Alpine- This is the breed of dairy goats I raise so my intial responce is absolutly not, but then upon realizing I'm weird and most people won't reconize the goat connection but think of the mountains instead I think it would be a cool nature-y type name, it would probaly be best as a middle name though, but Al or Allie would make a good nn if you used it as a first name and the child wanted a more "normal" name
Crescent- pretty cool sounding as a name. my first thought is a crescent moon which is a cool conection
Jedi- too star wars, but if you really like it I would say use it as a nn for Jedidiah or something so the child has something to fall back on if they ever want a more "normal" sounding name. I think most little boys would probaly love the star wars connection though.
Mississippi- for a little girl with the nn Missy this would be pretty cute. Same with Missouri.
Nevada- for a boy or girl? either way it sounds pretty cool
Drake- pretty normal for a boy, I don't see any issues with it
Arizona- nn Ari (air-ee) and Zona are pretty cool for a girl
Alaska- boy or girl? Allie or Lassie would be cool nn for a girl
Valentine- like it. Valentino and Valentina are awesome too and a bit more gender spacific
Jackson- like it
Holiday- best for a girl I think
Alabama- cool, Al and Allie make good nn
Sonnet- like it
Liberty- love it!
Yarrow- like it
Willow- love it!
Venice- Venny is a cute nn
Aspen- boy or girl? like it either way
Shade - can't see it on a child except for maybe as a nn. All I can think of when I hear it is window shades or lamp shades.
Demetrius- I don't see any problems with it, it's a nice old name
Shadow - can't see it on a child, sorry
Archimedes- Archie is an awesome nn
Just wondering, do the state names have any special meaning to you? I noticed you like alot of state names so I thought you might have a connection to each one. If so that would be a great rfeason to use them, if not they're still cool names.~ Elisabeth Odelia "Elsie" ~ Gideon Boone ~
~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~

A lot of your names are place names, and my feeling is that a place name only really makes sense if there is a special significance to that place and that child. (But please, no 'my child was conceived here.' That's SO awkward.) That being said...
Alpine - Fine for a boy
Crescent - not into it.
Jedi - A little too sci-fi for me.
Mississippi - Could be a sweet and different middle for a girl
Nevada - not into it.
Drake - not my style
Arizona - For a girl
Alaska - For a girl
Valentine - I don't like it at all
Jackson - This always reminds me of Michael Jackson. No.
Holiday - Sweet for a girl, as a middle
North - For a boy
Alabama - I Sounds like a far stretch for both boy and girl
Sonnet - I like this one! Middle for a girl
Liberty - I don't like this virtue name, although not all are bad.
Yarrow - Sounds like a mix between Yellow and Arrow. I don't like it.
Willow - Beautiful name.
Venice - For a girl.
Aspen - For a boy.
Shade - I don't like it. It's always in the shadow of something.
Demetrius - Not my style at all.
Shadow - I don't like it. It's either mysterious, or comes off as inferior to something
Archimedes - Wow, not my style.
Some interesting choices!

Your list was fun to read through!
Alpine -- I can't see this as a first name, but it could make a cool middle.
Arizona -- This is very unusual, but I think it is pretty and spunky for a girl.
Valentine -- I have been loving this one lately as a middle name for a girl! Reminds me of the sweet character in the Count of Monte Cristo book.
Jackson -- This one is okay. Much more popular than the rest of your list.
Holiday -- This is cool. Might be a little much as a first name since it is a common word, but as a middle it would be just lovely!
North -- Very strong and handsome.
Sonnet -- So lovely!
Liberty -- This is nms, but quite cool and spunky.
Yarrow -- I don't like this one, but it reminds me of Sorrel which I like a lot!
Willow -- Very nice.
Venice -- Wow, this one is cool! Nice imagery.
Aspen -- Very pretty, although it does have unfortunate syllables
Demetrius -- Love it! But idk if I would be bold enough to use it.
Names I don't like much
Shade - my dad suggested it, when we were talking about Shadow's name.
Shadow - either gender. I recently went to Disneyland, and there was a young girl named Shadow there.
ArchimedesNot expecting, just planning and building lists!
