Eurydice, Andromeda, and Antigone are all major guilty pleasures for me...
Avalon I associate too heavily with new jersey.
Jupiter or Orion I could never see on a girl. Although I would love to see a little boy named Orion.
Nausica is too close to nausea imo.
Arachne, way too much spider connection for me. Thats a lot of baggage to carry around even if the name is lovely in theory.
Diana, Victoria, Iris, and Lucretia I could see actually being used. Guinevere I would love to see used, but it would take some naming guts.

Gaia- Love it! Great alternative to Maia.
Dylan- It's alright for a girl. I prefer this name on a guy.
Lucretia- Not a fan.
Hero- It's alright. I think this makes for a better middle name.
Nausicaa- I think this names looks better spelled "Nausica".
Pandora- 's Box! I played Pandora in a play. Maybe not the best connection. Still, it's a pretty name.
Antigone- Love this name. Used to e on my list. Kind of tragic connection.
Avalon- Reminds me to much of the product.
Briseis- Life time of people asking, "how do you spell that".
Selena -Not close to your name. I love it. Most modern name on your list.
Andromeda- Too clunky for me.
Victoria- Favorite name on your list.
Jupiter - Though I prefer Greek mythology, I guess a Roman one wouldn't hurt *sigh* haha. I agree that this name is better on a girl.
Guinevere- Not a fan.
Hermione- Too Harry Potter. Not a fan of Harry Potter. Sorry.
Iris- Beautiful name. On my list.
Orion- For a guy, I would love to see this.
Osiris- I like the name too.
Electra- I think of Carmen.
Diana- Hasn't aged well - outdated.
Xanthe- This name is starting to appear everywhere. NMS, but other people seem to enjoy it.

Ligeia - I don't know where to begin with trying to attempt to say this haha.
Eurydice- It's okay. Not my favorite.
Igraine - Reminds me of migraine.

Gaia - like it for a character. Can't see it on a real person.
Dylan - for a girl? NO! Don't even really like it on a boy, really.
Lucretia - love it, but the story behind it is sad.
Hero - I know it's legitimately a girl's name in mythology, but it just does NOT click in my brain as such. Don't like!
Nausicaa - reminds me of the Miyazaki film.
Pandora - kind of GP for me. Really like, but wouldn't use I think.
Antigone - my mind says "anti gone" for some reason.
Avalon - I don't know why, but "snooty private school" comes to mind with this name.
Briseis - not a fan of Bri- type names...
Arachne - very GP for me. Like it, but no daughter of mine will be named this.
Amalthea - somewhere between okay and dislike.
Selena - A bit close to Sabrina for me, but very lovely.
Andromeda - never really liked her character for some reason. Seems so helpless.
Victoria - Too "mean girl" to me. (personal association)
Jupiter - Don't like on a girl, sorry.
Guinevere - don't like the Gwen nn, otherwise okay.
Hermione - Ugh! I'm not even gonna go there with this one...
Iris - ruined for me thanks to a certain song with this name.
Orion - One of my favorite all-time BOY names. Great emphasis on boy...!
Osiris - lovely! More of a name I would bestow on a character though.
Electra - Is it sad that my first thought was Carmen Electra?
Diana - love it!
Xanthe - so sick of this one.
Morrigan - love it! Very powerful name though, almost intimidating at times. Nevertheless, it ranks high on my list.
Demeter - kind of like
Ligeia - I like how it has special significance for you, even though I'm not sure how to pronounce it.

Girls: Sonya, Caroline, Sakura, Carmilla, Terra

Gaia - don't like
Dylan - this one works as a name, but it's not my favorite. There's a girl in The Secret Life that has this name.
Lucretia - like
Hero - don't like, it's a word, I don't think it works as a name
Nausicaa - reminds me of Nausicaa of The Valley of the Wind, not my taste
Pandora - dislike, mainly because it's strongly associated with the Jewelry store. I already know guy's named Jared who get teased for that.
Antigone - sounds like a medication, Antigone- removes the itch, sorry I couldn't resist = dislike
Avalon - I think it's too associated with the fantasy place
Briseis - not a fan of
Arachne - also not a fan, I see pronunciation errors with this one
Amalthea - it's okay, not my taste
Selena - I like it, but it might be too close to your name. I ditched Rosalie because my middle name is Rose.
Andromeda - I think it's too out there for a name, but it's apparently popular among the berries
Victoria - like
Jupiter - dislike, I don't like planet names, it just leads to teasing
Guinevere - not my tastes
Hermione - like, I think it's too strongly associated with Harry Potter though
Iris - like
Orion - a little out there
Osiris - not my style, but it's alright
Electra - I don't like this at all, but a lot of berries do.
Diana - this is my name so of course I like it, lol, but why not a first name?
Xanthe - not a fan
Morrigan - I prefer Morgan and many people will probably pronounce this as Morgan or see it as a misspelled Morgan
Demeter - a little too out there
Ligeia - too weird for my tastes, but if it has special meaning then I think it'll be okay as a middle
Eurydice - don't like
Igraine - don't like
