Midnight - Might make a cool middle name, but as a first name, its a little too out there.
Belladonna - Seconding the prima donna comment, as it was also my first thought.
Bellamy - Love, love! One of my favorites; it's also in my top ten list.
Amabel - I prefer Mabel, I find it sweetly simple.
September - Nothing about the name September appeals to me, while the month can be a pretty time, there's other names to reflect that better than September.
Snow - Cool middle name choice, but I don't think it would work as a first name.
Thorfinna - This doesn't appeal to me, I like Thora and Finna better.
Coraline - I prefer Corliss or Coralie more. I've never been a fan of -line endings (sound, not spelling).
Eternity - Cheesy was my first impression. It could, possibly, maybe be pulled off in the middle, but it would take a strong kid to do so.
Winter - Okayish, but not for me.
Remember - Cheesy. I don't like it for a first or middle name.
Primrose - Cute! Might be a little too Hunger Games right now, but it's a pretty name nevertheless.
Acacia - Cute! Very pretty sound.~ Catholic. College. Communicative Disorders. ~~(updated 9/24/15)

Coraline - love! extremely usable imo
Bellamy - pretty, different but it's many nn's make it very accessible.
Winter -nice, usable though definitely unique
Amabel - pretty, looks made up and will be forever mistaken for Anabel but it is a very lovely name
Acacia - different but a nice sound, nice nn potential
Primrose - meh, not really my cup of tea. I know it's getting popular but for me it's fully in mn spot territory
Belladonna - pretty enough but the poison would completely put me off
Snow - meh, it's too literal for me, interesting mn
Thorfinna - this one is just very unfamiliar and would be hard to wear in many countries, especially with the resurgence in knowledge of Thor
September - too literal for me again--like naming a kid "Month" or "Saturday"
Remember - this one has a very tacky vibe to me, I can see the nn potential, but I prefer Ember or Reverie. Also, I personally wouldn't want the word "member" in my name.
Eternity - again very literal, and a tad tacky. I'd prefer something like Ever
Midnight - rather a negative connotation for me and not really all that pretty in terms of nn's and such, I don't like itTop Names: Benedict Zeal & Noelle Geneva

Midnight - Not a fan for an actual child, but this could be a cool name for a story character.
Belladonna - I think this is pretty, but seeing as this is also a plant also known as Deadly Nightshade, it seems a bith morbid unless you are naming a vampire.
Bellamy - Kinda goes along with the falling-off-trend of Bella names. Okay, I guess, but doesn't thrill me.
Amabel - This one is cute. And I love a good historical nod.
September - Some month names I can get behind. April, May, June, August are ubiquitous. January is growing on me. July is doable, even March as a middle. I just can't get behind September, October, November, December because of the -ber ending. And February is just a no.
Snow - Maybe for a middle. A little too fairytale for a first.
Thorfinna - I'm not really sure how to respond to this one. It just looks a little made up and silly to me, sorry.
Coraline - Of course, my first thought is the book turned movie. I like it, but still prefer Caroline.
Eternity - Just, no.
Winter - I actually really like this for a middle, but not sure I can get behind it as a first.
Remember - I'm not sure how well this would work in today's world, but it is a common Puritan virtue name, and a lot of those are popular now or up and coming, so it could work. My favorite virtue names are Felicity, Verity and Temperance.
Primrose - Another obvious reference: The Hunger Games. That said, I do like it. I love almost any name with Rose in it and this one is a quirky and unusual take on Rose.
Acacia - I do like a lot of flower names, but because I have the hardest time pronouncing this one, I've just never been able to get behind it.Ladies

Midnight - not bad in the middle spot, but definite no as a first name
Belladonna - Not a fan. Sound a little stripperish. Try Annabella instead.
Bellamy - I adore this name! It's in my top ten, so I say YES
Amabel - this just looks weird. I still don't know how it's pronounced, and it sounds very babyish. I can't picture it aging well.
September - as far as month names, it's not the best, but the nn Ember is a nice bonus. But September is my least favorite month, so I'm not a fan.
Snow - I like this. It's a little out there, but it evokes such lovely pictured of glistening landscapes. If not, Winter is a great related name.
Thorfinna - I really dislike this. It looks masculine and made up. Sorry!
Coraline - I really like Coraline, though I'm not a huge lover of Cora. But this is such a great alternative to Caroline.
Eternity - I can't immediately see any good nn for this, which I normally look for in unique picks like this. It just doesn't sound like a name.
Winter - I adore Winter. It deserves its spotlight as a first name.
Remember - I prefer Memory. Remember is so frequently used as a word that it sounds wrong as a name.
Primrose - I never liked Primrose. I guess in retrospect its a perfectly decent name, but it's so...Hunger Games.
Acacia - I picture many pronunciation issues with this. And the trees (thorn acacia) aren't particularly attractive. how about Acadia?~*~**~*Larissa~*~**~*
