I think this may be region dependent, I personally know 4 Magnolias, all under the age of 9. (PNW here)
This is a dilemma for me too (at least in my head as #3 is not on the way and may never be).Both have 4 syllable names with 9 and 10 letters each. Plus we ended up with Greek based names (didn't plan that) that start with vowels.
We named our planes with physicist's names.Our first is a Lake Amphibian that is an awkward plane that is also very heavy. In one of the books specifically about the plane, it said something to the effect of: When the engine is off, the plane's glide slope is that of a dead cat.
Boom! Schrodinger was born.Now we have a twin engine Seneca that we were arguing about what we should name it. I thought Pavlov could work since this plane has far more "bells and whistles" than the other and DH is constantly drooling over it. He didn't like that because it was a behavioral scientist. He finally came across a name yesterday that I had previously suggested but he had dismissed. Thus, it is now dubbed Godel. Two universes, it travels more than twice the speed of the other which makes it feel like time travel to us. ;-)
Ok--I'm going to leave out my kid's names because then I get to play around.

DD just brought home a new book with 12 dancing princesses.

Did her adoptive parents name her "Zetta" or did she come with the name from her birth parents? How old was she when she was adopted? Is her name part of her new family culture or from her birth culture?
Congratulations! I love that he's your Max!
You can also do Annie from names ending in -anne/a
So Julianna, Breanne, Marianne, Roxanne, Suzanne/Susannah, etc.That may open things up a bit for you. You can go to the name finder on this site, and put "ann" under the "Must contain this letter sequence" to get a wide variety of names with "ann" somewhere in them.
Personally, I would avoid Evangeline with a Gabriel since those are the love interests in Longfellow's poem.I needed to say goodbye to Gabrielle/Gabriel once we decided on Evangeline for our daughter.
I did think "Clear shot".
Would you be open to maybe Clara? The -uh at the end breaks it up for me.
Congratulations! Lovely name addition!
Hello and welcome back! I just recently came back myself, alas, not with a potential name to ponder.
I look forward to the process!
Congratulations! And well done! ((hugs)) on the NICU and preemies. My oldest had a 22 day stay. (You'd never know looking at him now though!)
