In almost all cases I prefer the traditional spelling. In a few cases, that is not the spelling you have listed, however--specifically, Bryony is more traditional than Briony, and Kalliope is arguably more "authentic" since it is a transliteration of the Greek name Καλλιοπη. Some of the surname-names and nickname-names might also have legitimate "alternate" spellings.

In the case of Claire/Clare and Violet/Violette, I would describe the variants as from different traditions rather than just different spellings, where both have a claim to being "traditional"--Clare and Violet in English, Claire and Violette in French. I would actually pronounce Violette differently as a result--Vee-oh-LET rather than VIE-lut. I don't have a strong preference between Clare and Claire; between Violet and Violette it would depend on the target pronunciation.
