What do you guys think about
Emmeline: pn Emmaline - got it from The Blue Lagoon with Brooke Shields. I like Elle for her nickname.
I like Lilia Bronte or Emmeline Ciel. WDYT?
My husband suggested Forrest last night. I like it, but do you think Forrest Gump ruined this name?
We have also added these to our list. Thanks for your suggestions.

I don't like Emmeline with your other kids' names as much, and Lilia just looks like a misspelled Lily to me - Sorry! Of the two, my favorite is Emmeline Ciel, but I would nickname her Emme (M.E.)...
My favorites from your "new" list are Coralie (Bronte) and Tallulah (Harper), but I still really liked Avalon "Ava" Ciel.
Of your boy list, I think Everett and Beckett go best with Sawyer and August. I do agree that Forrest has been ruined by Forrest Gump associations.

Coralie - beautiful name, goes well with the siblings and a subtle nature-y theme
Aurora - lovely! my favorite on this list invokes the beauty of sunrises, has spunky nn Rory if you like - plus, Isla gets her princess name! :)
Soleil - also nice. The nature theme is a little stronger here I think, so it depends on what you like. With Isla, Sawyer and August, the associations are strong to you but do not immediately jump out, at least to me. Soleil is more direct imo.
Tallulah - nms but I see its appeal.
Hudson - really like this with Sawyer and August - this is my favorite
Emerson (boy) - I don't like that it's used by girls so much now but this may not bother you
Everett - nice but not my favorite
Beckett - cute! a second to Hudson
Quinn - ok. It is used by girls too
Griffin - I like Griffin and I like the nn Finn but I still think Sawyer and Finn is too much, even if Finn is just the nickname.
Forrest - I like this one but the nature theme is too overt imo (see Soleil). I don't think Forrest Gump ruined it though.
My votes: Aurora or Coralie and Hudson or Beckett.

Lilia: I think it's beautiful, but I also think it's too close to Isla. I know I'd personally get tongue-tied calling Isla and Lilia to dinner.
Emmeline: I absolutely love this name, but with the long I sound , I think it's too similar in sound to Isla, too. If you pronounce it Emma-lyn or Emma-leen, I can better see it with Isla.
From your combos, I like Emmeline Bronte or Emmeline Ciel because Isla and Lilia are too close in sound to me.
Forrest: I think it's very handsome, but I unfortunately to still think of Forrest Gump and the line, "Ruuuun, Faaaawr-rest! Run!"
I'd suggest Forrester or Fletcher, but they have Sawyer's ending sound. Hmm...
Coralie: I think this is so beautiful...
Soleil: Very interesting...I can better see some of the others with Sawyer and August, though. (I'm wondering if Soleil and August create a too obvious Summer theme...)
Tallulah: I like some of the others better with Isla, because Isla and Tallulah share the same ending sound.
Hudson: I think it's a great name...
Emerson (boy): I think it's a handsome name, but it's sadly more popular now on girls, which may or may not bother you.
Everett: I love this name so much!
Beckett: Very hansome...
Quinn: I think it's a great name, but I'm thinking it may be going to the girls...I like Quinlan, too...
Griffin: I think it's an awesome name!
I love so many of your names! :-)
