timeless girls name

I don't know if I'm having a boy or girl yet. Boys name will be Alex. I have 2 girls called lily and Eve and cannot find the 'right' girls name. It's driving me crazy!

Names I've considered

Emilia
Amelia
Amelie
Eleanor (sisters name)
Ella
Robyn

Thing is none of them feel right! The Emilia names feel too 'pretty' but not special enough and Eleanor has the nn Ellie which is confusing with Lily. My other favourite name is Hazel but it's Eves middle name and I don't want to reuse it!

I really want a timeless, classic, beautiful name (possibly short without many nn potentials) that doesn't have a masculine short version (so not Alexandra for example). It needs to go with my other names without being too similar. Grace seems ideal but I'm not keen! Ideas?

Never very fashionable, but quite classic and easily recognised.

I actually really like Eleanor and think it goes beautifully with your other two names. She doesn't have to be Ellie - I know 3 Eleanors, one is Ellie and the other two are strictly Eleanor.

Thanks everyone some lovely suggestions! Like Anna but it was my mothers name (should be a nice thing but she changed it to Hannah due to difficult childhood)!

I like Eleanor too and was considering using Ella as a nn. Not keen on Norah or Nellie

Thinking the a ending seem best rather than another ie sound or e ending

Zoe. Timeless, short, no obvious nicknames, lovely for a wee girl or a grown up.
