Yours boys' names are all good, handsome classics. I absolutely love Oliver, James, Thomas, Nicholas, and Elliot, and I really like Benjamin, Anthony, and Noah.
The girls' names are more of a mixed bag...I absolutely love Dorothea, Charlotte, Julia, Fiona, and Meredith, and I like Nicola, Jade (not Jayde please!), Gwendolyn, Willow, and Caterina. The ones I have reservations about are:
Demitria: The spelling irks me slightly, it seems like it should be Demetria, but I'll take your word this is a legit spelling. It seems chosen mainly to get the nickname Demi, though, which seems lightweight and cutesy and reminds me too much of Demi Moore. I would only use this as a middle name.
Jessa: Doesn't appeal to me, it just seems like a chopped-off, less elegant version of Jessica, which seems blah and worn-out due to its 1970's/80's mega-popularity.
Ardemis: It may be a legit version of Artemis, but most people don't know that...they'd just assume it was an ignorant misspelling of Artemis. I would either use Artemis or make this a middle name.
My #1 favorites are Thomas for a boy and Dorothea for a girl!

Oliver- 10/10 I love the sweet and classic sound of it
Benjamin- 9/10 Again, Strong and classic
James- 8/10 A good classic
Thomas- 8/10 A nice solid sounding name but I am not a fan of Tommy
Nicholas- 9/10 A solid classic and I love the nickname Nico. Nico is not as overused as nick.
Anthony- 8/10 It's a nice name bit I think the "ant" part gets me
Elliot- 10/10- I love the sound of Elliot. Coola dn modern sounding yet still a classic
Noah- 9/10 Noah is so sweet sounding yet still ages well.
Dorothea- 9/10 Such a pretty and unique name. Thea is so sweet sounding.
Nicola- 10/10 Cute and unique
Charlotte- 8/10- A pretty classic
Jade- 5/10- I'm not really a fan sounds a bit too trendy too me and I really do not like the Jayde spelling.
Demitria- 7/10 A unique name I'm not really sure I like the sound of it.
Julia- 8/10 A pretty classic with a good flow
Fiona- 9/10 Not overused and has a good solid sound to it.
Gwendolyn 10/10 Pretty and almost princess-y but has a good solid nickname in Gwen.
Meredith- 5/10- I don't really like the "Mare" sound or the "Ith" sound
Jessa- 7/10 Cute and spunky but I think it could age well.
Willow- 9/10 I love the association with Weeping Willow trees
Ardemis- 7/10 Too harsh sounding to me
Caterina- 8/10 Has such a flowy sound to it.
Good luck! :)

Benjamin - I've never liked it, and I dislike the nicknames Ben and Benji. I also happen to know a Benjamin I'm not very fond of, so that doesn't help.
James - one of my favorite names. I love this name. Beautiful and classic.
Thomas - I dislike this one too, especially the nickname Thomas. No reason in particular, I think, I just don't like it.
Nicholas - I like Nic as a nickname better than Nico. The name is okay, but far from a favorite.
Anthony - I don't like this - even though I know a cute Anthony (it tends to help).
Elliot - I love it. One of my favorites. This is a good international name as well (which is important to me. James does, unfortunately not, work as good all over the world :( ).
Noah - okay, but a bit overused and boring.
Dorothea - Nah, not a favorite of mine. I once knew a dog by this name. Doro - it's something with this part I don't like.
Nicola - okay, but both Nicole, Nicoline, Nicolina, Nicolette and other names makes me think of nicotine.
Charlotte - I don't like this one either. No reason really, I've just never liked it.
Jade - I'm not a big fan of unisex names, as I like to be able to determine someones gender just by hearing their name, but it's not one of the worst.
Demitria - No, no, no. Maybe if you're Eastern European and are planning on living there - if not: no.
Julia - okay, a lot better than Julie.
Fiona - beautiful name, I like this one a lot.
Gwendolyn - one of the names I dislike the most. It has to do with the phonetics, it being long and me not liking (most names) on G.
Meredith - I don't like this either. It's a good mermaid name though.
Jessa - okay.
Willow - I like it, even though it's unisex. It's cute if you pick a feminine middle name.
Arademis - makes me think of the Greek goddess Artemis. The name is okay for a company, a clothing store or anything like that - but not a name. It is also a bit masculine in my opinion. I would probably mistake her for a boy if it weren't for the fact that I've heard of Artemis before.
Caterina - most people will misspell this one, and I don't like name one can easily misspell. Catarina on the other hand, is nice.

They're all lovely to me. The boy names are all 10/10 for me :) They're lovely classics! Most of the girl names pretty decent as well I'd prefer the spelling Jade and I'm not crazy about Willow and Ardemis.
•Boy Favorite: Benjamin
•Girl Favorite: Demitria

I see you like old fashioned names. Some of them are bit too "old lady/man" for my liking though, especially Dorothea, Gwendolyn, Meredith and Benjamin.
Willow, Julia, Noah and James are the best

Boys: I like Ben, James, Nicholas, Anthony, Elliot and Noah. (Nicholas, Elliot, and Noah are on my baby names list!)
Girls: I like Charlotte, Jade, Julia, Gwen, and Fiona is all right. (Fiona is the name of my English teacher's daughter from last year. She was adorable.)

I really like them and the diversity they have. The only names I don't like are Nicola (I prefer it for a boy), Jade (I've just never liked it), and Caterina (I prefer Katrina). Hope that helps. Good luck:)
