Love your daughter's name! I considered using it but I was worried everyone would constantly make James Bond references. Does that happen to you much? From you list I like Petra and Odette, which work well imo. Actually what popped into my head before I read egilona's post was Vesper & Maris as both have I religious connection. I also thought of Seraphina. And I love the suggestion of Laurel.

Vesper is definitely growing on me.
I think that you need something that's not overly feminine like something like Annabelle. Annabelle and Vesper are horrible together.
From the names listed I think the only ones that work are Petra and maybe Beatrix. All others are to feminine.
Vesper and Sawyer
Vesper and Sailor
Vesper and Arizona
Vesper and Liberty
Vesper and Addison
Vesper and Mckinley
Vesper and Lincoln (Lincoln can very well be a girls name. Ex: Kristen Bell's daughter)
Vesper and Ireland
Vesper and Imogen
Vesper and Astrid
Vesper and Teagan
Vesper and Portia
Vesper and Violet
Vesper and Quinn (too unisex?)
Vesper and Willa
Vesper and TaraAlexis

James Bond reference (DH is somewhat of a JB book and movie buff) but actually we have only ever met ONE person who connected it to Vesper from James Bond and then directly after that he also said he remember saying Vespers (evening prayers) when he was younger. We have friends and family all over the country- so her and her name announcement were not limited to being known in just one area - we are surprised also- we expected people to pick up the James Bond reference more often. Most people just say they think it is very beautiful and that they have never heard it before.
Actually one person who we have met that was really intrigued by it was Snow White at Disney World! She said she loved it and kept asking us questions about it. I am sure the Disney Princess hear hundreds of names a day- a great job for a name enthusiast!
