You have some great choices here. I'm a fan of your style.
Lark Evelyn - I like it, at least I think I do. Lark is one of those names that's beautiful in theory, but when you say it out loud, it can potentially sound a bit off. Try calling it out like you would to a child, and see how silly (or not silly) you feel.
Luna Penelope - I really like it, but flow-wise, it's a bit bumpy for me. I think Penelope, Kaia, and Tess would make a cuter sibset, as each of their names would have a different amount of syllables, but they all have that light, sweet, airy quality.
Esme Coraline - Good, yes, preferably if pronounced EZZ-may. That said, despite the name's history, it will always be associated with Twilight for me.
Posy Adelaide - Posy as a full name is not for me, but it does complement Tess well. Both are short and sweet and contain an S.
Anja Cecily - Unless there's a family history, I prefer spelling Anya, assuming you're in an English-speaking country. Otherwise, I like it.
Elin Violet - Not a fan. Maybe because I don't get "Elin." Is it Ellen? Isn't that who Tiger Woods cheated with? It's my only association. Are you Swedish? Not that you have to be to use that spelling; I was just wondering if there's any special reason you'd choose a version of the name that's going to be much less recognisable in places like the US and UK.
Sage Florence - Florence Sage is much superior, I think. Though Florence doesn't pair particularly well with Tess or Kaia.
Ivy Imogen - Not a fan of the alliteration in this case or the flow (I'm not against alliteration wholesale, just in this particular instance). That said, Ivy is a wonderful match with Tess and Kaia. Ivy Coraline, Ivy Beatrix, Ivy Clementine, Ivy Genevieve.
Sela Margaret - Cute, like it a lot. Sela is one of the very few names on my girl list.
Eden Amelia - Not a fan of Eden, as it feels uber-trendy. And it's also a weirdly loaded name? It has a pleasant sound, but reminds me of names like "Heaven."
Nora Beatrix - I like it. Nora, Kaia, and Tess is a cute sibset. Though Nora does sound far more serious than those names.
Ruby Cordelia - This is my favourite for you, at least first name Ruby. Ruby, Kaia, Tess -- all short and sweet, but no one is left out as far as endings and matching letters.
Faye Clementine - Like it. Prefer Fae, as it seems more ethereal and less country
Vera Lillian - Like it.
Etta Genevieve - Not a fan of Etta on its own (prefer as a nickname), but this is a pretty combo.
Iris Matilda - Iris and Matilda don't go together to my ears. They should, as they're both old-lady names. But they have a different feel to me.
Neve Charlotte - Unexpected combo and cute.

Lark Evelyn - trendy/gimmicky
Luna Penelope - getting popular but Luna is lovely, switch Penelope to Penelopa to try something new
Esme Coraline - Twilight connotation but worth it since its so lovely
Posy Adelaide - go with Posy as the middle name for better flow
Anja Cecily - switch Cecily to the first name, odd sound for a first name
Elin Violet - Tiger Woods ex
Sage Florence - no flow, try Fiorentina, Florencia
Ivy Imogen - a lot of I, overused nature name + Beyonce's kid & Imogen has been at the top on Nameberry - id trade them for Evie Ilaria
Sela Margaret - different and light, for a middle try March, Marchaline, Maisie
Eden Amelia - just ok, Eden seems to be in the same category as Lotus & Maya, trying too hard to find 'new' & 'exotic' nature names
Nora Beatrix - prefer Nora Bellatrix
Ruby Cordelia - switch Cordelia to the first name for better flow
Faye Clementine - Faye used to be trendy and then because gimmicky and Clementine is currently trendy. Faye may have had enough downtime to deserve a revival
Vera Lillian - Wang. kinda trendy, trying to hard to use a 'rare' letter
Etta Genevieve - try Etta Jessamy instead for a less popular middle
Iris Matilda - no flow, try the variation Maudlin Iris instead
Neve Charlotte - dislike Neve, just odd sound, wouldnt want to be called that, Charlotte is uber popular. try Neely (knee-ly)
