My favourites from your list are:
Miriam - old fashioned but I love the nn Miri
Alice - one of my favourite names
Elizabeth - classic with a wide choice of nn's
Everly - pretty popular at the moment but I still like it
I also like:
Coralie - pretty
Penelope - like nn Penny
Elowen - this makes me think LOTR
Names I'd eliminate:
Merida - immediately makes me think of Brave but it IS a pretty name
Jasmine - overused
Lyra (lee-ruh) - I like this name but not with this pronunciation, it'd cause confusion
Caroline - too old fashioned (here in the UK anyway)
Esmeray - I like Esme on its own better
Jocelyn - not the same but with -lyn names I like Evelyn better
Zahara - immediately makes me think of the Jolie-Pitts
Alissandra - prefer other spellings
Isabella - very popular
Aaliyah - overused
Emberly - If this was just Ember it would be in favourites
Annabella - I prefer Annabel/Annabelle
Scarlett- Evelyn - Alice - Margot - Edith - Maeve - Keeva - Sylvie - Adeline - Gaia - Beatrix - Arya - Miriam (Miri) - Madigan -
- Seth - Malachi - Stefan - Roran (Rory) - Marcus - Reuben - Eben - Christopher (Kit) - Zachary - Gideon - Sean -

My favorites are:
Miriam: I really like the name Miriam, and I like the nn Miri
Lyra: It's not something I would have thought of, but it's pretty and different
Victoria: Classic but not common. I don't really like Vikki, but you can probably avoid it.
Coraline and Caroline: I really like both of these, but I may like Coraline more.
Josephine and Jocelyn: I have a soft spot for both of these names. Both of them, plus nns Jo and Josie, are great for kids but can also grow up with them
Indira: reminds me of Indira Ghandi. While the end of her life was tragic, her lifetime accomplishments seem to override that
Annika: I love this name for reasons I can't explain
Penelope: This name always makes me smile. It sounds so happy.
Alice: I like this one so much I would be using it for my own child if it didn't sound strange with my last name
My least favorites are:
Danica: I'm not fond of it. It makes me think of Danica Patrick
Cambria: Just NMS, it's a little too place-y
Pandora: 's box. Not the happiest story.
Hazel: it's one "old lady" name that doesn't do it for me. It makes me think of witch hazel
Novalie: Makes me think of novelty
Avalon: It's probably my own weird thing because my parents love Toyotas, but it makes me think "affordable sedan"
Anastasia: also not the happiest namesake
Evangeline: I'm from the Bible belt so this always makes me think of evangelicals, and I'm not religious. I think the media gives it a slightly negative connotation because they use it as a nice way to refer to religious radicals
Emberly: It sounds made up
The rest were names that I liked and I definitely think are usable, but they don't fall into "love it" or "hate it" for me.

On The Fence:
Aveline (ava-leen) [[I prefer the aveh-line pronunciation)
Emmeline (emma-leen) [[same as Aveline]]
Lyra (lee-ruh) [[the lyre is the symbol of my sorority; this is pronounced ly(lie)-rah. i would keep it with proper pronunciation]]
