No- I am not pregnant again yet, but having Annabella in our lives has been such a wonderful journey that Dh and I are looking forward to giving her a little brother or sister. Names on our shortlist are:
Amelie (too similar to Annabella?)
Jasmine (this was our other name for Annabella, is it wrong to give it to our next child?)
WDYT? What goes best with Annabella?

Scarlett - Don't love it. I know it's popular but always makes me think of a "scarlette lady"
Charlotte - lovely.
Amelie (too similar to Annabella?) - probably a little similar for my tastes.
Jasmine (this was our other name for Annabella, is it wrong to give it to our next child?) - Nah - if you still like it I'd go with it.
Monique - lovely. My favourite from your list and goes well with Annabelle.
Elysse - I love the name but spelled Elise.
Nadia - NMS. Very 80s gymnastics
Danica - NMS
Gabrielle/a - I'd also say this was a bit too similar to Annabella.
William - My favourite! Simple and classic.
Kai - Loathe!
Devon - Isn't this a type of sandwich meat
Lucas - Ok but makes me think mucas. I like Luke better.
Matthew - ok
Leon - NMS

I don't mind most of your names. I really like Scarlett for a girl.
I don't think it's wrong to use your second choice of name for DD1 for DD2.
I HATE Devon! I have never heard of that for a child. To me, it's a fatty meat that tastes good with tomato sauce
Sorry, just my opinion.

Charlotte - goes well
Amelie (too similar to Annabella?)love it
Jasmine (this was our other name for Annabella, is it wrong to give it to our next child?)nope - pretty
Monique - nice
Elysse - nice
Nadia - nice
Gabrielle/a - nice
William or Liam

Amelie- ok, but probably too close to Annabella. I'm not a fan of siblings having first names which begin with the same letter
Jasmine- ok, as a middle name only. I dislike it as a first name.
Elysse- lovely, if spelt as Elise
Danica- nice, prefer Danika for spelling
Gabrielle/a- lovely, I prefer definitely Gabriella over Gabrielle but think both have endings too similar to Annabella
From your list my favourites are:
Annabella and Scarlett
Annabella and Charlotte
Annabella and Lucas
Annabella and Matthew

Scarlett - pretty, this was on our list
Charlotte - sweet but very popular
Amelie (too similar to Annabella?)- I don't think it's too close, it's a lovely name
Jasmine (this was our other name for Annabella, is it wrong to give it to our next child?) - I am so over this, it's too Disney and too popular
Monique - nice, and unusual
Elysse - prefer Elise but it's a bit boring
Nadia - agree with PP too 80's gymnastics
Danica - NMS
Gabrielle/a - a little close to Annabella, though maybe not if you used Gabrielle.
William - nice, classic, though popular. Goes well with Annabella
Devon - makes a nice sandwich
Lucas - don't mind this
Matthew - nice, classic, goes well with Annabella
Leon - knew a real bogan called this so it ruined the name for me, though there is nothing wrong with the name itself.

We have an 18 month old daughter named Jasmin Elise so I would have to put in votes for those two names.

Amelie (too similar to Annabella?) . Not if it was the only name you could both agree too, but since there are others then I'd use one of them over this name.
Elysse, spelling looks just wrong to me.

Aww, congratulations on the arrival of Annabella.
Scarlett - this just isn't my style.
Charlotte - becoming VERY popular, but nice name if that doesn't worry you.
Amelie (too similar to Annabella?) - NMS
Jasmine (this was our other name for Annabella, is it wrong to give it to our next child?) - lovely, and absolutely nothing wrong with using it next time around!
Monique - NMS
Elysse - NMS
Nadia - don't like
Danica - nice, but I prefer Dannika as spelling
Gabrielle/a - Gabrielle is lovely. It's my cousin's DD's name.
William - I prefer Will, but William is good as a full name to Will if you want something longer.
Kai - Love this! Considering adding it to my list for #3
Devon - I don't like at all. I went to school with a Devin though. Different spelling than the luncheon meat!!
Lucas - really like. One of my best friend's has a 10 month old Lucas. It's a great name.
Matthew - like, with Matt or Matty as a nn.
Leon - NMS

Charlotte & Lucas, but you could change your mind a hundred times over yet.
