Verity Tyson (When I say it, the ty- sounds more like a -dee)
Maya Tyson (my-ah)
Stella/Estelle Tyson (I think the T sounds in this flow nicely together)
Edit: Have you thought about Gracia (Grace-see-ah or Gray-sha), if you're second-guessing Grace?

Even when discussing Caroline with my husband I find myself saying Claroline. In fact, I think part of the reason we like it is that it reminds me of Clare's name. I could put that aside as I know that for a while I was calling Clare Clatharine and I don't do that any more (now, I just call Clare Katharine...oops). It's the theme that worries me the most. When dh and I got married we wanted a bunch of kids but that hasn't quite happened and I'm approaching 40, but who knows maybe we'll still end up with a few more. If they are all girls, I don't want to feel confined to a C/K theme particularly as I bet most of the names we'd like would all start with the C.#7 due in June!

Grace is lovely!
I understand your concerns though. If like you say you might have a few more kids, more one syllable names kind of strengthen the trend.
Besides the C/K, Clare and Katharine are united by being accepted but not the most common spellings. So that's something to consider
Besides Grace, I can also see (besides the many good suggestions here...I might of course repeat on accident)
Elisabeth (I think you said you didn't like this as a first? But in case I'm misremembering that. I think it's nice).
Eva (two syllable variant of a Biblical name, fairly classic)
Anna (see Hannah)
Hannah (Biblical and familiar/classic - the short A ties it in with Clare and Katharine a bit)
Leah (Biblical and familiar/classic)
Natalie/Nathalie for an accepted not-most-common (classic and the allusion to Christmas may go with the boys' Biblical names and girls' saints' names. I know you didn't love T's though....I think it could work though)
Rachel/Raechel for an accepted not-most-common (Biblical)
Rebecca/Rebekah (Rebekah for an accepted not-most-common; Biblical; either spelling gets you the C or K to tie with the girls, just not at the beginning)

Laura; Rebecca is my only sister, and my husband is Nathan which is way too close to Natalie for me; and Hannah is the name of my niece. Anna nn Annie would be a leading contender but we are 100% set on Andrew for a baby and I'll only consider Anna if I'm really sure it's my last baby. Leah has been on my list before but I don't really like her story and we make a pretty huge deal about the kids namesakes. That's also why Eve and Eve variants aren't on our list.#7 due in June!
