This is the French spelling, and the correct French pronunciation is mad-uh-len.
Axl or Rose seem to fit well with Vera and Ike (or maybe I'm having an 80's flashback)
I was going to suggest Sailor Wren before I saw it on your list! Also Sailor Matilda, Sailor Clotilde, Sailor Lucinda, Sailor Jane.
Levi is great! Blake was a great poet, but Bl- names always sound ugly (or 'blah') to me.
Rogue-please no...it would be like putting a warning label for all females that the guy's a jerk
Ryder--better, but I think 'moving van'
Maverick--I still think of...
Scarlett Catiche (ku-teesh, an old French diminutive of Catherine)

Murphy is cute, but rather common (albeit as a surname). Dashiell, Ronan, or Cormac would be my picks.
Her initials would be BL...but I'd avoid it anyway--since you made that association.
Elena is the only one that doesn't lend itself to unpleasant nicknames. I find it a bit dull, but that would be my pick from your choices. I'd consider Sophia (relating to wisdom), Lyric, Muse,...
Horrific in either case. Please don't objectify your child or condemn her to being viewed as a sex object (any more than she will be anyway). Names carry weight and power--give her one she can be...

I have a French ancestor w/mn Zephyrin--just another option. Cashel is also great!

It means something if it is your intent that it should. I don't see a problem with using the mn if it works best with your child's full name. Also consider Danais--the accent is on the second...

Easton is nice--keep it. If it bothers him, he can sign and use his middle initial to break up the rhyme.
If I had boy-girl twins: Ariston Xavier Louis & Alessandra Valentina Lourdes. Both first names are of Greek origin, and the nicknames aren't matchy (Ari or Axl and Sasha or Sandra). Middle names are...
It's a gorgeous name, and not too terribly uncommon. I think people can easily learn to pronounce it, though spelling it correctly is an entirely different matter. I'd use it anyway!
I'd choose something else to avoid the BB initial/sound repetition and the rhyming you'd get with Sawyer. Cole, Cade, Forest, Mason, anything that doesn't start w/B- or end in -er.
I like Alyssa best, but it feels a bit dated. Perhaps Alessandra, Allegra, Amica, Amara, Amaya, Alannah?
Perhaps Lucrezia (love the Italian version!), Lucrece, Lourdes, Lorenza, Lucia, Lucienne, Lucille? (and Lula as the nn)
Zelie is a great French name...or Zelda, Chloe, Azelie, Zara, Juno, Junia, Allegra and Vivienne have similar meanings to Zoe.
This was hard. I prefer Madeleine on a little girl, but Lydia on an adult...so Lydia!

Rosamund Jane should be an adequate compromise.
Alexander & Nicholas
Raphael & Constantine
Caius & Hadrian
Tallulah & Delilah
Valentina & Vivienne
Honore & Helene
Tristan & Ashford
Hypatia & Sappho
Oscar & Lucinda
