My first thought was Scarlett Raphaelle (or Scarlett Raphaella, Scarlett Rafaela, Scarlett Raphaela, meaning "god has healed") or even Scarlett Michelle (Scarlett Michaela, "who is like God?"). It...
Emma Carolina Holly or just Emma Holly would be lovely. I always feel that it's more special when people use the actual name. In your case, you're lucky because your mother has a very nice one.

Kaya and Taryn are short and contemporary, I wouldn't go with something to different. Personally I love Louis to honour Lou but I'm not sure it would work in that subset.
I think it's lovely. I like the alliteration. Evdokia is amazing, I wish they had the guts to use it as a first name.
Cameron James reminds me too much of James Cameron - I don't think it's a deal breaker but the man has a bad reputation in Hollywood so I can't look behind that association.

If I had something as cool as Evening as a family name, I would use it. Something like Lucy Evening is actually lovely.
My first thought was simply Eve — in the sense of Christmas Eve or All...

Apart from Edie, the most interesting names on your list are Vada and Amity. Personally I feel like they actually age better than Edie (which is kind of cutesy/nicknamey) and flow better with Helen....
My first thought were old Anglo-Saxon names like Athelstan or Ethelred.
Len-a, as in Elena. Both pronunciations are valid, though.
Jaysa and Mordecai
James and Clare have 3 boys and 3 girls. Their first names all end in -et or -ett....
I think Atticus works much better with Leonidas, and seems to be your favourite choice and it fits your style better. Go for it.
Theron only reminds me of Charlize Theron.
I prefer Abigail. I like Molly a lot but I find it too informal to be used as a full name.
Ava & Blake
Clara & Robert have 5 sons and 3 daughters. The boys' first names are occupational surnames with positive/adventurous...
Personally I've always liked the name Hunter. It has plenty of interesting associations, from mythology to literal meaning (a hunter for knowledge, for justice…). Maybe a variation like Huntley or...

People have mentioned many interesting names. Here are other Marian names you might like:
Amabel, Amabilis (Mater Amabilis, "Loving Mother")
Annunziata (Our Lady of Annunciation)
I like Sophie (though Sofia, with an American/Italian/Brazilian background would be more logical) and Luca. They are easy to pronounce in all three languages.
If you go with Anna Catarina (or...

I definitely prefer Dahlia to Dahliana — the first one is a lovely flower, unusual and sophisticated. Dahliana is excessively frilly and over-the-top, and sounds made up and lacks the elegance of the...
I can definitely picture Martin on a teenager; it's so dated that it's almost cool in a hipster way. It reminds me of Arthur, Walter, etc. Popular (not too popular) names for a 16-year-old: Austin,...

The options are endless, really.
I would pick a name that is used on both languages (Clara, Alma, Lucas, Oscar…). Then maybe a name from one of the languages that either that is easily recognised and pronounced in the other language...

Frankly? I would avoid Beatriz if you aren't a Spanish (or Portuguese) speaker; it's either [beh-ah-TREETH] or [bee-uh-TREESH], and neither pronunciation works well in English, IMO.

It has nothing to do with opinion —*Lennox is a Scottish surname. Historically, surnames are used on boys.
In my opinion — most people would expect a Lennox to be a boy. Personally I only like...

Margaux is the most intriguing spelling, while Margot is the most classic ones. I slightly prefer the former.
Margo looks dumbed-down and incomplete, IMO.
