Alice - simple classic cannot go wrong
Amelie - love the sound and the French movie
Annabelle - prefer the less frilly version Annabel
Emmeline - classic and great NN potential
Isis - interesting and easy to say, great meaning, could be nice middle too
Juliet - classic cannot go wrong, only teasing potential is "where is Romeo?"
Ottilie - interesting, nice NN potential
Primrose - love nature names, this one is interesting and with Rose as NN cannot go wrong
Rosalind - literature connection, varied NN potential, frilly but not too much
Saskia - like the sound and NN potential. I read the meaning is "of Saxon decent". Very popular in Holland in the 70's as a first name and has history, because it is the name of Rembrandt's wife. I read above for first time that it has bad associations in Russian, but then again almost any name can have weird meanings in another language, most of the time when they are pronounced wrongly or spell out a word in that language that you do not know of. If you do not think your child will be in touch with that culture, no harm done. You can always give a middle name like Jane or Rose to give the child options when traveling.
Wisteria - interesting nature name - would only use it as a middle - could sound like Hysteria.
Cordelia - Delia is a cute NN, Cora is due for a comeback
Do not keep:
Amabel - Mabel OK Amabel better in the version of Annabel
Arabella - too frilly
Ceridwen - not sure of cute NN potential
Cornelia - in English the sound "corny"
Delaney - too much of a surname for me
Francesca - could work, depends on family name, reminds me of "Nanny Fran Fine"
Genevieve - know somebody with that name that has given me bad feelings about this name
Guinevere - legend - could be lovely middle but not a first for me
Isabella - overused as a first - could be a middle
Isabelline - to elaborate for me
Meadow - meh
Melisende - do not like this spelling
Morgana - think Fata in front of it
Pandora - nice sound, bad meaning
Persephone - I like Percy for boys
Promise - do no care for virtue/word names
Quinn - not girly enough for me
Remember- do no care for virtue/word names
Rowan - like it better on a boy
September - do no care for virtue/word names
Vashti - no idea
Winter - do no care for virtue/word names
Zelda - could be middle but too much teasing potential as a first
Zenobia - do not like the sound
