I really like a lot of these!
....are my favorites from your list.
As far as same letter names go, I have 4 kids starting with A, and it didn't ever bother me. I am now pregnant with #5, and
since this is the last, I will continue with the A's.. If I knew I'd continue and have 19 kids like the Duggars [no offense just an example],
I'd switch it up and throw more letters in. I think if you find a name you love with a different letter, go for it! It's not going to make
any of them "odd". People think that is why I continue the A names, but it's really simply because we love so many names that begin with A so we just "are in luck" continuing with what we started.

Do you plan on having more children after this one? If so, I would definitely break the trend now. Or you could just keep with the French theme, and choose a different first initial (like Monet, Mirabelle, and Cosette?)--that way they still "go" together but aren't really matchy. I know a family with a Haley, a Hannah, and a Morgan, and no one seems to notice. I think it's fine.
From your list, I like:
The best. I like Mireille (and even more, Mirielle) a lot, but I find Mirabelle and Mireille to be too similar for sisters. I think Millie's adorable, and I think it could tie to Monet and Mirabelle, but I would give it a fuller name. What about Amelie? You could use Millie as a nn; the French pronunciation is ah-MILL-ee. I think it's charming, and Monet, Mirabelle, and Amelie/Monet, Mirabelle, and Millie would be really sweet together.Ashley

To be honest I dislike sibling sets that contain two 'M' names and one 'S' for example. I think sibling sets like Monet, Mirabelle, and Vivienne would be strange and Vivienne would feel like the left one out. I would use another 'm' name, so visually the sibling set works. I really don't think using another 'M' name would create a cheesy sibling set as the names themselves aren't cheesy.
I adore most of the names on this list!! I'm going to state the names I dislike as the list would go on forever if I stated all the names I love on it.
So my least favourites are:
Ilsa (I hope you mean Isla if so I like it)
Neve (love the Irish Niamh though)
Rory (as a nickname for Aurora yes but as a stand alone name no)
Favourite 'M' names:
My favourite with your children's names is Magnolia. Monet Elisabeth, Mirabelle Sylvie, and Magnolia sound brilliant together.
If I was you I'd go with Magnolia!!

I'd get rid of:
Magritte and Mattise - another painter, plus more M's I think is too much.
Mireille = too matchy with same beginning as Mirabelle and same ending sound as Monet
Esme - for some reason Esme and Monet bother me together.
Because these to me seem the most French sounding and I feel like you can stop the M trend but it would be nice to have something that sounds very French so it doesn't seem like a complete departure with both non-M and non-French. And I know like Vivienne is French, but is a lot more mainstream and widely used in English.
