I think the majority of (new) parents simply aren't in contact with a lot of children in their daily lives, at least not until their kids start school. So many still think the names they grew up with...

Yes. Names are part of our cultural heritage; in a Western context, that includes names from Greek-Roman Mythology and Christianity. To me, even names like Christian, Amadeus, Theodore are...
I think Niamh Eva / Neve Eva would make more sense to get the nickname Nevaeah. Neve "Neveah" Lastname is logical to me, even with a different middle name. Otherwise, in school she would appear as...

What about Finley Finnian Jon, Finnegan Jon, Fintan Jon or Phineas Jon, with the nickname Finn?

Looking at statistics, it's clear that Elizabeth's popularity is in fact slowly going down. @dearestjules, in 2001, Elizabeth was #9 and given to 0.747% of baby girls; in 2013, it was #10 but given...

Statistically Elizabeth is relatively popular but it's so timeless and versatile that it doesn't really matter, IMO. Furthermore, as people have mentioned, I suspect that most little girls legally...
Robin Leo and Mavis Rose have 6 kids (you pick the genders), who all have avian first names. All the girls have Rose...

Mary is a classic that totally transcends religion. No more religious than John or Elizabeth are, and it has lots of interesting namesakes (Shelley, Woolstonecraft, Blair, Lincoln).
People have already given you so many wonderful suggestions, so I'll just go with more general advice: read, read a lot, especially good books! I strongly recommend Stephen King's "On Writing"...

I think Philip, nickname Pip, is lovely. What about Filippa or Philippine (Pippa, Pippy) instead of Philippa?
I think using a Ph- name would the best way to keep the tradition.

Cecily, by far. Such a lovely, underused, unexpected classic.
Cecelia is an ugly misspelling of the nice, but a little bland Cecilia.
Since this is a novel maybe you could do a little play with words. My first thought was Sunday and Dominic (whose Spanish form is Domingo, which means Sunday in Spanish). Or something use something...
I don't think anyone can claim ownership of family names, be it first or middle. If you loved "Granny Mary" I don't see why you should not be allowed to name your baby after her just because your...

I think it's a lovely idea!
Bee/Bea, Beya, Baya, Bebe, Billy, Baby Bea, Bannie?
Hermione Rose is gorgeous! Much more interesting than her other ideas (although all her names are lovely). She could also use Hemma or Hemmie as nicknames (similar to Emma and Gemma).

I guess my answer would depend on how you are pronouncing the names. I prefer any pronunciation of Elena to Katerina as [kat-rina]. However I prefer [ka-teh-rina] to [el-ena] and [e-leh-na]. I can't...

I'm going against the majority here and say I like it. To be honouring is super important when it comes to naming. Personally I'd prefer Valerie-Anne, simply because it looks cleaner and more...
