Avalynn--- Pretty, but I prefer just Ava. I adore Ava. It's gorgeous and spunky at the same time.
Harper-- Cute but not my favorite. I like it as a middle name.
Calla-- Seems incomplete to me.
Sequoia -- nn Seeka or Quoia--- NMS. I see it as more of a boy's name. But I do think Quoia is a cute nn.
Briar-- Lovely. The best pick with Lynn I think.
Io -- prn Eye-o. This is a dumb reason to not like a name, but it just seems too short.
Aya -- Ava is better.
Clementine -- Adore it! I like all of your nn preferences, especially Em and Eme (though I love the full out name).
Evangeline -- Love! Evie is adorable.
Luna-- Very cute! Reminds me of Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter and I love her character.
My favorites are Ava, Clementine, Evangeline, and Luna.Mama to Gabriel James 12.03.12

boyandgirl -- Clementine is a name I love but can't really explain why!
Matti12 -- thanks for the detailed input. I love the name Bodhi/Bo and every time I pull away from it I meander back. Can't be helped.
Saracita00 -- thanks. I never thought about Harper Lynn being so close to Harper Lee. Or Calla Lily / Calla Lynn. I do agree that with certain names it just doesn't work.
Marshmallow1207 -- I've noticed that Briar gets a lot of mixed reviews. When I think of Briar I think of Sweetbrier which is a beautiful wild rose that has thorns, yes, but beauty with an edge. Caia is a pretty alternative spelling for Kaya. Thanks!
Shilo -- yes! I love love those ones too. Gah.
Stlmama225 -- I think of Kaya, Aya and Ava I like Ava best too. This one has my mom's vote. I think it's funny that people one gripe with the name Io is that it is too short, as sound-wise it has two syllables. Just the look I guess.
Thanks everyone for the input so far!
With Evangeline I'm just a little off-put by the association with Evangelicalism. While we are not religious or around very many overly religious people and living in a very liberal state, my boyfriend does have family who is indeed Evangelical. Is this a deal breaker? Can't quite put aside so I'm thinking it is.

If I were to narrow it down to 3...
Ava: It's a little on the popular side, but since that doesn't bother you, I think it's classic and beautiful.
Clementine: I love the nn Mina!
Evangeline: I'm probably in the minority, but I like the -lyn ending as well as the -leen ending, if not more. Evie is really sweet, and Eva as a possibility is great, too* James * Henry * Baker * Ronan * Harry * Rhys * Shepard *
* Maisie * Beatrice * Sadie * Violet * Zoey * Mary * Caroline * Juniper *
