Basil was the first one I thought of and it has more historic meanings, so I lean towards it most from your list, followed by Sorrel (although I'm not sure if the ending makes it sound too feminine)....
Any chance you could be persuaded to use the more traditional spelling-- Anastasia? It's not a common name and I think you will always have to spell it for others. And how do you pronounce it--...
Some of my favorites (including Welsh and some Saxon/old English) that I don't see above are:
Another Rosemary lover here, followed by Verbena and Tansy. Also, what about Ginger or Clove? Although, I guess technically these are spices and not herbs.

Your girls' names are great and I agree that John is a little bland next to them. Is it possible to move John to the mn position? Or, could you go with another form of John-- Evan, Euan, Ian, Sean,...
While I like Jonah Reid, Jonah and Ezra have the same ending so I probably would not use them together. Similarly, Owen and Nathan seem a little similar (although not close enough that I would not...
Congrats-- nice names on your list. I like Thaddeus and Vivienne best too. Some other double-lettered names you might like and work well with Bennett:
Beatrice is the most obvious alternative, but here are some other names that have a similar "feel" to Beatrix:

I voted for Ezra Donovan, but missed that your last name is Italian. With that in mind, I'd probably change my vote to Ezra Valentine as Donovan has a more Celtic vibe to it. Some other...
Henry Birch is really nice-- it has a solid yet whimsical feel to it. Jack Wilder evokes a little too much Jack London/Call of the Wild to me so I'd definitely go with Henry Birch.
Atticus Patrick has a little rhyme, but I like it. Ace is nms, but sure, it could work as a nn. Some other possibilities:
Abram Patrick (nn Abe?)
I don't think Ivy is ruined, but I see how it could be different for you. Some more names like Ivy (either sound/sense and/or with a V):

Samuel is my favorite fn from your list with your sibset-- classic and biblical and doesn't have the same ending as your other children's names.
Charlotte, Lucy, Nathan, Ezra, and
Emily and Gabriella are my favorites from your list.
Some other possibilities:
Emily Jane Am...
Emily Beatrix Am...
Emily Maeve Am...
Emily Helen Am...
Emily Louise Am...
Some great suggestions above. Some other possibilities:
Matilda May (Millie) and
Constance Stella (Connie)
Dorothy Stella (Dottie, Dolly)
Genevieve Stella (Evie)
Rosemary Stella (Rosie)...

Everly Scarlett would be a good combination. Could you use Cora and a combination of Chloe and Orli?
What about one of the following:
Liam, Clara, and
My almost names were Lavinia or Eleanor-- both names I really like!

I'm not keen on Mars as fn for a girl-- it sounds very masculine to me. What about moving it to the middle? Xanthe Mars, Junia Mars, etc. Or, modify it a little to Mara, Maris, Marnie, Marcia,...

Another vote for the simple Merit. I love Verity too. A couple of more suggestions for you-- Constance or Clemence.

Maybe Swan could be the new Wren?
I like Madeline, Claire and Nathan, but would give a slight edge to Nathaniel too. I really like the suggestions of Audrey, Juliet, Henry, Oliver, and Elliott.
Some other possibilities:

Beatrix Eleanor is lovely and the other names you like-- Josephine, Felicity, Henry, and Felix all work well-- although you may not want to do Felix since the ending is the same as Beatrix.

Alice seems a bit close to Elliot, but not too much and I do like Alice as well as Arthur. While don't think there have been any Queens named Alice, there are a lot of princesses and I'm sure...

I like Cora and it's a classic. Carrie or Cory might fit more with your naming style though. What about:
Tommy, Billy, Johnny, Jolie, and
