I think you're fine to use either Logan or Finley for a girl. The scenario of showing up to a job interview where a boss isn't sure if you're a man or a woman is ridiculous. a) Virtually no company does in-person job interviews without a phone interview first b) There are a variety of names common outside North America that could be a man or a woman. I'd say five out of every batch of 20 resumes I see are unclear if it's a man or a woman --and WHO CARES?
Now, back to the names:
-Finley Marie: the middle is a disappointment. I feel like for most of your list you just slapped a middle that flows in there without giving it as much thought as the first.
-Carleigh Bronwyn: Please use a standard spelling. Again, it probably doesn't do future daughter any harm, but it makes YOU look trashy when you choose a made-up spelling.
-Claire Faith: I don't mind two one syllable names together. This is the best of the list if you ask me. Claire is much more elegant than Clara, which sounds straight country to me.
-Makiya Grace: I'm sorry to malign your grandmother's name but it DOES look made up and low-classy. However, as a middle, with the family significance, I think it's better. Why not use it as a middle instead of your boring middle names? I've mentioned this on the boards before my in my niece's pre-Kindergarten class EVERY.SINGLE.GIRL --all 8-- have the middle name Grace. Why have one at all?
-Logan Rose: I like Rose as a first but I think it's boring as a middle. Logan Rose is fine, Rose Logan is nicer.Latest list:
Girl: Lulu, Charlie, Fleur, France, Holiday
Boy: Lennox (Lex), Hugo
Expecting my first.

-Finley Marie - cute!
-Carleigh Bronwyn - Carleigh.......no. the -eigh is unnecessary and annoying. If you want a feminization of charles go for charlie. (Bronwyn is amazing though)
-Claire Faith - love it!
-Makiya Grace - not my cup of tea but very pretty!
-Logan Rose - Logan? reminds me of loogey or logey... like a booger. I don't even like it as a boys name! don't name you girl after a booger!Saskia ~ Tavy ~ Ramona ~ Mischa ~ Jane ~ Sasha ~ Freda ~ Sara ~ Irena ~ Josephine ~ Rosie ~ Betty ~ Francesca ~ Vanessa ~ Louise ~ Mabel ~ Violet ~ Tess ~ Jasmine ~ Allegra
Keaton ~ David ~ Thomas ~ Paul ~ Jude ~ Luke ~ Jack ~ Asa ~ Daniel

I like Claire, Makiya, and Bronwyn the most of the names on your list. I love the name Claire the most - I picture a graceful, intelligent girl/woman. I like the family association you have with Makiya. I have a harder time seeing Carly/Carleigh or Finley on an an adult - they are too cute, if that makes sense. Logan is boring and dated as it is overused for boys.tea drinker + cat lover + ever-evolving baker+cook...positive realist who loves beautiful words, names, and images.
Feel free to ask me about Sanskrit-based names.
