    Top five:

    Agnes - I think a Brit would be able to pull this off easily. It's similarity to the revived Alice and Frances help to make it realistic for a modern girl, and Aggie is the logical next step now that Abbie, Addie, and Maggie are all quite common. I also like that Agnes has a rich medieval history.

    Cordelia - I love that it's very feminine without being frilly, and it has a nice strength and quirkiness to it.

    Jemima - It's just so quirky, sweet, and charming. It has a very peaceful feel to it as well.

    Oona - This one is so fun and quirky, and sadly underused.

    Raphaela - Raphaela is fiery and strong and packed with personality. It also makes me think of art and the Renaissance, mostly because of Raphael.
    Emily, 19, Southeastern US.
    College student, name nerd, and generally geeky.

    My 5 picks from your list would be:

    Araminta - I'm on the fence with this, the Ara beginning is a bit frilly to my taste but I love nn Minta.
    Audra - Love this. So unexpected and fresh - way stronger & more exotic sounding than Audrey. Very stylish.
    Celeste - I have always liked Celeste, I wish it had a natural nickname.
    Estella - I love Stella - its so clunky & fun. Estella is just gorgeous, very "now".
    Magdalena nn Magda - Beautiful, uncommon, recognizable. Soft & sultry. This is my favourite for you.


    Edited to add my LEAST faves:

    Agnes
    Annabella
    Arabella
    Constance
    Enid
    Evangeline
    Fenella
    Geraldine – nn Deanie
    Iseabail (ISH-bel)
    Jemima
    Jessamy - nn Jessie
    Mildred
    Titania - This is far and away your worst pick.

    Great list. The most I was able to do was get it down to 7!

    Beatrix - In my own top 10. I adore the X.
    Esme - So sleek and international-feeling.
    Iseabail - I pretty much automatically love every single variation of Isabel. This one is lovely!
    Cordelia - I also automatically love anything that ends in -elia.
    Fenella - So underrated and elegant!
    Aurora - Just pretty.
    Sybilla/Sibylla - Sybella is my favorite variation, but I also love Sibylla. Such a cool name.

    Honorable mentions: Matilda, Rosaline, Ophelia, Amelia, Audra, Oona
    Gwen
    College student, bookworm, terrible influence.
    Owner of a cat: Minerva "Minnie"
