Avenley is still my top name...will be the name we use on our next daughter for sure....I've just been brainstorming b/c once that name is used we have nothing. Same thing that happened w/ our boy name. We had 1 boy and 1 girl name that we loved and once we use it we can't find anything we like half as much.

Carrigan-I like it alot! I've considered it before, but would have spelled it Kerrigan/Kera

Madigan-I like it and also considered it but with Madagascar so big right now I didn't like the similar sound, kwim?

Everley-Cute! Would be a great way to honor a Beverley!

Ashby- NMS, but none of the Ash- names are for some reason.

Gracen/Gracyn- I LOVE this. I would spell it Graycen

Emery- LOVE IT! But I'm drawn to Em- names. I like most of them!

Carrigan -- I'm not a fan. Sounds too much like a Cardigan sweater.
Madigan -- This reminds me of Mad Mardigan from Willow.. I would surely prefer Madeline, but that's way too popular for your taste.
Everley -- Very pretty, but I think I prefer a plain and simple Ever. I think Ever is sweet, beautiful, and meaningful. Adding the "ley" on the end makes it sound trendy, and like a lot of other popular names.
Ashby -- I don't really like any Ash names (Ashton, Asher, etc). Not really sure why though.
Gracen/Gracyn - I like it. I'd probably spell it Graecen, or something similar. I like the "Grae" part.
Emery -- I like it a lot. This is my favorite from your list (just Ever beats Emery though).

Some suggestions:
Scarlett
Mercy
Mina (Mee-nuh)
Landry
Elodie
Amalia
Waverly
Ellery
Mallory
Melody

Carrigan - i quite like it, I also like Carrington
Madigan - nms
Everley - I would probably like it if I hadn't had a mean teacher by that name!
Ashby - it's okay
Gracen/Gracyn - nms, makes me think of raisins
Emery - I think I like it better for a boy, but still like it for a girl

Carrigan - Dislike.
Madigan - Dislike.
Everley - Prefer just Ever, but Everly would be fine. (And I think the extra e in Everley is unnecessary).
Ashby - I don't really like any Ash name, but this is the best of them.
Gracen/Gracyn - Dislike.

Emery - Dislike.
