Euphemia - I love it, shortened to Effie (Scottish feel, if that helps)
Flora - Fleur (French) or Fflur (Welsh) instead. Or Florence? All lovely.
Michelle - It depends why you like it (sorry, it's one of my least faves!) You could go down the French line, or look for 'el' sound at the beginning, middle or end of a name. Too many to list!
Alice - This is sweet and simple. Eliza?
Emmett - Edmund
Severus - Ummmm. Sirius?
Brielle (Brie) - See the Michelle above
Nathaniel - reminds me of traditional boys names from my yoof - Christopher? William? Daniel?

I like Effie, but it's my aunt's English name, deeming it unusable unfortunately. I'm not close to my aunt, but she and my mom don't get along at all and I don't want her to think I took the name from her....
Fleur is also an HP reference so I don't think my fiance' will like it.... he's not a fan of famous book character names, so Sirius is out as well
I have a friend named Elizabeth so Eliza might be too close to that....
I like Michelle just because of the sound really, as much as I like Michelle and Brielle, there aren't very many -elle endings that I like. I don't like Isabelle, Clarabell, Annabel, Arabelle, etc.... They just don't sound pretty... in my opinion that is
