Clara and Oliver are getting a sibling...and mama and daddy have no idea what to name
Hub and I are expecting baby number 3 in October and are completely stumped for a name. Our 6 year old is Clara Margaret (boys name we had picked out was Ethan) our 3 year old son is Oliver Michael (girls name was olivia) we agreed on those relatively quickly, but can't agree on a name for either gender this time around! (Our nephews name is Ethan, so now that's out)
Girls names we like:
Elena (I love it, hub hates it)
Camilla (don't love it, but my maiden name started with cami, and would love to include it in a kids name)
Amelia (have a niece named Mia, worried that its too similar)
Our last name is 1 syllable and ends in s, which eliminates my long time favorite Lucas.
Any advice, and mn suggestions would be helpful.

Clara, Oliver, and...
Elena - works for me
Camilla - not usually my thing but kind of fantastic with Clara
Harper - doesn't fit
Ellery - doesn't fit
Anna - marvelous! fits beautifully
Stella - great name, not sure I like it with Clara--it feels different
Audrey - I like this better with Stella than I do with Clara, but it's nice with Oliver
Vada - doesn't fit
Piper - doesn't fit
Phoebe - very charming fit
Josephine - oh yes, this is wonderful; I love the nn Josie with your kids
Amelia - very nice fit, not too close to Mia in my mind
Clara, Oliver, and...
Graham - oh that's just fantastic
Colin - I really adore this one
Jack - fits nicely, great name, less surprising than Colin or Graham
Bennett - fits very well, great name
Quinn - it fits but I'm hesitating--not sure why
William - fantastic with them
Nathaniel - a good choice
Thomas -- a good choice
Harry - works very well, but I'd prefer Henry nn Harry
What about Frederick? Diana also comes to mind.

I like Audrey and Stella for the girls (and Amelia but it naturally lends itself to the nickname Mia which is out)
Audrey is nice and classic like your other childrens names.
Stella sounds like a classy version of all the other -ella names so prevalent.
For boys I like Bennett, Quinn and Nathaniel.
Nathaniel being my favorite
