    Florence is my favorite for a girl, as it matches Silvia and Miles stylistically, but doesn't actually sounds anything like them. I love the connection to Italy, it seems to work well with the surname, and I also just happen to love that name most from your list anyway. Clara would be my second choice.

    For boys, I do love Leo, and it works well with your kiddos' names, but I'm not sure about it with your surname. I'm not a fan of Calvin due to the meaning, I do find Lucas too common (internationally, not just in the US) and Clive and Jay seem not quite retro enough to be hip yet. That leaves Linus (which I actually sort of love but doubt I'd ever have to guts to use; I did meet a baby Linus recently and it totally worked) and Xavier, which I am also unsure about.

    So, Florence, Clara, Josephine (it just works), Linus (and Leo and Xavier with reservations?).
    Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.

    With Sylvya and Myles, I think these names are stylistically compatible.

    Girl

    Florence (my fave)
    Josephine
    Evelyn

    Boy

    Calvin (if you're going to give him the nn Cal then perhaps it's not the best choice. If you're using the full name Calvin, I think it's fine).
    Leo (fn and surname ending in "o" never hurt Leonardo diCaprio)
    Xavier - "Zay-vee-ur" is the only way I pronounce it (the "x" is a "z").
    All the best,
    Mischa.
