We're still naming a theoretical future child, right?

Many of these names have mythological or fantasy literature associations. Is one of the stories/books an especial favorite? For example, if you have fond memories of staying up all night reading the next Harry Potter book the day it came out, and/or you felt a special affinity for the character Fleur, then Kallisto Fleur would be a good choice.

I don't know of a story/myth association for Eliska. Eliška (/el-ISH-ka/) is a Czech diminutive of Elizabeth. Is this the name you're thinking of? Do you have any ties with the Czech Republic?

Middle names can serve different purposes for different parents. For some, it's the place to put the honor or virtue name that doesn't quite fit modern styles, or the guilty pleasure/adventurous name that's outside their comfort zone for everyday use. For families with common surnames, or for androgynous given names, the middle name can be the disambiguator. But whichever of these applies or doesn't apply, you should use the name that has the best story attached _for_ _you_. If there's no personal significance or meaning to the middle name, why even bother bestowing it?

Yes, it's all theoretical, still.

Well, I'm really fond of idea of middle name and yes, Eliska=Eliška

Kallisto Fleur - it's the easiest to say. Some of these are real tongue twisters!
