Caliadne - fn, Callie or Addie
Cecily. Cicely just looks like a misspelling of Cecily or Sicily to me. Fn, no nns.
Cressida - fn, Sid.
Delphine, but both are gorgeous. I'd put Cymbeline as mn only but Delphine could be either. Maybe Phina as a nn?
Damaris - Da-MA-ris (MA as in mat) - Mn, Maris or Mara.
Dorinda - Mn, Indy.
Eliza - Fn, I don't think it needs a nickname.
Eirlys - Mn, but it is really gorgeous. Maybe Eira as a nickname?
Gwendolen (but I'm a little biased) - Gwen
Emmeline - Fn, Em or Emme.
just Eris - Mn, I think it's short enough that no nns are necessary.
Evanthe Valentine - Since you like Eva, you could easily use it as a nn here
Evadne nn Eva - I could see it in either the first or middle spot
Ferelith - Definitely middle
Freda - Mn, don't think it needs a nickname
just Giselle - Either, also don't think it needs a nickname

Darla or Eliza? - Eliza

Dorinda vs. Elfrida = Dorinda
Darla vs. Eliza = Eliza
Eirlys vs. Eirwen = Eirlys
Elowen vs. Gwendolen = a tie!
Emmeline vs. Evangeline = a tie!
Erisbe vs. Eris = Eris
Evanthe Valentine vs. Evanthe Valentina = very close, but Evanthe Valentine

Caliadne - I've never heard of this but I like it. Very pretty but very unusual. Tons of nn options from the obvious Cali, Candy to Lady or Cadey
Cecily - Cicely also makes me think Sicily and I think it would be misspelled a lot.
Cressida - I don't like either but Drusilla is horrid and Cressida is only so-so, it would make a nice mn.
Cymbeline - again I'm not wild about either, but Cymbeline is a lovely sounding name, good mn.
Elfrida - I hate both, but Dorinda make me think of Doritos. MN.
Eliza - though not one I really like
Eirwen - Eirlys reminds me of airless as in without air.
Gwendolen - love it!
Evangeline - don't like either, but Evangeline is a nice mn.
just Eris - Erisbe sounds like a surname to me
Evanthe Valentina - flow is better with stress on the 3rd syllable
just Eva - though Evadne definitely seems to fit your style better.
Ferelith - Faerie is just too literal. Great name for a bird or rabbit, not so great for a person
Frances - though I don't care much for either
just Giselle - simplify
Gwendolen Caliadne would be beautiful!
Eliza Ferelith is also pretty
Cecily Evangeline maybe as wellOlivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
