General critique of my favourites?
Okay, so my list looks something like this right now, I'd love to hear what you think:
and I'm probably adding Ophelia or Octavia, I just can't choose my favourite right now. I'd love some feedback

names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. the smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

Fenella- not my style, but I can see the appeal. Briella?
Jemima- a little old for me, I guess.
Beatrix- love this! I find it more vivacious than Beatrice.
Eilidh (AY-lee)- here in the USA, it would get mangled horribly. A pretty name, though.
Sibylla/Billie- much prefer Sibyl. Sibylla feels heavy to me, and Billie is a no-no for me.
Jessa- Tessa? Jessamine?
Clementine- I'm quite fond of this one.
Annabella- a little heavy for me. Prefer Annabel.
Lettice (luh-TEES)- reminds of lettuce, and I doubt many would pronounce it as you do.
Ailbhe (Alva)- same thing as Eilidh.
Amelia- pretty. A little trendy for me though.
I feel like Ophelia is still tied to Shakespeare. Octavia is lovely though; just expect the question "Is she really your eighth child?" Both are pretty names though.A writer and a student. Just another berry, probably under-ripe.

Fenella - Always reminds me of Fennel - not a bad thing, but it IS a vegetable or whatever
Eilidh (AY-lee) - this is the name of a girl that stole a boyfriend from me so I can never like it. :P
Sibylla/Billie - I prefer sybil to be honest
Jessa - Short and sweet, like it!
Clementine - a bit too frou-frou for my tastes
Annabella - very sweet, like this one a lot
Lettice (luh-TEES) - no matter what I'll always read 'lettuce'
Ailbhe (Alva) - I think that she'd always have so much trouble with people saying/spelling it wrong
Rosemary/Romy - very cute, love the nickname
Amelia - I like it, but it's the number one girls name where I live so it's too common for my liking at the moment
Celeste/Celestine - I like it!╔══════════════╗

Fenella: I think you have better -ella names on your list.
Jemima: Cute! Nickname Jemma would be adorable.
Beatrix: I really like Beatrix - so fiery yet wearable.
Eilidh (AY-lee): very pretty, but oh, those Irish names, how they baffle non-name nerds!
Sibylla/Billie: I have never liked the sound of this.
Jessa: Pretty! I think this can stand on its own, but have you ever considered Jessamine nn Jessa?
Clementine: Never my favorite, but it's grown on me. I still think of the fruit, though.
Annabella: beautiful! I think it's a dazzling name.
Lettice (luh-TEES): It sounds a little made up to be honest. And I hate to be blunt, but it reminds me of lettuce.
Ailbhe (Alva): I don't find the sound very attractive, but there's nothing really wrong with it.
Rosemary/Romy: I prefer Rosemarie, but I have a good friend named Rosemary ("Rose") so it has good associations for me. Romy is an awesome nickname.
Amelia: Very pretty. I've heard it's pretty popular, but I haven't seen it very often.
Celeste/Celestine: I love Celestine. So pristine and sparkly!~*~**~*Larissa~*~**~*

Fenella- It just reminds me of Fennel.
Jemima- Quite nice (too close to my name)
Beatrix- Love!!! Love!!! Love!!!
Eilidh (AY-lee)- Not a fan of the sound, I love how it looks.
Sibylla/Billie- This one's cute.
Jessa- I prefer this as a nn for Jessamine.
Annabella- I prefer Arabella a lot more.
Lettice (luh-TEES)- There's something about Lettice I don't like, probably because it reminds me of Letitia, which I really don't like.
Ailbhe (Alva)- Love!!!
Rosemary/Romy- Romy's cute! And I quite like Rosemary as well (just the name, I hate the herb :P)
Amelia- Reminds me of Amy Pond, from Doctor Who (), so I have a soft spot for the name, but I also know two in my year, and it's getting quite popular atm (I think).
I don't really like Octavia or Ophelia (or many O names), so I'll just pick Ophelia.Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (16)
