Gwyneth "Gwyn, Wyndy" is really lovely and I see it working with the rest of the group. Rose is superbly sweet, but also superbly simple and it can be hard to reconcile the simplicity when you look at fabulously complex names like many in this thread. But Rose and Eve work together. I'll just leave this here, beautiful song: Irish Folk Song - Red is the Rose - YouTube.
Alright, if you are done with suggestions let me know, but I have another batch for consideration...
Altisidore - from Don Quixote
Angharad - "Harry, Angie, Addie"
Brunhilda, Brünnhilde - "Bruna, Rue, Rune, Runa, Hilda, Hildy"
Clarinda - "Clary"
Diantha - "Dia"
Endelienta, Endelient, Edellienta, Endellion
Fidessa - "Fia"
Gloriosa - a type of daisy - "Glory, Gloria, Rio" or maybe "Rose"?
Gwennan - "Gwen"
Hannelore - "Hanna, Nell, Lore, Lorie"
Jacaranda - "Carrie"
Judith - "Judy, Jude"
Verbena - "Bee, Vera"
I'll also mention Viorica again and suggest the nickname Fia for it, a bit of a stretch but it could work.

GENERAL UPDATE: Some really good discussion here and very helpful! I ran the last two lists of new ideas by hubby and he vetoed them all (they were…non mainstream).
But I do have a couple of new items I’d like comments on:
Fia-Rose. Is this a stupid idea?
Vanessa. Is it as dated as I think it is?
Other options still hanging on: Gwenyth, Gwendolyn, Scarlett, Rose, Daisy, Willow, Serafina
Middle name favorites at the moment: Shenandoah, Edelweiss, Roxanne, Quinn, Serafina, Marigold, Livny, Pegeen, Beatrix, Iverine, Dulcinea.
