    I love all of these except Alannah.

    Henrietta - mostly for the nicknames: Etta, Hetty etc.
    Willa - sweet and vintage
    Orla - spunky!
    Isobel - nice, i'm a little tired of all its variations, but still classic
    Vera - pretty, underused

    I also love Sylvie and Lily, which would honor Sylvia or Lilian.

    I like:
    Henrietta
    Willa
    Isobel
    Sylvia
    Lilian

    I think it would be a great idea to use part of your grandmothers name in your daughters name (that is if she herself does in fact like her name and the idea of using it on a granddaughter) especially as she was so enthusiastic and helpful about the name process. As she is very enthusiastic about helping you find a name though, I would imagine/assume that she would prefer you use something original that you've both come across rather than hers as first, but using Sylvia/Sylvie or Lilian/Liliana as a middle name would be special.

    With the above names, I like the idea of Willa Sylvie and Henrietta Sylvia.
    Zena
    Ariadne
    & Emrys

    I adore the idea of Isobel Sylvia or Vera Lilian. I would love knowing that my great-grandmother helped pick out my name.
