Here are my thoughts,
Adelaide, this is very trendy right now, but it is so beautiful
Cassidy, so cute and it is a name that a kid can grow into, I also love the nickname cassie
Hazelle, very cute but I do not like the nickname hazy
Rowanne, this is a little ouside of my comfort zone
Chenoa, I have never heard of this name before, but I do not like it, it is a bit clunky
Julia, classic and beautiful
Esme, very trendy, but beautiful
Eloise, I cannot get the character from the books out of my mind sorry
Ebony, cute but i don't know about the nickname ebbie
Bonnie, cute but outdated and I try to stay away from names with songs about them
Briarose, this makes me think of thorns, sorry
Sorrel, never heard of it, but I do not like the nickname
Elodie, love it, it is beautiful but odie is a little odd
Novalee, makes me think of the word novelty
Remember with the hole nickname thing that a lot of the time kids find different nicknames when they go to school and these are usually the lasting ones, so I wouldn't plan to much on nicknames unless they are obvious choices like Ash for Ashley. Just something to think about, hope I could help.Annette

Adelaide (addy)- Love!
Cassidy (cass)- I much prefer Cassandra.
Hazelle (hazy)- I'm really not sure how to pronounce this. Is it the same as Hazel, is it huh-ZEL, or is it hay-ZEL? Whatever it is, I much prefer Hazel, which I think is a lot more classic.
Renee (ren)- I prefer just Wren, but Renee is fine.
Rowanne (annie)- I prefer Roxanne. Rowanne is trying a bit too hard to feminize a male name.
Chenoa (chenny)- Reminds me of the male name Chinua. I think this one could be a bit confusing and I'm not really a fan. I like Noa.
Julia (jules)- Very classic- can't go wrong! I also like Juliette.
Esme (essie)- I love Essie!
Eloise (easy)- Easy is a really unfortunate nickname for a girl, but I love Eloise.
Ebony (ebbie)- Never thought of this as a particularly classy name.
Bonnie (bon)- This seems more like a nickname to me.
Briarose (bree)- is this pronounced Briar Rose, like Sleeping Beauty, or Bria Rose (BREE-uh)? I think a spelling change is in order for either one.
Sorrel (solly)- Not my favorite word name because of what it is.
Elodie (odie)- Odie isn't very appealing to me, but I love Elodie.
Novalee (nova)- I really like Nova on its own. Nova's beautiful- it doesn't need the lee tacked on!

Adelaide (addy)- Adelaide is pretty, but I don't care for Addy.
Cassidy (cass)- NMS. Very 1990's to me.
Hazelle (hazy)- Prefer the origional spelling of Hazel. I don't like Hazy as a nickname.
Renee (ren)- NMS.
Rowanne (annie)- NMS, I suggest Rownan
Chenoa (chenny)- Never heard of this before, I don't like it.
Julia (jules)- Very pretty.
Esme (essie)- Love Esme, though I see a nickname as unecessary.
Eloise (easy)- Okay, don't like Easy.
Ebony (ebbie)- NMS
Bonnie (bon)- Bonnie is sweet, but it doesn't need a nickname
Briarose (bree)- Don't care for the nickname. The smoosh is a bit much. Very "Sleeping Beauty"
Sorrel (solly)- NMS
Elodie (odie)- Elodie is pretty, don't like Odie
Novalee (nova)- like anettevernon, I see novelty. NMS
Your names are interesting, but I think a lot of the nicknames are uncessary. Some of these are short enough that it doesn't need to be shortened any more. My favorite from the list would be Adeliade, without the nickname Addy.
