Grace - Very pretty in the first name position.
Victoria - I adore Victoria! Although I detest the nickname Vicky.
Caroline - I'm not a big fan of Caroline, though it has a lovely sound.
Mary - I'm starting to like Mary, as much as I told myself I never would. I would love to meet a young Mary.
Julia/Juliet - Not a fan of either name. Juliet is too princess-y for my liking and there's just something about Julia.
Clara - Not a fan of the Cla- names in general, but Clara is starting to grow on me.
Eleanor - Eleanor is absolutely stunning! I adore the nickname Nora.
Alice - I adore Alice! I could almost call it perfect.
Lillian - Lillian is one of my favourite Lily names. It's very elegant in my opinion.
Rose - Rose is adorable! Especially in the first name spot.
Charlotte - I adore Charlotte with the nickname Lottie! The only downside is its popularity.
Madeline - Not a fan of Mad- names.
Florence - Florence is my favourite girls names! I just love it. I love the nicknames Flora, Flossie and Ren.
Adelaide - Adelaide is precious. Ada and Addy are cute nicknames.
My favourites with Catherine and Elizabeth are...
Catherine, Elizabeth and Victoria
Catherine, Elizabeth and Eleanor
Catherine, Elizabeth and Charlotte
Catherine, Elizabeth and Adelaide.Renaming myself;
something quirky, British and elegant.

I think these are the best out of you list:
Catherine, Elizabeth, and Victoria
Catherine, Elizabeth, and Grace
Catherine, Elizabeth and Madeline
Catherine, Elizabeth, and Adelaide
Grace- in the same class as the other two, gorgeous
Victoria- see comment above
Caroline- wouldn't want to repeat "C" as a first initial
Mary- A little plain and a little less elegant compared with Elizabeth and Catherine
Julia/Juliet- Juliet is beautiful and could stand on its own
Clara-wouldn't want to repeat "C" as a first initial
Eleanor-wouldn't want to repeat "E" as a first initial
Alice- seems a bit stunted and less elegant compared to Elizabeth and Catherine
Lillian- not a huge fan, doesn't sound as classic as the other two
Rose- beautiful in the first name spot, but really stands out next to the other two
Charlotte- wouldn't want to repeat "C" as a first initial
Madeline- Even though I don't like the name it looks and sounds right with the sibset
Florence- I really like it but I can see it aging more than the other two
Adelaide- Holds it's own next to the other two names, strong and elegant just like themFinally Expecting #1 Nov/Dec 2013!

My recommendation is ...
01. Catherine [and] William
02. Elizabeth [and] Alexander
03. Mary [and] John
04. Victoria [and] Nicholas
... as a sibset comprised of equivalent "core classic" names.

Elizabeth, Catherine & ...
Elizabeth, Catherine & Victoria
Elizabeth, Catherine & Lillian
Elizabeth, Catherine & Florence
Elizabeth, Catherine & Adelaide
If it were me, I would stick with classic, pretty, longer names that have lots of nickname options and don't start with E or C :P
All of the names are beautiful though, they could all make a perfect sibset, however Victoria, Lillian, Florence & Adelaide are my favorites.
