Welcome and congratulations!
Adalyn, Ava, Madeleine, and Sophia all read as monikers with rich history that are also appeasing to the modern ear. Here are some names in a similar vein for...
Casey began its tenure as a given name in the boys camp, but today calls to mind males and females in equal measure.
And as an aside, this name evokes a fantastic song (in which the gender of the...

Adrienne is a gorgeous middle to be working with! My suggestions, in addition to the lovely ones above:

Rayan bears close resemblance to Ryan, which is a very popular name for American boys. This is a double edged sword--the similarity to Ryan will make Rayan seem familiar, but the two names might be...

Elsa is a beautiful name with a storied past. The association with the movie will fade, and even now I doubt it's particularly strong outside of the three-year-old demographic. Would you regret...

Grace is indeed popular and beautiful. All three names you listed are monosyllabic with a long "a" sound that echoes the stressed vowel in Daisy. Perhaps you'd be inspired by:
Livia is perfectly distinct from her O-wielding cousin.
Like southern.maple, I find Soren too sore and airborne.
In my Standard American English accent, the "a" in Lucas comes out as no more than a schwa; neither -ass, nor -iss, nor -uss.
Congratulations on your baby! What an eclectic mix of breeds. From a trainer's standpoint, I would urge you to stay within two syllables. I've found that the least stressed syllable in a trisyllabic...
Have you considered Nathan/Nathaniel? Tate is sometimes used as an alternative to Nate.

David's strength lies in his versatility. He is a doctor, an outdoorsman, a marketing executive, a contractor, and an artist--free from association with one particular person or stereotype. There...
I'm with the majority on this one--Ellis Gabriel all the way. Not only is the syllabic flow ideal, but I like the unexpected juxtaposition of the Welsh Ellis with the angelic Gabriel.
I shy away from Zachary with a "K" surname for the reason mentioned. Zach K___ will slur into Zakelly, Zakennedy, etc. I don't see a problem with Hayes Richard, nor with Oliver Richard. In my...
My pick would be Wren. A modern, spunky pick paired with the strong classic.

B is all Blake to me. Literary, crisp, romantic, and excellent connotations to boot.
I agree with lovemysweeties--if you both love Chase, let him be Austin Chase! Otherwise you might consider:
You mentioned that you like the sound of Guy and Kai with your surname, both of which end in a "long i" sound.
Congratulations on the new babe!
Sienna Selwyn sounds fine to my ears. Out of curiosity, how did you arrive at Selwyn? It's an unexpected pick that strikes a harmony with the first name. Of the choices you listed, my favorite for...
I find both names to be beautiful and smart on an adult women. Which sounds the best with your surname? As your daughter grows, her first + last combo will become her personal brand. How will Maeve...

Wow, those are some beautiful names being underutilized! Thanks for the post.
It depends on the feelings you're looking to evoke with the names. Harper and Sienna are ideal if you're looking for modernity. Juliette and Penelope arouse old world charm.
Nora is a respectable name that sounds pleasant alongside Lewis. Like you, I imagine the moniker aging well.
Here are some others for purpose of inspiration:
Don't let an acquaintance turn you off of a name you absolutely love. Having said that, Olivia has been extremely popular for the past decade. Your daughter would likely be Olivia Initial from...
What are your concerns about Milo? Both Milo and Finn are perfectly respectable names that will get your babe off to a good start.
