I love Juliet Drew and Juliet May, but Julia sounds rather dated to my ears. As for suggestions, how about Josephine, Josie, June, Juna, Junia, Jessamine, Jessamy, and Jessenia?
Clara Karen is too much of the same sound, especially with a C- last name. How about Lara, Lyra, Mara, or Maia?
Top 3 from your list, in order of preference:
I think of Reagan, the dreadful President.
Unless you're adopting at birth - which it doesn't sound like you are - then your son already has a name. Period. And Seven is just silly.
With Henry and Oliver, Felix would be perfect!

Aria Rosalind or Aria Lorelei (can't choose!)
Phaedra Seraphine or Phaedra Lorelei (sorry - once again, both equally lovely!)
The A- beginning of Ann runs together with the -a ending of Gemma, Willa, Nova, and Mira, so if your heart is set on using Ann as a middle, I'd nix those. Of the remaining names, I would choice...

I know a girl named Olympia. She goes by the much less fussy nn Oly. I quite like both. Hermione, on the other hand, is unusable.

I'll take a page from @namesage's book and list only the weird/wild/whimsical OTT names I'd actually consider using.
Clementine (finally starting...

Margot Eliza (Maggie doesn't really make sense as a nn)
Edith Johanna, nn Edie
Susanna Blair, nn Zanna
Eve Johanna, nn Evie
Ramona Blair (LOVE)
Philadelphia is absolutely unusable.
Exactly. My first thought is Reagan, aka the president who let millions of people die of AIDS. Might as well just call the poor kid Nixon.
Margaret Mary Rose
Absolutely not! It's all boy, and very handsome.
Tacky, trashy, trendy, silly, and instantly dated. Poor kid.
Alice, Bianca, Cordelia, Delilah, Eloise, Faye, Geneva, Hazel, Iris, Juniper, Katherina, Lucinda, Matilda, Nova, Orli, Phaedra, Quintana, Ramona, Sylvie, Thea, Ursula, Violet, Wren, Xiomara,...
All of these names are strong, lovely classics that remain distinctive despite their popularity.
Thanks, everyone! Opinion seems pretty divided. Any other Berries want to offer up their votes/thoughts?
I've got Aster on the brain. She's a star and a flower, combining my two major categories of name obsession (astronomical and botanical). She's also rare, given to only a handful of girls a year, but...
Matilda, nn Tilde
Alice (unusable with my last name, alas)
Marigold, nn Maggie
Lucinda, nn Indie
Boys names for girls. Still trendy, trashy, try-hard, and sexist.
How about Fanchon?
