For something uncommon with a V, I like Vida. I know Matthew McConaughey used it but that's the only time I've heard it. I also love the suggestion of Fiorella, which means 'little flower' and sounds so nice to me! It's also something I've never heard in 'real life' but if she decided she hated having an uncommon name, she could go by Ella.
I would also like to suggest Sofonisba. There is a forgotten-about female Italian Renaissance artist named Sofonisba Anguissola who was actually really important in her time. (I love the idea of a girl having such a great female role model!) But besides that, I've never heard the name Sofonisba being revived, at least not in English-speaking countries. (Anyone else is free to jump on the popularity in Italy or elsewhere.) Also, like Fiorella, she could go by Sofie if she hated having such an uncommon name. I bet most people you meet have never heard the name, but it's a bonus that it's a name with such great history. And Giovanna and Sofonisba sound darling together!
Hope this helps! :-)Current loves:Adelaide | Antonia | Charlotte | Emilia | Estelle | Fiammetta | Isobel | Ravenna | Susannah | Ursula | ViolaAnton | Asa | Bennett | Boone | Caspian | Ezra | Francis | Gideon | Leo | Theodore | Vincent | Winslow

Eek, I'm in the same situation as you - sucks, right? You've got an older daughter together - what other names were you considering for her that you both liked? Maybe you could revisit those and see if you can work out other names that have things in common that you both like or want in a name.
