    Lena
    Lay-nuh or Lee-nuh? I like both but prefer the latter as Lina
    Margaret (Margie?)
    For some reason, I can't bring myself to like it. The 'gar' in the middle is very ugly to me
    Frances
    A solid meh
    Meera
    That spelling makes me think of meerkats. Mira is gorgeous though
    Josephine
    Love the nn Jo, but not the rest of the name
    Mardee
    Mardi in French is Tuesday
    Alma
    Old fashioned
    Susannah
    I like the Zanna/Sannah nn, but not crazy about the name itself. Susan with bells on
    Clara
    Clara from Doctor Who in my mind, but if that doesn't bother you it's a lovely name
    Hazel
    Gorgeous
    Eva
    Prefer Eve and Ava, but this is definitely short and very sweet
    Audrey
    I accidentally fell in love with this name oops
    Cecilia
    Pretty, but the meaning is a sticking point for me
    Celia
    Celiac disease
    Sophie
    I could write a sonnet about how much I love Sophie. My favourite off your list and miles better than Sophia IMO.

    Lena- Pretty enough, but has never seemed like a whole name to me.
    Margaret- A little too dated for me, but I love the nicknames Maggie and Margo. I prefer Magnolia to Margaretm and Margie is, to me, way to dated for a little girl.
    Frances- I would call her Frankie, and nothing could stop me
    Meera- I prefer it spelled Mira. I think it's a pretty name, but it's not in my top ten.
    Josephine- Josie is sweet, but again, it's a little old-fashioned for me.
    Mardee- Not a huge fan.
    Alma- Again, kind of dated. I think it's cute, though, but I'd use it as a mn.
    Susannah- Adorable. I really like Susannah- it makes me think of a cute little girl with freckles and an attitude from down South.
    Clara- I prefer Claire, but this nice too. I would definitely consider Clara
    Hazel- Gorgeous. I love Hazel.
    Eva- Pretty, but too close to Ava for me to use.
    Audrey- Another great one, but being number 41 is a dealbreaker.
    Cecilia- Great. Old-fashioned, yes, but it has Cece to modern it up.
    Celia- Meh, I like Cecelia better.
    Sophie- It's definitely nice, but I would prefer Sophia, and they are both too common for me to use.

    Suggestions:
    Emmeline
    Penelope
    Ophelia
    Juliet
    Leila
    Lilith
    Angeline
    Meredith
    Vivienne
    Elizabeth
    Victoria
    Johanna
    Daphne
    Lila
    Girls: Bellamy, Rowan, Rosalie, Emmeline, Bianca, Ana, Ivy, Sunniva, Regina, Sabrina, Penelope, Margo, Annaliese, Annabeth, Amelie, Noelle, Cassandrea, Freya, Astrid, Fiona, Juliet.

    Lena- it's a pretty name that ages well, very elegant. I closely prefer Elena (even though Lena is pronounced to me like leena, and Elena eh-lane-a). But Lena alone is nice.
    Margaret (Margie?)- seems a bit dated and the nn doesn't help refresh it to my ears.
    Frances- on the fence with this. It's okay, but doesn't make me swoon
    Meera- I prefer mira spelling but really like the sound.
    Josephine- so pretty and versatile! Can be feminine or tomboyish.
    Mardee- doesn't look like a real name, and sounds like it'd be confused with Marty. Not my favorite, but maybe as a nickname for something else?
    Alma- my newest favorite 'vintage' name. Very pretty, simple but not boring. Feminine without frilly.
    Susannah- hard to avoid Susie as a nickname, depends on what you like. I like zanna as a nickname though.
    Clara- the clar-a pronunciation is hard for me to say (I feel self conscious saying it like I have a fake accent) but I do like the clare-a pronunciation...
    Hazel- very pretty!! I've gotten a good bit of push back on it though from the middle aged crowd, which surprised me (though you may have that with other names on the list I'm not sure). Wonder if 'hazy' would happen... Zellie is kinda cute for a nickname.
    Eva- I should know this one... But this name still makes me wonder, is it eh-va or ee-va?
    Audrey- on my list, love it!
    Cecilia- very nice, reminds me of Felicity.
    Celia- prefer it as a nickname for Cecilia, brings to mind celiacs disease, but it's not the first thing to come to mind.
    Sophie- I prefer Sophia but it is really nice too.
