    Seeing as you have Leela and Lilia, may I put Lelia forward as well? A very real and very classic name as well as right in the middle of two of your favourites :-)

    Luella - Has a lot of vintage spunk
    Rosella - reminds me of rubella virus (German measles).
    Marta - I knew a woman named Marta who spelled it this way (she was of Ukrainian heritage). I like this spelling rather than the more clunkier sounding Martha. Marta just sounds "lighter".
    Noelia - Too frilly.
    Leela - I prefer Leila (lay-la).
    Magnolia - I like this name better in the middle spot after a short fn (eg. Jane Magnolia)
    Keeley - I have an irrational aversion to "K" names (especially ones that say their Irish and the spellings are not)
    Junia - A rare Biblical gem that's feminine but not overly frilly
    Livia - I love this Italian beauty.
    Beatrice - I slightly prefer the older Latin version of Beatrix but this name is fine too.
    Inez - I don't care for this spelling. I do love Ines because I think it's softer.
    Genevieve - One of my favourite French names for a girl.
    Hazel - Ok but it's not my favourite colour or nature name.
    Lilia - See Noelia
    Betsy - As a full name, it's too cutesy to age well.
    Matisse - Sounds pretentious even if you can appreciate the artists work.
    Calais - Unless this French place name has some special meaning for you, I would take a pass.
    Jacqueline - Ok but "dated".
    Henrietta - Clunky. I prefer Harriet nn Hattie.

    Frost - Better in the middle spot.
    Arlo - I love names ending in "o".
    Mordecai - A cumbersome Biblical name.
    Henri - I prefer Henry. Unless you're French, the French pronunciation may sound pretentious.
    Keats - See Frost.
    Guthrie - See Frost. And definitely can't have an Arlo and a Guthrie in the same family!
    Solomon - It's long but I still think it's more useable than Mordecai.
    Hugo - I WANT to like it but all I think of when I see/say it is huge.
    Orion - I like this name alot and I can see it for a fn or a mn choice.
    Mathison - Too surnamey. If it's a family name, use it in the middle spot.
    Kason - Yikes! Too trendy by far! Cason is bad enough but the "K" really turns me off.
    Zebulon - A cool Biblical rarity.
    Porter - I prefer it in the middle spot.
    Flynn - Has a lot of Irish spirit.
    Jacob - It's nice but overpopular for ages.
    Rupert - One of my favourite names that sound "oh so British".
    Maxwell - Love it.
    Julius - I prefer Julian but Julius is majestic too!
    Davis - I prefer David. Davis would be ok in the middle spot if it's a family name.
    Charles - A classic, traditional choice and I love the nn Charlie.
    All the best,
