I'll admit that the first thing on my mind when hearing Violet and Rose was a Keeping Up Appearances reference: "Where's Daisy and Hyacinth?"
That said, it's definitely a sibset with a clear theme with a pedigree, so I don't think it's a problem.
My mind immediately split the difference to suggest Analytica Lemma. Don't listen to that.
I think Veronica Laura has the best cadence of the choices, and I'd go with that. The "-a Emma" combo is a potential tripping point, as is "-a Ana-".
I could imagine Peregrine making a comeback today, if someone is looking for a compromise between a softer-sounding name and Falcon.
I love Gwendolyn. I'd love to see it get more use.
Lily and Sophie stand out as names that are popular in Germany now and for school-aged children in Australia. Furthermore, they're on the Icelandic list. However, would they feel German to an Australian?
One other name that checks all these boxes, and has the added benefit as a compromise choice for a vetoed Elsa: Ella.
Non-Biblical, goes with Charlotte Olivia, like Levi or Eli, fairly traditional?
Oliver, Valerius (nn Val), Basil, Alfred, Evan, Eugene, Ivar, Ignatius, Liam, Leo?
Zeke is the classic nickname for Ezekiel, and yet it still carries rakish appeal today. I say go for it.
I'd have expected to see Circe on the list. Perhaps not a real siren per se, but she is definitely heavily associated with all manner of sea creatures.
Speaking of which, a super-daring but on-trend name would be Scylla.
I have to ask: Would "A bear eats a berry" repeat?
Subtle Halloween names?
Catrina sounds normal enough, but it's also the name of La Calavera Catrina, the famous illustration of a female skeleton dressed up that has become the main symbol of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos. Unfortunately, it would have passed muster in Anglo communities until Hurricane Katrina.
Kali has gained traction despite popular depictions of the Indian goddess.
Although Samhain is well-known enough as the Celtic pagan source for Halloween, it's actually pronounced closer to "Savin" or "Sawin."
The big thing is to remember that Halloween is just the first day of a three-day Catholic holiday: All Hallows' Eve (aka Hallowe'en), All Hallows' Day (or All Saints Day), and All Souls' Day. As the vigil to all the saints and holy, there's a lot of subtle references that can be made in that space.
I feel like the real issue is that -LINE is probably not a trendy pronunciation in your area, so people are going to assume that that's not the way to pronounce Emmeline, no matter how you spell it. It's likely down to being in a -LEEN pocket, like others have said.
In any case, you most definitely did not name your daughter wrong. Her name is Emmeline, and others can adjust, once they know the pronunciation. In many ways, it'll be a blessing. You (and she) will be able to tell from the moment they mention your daughter's name whether they're someone who knows her or not.
Avery and Mila are popular right now (as others have pointed out). In general, there's lots of vowel sounds, lots of L, and lots of V. (A little surprised V is still up there, but it is.)
To get around that, but still remain in the same place as Avery/Mila, how about Mira? It's in the 500s right now popularity-wise, and it is charging up the charts, so it will be recognizable but still not in the too-popular group.
You want something biblical that you're familiar with.
He wants something trending Celtic and unique, but still identifiable.
More familiar suggestions: Damian, Elias, Glenn
Less familiar: Uriel, Shadrach, Finn
In any case, pointing out these particular interests is key. And "weird" is very subjective.
I wouldn't worry about Indiana. An Indiana I know is a dancer with a major company and no one I've met bats an eyelash at it. She's American, but born in Paris.
The old traditional trends in naming I tend to think of is that boys need to be trusted in business, and girls need to be desirable spouses (Old. Traditional. I know.). As a result, the boys' names are pulled from the same old list of societally approved names over generations, while the girls' names need to change up each generation because youth is important for spousal choice (can't be thought of as a grandma with grandma's name).
Today, however, with the vast interconnectivity of people, the need to be recognized, and diversity in the workplace, boys no longer need to remain in the carefully curated short list to be trusted. Indeed, being able to be identified against a broadening backdrop is necessary. Hence, new naming conventions.
For girls, entry into business is increasingly important, so the same pressures on boys' names exist on girls' names, too. But there's still the youthful, beautiful, felicitous flair. At least, that's what this trend looks like, to me.
So a quick question: Palisade: Boy's or Girl's name?
The winner of the 2018 Olympic pairs figure skating competition was Aljona Savckhenko of Germany, with Aljona pronounced Al-yo-na. I wouldn't think it too bizarre, and Alyona is a good English transliteration, although I've also seen Aliona very frequently.
Although it's not specifically on the list, I have met a Prophet. I told him I like the name, and he replied that it's a lot to live up to.
I think Ivy Lind sounds fine to me. If there's any hiccup for me, it's the consonant mashup at the end with Ivy Lind W... but that's not a construction that's going to be encountered often. Also, Ivy Lind W. by itself is not a problem.
I think it'll work.
If you're worried about the sound of Enid, a similar name with more contemprary sounds would be Elin. Or, you could drop the final D and use Ina.
I always felt Jebediah was a natural extension of Jedidiah meeting Obadiah.
