So, you have Alice, Iliana, Lily, Claire, potentially Penelope, Katherine and Molly. That's really not a bad list. In the same vein, trying to incorporate your preferences:
Amelia / Emilia
Thalia (the Greek muse of history)
Camilla / Camille
Aquila * Chrysanthe * Emmanuelle * Endellion * Ione * Jacinda * Lysandra * Melisande * Myrra * Petra * Rosamond * Seraphine * Silvana * Theophane / Blaise * Cyprian * Darius * Evander * Giles * Laurence * Lionel * Malcolm * Marius * Peregrine * Rainier

I'm like your husband I love classics like Katherine and Claire. But I also love nature inspired names. But I think if names have a history than you've hit the nail on the head concerning naming. Unless the history is very negative like Adolf for example, you've got a great name. I think for you I think you need to compromise and go for an unusual yet historical name. Names like Eleanor 'Elle' are more likely to work for both of you than arguing between Aria Azalea (very cute by the way) and the understated Claire. Out of the names listed above I like Katherine, Claire, Lily and Aria Azalea. I dislike Molly which reminds me of moles and Iliana is okay prefer Eliana.

Eliminating the ones I/he doesn't like (that I've asked him previously) and I'll ask him about the rest tonight.
Family names are:
and his ex's cat is named Freya - so, no. xD
Which means I'll be asking him about:
Mollie (I like the alt spelling, here)
Amelia / Emilia
As far as our current list:
Alice - I can't stop thinking twilight. I might need to say this outloud a bit more to see if I find it a viable choice.
Iliana - I liked the suggestion of Eliana, too.
Lily - I love the name, don't get me wrong - but it's SO widespread and used so frequently. I liked the idea of Lilia nn Lily since it's fresher sounding then Lilian/Liliana. I also like the idea of Lila, but I want to run that by hubby.
Claire - MN only.
Penelope - Love this name in theory, but I'm trying to forget that my grandpa used to have a bulldog Penelope. Might need to do the same thing as with Alice.
Katherine - Love the name, but there are SO many people named "Katie" around. I love the name Kate - hate Katie, and it'd become Katie so quick.
Molly - Still loving this one.
I'm holding out hope that there's a name that we both LOVE >.<
What I don't want is to have a child have to go by their last name - Katie A, Katie D, etc -- because there are others like her in their class. It's the reason Paisley is off my list (nee hubby)-- because there are too many around here, already. Same with Cadence.
I also want to throw the name Maci/Macy at him today to see what he thinks of that.
Will report back once he gives his opinions =D

What about Katherine nn Rin?
I'm taking your naming dilemma to the almighty Nymbler. It suggests:
Elizabeth (I think this would be an awesome choice. You could call her something out there- such as Zibby or Libba- or something more common like Ella/Ellie or Beth)
