Four guidelines for girls' names - help me find names that fit them?
I posted this earlier but keep getting suggestions that don't follow the guidelines I put so I figured I'd post again and make it clearer. We've decided we want one more child and for girls' names, we're stuck because all the names we like don't fit in with siblings' names. Guidelines we'd like to follow;
1) not two syllables - since my daughters are Audrey, Violet, and Felicity, another two syllable name would make Felicity stand out I think
2) not ending in 'ee' sound - since Audrey and Felicity end in 'ee', I don't want to leave Violet out
3) not starting with A, J, C, V, F, or I (because of siblings Audrey, Jude, Christian, Violet, Felicity, and Isaac)
4) same style as sibling names - something that fits well with Audrey Cecilia, Jude Alexander, Christian Nathaniel, Violet Annabelle, Felicity Charlotte, and Isaac Benjamin
There are a bunch of names that I love but don't work for one reason or another;
Cora - same letter as Christian and is two syllables
Sadie - two syllables and ends in 'ee' sound
Scarlett - two syllables and two close to Violet
Molly - two syllables and ends in 'ee'
Eloise nn Elsie - two syllables, ends in 'ee', and too close to Felicity nn Lissie
Penelope - along with all the nicknames from it, ends in 'ee'
Matilda - just don't like it, as much as I wish I did
Any suggestions very much appreciated!Audrey Cecilia - Jude Alexander - Christian Nathaniel - Violet Annabelle - Felicity Charlotte - and introducing Isaac Benjamin

Firstly, I wouldn't worry about #1 & 2 very much since you do have boys as well. I don't think anyone will feel left out based on syllables, but I can understand not wanting another ee sound.
I would go with Sienna or Estella.

Baby #4 will be the last for us, so I am kind of sad to be saying goodbye to the beloved names I will now never use! At least I can still come here to encourage others to use them!
Girls: Bridget, Elizabeth, Felicity, Helena, Marianne, Violet, Penelope, Ophelia, Isadora, Victoria
Boys: Theodore, Sebastian, Julian, Everett, Elias, Caspian, Desmond, James, Arthur, Edmund
