I also vote for Seneca Rose! I love its uniqueness and the women's rights meaning stemming from Seneca Falls. I don't think it is "too unusual" in today's baby name world! A lot of people may not know what it is or what it means, but it is easy to pronounce and sounds similar enough to other commonly recognizable names like Jessica.
I would have the exact issues you mentioned with the other 3 names although all are pretty enough in their own ways.

Seneca, but Seneca Samuall... I don't know. For me, that's a little too much on the alliterative side.
And I really love Allegra, too. It was one of my first name-loves way back when, and then when that darn allergy medication came out and I saw a commercial for it, I was so bummed!! It's a beautiful name and never should have been used for a drug. Ugh. For me, the drug thing is a deal-breaker. For me. If you're sure it won't bother you, then it should stay in the running.
Alexandra and Aria really don't do it for me.
Now I'm starting to second-guess myself about the alliteration thing with Seneca... maybe it's a non-issue. It really is a great first name.
One thing to keep in mind is that while you have some lovely middle names on your list (Violet, Juliet, Genevieve, Aberdeen), the 3-3-3 syllable pattern for first, middle, last doesn't have the best ring to it. If that matters at all to you.
The only name I absolutely do not like is Emerson, even in the middle spot. It's trendy in the worst way, to me. Surname-name, masculine (means "son of Emery") pretending to be unisex when really it's not— I just can't get behind it in any way, shape, or form.
Anyway. I couldn't vote because my favorite combo wasn't on the poll—I like Seneca June. If Rose isn't a family name, it just feels like "filler" to me. Even though it does sound lovely with Seneca.Two pink lines means we're now planning and not just dreaming of names! First babe, due 4/17.
