Miriam-I have always loved this name, especially with nn Miri.
Giada-so exotic, beautiful and romantic.
Eve-Eve feels a little boring. I prefer the more romantic Eva.
Maeve-I don't love it or hate it. I can see it growing on me over time, but I'm not there yet.
Libby-I think it's a nice name in a very understated way.
Amoret-I haven't heard this one before, but it reminds of amoretto. Probably not what you're going for. Sorry.
Sibsets from these names: Miriam and Eve sound like sisters. Giada and Libby have a nice ring too.
Other suggestions: Rachel, Gianna, Evelyn, Lydia

Miriam -- I would love to see this on a baby. I have only met one Miriam, and she is my age, so to me this would completely catch people off-guard as a child's name, but in a good way. Nickname suggestion: Mim. [EDIT: Totally didn't notice this listed in your signature already!]
Giada -- Not entirely sure how to pronounce this. That alone makes me dislike it, but if I heard it said aloud and got used to it, I'm certain it would grow on me to an extent.
Eve -- I went through a phase of loving both Eve and Eden, never sure which I loved more. I tended to lean toward Eden just because it has more substance than the abrupt Eve. However, again, I know that if I were to meet a child named Eve, I would adore it.
Maeve -- I like this more than Eve. It has the same great feel and general sound, but it has more substance to it. It feels like more of a name.
Libby -- Love this! I love nicknamey names as given names, and would love to see a child named JUST Libby, not Elizabeth, Liberty, or any other "formal" name. Libby is fun and spunky.
Amoret -- Hm. I like this, but something about it just doesn't "stand out" to me.
Suggestions based on those you have:
Neve (three pronunciation options: NAY-vay, NEEV, or NEV)

Miriam - beautiful name; love your nn Mim - so cute
Giada - this is very Italian to me, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your background and perspective. I don't love the name; it makes me think of giardia (but that isn't an association the average person would likely make). I initially read the name as Glada, which I had never heard, but kind of liked in a feel-good sort of way.
Eve - I prefer Evelyn with nn Evy
Maeve - I like Maeve
Libby - this is cute but a bit too nn-y for me
Amoret - this does not have a meaning I would want associated with my daughter; I think the connotation behind this word is negative (more like harlot than love) - no offense!

Miriam - Strong and melodious. Love the nn Mim.
Giada - I agree that it sounds pretty ethnic, but it's also lovely. A good alternative to Gianna.
Eve - NMS, but I kind of like seeing it on other people.
Maeve - Getting rather mainstream, but hey, that means people know how to pronounce it.
Libby - Eh. Too cutesy. I like it better as a nn for Elizabeth.
Amoret - Have to strongly disagree with pp on this one; Amoret means "married love," like fidelity (the namesake character in The Faerie Queene's primary trait), which is pretty much the opposite of "harlot." I think it's gorgeous, as you can see in my signature!Gwen
