    Adelaide - beautiful. I met an Adelaide at uni, and want to hear it on more people.
    Adeline - also lovely
    Adelina - for some reason I prefer this without the 'a'
    Amelie - Yes. Beautiful french name.
    Arden - I wanted to use this, if it didn't clash with my surname.
    Aspen - Can't get into it - maybe because it reminds me of Asprin?
    Auden - Not a fan, Arden sounds prettier, or Audrey
    Aubree - Prefer it spelled Aubrey
    Azula - New to me, but nice sound
    Chantal - I know older Chantals, so it doesn't feel very fresh to me
    Charlotte - always lovely, although there are many Charlottes
    Cora - I don't dislike it, but it doesn't grab me
    Della - Not a fan
    Delta - Very hard for me to seperate this name from Delta Goodrem!
    Eleanor - One of my favourites. Yes.
    Elowen - Lovely! I taught a student with this name, and fell in love with the name.
    Emerson - Not sure that I love it for a girl.
    Emmeline - Sweet.
    Finlay - I like this, for boys and girls. Maybe I like it on boys more, because I feel there are even better names for girls out there.
    Flannery - Don't like it, the sound is not appealing to me.
    Gisela - Not a fan of the 'a'
    Gisele - Lovely, makes me think if Giselle the ballet
    Grace - I feel this name has been over done, but, it is nice.
    Hadley - This doesn't excite me.
    Harlow - Nor does this.
    Harper - Sweet name, I know a darling blonde Harper but I prefer you other names.
    Hattie - I just can't get over the 'hat' connotation I'm afraid.
    Isla - I love this. Simple and beautiful.
    Lucy - Pretty.
    Lux - Cool middle name possibility.
    Marley - No, I get dog-name feelings.
    McKinley - Not my style
    Mila - Not a fan
    Noelle - lovely.
    Nora - Cute! I like this as a nickname for Eleanora
    North - Quite nice, as a middle
    Oakley - I used to love this one, it's pretty but maybe doesn't have the substance and history I like.
    Penelope - Nice, although I really don't like the nickname Penny.
    Reese - No, I don't like it on boys and even less on girls.
    Sailor - Cute
    Scarlett - I like this
    Silje - Yes, this is beautiful!
    Silja - perhaps prefer the one above.
    Sloane - Nope. To masculine to me.
    Valencia - I love this. I also like Viveca at the moment.
    Willow - a peaceful choice
    Zara - I like this too

    Arden- mn bases only,, very manly looking on paper
    Aspen- too trendy
    Auden- nope
    Aubree- breezy
    Azula- pretty simple dulcet dainty
    Chantal- too much of a brand name
    Charlotte- solid classic that may become over-done
    Cora- Love
    Della- as a nn only, maybe from Delphine or Adelmonde
    Delta-airline anyone?
    Eleanor- good classic very stately
    Elowen- pretty flowery-like frilly
    Emerson- too boy for me
    Emmeline- pretty but the pankhurts ruined this for me imo
    Finlay- see emerson
    Flannery- very quirky/spunky

    Gisele- ditto yp gisela

    North- nn for Eleanor
    Oakley- sunglass used for ruff activities predominately used as shooting glasses and a boys name

    Penelope- LOVE
    Reese- to Reece withersppon for me and very Boyish
    Sailor- I think of little girl name Sailor Aurora, but it strikes me as female pirate name for a book.

    Scarlett- great for a red-head child or a child born in fall months or Scottish/irish ancestory to honor, otherwise, it doesn't stand out to me as much as some of the other do...

    Silje- its looks youneek, but sounds interesting, can see an appeal factor there

    Sloane- This is odten coined for kate middleton's haughty demenor or someone with that "type" of disposition, something to consider.
    Valencia-LOVE, pretty, romantic, frilly
    Willow- earthy, not too over used but getting attention
    - Princess Zara, but I like it, its not fusty but quirky and offbeat

    hope it helps!

    Adelaide - Gorgeous name.
    Adeline - Lovely, although Adelaide is much more interesting.
    Adelina - I think I slightly prefer Adeline.
    Amelie - I much prefer this to Amelia. Beautiful.
    Arden - Feels trendy, but sounds beautiful.
    Aspen - Feels like another posh name like Bentley or Hardy.
    Auden - I prefer this on a boy.
    Aubree - I prefer it spelled Aubrey.
    Azula - Not my style, but sounds very interesting.
    Chantal - Feels very dated.
    Charlotte - A beautiful classic.
    Cora - Another stunning classic.
    Della - Not my favorite "ella" name.
    Delta - I like it, although it does remind me of the airline.
    Eleanor - Gorgeous.
    Elowen - Feels magical, I love it.
    Emerson - I like the sound of it, but I dislike it as a name. If I had to, I'd choose it on a boy.
    Emmeline - Lovely.
    Finlay - I prefer it on a boy.
    Flannery - This doesn't sound like a name to me at all.
    Gisela - I prefer Giselle.
    Gisele - Sophisticated dancer, but much better spelled Giselle.
    Grace - Overused, but beautiful.
    Hadley - I dislike it, very boring. Like the parents didn't take time to find a more interesting name. Sorry!
    Harlow - Trendy, but pretty.
    Harper - As above. If I had to choose between the two, I'd choose Harlow. It isn't as overused as Harper.

    Isla - Still sounds fresh and happy.
    Indira - Great namesake, but the name feels very harsh. I'd prefer India.
    Lucy - Lovely.
    Lux - Distinctive yet familiar.
    Marley - Not my style, but it's okay. Too many people would associate it with the dog from Marley & Me.

    Mila - Sweet, was my top choice before it became so popular.
    Noelle - Good for a Christmas baby.
    Nora - Quirky. I prefer it as a nickname for Eleanor and variations.
    North - Only as a boy middle.
    Oakley - I like Oak on boys.
    Penelope - I dislike it, but I can understand the appeal. Penny is lovely.
    Reese - Much prefer Rhys. On boys.
    Sailor - It's on my guilty pleasure list! Too cool.
    Scarlett - Sweet.
    Silje - I have a soft spot for most Scandinavian names.

    Valencia - I love the city, dislike the name.
