2.Agatha N, I prefer Agnes if you want a vintage name, to me Agatha is a little too clunky, whereas Agnes while old fashioned has a little more spunk and I can picture it on a little girl
6.Averina N, it's just too much imo.
8.Bronte N, the only kid I have met with this name was a boy, so for me I always picture a little boy with this name.
10.Clementine N, while I love this name I think it's best left as a guilty pleasure name
11.Cressida N, the sound just doesn't work for me.
18.Honoria N, I have a hard time picturing this as a name.
27.Millicent Y, you could use the nn Millie!
28.Nerissa N, it reminds me of the name of the wicked witch on Enchanted
32.Roxanne, N, while it's a cool name it reminds me of that song, "Roxanne, you don't have to put on that red light, walk the streets for money..."
34.Tabitha N, I have never really liked this name and I have no real reason, it just rubs me the wrong way
35.Tallulah N, it's a lot of name.

Jayden, Brayden, Kayden, Kaylee, Kylie, Neveah, etc. Adelaide may be popular but is not trendy. And Ottilie is neither popular nor trendy. In my own circle, I doubt anyone would have even heard of Ottilie -- I only know it because of nameberry. Anyway! Here is my y/n on your list. Favorites are in bold.

Adelaide--Nice but NMS
Agatha--I like old lady names, but prefer something like Harriet
Antonia--NMS, I don't really like those Roman-sounding names
Athena--Cool, but not really practical on an actual human
Augusta--This is nice, NMS, but not bad
Bronte--I like it, it just doesn't sound very pretty
Cecilia--Still a bit dated, IMO
Eleanor--Really nice, this would be high on my list if it wasn't already taken by a cousin
Evangeline--I hated it when I first came across it as a child, but now...I think it's kind of nice! Refreshing, yes.
Georgiana--I prefer Georgia
Honoria--I just don't know how to pronounce this...but I think I would put it in the same category as Antonia (NMS)
Lillian--Not bad, kinda boring. I like Lily better.
Marie--Cute moving it back to the first name place, as it's sat for so long in the middle slot
Martha--Not refreshing yet
Millicent--This is nice
Nerissa--No, too prissy
Ottilie--This is cute
Rowena--I've just never liked this name. It doesn't sound pretty, doesn't look pretty.
Roxanne--Not sure if this one is ready for a comeback
Sylvia--Um...maybe? Kinda boring...I like Sylvie better...but it's not bad.
Vivienne--NMSCurrent favorites: Olive, Louise/Louisa, Magdalene/Madeline, Phillipa, Talitha, Mallory, Blythe, Eliza, Mercy, Talia; Calvin, Charles, Gideon, Abram, Jude, Reuben, George, Reid, Clark, Holden.
