Middle Name Suggestions for Emilia

We're expecting baby 2 this Christmas.  Our first born's name is Charlotte Grace Acosta (Lolly).  If we're having a boy it will be named after my husband, Anthony Manuel Acosta, Jr. (AJ). 

Our top girl's name is Emilia Acosta  (Emmie).  I'm looking for a middle name that would flow nicely, but also coordinate with Charlotte.  The names I think of emphasize the Spanish too heavily (Cristina, Sophia) and I need something that will have a little American / Southern charm to it in my opinion.  Please help!

Also,  my favority middle name would be Emilia Vivienne, but my husband doe not care for it. 

Thoughts?  Can I change his mind?

Like many of the regulars around here, I prefer middle names with some significance to the parents -- something beyond "it sounded good and your daddy didn't hate it". Are there any family members or friends you'd like to honor? A place, color, flower, or other concept that's important to you?

Perhaps another virtue-type name to coordinate with Grace: Joy, Faith, Hope -- or maybe even Constance?

Another tack: what's your name? If a boy will be named after daddy, perhaps a girl should be named after mommy.

I like the idea of a name that coordinates with Grace, like the previous person suggested. Emilia Hope? I also like Emilia Rose. Emmie Rose sounds lovely too.
