Ok. If I liked them/found them perfectly acceptable I took them off the list.
Adelyn: Much prefer Adeline (add-uh-lie-n)
Katerina: I prefer Caterina, it looks softer.
Mackinley: I hate this. It's a surname.
Kensington: This is a place, not a person.
Calleigh: What's wrong with Callie? Why does it need to be spelt oddly?
Hadleigh: I don't like Hadley, any spelling. It's a surname not a first name.
Everleigh: I just see this is a made up word.
Anistyn: A surname and spelt incorrectly. No.

Alice - I really like it. I don't think I would use it, but it's a beautiful name.
Adelyn - I'm not a fan...I don't like Adelyn, Adeline, Adelaide, etc. I just don't think they sound nice.
Charlotte nn Charlie - I really like Charlotte and I think Charlie is cute, too, although I prefer the nickname Lottie. Either way, I think it's cute.
Katerina nn Kate - It's alright. I mean, it's a lovely name, I just doubt I would consider using it. If someone I know were to use it, I would compliment them. Does that make sense? Haha.
Cassandra nn Cassia/Cassie - I really like the name Cassie. I love everything about it. However, I'm not as big of a fan of Cassandra - so if it were up to me, I would just name my daughter Cassie.
Elisabeth nn Lissie/Elise - I prefer Elise on its own over Elisabeth.
Annabel - It's very pretty.
Rosalie - I do have a soft spot for Rose- names. This one's alright, but I do have others that I prefer, such as Rosemary or Rosemarie.
Scarlett - I really like this name. Lately, I've been seeing it everywhere, so I suppose I've been influenced. I've always thought it to be a beautiful name, but it's only recently been added to my list.
Anneliese nn Annie - Again, I prefer Annie on its own over Anneliese.
Emmeline nn Emmy - I think it's very pretty.
Lucy - I like this name! It's really cute.
Elaina nn Lainie - It's alright...Not my favorite.
Mackinley - I think I prefer the spelling McKinley, although either way, I'm not a fan.
Kensington nn Kenzie - If you want to call your daughter Kenzie, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Mackenzie. I would much prefer that.
Calleigh - I actually really like Callie, but spelled like that.
Hadleigh - Again, it's a great name, but I prefer the spelling Hadley.
Everleigh - I don't like this name very much...
Anistyn nn Annie - I can't think of anything but Jennifer Aniston...Sorry.
Out of all of them, I'd say my favorites were Scarlett, Lucy, and Charlotte - and Cassie if it were by itself. Emmeline is nice too.

Alice: I like Alice; It's very sweet.
Adelyn: I don't like it. I think it's the spelling.
Charlotte"Charlie"?: LOVE Charlotte. I would put it on my middle name list, but a family member (a VERY spunky little miss) already is named Charlotte
Katerina "Kate": I think the nickname Kate is cute, but I don't LOVE Katerina
Cassandra "Cassia/Cassie": I love Cassandra, and Cassia is a unique nickname for it.
Elisabeth "Lissie/Elise": I prefer the spelling Elizabeth, but I still love the name!
Annabel: I love it. Probably my favorite of the "-bel/belle" names.
Rosalie: I associate it with Twilight and prefer Rosalind.
Scarlett: SO, I know a Scarlett, and she isn't very pleasant. However, she hasn't completely ruined the name for me, I don't hate it.
Anneliese "Annie": Anneliese is so beautiful
Emmeline "Emmy": I don't love the nickname, but this is my favorite "Em-" name.
Lucy: Very cute. Sisters Lucy and Alice? Adorable.
Elaina "Lainie": I feel pretty neutral on this one.
I dislike all of the trendy ones... Sorry :/

You have some very pretty ones here!
Alice- lovely, classic name with tons of history and great namesakes.
Adelyn- much much prefer Adeline, but this is ok
Charlotte- pretty, I actually like Charlie as a nn, but I'm over Charlotte.
Cassandra- love Cassandra
Elisabeth- see Alice. I particularly like the "s" spelling, but why subject your daughter to a lifetime of spelling her name. You can still call her Elise or Lissie with the "z" spelling.
Annabel- very pretty.
Rosalie- see Charlotte. I don't see the appeal, and I like names that end I "ee"
Scarlett- meh. See Rosalie
Anneliese- love it!
Emmeline- it's okay. I think you have better options
Lucy- very pretty
Elaina- prefer Elena, but if you want to get to Lainie, this would be my choice
And since you asked for brutal honesty, I really don't like any of your "trendier" options at all.
Hope it helps!My Zoe ... My life
