Adelaide – Yes, it seems right on track with the Ad-names that are popular, without actually being trendy or popular
Agatha – No, while a lot of nameberry finds old lady comeback names cute, the real world appreciates them a LOT less. Besides that, the sounds are not cute or feminine on a little girl
Antonia – Yes, not my style, but nothing wrong with it
Athena – Yes
Augusta – No, harsh and ugly sounds
Averina – No, looks made up and trendy
Azalea – Yes
Bronte – No, too harsh as a first
Cecilia – No, I only think of celiac disease when I here Celia type names
Clementine – No, this sounds like a joke to me. Plus “Clem” only makes me think of “Clammy” or “Phlegm”. Yick
Cressida – Yes
Edith – No, See Agatha
Eleanor – Yes, though I’m getting a bit sick of Elle names
Evangeline – Yes
Florence – No, See Agatha/Edith, HOWEVER, I’m more on the fence about this one. Maybe cause I have heard this on children recently and it worked, while the other’s did not.
Genevieve – Yes
Georgiana – No, sounds like it’s trying a bit too hard
Honoria – No
Isadora – Yes
Jessamine – Yes
Lillian – Yes, but you have a lot more interesting options on this list
Louisa – Yes
Lucinda – Yes
Margaret – Yes
Marie – No, a bit boring
Martha – No, uninteresting
Millicent – No, See Agatha
Nerissa – No, a bit much
Ophelia – Yes
Ottilie – Yes
Rowena – No, filled with uglier sounds
Roxanne – No, too harsh
Sylvia – Yes
Tabitha – Yes
Tallulah – No, trying to hard

1.Adelaide- y, though I do like Adeline more
2.Agatha- n, slightly old-fashioned. Maybe Agnes, though I know that's old-fashioned too
3.Antonia- y, I think someone could pull it off
4.Athena- n, too associated with the Greeks. Maybe as a middle, though
5.Augusta- y, I like this one, though it's a bit heavy-handed
6.Averina- n, to kre8tiv
7.Azalea- n, I initially liked it, but too flowery for me
8.Bronte- y, I like the Bronte sisters connection though like I said, hard to pull off
9.Cecilia- y- lovely unless you note the meaning (blind), I like Cecily
10.Clementine- y, this one too, fond memories
11.Cressida- n, reminds me too much of watercress
12.Edith- n, nickname could be cute, but too old for me
13.Eleanor- y, nice, but Elinor looks more streamlined
14.Evangeline- y, I like this one a lot. It's sweet and nickname possible
15.Florence- y, place-name connections and a Florence Nightingale as well
16.Genevieve- y, elegant
17.Georgiana- n, too heavy. I know a Georgiana actually, she goes by Ana Claire
18.Honoria- n, honors? No thanks. Though Ria could be cute.
19.Isadora- n, lovely and all, but the Dora the Explorer association just throws me off
20.Jessamine- y, light feeling to it. Flower as well, and less dated than Jasmine I think
21.Lillian- y, pretty sound but I don't like the look of it. Maybe Lillien?
22.Louisa- n, seemingly beautiful but it's just nnn for me
23.Lucinda- y, I like this because it comes with the Lucy or Luce nickname.
24.Margaret- y, classic. How could this not be liked?
25.Marie- y, a bit old, but it could work. I like this more in the first name spot
26.Martha- n, again, too heavy for me. Too grandmother-ish
27.Millicent- y, nickname Millie grabs it for me, though I don't like the -cent ending as much
28.Nerissa- n, for me, a person who likes popular/classical names, Nerissa is a bit out of my box
29.Ophelia- n, just think of her when she gets to high school and has to a study out of her tragical name
30.Ottilie- y, beautiful! One of my favorites
31.Rowena- n, too awkward, dunno why. Maybe Rowan
32.Roxanne- n, old-ish sounding
33.Sylvia- y, pretty, but slightly dated. Sylvie is a bit more chic
34.Tabitha- n, same above. A little dated.
35.Tallulah- y, I would recommend this only for adventurous people, but an adventurous person could make it work
36.Vivienne- y, Love this! One of my favorites
Hope this helped!A writer and a student. Just another berry, probably under-ripe.

I think you have a great list of names, and they are all lovely but that is not very helpful when you're trying to narrow down a list! so I'll try to be as completely honest as I can
