    Here are my favourites from your list:
    Althea
    Mae
    Eliza
    Sylvie

    I don't like names ending in -ine (Rosaline, Emmeline, Evangeline, Adeline).

    I'm fine with the others, except for Felicity (word names ugh).

    Willa -- Not a big fan, but not horrible
    Althea -- I would love to see names like this make a revival!
    Rosaline (pronounced with the -een ending) -- I have never liked the whole Rose family for some reason.
    Emmeline -- Gorgeous! Always surprised this isn't rising faster.
    Daphne -- I know this name is a bit dated, but I have loved it since I was a little girl.
    Felicity -- In my own personal top 5! It's just so sweet and happy!
    Marta -- I feel like she is a mean strict old lady
    Mae -- Bland IMO
    Evangeline -- In my own personal top 10! I just love the pretty flow of this name, and if you are the type that likes them it has some cute nickname possibilities.
    Adeline -- I never cared for this name until about 2 years ago, when I had a dream it was my name. LOL Now I think it is very sweet.
    Chiara -- Really don't care for it.
    Ingrid -- Find it harsh
    Eliza -- I love this, which is odd because my only personal association was a mean old lady. I just think it's spunky and fun, while still classically beautiful.
    Annemarie -- Love
    Sylvie -- It's okay.
    Susannah -- Gorgeously sweet
    Amelie -- I've never known one, but it's a name that I feel like I could really like if I got used to it.
    Louisa -- Has been growing on my lately. Still not sure about it though
    Lila -- Adorable and sweet!

    Rosaline (pronounced with the -een ending) Sort of pretty. Not a big fan, but I do love the name Rosie.

    Marta - Sounds a bit old, but is still nice
    Mae - Beautiful.

    Adeline - Really nice, and I love the nickname Addie.
    Chiara - How do you pronounce this? Chee-air-a?
