I've done ten favorite and only five least favorite, as although I don't like all the names, there were only five that I really don't like.

Overall, these are fantastic names! I picked 11 favorites on accident, and I can't think of one to eliminate...I can see why you are having trouble narrowing it down! Here are my lists:
Alice- lovely and classic; a little black dress name
Beatrice- love the meaning ("she who brings happiness") and potential for cute nn "Bea"
Carys- sounds soft and romantic
Clara- so sweet and timeless
Emmeline- I've always loved Emma and Emily, but they are so popular. Emmeline is a gorgeous alternative.
Fiona- such a happy and spunky name
Josephine- one of my favorites! Reminds me of the book Little Women
Louisa- so underused, but so beautiful
Rosalind- love the way it sounds and the Shakespearean connection; my favorite variation of Rose
Rose- but you can't go wrong with simple Rose either!
Thalia- very pretty
Agatha- a clunky, old lady name that would be hard for a little girl to wear, IMO
Gweneirya- I much prefer Gwendolen or Gwyneth
Honora- not a fan of this virtue name
Sybil- don't like the way it sounds, not very feminine
Iona- I just hear "I own a"

Adelaide - Classic. Can't really go wrong.
Aurelia - I've loved this for a long time. It has such a gorgeous flow.
Ava - Popular, but still beautiful
Carys - I would probably prefer this as a middle name. Not sure it could carry as a first name on it's own, but I love it.
Ceridwen - Unique, but not crazy
Eleanor - Classic. Again, can't go wrong. Lots of great nicknames as well.
Elowen - Another one I think would be better as a middle, but one of my favorites
Emmeline - Another classic one with great nicknames
Gemma - Such a pretty name
Genevieve - It's quite a mouthful, but I just think it's so beautiful.
Grace - Goes with so many other names.
Imogen - Another unique, but not crazy one.
Isobel - Nice variation of the traditional, popular spelling
Lucy - Cute, classic.
Maeve - It's such a soft sounding name.
Naomi - A more recent favorite of mine after not liking it for the longest time. I think it's so sweet now.
Thalia - Pretty. I imagine a very cute little one with this name
Willow - Earthy, not as common as others.
Agatha - I just find it very clunky, and has such an old lady connotation to it.
Clara - I just can't get past thinking it's the name of a cow
Clementine - I've never liked this name for some reason. I'm not sure why, it's just never sounded nice to me.
Daphne - Also never been a fan of this. I think it sounds a little stuck up.
Fiona - Bad connotations with this name for me. Don't like the sound.
Una - This sounds more like a noise, not a name.
Yvonne - I associate this with like...upper class, private school kids. Not a fan.Top 10 Girls -- Ella ~ Haven ~ Jovie ~ Natalie ~ Lucia ~ Aubrey ~ Willa ~ Tais ~ Auden ~ Hannahi
