Callie is fine, but it comes across as a nickname, a diminutive. What would the real name be?
Caley just looks made-up.
Ellery is a boy's name, like Ellery Queen, the mystery writer
Cora - nice and old-school, although to me it has associations of fluttery feminine helplessness
Ivory - sorry, this looks like something from the Aryan Nation baby name list.
Collette - nice literary association
Emari - eh - not very melodious (kind of makes me think of the Emu) and it's got pronunciation issues as well
I still think Ivy is your best bet.
