Suggest Names Based On My Favorites
I love the name Luna and Ezra. My fiance' isn't "in love" with either, but he is okay with the names. He likes the boy's name "Bryce" and I do too, but his name is Brendan and I wanted to avoid repeating first letters, so no B or D names. We also like Everett.
Euphemia (Euphie) - Fiance' doesn't like
Flora - Can't use (he has a niece named Nora, so we don't want to seem rhymey)
Michelle - Can't use (a close friend of mine's name)
Alice - Can't use (his sister's name is Allison, too closely related)
Emmett - Twilight reference deemed it unusable
Severus - Harry Potter reference, so fiance' hates it
Brielle (Brie) - Can't use (starts with B)
Nathaniel - Can't use (hate the nicknames nate/nathan)

Ezra is great, and I love Everett. Agree a million percent with your fiance on Euphemia. Really, it's pretty bad. What about Eugenie or Eugenia? Both more mainstream, but certainly not common.

Euphemia - I actually love this. I have a soft spot for the "eu" names, they're all so vintage and charming. Eudora (rhymes with Nora, but the extra syllable might help a little); Eulalia; Euna; Eurydice?
Flora - I think it's really cute. Fleur (the French version); Flor (the Spanish one)? Or other flowers like Jasmine; Violet?
Michelle / Brielle - Other "elle" endings like Claudelle; Estelle; Gabrielle; Giselle; Mirabelle; Zoelle?
Alice - I adore this! It's on my own list. Similar classics like Clara; Eve; Iris; Jane?
Emmett - Maybe Corbett?
Severus - A little much for me with the HP reference too, to be honest. HP has some great names, this isn't one. Similar ones might be Severin; Silas; Silvanus?
Nathaniel - Very classic yet interesting. Others like Lucas; Matthias; Nicholas; Raphael; Timothy?
I hope these help, good luck!

Euphemia - I love it, shortened to Effie (Scottish feel, if that helps)
Flora - Fleur (French) or Fflur (Welsh) instead. Or Florence? All lovely.
Michelle - It depends why you like it (sorry, it's one of my least faves!) You could go down the French line, or look for 'el' sound at the beginning, middle or end of a name. Too many to list!
Alice - This is sweet and simple. Eliza?
Emmett - Edmund
Severus - Ummmm. Sirius?
Brielle (Brie) - See the Michelle above
Nathaniel - reminds me of traditional boys names from my yoof - Christopher? William? Daniel?

I like Effie, but it's my aunt's English name, deeming it unusable unfortunately. I'm not close to my aunt, but she and my mom don't get along at all and I don't want her to think I took the name from her....
Fleur is also an HP reference so I don't think my fiance' will like it.... he's not a fan of famous book character names, so Sirius is out as well
I have a friend named Elizabeth so Eliza might be too close to that....
I like Michelle just because of the sound really, as much as I like Michelle and Brielle, there aren't very many -elle endings that I like. I don't like Isabelle, Clarabell, Annabel, Arabelle, etc.... They just don't sound pretty... in my opinion that is
