Amabel -- Nice, unique variation to the whole -belle trend.
Artemis -- This name has always struck me as a male name.
Aurelia -- Pretty but reminds me of aureola.

First or middle:
Alma -just old fashioned to me, but I like the meaning.
Artemis - Love, if you're brave enough to use it.
Aurelia - Love it, it's on my list too.
Blythe -I know a lot of people like this name, but it has no substance to me. Better as a middle.
Circe - Nms.
Clementine -Love love love, another on my list.
Clover - I don't see it on a person, for some reason, just on a pet.
Cressida - This name has been really growing on me lately. Possibly b/c of the Hunger Games.
Gwenore - Prefer Guinevere or Gwendolyn, but it's usable I guess.
Elodie - Like a lot.
Elowen - Seems very Tolkien to me. (w/o even knowing if it actually is…)
Euphemia - reminds me of euphemisms...
Evangeline -Love, so gorgeous, but has religious connotations, which could be good or bad.
Frida - meh.
Helena - I like it, but could have pronunciation issues
Honor - starbaby.
Ingrid -very milkmaid.
Isla - Love.
Juniper - LOVE.
Magnolia - Love, another one on my list.
Meliora - Seems very frilly.
Melisande - could have pronunciation issues, another frilly and formal.
Mimosa - like the drink?! The only one that is really unusable to me.
Nova - Like a lot.
Paloma -Like it.
Phaedra - like, not love.
Rosamund - very usable, and underused. Nice!
Seren - pronunciation? Ser-enn or serene?
Silvia - a name that is ready for a comeback, I think.
Soleil - pronunciation issues again, I think.
Sophronia -very formal and frilly.
Soraya -I know someone with this name, so I know it's usable.
Viola -Underrated and lovely.
Willa - Just like Viola, underrated and lovely.
Wisteria - I think people will think of the Desperate Housewives show, at least for awhile.
Wren -Love, love.
Zephyrine - nms.
My favorites: Clementine, Artemis, Elodie, Juniper, Magnolia, Rosamund, Viola and Willa.
Overall, I think your middle name list is more usable than your first name list. But I'm coming from an American perspective, and I don't know where you live.- current loves -
Genevieve - Aurelia - Penelope - Clementine - Matilda - Wilhelmina - Josephine - Cordelia
Max - Frederick - Elliot - Gus - Atticus - Felix - Theodore - Beckett - Calvin
