My top 10 are bolded, and I left some comments too.
Adelaide or Audrey (I can only keep one) Love Audrey! MIL is Adelaida so kinda biased. Hard choice, but I think Audrey is prettier.
Camilla - Lovely name. Cammie or Millie are cute nns.
Candace - Not a fan. Feels dated.
Charlotte - Too popular for me, and I've never liked it. Charlie on a girl doesn't appeal. Lottie is ok.
Eleni or Helena (I can only keep one) - Definitely Helena (Hel-AY-na)
Elise - Very pretty. I like it for a middle name, but would be unexpected as a simple and pretty first.
Evangeline - Generally like it with nn Evie, but prefer it in the middle as well.
Genevieve - Love it for a middle name.
Georgia - Never found this pretty, but its better than longer forms like Georgiana,etc. Overall, dislike.
Giselle - I find this very pretty and exotic, but I've always spelled it Gisele.
Grace - Common middle name... but really lovely as a first!!
Josephine - Another middle name for me, although Josie is cute.
Katerina - I find it very pretty but dislike for personal associations. Lovely choice though.
Lydia - Never liked this. Don't find it attractive.
Magdalena - I'd prefer Magnolia. This name just doesn't feel right to me.
Maria - Too common (millions of Maria's in my family tree) but its pretty.
Margot - Quirky and cool.
Miriam - I know a lovely Miriam but I don't really like the name.
Nora - Cute and classy.
Penelope - With its new popularity (ala Kardashian) I tend to hate it. But it is lovely.
Priscilla - Mother's name. Its ok. Always found it kinda weird and I get surprised when someone likes it.
Rosamund - The "mund" is awful. I generally dislike Rose names, but its not bad. Rosalind is prettier.
Sonia - Know many Sonia's. It's pretty. I prefer it spelled Sonya.
Sophie - Lovely and beautiful but very common.
Sylvia - You don't hear this name very often, and it's pretty, but I don't like it.
Tamsin - I think this is pretty cute.
Violet - Hate this name. When pronounced Vi-let its so close to Violent. If actually pronounced as Vi-o-let then its okay, but still not a fan.

My top 10 from your picks would be:
1.Clara - This is on my top 5 list, it's beautiful and I love the association of Clara from the Nutcracker
2. Lucy - This name is very sweet
3. Julia - Although, I am a little biased on this one b/c it is my name. I think it's classic and I have yet to meet another Julia (except one, who is my cousin)
4. Anna - Love it!
5. Evangeline - This is on my top 5 list too, particularly like the nn Evie for Evangeline
6. Genevieve - This has something special to it!
7. Violet - Stunning!
8. Nora - This name is very pretty
9. Rosamund - Like it a lot! Love other Rose varieties as well
10. Sophie - If this name wasn't so popular I would have it higher on the list.
