I noticed that not only do your other kids all start with A but they also all have a y in their name. Is that something your interested in continuing? If so here are some suggestions:
Alyce instead of Alice (I hate misspelling names but I think it would work in your family)
Arya (Aria- r-ee-uh)
I really like Maren and I agree that it's a great way to honor both sides of the family. I think you should definitely keep it in the middle.
We never did the Y thing intentionally. . But we noticed it with our last child. Also another funny thing is, all of their middle names end in E. It would work for our boy combo, but it's not something that would make me change the name. The only main thing we want to keep is the A theme going. I really like your suggestions.. thank you very much! :)

Maren would be strictly for middle name only. If we used Alice nn would be Ally and Libby for Alivia probably.. I appeciate you trying to help thank you hun! :)
