Caroline/Emmaline/Clementine- Of your "line" ending names, I feel Caroline is the most beautiful and classic. If it were my short list, I would only have one "line" ending name on it (even if you wanted to pronounce the ending differently for each name). So I would drop Emmaline and Clementine
Eleanor/Ellen- I feel these names are too close in sound to both be on the list. I personally prefer Ellen, as I feel that Eleanor is overdone, but you get more nickname options with Eleanor, and Eleanor seems to match the rest of your list the best. So I would drop Ellen
Isobel/Annabelle/Belle- I love Isobel with this spelling. I prefer the Annabel spelling. Belle could be a nickname for either Isobel or Annabelle. I think your list only needs one of these names, and Isobel is just so beautiful. I would drop Annabelle and Belle.
Gwen/Gwendolyn/Guinevere- Gwen can be a nickname for either Gwendolyn or Guinevere (and you may have noticed that I generally prefer longer names with nickname options when you already like the longer name anyway). I would choose Guinevere. Not only is it a beautiful name, but it also doesn't affect your other "line" names the way Gwendolyn would. I would drop Gwen and Gwendolyn
Margot/Margaret- You can probably predict what I'm going to say by now, but Margot can be a nickname for Margaret. I prefer Margaret with the rest of your list, so I would drop Margot.
Vivienne/Corinne- These names have really similar endings. Of the two, I prefer Vivienne and feel like she belongs on your list more given the styles of your other names. I would drop Corinne.
Of the remaining names I like:
Eloise or Elodie
Florence (nn Flora)
I would drop:
Aurora (doesn't feel as classic as your other names, I have difficulty pronouncing the "r's", and there's an "adult movie" theater in my area called Aurora
Quinn (doesn't match the rest of your list at all)
Halle/Hallie (feels mismatched, as well)

Caroline -- Classic. A similar name I love is Karolina [Car-o-LEEN-ah]
Penelope -- I actually love this name, but don't think I could use it due to terribly negative reactions from my parents.
Vivienne -- Not my style. Sounds like a spoiled brat....
Aurora -- Love this. Northern Lights all the way! Seems mysterious and beautiful, but familiar enough to not be "out there" in the slightest.
Emmaline -- Could be very cute on the right little girl.
Corinne -- Not my style, but there is nothing wrong with it.
Annabelle -- Like Corinne in that it isn't my style, but it is very fine.
Lily -- Cute. Simple. Timeless. Although it is popular, it is not "without reason" (people will not ask "Why did we like that name?!")
Felicity -- Also could be very cute, but I always imagine it on a redhead.... :P
Halle/Hallie -- Too nicknamey for me.
Gwen/Gwendolyn/Guinevere -- Guinevere is the best of the three.
Matilda -- Will always be very cute
Beatrice -- Not sure how I feel about this one.
Elosie/Elodie -- Don't like Elosie, but Elodie makes me think of an adorable little girl with curly auburn hair and sparkly chocolate eyes.
Flora/Florence -- Not a fan of either.
Belle -- More middle name material in my opinion. But not bad.
Claire -- Like it, but like Klara more.
Alice -- It's okay, but not amazing.
Amelia -- Similar to Alice for me.
Eleanor -- Love this name! Also love Eleanora
Clementine (Too out there?) -- Not my style, but still kind of cute. "Menti" could be an interesting nickname.
Ellen -- My cousin's name. I like Helene or Helen better.
Opal -- Not a fan.
Isobel -- I like this more than Isabelle, but it is still very very popular.
Quinn -- As I meet more and more Quinn's, the name grows on me.
Kate -- Cute. Timeless.
Margot/Margaret -- Meh. Not my style.
Jane -- Maybe. Not really my style though.Nissa -- Elsa -- Rauha -- Karolina/Karoliina -- Melina -- Lucia -- Saoirse -- Dagny -- Rosemary -- Lydia -- Grace/Gracia -- Teresa -- Eleanora -- Kirsten "Kirsi"

Caroline- Very Southern; I like it. Cara and Carli can be nicknames.
Penelope- Love this; its so quirky and quaint. I love the nickname Nell.
Vivienne- I'm getting tired of this name, but it does have bad, personal associations to it. I prefer Vivica.
Aurora- A beautiful name. Ora is a beautiful nickname.
Emmaline- Very cute; I love Emma.
Annabelle- I don't like -belle names.
Lily- Very common, I prefer Lilla, Lilia, Layla.
Felicity- I prefer Felixa.
Halle/Hallie- I like Hallie better.
Gwen/Gwendolyn/Guinevere- I prefer Gwendolyn.
Matilda- The new Madison or Madelyn. Tilda or Tilly are cute nicks.
Beatrice- I prefer Beatrix or Bellatrix.
Elosie/Elodie- Very interesting alternatives to Eloise.
Flora/Florence- I love the nickname Flo.
Belle- Belle by itself is kind of plain.
Claire- I've never liked this name; it always seemed snobbish to me.
Alice- I prefer Alanis.
Amelia- Very popular; a good alternative could be Ellia.
Eleanor- Becoming just as popular. I like Ella or Nora.
Clementine- I always thought this was super cute. If you're concerned with it being too out there, it has middle potential.
Ellen- I prefer Elin or Llewellen.
Opal- Love! I love O names, and opals are so gorgeous.
Isobel-So tired of this.
Quinn- Quirky but common; makes a great middle.
Kate- Very popular, lacks personality, in my opinion. Kit is a cuter alternative.
Margot/Margaret- I love Margot, though I prefer Margo. If you like Margot, you may like Junot.
Jane- Can make a name super quirky as a middle. As a first, its pretty plain, and I prefer June as a first.
