My new annotated list!
Here's my list - feel free to add your opinion!
Alice - I've loved it for a really long time and it's definitely my favourite.
Ada - I really love this too. But if I use Alice I won't use this don't want AA.
Annabelle - A friend of mine shotgunned it as an honouree name for her mum.
Cora - Its nice it has vintage charm. But i like too many 'A' ending names.
Danica - Star reference and I love the feel of it.
Ida - Like it but prefer Ada, Ida in Europe is pronounced EEE-DAH. And since we have family there, I wouldn't like that pronunciation.
Elena - Really like it spoken like ELAINA.
Eloise - I really like it especially in reference to Kay Thompson's book. Except it has a harsh ending sound.
Esme/May - in honour of my aunt whose birthday was in May. Still deciding if I prefer Esme or not. Twilight reference doesn't bother me.
Esther/Estelle - Love the biblical meaning and the star reference. I really like Estella; but it doesn't flow.
Etta/Eva/Elsa - Like both, but Eva's too popular and Etta sounds like theres something missing. Elsa is a possibility but I'm not sure I LOVE it.
Giselle - I really think this is quite beautiful, although it does sound princessy.
Hazel - I really like it.
Helena - I have a bit of an infatuation with this name right now!
'Lavender - A guilty pleasure name.
Lovisa - It really speaks to my German heritage.
Nightingale - As a possible alternative to my maiden name 'Gale.'
Pearl - To honour my great grandmother.
Reyna - I really like it especially with this spelling.
Rose - only as a first name!
Violet - Love it.
Zoya - I love it as well as its reference in the book 'Zoya.'

I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

Alice - My favorite on your list, but definitely cannot pair with Esme due to Twilight reference, IMO
Ada - NMS. Reminds me of the saying 'adda boy.
Annabelle - Lovely! This one is on my top 10 list
Cora - Nice, love it as a nn to Coralie
Danica - Pretty but don't like the nn Dani
Ida - NMS.
Elena - If you prefer Elaina, I would stick with that spelling to avoid pronunciation issues.
Eloise - Love this one! Esp nn Ellie, so sweet and ages well IMO
Esme/May - A fav of mine, I don't mind the Twilight reference either, but definitely cannot pair with other Twilight names
Esther/Estelle - I prefer Stella to Estella, but Estelle has a very pretty ring to it, not a fan of Esther though.
Etta/Eva/Elsa - Eva is popular, but if you use as a nn to Evangeline/Evangelina you get the Eva nn and a not as popular name, as for Etta and Elsa, I prefer Eva of the three
Giselle - I just see this as potential for disaster. Gis sounds just like Jizz.. and Idk, maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't use this name just as I wouldn't use the name Richard for it's potential school yard nn of Dick. BUT that's my paranoid side, I love "elle" names, and find my paranoia of school yard bullies for my future children a bit annoying, but I can't help it. LOL.
Hazel - I prefer Jade to Hazel, but I do love the Z factor!
Helena - NMS, but I definitely prefer Helena to Helen. Has a less boring effect IMO.
Lavender - I prefer Violet to Lavender in both names and colors, but Lavender is a sweet non popular route as opposed to all the Lilies and Roses out there.
Lovisa - Never heard this one before, so unsure of the pronunciation.
Nightingale - Like as a mn only.
Pearl - Cute! I do like Pearla as well.
Reyna - I love this spelling! My MIL's maiden name was Reynosa, and her sister has a daughter named Reyna in honour of the last name, and everyone compliments her for the name choice and spelling
Rose - I LOVE Rose, but in the form Rosalie, hubby doesn't he hates the nn Rosie, but I find it absolutely lovely and the popularity doesn't bother me, even for a mn.
Violet - Love it!
Zoya - NMS, I prefer Zoe. Then again, my youngest step daughter is Zoe, so I'm a little biased.
Great names! My suggestions to go with your list are: Cordelia, Zaylee, and Elenora.

Danica - I like it
Ida - I like Ada better but Ida is nice

Etta/Eva/Elsa - I like Eva the best but Etta is cute too, Elsa sounds harsh to me
Giselle - I like it, if you don't mind the supermodel connection
Hazel - I like it
Helena -wonderful name, I considered it myself
'Lavender - I don't know that this would work as a first name
Lovisa - great middle name potential
Nightingale - Gale sounds better as it is
Pearl - Gorgeous!
Reyna - I love the name and the connection to the Virgin Mary
Rose - I prefer it as a middle name, it is the second middle name of my second daughter
Violet - beautiful a consideration for our twins
