I actually really like Nanette. I haven't heard it much before, though I know a couple of Annettes. I think it could be fresh paired with the right mn.
When I saw the thread title I assumed it was a French variant of Olivia. I think it's really pretty.
Lina - that's the one I would choose!
Thirded! I love Adele as a first name and agree that this solves the 'El el' problem nicely.
I just remembered, I know an Isatta.
Ooh, I didn't think of Betty, Bessie, or Birdie!
Isolde is my favourite, but I also found:
I feel like it's a bit too twee as a whole name, so I'd use Marnina, then she can choose whether to stay Marnie or not as she grows up.

I really love a lot of 'old-lady names'. I think some of them will probably die off (Gertrude, anyone? Though Gertie is such a cute nn) but others are ripe for revival and are surprising and fresh...
If I was E.Kodi-Leigh I would be extremely jealous of my sister! Cleopatra is a very bold name to have to pull off but at least it's historical!
Audrey, and Adaline spelt Adeline.

Ooh, I do like scgogirl's suggestion of Laurel Mariana!
Not from Oz, but I don't think it matters. It's a very pretty name. Personally I think of the character in the Under the Never Sky book series. Which is a pretty nice link to have.

I also like Laurel Marie and Laurel Marian. I also like Laurel Marina and Laurel Marette - which is quite close to Laurel Mariette.
I forgot about the Proust character. Also I remembered the nn Bertie, which would be cute on a girl, I think.
I prefer Adley beccause Adli looks like there's a bit missing, and yes, it reminds me of the supermarket chain.
But saying Adley out loud feels like I'm dropping the H...
I like Evelyn the best, I think it's underrated.
Lorraine needs a revival too.
Katerina and Kathryn (which are variations of the same name!)
I agree that the spelling without a "y" looks the best, though my instinct is to change the first letter and make it Audrey Mae instead.

I love Bellatrix and Lilith - I think they're underused because of the dark connotations, but the easy way to combat that is to raise a lovely, kind Bellatrix or Lilith! Plus you can always use the...
Just heard this one and I really like it. Not sure if I prefer Albertina.
Another option is Alberta, of course, which has a bit more of a serious feel imo.
Not a fan of the obvious NN choices...
Exactly. I love Gracie and dislike Gracie (though I prefer Rose to Rosa), and I don't like Tilly, but I like almost all the names that it could be made from.

I would still use Elsa. It's a lovely name and your daughter will probably like it that there is a character in a Disney film with the same name as her.

I adore Aurélia Althea. Beautiful combination. That 'name meaning' site makes no sense - how can someone have no self esteem and be egotistical? Ignore it, it's clearly computer-generated!
