I like:
All of your girls' names except for Alba & Artemis. Alba I've never been into as a name (it sounds surname-y to me), and Artemis has been ruined for me by the character "Wild Wild West" Artemus Gordon. Therefore, I think of Artemis as masculine, and Artemisia as feminine.
I love ALL of your other girls' names, though--especially Maeve, Winter, Iris, and Rowan!I also like:
Rune
Cormac
Caelan
RonanYour naming style seems to reflect... Celtic sorcery? That's the first thing that comes to mind, anyway. :-)

I always have kept Kinborough on my long list because it's just such an amazingly unlikely looking name, and it has a pleasant sound. But I hadn't been able to make myself actually like it that much until more recently. I can definitely picture it on a real girl now, and I actually think it would fit in with a lot of modern names.

Margaret - Love it. A classic with great nicknames.
Virginia - Another love of mine, also my grandmother's name. This one is on my list too. :)
Anne - Love it again! I waver between Ann and Anne, and I always love the nn Annie.
Claire - Undecided on this one. I feel like I should like it a lot more than I do.
Eugenia - Looks pretty, but I don't really care for the sound.
Roisin - Very very pretty.
Shoshana - Lovely, though I generally prefer Susannah.
Euphemia - Same as Eugenia.
Fionnuala - Nice, I'd like the nickname Fiona.
Grace - Classic, like a strand of pearls.William - Love it. Can't go wrong with William.
Llewellyn - Too fussy I think. Like the look, but the sound is off for me.
Patrick - Great stand-by name. I like meeting Patricks.
Francis - Love Francis.
James - Love it. On my list, too! Definitely one of my favorites.
Malachy - Not a fan. Possibly that was influenced by the villain Malachite in Sailor Moon, hehe.
Peter - I like it, but I don't know if I would use it.
Columba - Means dove, right? Sounds a little too feminine for me.
John - Classic and I love it.
Walter - Walter is growing on me steadily.

Wow, thanks for the effort response! :)I like Anne much better than Ann. It always makes me think of Anne of Green Gables. I also love Nan and Nan- nicknames for it.I like Fia or Nuala as a nn for Fionnuala.I'm glad you feel Grace is classic, too. For some reason I get a flapper or silver-screeny vibe with it.Haha, I never thought of Malachy being similar to malachite. I went through a major Sailor Moon phase in 8th grade, but I either don't remember Malachite or he wasn't around. I like malachite the mineral. :)
