Hi would love some help naming our very soon to be born third child as finding it so hard this time around....especially for boys!
So we already have a Brayden Jack and a Tahlia May and would like to stick with a similar theme - longer modern first name (more than one syllable) and short more traditional middle name. Our surname is long and starts with L so probably not a first name starting with L (shame cause I love Leila, Lila, Levi and Lachlan!)
On our very short list already is:
Holly grace or Isabelle Jade (still thinking of other mns to go with these)
Riley Dane or DH loves Jake Thomas but IMO doesn't go with our other kids names....
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Riley Dane goes great!! I agree Jake Thomas isn't as good a fit. What about Jackson/Jaxon Thomas?
I prefer Isabelle Grace to Isabelle Jade or Holly

I like Holly Grace - goes best with the other 2 - although Isabelle is nice too Isabelle Kate/Isabella Kate
Riley Dane goes or Riley Jake

I like Holly but really dislike Grace, especially in the MN position. Not a fan of Isabelle at all, or any of the -Belle or -Bella names. I think Holly Jade is a much more unusual, and use able, combo.
Have to say, I agree with your DH and greatly prefer Jake to Riley - although both MNs are preferable to the Fns. How about Dane Thomas?

I love love love Holly Grace (I have a Grace, and Holly has been on my shortlist for years). I also second Imogen, and through Genevieve in the ring.
For a boy I think Jake is too traditional to suit your modern names, maybe Jye or Jude instead?

Holly Grace and Riley Dane certainly fit well.

With Brayden Jack and Tahlia May:
Mason Eric OR Hudson Jude
Chelsea Louise OR Ella Grace

From your list I like both of your girls names but slightly prefer Holly Jade.
I love both your boys names but I'm not a fan of Dane with Riley.
How about Riley James or Jake Riley?
I think Jake Thomas sounds great
All names sound fine with your children's names.
