Personally, I'm not a fan of the nn Flo for Florence - I prefer Florrie. Though I do think Cora and Florence are a bit matchy-matchy since they start with similar sounds (cor/flor).

Natalia, all the way.
Rose (underutilized as a first name, IMO)
...I prefer the last two as middle names though.
I love both names - great choices! I went with Eliza, mostly for the exact same reason as @catloverd mentioned, but also because it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady and I just love her...
I love the name Isadora! Isabetta and Isabeau look made up to me, and Issa just feels a bit short.
I second Ari as a nn, plus Aurelia is pronounced "aw-reel-ya" so the "ray" part of the nn throws me off (though people have all kinds of nn's so whatever floats your boat...).

If you're unsure of Beatrix, how do you feel about the more traditional Beatrice?
If your husband doesn't like Sylvia, how about Sylvie? If he doesn't like Pearl, how about Margaret or...
Calliope, Calais, and Isabeau aren't really my style. Isabeau sounds made up to me, even though it isn't. I do, however, love June and Lark. I've been crushing on Lark (and Wren) pretty hard...

Caroline, Nicholas, and:
Vivienne (I tend to prefer this spelling, however I think Vivian may work better with the sibset...just a thought)
Annabelle (prefer Annabel, as others have mentioned) ...

I was never one of those little girls who dreamt of getting married and becoming a mom. It's only over the last few years that I've really reconsidered my position and come to realize that it is...

I love Aria and Anabelle, in that order. I think they flow the best with Grace.
Arden is one of my faves!! I like it for the Shakespeare connection (it was his mother's surname) but, either way, it's a great name.
Some other suggestions:
Eleanor (Ormerod, British...
1. Eden July “Edie” - I like Edie but not the rest.
2. Eliana Beth “Elie” - This one's just okay to me.
3. Mia Everleigh - I like Mia and I like Everly (spelled like this) but not together. It...
I kind of feel like Sutton/Siena and Scarlett/Sloane are mismatched. Siena and Scarlett are girly, while Sutton and Sloane are more unisex or non-gender specific. Have you thought about switching...
I love the Beatles theme - such a cool idea!! And I love the names you've chosen for your littlest ones.
Astrid (Cleve, Swedish chemist)
Clara (Immerwahr, German chemist)
Dorothy (Lavinia Brown, American surgeon/Crowfoot Hodgkin, British X-ray crystallographer/Wrinch, British mathematician and...
JB (probably to stand for Jacob Byron or something similar) - I like Byron... not a fan of using initials as a NN though.
Gino - When I first saw it, I pronounced it as "gyno" as in...
Dorothy is such a classic and beautiful name. It's on my top five, for sure. I don't think it's too "old lady"; rather, I think it's a name that she'll easily grow into and that will work at any...
To be honest, when I first saw it, I thought it was a made-up name. If you're looking for names with similar meanings (sea), I would suggest Maren or Marina.

@ninanoo - The original poster has it listed as a girl's name, and it does sound very dainty and feminine to me so I would have to agree.

Please, please don't go for Benoit. I don't mean this to come across as me knocking anyone's suggestions, but "ben wah balls" are used for sexual stimulation.
I have to say, I love the NNs you listed. "Cricket" reminds me of those old dolls with the tape player in her back. I was obsessed with mine when I was little. :)
About the Forrest Gump...
I agree 100%! I still remember reading a post months ago on Finnish names and the name Lumi stuck out like a sore thumb. It means "snow" and I am absolutely obsessed with it. It's so...
