Bernadette - I love Bernard (pr. BERnad, not berNARD) for a boy, but the fem forms are too long and clunky.
Rosa - Rose is better, and I don't even like it!
Grace - an unattractive sound, and a lot to live up to.
Daniela - I love Daniel for a boy but don't like any fem forms.
Elisa - no. Elizabeth or Elisabeth would be much better.
Silvia - good sound; I prefer Sylvia
Talia - No. Natalia if absolutely necessary.
Ruza - eh? Sounds like a board game. Ruth would be lovely.
Carole - nasty; better without the -e but still very dated
Lesley - unremarkable
Erin - dull
Laura - wonderful
Maree - where I live, it's a ln pronounced almost like Maria. Why not Marie?

Victor - good; Vic is fine; not as good as Victoria
Joseph - I love Joe enough to use either Joseph or Joel
Ashley - better male than female, but still not good
Thomas - not a fan unless it shortens to Tom
Lachlan - OK given the right ethnicity; otherwise just trendy
Benjamin - very good
David - wonderful
James - wonderful
Trevor - unpleasantly retro. Trev is dreadful.
Brian - pleasantly retro
Robert - a fn for me, so useable; I prefer Robin
Michael - pity it's been so popular for so long
Patrick - very good
