I thought of Muffy, used as nn for Mary on "Arthur." Probably not what a hip 13-year-old is looking for though. Could go with a foreign translation of Mary, like Maria, Marie, or Moira. (Or even...

Let's see...Jasper, Shepard, and...
Kelly (I know, it's rather boring, but it's a unisex surname)
Esme (Because it's rather unique...

Taylor's always been truly unisex for me, as well as Jordan. I think both could be revived as entirely masculine though, based on their sound.
Brett I rather like on a girl, though I haven't...
I've bolded ones I particularly like.
Sebastian - It has the same old-fashioned-but-not-your-grandma's-name feel as Viola. Also has the three syllables you're looking for. Also, Seb and Baz are...

I've bolded ones I particularly like.
Robin Lysander - not bad, but it's a lie soft-sounding, especially for a boy
Edmund Ludwig - a lot of "d" sound, making it heavy, and both names being...
As for your current list:
Haden - Eh. You hear Aiden/Kaden/Haden/Everything-en too much these days.
Keiran - Rather Irish for Brantley or Leighton.
Deacon - Not bad. Just be aware that the...

That it's a Biblical name, and then a really evil character in North and South, and then I remember that his name is actually Elkanah or something like that.
Everly Maple and Isaac Wilder (though I love the name Caleb, Isaac Wilder just sounds so lovely!)

I've bolded names I particularly like.
Rosamund, Elowen, and...
Adeline - One of my favorites, so I'm biased :) same number of syllables, same down to earth feeling. Great nn potential with...
We had a Pembroke Welsh Corgi up the street from us named Odie (even though she was a girl) and her brother the cat was named Garfield :) That aside, I always thinking picking the weirder names for...
I voted for Benson Merrill, but I think Orson Merrill sounds even better (plus, I really like the nickname Orry :) )
Well, my favorite book is The Mysteries of Udolpho, a Gothic classic. Unfortunately, the names are very boring: the heroine is Emily, her maid is Annette, there's a servant Theresa, and the...
I love Anwen too! My mother certainly isn't a fan of that one...
I'm from the US, and I'd say "ee-van-thee." (Though that first "ee" is kind of like a "eh" - I said it a few times and it would come out either way) This, however, is only due to the fact that I am...

I've bolded ones I particularly like/recommend:
Endora - I actually rather like this! It reminds me of one of my favorite names, Andorra. I think it's easy to spell, wear, and pronounce,...

Laurence Kipling has a nice ring to it. But I'm not sure how well that goes with Kellen. Depends on how you feel about sibsets.

Violet - A brown haired girl wearing purple; soft spoken and kind (I also think of Violet Alden from The Boxcar Children)
Eloise - Blue-eyed girl not yet over her baby fat; spunky and cranky (Think...
No one's yet suggested Natalie - although "Nattie" would be more phonetically correct, "Nettie" could work just fine.
I just started a new blog, and I've dubbed Fridays "First Name Fridays" so I can cater to my namenerd tendencies :) Right now, I'm going through my old lists one name at a time and...

@lawsonhaley - When I think Doris, I think of one of my grandmother's unseen friends (she has a lot of friends I've never seen or I mix up with each other - Leah, Doris, Irene, etc.) so I find that...

Is it the sound? The origin? The "genre" (old lady, saint name, etc.)? While all these are important factors in choosing a name, what is the absolute number one criterion for you?
For me, it's...
I've bolded the ones I particularly like.
Dafna Jane - I see and hear "daft," but if you don't live in England, that shouldn't be a huge problem
Livna Jane - I keep wanting to say "Livia," but...

I don't usually get my name misspelled, so I can't really relate.
I have started something fun, though - give the cashier at coffee places, etc. a name on your top ten for your order. See how...
I don't think Alair looks misspelt; I think people might pause and ask spelling, though (ie, Allair or Alare...) but you'll get that on any unusual name.
Personally, I think Alastair or Alaric, so...
Edna Josephine sounds great to me!
