What are these names for? Future children? Pets? Story characters? Depending on what the names are for results in what names I like.

Future children, definitely not pets or story character.

Well from what you've wrote I like: 

Aurora Millicent

Bridget Lucina

Noelia Rhoswen

I like Charlotte, Leon, Lola, but I don't like those middle names for these names.

And I like Elowen and Wendi but not their first names. :)

From your list I like: 

Anastasia but not with Briseis as a middle, 

Arthur Dmitri (I would never spell Dmitri as Dimitri , why put Dim right at the beginning?)

August Sylvan (I would like Sylvain better)

Aurora Millicent (as -is)

Beatrice Rosina

Charlotte Illyria

Edgar Thierry

Hugo with a different middle

Juliet Kallisto

Leon Alaric (I've had a soft spot for Alaric since reading "High Deryni by Katherine Kurtz)

Matilda Elowen

Pandora with a different first name

Milana Romilly

Percy Beowulf

Rosamund  with a different middle (Rosamund Pandora would make me swoon!)

and

Sunniva Carys

Most of these sound like characters in a fantasy novel to me.... That's not necessarily a bad thing if that is what you are going for, but just wanted to throw that out there. I personally like a few of these names as individual names, but for my own taste I don't like any of the combinations. They are all a bit over-the-top and a bit much for me. Again, that may be the vibe you're going for- it's just not my style.

 

I do like Charlotte, Freya, Delphine, Matilda, Juliet, Rosamund, Phoebe, and Carys. I also like August from your male names. Beowulf particularly stands out to me as a big NO... I also do not know how to pronounce Sunniva, and Kallisto seems a little masculine to me. Callista is a nice name, though.

Kallisto is feminine.

There is some variation in the pronunciation of Sunniva depending on regional dialect: sunnEEva or sunnIVa or something in between. I have heard English speakers apply the Great Vowel Shift and say sunnEYEva, but that's not what you would hear in Norway.

Yeah, I would have to veto Beowulf too... it's a name that has crossed my mind more than once and I loved Anglo-Saxon classes in university, but I simply can't get behind Beowulf's personality for a modern boy. All boast and brawn, and no pity at all. Whenever I reread the poem, I start thinking that Grendel would actually be a better namesake (certainly after reading John Gardner's book), but I expect a child would take a dim view of that. Perhaps Caedmon?
