I see positive aspects to all of them except Arizona and Alaska. The American trend of state-naming babies seems confusing to those of us outside the US. I can't imagine naming my child Ontario or Saskatchewan.
Of note to me: Lennox is my settled upon boy name. DH and I are having an impossible time coming up with a girls name and have started contemplating Lennox whether bebe is a boy OR a girl. Glad to see another person who sees the surname name as possible on a woman.Latest list:
Girl: Lulu, Eden
Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady
Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)

Autumn- I like this, but there's something about it that keeps me from loving it. Maybe it's the lack of easy nicknames? You might also like Auden.
Summer- I prefer Autumn.
Addison- I don't like -son names for girls.
Copeland- this seems very last namey. I really can't picture it as a first for either gender.
Rosaline, Alva,- I'm neutral on these.
Arizona, Alaska, Atlanta- Georgia and Virginia are the only names in this genre I don't mind. These I think are a bit odd.
Mirabelle, Arabella, Cecilia, Eve, Juliet, Calla, Belle, Thea, Aria- I love these.
Clementine- I've never understood this.
Alyssa- A bit dated.
Venessa- also dated, and why an "e"?
Lennox- A bit masculine, though I don't care for it on a boy either.
Anya, Catalina, Sophie- I like these.
Jordan, Savannah, Aviana- These are all quite trendy, but I LOVE Avis.
Nova- I love this, and I love the association with "supernova." Supernovas are often described as the death of a star, but the explosion is what creates all elements, including the ones making up human beings- pretty cool!
Cosette, Eponine- Way too Les Mis, and Eponine was invented by Victor Hugo to be a trashy-sounding name.
Winter, Clover- I want to like these, but they're just too tied to the words and I don't think they'd age well.
Top picks: Avis, Nova, Mirabelle, Cecilia, Calla
Isaac, Rhys, Hudson Finn- I like
Christopher, Connor, Lucas, Jackson, Hayden- I'm neutral on these.
Casper I think is too ghostly, River and Cricket too naturey, and Rebel and Ransom too dangerous to use.
Top picks: Rhys, Isaac, and Finn.

Autumn, Summer, Winter, Clover - Like these a lot. My favorite is Winter.
Mirabelle - Love. So pretty and lovely meaning.
Addison - Not a fan of this on a girl. And names of the Madison/Addison ilk are feeling really overdone.
Copeland/Sutton - To brusque for first names, especially for a girl.
Rosaline - I would like it better if it was Rosalie or Rosalind.
Arizona - LOVE
Arabella, Cecilia, Eve, Juliet, Calla. Savannah - All lovely names.
Alaska, Atlanta, Catalina, Alba - They're okay. I'm neutral.
Alyssa - Pretty.
Venessa - Not a fan.
Belle, Anya, Gwen - Perfectly fine, but not something I'm a fan of necessarily. I like Belle as a middle.
Nova - Not a fan.
Jordan - Don't like it on a girl.
Sophie - LOVE
Clementine - I want to like it, but I associate it with the song, which makes it unusable for me.
Alva, Aviana, Thea - Don't care for any of these.
Lennox - Too masculine
Cosette, Eponine - Love Cosette, can't stand Eponine
Aria - I don't understand the love for this name.
Casper - Love.
Reeve, Finn, Trevor, Connor - Neutral
Rebel, Cricket - No. Just no.
Christopher - One of my favorite names for a boy. Love it so so much.
Avery - LOVE
Lucas, Jackson - Handsome names
Ransom - Love. As a Christian, I attach more meaning to this name than others probably do. Also, it has a dash of cowboy panache, which I really dig.
Isaac, Asa - Both strong names.
Cain - I love the sound, but I would go with Kane, which has a totally different meaning and doesn't have the Cain and Abel baggage.
Hayden - This is a perfectly good name that gets overwhelmed by the Aiden/Jayden epidemic.
Alfie, Harold - Not a fan.
River - Like this one a good bit.
Rhys, Hudson - Love these.Silas ~ Gideon ~ Lincoln ~ Ezekiel ~ Malachi ~ Samuel ~ Ezra ~ Charlie ~ Gabriel ~ Elliott
