You know how I feel about Fiammetta! And I've completely changed my original position on Zenobia after meeting one (she's the sweetest teenager you'll ever meet)
My top three from your choices:
Working on middle name combos
I ADORE your names! Wish I could use some of them.Zoe Milena

My favorite on your list is Roxana--so sweet with Rosalind, but I'm a sucker for alliteration. Fiammetta is also gorgeous. Our name tastes are vastly different for the most part, but some ideas you might like:
Allegra (Henry Wadsworth, "The Children's Hour" poem)
Amabelle (The Farming of Bones)
Aravis (The Chronicles of Narnia)
Blanca (House of the Spirits)
Melora (Greek, "golden apple")
Megara (Greek mythology)
Mira-Louise (heard it on Little House on the Prairie, love it with Rosalind)
Nella (Nella Larsen, African-American novelist of the Harlem Renaissance)
Shiloh (children's novel of the same name; ancient city)
Pollyanna (children's novel of the same name)
Thomasina (The Three Lives of Thomasina)
Found these on a website full of Renaissance names that you might like:

I think Serafina would be fabulous with Rosalind! Both romantic, whimsical, pretty, lots of pretty nicknames, and sturdy.
I actually like all the names on your list apart from Fiammetta and Natasha. I find Fiammetta to be quite a lot clunkier than the beautiful Rosalind, though the nn Fia is adorable (if you were to use it - Roo and Fia would be fabulous!). As for Natasha, I'm sorry but it just screams chav to me! Most of the Natasha/Tasha's I know are in their 20's-30's so it feels quite dated to me. Not a fan.
Melisande is probably my favourite from the list
A couple of suggestions - These are probably way off the mark, so apologies!
Mama to Amelie Clara (2008) & Daisy Madeline (2013).
Alice Tallulah, Polly Matilda, Rosalie Faye, Lucy Annabel, Maya Lillian, Hazel Kate, Eva Blossom, Juliet Lila, Ivy Camille.
