These are my favorite Ancient Roman and Late Roman names that I could see myself actually using. Which are your favorites? I put alternatives in brackets.
Aelia/Aeliana (I feel like this might be...
The Monroe Family
Nathaniel Luca + Louisa Rose
Stella Vivienne / Charlotte Aleah
Tristan Xavier / Ruby Elizabeth
I'm not a fan of Ezekiel. It's not a bad name, it just doesn't do it for me. Ezekiel Justus and Ezekiel Howard are my favorite combos listed.
I think Zadok is really cool! I like Zadok Alexander....

One nickname I didn't see mentioned (could have missed it) is Wat/Watt. Wat was actually a medieval short form of Walter but I think it would be suitable on a modern child.
I love Henry and...
I'm over 27 but have never heard of that movie!
Even with Kim and Kanye naming their daughter North, I still feel like it's a boys name.
I'm American and did think of the school shooting first but I also thought of the flower (which is really pretty!). While the shooting was tragic, I do think it's still usable as a first name,...
Belle is so refreshing! A friend of mine from high school named her daughter Belle. Belle's middle name is Marie (mom's middle name).
I want to love Seraphina because of its relationship to seraphim. Seraphina feels too frilly for me but I do like the nickname Sera.

Do it! You won't regret it and I'm sure your daughter will love the fact that her name honors her heritage!
I think Rowena is really pretty! I prefer it over Rowan for a girl (but I love Rowan for a boy). Ro would be a cute nickname.
Evangeline Pearl, without a doubt.
Apollonia is definitely usable. I think I prefer Apolline, too.

I like Sullivan! It's familiar yet not too common.
I like Moses William and Josiah Shepherd. I would prefer Abram Levi to Abraham Levi.
John, it's such a classic. George has a dated feel to me, even though I know it isn't.
I prefer Brandon. Brian is very 70's to me and Brandon is dated, but not as bad, IMO.
Roxanne is definitely usable. If you're concerned about the song though, I think Roxana is just different enough that it wouldn't have as many "like the song" comments.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one!
The Beckett Family
Josiah Winton + Cecilia Evangeline
Benjamin Elijah / Samuel Isaiah
Marcus Leopold / Cassandra Violet
Alice Kennedy / Amelia...
All of this.
Octavia! I really don't care for the meaning but it could have a worse meaning, too. I do like the name's association with the Romans and the nickname Tavi.
Linnea is pretty but I feel that it...
Francis. If you love Frank, I think it would be a nice nickname for Francis!
I think the original spelling makes the most sense.

I prefer Cyrus Benjamin because I'm not a fan of Gregory.
Like youssarian said, the Ava pronunciation is acceptable. Eva is pronounced like Ava in most (all?) of Europe.
