Congratulations! Here are some thoughts and suggestions
Coraline - beautiful name! The association with the book is strong though, and it seems destined to be misread/misheard as Caroline pretty often. Those aren't insurmountable, just make sure you're comfortable with this.
Eleanor - Really like this!
Emmeline - Quite fond of this one too.
Esme - pretty and French, has the Twilight association, I wouldn't care, just make sure you don't.
Evangeline - this one is a bit much for my taste.
Ever - I like the idea of this, and I like the fairy tale connection, but I think it's better the middle name spot.
Fern - this is so different from much of the rest of your taste, if you use it I'd encourage you to think about putting it in the middle.
Juliet - love it, very pretty! Does the alliteration with your last name work?
Snow - I love this for a middle but not so much for the start. Eira is a pretty name whose meaning relates to snow. But I doubt it's really your taste.
Verity - Love this one!
Here are some names you might like:
Clementine (ideally with the French -een prn, but that might be hard to get!)
Sarai (means princess)
Sure there are more!

Coraline- I would just use cora.
Eleanor- Don't mind it.
Emmeline- Like it.
Evangeline- I don`t see why every likes this one
Ever- No. President Ever Smith. It just doesn't fit.
Fern- isn't it a type of bush?
Juliet- I like the Juliette Spelling.
Snow- its a guilty pleasure for me.
My favorites are Juliette,Emmeline, and Eleanor.

Coraline- This is really pretty. It makes me think of the movie and the book, which isn't a bad association.
Eleanor- I like Eleanor, it is wonderful classic name but for me I like Eleanora, but that is just me I seem to like the names that are more flamboyant I guess.
Emmeline- Pretty, it is not my style but you can get pretty nicknames and it is better compared to Emma and Emily.
Esme- This name seems to be associated with twilight a lot, so if you don't want that association maybe you should bypass. I think it is pretty and may work with your french surname.
Evangeline- Very pretty but may become very popular thanks to it being used by more celebrities.
Ever- It would be cute as a nickname, but I can't picture this being a little girls real name.
Fern- Pretty, but not my style. I don't really go for a lot of plant names, except for some rose variants. This name would be nice on someone else's child though.
Juliet- This is also pretty but it may not work with your last name. I don't know, but it is very pretty. If you want to keep with your french surname maybe you can try Juliette.
Snow- Nickname material for me, not really a first name. It may be unwise also since you go by or used to go by this.
Verity- Pretty but not my style.
You have wonderful taste in names. I love a lot of your names. I guess I would recommend some other princess like names, I don't know if others have already recommend them so hopefully it isn't repeating:
Leonore (For Eleanor, if you wanted something similar but different)
And of course you could always go for a relatively comfortable french version of Margaret.
Goodluck in choosing a name! It is such a wonderful time.
