Adelina - like a lot, although it's a bit of a mouthful. Adeline?
Adelyn - prefer spelling Adeline, but this spelling's actually been around forever (though it does look more modern).
Alaina - Pretty but close to a lot of other names. Helena?
Alanna - Pretty but could have a little more substance.
Anna (too popular?) - it is popular, but in a timeless way. I really like it.
Ashlyn - pretty of-the-moment. Aisling prn the same way is very Irish heritage if you like it, but true, hard to pronounce.
Aubree/Aubrey - I really like it, esp spelled Aubrey, but it is on the rise.
Carina - I want to spell it with a K since the people I know with this name spell it this way, pretty, Scandinavian.
Carrie-Lynn (or Kellie-Lynn?) - Caroline?
Cheyenne (a lot of people seem to not like this name but I think it's cute...) - pretty, but of-the-moment and kinda trying hard to be Indian?
Chloe (too popular?) - I think it's beautiful and there's actually a Chloe in the New Testament I think to give it some history (if you like that), but it is also very Khloe Kardashian right now...
Isabella (again, popularity) - beautiful, but yeah, way of the moment. Arabella? Elizabeth (popular but timeless)
Marilyn (is that a bad idea with Marilyn Monroe?) - I don't think Marilyn Monroe is the problem, just that it's kind of dated, but not the worst dated name, I do kind of like it. Madeline, Magdalen, Mary?
Melody - pretty, ever so slightly hippy-esque to me.
Mia - pretty, but of-the-moment and kind of not enough name.
Nala (Lion King association) - pretty but kind of made up.
Reese - boy's name or candy or Reese Witherspoon...a bit too much. Theresa nn Reese?
Sage - is a spice, maybe a boy's name, or a word for wise - I just can't get into it I'm afraid.
Seraphina/Sarafina - definitely the first spelling if you do it. But c'mon, this is the Affleck baby, I would argue. Josefina? Sefarina? The latter is a pretty, real name, although probably everyone will just think her name is Seraphina a lot...
Zoe/Zoey - I like it but it's kind of riding Chloe's coat-tails.
Top picks: Adelina, Adelyn, Anna, Aubrey, Carina, Zoe. Good luck!

Adelina--princessy and pretty and sweet, and I like the nns for it (especially Addy and Lena/Lina). I do prefer Madelina, though.
Adelyn--I like Adelina more, but I do like it. Again, love Addy/Addie.
Alaina--I like the sound of it, but I vastly prefer Elena, and even then, I like Eleni (eh-LEN-ee) even more.
Alanna--I like this better than Alaina/Elaina, actually. I prefer Alannah, but it's really sweet. I like the nns Allie, Alo, and Annie.
Anna--it's classic, elegant. I don't think Anna could ever be too popular! Anna Violet Pearl was on my list for a short while!
Ashlyn--I use Ashlyn/Aislinn as my online username all the time, haha, if it's not ashthedreamer. I love it! I couldn't use it since I'm Ashley, though.
Aubrey--I like Audrey a lot more. I actually love Aubrey on a boy.
Carina--I prefer Corinne, too. I used to like Karina (this spelling) a lot, but it seems dated/overdone to me now.
Carrie-Lynn/Kellie-Lynn--both seem really 80s-ish to me. I would like Carolyn though.
Cheyenne--too cowgirlish to me. I used to love it, though, and the one Cheyenne I know is too cute!
Chloe--yeah, too popular for me, but I would consider it (and have) as a MN in a heartbeat! I think it's really sweet. I have considered Genevieve Chloe and Emmeline Chloe several times...
Isabella--Isabelle is my favorite girls' name. I LOVE Isabella, but Isabelle seems just perfect to me. I love the nns Izzy and Bella.
Marilyn--I like Mary a lot more. It does remind me of Marilyn Monroe a lot. Speaking of which, I like Monroe a lot more than Marilyn, too.
Melody--sweet, but I like Elodie more.
Mia--sweet. I do like it, but it's too popular for me. I like Amelia, Emilia, and Damiana with the nn Mia more.
Nala--I too prefer the Nahla spelling. It's sweet, but too much Lion King for me.
Reese--I prefer Rhys on a boy.
Sage--okay, but I like Gage more, on a boy.
Seraphina--I like it, but it's related to the Afflecks too much for me. :/
Zoey--I like Chloe more, but Zoe is sweet. I prefer this as a MN, too.
Isabella, Alanna(h), Mia, and Adelina are my favorites. Good luck!Lise

Ashlyn, Carina and Meoldy are my favorites from your list. If I may, I'd like to suggest Asha, as well. I know a little girl named Asha Lyn. I don't recall where they got Asha from. Lyn is from a grandma named Marilyn. Although, when her older brother says her first and middle together, it does sound like he's saying Ashlyn!
