Does This Sibling Set Work?

I am writing a modern AU FF about A Song of Ice and Fire that revolves around businessman Ned Stark and his two secret families where one of them are oblivious to another. 

Robb, Rickon, Sansa, Arya, and Bran are all the same as his children from Catelyn Tully Stark. So no question about that. But our Ned Stark here has another family and another wife. For them I tried to modernize the names of two characters a bit. But may require some help. 

Ned's second batch of children are Jon, Lyra, Flint, and Abner. Do you think they sound good? Would Valeria/Valerie or just Allyria - maybe Allyson even - would be better? What is your favorite between Edric, Abner and Arthur?

I haven't read A Song of Ice and fire or watched GoT so take what I think with a grain of salt. I like both Allyria and Valeria, but I can't comment about what sounds better in-universe. Valerie is plain in my opinion next to Valeria.

I don't think Allyson works particularly well, I think it looks like a creative respelling of Allyson (unless that's what you were going for).

My favourite for you of the boys' names is Edric, but I like Abner too, Arthur is less interesting to me but still nice.

Thank you I am still toying with the names - Jon, Flint, Edric then? For boys. And does Jon, Valeria, Flint, and Edric sounds good?
