    Personally I'd cut the following:

    Zosia - ZO-sha? ZOZ-ia? zo-SEE-uh?
    Agnes - Aggie is cute, but Agnes is still 'clunky old lady' to me
    Lana - Looks a bit plain
    Tessla - I think of Nikola Tesla straight away- X rays, electricity, radio etc. Not really a name IMO.
    Tempest - I just don't like. Perhaps it's the pest ending or it's foul-weather meaning.

    All the others are lovely
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon

    Jemima - love it! I think it's really pretty and seems like a name that should be more popular than what it probably is. Also I think it wins the nickname game with Jem and Mina being two adorable options.
    Ophelia - I've always loved this name for other people. It's just not something I would see myself using, but I love seeing it on other people's lists. I just came across Ophelie today and I absolutely adore it. I may be adding that one to my list soon.
    Zosia - I'm not quite sure how to pronounce this? I'm assuming like the actress. It's kind of pretty. Not my style. I like Jemima a lot more.
    Estella - not a fan of this name.
    Eilidh - pretty sounding, but I think everyone this child ever meets with have to deal with spelling her name and saying it a few times. But it is really pretty.
    Amelia - love this! So pretty and classic.
    Ottilie - I've never heard of this name before and then suddenly I'm seeing it everywhere. I don't get the appeal.
    Iris - not my style, but I love this for other people. I think it makes a gorgeous middle name
    Cecilia - A little too old lady sounding for my taste...I prefer the similar sounding Amelia.
    Mae/May - I adore this in combos with three middle names. This really seems to work wonderfully as the middle name.
    Agnes - not my style at all
    Seraphine/a - love both! For which I like better, well it really depends on the combo. Lana Serephine flows better than Lana Seraphina and Seraphina Tempest flows better than Seraphine Tempest (imo)
    Greta/Margaret - dislike Greta a lot and Margaret has grown on me since I've fallen in love with Margaery
    Beatrix - not my style, but love it on other people's lists
    Lana - pretty old-Hollywood feel to it
    Arabella - love! Works great as a fn and a mn
    Tara - not a fan at all
    Tessla - not a fan, but I love Tessa
    Delphine - LOVE! Very pretty as a mn
    Madeleine - adore it!
    Tempest - I acutally really like this
    Romilly - and surprisingly I like this as well

    My favorites: Jemima, Amelia, Seraphine/a, Beatrix, Tempest

    Ah, I should have said, Zosia is ZO-shah.
    Zo rhyming with go.

    I would keep...

    Jemima
    Estella
    Iris
    Cecilia
    Greta
    Beatrix
    Madeleine

    Middle Names Only

    Arabella
    Margaret
    Ophelia
    Amelia - A lovely name but being No# 1 where I live would bother me.
    Eilidh
    Ottilie
    Mae
    Agnes
    Seraphine
    Delphine
    Tempest
    Romilly


    I would eliminate...

    Zosia - this is very hard to say for non-Polish people. "ZAW-shah" wouldn't be intuitive for most English speakers.
    Lana - The old Hollywood glamour has lost its sparkle I'm afraid.
    Tara - I like the Irish historical connection but I knew an irritating girl with this name so I don't like it very much.
    Tessla - I've seen Tesla but not spelled this way


    Combo Suggestions

    Estella Mae (although I love Estella Pearl in your signature!
    Iris Margaret
    Cecilia Tempest
    Jemima Eilidh (I love your combo of Jemima Celeste too).
    Greta Delphine
    Beatrix Eilidh
    All the best,
    Mischa.
