LOVE Eira, my only reservation is that it would be mispronounced Ira all the time...oh my it is so beautiful in Welsh!
Also Love Nydia, know a very nice and successful person with this name.
Arwen - May use it for our child but don't like how "nerdy" some people view it because of the LOTR character even though it is a form of "muse" in Welsh
Like Marcheline quite a bit and Marceline as well.
Love Niamh but would use a spelling where the prn is more obvious...depends on where you live.
Mirin and Maren are beautiful as well.
Azure--I have a soft spot for "blue" names, Cerulean is even neat but maybe not useable.
Others I would keep on the list:

Names that I would use for first names ( the names with an * means that I love them the most, for some reason a few of them are all in a row )
Names I wouldn't use at all:

I tend to think that just about every name is useable. Whether or not I personally would use it is another question. . There is the rare occasion that I think a name is not useable, usually due to inability to pronounce easily or terrible associations, but again....it's rare.
Bernadette- Useable, but would probably get a few funny looks. Still kind of out-there.
Sarai- suh-ray or suh-rye? Other than the occasional mispronunciation, I think this works.
Thisbe- I like this name. So cool. Useable
Aeliana- First thing I think of- alien. Might not be pronounced that way, but looks like it. I would avoid it.
Isabeau- Useable. Might blend in with the Isabellas, though
Kennedy- Definitely useable
Jensine- Really no idea how to pronounce this. I would use Jenson.
Drea- Dree-uh or Dray-uh. Pronunciation issues, but would work.
Isaline- Useable. Blend in with Isabellas, but still very pretty
Inessa- Useable. Unusual, but easy to pronounce.
Nessa- easy to pronounce. Might get misheard as Tessa on occasion
Astrid- Useable. Space-y, very cool.
Keturah-Useable, although unusual
Viviette-Easy to pronounce.
Marcheline- Leen or line? other than that, it's pretty easy. Very different.
Yesenia- Again, unsure of how to pronounce.
Cambrie- Cam-bree? That' alrigbht
Zadie-I like it. Useable.
Arava-Uh-rah-vuh? Uh-ray-vuh? Unsure, but useable.
Suki- Pretty useable
Zada- soft or hard a? Useable
Eugenia-Useable. Known name, easily pronounced, cute on a little girl, sophisticated on adult.
Freya- Very useable
Haidee- Sure...although maybe confused with Haiti. Some people may be offended, but I doubt it.
Julietta-Sure, although sounds quite made up
Alexane- Ummm, it's fine
Paige- very useable
Aster- useable, but you may have some teasing with the first syllable sounding like a certain bad word
Manon- I actually like this, except for the 'Man' part. Tease-able, but useable.
Campbell-Useable. Would prefer on boy
Alivia- spell it Olivia. Prettier and fuller that way, imo.
Magdalen- Love love love Magdalen, Magdalene, Magdalena. Go for it!
Virginia-Love it. Useable, although possibility of teasing with the 'virgin' thing.
Amedea- cool. Useable
Hilaria- Hilarious? I think this would be tooo tease-able.
Henna-sure, although different
Seeley- On a boy. For Seeley I would name her Cecelia or Celia and nn her Ceely
Senga-Never heard of it, but workable
Ramona-Useable. cute and spunky
Eira-Useable despite possible mispronunciations
Leocadia-Different, but workable
Keighley-Ummm no. Too hard to spell...maybe Keely
Geraldine-Useable, although old
Nola- I like! Very useable
Angelia- Alright. Probably confused with Angelica
Bellatrix-Not useable. Waaaay too much of a Harry Potter association
Margaux- Useable. Moreso spelled Margo or Margot.
Isa- I like it. Useable
Sylvia-Useable. Like it!
Imogen-Love it, so pretty. Useable
Kairi- sure. How about Carey?

I'm just going to list all the ones I think are usable and comment on them:
Sarai- You're pushing it. It would be weird on some kids, not on others
Thisbe- Not sure if its usable, but I love it!
Aeliana- Again, on the border. It kind of looks made up, and I worry about pronunciation
Isabeau- Love btw
Briony- I love this one too
Kennedy- It's so trendy, but yes it is usable
Drea- by itself? That's pushing it. As a nickname for Andrea, totally usable.
Tamar- Not saying I like it, but it is usable.
Isaline- I actually kind of like it. Its a nice change from Isabelle
Nessa- I guess it's usable. It sounds to short and childish for me, like a nick name for Vanessa, but that's just me.
Cambrie- It's trendy, but I kind of like it.
Eliora- I like this one
Haidee- I'm kind of biased to this because I have a character named this.
Julietta- Not my favorite. I prefer Juliet. But it is usable.
Alexane- I'm not sure how to pronounce this. Alex-anne? I guess it is usable.
Paige- Trendy, but yeah
Maeva- This is kind of cool. I like it.
Peri- Not my favorite, but it is alright.
Noelia- Its a little too over-girly for my taste, but it is usable
Eira- This one is on the border solely because of pronunciation. I don't think people would pronounce this right.
Cleora- I like it, it is different
Xia- It is out there, but usable
Athalia- I prefer Thalia, but it is usable
Margaux- I actually love this spelling, I thought I was the only one!
Arwen- You're pushing it here. I'm not sure how usable this is because of the whole Lord of the Rings thing, though I love it
MoriahJust another teenberry and writer, a lover of names

Massive list! Wow.
Bernadette -- Useable.
Sarai -- Love! Has flair, but not too much.
Thisbe -- Rhymes with frisbee? No.
Aeliana -- Spell it differently.
Nicola -- Useable.
Isabeau -- Bad. No. Not a fan. It's like a bad masculinization of Isabelle, but it's still for girls? No. Yech.
Briony -- Useable.
Kennedy -- LOVE it. I love surnamey names. It still has a feminine sound to it. Looks clean and nice. Love it.
Jensine -- I wouldn't. But I guess it's useable? Looks a little made up.
Drea -- I'd pass.
Tamar -- Not my style, but I know a Tamar, she wears it well. Useable.
Isaline -- Meh. Useable.
Inessa -- Useable, not really a fan.
Nessa -- Useable.
Astrid -- Useable. And I like it. A little stuffy, maybe, but it suits my style.
Keturah -- Uhh...I'd avoid it.
Frances -- Completely useable. Not in love, but I think Frankie as a nickname could make it so cute.
Viviette -- Eh. Looks made up. Maybe it isn't, but. I'd pass.
Beryl -- Pass. Sounds like the name of a witch.
Marcheline -- Ooh! Useable and fancy! I like it!
Yesenia -- Kind of a Russian vibe. I like it. Offbeat, but I'll call it useable.
Cambrie -- Useable? But I'd pass.
Zadie -- Totally useable. I little too quirky feeling for me, but definitely useable.
Arava -- Sounds like a sci-fi name. Or. Eh. I'm not feeling it.
Suki -- Useable.
Evony -- Wanting it to be Ebony. Wouldn't use either.
Zada -- Pass.
Eugenia -- I have a weird love for this name, and I think it's because I know a few Eugenias that I've really liked. Definitely useable.
Freya -- Totally useable.
Niamh -- Useable...not my usual taste, but it has an appeal. I quite like it. Niamh. Yeah, I like it a lot. Nice choice there.
Eliora -- Useable.
Haidee -- No thanks.
Neela -- I'll pass.
Julietta -- Useable. Too frilly for my tastes, I prefer Juilet.
Mirin -- Useable and cute!

Azure -- Useable. It's got flair! More of a guilty pleasure name for me, but I do like it.
Magdalen -- Huh. I like this variant. It's got something. Very useable.
Virginia -- Useable, but I hate it. It's my middle name haha and I just don't like it. But I suspect I would approve wholeheartedly if it weren't my name, it's the kind of name I usually like. And my mother, another Virginia, went by Ginger, which is an amazing nickname.
Amedea -- No thanks.
