I would pick a J name, for symmetry reasons.

Jeri
Jinty
Juniper

From your list, I like Mabel.

Mabel Clementine is beautiful and fits so well with your other kids. I adore Harriet too!

I'm liking Rose, but maybe it does't go with Daisy? My other pick would be Quinn.

With your kids I like Rose, Maeve, Quinn and Raine.

I like Maeve and Olive best

maybe with 1 syllable to match Dash

June
Jean
Joy
Jane
Joss
Joyce
Jan
Jewel

Cleo is cute. Mabel has grown on me a lot. I also like Mae/May/Mei and Belle as stand-alone names.

Opal
Zella
Fay
Fern
Celeste
Raina
Lila
Mira or Kira
Blythe
Juno
Jade
Rei
Sibyl
Emerald
Hazel
Clare

Clementine makes a great middle with a short clear first. But Quinn Clementine doesn't do it for me because of the assonance.

Stella is the one that jumped out of your list for me. Has a similar feel to Dash, somehow.

Agree with others that I'd be deeply tempted to go with a "J" name- Jade or Jess maybe?

#15 ElsaM

The only one from your list that I really don't like is Chile.  The others are fine, and seem to go well with your other kids' names.  Not my style, but fine.

Except for Quinn, which is totally awesome and you should definitely use it :yes:

#16 Ianthe

Posted 18 February 2017 - 02:47 PM

Stella and Cleo are by far the stand outs on your list. Great with your kids.

#17 BBC

Posted 18 February 2017 - 03:04 PM

From your list I would choose Rose Clementine.

I like the idea of both girls having flower names.

Excellent list of names! I particularly like Mabel, Clementine and Stella.

Some other names: Calla, Hazel, Opal, Miranda, Miriam

Names I like are:
Wren
Raine
Ursula
Eugenie

Inez
Esther

Lovely names. I like lots of them, many becoming popular names.

If you decide to go with a J name another suggestion is Jasmine - which also goes with the plant/flower girl names :)

#21 Sarzie

Posted 18 February 2017 - 07:35 PM

I think Stella is gorgeous with your other children's names.

#22 HippyDippyBaloney

Posted 18 February 2017 - 08:15 PM

I have a Clementine so I may be slightly biased, but this one gets my vote.

I also love Olive, Stella, Maeve and Rose.

Other suggestions..

Margaux
Astrid
Violet
Iris
Winsome 'Winnie'
Frankie

I was thinking this too. I like Raine and Maeve.

Also like PP's suggestion of Rose (flower theme for your girls)

#24 Astrocyte

Love Clementine and Mabel. Next favourites are Olive, Maeve, Rose and Quinn.

I would pick Mabel :wub:

#25 **Xena**

Posted 18 February 2017 - 10:04 PM

Juniper (or June/Juno) would be my suggestion because I love it and won't get to use it now Posted Image

From your list my favourite is Quinn but I like all of them except Chile Posted Image
