    Sorry I am not a fan of any of these names. But I will give some similar suggestions you might like:

    Selarie -->. Sela
    Dotlee -->. Dahlia (nn Dolly), Dorothy (nn Dot)
    Embolee -->. Ember, Amberly, Emberly
    Seraphin -->. Seraphine, Seraphina, Seren (I like this but spelled Seraphine)

    Baron -->. Brennan
    Despin -->. Devon, Deveraux, Declan, Desmond
    Choxtyn -->. Chauncey, Channing

    I like

    Baron b/c it was my late paternal grandfather's name!

    I was going to say the exact same. Only I was going to add that Seraphin is just a misspelling of seraphim. I also think Despin sounds like Destitin- like the diaper rash ointment.

    The nickname Dot is very cute, but better derived from Dorothy or Dorothea in my opinion.
    Embolee reminds me of an Embolism. Not the nicest association.
    Seraphin is alright, but maybe a bit too deterministic (what if your daughter doesn't want to be an angel?)

    Baron is a title and not a name. I find that as tacky as Prince or Duke.
    Despin is like de-spin, like you would de-spin a spacecraft after ejection from launch vehicle
    Choxtyn is like a mixture between choking and toxin...

    On a more positive note, these are some lovely options. I'd also add Elodie, which is a name I'm not too keen on, but it's a name :-)

    None of these names feel like names to me. But Larkub101 posted some nice suggestions.
