My favorites are Mirabelle and Rosalie for girls, and Christian and Giovanni for boys.

Genevieve – I like it, though I sort of see it as over-the-top. It’d be nice for a middle name. For a first name it’s just so frilly…
Mirabelle – I really like it; the only -belle name I like these days. That said, though, it’s still very similar to Isabelle/a, which is still really common. I’d be worried that the nickname Belle/a would be over-used… I do think it’s really pretty, though. You might also like Mirielle (mee-ree-elle) or Mireille (Mihr-RAY)?
Rosalie – I’m not crazy about it, but it is really pretty.
Charlotte – Love it! So classy and gorgeous.
Cordelia – Not a fan, it sounds so old-fashioned to me.
Antoinette – Really not my style. Like Genevieve, I think it’s over-the-top, plus I would think it has some pretty negative associations still from Marie Antoinette….
Minerva – Ooh, I love it! Cool mythology name that people actually know how to pronounce! I’ve been sort of tossing it around really, I don’t know if I’d use it for a first name, but I’d definitely consider it for a middle name!
Theodore – Love it! It’s so classy, and has such cute nicknames. Honestly it’s only not on my list because it’s my cousin’s name.
Leonardo – Really like it! Just common enough to not seem bizarre, but just rare enough that it’s unexpected and really handsome. And I really love the nicknames Leo or Leon.
Christian – Not my style. I find it kind of dry and overused, plus I’m not crazy about the religious aspect of it… It’s nice, but nothing really special, to me..
Jackson – Also not my style. Compared to your other names it’s a little plain.
Ambrose – I’ve always felt like this is a really girly-sounding name. I know it’s not, but every time I see/hear it, t just seems really feminine… It’s cool and different, but would not be my top pick…
Giovanni – I think it’s a really cool name, though I personally think of it as a cartoon villain name, so I’d never be able to use it myself. That said, though, I’d kind of love to meet a little Giovanni.
Hope that’s helpful!

The only names I don’t like from your list are: Antoinette (although, I like it as a middle name), Jackson, Giovanni, and Ambrose. Everything else, I really love!

Antoinette (especially as a middle)

Mirabelle is the real girls name standout for me! I love this name but actually had forgotten about it. Glad you jogged my memory!
Jackson is the only name on your boy list that I like.

You have so many gorgeous choices!
Charlotte-like a lot. It’s gotten super popular though.
Antoinette- It’s pretty but hard to shake the Marie Antoinette association.
Minerva–This is the only one I don’t like. I find it a bit homely compared to the others.
Theodore-I like it.
Christian- Like it.
Jackson-It’s OK but has been used a ton lately. I definitely like this spelling though compared to some of the trendy spellings in use.
Ambrose-This is too surnamey for me.
Giovanni–Like a lot.

what a cool list!!
Genevieve – a strong, elegant yet not overly fussy choice. Beautiful.
Mirabelle – one of my own favourites. I find the Mirabel spelling more refined and less cutesy but that is minor. Another strong and beautiful name.
Rosalie – I tend to associate this with Twilight these days. That said, it is a great choice and fits your style well.
Charlotte – I grew up around a lot of Charlottes so this feels too popular an overdone to me. Stylistically, it is lovely and fits nicely with your list. Possible middle name potential.
Cordelia – awesome! It is a really beautiful option and although it is quite frilly the D sound makes it more grounded and strong than over the top and fluffy. Love it.
Antoinette – this is gorgeous. I think it is more suited to the middle name spot though, seeming a little pretentious up front.
Minerva – I want to love this. It has that same cool, strong and elegant vibe that I adore (and seems to be your style). I can’t get past the ‘nerve’ sound though, it is rather unattractive. I’d love to see this used on someone else’s child, though.
Theodore – Love it. I sometimes wonder if this name lacks the strength of other male choices, but it is handsome nevertheless. Theo is a cute nickname too.
Leonardo – I like this in theory. In practice I wonder if it might be a little over the top. Leo and Leon are cool nickname choices that would bring it down to earth.
Christian – I find it weird to name a child the same name as a religion, like naming him Hindu or Sikh or Muslim… Christopher would be preferable.
Jackson – this seems out of place with your other choices. It is a strong, handsome name, just a bit more modern and trendy feeling.
Ambrose – I love this but worry about the teasing potential with ‘rose’
Giovanni – very cool. I have met a young Giovanni which has made me more open to its usage (before I worried it might be a bit much).
You have amazing taste in names. Our taste in girls names, in particular, is very similar.
