Answering before reading further:

Beatrice
Celestine
Ursula
Hespera
Sybil
Louisa

Theodore
Kier
Isaac
some other less common Old Testament ones that don't spring to mind right now, like Ezekiel or Shadrach but probably not those.

Also, I do think you've got some really good ones on your lists already.

Zelda jumps out at me today, really distinctive, strong but pretty, unusual but difficult to mispronounce or mis-spell. I can only think of Zelda Fitzgerald whose life story was very tempestuous and sad but her book 'Save Me the Waltz', which she wrote in six weeks, while FS spent years toiling over 'Tender is the Night', is fantastic, almost as good, just far less even and polished. So I think of her as rather amazing.

I like Joss too but do think it has to be Jocelyn.
Also like Ludovic and Corin, also Malachi.
Levi makes me think there's a seam of interesting Jewish names you might like.

Boys: Egidio, Guido, Celeste

Like this thread for unusual name ideas. I looked up the huge list of Shakespearean names. There's a treasure trove of great names there.

I'm considering Conrad should baby number 2 be a boy.
