    Curtis and Hannah are both clear-gendered, so I'd right away want to rule out Hadley, Hailey, and Harley - they're so unisex they feel out of place. They also share the starting sound with Hannah...

    I agree, I think the name is shooting up the popularity charts and the model has done a lot to normalize it. I teach and have known a few girls of different ages with the name and I don't think it's...

    Traditionally it was a nickname for Mary or Margaret. Would either of those work? Or a variant like Marie, Maria, Margot, Marguerite? Or stretch it further to Rosemary, Anne-Marie, Amabel.

    It's pronounced differently, but I also wonder if Amabel is an option for you? Amabel also fits with Charlie and Tilly (nn Ammy?)? and then Amabel Margaret is less alliterative.

    Clara is more my style but Mabel is perfectly sweet and nice and goes better with the siblings. Mabel itself is kind of a nod to Margaret through the Mae nickname. I think Mabel Margaret is totally...

    I think Zali is much more unusual than Mila or Luna. I'd encourage you to go with one of them since they are more aligned with each other; I'd think they would be to your other girls as well. Zali...

    Hi!

    Congrats!

    Charlotte - lovely name that'd go well with the siblings. It comes from the same ultimate route as Caroline, but on the other hand you clearly have tie ins with your children's...

    Total honesty - none of these names is terrible but here's what I'm really thinking:

    Annabel - the bel is clunky and extra. I tend to find B clunky. Anna is a nice name.
    Beatrice - I like the...

    I agree with what another poster said about avoiding an -a ending, an ee ending works well with your last name but is matchy with the sister. I might go for an n ending, while still wanting...

    Winter - a pretty image name, I do think this name will feel tied to this time period as she ages, and it also evokes a lot of "cold" imagery which might be a disadvantage? Like if she has a cool...

    Another vote for Lucy! Fits better and better flow with your last name. Lorelei is very pretty in a different sort of way, and like a PP I encourage you to consider the Lorelei spelling if you do go...

    Amelie, Violet, and Esme are nice names with the best flow with Fenna Elizabeth. Cora Fenna Elizabeth is solid but Cora Fenna is a little sing-songy. Olive Fenna kind of blurs into each other, the...

    Willa - nice name. Would pair well with any sibling who were a little vintage-y, or even just relatively simple names.

    M is a name that tolerates alliteration well, and I'm not one to say never give siblings the same initial. But the same first three letters is a lot.
