    Lena - I like this name pronounced the European way (LAY-nuh) not the North American way (LEE-nuh).
    Margaret - I prefer Marguerite but I like Margaret too. Margaret has loads of wonderful nicknames but Margie is "dated". Why not use Margot, Maisie, Greta, Maggie or May?
    Frances - A solid, girl-next-door choice. Love this name!
    Meera - I know this is an authentic Hindi/Sanskrit spelling but I prefer Mira.
    Josephine - A grand lady of character and distinction!
    Mardee - sounds like Marty. I don't find this attractive.
    Alma - This name has grown on me. It has vintage charm.
    Susannah - I love this Blbical gem
    Clara - sweet and vintage
    Hazel - There are other colour/nature names I like better
    Eva - A pretty name of just three letters!
    Audrey - Elegant, classy and ladylike
    Cecilia - a little too frilly for me. I prefer either Celia, Cecile or Cecily.
    Celia - A great Shakespearean name
    Sophie - I love this French version much more than Sophia

    Suggestions

    Matilda
    Rosalie
    Emmeline
    Evelina (Eva and Lena all in one!)
    Genevieve
    Lucille
    Estella/Estelle
    Beatrice/Beatrix
    Felicity
    Hannah
    Vivian
    Evangeline
    Imogen
    Aurelia
    Eleanor
    Adelaide
    Charlotte
    Abigail

    Lena - I think this is cute and sophisticated. I like the lee-nuh pronunciation.
    Margaret (Margie?) - don't like Margie but like Maggie and Greta. Also prefer Marguerite and Margot as a full name though.
    Frances - strong name, I prefer something more feminine though.
    Meera - love Mira, this spelling puts me off though.
    Josephine - love.
    Mardee - dislike. Maybe you'd like Marnie?
    Alma - love. Great meaning.
    Susannah - nice.
    Clara - nice.
    Hazel - I love this.
    Eva - cute.
    Audrey - love.
    Cecilia - nice. I prefer Celia.
    Celia - nice.
    Sophie - love.

    My top picks overall are Lena, Mira, Josephine, and Alma, but you have a great list of beautiful names, save Mardee IMO. Good luck!
