Claire is a lovely name and I think it makes a very sweet and strong first name. Actually, I think all the names on your list go beautifully with Claire! I think Wren or Fern would go nicely with Claire as well.

Claire is beautiful. I think it's fully sufficient as a FN, not too short at all. If you're worried, though, you could use it as a nn for something like Clarissa, Clara, or Clarity... A long time ago, Claire was on my top 5 as a FN, I used to adore it up front, and Claire as a name has been one of my favorites since the fifth grade, really. But then I actually met a little Claire, and after I saw it on an actual little person, I knew I couldn't see me with a little Claire so I moved it to the MN spot (it's a family name for me, too). Since then I've met two adorable, beautiful, charming, wonderful Claires, and they always seem to make me reconsider Claire as a FN, but it just never sticks. I don't think I'm meant to have a Claire, but I'd love to meet lots and lots of adorable little Claires!
I had several Claire combos over the years--these were some of my favorites:
I think Claire Josephine is pretty gorgeous, too. And Claire Ophelia. And Claire Olivia. Although I'd be hesitant about Claire Olivia or Claire Ophelia if your LN (or your baby's LN) would start with a "W" (even the idea of a potential Catherine Odette or Charlotte Olive or Claire Ophelia of mine marrying a Jack Winters is enough to keep me from using it--Charlotte Winters is fine, but the initials COW is where I draw the line!).

I have a daughter named Claire and get many compliments on her simple, yet beautiful name. Her brother's name is Patrick and we feel like they go extremely well together. As we are currently expecting our third, we too have been searching for the perfect sibling name addition. At this point, we are in love with Nora for a girl and still undecided for a boy!
Good luck! I don't think you can go wrong with Claire (either spelling).
