My favourites (in no particular order):
Elizabeth Arwen - beautiful classic with unexpected, magical middle.
Minerva Melody - similar contrast to Elizabeth Arwen. Great flow and lovely alliteration.
Felicity Emma - I agree with pp, love the Jane Austen feel
Cordelia Vesper - again, love the Shakespearean classic with unusual mn.
Alethea Willow - has an spritely, ethereal quality.
Gwendolyn Eva - love both names, and adore Wendy and Gwen.
If I can play with them a bit:

Lucy Amadea - love!
Mavis Linnea - love
Elizabeth Arwen - love!
Gwendolyn Eva - love love love!
Fay Sakura - this is okay, Sakura is very unfamiliar and sounds a bit like saccharine but....love Fay!
Alethea Willow (nn Thea) - I prefer just Althea, but it's a nice combo
Miranda Kelly - this sounds like a celebrity name, it's very pretty, it just really sounds like a news anchor or something.
Magnolia Seren (nn Meg) - I like Magnolia a lot
Cordelia Vesper (nn Cora) - pretty!
Minerva Melody (nn Min or Nuri) - I like Minerva, I'd prefer it with a different middle--Minerva Willow? Minerva Linnea?
Felicity Emma - okay, not nearly as interesting as your other combos.
Mei Ariadne - Like Ariadne, Mei is pretty but I'd like it better switched about Ariadne Mei
Mira Beatrix - love Beatrix, I have the same problem with Mira as I have with Kyra and Kaia--unfamiliar and uncertain pronunciation
Kyra Megumi (Meh-goo-me) -never heard of Megumi, it's not a pleasant sound. Is Kyra like Kear-uh or Kye-ruh? What about Lyra?
Kaia Verity (Kaia is kye-uh) - Love Verity. Kaia is a pretty sound, but it's never a good sign when you have to explain how it's pronounced.
Saskia Lucy (nn Kia) - love Lucy, Saskia sounds too much like Sasquatch to me.
Fiorella Sophie - sorry, Fiorella sounds like a type of pasta to me. The flow is nice though.
Esla Lillian - Esla doesn't sound like a name to me, it's very unfamiliar.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

SaskiaLucy (nn Kia) -- 7/10, I don't love either name but it's not bad
FaySakura -- 4/10, I really don't like Fay - I'd prefer Fable or May. Sakura is beautiful, though.
MavisLinnea (nn Mave or May) -- 4/10, again I really don't like Mavis. Linnea is pretty, however.
ElizabethArwen (nn Libby or Libba) -- 10/10, absolutely perfect! The only thing I don't like is the nickname.. Libby sounds kind of trashy to me.
LunaSarai -- 9/10, so pretty!
GwendolynEva (nn Wendi or Gwen) -- 6/10, I don't love Gwendolyn nor Gwen, but I like Eva.

AletheaWillow (nn Thea) -- 8/10, very delicate and pretty!
