Our little girl arrived two days early, on my birthday, August 13th! She weighed 7 lbs, 14 oz and was 20" long.
I posted a number of times on the Baby Girl Names Forum as my husband and I took a...
I love both! I like Pepper as a nn for Penelope. Pippa usually goes with Philippa, which I'm less crazy about as a first name. But Pippa is cute! And Poppy would be another possibility.

I also like Charlotte Elizabeth the best.
My pick: Caroline Elizabeth.
What a great list! I wish mine was that interesting.
Hendrick, Philomon, Sussex, and Franklin are great!
Of the female list, I love Sadina, Minerva, Lovinia, and Effie. (I wonder what it is...
Oh, and I forgot Daisy and Sadie under the list of girls' names with the -y ending, above!
In addition to these great suggestions, how about:

What's the name?
I'm dealing with the same issue. The name we've agreed on is Penelope, which is at #125 and rising. I'm afraid it will be top 10 in a few years and I'll have major regrets.
I can't say I'm a fan of Independence. It's a lot of name for a little girl, and makes me think of the Kelly Clarkson song "Miss Independence."
How about Temperance, Liberty, or Constance, if you...

I thought immediately of Tansy. But also:
My first thought was Lennox... which is more of a unisex name. There are some good namesakes: 18th century poet Charlotte Lennox, and Annie Lennox, of course. Not sure if it is your style...
I think Quinn goes well with your sibset of Mason and Brenna.
Or are you asking which is a better middle name? I still like Clara.
I agree that Clara is best. I like:

I like the idea of using Marlo or Marlene, with Marley as a nickname. Marley is cute, but I'm not sure it will grow with her.

Emma is too common! Pearl is unique and fresh.
For Beatrice: Trixie, Betty?
Phyllis: Phaedra, Phoebe? Phineas (for a boy?)
For Nancy: Francine? Ananda? Ananya?
Harriet: I LOVE Harriet. Too bad he won't go for it. Maybe Aria or Hara or...

Nooo.... not Penelope! It's currently #125. I think it will be a while before it gets to top 10 status... I hope. Because I want to use it!
I do think Aria/Arya will climb up, though.

I'm in the same situation, too! Due on August 15th, and husband keeps suggesting new names I don't like... and doesn't seem settled on any of the ones I do! We don't even have an official short list...
I like Raia or Raya as short forms... But it really doesn't matter if people pronounce it wrong in their heads. For instance, take Cassia from the Matched series. I pronounced it "Cass-ia" in my head...

Love Iris, too. Going to try it out again with my husband.

Novaberry, that's a great list. Many of them I love, but won't fly with the husband. I especially love Anastasia, Philippa (Pippa) and Harriet.
My sister used Madeline as a MN--it's been a family...

Vivian is also on my list!
I like Katherine and its variations, but my sister just had a baby named Catherine this year. And my husband's cousin just had a baby named Amelia, so Emilia is out...

Lately I've been thinking a lot about Penelope for our daughter (nn. Pepper or Poppy). I like how the p sounds make it seem fresh and spunky.
Does anyone have other suggestions along these lines?...
