Sandra Baker McGovern —*the obvious choice, easier to explain to everyone, and for a number of pratical reasons it's just better to stay with your maiden name.
I also like Sandra Alice McGovern...

Ariana Grace and Oliver Seth.

Frankly, this is a non-issue. Charlotte is a classic, well-known name and the other couple doesn't own it. If they worried about their daughter sharing her name they would have picked something more...
Poll: not at all.

I would spell it Everette on a girl — a simple, not too fanciful way of making the name gender specific (the -ette suffix usually denotes feminine). You could do Everetta or Everitte, too.
It has potential; it certainly fits with the current short/very feminine trend and is similar to many currently-popular names (Mia, Ava, Olivia, Lily, Emily, Ella). I don't think Mila Kunis will...
I think it's fine. After all, men name their children after themselves all the time and no-one accuses them of being self-centered.
If you want to get technical, Lucy and Luca aren't even the same...

Henry, Harry, Enzo, Emery, Emeric, Hendry, Hendrick, Harriet, Henrietta, Enrica, Enriqueta, Harrison, Harris, Hendry, Hendrix, and all the names in "Henry" family.

Your boys have ultra classic, timeless, no-nonsense names, so I wouldn't venture too far from that. Catherine would be absolutely perfect here (and you could call her Kit, Kitty, Kaylie, Kai, Kaia,...
I second Kaylia or Kaylea as the cleaner, most stylish options. Another idea is to go with a double name, like Kay-Leah, Kae-Leah, or Kay-Lia.

It's a non-issue, don't worry. Think of Sam Mendes or Samuel Morse. Wikipedia also lists people named Sam McDowell, Sam Maguire, and Sam McCallum. Don't over think it!

To be honest I love all of the names. I voted for William, just because I love when family names get passed on.
I think Henry is so classic that popularity doesn't really matter, but it does feel...
Maybe it you spelt Lio, or used an O middle name. Julian Oliver "Lio" could work.

A good example of how Naming sites come up with fanciful meanings for names. Caleb means "dog" — which they interpret as meaning "faithful", since dogs symbolize loyalty. Dylan means "great flow" —...
It's pronounced mah-lou (the first syllable as in "father"). I think it's usable in the US, though it might get mispronounced a lot. There's also Milou and Lilou, if you want something unexpected but...

Caddy was used by Charles Dickens I believe. Caia/Kaia is the Scandinavian nickname. Also Calla, Cazzy, Charly, Lolly, and more depending on the middle name: Cammy (Caroline Mary?), Cappy (Caroline...

Rule 1: NEVER use Nameberry (or many "baby name sites") for meanings! Use an etymological dictionary (like Oxford's First Names) or BehindtheName.com (the only comprehensive, trustworthy name site)....
or maybe something creative like Joshuanne, Joshuelle, Joshuette?
All those names are actually pretty nice!
Some alternatives (avoiding repeats):
Mary —*May, Miriam, Marian, Marion, Maureen, Mariel, Malia, Mairwen, Mara, Marianna, Marlene, Marise | Marius or...

I think Wolf / Wolfe works just fine as a stand-alone name.
Wolfston / Wulfstan
Wolfrey / Wolfryd
Gemma and Sienna are to rhymey, in my opinion.
Gemma and Celia
Gemma and Sophia
Gemma and Nova
Gemma and Eleanor
Gemma and Beatrice
Gemma and Olivia
Gemma and Livia
Gemma and Georgia
I like the suggestions of Everly, Ellery, Bellamy, and Hadley.
A unisex (but somewhat girly) name ending in -y, with a nickname:
