Lucia Cerulean? Wonderful.
Also like Lucia Lorelei, Lucia Muirin, Lucia Venus & Lucia Vivienne.
Generally I think choosing Lucia over Lucy would be a smart decision - it gives her the option of going by the bubbly Lucy or more exotic Lucia as she enters adulthood, and I also think Lucia blends better with the rest of your list.

makaylaerin and rielle – Thank you! I find myself leaning in this direction…Hubs is not keen on Morwenna, and Lucia seems more complete than Lucy, while still allowing for it as a nickname. And Pearl is just exquisite…so evocative for a one-syllable name!
sorceress – thank you! I'm rediscovering my love for Nimue and looking for a place where she fits.
bigsweater – thanks for the suggestions! Loire is swoonworthy, but I think Hubs will take issue with the French-ness. Afton unfortunately makes me think of afghan, even though it's lovely to look at!
otterbot – thanks, sweets! What IS the Italian way? I say loo-SEE-ah, because LOO-sha just sounds mushy to me.
dindlee – I agree!
geeknamezyo – aww, thank you! It's funny, because sometimes names are very evocative and come with their own imagery, and other times I have specific imagery in mind and look for names that match it. Either way, I love imaginative descriptors! I'm glad you think Lucy and Caspian work together…I'd get no end of mockery from my in-laws if they thought I was Narnia-theming my kids.
embem – you're right about the lack of contrast, maybe that's why I'm hesitant. I've never been a Niniane fan, although I do love Vivian. Lior is intriguing…originally I was Lucy all the way, but the more I say Lucia the more I love her…she's like Lucy all grown up and cultured and exotified (look at me making new words!)
katie – Cerulean is so fun to say! That was my favorite crayon in the box as a kid…I love Lorelei, especially after the Blackmore's Night song! Muirin is pretty, but Hubs will not go for the less than intuitive pronunciation. Venus is a no-go for me, but Vivienne is beautiful. I think I prefer her to Vivian. Thanks so much for your thoughts on Lucy vs. Lucia! You've captured exactly what I was trying to say. And I'm glad to hear Lucia blends well with her potential sibs…I'm a sucker for a cohesive sibset.
Thank you all for your help! I think Lucy and therefore Morwenna are officially out of the running, so I'll be trying out Lucia Pearl on Husbie. Wish me luck >_>Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar
Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
