I love Cosima, and Sts Cosmas and Damian are amazing. (My mother's a physician too, and we always had St Pantaleimon hanging in our kitchen.)
I'd pause about Cosima Noor, but not for too long--she'll only use her middle name occasionally. If you love it, go for it. It sounds like it's quickly becoming your baby.
If you want the meaning light of the cosmos, there's always Photini, Fiona, Eleni, Lucienne, Helene.
Ooooh. Cosima Helene. Complètement merveilleuse.
Cosima Chrysanthe (do you like alliteration?)
Constance is splendid, and I like the nod to St Constantine. I love Myriam, and there are so many wonderful saint Marys out there. My saint is Brigid of Kildare, and Brigitte is rather sweet. Philothea, Thekla, Genevieve, and Lydia are other saints I cherish. Philothea's on my short list, with the nickname Thea.
Not that you need more names, but today I've been loving Cecile, Corisande, and Adelaïs.
Have you thought about looking into patron saints first, then building a name around the saints you're most drawn to?

I can see that Cosima is a favourite for you and the nameberries.
I have been googling and found out that there is a St Junia (mentioned in the Bible (Romans) and then there was St Lydia of Illyria and she was a most interesting saint as I have just read how she and her family survived torture in Illyria.
I am very fond of Melisande, it has a whimsical feel for me and while it wouldn't suit you I can imagine a Melisande Calypso.
So much for my brain which can only stay charged for a short time.
Warmest congratulations on baby.

Thanks all, I really appreciate the comments.
@rapt how funny, we coincided! Cosima definitely has more meaning for me than Noor.
@brigid yes, I am leaning towards that approach. Cosima would be for St Cosmas, as you know, and the female saint I most admire is Cassiane/Kassiani, and husband quite likes that name. Helene is under strong consideration as it would honor my MIL, who has an Arabic name starting with H that she doesn't like much. I love Chrysanthe and Cassiane both, but don't think I could pair either with Cosima and keep a straight face.
@rollo yes, Lydia of Illyria was a real person, and I told @ottilie that she is celebrated on ottilie's daughter's due date, which was a happy coincidence. Melisande Calypso is too whimsical for me, but definitely has a lot of flair.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
