Vasilisa, the way that you've described the prn, evokes too much vasoline. Does this name have history? I think I'm familiar with Vasila or Vasilia, like Basila or Basilia, Vasil/Basil for boys, but...

Live in the NE US, friends about the country and can think of 3 Abby's who may be Abigail's and 1 who goes by Abigail. Ages roughly 10, 6, 4, and 2. Pretty popular but the nickname seems trendier...
Hmmm. I love the family connection and it certainly fits with a certain vintage style that's in. Essie gets a lot of love on this board lately. But I always recommend a fuller name as an option, I...
I think you are on the right track that Lynn is a little too plain, and the structure of Brielle is good. With an -a at the end of Francesca you want something both beginning and ending in a...
Since you like Elly and Lenora, and I didn't see it specifically on the don't like list, what about Eleonora? Eliora is another somewhat similar option.
I also think you could go with Lenora and...
Clementine and Zola work. For a spin on that - Clementine and Azelie may work better, Azelie could be nn'd Zelie which is a little close to Zola. But if Zola's in the dreams, and you want to use...
Dency (not sure how I feel about that, but cuter than Denny!)

Kind of harsh and heavy, especially with the Attolia spelling, maybe reminds me of Attila. I like the look of Ae in names, but it works in few actual names, maybe Laetitia?
It's interesting you said Maven because Maeve was the first to come to mind.
I think in general you might do well with lots of surnames that end with an EE sound?
That last sound tends to be...
Hmm. Eustace grounds it, if in an unattractive way, and it kind of fits an Astoria kind of trend faintly, and old lady names starting with E like Edith and Ethel. But I just hear "You stole"....I...
Pretty darn old....revitalized a bit if I think about the full name Edna St Vincent Millay.
Also really loving Ada Vivienne.

Lilian fits in their well, although maybe you want to avoid two N endings with Caroline? Judith and Edith come to mind, Edith strikes me as a great fit with those potential sisters.
Noemi is better.
I think whatever name you pick you actually won't have to explain it every time. If you introduce her verbally, and as she gets older and introduces herself verbally, people will hear it and be able...
For me it was a tough call between Eden and Simone. I second the above thoughts on Eden, but like the sound of Simone a little better, and Simone has a Biblical tie in too. Greta works pretty well...
They are both very pretty and very useable. I find Alina Hazel a little more interesting and fun.
I think Romilly is very familiar in the UK, and in the US feels pretty odd, strange, unfamiliar. I like the sound enough although I wouldn't use it. I think it's useable if someone loves it.
Nina : D. My mom used to call me that. Don't think it was a name she really considered for me, and has nothing to do with my name, Jessica - I think it was that we lived in a Spanish speaking...
A great set of three sisters! I like Esther best for the Biblical figure and meaning, then Martha for similar reasons, then Olive - Olive's a fine name but it always makes me think of the food before...
Margot - favorite!
Audrey - like quite a bit, maybe limited by no nn potential? Could be a good thing too.
Maud - I just think this will get lots of negative reactions in life.
Petra - I like it,...
I see that you're trying for a fusion similar to Anneliese but I'm not sure it works. Margolies and similar spellings are pretty common surnames, like the actress Julianna Margulies or Marjorie...
