Imogen - a lovely Shakespearean gem
Clementine - its sweetness makes me smile!
Rosamund - One of my favourite -Rose names.
Florence - One of the few place names I love.
Genevieve - Gorgeous!
Georgiana - Lush and elegant
Helena - beautiful name of depth and history
Evangeline - the Catholic girl in me loves this one! I love the poem too!
Selma - uh, I like vintage names but this is not a fave. The worst name on your list so far!
Juliet - A tragic Shakespearean heroine but the name is pretty.
Artemis- I think this is lovely as a first name too!
Echo - I don't like the myth behind it! Why would anyone want to call a girl Echo, Woman need strong voices to be heard!
Scout - Boy Scout! Cute as a nn but can you see a grown woman or a grandmother with this name?
Bliss - I find this name kind of cheesy even in the middle spot.
Joy - Perfectly fine but not my favourite word name
Felicity - I love this name. It makes me happy!
Clemency - Ok but I prefer Clementine.
Lark - A nice one for the middle spot
Eliza - spunky
Hero - yeah, she was a FEMALE mythological figure but the name still seems masculine to me. On par with Bliss for cheesiness.All the best,

Imogen - Love. Underused in the States, but common enough in England. Strange, ethereal sound, but very substantial and weighty, too.
Clementine - Love it in theory, but when I actually say it aloud, it sounds like it should be the name of a household cleaner.
Rosamund - Love, regardless of pronunciation, but the hard O version is growing on me daily.
Florence - Great meaning and history, wonderful namesakes, and references a fabulous city to boot! A lovely name all around with many potential nicknames.
Genevieve - My favourite name at the moment. You really can't beat that meaning "woman of the people," and a great saint, too.
Georgiana - Love when pronounced jor-JAY-nuh. Find it a little too country for my tastes when pronounced "jor-jee-AH-nuh" or jor-jee-ANN-uh," and worst of all, "jor-JAN-uh."
Helena - Love when pronouced Helen + uh, but don't like "huh-LAY-nuh." (When pronounced thus, sounds too much like Elena, Elaine, Alaina...just blends into a whole host of names)
Evangeline - Cute
Selma - Aww, I like it. A little country, but sweet.
Juliet - Love.
Artemis - Yes, go for it!
Echo - Cute!
Scout - Maybe as a nickname.
Bliss - too literal? Not a fan at all. Hissy and somewhat hippiefied.
Joy - Sweet. Literal, too, but has been used as a name long enough that the effect is dulled.
Felicity - LOVE! Would make a great first, too!
Clemency - Prefer Clemence by a long shot.
Lark - Like!
Eliza -Like! As a first, too.
Hero - Literal, not a big fan.
