Allaire: I like this name, though it has a little too much gender ambiguity for my own personal taste, maybe because it remains me of the French boys' name Alain. It does have that vain of medieval...
I adore the name Miriam. I like Miriam with Simone.
I like India Rose on its own, but I think Araceli is the strongest sibling with Isaiah (not a fan of Ivy, though).
Generally, the same as @amberdaydream, though because I know a few Israelis with this name, my inclination would be to use a soft r (as in Hebrew, or French).

Persephone Cora (initials)

They're too similar for me.
@kalaway said my thoughts almost exactly. Kalliope and Zeph on their own are believable, if whimsical, but Septimus feels very much a fantasy name. Tim, on the other hand, sounds too mundane with the...

For Echo/Emerson, for example, her name is realistically unlikely given the era she is...

The first thing I thought of is Helena, which seems to fit Emmanuelle, with Daphne, and your criteria quite well.

They cross my mind, along with, as mentioned, O'Hara and Johansson (O'Hara is probably my first association, actually), but mostly it just strikes me as a posh Southern belle name. I think it has a...
Zora is a little zingy-er, but I tend to stray away from names with one, singular, overwhelming association, such as Oprah or Hercules, unless I am a rabid fan of said association (hence my GPs...
I couldn't tell you why, but perhaps aesthetically: Hazel, Ophelia, Melisande, Elspeth. Some sort of combination of soft and hard in terms of sound, I think.
I like Kira & Theo from your list.
The name is now in the dictionary is a term for a sexually active young girl, which originated from the incredibly disturbing novel. It has no real good association, so no, it's not usable.

Doutzen & Tove make a lovely, quirky combo.

I think everyone would pronounce these names accurately. Charlize is the most unusual of the group, but actress Theron has made the name familiar to most. I prefer Genevieve Blair of the two.
