Phoebe or Felicity; both are graceful and charming. I really dislike Margaret; the sound is so harsh.
All your options are charming, but I really adore Mazarine Francis Noa, nn Mazzy. I think the girl who had that name would be lucky indeed. Mazarine Francis Eden would be maybe even slightly more...
I think Victor is quite wonderful, connoting the perfect balance of strong and thoughtful.
Yvaine. The meaning and sound are both marvelous. My husband hates it, though.
I find Amara much more beautiful. There are so many Liv/Olivia/Olives around now that I think Livia might lose some of its distinctiveness, too.
The nerds and tech people I know generally name their daughters Tesla. Sometimes Luna or Cosima. But I know three little Teslas (brothers: Kelvin and Zaius.)

Zephyr is great!

I'm a Sarah who hated having a popular name, and I still find it a nuisance. It's not just that there were other kids with my name in my classes, though of course there were. There are also the...
!) Gorgeous. Totally usable and adorable.
2) I don't see where the pronunciation ambiguity comes in: Mazz--ah--REEN. It's spelled phonetically.
3) Mazzy is great.
Winter by a mile!
Oh, I love both Morwen and Yseult! Morwenna is also lovely and oceanic. Can't go wrong.
Another similar thought is Yvaine, evening star. Ursula or Ursina, little bear. Vesper, also evening...

Poll: Fiona Maeve is adorable.
Fiona Maeve is adorable.
I love Cosima and like Adrienne and Adelia. From your signature, though, I absolutely adore both Parisa and Allegra--so strong and beautiful!

I think of it as a stereotypical mean-girl name, rather like Tiffany, but of course it would only take one kind Veronica to dispel that association. The meaning is lovely.
I like Ada Katherine nn Ada Kate a lot!
Ada Lovelace, the Victorian mathematician, is a terrific namesake for a girl, too. And she was Byron's daughter; I think it's fair to assume that Byron had...
Tallulah Wilde by a mile. Or Tallulah Woolf?
Oriane/ Oriana is gorgeous and has a similar sound and meaning.
An Auralie will probably be subjected to lewd "orally" jokes in junior high.
Cosima, Eulalie, and Marina are all names I'd seriously consider myself. My only hesitation with Eulalie is that double-L names are in such...
I really like Phoenix and Winter. I know an adorable baby Phoenix, so it doesn't seem out there to me. Brutus, though, would be a problem. I mean, Dante puts him in Satan's mouth as punishment for...

Hermes might be cool.
It's my four-year-old nephew's name. It sounded sort of musty and awkward to me when his parents chose it, honestly, but he's so cute that he's changed my perception. Great nickname Hal is a bonus!

It's on the dramatic end of the spectrum, but it's a great name. To some degree it might depend on where you live; here in Brooklyn, for example, no one would bat an eye, and Casimir would go to...

I forgot one.
8. Margaret. So guttural. Classic, sure, but so is Gertrude.

1. Sloane. The horror. So slimy-sounding.
2. Harper, Piper, etc. Piper sounds like a name for a tree frog.
3. Peyton; a bad sound to me.
4. Mackenzie and similar.
5. Madison and Addison.
