Oooh I love the suggestion of Hollis for this sibset! It reads so sophisticated to me. 

What about Ellis or Carlisle (nn Carli) for a girl? or something like Elon for a boy?

In Response to Nolynn for a girl

I knew a girl named Jolyn and always thought it was pretty. 

I kind of think Nolynn would be a cute way to honor a Nolan, but not if there's a brother that could get that name.

In Response to Third Boy?

Kevin (Home Alone), Chris (Kringle?), Ignatius nn Nate (this one is out there, but it's in The Year Without a Santa Claus) 

Honestly not a fan of Ralph.

In Response to Love, Like, Lose girls

Love: Bridget (not sure why I'm such a fan of this one right now - just refreshing to hear all those consonants?), Alice (Definitely fits my granny naming style), Astrid (I'll be honest - I like this one because of a one time character on Doctor Who)

Like: Poppy (Cute, but probably not usable in my area), Briar (I hadn't heard this by itself, but it makes me think of Briar Rose/Sleeping Beauty so I'm into it), Valerie (I do sing the song in my head when I hear it, but I like the name)

Lose: Naomi (I actually think this one is very pretty, just not likely that I'd ever use it), Lola (she was a showgirl, yellow feathers in her hair...), Lucia (I think if I was going for Lucy as a nn I'd go with Lucille, but that's a family name for me)

New List: Bridget, Alice, Astrid, Poppy, Briar, Valerie, Sage, Gertrude, Corey

I love Owen and Max together!

Something to consider with your list is whether you'd want to establish a two-syllable ends in -n pattern. If so, I really like Mason and Collin as well, but Evan seems a little to close since it also starts with a vowel. 

Other suggestions: Theo, Ryan, or Blake

When making suggestions, I went with names that are kind of singular to me. I only know one Ainsley and she stands out in a positive way.

I wasn't sure how to go about finding a name that was so unique I hadn't heard it used.

Boys: Keegan, Weston, Jonas, Dash, or Stanley

Girls: Ainsley, Paxton, Kimber, Addison, or Lyra
