Priya is an adorable name. To me, it doesn't seem odd at all. If I met a little girl named Priya that wasn't Indian, I would just think that her parents have awesome taste and don't care what other people think!
I love Welsh names and want to use one for my future child. My name is Welsh, but I am not Welsh. Personally I think that it shouldn't matter, if you love the name. Some lovely Irish names are difficult to spell though. For example, I love Siobhan, but hate the spelling and I don't want to butcher it by spelling it Shevonne either...
Suggestions for Annabel's sister:
Magdalene or Magdalena
Raquel or Rochelle
Lucinda or Lucille (Lucy)
Too quirky? Or just right?

With your sibset, I think Priya would make a better mn. What about Elizabeth Priya or Madeline Priya? Also, what about Liza instead of Eliza? In terms of a name that's traditional with a little bit of quirk, what about one of the following:
Actually, I really like Caleb, Annabel, and Phoebe for a sibset as they all have the "e" and "b" sounds in different ways. Phoebe Claire is a pretty name.

Thanks so much! I adore Liza. I wonder if it could stand on its own, though? It does make me like Elizabeth a little more to get Liza as a nickname. I really like Alice, Cassandra, Cecilia, and Clementine, though DH only agrees on Alice. We've shied away from A and C names since we already have a Caleb and Annabel. Miranda and Phoebe were both on our lists (Miranda on DH's and Phoebe on mine), but didn't overlap. Miranda is growing on me a bit though. Could Minnie work as a nickname for Miranda?
Also, Isla was on DH's list, and I'm giving it a second thought. I like it, but not sure I like how quickly it shot up in popularity. No fun nicknames, either. Hmm...
ETA: Margaret and Louisa are also favorites of mine that DH has vetoed. He's so picky!
