Call me crazy, but I think I want to try looking at this a different way. You need a name like Kelsey - she's sort of out there in her own as a trendy gender-bender (not that this name needs to swing both ways) whereas you other names are more similar as a whole and in sets. Maggie and Sophie seem more nickname-y, Mary and Sarah are both Biblical and classic-classic-classic!, Emma and Serena are both vintage and very feminine.
Kelsey was at her most popular in the early 90s. Looking at the Top 50 for those years, here are some ideas I came up with:
Rachel Felicity Jane
Heather Felicity Jane
Laura Felicity Jane
Hannah Felicity Jane
1990 - Rachel is a Biblical classic you don't hear all the time now. Heather is a soft nature name ripe for revival. Laura is a subtle underused classic. Hannah is a quintessential perky good girl name also not heard all over these days.
Shelby Felicity Jane
Morgan Felicity Jane
1991 - Shelby is cute and Southern and very sweet. The flow admittedly isn't superb there. Morgan is exactly like Kelsey, a 90s favorite gender bender, with a spunky image.
Alexis Felicity Jane
1992 - Alexis is another gender bender with tons of nickname potential. It's a youthful name that ages well and fits many personalities.
Victoria Felicity Jane
1993 - Victoria has been around for a long time, but Tori was everywhere in the 90s. Not so much now. Especially in light of the pending British Baby, this is a regal option.
Abigail Felicity Jane
1994 - A tried and true Biblical favorite for centuries, Abigail is an easy name to wear.
Sydney Felicity Jane
Jordan Felicity Jane
1995 - Sydney and Jordan are both gender benders. Sydney is more feminine and continues to be seen today. Jordan has seemingly largely returned to the boys, but would represent a bold step.
Of these names, the ones that are most like Kelsey but also most versatile and appealing in the set are Alexis and Sydney, though Syd doesn't flow as well with Felicity.
Victoria and Abigail are both lovely, but more classically matched to your other girls' names.
