I don't think any of those names strike me as common/popular at all, except perhaps Charlotte. And maybe Eliza, only because all the "El-" names are so popular, and they all kind of blend together after a while.
I love Tessa! I also love Juliet, Clara and Genevieve.......they are ALL gorgeous! I think they would all be a great choice -- beautiful, classy and recognizable, without feeling trendy or popular. I also don't think you want to go too exotic with a son named James. The names on your list are perfect!

This is a really good list- I've looked through it for hours! It groups popularity by spelling too, so you know the actual popularity!

Remember, it is hard to judge a name's popularity by message boards, especially ones with such different name tastes than the rest of the population.
Genevieve was the name for just 1,356 little girls- or around 0.0706%.
1378 girls were named Tessa, and that name accounts for just 0.0718%.
Just 1,241 little girls were called Eliza, or about 0.0648%.
The romantic Juliet was borne by 1263 girls, or just 0.0658%.
The percentages mean that hypothetically, out of ten thousand little girls born that year, less than a quarter of one girl is named Genevieve, Eliza, Juliet or Tessa.
For Clara, 2055 girls were called that (or 0.1070%). That's about one per every ten thousand.
Even Charlotte isn't as popular as you might believe. While 6365 sounds like a lot of little Charlottes, it's only about .3314%, which means that out of every thousand girls born in 2011, three will be a Charlotte.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai sacha ~ ezra link ~ satoshi rowan ~
