    I would keep:

    Jemima
    Amelia (bit over-popular, but still I like it)
    Iris
    Cecilia
    Agnes
    Seraphine/a
    Greta/Margaret
    Beatrix
    Madeleine*

    I don't like Tempest because I wouldn't want to name a daughter after a storm, I find Tara a bit boring, Tessla sounds like the inventor, and then I find some of the spellings of a few of those names overly complicated (double letters and such). But, love those names that I left on the list above!!! All classic, mostly not over-used, and with a strength and beauty inherent to them!

    Lana - Uhmmm... just makes me think of a snobby girl, sorry!
    Tessla - I like Tess or Tessa but not really into Tessla, it sounds made up, even if it isn't
    Tempest - I like some words as names but not this one
    Romilly - Hmmm.. this name isn't me, but it has the potential to grow on me

    Jemima- I never liked this because it reminds me of Aunt Jemima's maple syrup that you put on pancakes.
    Ophelia- Lately, I have been liking this. Not for my child, but overall it is a cute name.
    Zosia- I have noooo idea how to pronounce this. It could be interesting, but realize that your child will be faced with,"sorry, how do you say your name?" her whole life.
    Estella- I loved this when I was a little girl, and I sort of grew out of it. I still think the name is rarely used but not weird.
    Eilidh- Yeah I don't know how to say this. Interesting though.
    Amelia- Cute name. I have always sort of liked this.
    Ottilie- I see this on nameberry but I never knew how to pronounce it.
    Iris- Old fashioned and definitely not my style but cute. I can see this mostly as a middle name.
    Cecilia- I never liked this, too old fashioned.
    Mae/May- I always liked Mae/May. I thought it was cute from the first time I heard it.
    Agnes- Never liked it. St. Agnes was rivals of my elementary school in sports. (I went to Catholic School)
    Seraphine/a- I have loved Seraphina from the first time I saw it. I don't know why, but I just think it is absolutely gorgeous and elegant.
    Greta/Margaret- Too plain.
    Beatrix- Never liked it.
    Lana- Obsessed. My guily pleasure Lana. Name your daughter this please haha I just love it.
    Arabella- Another guilty pleasure. Wow, I may name my daughter Lana Arabella now. Thank you very much.
    Tara*- Never liked it, too plain.
    Tessla*- This reminds me of geometry class learning about tessalations. Sorry if I ruined it.
    Delphine*- Nahhh, I never liked it.
    Madeleine*- Cute little girl's name.
    Tempest*- This is one of those non-names for me. I never could see anyone with this name.
    Romilly*- It's okay. I'm pretty neutral with it.
    Girls: Blair, Lucia, Aria, Luna
    Boys: Xander, Rafael, Cato, Isaiah

    I'd take out:

    Eilidh - unless you are living in Ireland, it's just not worth the trouble
    Amelia - Amelia bores the hell out of me. It always has. I can't explain why.
    Cecilia - There is something profoundly fussy and prissy-sounding about this name. I think it's the s sounds combined with the "lya" sound.
    Mae/May - boring
    Lana - I think it looks incomplete. I like Lana, but I think I like it better as short for something.
    Arabella - To me, this is a way to sneak in a -bella without using the ultra-popular Isabella. So to me it's kind of cheating. LOL
    Tara* - dated and unappealing
    Tessla* - As Tesla, I think, hm, ok, it's a bad 80s rock band but it's also Nikola, so maaaybe. As Tessla, it's like a Tessa/Tesla hybrid of wrongness
    Madeleine* - it's been done to death
    Tempest* - it comes off down-market to me

    The rest I love.
