I love Macsen nn Mac! Really handsome! I tried my best to get my husband to agree to a name that could end up with Mac nn and he wouldn't - but then we had girls anyway so it didn't really matter....
Gabrielle and Gabriella seem dated to me and I really don't like Gabby. Annabel is lovely, as is Isabel. I prefer the more streamlined spelling of both.
I love Griffin. I also really like Xander - if it were me, I would name him Xander not Alexander nn Xander. I think Xander just fits better with your style - it feels more akin to Barrett than...
I like Elliott best with the girls' names. Both Patrick and Grayson flow well; Elliott Arden is hard to say imo and both names are sometimes used for girls.
BTW, is your daughter's name...
Leila, Lila and Lea are a bit too close to Eli in my opinion. Olivia Noor is beautiful, as is Thandie Noor or Thandie May.
Abigail, Isabel and:
While Easton is trendier, I like the sound of it. Emmett is being used for girls now too, which I don't like, and with the Em beginning it seems more pervasive with Emily/Emma being so popular for...
I agree Jenna can sound a little dated. But Jane is just so plain to me, I really don't get the love for her.
I agree that Owen and Audrey are great. Other girl suggestions if you worry Owen may be left out (I would also avoid N ending so Emily isn't left out):

I like Colette a lot and Cole and Coco offer different type nicknames depending on what kind of child she is. I think it goes with Brynn very nicely.
I also like Isla, Ivy and Juno from previous...

I love Annabel (Nell is adorable!) as a sister to Juliet. Flora is one of my favorites also. I just don't care for the sounds of Elvira, Erminie and Clotilda - they sound heavy and plodding next to...
I like River (but never really considered it unisex...). I don't like the two nature names and two word names together though. And pp who said it sounds like an old west saloon - that's exactly...

What a thoughtful naming process! I think you have great choices here. My favorite is Lilia Marley called Lilou. Your moms get the middle name honorific like your dads did with Presley; Lilia is a...

Sylvie is lovely! It's not any more nickname-y than Sophie rather than Sophia which I think is pretty accepted as a full name. It really goes well with Colin - good choice!

I like Lola as a nn for Caroline and Mae for Margaret.
I like Iris on your list

Ella and little sister:
Sadie (I second this suggestion)
pp's idea of Tess as a nickname is brilliant! I never would have thought of that but it's my new favorite way to get to Tess!
I don't really like Esther even though it's the kind of name I...

I voted Ruby Celeste, it is just beautiful (theme or not). I like Ella and don't think it's too much of a stretch for Eleanor but I don't like Ella Ruby, I think it's too much beatles. If there...
In your position, I would only use Cadence if there was a nickname that I loved too. Caddie is a cute one imo but isn't as natural as Cady. But you really have to love the nickname as much as the...
I think it's just as versatile as Ruby. I love it with sister Piper too, good choice! Posy Bliss is maybe a little too much, even just because they are both word names. I think Posy Eve is pretty...
I agree with pp, Willa Mae sounds too much like a stereotypical bumpkin kind of name. There aren't really any great longer forms for Willa either. Might there be another way to honor your mom? -...
I like Elizabeth best from your choices. Caitlin and all her variations seem overdone to me. Catherine is ok but not as pretty as Amelia imo. I think you can easily avoid Liz/Lizzie if you have...
I love Rory, alone or as a nn. My favorite full names for it are Rosalie/Rosemary and Lorelei. Caroline might work too.
Jack and Jill was my first thought upon reading the title of your post. I would honor your grandfather by putting Jack in the middle or by using some other first name that is related to him.
