Congratulations on your new daughter! Emiliana Pari is a beautiful, cross-cultural name. Glad that she's calm for your sake and hope that headache (and all your other aches and pains) go away soon.

Martha is too clunky for my taste.
Minerva is solid, stately, and dependable but glamorous at the same time. I picture a woman with alabaster skin, black curls, and rosy red cheeks.
By the time she's old enough she needs to initial things, she'll be past the point of being teased for them. I'm in university and still rarely do, definitely didn't in elementary/high school- it's...

Ramona nn. Romy- not old lady at all! totally usable
Etta- old lady chic, usable
Magnolia nn. Maggie- not old lady at all
Dorothy nn Dory or Dot- fusty, Dory and Dot not really...
Too odd and clunky for everyday use, sorry. People would constantly mistake it for Earth, and when people say the word earth she would easily mistake it for her name. And Bertha is too dated, sorry.
My father's name is Matthias, pronounced muh-THIGH-us. He was born overseas but that seems to be the most common pronunciation here in Canada too.
My guess would be mar-lay-nah. I prefer the European mar-lay-nuh pronunciation of Marlene though. (-ah and -uh do sound noticeably different to me.) It's a lovely name, with a vintage-chic but fresh...
Marianne is beautiful, a soft, and sensitive soul. My top 2 would be Marianne Blythe and Marianne Hazel, though my favourite of the middles is Edith. All the combos work though.
Cordelia is one of my favourite names, so I definitely vote for Cordelia! It's elegant, sophisticated, dramatic, bold, feminine, and literary. I get an image of crashing waves, a goddess of the sea...

I've never met or even heard of a real-life Imogen. It's pretty popular in the UK but barely known in North America. It feels quintessentially British to me, with a soft, quiet charm, and the...
Monica is nice, it does feel a bit dated but still usable. It's feminine while being solid and not flimsy. I did think of Monica Lewinsky and Monica Seles (the tennis player), but I don't think most...

I've never had a baby so I wouldn't really know, but can you call your midwife and tell her about your contractions, etc. and let her make the call? Or call an over-the-phone health consultation...
I definitely pick Matilda over Magdalena! Matilda is sleek and sophisticated but spunky and fun. It has so many great associations, including the gutsy Empress Matilda. I can imagine one in a Norman...

I agree that Maria is a classic that will never become dated, due to its frequent use in countries all across the Western world for centuries. If I had to guess the ethnicity of a Maria I'd guess...
I prefer Cecily, but I don't really like Celeste which sounds cold and dull to me. Cecily is a mostly prim and proper Victorian-era lady with a gleam in her eye, who loves balls and garden parties...
I love Rosalind! It's classy, elegant, and feminine with a flowery touch, but grounded enough to not be all airy-fairy. Rosalie is sweet and cute but not as strong. And Shakespeare's Rosalind is such...

Este sounds spunky and fun. My first association was Isabella d'Este, a famous and accomplished woman from the Renaissance era with a great story. I know how to pronounce Este but you may get people...
Beatrice is so elegant and regal, with lovely historical and literary associations. I've never been keen on Celeste.
Azalea is absolutely stunning! It's been my favourite girls' name for years. It has a fresh, spunky, fun feeling but sounds common to other older, more established names. It's unusual in a good way-...

A strange smoosh of Emily and Elizabeth?
Maybe it's an accent thing, or my misunderstanding how you've spelled it out phonetically, but I would pronounce Madison as Mad-i-sin and Jordan as Jor-din. Madison/Madisyn, Jordan/Jordyn, and...
