Not A Fave But A Fine Name
Nina - this is like naming a female "girl". This would be a good nn for Antonina.
Isla - it's too early to classify this contemporary name as "classic"
Annie for Anna, Anthea, Annabeth, Antonia, Annabeth etc...
Millie for Millicent, Camilla, Amelia, Emilia etc...
Evie for Evelina, Evelyn, Evangeline etc...
Daisy for MargueriteAll the best,

Fantastic list! I'm being completely honest here, so I'm sorry if I come across too harsh
Isla -Love the sound, very pretty- but if what you're going for is more of a classic feel, be warned that Isla is going to rise, along with Lila, Ella, Isabella, etc. and could wind up feeling trendy.
Esme -Dislike the Twilight connection, plus I'm just not a fan, sorry!
Daisy -Prefer it as a nickname.
Annie -I really like Annie, but I like Annabel as the longer form (or Anna, Annaliese, etc.)
Nina -Very pretty sound, very simple. I like it, but have a bad personal association, though that wouldn't affect your own name choice at all.
Evie -Cute, but a longer name for the workplace might be better.
Eliza -Like this a lot.
Lydia -Very nice. It's growing on me!
Ivy -Love it. It's gorgeous, I just dislike the plant ivy itself, which limits the name for me.
Alice -Beautiful, but getting popular.
Iris -I adore Iris! It's on my own list.
Millie -So sweet! I love this one, but again would like a longer name, though I think that's up to personal preference.
My suggestions, based on your (excellent) short classic style. I tried to pick names that are shorter and sleeker, more fit for modern times, like your own list.
