    I really like a lot of these!
    Adeline
    Esme
    Giselle
    Helena
    Isadora
    Liliana
    Luciana
    Maisie
    Marlow
    Mila
    Neve
    Rory
    Sadie
    Sasha
    Tatiana
    Valentina
    Violet
    Vivienne
    ....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:

    Adeline
    Delphine
    Esme
    Helena
    Josephine
    Liliana
    Lily
    Lisette
    Millie
    Seraphina
    Tatiana
    Violet
    Zara

    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.

    Hmm...
    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:
    Estee
    Helene
    Ilsa (I hope you mean Isla if so I like it)
    Lisette
    Luciana
    Magritte
    Matisse
    Mireille
    Molly
    Neve (love the Irish Niamh though)
    Odile
    Rory (as a nickname for Aurora yes but as a stand alone name no)
    Sasha
    Seraphina

    Favourite 'M' names:
    Magnolia
    Maisie
    Marlow/Marlowe
    Mila
    Millie

    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.

    My favorites:
    Lisette
    Delphine

    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.
