Narrow down my long girls list!
We are expecting, and I want a name that complements my other daughters' names, but isn't too "matchy." We are not French, but by chance I picked French names the first two times.
First daughter is Monet Elisabeth and second is Mirabelle Sylvie. Another decision I'm trying to make is whether the new baby needs to have an M name. I don't want to be like those people who name all their kids Kyle, Kody, Karson, Kylie, etc, but I also don't want the new baby to feel like the odd man out if she's the only one without an M name. Thoughts?

2 in a row with M's and then the 3rd without might be a bit odd. I can see her feeling left out depending on her personality. It depends on how much it bothers you. I like these 2 the best if you decide to go with an M.
Magritte - this one definitely fits like a glove with your other two, if you go with an M I think it would be hard to find a better fit.
Marlow - I prefer the spelling without the e, I think this would be a nice way to keep the set from feeling too faux French
If you decide not to go with an M, I like these the best:
Dahlia - I think this could work nicely with your set
Lisette - I think this is a nice option
Adeline/Aveline - I personally prefer Aveline, but both are pretty
Beatrice - gaining popularity but I still think it's a nice option
Delphine - could work
Helena/Helene - lovely name
Isadora - pretty, could work
Liliana - popular and a bit simple, but maybe
Magnolia - might be a bit too country for your set, but it could maybe work
Violet - getting very popular
Flora - may be too simple and not fresh enough
Zara - maybe
Seraphina - hmm, maybe
Matisse - since you already have a painter name, I'd cut this.
Mireille - too close to Mirabelle, cut it
Cosette - definitely wouldn't use this, sort of akin to "Baby"
These just don't have the freshness of your other 2
A bit too simple next to Monet and Mirabelle
Mila - could also be a nn for Mirabelle, so I'd cut it
Far more country-fied than your other two, they'd feel like the odd man out to me
Very nicknamey compared to your other names:
EsteeLivy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas

If you think you'll have more children, break the "M" pattern. If you can't find an "M" name you love, there's nothing wrong with other letters of the alphabet. I think these names go well with Monet and Mirabelle. My faves are in bold.
Alessandra - The French Alexandrine is pretty too!
Cosette - there is also Colette?
Dahlia - Other exotic flower names are Azalea and Zinnia.
Isadora - have you considered Isabeau as an option?
Odile - Odette is another choice.
Seraphina - I prefer the French Seraphine. There is also Serafina.
Violet - there is also the French spelling Violette.
