    Stars/Sky

    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

    Gems
    Garnet
    Gemma
    Margot - means pearl

    From your list I really love Flora, Opal, and Marigold and might suggest Florence.

    I love the name Aquila for a girl! My nieces middle name is Quillard (her first is Patricia after her late grandmother) and she goes by Quil. I think it is such an adorable nickname for Aquila.

    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:

    Spacey
    Lyra
    Nova
    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)
    Soleil
    Callista

    Floral
    Magnolia
    Zinnia
    Aster
    Jonquil



    Gems
    Emerald (it's out there a prob not your taste, but I think it's usable)
    Almandine
    Garnet
    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.
