Evelyn, if you give her what your mother hasn't exactly given you - clear boundaries and a firm but kind lead that assures her that you're trustworthy, that you're the parent.

I posted before that I love Evelyn Iris. Still would go with that, but wanted to share a story about my friend. Her pushy mother in law told her that she and her son(baby's father) had decided the baby should be named Elizabeth. So my friend told her that when she and her son had a baby together they could name it Elizabeth. You and husband are the ONLY people that have a say in naming this child. No one was crazy about my kid's names at first either. They would suggest all sorts of names to try to sway our opinion. This is manipulation. Now everyone loves their names. Just tell them that they already named their kids and now it is your turn.

Honestly, I don't think Evelyn goes with her siblings. I think your style is quite masculine so throwing a feminine, girly name into the sibset is a bit odd one out. I think you should give a masculine/unisex fn and a feminine mn.
Harlow Elizabeth (I really like the flow of this name)
Rowan Evelyn (If you really love Evelyn use as a mn)

I agree with bluesuedeshoes-- I don't really think Evelyn fits in with the style of your other children's names and I think she has a lot of good suggestions that fit better with your sibset. What about Eden Iris? I think it fitst much better with Riley, Jackson, and Piper. Some other suggestions: Avery, Paige, Blythe, Sydney/Sidonie, Taylor, Davis, Brooke, Sage, Morgan, Shelby, Merit, Maia.

Thanks for some of the suggestions. I like Quinn but prefer it in the middle position, Rory is actually a pet fave of mine. I do actually like Harlow but feel it's a bit close to Harlot. Peyton, Rowan and Ryan I'm not fussed on.
davisellu - I do like Eden, and Arden but both I find are a little clunky with our last name W aldron... not sure if that's deal breaker or not.
I do like Blythe and Sage but prefer them in middles for some reason. The others are unusable for various reasons. I'm starting to warm up to my husbands like of Alexis a little. I've always found it a bit harsh for a girl but I would probably just call her Lexi.
