Thanks so much!Leila Frances. Teenager.

Lenora - I prefer Lenore. But overall this a nice, underused name.
Junia - Nice, just not my cup of tea.
Mirabel - Not my favourite "bel" name.
Bryony - Absolutely lovely.
Cosima - Also lovely, but a little "Out there".
Cosette - If you're a big Les Mis fan, great.
Colette - sounds dated to me.
Zelda - LOVE. Super cute, full of spunk. Makes me think of Zelda Fitzgerald.
Beatrix - Like Beatrice better.
Camille - Very lovely.
Cordelia - I like this one too, just not as much as some as the others on your list.
Elsa - Very pretty. But since this was just used for the Disney Movie "Frozen", there is always a chance that this will get very popular. Not sure if popularity is a huge factor for you.
Zora - I kind of like it. Also sounds a bit trendy.
Nola - cute.
Sylvia - I love Sylvia. A name that will age well.
Tamsin - Makes me think of the Tasmanian Devil.
Tess - Nice, a little plain. Prefer Tessa.
Sidonie - Nope, don't like.
Wren - Cute.
Roxana - Not my style, but not bad.
Delta - NO.
Miriam/Mariam - Love Miriam!
Sybil - Its nice, just also not really my style.

These names would be lovely as first names.
Lenora - I prefer Leonora and Eleanor but this is pretty.
Junia - An underused Biblical gem
Cosima - An exotic Italian name
Beatrix - love the literary pedigree
Camille - soft, feminine and romantic
Elsa - the name has a certain European flair and the nn Elsie is adorable.
Sylvia - a lush and lyrical name with a smooth flow
Tess - see Beatrix
Roxana - a name with style and substance
Middle Names Only
Wren - I think this name works better in the middle spot
Sidonie - people may think it's Sydney
Bryony - I like the sound more than the look with the double y's.
Miriam - see Wren
Sybil - I love the name but in competition with the similar Camille, I chose Camille.
I would eliminate...
Tamsin - I'm not a fan of "Tam" names and I don't like the "sin" in it.
Cosette - overly cutesy
Colette - "dated"
Mirabel - I prefer this name as a mn with something shorter (Tess Mirabel?)
Zelda - I like the exotic vibe of the name but not the video game association.
Delta - I think of the Tanya Tucker song "Delta Dawn" and actress Delta Burke.
Zora - Zorro the TV series comes to mind as does and the film "Zorro: The Gay Blade".
Nola - this name looks incomplete to me. Maybe as a nn for Magnolia.
Cordelia - not my favourite Shakespearean name. I don't like the jagged mix of sounds: the hard "Cor" with the dainty Delia doesn't appeal to me.All the best,
