Isla (my 1st daughter) and Hamish have always been my definites when it comes to sibsets.  
Although we plan to have three and i just can't find a name for possible no. 3 that sticks. The two that have probably stuck in my head the longest have been either Laurel or Indigo (girl).
Others include:
GIRL
Isabella
Caroline
Nelle
Alessia
Anya
Vienna
Ava

BOY
Niall
Reid
Owen

Thoughts? Advice? Names that aren't on the list that would go with Isla & Hamish.
I want a complete sibset that flows and sounds great together.

Thanks

GIRL
Indigo- lovely, but not with Isla. I'd avoid a second I first name.
Laurel- ok, but I don't think it's as pretty as Isla
Isabella- ditto Indigo
Caroline- ditto Laurel
Nelle- dislike, and I'd be beyond disappointed if I was lumped with Nelle and my sister got Isla
Alessia- ok
Anya- ditto Laurel and Caroline, I also think this sounds too rhymey or something with Isla
Vienna- lovely
Ava- lovely

BOY
Niall- dislike
Reid- ok
Owen- nice

Vienna, Ava and Owen are probably the only ones there that I'd even consider with Isla and Hamish as first names. I'd go for Vienna over Ava though.

Definitely Duncan! Such a lovely Scottish theme you've got, would be a shame to break the trend. Angus fits nicely, too. Fiona?

I wouldn't go with another I name.

I like Alessia from your list, but not with Isla.

Owen is ok from your boys list..

Some I would use would be:

Isla, Hamish and:

Felicity
Ruby
Bridget
Juliet

Reuben
Nicholas
Jeremy
Benjamin

Isla and Hamish is such a quintessential Scottish sibset that I think you have to go Scottish for the third.

Niall is good but maybe a bit close to Isla. Reid fits the Scottish bill but there are better ones for the sibset I think.  None of the others fit the Scottish bill.   Isobel would but again maybe something else with Isla.


Ideas:

Angus
Lachlan
Finlay/Finley
Cameron
Fraser
Ewan
Dougal
Callum
Fergus
Edwin
Innes

Elspeth
Enya
Seona
Rhona
Greer
Ainsley

For girls;

Genevieve, Adelaide, Abigail, Emma and Elise

For boys;

I'm not sure if my list is particularly Scottish though! Good luck with baby #3!
