I've never heard anyone pronounce it the first way.

I LOVE this idea. Eliza Stefani is gorgeous, and you can still call her Lizzy.
Zara Gabriella - would prefer a different ending on one of the names. Zara Gabrielle or Zarine Gabriella?
Olivia Theodora/Olivia Raphaella - same. Olivia Raphaelle or Olivie Theodora?
I love Nina, I think it needs a long dramatic middle though to compensate for its simplicity.
I prefer Mara. Mostly I think of the book title The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I think it sounds fresh but simple.
Mari I don't like as much because it might as well be Marie to my mind. There's...

I prefer Alanna because of the Alanna in the books by Tamora Pierce, and I just think it has a nicer shape, but I like the sequence you've suggested. :-D

I have tried to think of those which have a definite "Al" sound - you could probably make an Alberta/Albertina/Albertine nn Ally but some people could be tempted to called her Bertie.

As an atheist I would feel uncomfortable giving my child such a religious name - as anonymousperson says it means "follower of Christ". I'd be okay with saints' names but Christina is a step too far,...
I love it but it is very trendy here.
I love it! I am 100% in favour of names for girls to grow into - hopefully they'll be women for a lot lot longer than they were babies!
I actually really like Nanette. I haven't heard it much before, though I know a couple of Annettes. I think it could be fresh paired with the right mn.

When I saw the thread title I assumed it was a French variant of Olivia. I think it's really pretty.

Lina - that's the one I would choose!

Thirded! I love Adele as a first name and agree that this solves the 'El el' problem nicely.

I just remembered, I know an Isatta.
Ooh, I didn't think of Betty, Bessie, or Birdie!

Isolde is my favourite, but I also found:
I feel like it's a bit too twee as a whole name, so I'd use Marnina, then she can choose whether to stay Marnie or not as she grows up.

I really love a lot of 'old-lady names'. I think some of them will probably die off (Gertrude, anyone? Though Gertie is such a cute nn) but others are ripe for revival and are surprising and fresh...
If I was E.Kodi-Leigh I would be extremely jealous of my sister! Cleopatra is a very bold name to have to pull off but at least it's historical!
Audrey, and Adaline spelt Adeline.

Ooh, I do like scgogirl's suggestion of Laurel Mariana!
Not from Oz, but I don't think it matters. It's a very pretty name. Personally I think of the character in the Under the Never Sky book series. Which is a pretty nice link to have.

I also like Laurel Marie and Laurel Marian. I also like Laurel Marina and Laurel Marette - which is quite close to Laurel Mariette.
