Bianca is truly special -- elegant, feminine, classic, and egregiously underused. Moira, Lorelei, and Catalina all fall into the same category of beautiful, half-forgotten names. I love them all....
WOW, what fantastic choices! You truly can't go wrong (though I do prefer the Vida spelling to Veda, with its associations of life and energy).
Brinley and Brynna are definitely the odd ones out -- the rest of these names are beautiful and timeless.

Paisley is tacky and trendy; Ethan is a time-tested classic. I feel sorry for the sister.

Neither. These are both boy's names, not unisex, and truly heinous on a girl. Ruby is vastly preferable.
I would assume these were three brothers. If that's what you want your girls to have to deal with for the rest of their lives...well, that's on you.

August, Dylan, Kennedy, and Mercer are boy's names.

Absolutely Ramona Violet.
Rory is a boy's name. Therefore, use it only if you're willing to give your son a girl's name. If not: sexist double-standard.
I agree with previous posters: Audrey, Delaney, and Charlotte are all very trendy, and most of the Charlottes I know go by Charlie.
Neither -- both are terminally outdated, with little to recommend them. Try Elsa, Eliza, Elspeth, or Susannah instead.

Definitely use another C-name -- it's too strong a theme to abandon now.

I would definitely avoid another botanical, nature, or noun name (so no Lavender Rose, Lavender Wren, or Lavender Sky).
Rory is a fantastic name -- for a boy. On a girl? Sure, but only if you're going to name her brother Ruby.
I use my own last name. My surname has immense personal significance, and I can't imagine not sharing it with my children. That said, I would consider giving my kids a hyphenated surname.
I love Jack and Charlie, but am also put out by their popularity. Hopefully no repeats:

I have British relatives, so my picks are informed by their names.

Half of these look like assemblages of random letters. I like:
From this list, Mina, Orla, and Nola are the most international and cross-culturally accessible -- and all three pair well together. My favorite combo: Mina Doutzen and Orla Tove.

Once you name a child, they have a name. Period. Changing it a few days, or even a few weeks, after the fact isn't such a big deal, but four years? No way. That just seems like a violation of your...

Thought-provoking post! I've met a lot of boys named for their fathers, and a few girls named for their grandmothers, but no girls named for their mothers. In fact, I think it's probably more common...
In no particular order...

Thea Marina Faye
Iris Cordelia Jean
Lydia Susan Faye
Phaedra Sophie Kate

Sylvie Winifred Kate

I agree that Margaret is a timeless classic, and would be quite refreshing on a little girl. Maggie, Margo, Margie, Greta, and even Marlo are all great nn options.
