I received a whole pile of various baby/parenting books (mostly as gifts from my own overanxious mother) while I was pregnant. There was only one that I found useful. It's basically a how-to guide...
I like Charles Ira

Of the ones you mention, I like Sebastian and Nathaniel a lot. I prefer different nns than Sebby and Nate, however. Have you thought of using Sabe (rhymes with Gabe) and Nat instead?
I think it would be an odd choice. As a name, it's tied closely to the Fitzgerald character, and Jay Gatsby is somewhat of a problematic namesake.

Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but:

I think it's fine if the name is a relatively common one (as these are). I would, however, probably give the other child's parents a heads up beforehand.
Imogen Cordelia Plum
Imogen Cordelia Posey
Might I suggest Clara Josephine? I really love the idea of Clara with Trevor and Adelaide.
From your list, my favourites (based largely on flow with Josephine) are Hazel Josephine and Olivia...

Very nice. Desmond was on our short list, too, for many of the same reasons you mention. We would have used Des as the nn. I think it pairs very nicely with Sanders.
I think Ezra paired with something besides Jude (i.e. non-religious) would be the way to go for you.

All are lovely choices. I'm not as much of a fan of Noah as your other choices (though I do love Samuel!), however.
Henry Daniel = Nothing to fault here, though I'm not sure that I love Daniel as...
I agree that a three syllable middle works well with Fraser:

Arthur Miles flows better, I think.
It's really great!
I used two, BUT the boys' second middle is my surname (my husband and I have different surnames). So it's: FIRST -- MIDDLE -- MY SURNAME AS SECOND MIDDLE -- HUSBAND'S SURNAME
This seemed like a...
Aphra Behn comes to mind. Not a bad association, though.
Annabel and Imogen is my favourite, followed closely by Annabel and Evelyn. Scarlett is not one that I personally find appealing--I think it's a divisive name that people either really dig or really...
All three names are lovely, but Sophie and Olivia just sound like they should be sisters to me!
I agree with pp that Ava and Sophie just don't go as well, and the similar ending on Audrey and...
For my part, I think "most classic" means: in use by English speakers for several centuries and in the top 100 for *most* of the past 100 years. They are the group of "classics" that, judging by the...

- a friend who lives in the same city/town has named her child
- a friend who lives futher away has named her child
Maybe, if it is a common name (let's say in the top 50 or so)
