    Love:
    Imogen - I've never gotten the appeal of this name. It seems very harsh and grating and just reminds me of Ingen (Jurassic Park)
    Clementine- this is lovely and refreshing, and Minnie makes an adorable nickname
    Rosamund - my least favorite of the Rose names. I find the -mund ending rather unattractive
    Florence - it's ok, but definitely not a favorite. One of my least favorite place names

    Like:
    Genevieve - very pretty, but possibly a little overly flowery
    Georgiana - Love it!! Especially pronounced jor-jay-na
    Helena - ok, good namesakes
    Evangeline - pretty sounding, but way too religious sounding for my taste. What if your child ends up not being Christian? Then it's just ironic
    Selma - reminds me of slime
    Juliet - pretty but a little boring compared to the rest of your list

    Guilty pleasure:
    Artemis - Love it!! Such a fantastic choice, and completely useable
    Echo - I like it, but I'm not crazy about the myth
    Scout - adorable! And such a great literary namesake! Would use this in a heartbeat

    Middles:
    Bliss - I know a Blyss and honestly she was very promiscuous and unintelligent so the name doesn't come across well to me
    Joy - very simple, could work well
    Felicity - ok
    Clemency - greatly prefer clementine
    Lark - love this one!
    Eliza - ok
    Hero - another great choice!

    Hmm...
    Imogen - adorable choice very pretty and feels very English. I love Imogen!
    Clementine - a European sounding choice, very fresh and elegant.
    Rosamund - I adore 'rose' names and Rosamund is a stunning 'rose' choice.
    Florence - another elegant name, she looks lovely and has beautiful associations

    Like:
    Genevieve - I love this name she's so elegant, pretty and has a delightful French feel.
    Georgiana - Ugh I hate George names including Georgiana
    Helena - I hate Helen (my sister's name) but love Helena she's lovely
    Evangeline - she's very pretty and has this very light airy feel
    Selma - I'm not keen prefer Salma
    Juliet - I love Juliet she sounds so romantic, has beautiful associations with Shakespeare and is generally lovely

    Guilty pleasure:
    Artemis - this name is lovely has grown on me so much feels so majestic
    Echo - I'm not keen
    Scout - I like this name, but it's slightly pretentious I'm generally unsure.

    Middles:
    Bliss - She's a pretty middle name choice with a name that has a lot of strength like Vivienne.
    Joy - A very sweet, light name. I really adore Joy she's so sweet.
    Felicity - I love Felicity she feels so lovely and has a gorgeous feminine sound.
    Clemency - I really like Clemency she sounds very fruity and lush.
    Lark - A sparky choice very sweet with a name like Charlotte.
    Eliza - A lovely Elizabeth variant, Eliza sounds pretty and fresh. I love the sound of Eliza
    Hero - Hmm I'm unsure in some ways I like this name the Shakespearean associations and on the other hand Hero feels pretentious I'm generally unsure.

    Combinations:
    Imogen Felicity
    Clementine Eliza
    Rosamund Lark
    Florence Clemency
    ---
    Genevieve Eliza
    Helena Artemis

    Love:
    Imogen - YES!
    Clementine- Oh, my darling isn't a big problem anymore, but the fruit is.
    Rosamund - It's not my favorite, but I don't hate it.
    Florence - This is okay, but the real asset is the nickname Flossie!
    Like:
    Genevieve - It's an amazing name, but I hate to even think about spelling problems.
    Georgiana - Much too long. I like Georgina better.
    Helena - Helen-ah or Hel-AY-Nah or Hel-EE-Nah?
    Evangeline - <3
    Selma - This is one of the few names that truly sounds old to me, plus "Sell Ma" jokes.
    Juliet - Shatter Me by Tahreh Mafi, plus Romeo...I'm not sure about this, but the connections aren't terrible.
    Guilty pleasure:
    Artemis - I know the original character was a goddess, but thanks to Eoin Colfer it's a male name.
    Echo - I really, really like this...
    Scout - As a nickname.

    Middles:
    Bliss - Love!
    Joy - I think it sounds like Joey, as in the boys' name.
    Felicity - An American Girl doll. That's not a bad thing, but it doesn't help the name either.
    Clemency - I like the sound, but someone mentioned it's a legal term. Try Constancy instead.
    Lark - I like this! Just don't go with Larkin unless it's a boy.
    Eliza - It's not my favorite nickname for Elizabeth, but it's a whole lot better than Liza...
    Hero - Just don't, especially for a girl. Superman and sandwiches, anyone?
    Mary, Ophelia, Lily, Genevieve, Elsa, Agatha, Gwyneth, Blanche, Kate, Florence, Nessie, Dylan
    Finn, Cove, Augustus, Alfie, Todd, Harry, Dylan, Jericho, Alistair, Melchior, Wesley


    Yes, I like Dylan on boys and girls....don't judge me.

    Rosamund nms.

    Like:
    Genevieve Ok, too princess hoity toity sounding to me. I prefer Giselle which is similar.
    Georgiana I prefer Georgia, although this name is pretty, just a little long and too much name for my style which is more simple
    Helena Helen sounds so old to me and not in a good way. Prefer Lena much more.
    Evangeline This name is long and a lot of name, but I actually love this so much. Could use Lena or Eva as nn.
    Selma Ok, but I knew a great grandma with this name, a really strong personality, so I can only think of her when I hear this.
    Juliet Beautiful, but dislike the association of death with this name from Romeo and Juliet.

    Guilty pleasure:
    Artemis way too sci fi or something for me
    Echo NOOOOOOO> Tacky.
    Scout I like this a lot b/c of the literary connection, and I know a couple people who have named their daughter this. I don't think I'd be brave enough to use it though.

    Middles:
    Bliss Horrible.
    Joy Love.
    Felicity Like.
    Clemency Ok.
    Lark Ok, what about Laken or Locklyn.
    Eliza LOVE, one of my fae names.
    Hero
    Cringe when I hear these kinds of names, it's like someone naming their daughter Precious or Chastity. Too much to put on a person.
