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.Newlywed and will be TTC soon.
Currently thinking of:
Mattias Graham, Cassian James, Asa Nathaniel, Macsen Henry
Leonora Pearl, Aurelia Sarai, Felicity Susanna, Camellia Mae
