Well congrats on the baby ^_^ I loved helping you with Peregrine's name.
Fia and Eve would be great together and I'm sorry he only likes it as a nickname. Fiametta was the first I thought of for you. I know you already said you'd went over everything you could, but I'll suggest some I think you'd like:
Delfia/Delphine -- dolphin
Fiala -- the violet
Fianna -- a warrior huntress -- it sounds like Fiona, which you like, but it isn't
Afilia -- a noble lineage
Filia -- daughter, help
Finnea -- from the stream of the wood
Fiorella -- flower
Forsythia -- It's a flower and it can get Fia. I've known one ^_^
Ivy -- how sweet is Eve and Ivy?
Viola -- saying it vi-oh-lah -- like vi=eye
Thalia -- thay-lee-ahMother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy

You are welcome! Seraphima...It used to be hugely popular in Russia due the USSR times but just imagine, religion was prohibited in these times...I don't really know if it's over the top, there are a lot of girls named Angel/Angela/Angelina and I know a Sima(short for Seraphima) who is Christian so I am sort of guessing it's up to every parent.
I agree Anfisa is amazing, both un-fee-suh(Slavic) and anf-eye-suh pronunciations. If I am not mistaken, it is derived from Greek "anfos/anphos" meaning "flower" so it means either "blossom" or "flower". It's also a name beared by a few Christian martyrs.
And I love that Appellation article too; a ton of help. Vittoria is wonderful, but see I am kind of biased. Same with Sophronia(see signature), that's one of my favorites.
From your updated list I truly love Gwenore(again, in my signature), Gweneira, Saffron and Vittoria. Anatolia is pretty but I know more than one Anatoliy(male) so it's hard to imagine on a girl.
I am so interested to see what you finally decide on, you have such a distinctive, charming naming style!

I love Dahlia and don't think it's too close to an acquaintance named Dale. Vittoria could be interesting, and Via as nn is similar to Fia. I definitely think you could get Fia from Saffron and I adore Saffron. I think it would be wonderful with the older boys, although maybe a little too different next to Eve?? Fia grounds it a little, which is nice. Anatolia is too close to Anastasia in my opinion.
I was thinking Cleo/Clio but I think your DH doesn't like the o sound.
Cecily - seems similar to Lucy and Lily names to me
