I love Lily and Vera. Edith still feels dated at the moment, but I think it'll be more popular in a few years.
Some more ideas:
Helena Corinne nn Lena, Nell, Nellie
Violet Corinne nn Lettie
Felicity Corinne nn Fee, Fliss
Florence Corinne nn Flora, Flossie
Cecily Corinne nn Sissie, Celie
Beatrice Corinne nn Bea
Sylvia Corinne nn Sylvie
Amelia Corinne nn Millie
Louisa Corinne nn Lou, Lulu, Lola

I think Edith is a really nice alternative. I like the nickname Edie. However, I usually don't tell people (even friends or family) my favorite names. Your friend might think it's an old lady name, but they will change their mind when they see it on a lively little toddler girl. Edie is adorable.
I like Vera too. It's very elegant.
What about Rose? Since you like the botanical name Lily. Rose is very familiar as a middle name, but overlooked as a first. I think it's lovely.

I don't care for Edith personally, but love Edie! Edith Corinne is nicer as a full name though.
Vera Corinne is LOVELY. Marion is a favorite of mine too (oddly enough-- Marion is a female family name on my side and Marian is a male family name on DH's side...we can't quite win there!). Miriam, Marion, Vera...all winners in my book.
