Marnie for a girl? I think it's very pretty

Marine is lovely and I'm surprised I haven't considered it before. Thanks

So, it looks like you don't like 'popular classic traditional' and do like 'slightly quirky, trendy, modern-but-still-traditional'?

How about:
Arlo, Alistair, Anton, Austin, Blake, Blair, Benedict, Casper, Cosmo, Dustin, Ellis, Elliot, Errol, Fergus, Gray, Harris, Ivan, Inigo, Justin, Jared, Jude, Jeremy, Logan, Lewis, Milo, Nico, Owen, Patrick, Parker, Quinn, Rowan, Robin, Solomon, Silas, Sidney, Theo, Vincent, Xavier

Astrid, Alexis, Alicia, Ariel, Amber, Aubrey, Bryony, Bronte, Carys, Cleo, Clarissa, Cassandra, Dulcie, Daphne, Ebony, Effie, Evadne, Eirlys, Elowen, Elina, Elianne, Fallon, Faith, Giselle, Hazel, Harmony, Hebe, Iona, Juliet, Jessamy, Katrina, Kiera, Lyra, Livia, Larissa, Leona, Lorelai, Mara, Mika, Mala, Marissa, Melinda, Marianne, Nia, Nyah, Natalia, Nadia, Piper, Robina, Robyn, Ramona, Romilly, Sadie, Saskia, Sabrina, Sorrel, Saffron, Taryn, Tamara, Verity, Xanthe, Zara

Yes that's it! I couldn't think of a name to group the ones I like into.

Thanks for the suggestions, I love Quinn! I find boys names much harder.

I love Marina, Luna from your girls' list and Quentin and John for boys. Really lovely underused classics! (I'm biased as we have one of the above mentioned)
