Opinions on Unique Names ... Help!!!

My husband and I are waiting to see if our child's a boy or a girl so were looking at both options. We both have unique names, Milan (me) and my husbands name is Rohan, so we are more drawn to unique names. Here's our list so far, i need help on which are cute and which are too unique: 

Girls: 

Esmerelle (Ez-mur-elle pronunciation) (Esme for a nickname)

Milaina 

Vienna

Amara

Saisha (Say-sha pronunciation) 

Romelia (Ro-meal-ee-ah pronunciation) 

Sedona 

Suede

Alaska

Cherana (Cher-ah-na pronunciation) (Cher for a nickname)

 

Boys: 

Calloway

Beck

Cairo

Charleston

Kipton (Kip for a nickname)

Malakai

Salvatore

Cabo

Boston

Jett

Jaxx

 

Some of the names are super unique so we need help weeding out names that makes it look like we're trying to hard because we have so many!! thanks :)

I would eliminate:

Esmerelle - too Twilight

Suede - c'mon now, Suede? just no

Alaska

Cairo - potential cultural appropriation, maybe with Alaska and Cabo too

Boston

 

My preferred names from these lists are Amara, Romelia, Malakai, and Salvatore.
