Sister name for Clara, Luna, and Celina?
My husband and I have been trying for a boy for a while now, but we're having ANOTHER girl! We're very excited, but we can't agree/decide on anything. We have three daughters, Clara Nicolette, Luna Arielle, and Celina Noel. We want it to sound nice with their names, and we don't want it to be a top 100 name.
We thought about a name that meant clear, like Clara, because Luna and Celina mean 'moon'.
But my husband saw Delilah and loves it! I think it's pretty, but would be associated with a pop song, or the Biblical whore. He also likes Hadley, and Isla. I honestly have no idea what I like for her name.
So any suggestions on a pretty name? (first and middle)
Thanks so much!
Daveigh & Alexander.

I like that all the names have L sounds. Delilah fits that and I think it is a lovely name. I like Hadley as well. Isla is pretty, though I think it's a bit trendy and will probably grow to be more popular.
Other names that fit:

I LOVE Luna Arielle <3 I just became inspired ... but I'll deal with my inspiration later. I love that you want to have a "clear" name because the other two are "moon" names; I also wanted to find an L name because you have two C's and an L, but I don't think that'll happen. What about the name Krystal? I spelled it with a K because of the two C's.

Hmmm, the only other name I could find that means "clear" is Serena, which comes from the Latin serenus meaning "clear, tranquil, serene." I think it might be too close in sound to Celine though.
But I looked up Clara, and it means "clear, bright," so what about a name that means bright?
I like to use behindthename.com for etymologies, because it is better for accurate name origins and you can search by meaning. I came across Phoebe, which I am kind of in love with as part of a sib set for Clara, Luna, and Celina. Here's the description: "Latinized form of the Greek name Φοιβη (Phoibe), which meant "bright, pure" from Greek φοιβος (phoibos). In Greek mythology Phoibe was a Titan associated with the moon. This was also an epithet of her granddaughter, the moon goddess Artemis. The name appears in Paul's epistle to the Romans in the New Testament, where it belongs to a female minister in the church at Cenchreae. In England, it began to be used as a given name after the Protestant Reformation. A moon of Saturn bears this name (in honour of the Titan)." I thought it was neat that the name meant bright and was associated with the moon... I also thought it sounded nice with and in the same style as Clara, Luna, and Celina.
Roxanna - means "bright"
Cassandra - means "shining upon man."
Diana - the goddess of the moon (you could explain that Clara relates to the moon as well because it describes the light: "clear, bright")
Helen/Helena/Elena - means "torch" or "light," possibly also related to the same root as selene/moon.
Blanca, Gwen - means "white," which would make them another moon descriptor

some other names that mean bright/clear/light/pure:
My middle name suggestion would be something that ends in -et/ette/etta because you have two that end in -l, and one that ends in -ette so....
