Autumn and Summer: I've always preferred Summer over Autumn as a name but I think its because of associations with people I have had in the past.
I just can't get into the -belle names! I don't hate them but I don't love them. I prefer Mirabelle over Arabella (depending on the pronunciation: I prefer the air-a-bella pronunciation). I see Belle as a nickname.
Addison, Copeland and Sutton are just too masculine to me. I usually like unisex names on girls though.
Rosaline is just so pretty and I like that its from Shakespearean literature.
Arizona, Alaska, Atlanta: I like Alaska the best out of the bunch by a long shot, but place names just aren't my style!
Cecilia, Juliet, and Sophie I LOVE, and I would love Eve if it was Eva instead Calla,
Alyssa and Venessa just seem dated. Also, I would spell Vanessa with an 'a'. The 'e' will only cause a hassle throughout life and I've never seen it before.
Anya, Alva, Alviana, Aria and Alba: I just hate them, I'm sorry. However I'm not a fan of 'A' names at all actually.
Catalina is a type of salad dressing and I can't get over it.
Gwen just looks awkward I don't know.
Jordan just seems overused. I feel a know an abundance of Jordan's (both male and female).
Nova: I actually really like Nova and the meaning behind it.
Savannah, Clover and Clementine I just dislike. I couldn't name my child Clementine. Clover is the best of the three.
Thea is just meh, I prefer Theo for boys so it kind of puts it
I absolutely love Lennox for either a boy or a girl.
Winter is one of my guilty pleasure names but I don't know if I'd ever have the guts to use it.
I agree with Eponine sounding like a drug.
I can't love the -ette names because they remind me of nicorette I don't know I can't get it out of my head.
I love Finn, Isaac, Cain (but spelt Kane for less of a negative biblical reference), and Rhys! These four are all on my boys list as well
I hate Casper, Rebel, Ransom, River, Cricket. They all seem like they could be dogs names.
Christopher, Connor and Lucas are okay. They seem to fit in the same category for me, I feel like they're very 90's and slowly becoming dad names.
Trevor is so dated to me!
Avery I feel is so feminine now! I have a cousin Avery who is male and could never have imagined it on a girl. Now, I know so many little girls I find it stranger on a boy. Hayden also seems girly to me, perhaps because of Hayden Panettiere. I would opt for Hudson which I like
I hate Harold but I also hate Harrison, Harry, Harriet etc. (I hate names with the 'hair' sound in it).
I also do not like Asa or Alfie, they just seem so short.
I like Reid over Reeve.
I used to love Jackson now I think it's just okay.

Autumn, Summer: they're both beautiful names, maybe not entirely original but beautiful.
MirabelleArabella, Cecilia Aviana: pretty but a little too frilly for me
Addison: I just think of the disease, sorry
Copeland:don't like too heavy for a girl
Arizona: I love Arizona, makes me think of blue skies and deserts. Plus I know the most beautiful little 2 yr old named Arizona nn Rizzo
Eve: LOVE, it's simple yet feminine and strong
Juliet: pretty, but doesn't really appeal to me, too many strong associations
Alaska, Sutton, Lennox, Alba, Atlanta, Alva, Avis: Eh, don't have a pretty sound
Calla, Alyssa, Venessa, Jordan, Savannah, Sophie, Belle: all feel dated to me or overused
Gwen, Clementine, Thea: All sweet and familiar yet unexpected
Cosette, Anya, Eponine: Too much, pretty names but for me it feels like you're trying too hard
Aria: LOVE maybe a little trendy but I think it has a beautiful sound and connotations
Clover, Winter: Cute
Nova, Catalina: Pretty and exotic-lite
Lucas, Isaac, Christopher: classic names, can't go wrong
Rhys, Reeve, Finn: short, strong and masculine
Connor, Jackson: slightly trendy, but good strong names
Cain, Trevor, Rebel, Cricket, Ransom, Hudson: don't like either too trendy for me, bad connotations or just don't like the sound.
Hayden: Very trendy, but I love this name. And even though it's not pronounced the same I love the connection to the composer
Avery, Asa, Casper: soft boys names, I love them
Alfie, River, Harold: not bad, just not very inspiring to me

Boys: Casper, Reeve, Christopher, Finn, Trevor, Rebel, Connor, Avery, Lucas, Ransom, Jackson, Isaac, Cain, Hayden, Asa, Alfie, Harold, River, Cricket, Rhys, Hudson
Calla - My favourite from your list!
Cosette - But way too Les Mis. I am a huge fan of the movie, but now it's going to rise. The same with Eponine (maybe it won't rise, but it will stay "known." She was actually one of my favourite charcters!) Have you considered Colette or Appoline?
Cricket (as a nickname)Jude, blackbird.
