    Alma -- Not too bad but a bit dated.

    Clementine -- Lovely.

    First or middle:
    Alma -just old fashioned to me, but I like the meaning.
    Amabel -meh.
    Artemis - Love, if you're brave enough to use it.
    Aurelia - Love it, it's on my list too.
    Blythe -I know a lot of people like this name, but it has no substance to me. Better as a middle.
    Circe - Nms.
    Clementine -Love love love, another on my list.
    Clover - I don't see it on a person, for some reason, just on a pet.
    Cressida - This name has been really growing on me lately. Possibly b/c of the Hunger Games.
    Gwenore - Prefer Guinevere or Gwendolyn, but it's usable I guess.
    Elodie - Like a lot.
    Elowen - Seems very Tolkien to me. (w/o even knowing if it actually is…)
    Euphemia - reminds me of euphemisms...
    Evangeline -Love, so gorgeous, but has religious connotations, which could be good or bad.
    Flavia -meh.
    Frida - meh.
    Helena - I like it, but could have pronunciation issues
    Honor - starbaby.
    Ingrid -very milkmaid.
    Isla - Love.
    Juniper - LOVE.
    Magnolia - Love, another one on my list.
    Meliora - Seems very frilly.
    Melisande - could have pronunciation issues, another frilly and formal.
    Mimosa - like the drink?! The only one that is really unusable to me.
    Nova - Like a lot.
    Paloma -Like it.
    Phaedra - like, not love.
    Rosamund - very usable, and underused. Nice!
    Seraphina -like.
    Seren - pronunciation? Ser-enn or serene?
    Silvia - a name that is ready for a comeback, I think.
    Soleil - pronunciation issues again, I think.
    Sophronia -very formal and frilly.
    Soraya -I know someone with this name, so I know it's usable.
    Thalassa -nms.
    Verity -usable.
    Viola -Underrated and lovely.
    Willa - Just like Viola, underrated and lovely.
    Wisteria - I think people will think of the Desperate Housewives show, at least for awhile.
    Wren -Love, love.
    Zephyrine - nms.
    Zinnia -Like.

    My favorites: Clementine, Artemis, Elodie, Juniper, Magnolia, Rosamund, Viola and Willa.

    Overall, I think your middle name list is more usable than your first name list. But I'm coming from an American perspective, and I don't know where you live.
    - current loves -
    Harriet - Flora - Violet - Clementine - Matilda - Wilhelmina - Josephine - Cordelia
    Milo - Frederick - Dashiell - Gus - Atticus - Felix - Theo - Harrison - Jack

    Ones I would cut just because they sound too fantasy for a small child/adult or will be difficult for ppl to pronounce/spell:
