My favorites are Delphine, Daphne, Dorothea, and Desdemona. Lately I've had a crush on Dinah.
I'm going against the grain and voting for Louisa. I know Matilda is a Nameberry darling, but I like the look, feel, and sound of Louisa so much better! Matilda always sounded kind of harsh to me.
I really love Cary on a boy! I think it sounds so handsome and boyish. I agree with the others, though, that something is off about Cary Dean; sounds too much like Carradine or Carridee. I like that...
I think it sounds out of place. I love Violet and Frances together, though, and think Hazel or Clara could make a nice third. June would also be divine, but if you wanted something with a little bit...
I like them all, but my favorite is Cecilia. It's very gentle, sweet, feminine, but still has a strength about it. The meaning doesn't bother me at all. I interpret it as a good blindness, like how...
How do you pronounce Sianan? I'm an American in Australia and I've mispronounced my poor student's name twice in a row now. I really thought I had it the second time! I thought the first half was...

I think they all work really well together, and they're pretty names. If it were me, I'd change it up just a little bit:
Clara Elodie - I'm just not a big fan of Elodie. I think Eleanor is a much...
I love your choices!
I like Fern Catherine the best. Fern Evangeline is nice, but Fern is so uncommon that if she wanted something more 'normal,' she could always fall back on Cate or Catherine....
I really like Amity. I personally don't love it enough to use in the first spot, but in the middle, I think it makes a really refreshing virtue name choice. I think it feels colonial and modern at...

Freya: Lovely, feminine, not overly frilly.
Brighid: I like Birgit and variations of Bridget, but I'm not familiar with this spelling. I'm kind of intrigued though.
Maeve: Really understated with...

Jordan is friendly and sporty, with a hidden artistic side. She experimented with hair colors in the past, but has comfortably settled into a lovely chestnut brown...for now. Her eyes are not large,...

Here are a few suggestions based on your criteria:

I really have a soft spot for Harper. It conjures up such a lovely image to me without being overly feminine (or masculine) that I can really see why it's so popular. I'll be shocked if it's not in...

@lawsonhaley, We have such similar taste in names that this is going to be hard!
Eleanor - one of my all-time favorites. If I had a daughter tomorrow, I'd probably use this.
Lavinia - I...

I think today I'd go with...
Wilhelmina Benedetta Pearl & Adelaide Violetta Rue
I quite like Alma but the others I can't really bring myself to like, though I really want to. Alma has the right sweet, vintage feel, ready for rediscovery like Mabel and Edith. She fits in with...

I'm from the Midwest and I switch between Ts and Ds for a T. I would say 'bedder' for better, but I'd say Lottie like lot-ee, like I say the Ts in latte, haha.
Casimir Ignatius & Violetta Cosima

Audrey Jolene - Too close to Asher
Autumn Jolene - Autumn is too dated
Clara Jolene - A little L heavy but it's nice. Cara Jolene would be another option.
Corrine Jolene - Corinne isn't bad, maybe...

Finola is stunning, sounds so elegant as Finola Blythe, fits your not-popular criterium, has six letters, and sounds wonderful with your boys' names. I think it's a winner all around! Miriam would be...

I vote Grace Alice or Alice Grace for the reasons others have mentioned. Zoe Alice was also a great recommendation.
I love them both, but I'd be worried people would mistake Ariadne for Adrian/Adrienne/Adriana too often. That would tip the scales in favor of Artemis for me.

My favorite with Beatrice nn Birdie (which is so lovely!) is Benedetta. It has a similar meaning as Beatrice but a distinct, yet classic sound. It's also a little softer than Bernadette. I like...

I often don't like super contrived longer forms paired with short forms, e.g., "We're naming her Charlotte but calling her Ava" kind of thing. Or trying really hard to "get to" some other name. For...
