My favorites are Garnet and Tressa.
Garnet is nice with Willow and Veda because it's similarly literal but evocative and a tiny bit shadowy (unlike straightforward Ruby)
I usually sniff at those names that refer to birth order, but Tressa is magical. Three is a powerful number anyway.
I want to like Elidi more than I do, because it's great written and fresh as can be. To my ears though, it's too close to Melody. Prefer Alida.
Salome and Solomon would be incredible for G/B twins.
Artis and Raine are divine, as firsts or middles for Tressa - neither goes with Garnet, sadly.
Other Arthur-related names-
Also, maybe its not dry enough for you, but Lilith springs to mind.

Bethlow- thanks for the input. In Canada (in the 70's/80's) Beth-Anne/BethAnn was pretty common, and I don't think I'd want to correct people all the time. I love Freya! Hubby says he likes it too. I worry it might be too close to Veda ("vay-dah"), though.
Maudie- Elidi is pronounced "Ell-id-ee"
Emmabobemma- hubby dislike Elidi, "because it just sounds like you're saying Melody wrong!"Mom to two little girls, Willow & Veda
