Karina- pretty and solid, but I tend to prefer softer sounds
Nahla- I think of Nala in the Lion King. seems a bit nicknamey and with this spelling, like a Middle Eastern name
Whitney- nms, don't like most unisex names
Chandra- a bit dated and clunky
Genevieve- pretty, feminine, familiar. getting popular though
Mariah- I think Mariah Carey though I'm not a particular fan. nice name though, unique and interesting variation of Mary
Jacqueline- many people say this is dated, but I like the connection to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who makes this name seem rather glamorous
Dahlia- pronunciation issues are likely. sweet and girly and cute, not my favourite flower name though
Winter- sparkly, magical, conjures up lovely imagery of icicles and snow-covered forests and Christmas! don't particularly like the season winter actually, haha, but I'd love to meet a girl named Winter
Scarlett- my favourite name of your list by far! stunning, dramatic, sassy, and I love the Gone With the Wind reference
Lola- cute, but too nicknamey and won't age well. Lauren or Laura nn Lola maybe?
Cassandra- feminine, frilly, spunky, eye-catching
Cherie- my first thought was that this is a term of endearment and probably ought not to be used as a name. It means "dear" in French; you wouldn't name your child Dear, would you? Ironically my second thought was Cherie Blair.
Nadia- nice name, solid and strong, but feels very Russian and I would assume a Nadia was Russian
Marina- modern-sounding, sassy, snappy. not frilly at all, but wouldn't be mistaken for a boy either. I think of the British restaurant critic Marina O'Loughlin.
Celeste- generally well-liked on Nameberry, but personally not a fan- I find it a bit too tame for my taste, not very strong
Rhiannon- too harsh and masculine-sounding for me, though I know it's a girls' name~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3
Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Victoria, Diana, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy... don't love many boys' names!
