5th baby, but first GIRL! :)
Currently pregnant with a surprise 5th pregnancy, which turns out to be our first GIRL! Quickly discovering that naming a girl is a WHOLE different ballgame and need help with narrowing our currently lengthy list. Baby is due at Christmas. Brothers are Ryan (20), Cameron (9), Mason (7) & Graydan (2). My 3 older boys names didn't seem to be so incredibly popular when they were born, so know that I'm not generally into the ultra popular (top 10-ish). We tend to gravitate toward more unisex names, as you can see. My middle name is Leigh. Baby's middle name will be Marianne, Marianna, Mariana, Marin or Merrin, after my mother. Please provide feedback to help us narrow our list

Since your boys have somewhat unisex names, I'd suggest giving your girl an obviously feminine name, just so that she doesn't feel lumped in with the boys.
My favorites from your list are Aubrey, Elise, Eva, and Paige. I would avoid the altered spellings, too; they wouldn't sound right with your boy names, and some people tend to view those types of names as "trashy."
I love Marin and Merrin for middles!

Congratulations! I would choose a name that leans girl, even if it's unisex. I would probably also choose a name that does not end in N.
Addison - too masculine
Ainsley - cute!
Alexandra - sounds like it will be Alexander until the very last minute
Ansley / Ansleigh / Anslie - not as nice as Ainsley imo
Ashby - kind of cute. I'm surprising myself because it's not my usual style but I think if I met a little Ashby, I would be pleased. It makes me smile.
Ashleigh - not special enough and the spelling doesn't improve it imo
Ashton / Ashtyn - too masculine
Aubrie / Aubrey / Aubryn - nms
Avery - ok
Baylen/Baylor - how about Bailey?
Bellamy - I like this one
Brynleigh / Bynlie - nms
Brynnan / Brynn - nms
Carleigh / Karleigh - nms
Carlin / Karlin - too masculine next to the boys' names I think - very similar to Cameron.
Chandler - too masculine
Collier / Kollier - just reminds me of Collies, sorry.
Daniella - maybe just Ella? If I were you and finally having a girl, I wouldn't want to use a feminization. You may not have the same feeling of course!
Delaney - ok.
Easton - too masculine. Everyone would assume this is the 5th boy.
Elise / Elyse - very pretty!
Emerson / Emery - Emery is ok, Emerson is too masculine
Eva / Eve / Evann - Eva and Eve are pretty; Evann is too masculine
Ever / Everly - pretty
Gabriella / Gabrielle - nms
Haleigh - nms
Haven- ok but it ends in N so I would probably avoid
Holland / Holly - ok but kind of dated imo
Kendall - ok
Kennedy - ok
Kerrigan / Carrigan - too masculine I think
Kieran - too masculine
Kinsey - ok
Kristian - too masculine
Lauryn- ok. I would spell Lauren and it ends in N to fit with the boys but is obviously a girls name.
Leighton -too masculine
Mackenzie - nms and a little out dated I think
Maisie / Maisey - ok. I would spell it Maisy
Morgan / Morgann - too masculine
Natalie - nothing special imo
Noelle - pretty
Paige - ok
Peyton - too masculine
Presley - not my style
Quincy / Quinn - too masculine
Reese- ok. the different ending may make it more clear that it's a girl.
Tristan - too masculine
