Need help naming a sib-set

I'm still in the begining of my story, but it basically follows the diaries of 7 sisters as growing up in a house full of girls. 

Here's the names that I have figured out:

 

Hadley

Alice

Whitney

Ophelia

Madeleine

 

I only need two girl names (these two are 17 years old) twins, that fit the above.

Thank you :)

Real-life sib sets are often eclectic, so this may be a realistic detail, but to me, Whitney and Hadley are from a totally different universe than the other three names. Ophelia is saved from complete outlier status by its literary character reference, which is a nice subtle theme linking Alice and Madeleine (although Hamlet is a rather different sort of work from Alice in Wonderland and Madeline).

Continuing the children's literature theme, there's Charlotte, Frances, Sally, Lucy or Susan, Eloise, Olivia, Amelia, Harriet, Ramona, Matilda, Coraline...

The "names from children's literature" theme has been percolating in the back of my mind for days now. I looked through a bunch of "all-time best" lists, and decided to restrict myself to title characters (as in, the name is in the title -- or the name IS the title). I also restricted it to books that I've at least heard of.

Charlotte ('s Web)
Harriet (the Spy)
Alice (in Wonderland)
Olivia (the pig)
Madeline
Eloise
Frances (Bread and Jam for)
Amelia (Bedelia)
Pippi (Longstocking)
Heidi
Martha (Speaks; George and)
Anne (of Green Gables)
Ramona (the Pest)
Matilda
Margaret (Are You There God It's Me)

And for completeness, some boy's names:

Harold (and the Purple Crayon)
Peter (Rabbit; Pan)
Alexander (and the Terrible ... Day)
George (Curious; and Martha)
Horton (Hears a Who)
Charlie (and the Chocolate Factory)
Harry (Potter)
Tom (Sawyer)
Ferdinand (The Story of)
Arthur (the aardvark)
Stuart (Little)

Okay so I don't know if you like the idea of the similar sounding names or not, I usually do, but that is up to you.  So I'm going to list a few combinations in that fashion, and then a few of the same names just paired with others that don't sound similar.

Elisa and Erica

Lea and Luna

Tara and Talia

Kristina and Kara

Clarissa and Christine

Joanna and Julie

Now

Penelope and Vivian (my favorite combination I came up with)

Talia and Lea/ Luna

Cara and Elisa

Lisa and Sandra

Laura and Daphne

 

I don't really know what theme you're going for here or what the characters personalities are like... but if you're like me, no one's suggestions are actually what you want but somewhere in there something sparks an idea for the names you wanted all along.  Anyway I hope this helps.
