First of all, I'm excited that perhaps we can transition from name consultation to wedding dress consultation here. I think it will greatly cushion the naming-hangover we'll all feel when your baby is actually born and named. "Ottilie had her baby - oh what a letdown!" Kidding!
Secondly, I am loving all of your names. I vote for Zenobia Beatrice Marian. The non-A-endings allow Zenobia to be the most elaborately feminine of the three. It's somehow made more delicate by the surety of Beatrice and Marian. Plus that "bia-bea" sound is pretty cool.
The only one that I'm a tiny bit mixed on is Rosalind Illyria Isolde. Three gorgeous names, but to my ears, exquisite Illyria is getting lost amid all the I and L sounds. I think she might be better highlighted by a third name with slightly more bite or contrast.
Just switching it to Rosalind Illyria Yseult gives it more bite. Or something like...
Rosalind Illyria Dione ("DIE-uh-nee" or "Die-OH-nee") for contrast.
Rosalind Illyria Endellion is gentler, but still gives the tongue someowhere to land.
Rosalind Illyria Leonor (still repetitive, but more distinct. The only version of Eleanor I love. Well Lenore too I suppose.)
Rosalind Illyria Gwenllian (bring her back!)
Rosalind Illyria Psyche (ooh la la! And her initials would be RIPE)
Rosalind Illyria Maud (Maud always gets a mixed reception here, but I find her so beautiful and queenly.)

Also, I have a little fantasy at the moment of having children called Foo, Roo and Zoo (Fiammetta, Rosalind/Robin & Zenobia)... I also picture a sweet little girl with blonde plaits playing peek-a-boo and climbing trees. I'm keeping it despite your feelings
I adore your Rosalind, Fiammetta and Zenobia Beatrice combos
