Alula - "first leap" - since this is your first child
Danica - Scandinavian - morning star
Roxana - dawn, little star
Phoebe - relates to the moon
Seren - Welsh - star
Sidra - Latin (?) - like a star
Tamsin - means twin (a nod to Gemini)
Tana - Greek (?) - fire/star goddess
Margot - means pearl
From your list I really love Flora, Opal, and Marigold and might suggest Florence.

Celeste: pretty. I slightly prefer Celestia for you.
Mercy: too religious for my taste.
Lua: I think it could stand alone or as a nickname for Luna.
Isis: eh, I have never seen the appeal.
Aquila: I always thought this worked better on a girl. Love the suggestion of Quila as a nn.
Melanite: I would prefer just Garnet as a name.
Opal: a great gem name. Probably my favorite of the gems.
Marigold: love! Love nn Goldie.
Wisteria: love this name! Love the nn possibilities.
Gemini: I see why you love it (I love it too), but I think it is a little too out there. It might work as a mn especially if your wee one will be born under this sign.
Flora: pretty. I prefer Flora as a nickname as Florence. In terms of flower inspired names there are other ones that I prefer much more.
Forsythia: not a fan, sorry.
Keshet: not a fan, sorry.
Minerva: love nn Minnie or Mina. A little too old lady for my taste, but a lovely name nonetheless.
Amethyst: one of those names that I love but I don't know if I can picture it on an actual child.
Tempest: eh fine as a mn, but I prefer Temperance.
You have a great list. I would suggest:
Serena/Serene (Seren means star)
Aquarius (again, the whole sign thing would be a deal breaker for me, but since you like Gemini and Aquila maybe you'll like it)
Emerald (it's out there a prob not your taste, but I think it's usable)
Saphira (stretch for Sapphire)D.S. lil Bam Bam

if religious names are off limits mythological names are off limits too o_O those are from religions....
ps dont be embarrassed about having no one to honor, people go overboard with that i think. 'you were a normal dad and did exactly what you were supposed to! lets name a baby after you!' unnecessary and boring in my opinion.
