I actually like Brooke, even though it is out of style. Wow, backhanded compliment there---but I mean it quite literally, as in it sounds cute and I know a gorgeous, intelligent woman with this name...but the name peaked in (US) popularity in 1996 and in a downward tailspin of usage. The other names don't interest me. (not terrible but NMS)

Audra- I much prefer Audrey.
Claire- I like it. Simple yet elegant. I prefer it in the middle.
Brooke- I really don't care for this name. Kinda dull, feels trendy.
Leona- Neutral. Leora is prettier.
Lila- Pronounced Lie-luh or Lill-luh? I like the former pronunciation, and I'd spell it "Lilah."
Evelyn/Eveline- Feels trendy. I prefer Eve.
Hattie- Maybe it'd be cute as a nickname, but even then I don't love it, and I really dislike it as a first name.
Delaney- I don't really like this name. It's perfectly fine, just not my cup of tea.
Deirdre- Bad personal association ruins this name for me.
Phaedra- LOVE. Especially with the nickname Faye.
Marlowe/Marlo- I admit, the nickname Marley is a guilty pleasure of mine, but I don't like Marlowe.
Viola- I want to like this name, but I can't. I prefer Violet.
Fallon- For a girl? Maybe I could picture this on a boy, but not on a girl.
Freya- I like this name a lot. It feels so strong to me, like a badass woman hunting bears in a blizzard (I'm tired ok)
