Here are my thoughts on your list:
Miriam - not my favorite. it makes me think of an older woman
Danica - not my style.
Callista - flockhart. Ally McBeal. Anorexia.
Jasmine - Aladdin's wife.
Cambria - it makes me think of dinosaurs (cambrian period). Just not entirely my style.
Lyra (lee-ruh) - difficult to pronounce, will forever be correcting people.
Georgia - I like GiGi (GG) as a nickname, but don't know if it fits an adult, more of an elderly woman
Pandora - I don't like it. I think that naming your daughter after someone who was blamed for bringing evil into the world isn't great. Also makes me think of pandora radio.
Victoria - it's very popular. It's pretty, and classic, but doesn't seem to fit with the rest of your names. Think about whether you want her to be Victoria _ (your last initial).
Thessaly - pronounced tess-A-lee? I think there's a lot of room for confusion with this one.
Luna - I like it - maybe for a middle name.
Aurora - makes me think of sleeping beauty
Coralie - Would cora be a nn? I like it.
Coraline - Coralie is better.
Caroline - nice. Makes me think of Caroline Kennedy.
Liliana - A nice name, not my favorite.
Rosalie - don't like this one. too old fashioned for my taste.
Esmeray - no. Too many combinations of things. Sort of reminds me of Esmerelda, which makes me think of the gypsy from Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Josephine - I don't like this name, but it might be from personal experience. But Josie has been tainted for me.
Hazel - Too old fashioned. reminds me of witch hazel.
Delaney - Delaney is my favorite name!!!
Delaina - Too similar to Delaney, and I like Delaney better
Jocelyn - Not bad.
Amaria - a-MAR-ia? a-mar-IA? .. it's pretty, but a little confusing.
Novalie - too out there for me.
Indira - not a fan.
Elowen - sounds like a witches name to me
Merida - Reminds me of Disney's Brave. It's a pretty name though
Zahara - Not a favorite of mine.
Avalon - not bad.. maybe Ava as a nn? Could be a nice variation if you like the name Ava, but want something a bit more unique.
Waverly - I don't like it. It makes me think of china.. like dishes.
Gianna - pretty
Annika - not a favorite. Reminds me of Danica.
Cadence - I don't particularly like this one. It reminds me of older women for some reason.
Leona - Lewis.
Emmeline (emma-leen) - Not a favorite.
Aveline (ava-leen) - Don't like this one... like emmeline better.
Arcadia - Joan of...
Chiara - Difficult pronunciation
Penelope - I like this one... very pretty. Nellie or Nell as nn. Can grow with your child from infant, to kid, to adult. Very nice choice.
Dahlia - Very pretty! To me, similar to Penelope. Love it.
Vanessa - Not a fan.
Alissandra - Pretty.
Evangeline - Don't like it. It makes me think tele-evangelists.
Magnolia - Pretty. Maggie as nn?
Anastasia - Similarly to Josephine, not a favorite name of mine for personal reasons. Nice though.
Mirabella - no
Isabella - pretty but insanely popular!
Aaliyah - reminds me of the singer
Amaryllis - reminds me of the early 20th century. very old fashioned.
Emberly - no
Everly - nice
Angelica - rugrats.
Annabella - meh
Scarlett - love!
Augusta - I had a grandma anmed Augusta. But very old fashioned.
Elizabeth - Super popular. But has mane nicknames.

Hope this helps!

These names have depth and history so I would keep them. (Lucky 13 )
Since my top picks have mulitple names with "ine" endings I will rate them as follows:
These names would make pretty and/or quirky middle name choices.
I would eliminate these names from your list. They're either too popular and overused, unattractive and/or incredibly trendy and don't age well.
Lyra (lee-ruh) - it's usually pronounced "lie-ruh"
Alissandra - Alessandra is the correct Italian spelling.
ScarlettAll the best,
