Athena Claire is lovely. Athena is on my own list. Strength and beauty, can't be beat! I think you have good mn choices, balancing the accessible yet bold Athena with something simple and classic.
I love the name Calla. It is on my short list. Also from your list:
Lila -- lie-luh prn.
Other thoughts (hopefully not too many repeats):
I think Aurora / Rory sounds very nice with Brianna / Bria. Rosette would come in second.
Rosalie is my favorite and my favorite with Aubrielle. I do agree that Elise is a bit singsongy with Rosalie, but it's lovely nonetheless.
Thanks everyone! I do love the name, and while it wouldn't keep from using the name because I do adore it and find it quite vintage, sweet & spunky, once that connection was made it nagged.
I had a crazy landlord named Rena (ree-nuh), so that's what comes to mind with that. Rena Arwen doesn't have the best flow for me. I think it is the heavy "R" presence and R is already a very strong...
So having been around kids with all kinds of names (normal and not), I've come to realize that any name is teasable. It doesn't matter if it's obvious or not or even makes sense. If one kid wants to...
I agree with the others. I don't hear Hail Mary at all, though the flow is off. Honestly, kids will find something to tease another about if they want to -- whether it is obvious or not. (for...
Evangeline, Genevieve and Theodosia from your list would make a great match for Cordelia. I also like the sound of
Cordelia & Lucienne
Cordelia & Araminta
Cordelia & Jemima
I'm going to say yes. Even if a lot of people don't make the connection, some will and then it might be awkward. That said, many people don't even know other people's middle names so that's something...
Amelia Pearl -- darling. Also love Mila
Ella -- though mega-popular as a full name and nickname.
Charlotte -- cute. Actually really enjoy Charlie as a nn.
Isabel -- A very popular...
I think it's a lovely name! Has a great, ancient but not overly complicated sound to it. There would be spelling and pronunciation issues obviously, but I think it has such a unique and appealing...
Saoirse is a hard one to come up with nicknames for! Zuzu could work, though it's not exactly intuitive and it's sounds a little odd. The only one that automatically comes to mind is Cici.
McKinley -- I am originally from Alaska so have a strong association with this one, which makes me stray from liking it as a name for a person. That said, this isn't an uncommon name for Alaskans to...
Agree with this. :)
Damaris Josephine sounds the best to me, or Damaris Eve. I know that theses are saints names, though I don't know much about any of them, here are some thoughts!
Damaris Thais ...
Lalita -- reminds me of Lolita, which wouldn't be an issue if it didn't have such a strong association to Nabokov's novel.
Ariadne -- I'm not a fan of this name overall. While it's fun to say and...
I would be very tempted to use Io and Luna as twin girls -- both (among other things) are also the names of moths. I love both names and this subtle connection between the two. I'm terrible with...
I think both work well with Caroline. Obviously Caroline and Emma just "click" and make sense (too predictable maybe?), but I also find that Caroline and Rowan compliment each other and enjoy the...

Eloise & Ivy is very cute IMO. Both names are familiar / established but uncommon. Alexandra is pretty but also quite common -- at least from my experience -- if you want to stay away from that so my...
I find that I prefer Eva as a nickname for Evangeline, rather than just Eva. Ava I adore and think it deserves its popularity. Both have a very lovely simplicity to them that I find charming.
I think Azaria & Athena sound great together. Both have a very womanly strength to them. Also
Azaria & Amaliya
Azaria & Aminta / Araminta
Azaria & Alethea / Althea
Azaria & Amadea -- Also a...
Doesn't work for me either. There are some lovely feminizations of Andrew. I also think that while this gives you two great nicknames, realistically you'll only use one or the other so it might be...
I love the name Eva and have considered it myself. I don't automatically think of Eve when I hear Eva, though I also think that Eve is very pretty. It is from Hebrew chavah and chayah which means "to...
