Annora - definitely yes! Annora is lovely. I always go back and forth between the Annora and Honora spellings, both are utterly lovely. I love that she could be Annie, Anna, or Nora, or the fuller Annora. It's such a beautiful, refreshing name.
Anouk - I have a hard time seeing this work in America, sorry. I want to like it, and half the time I can see its appeal, but the other half of the time, it doesn't appeal to me at all.
Asha - while I'm all for Ash names, I think Asha is a bit more problematic. It's more like ahsh-ah, right not ASH-ah? Most Ash- names are with the "A" sound in "apple", so I think there'd be a lot of mispronunciations. It is striking, though, and a bit exotic, and I do love the meaning.
Dia - eh. Sorry. I want to like it, and I like a lot of the short -ia names, but Dia is not one of them. It seems a bit too short to me, and all I can think of was Dia Frampton or whatever her name was that was on the first season of The Voice here in America, and I really didn't like her music, lol.
Lailuma (middle name only) - this intrigues me! I think it'd be a cool MN. Is it Hawaiian? How is it pronounced? lye-LOO-mah?
Lilwen - a sweet take on Lily... is it Welsh? I've not come across it before, but I do like it. I would probably nix it personally, but it does intrigue me.
Nola - A big no for me, personally, sorry! I've never really loved it (always preferred Norah/Nora personally), and then I met a pretty awful Nola at work a few months ago, so she completely ruined it for me. Of course, it's one of my mom's favorite girls' names--she always brings it up when we talk about names, lol. I think she secretly hopes she'll have a granddaughter named Nola one day, haha.
Romilly - like a lot! I think it'd be a great FN or MN. I know the cutest little girl named Romilly, and it suits her so well! I'm not sure how well it goes with all the others that I've seen you post about, but I do really love it.
Vittoria - hmm. I always go back and forth on whether this is sweeter or harsher than the more classic Victoria. I like that it's Italian, but I'm not a huge fan of Victor(ia) names in general, so it's probably a no from me. I think it'd be a nice MN, though, if you could make it work.

Vittoria is awesome! I'd definitely keep that. Lilwen is cool, too. I don't care for the others though, sorry.Lucia

Annora-I really like this one! I'd never heard it before, but I searched it on Nameberry and it's lovely! Plus Ann, Anna, and Nora are all easy nicknames which I love in a name.
Anouk-This only brings to mind the singer for me, NMS.
Dia-Pretty, but I think it would make a better nickname for something like Deanna or Daniella.
Lailuma (middle name only)-Don't really like it, probably mainly because I've never heard it and am not sure on pronounciation.
Lilwen-Sounds like Little Wen to me. NMS
Nola-Interesting and pretty, but not really my style.
Romilly-Cute! Milly and Romy would make great nicknames.
Vittoria-Like it as an alternative to Victoria, but she would always have to correct people on pronounciation ("No, it's VITtoria not VICtoria") and spelling. Take it from a Catherine who's spent her whole life saying "with a C not a K", "C-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E", and (only to my friends :P) "Dude, you spelled my name wrong." It gets old!Catherine, an actress, dancer, singer, brainiac with a guilty pleasure of names.
