Lauren..niece names Laura.
Marin (muh-RIN)... Pronunciation problems
Cara (care-uh)... Possible pronunciation problems
Natalie... Husband's ex
Bonnie...I feel it is too nicknameish
Poppy...I feel it is too nicknameish
I also really like Kelly, Brooke, Shannon, Heather, and Wendy but feel they are dated to the 70s and 80s.

Fable, Lyra, and Fiona; pretty wearable, if I do say so myself. Fable isn't too strange, since people are naming their girls Story now. Its almost like the combination of Fay and Able, and those aren't strange names either, plus the nickname could be Fay. I just love the meaning behind Fable, too.
MY list on the other hand is pretty debatable.
Philomena - I've brought this up a few times in threads here; its a name I think is beautiful, strong, earthy, romantic, and could be the name of a hero in a book. Philomena was my grandmother Ione's best friend growing up, and when I first heard the name I was entranced.
Chrysanthemum - I love nature names, okay? I've loved this name since I was a little girl, and I always thought the flowers were gorgeous. I do have to say, my favorite part of the name is -santhemum, but Chrys has a very airy sound that I enjoy too. I just don't like the nickname Chrys!
Wildebriar - This was a name I kind of smooshed together one night: Wilda + Briar. I thought it was really pretty and cool, with a possible nickname of Willa. I just don't think it's very wearable for a kid today, kind of like Philomena. If I didn't have to worry about anything, I'd say Philomena and Wildebriar would be a pretty fitting sibling set.
I notice I seem to really like long names.aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

(Missmelissa, if you're Portuguese don't use Fiona... the teasing potencial with the word "feiona" is just too high)
Zara, because of the shop
All names started in L, because I can't pronounce them properly
And for boy, Samir. I think it has the most beautiful meaning of all names, but it just sounds too weird for me to use.

liviajoan, I have Chrysanthemum on my list of middles! I loved the book of the same name when I was little.
Zoe- Too popular, and my current last name starts with an O, so it's off the table for now.
Cleo- Would run together with my last name just like Zoe. Also, it's my cousins' cat's name.
Sunday- I love the sound, but it's too out there even for me. Maybe in the middle spot.
There are a bunch more I can't think of right now.Gwen
