Thanks ladies, I love all of the suggestions.. and I have a lot to think about.
I wasn't ever SET on Alivia, it was just one of the only names we agreed on.
NOTHING will be set I feel like, until this baby is born, so I have plenty of time thank goodness.
Hopefully, the little one I'm carrying is a boy.. but if not..
Alice may be my road to take.. unless when I go back over all the suggestions,
I find another A name that would go with Maren, or Marion, etc.
I just woke up, so I didn't read every single one just yet... lol.
Thank you to the OLIVIA who gave me some insight and background, I really appreciate it.
I've got a lot to think about! If you have any more suggestions of A names, feel free to shoot them
my way on this thread :] Thanks again!

Aliyah Grace... what about that ladies?
Ali in the name would honor Alice..
The first name starts with A and contains a Y, like our other children.
Grace- ends in E, which would continue the middle names ending in E like our other children. Grace would
also honor his Grandmother, as it's meaning is 'God's favor' which could go two ways.. one that we are super lucky to be
having a 5th child.. and it would remind me of his Grandmother in the fact that she was a very religious woman.
This would do three things at once.. What do you think? And what do you think of the spelling of Aliyah?
Is it okay or would you do Aaliyah? I don't have a preference.. I just think the shortened version looks better with our children's names. Literally popped in my head just NOW while starting my baby name list on this site. :]

We named DD after her great-great grandmother (still with us) Dorothy Isabelle - who also hated both of her names. However, we used Isabelle in that form - she still loves having a namesake even though she wasn't fond of her own name I say you are fine to use Mary or Alice or Mary Alice or Maren or whatever you choose, the point of a namesake is less the NAME and more the honor, right?
Of your names I love Alice the most but Alivia seems to fit with your others more, though I dont like it.

and even less now after OLIVIA posted. But I'm thankful for the insight. It
just made me think totally different. I don't want a child to feel funny
for having a misspelled name. All my other children, while they all don't have common
names they are spelled properly.
I really like Maren, but only if I can find another good A name.
I like Avery Maren, but hubby doesn't like Avery. Before his grandma passed,
I wanted to use Avery Kate. :[ Didn't work out as you can see, and we had
Ainsley Danae. But now that she's here, I'm in love with her name, and it fits her to a T.
I just thought of Aliyah Grace, in fact I just posted above your comment..
Could you read that and give me an opinion on that please?
