be my back-up for you, I really love it, but not as much as Eleni and Coralie. I like Lena and Adelaide a lot, too, but I think people would instinctively say Lena as LEE-nah or LAY-nah, from what I've heard Lehna is a legitimate pronunciation but I hardly ever see it/hear it/come across it. I think Eleni nn Lena would be sweet, too.

Alina -attractive but seems more a hodgepodge of sounds than a name. Not my favorite.
Marina - nice one, I'd keep this.
Petra - too clunky for my taste, I'd let it go.
Juliana - nice one, I'd keep this.
Seraphina - pretty but too trendy and frilly IMO.
Natalie - classic, I like it and also Natalia.
Chrysanthi - appealing but too much. Crisanta is better or let it go.
Philippa - intriguing name that I think will be very much a 2012 bubble. I'd let it go.
Theoni - I find this interesting but think the spelling Theone looks better, or Leonie.
Mariana - nice name, keep it.
Marena - Marina spelling is better.
Eleni - on the fence about this one.
Lena (Leh-na) - Like it but think it is better as a nn. Elena nn Leni.
Angel - it's OK but I like some of your others more. Angelina, Angelica, Angela?
Zoey -I like it but prefer the Zoe spelling.
Adelaide - like it
Alika - don't know this name
Maritsa - like it but like your other Mari- names more
Marcia -too dated
Coralie - pretty!
Koralia - Coralie is better
Evathia - Evanthe is preferable.
Keep: Marina, Juliana, Natalie, Mariana, and Coralie is my advice and maybe consider Elena.
