Spencer feels too preppy for me. I much prefer Drew.
Blaine comes to mind as an alternative

Myrtle - best of the bunch but I prefer Maude / Maudlin
Bridie - I here old Biddie
Birdie - too nicknamey
Marigold - just okay
Billie - too boy. Makes me think of billie...

I personally wouldn't want to name my kids after a day of the week
But also don't think Weeks is a very addable name as a single or double middle.
Makes the full name sound clumsy.
My favorite has been Laurie ever since I saw Little Women.
But from your picks I love Cassidy, for the nickname Cass.
Reminds me of Castiel from Supernatural which is too much for a first...
Too easily misheard
Either of these is a better choice.
Not worth the trouble for a not that pretty name.

Vida reminds me of Vita = vitamins and vitamix infomercials
Veda is okay, but not sure how you want this pronounced. I prefer the sounds Vayda. But then that's like a rap Vader.
I would not have an emphasis on the h. I think Lenny like the boys nickname for Leonard. I don't say Leh-nard I say Len-ard.
Think you should def find a longer name for your daughter to grow into...

I don't think so and if someone did know it was linked to Poe itd only be in a positive literary light in passing. Much preferred to annabel lee.

Vitricia - not a fusty as Patricia, nice find
Maghtalena - a lighter magdalena but sure to be misheard
Hennritte - not sure I'm pronouncing this in my head right but I like it

Clementine had gone too trendy. Madeline is classic but common. Try Maudlin
Twila - i think twit and Twilight. Talula like but think Tallulah is the more accepted spelling and would avoid...

Boy: Lune (from The Cat Returns)
I think of the sound of music.
I would go a little more daring with her middle names though
Catherine and Ann are very basic
While it's after family, I'd lean towards...
Rebekah is the original from the Hebrew Ribkah/Rivka, its my middle and i love this spelling and the history behind it. from all ive researched, translating the original Hebrew never uses 'c' as seen...
Aubrielle & Eliana - the E running into E doesnt sound right when you'd intro your kids together
Aubrielle & Annelise has great flow and the alliteration isnt overbearing due to the differing A...
Hadley is too trendy for me
while Adele has rose up due to the singer, it has lots of olden charm Hadley doesnt
Adele = Substance
Hadley = Flat
i think of Alton Brown = ALL-ton, but if i used this name id def spell it Allton to re-enforce the sound i want

too subtle - the masculine changes to Emerald will not be heard when this name is used on a day to day basis
plus its an out there, trying too hard spelling
id try Errol, a more 'legit'...
Emilie - someone tired of having to spell out her name all the time
Emmalyn - same as above, but is at least glad her name isnt so popular & has some wiggle room
Hadley - a girl with a growing...
Jack is classic, Sawyer is trendy
Wilder is a surname/action word name mashup (gives it more legitimacy than Danger, Maverick, or Cannon)
Lane is more feminine to me (on top of Sawyer which...

Odette or Octavianna
Aryanna or Ariadne
Calypso or Carrie
Lily or Melfina
Aubrey or Jessamine
Keegan or Clark
Xane or Lysander
Barkley or Benjamin
Tate or Rameses
Psalm reminds me of Solomon, Samuel, Saul
Think it's a fabulous middle and maybe a daring first on a boy.
Feel Prayer is a lovely middle but not quite ready for a first.
When a general name...
Too many 'did you say Penelope?'s.
Plus for some reason I keep reading it and hearing 'vanilla envelope'.
