I prefer Emilia to Emmeline, but the nickname Milly works with both. It's not the most intuitive nickname for either name but it's not too much of a stretch either, probably works better with Emilia...
Tilly just looks cleaner to me, the -illi- in names like Tillie, Millie, Lillie is quite difficult to read sometimes.
Nell (if you like Penelope, why not a short form?)
Of the list in your signature, I think Alice and Madeleine would be the best options. I'd avoid another nature name for Ivy's sister as it would be a bit matchy, but other than that, familiar classic...
I think Caitlin McGillis works fine, both names are two syllables long so neither is really more of a mouthful than the other. If you're leaning towards a Catherine variation, I'd consider what, if...
I'd be hesitant about picking something more commonly used as a surname purely because you've got a surname more commonly used as a first name. Cory and Kyle are a little close for my liking, so Max...
I've only ever encountered it as a surname. The nickname Bear, which a pp mentioned, is rather cute, much nicer than the rather dated Barry which I think would end up being the default for people...
I can see how the Rayven spelling would make the nickname Ray work easier - it's not my cup of tea, but I think it works as a unisex name just fine.
They look similar and sound different, but I don't think they're too close.
My first thought as an alternative to Madeleine was Matilda. Potential nicknames are all two syllable - Milly or Tilly plus Mattie which is very close to Maddie in many accents, which is the default...

Key-ARR-uh - because I know someone with that name and that's the pronunciation they use. Though I could see some accents might say Key-AIR-uh.
I love Anna Katherine, it's on my own list, and Anna Kate is darling. And as a Sophie myself, I can vouch for it being a great name to have. Genevieve is a bit more versatile in terms of nicknames...
If I didn't have to have any input from OH, I'd probably go with Phoebe Rebecca and Imogen Charlotte.

From the 'Due Date Unknown' list, Tina Malone and Paul Chase's daughter Flame was born in December: http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/tina-malone-new-baby-50-2951703
Hmm, if Laura, Lauren, Laurel and Wren are all out:
Cadence/anything else with an -ence ending really
Yeah, a lot of those names fit into the 'vintage' category but I think those sorts of names are coming back in style. I know a Ruth and a Gary who are my age (early 20s) and there's celebs who have...

Just what I was going to say. I think it often has an accent above the E as well, though whether that would be recorded formally I don't know.
Some of these names aren't all that bizarre at all,...

If you like Emma but want something a little more unusual to go with True and Alaia, how about something that could nickname down to Em or Emma?
Emine (pronounced like Emily but with a N,...
I don't have kids of my own but when I was a kid I used to take swimming lessons and go to Brownies/Guides. I also played sport after school, both school-run clubs and ones that weren't attached to a...
ELL-en-uh would be my first guess, then Ell-EN-uh (slight shift in emphasis - though I'd go for that first if it was a double N). I wouldn't go for El-AY-nuh with the double L at all.
Names that spring to mind from the description:
Eleanor (nn Ellie maybe)
If her parents are military, maybe they named her after somewhere they were...

I haven't dreamed names of my own children, but I have dreamed my close friend was pregnant with a baby boy she named Spencer Matthew, the middle name after the baby's father. This friend happens to...
Charlotte's definitely not a grandma name - I don't know where you are with regards to regional popularity but I know quite a lot of Charlottes, from mid-20s down to toddler age, and not a single...

How are you pronouncing it? AL-to or ALL-to? The former sounds better to me as a name because the Al- beginning is fairly familiar in male names - Alan, Alex, Alfie etc. Also, there's the chef Aldo...
