Aurelia Arrietty - I love this but it is difficult to say.
Aurelia Lyonesse - I like this!
My suggestions would be: (I think these names should hit all three of the requirements you listed, without repeating Iris).
Aurelia Ash (Ash is the god of the oasis and the vineyards of the western Nile Delta)
Aurelia Hebe (Greek goddess of youth and also a genus of plan in New Zealand).
Aurelia Minthe (Greek Naiad nymph who was transformed into a spear-mint plant)
Other suggestions: Lotis, Heliades and DaphneExpecting Our First.....
DH doesn't want to discuss names until
we know if it's a boy or girl. GRRRRR ARGH!

I've listed some mythological and botanical names below, some familiar and some a bit more unusual;
Aurelia Nerise (a derivative of Nerissa, a sea nymph)
Aurelia Echo (my favourite - unusual, but still familiar)
Aurelia Helen (of Troy)
Aurelia Nyx (Greek goddess of night)
Aurelia Eirene (Greek goddess of peace)
Aurelia Daphne (a fresh water nymph)
Aurelia Circe (Greek goddess/witch depending on what version you read. Pronounced the same as Cersei Lannister in the Song of Ice & Fire series in case that bothers you. She's not the nicest of characters!)

Aurelia Danae (one of Zeus’ mortal lovers and the mother of Perseus, who killed Medusa)
Aurelia Hermione (Helen of Troy’s daughter)
Aurelia Clove (also a Hunger Games name)
