Now I have "The Joker" by the Steve Miller Band in my head
"Some people call me Maaaur-ieeece".
What about Sylvan for the male dryad? He could use Van as a nickname, especially around humans.
I pronounce them differently. I say Laura with the first syllable rhyming with car and far; the first syllable in Lora would rhyme with oar. I was born, raised, and live in a Mid-Atlantic state. My guess is that this would vary by region in the U.S.
Utah stood out to me, Oaklee, Navy, Indie, and Kate.
I had a great-Aunt named Ruth whose nickname was Polly. Her sister was named Alta Elsie but was never called Alta (at least when I knew her, I didn't even know that was her first name until I saw it in the family bible), she went by either Elsie or her nickname, Gippy.
In the next generation, my dad was named Lee, partly because my grandmother didn't want him to have a nickname. All the neighbor kids called him Jake.
Thought I'd help you out:
U & X- even google can't find anything.

Some of my favorite books are Louise Erdrich's first five novels: Love Medicine, Beet Queen, Tracks, Bingo Palace, and Tales of Burning Love. These loosely interconnected stories take place on a fictional American Indian reservation and the nearby town of Argus in North Dakota. Some of my favorite character names are Lulu Lamartine, Fleur Pillager, June Morrisey, Albertine Johnson, and twins Eli and Nector Kashpaw. The names do a great job of conveying the characters ethnic backgrounds and their personalities. They also contribute to the novels' sense of place and time.
Louise Erdrich's other novels are also very good, but the names and stories of these five have stuck with me for years after reading them. In fact now I want to reread them.
Or Romilly could be a similar sounding alternative.
I also like Sofie Selene the best of your choices. My suggestion is Sofie Skye.
I think the spelling Addalea is the most likely to get the desired pronunciation, although I think Adalea looks prettier. Is the pronunciation more important to you than how it looks?
I recently became aware of two families with a Willow and an Owen.
Beverly > Everly
Renee > Esme
Beth > Bethany
Jill > Jillian
Jennifer > Genevieve
June > Juniper
Melody > Elodie
Edith > Eden
And now I'm stumped.
Say: Hello there Caledon, you're a cutie, aren't you?
Think: Hmmm, haven't heard that one before. Not sure what to think, maybe it will grow on me.
Next name: Milo (boy)
If you compare them by sound alone, they are very similar, but yes, culturally and historically they are very different.
I like Sofie Sky/e. I think the k sound adds a crispness that balances out all the soft sounds in Sofie and Sarah.
Martina + Rosalie = Martalie
Zoe + Genevieve = Zovieve (I'm actually kind of digging this one if I prounounce vieve the French way)
Juniper + Sylvie = Junivie
Rayna + Jillian = Raylian
Finn + Oliver = Finiver
Milo + Gideon = Mileon
I'm crushing on Gemma Sloane.
