    Alba - It's not my style, but I can see the appeal. I'd love to meet a little Alba, though.
    Adair - Really like this one! Exotic, but has the approachable nn Addie.
    Amalia/Amelia - Makes me think of Amelia Earhart and the princess Catharina-Amalia. I think I slightly prefer Amalia, but both are gorgeous.
    Amity - Not my style, but I can see the appeal.
    Anna/Anika/Anouk/Nancy - I really like Anna and Anika, but Anika may cause some pronunciation issues. I'm neutral on Anouk, and Nancy makes me think of Sid Vicious' dead girlfriend.
    Artemis - I'm not a fan of goddess names.
    Athena - ditto, but I do think it sounds great. I like it better than Artemis.
    Celia/Zelia - I like Zelia. Celia is too much an old lady's name here in Brazil, so it puts me off. I do love Cecelia, though.
    Clea (Clay-uh) - Not a fan. I do love Clio and Cleo, though.
    Clover - I really like this one! It reminds of Clover from Totally Spies. She was a bit of an airhead, though.
    Electra - I'm not a big fan of the myth.
    Elodie - Gorgeous! I really do not have any concrete associations with it, but it makes me think of melodies, which is nice.
    Elowen - Love it! May cause some pronunciation issues.
    Enid - Not my style, I think it's not quite ready for a comeback and it sounds a bit too abrupt.
    Esther - Looove Esther! Nicknames Esti and Tess (stretch?) are lovely.
    Geneva - I prefer Genevieve.
    Gwedolyn/Guinevere - Really like both of them.
    Fern - I like this one better as a middle name.
    Fable - see Fern (but I like Fable a bit more!)
    Lilac/Lavender/Mauve? - see Fern.
    Luna - I can see the appeal and I like its meaning.
    Marceline - I like Marcella better, but Marceline is lovely. It would make a gorgeous middle.
    Millicent nn Milly - It's fine, just not my favourite.
    Natalie - It seems a little bland next to some of your other choices, but it is definitely lovely.
    Nova - I don't really like it, in portuguese, it's an adjective that means "new", so maybe that's why and not a real concern.
    Nym - I like this one! Makes me think of Nymeria from Game of Thrones - she was bada**.
    Oakley - Not my style.
    Opal - I like it better as a middle.
    Ruth - I really like this one!
    Saskia - Love it! Exotic but recognisable, the perfect "sweet spot" name.
    Scarlett - The "scar" part really puts me off.
    Stella - Lovely. Makes me think of Stella Artois, though, but that's just me.
    Talia - Not my style.
    Temperance - It's a GP of mine!
    Violet - Perfectly fine. I love it.
    Waverly - Not my style.
    Zinnia - This one intrigues me, it's cool.

    The ones in bold are the ones that striked me. I think my ultimate favourites are Amalia, Adair and Esther, with Nym as my favourite in the GP category =P

    Lovely list! =)
