    Top 12:
    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

    Thank you all!!

    @strawberry36 I totally get your point about Francesca association with Nanny Fran Fine. If I name my daughter Francesca and she decides she wants to get called Fran or Franny(no offend on any with this name) I will die!
