✘ (if I didn't put an explanation, it means I just don't like the sound of it):
Clover: Cute name, but seems tease-worthy.
Copeland: I think Copeland is a very pretty surname and it could grow on me for a boy, but it does not sound feminine at all.
Eponine: This name just sounds hideous.
Jordan: I prefer it for boys.
Lennox: Same exact reason as Copeland.
Nova: It seems over the top, but it could grow on me.
Rosaline: I prefer Rosalind.
Sutton: Should stay a surname.
Venessa: I prefer the spelling Vanessa.
Casper: The association with the ghost is hard to shake away imo. Plus Jasper sounds cuter.
Christopher: It's so overused and I have so many bad assocations with the name.
Cricket: Don't name your son after an ugly insect.
Hayden: Sounds to feminine to me.
Ransom: Asking for trouble and teasing.
Rebel: Same reason as Ransom.

Autumn, Summer and Winter: I'm not a fan of season names.
Alaska, Arizona, Atlanta: I'm not a fan of the name of places being used for names either.
Mirabelle, Belle, Arabella, Eve: I quite like these, Belle being my favourite.
Copeland and Jordan: I think they sound more like boys name although Jordan is unisex.
Rosaline, Juliet, Venessa (Vanessa), Nova, Savannah: I don't mind these names just not my personal style.
Calla and Anya: Although these names aren't my personal taste, I do think they would make pretty names.
Alyssa and Nova: I quite like these although I prefer Alisia to Alyssa.

Here ya go! I bolded my favorites...
Autumn, Summer, Arizona, Alaska, Winter, Clover, Atlanta, Savannah: These season, place, and object names are all a little too literal for me. And being from Atlanta, I find Atlanta especially odd as a girl's name.
Clementine: same as above with the added association with "Oh my darling, Clementine" that would make this name unusable for me
Catalina: Also a place name, but it doesn't bother me as much as the above. I kind of like this one, and it has cute nn potential. "Cat" or "Lina" would be adorable!
Mirabelle, Arabella: Too frilly for my taste, but not bad.
Addison: Very trendy, but I do like the nn "Addy."
Copeland, Sutton: Too masculine
Rosaline: very pretty
Cecilia, Eve, Juliet, Anya: love these!!
Calla: very sweet
Alyssa, Jordan: very 90s
Venessa: Vanessa? Also sounds dated.
Gwen: I like it, but I would use Gwendolyn or Gwyneth as a given name with Gwen as a nn.
Nova: I think of outer space
Sophie: trendy, but cute
Alva: This is a traditionally boy's name, but I guess it could work for a girl
Aviana (Avis): Aviana is okay...Avis is a car rental company
Lennox: Sounds like a stipper name (sorry to be blunt!)
Cosette, Eponine: As stated by a pp, these are strongly tied to the characters in Les Miserables. Do you like Colette instead?
Aria: Game of Thrones! I actually do like this name, and the character on the show is not a bad association.
Alba: not my style
Casper: I want to like this name, but I can't shake the friendly ghost association.
Reeve: It's okay.
Christopher, Isaac: Classics. I've always liked these names.
Finn, Hayden, Jackson: very trendy
Trevor: I've never liked this name for some reason. It also screams 90s kid to me.
Rebel, Ransom: I'm not sure why anyone would ever name a child either of these
Connor: I like it, but don't love it
Avery: Very popular for girls right now
Lucas: A little trendy, but cute. I know an adorable 2-year-old named Lucas right now, so I am maybe a little biased toward liking this name
Cain: not the best association with the Cain and Able story...
Asa: I like this one
Alfie: very British, but cute
Harold: This old man name may not be ready to be revived yet....
River, Cricket: Again with the literal object names. I'm just not a big fan.
Rhys: Like a lot!
Hudson: not too bad
