My first thought is Cecily. It's the English form of Cecilia, and has only ranked in the U.S. top 1000 a few times. https://www.behindthename.com/name/cecily/top/united-states

How similar-sounding? Do you mostly care about the consonants, or about the number of syllables?

Emily seems to fit some of your criteria. Is it too common? Have you considered a hyphenated name, maybe like Tessa-Lee or Esther-Lee? 

Others: Ettaly (or spelled Edalie?), Jessaly, Tessaly, Thessalyn, Tressaly

I have a hard time with Th and S in the same word sometimes, so I find Thessaly challenging to say. My favorite th-sound name is Theodosia, which is certainly unusual, and Thora is another super choice. (My favorite name that begins with a Th is Thomasina, though, though it's missing the sound.)

Other names that strike me as having some similar sounds or rhythms: Thisbe, Persephone, Circe.
