Cleo (not sure why, but apparently I'm feeling C names for you!)
I don't think they're too similar for an aunt and niece. For sisters, yes. And I agree that it might seem like a tribute to your sister since it looks quite similar to her name.
My husband, who is most definitely not a name nerd, found the name Araya (on a woman) while wandering around on the internet and is really liking it. I'm curious about it - the Nameberry listing says...

I would use Charlotte if I already had a Caroline, but only if Charlotte was my absolute favourite name and I couldn't imagine using anything else. It would annoy me that they're both feminizations...
I think Tess Penelope Kate is lovely. Personally I would probably go with Tessa Penelope Kate, but if Tess is your favourite part I do think it still works.
Semi-off-topic: this summer I read "The...
I don't see why not. I would stay away from adding an "h" to Alana/Alanna, since Kairi is likely to be misspelled constantly and Peyton has a variety of spellings too. But saying it out loud, I do...
I love it. Ramona is heavier and Violet is sharper/lighter - great contrast. The rhythm is lovely and it sounds great with Theodore Patrick. (I love to see people use Ramona because it's one of my...
I have Araminta on a fantasy list for if I somehow decided I didn't need my theoretical future children's middle names to honour family members. Realistically, I highly, highly doubt I'll ever use...
I haven't happened upon baby names on Pinterest, but I can report that Cyndal is unrelated to Kendall - Namberry says it's a variation on Cindy - I've always assumed it comes from Cynthia. (Of...

I think of it as a boy name too - I associate it with Lennox Lewis, the boxer.
With a daughter named Nila, I'd avoid another name with a prominent long "i" sound, which would knock out Aya, Caia, Ivy and Heidi. They'd sound too similar to me.
My favourites from your list are...
Isabel - beautiful, zesty, classic name. I know it's been very popular but I'm never disappointed to see it get used.
Elise - love this. I find it very sleek but not unapproachably so.
Off-topic: when I first glanced at this post, I misread it as saying, "I come from Scandinavia and I am SO Hispanic." It was pretty confusing and now funny. ANYWAY.
My parents aren't from...
Calista (nn Callie?)
Corrina (nn Cora?)
Felicity! This might be my favourite for you!
Norah (maybe on its own, maybe as a nn for Eleanor)
Not sure how close an alternate you're looking for, but the first one that comes to mind is Sidonie / Sidony.
I've met adults named Molly and the name has never struck me as too cutesy for them. Honestly, I have trouble picturing some names on adults, but if I met an adult (especially someone I perceived as...
Theoretically Daley on a girl shouldn't be a far leap because of Haley's popularity and the fact that Dale is a unisex name, but I think because it's a surname it sounds more masculine to me. (I know...

To be honest with you, none of the names on your list is my style at all. I don't mind Salem as a middle name, but Corona only makes me think of the beer even though I know it's a word outside of...
I really like Cora, Leila and Willa! They're current but they have a lot of history, and they're feminine without being frilly. Also they seem complete - although Cora and Willa are sometimes used as...

I don't think it's "too far out there" - heaven knows girls are being given boy names all over the place, and Evan Rachel Wood has to some extent normalized Evan for a girl. I do agree with pps,...
I agree that Eden and Arden are too matchy. Also since Arden rhymes with "garden" the "Garden of Eden" link seems too strong.
Edited to add: you might like Aria!
Are you aware that Caroline comes from the same root as Charlotte? If your grandfather's name is Charles, either Caroline or Charlotte would honour him and you can just pick the one you like better....

My first guess would be MAR-juh-lain. My second guess would be MAR-juh-lyne. I would not be surprised at all to find out it was MAR-juh-leen or that the "J" is supposed to be pronounced as "Y".
As a rule I'd say no, but some cases are a lot worse than others. My brother's name is similar to Ewan Morrison, and I don't think it sounds bad, but I think that's because a) the names have...

I don't have children, but I think my plan would be to go in with a few options and hope to get a feeling when I met them. If neither my husband or I got a feeling and we...
