Vesper - pretty and cool name that's neat but maybe a bit too James Bondy. I might perfer Hesper, Hespera, Vespera a bit. Vespertine.
Illyria - I want to like it, but always trip up on it. I think other people would too and that's my concern.
Martha - Great underused Biblical old lady name. I consider it from time to time.
Susannah - Similar to Martha except I think it might explode one of these days. That doesn't really bother me.
Rosamund - I like the idea of it, but find the mund too clunky.
Rosemary - love Rosemary!
Merida - interesting but the prn trips me up and it's very tied to that movie for me right now.
Blythe - I want to like it but it sounds too close to 'blargh' to me. I like it more as a middle.
Isolde - I like the history but don't like "is old" - I know it's said a little differently but it wouldn't be in practice. Isault might be better.
Iris - I love Iris.
Elysia - pretty but kind of arrogant maybe. Also forever lost among Alicia/Elisa/Alyssa etc.
Serenity - a pretty virtue but it's very tied to the moment and trendy. I'd prefer Serena or Verity.
Annika - another one I want to like, but never quite get into. A fine choice though, it's really just a taste issue for me.
Odette - I am quite fond of Odette!
Persephone - A very pretty name that's worth thinking about.
Verona - I like Verona!
Soraya - I like this but think it's maybe a little odd if you're not tied to the heritage it usually goes with?
Cordelia - I understand the appeal but it always feels stuffy and overrated to me too.
Ismerie (iz-mer-ee) - Too much like Renesmee for me I think.
Pollyanna - no. That movie, the meaning, no.
Elowen - Pretty....looking like el-Owen always trips me up (it seems masculine somehow), but I do like the sound.
Valentina - very nice name
Saffron - I love the idea of it but it's really hippy dippy to me still
Wren - I like it but feels very tied to the moment
Juniper - same as Wren
Leah - I like Leah
Pearl - I like Pearl
Peony - too much Pee :/. I'd go for Phoebe or Posey for a similar feel.
Astoria - too much the neighborhood in Queens for me and I dislike anything with an As beginning, but it's still not the worst. If you like Story I'd consider just that.
Molly - I like Molly, although it feels faintly 80s and ready for a nap a bit and also I like it a bit better as a traditional nickname for Mary but that's not necessary or anything

The others are not my taste. Based on your list I wonder if you like any of these:
Carden (garden reference)
Elizabeth-so many nn options and classically pretty-took a while for this name to grow on me, but now I really appreciate it
Gemma with a hard g sound or Jemma
Janvier-french for january

Vesper- Not a fan. I think of Vespa.
Martha- Makes me think of uptight waspy women (since the only three women I personally know with this name are Martha Stewart clones)
Rosamund- sophisticated and lovely
Merida- reminds me of 'Merica. Not in a good way.
Isolde- love it
Iris- not a fan
Annika- love it
Odette- love it
Persephone- so cute
Verona- I am getting an image of that Claire Danes/Leonardo DiCaprio modern Romeo and Juliet version of Verona and it's an ugly place.
Ismerie (iz-mer-ee)- nms
Elowen- pretty but nms
Saffron- love but wouldn't use it
Leah- feels so overdone
Molly- so cute
