Rebecca June. Rebecca is less popular than Isabelle/a and Alice nowadays.

I love Rebecca, Isabelle and Isabella. Alice is nice but I much prefer the others. Would probably go for Rebecca as there will be so many more of the other two (and as someone who was named Rebecca in the 80s I never thought I'd be able to refer to it as uncommon! grin )

You've probably considered all these but, on similar lines, I would think:
Abigail, Annabelle, Amy, Alexandra, Alicia, Bryony, Charlotte, Claire, Cassandra, Emily, Elizabeth, Francesca, Felicity, Grace, Gabriella, Hannah, Harriet, Imogen, Isadora, Jessica, Joanna, Juliet, Katherine, Lucy, Lydia, Madeleine, Matilda, Miranda, Melissa, Nicola, Natasha, Natalie, Olivia, Philippa, Phoebe, Rachel, Rhiannon, Rosemary, Saskia, Sophia, Samantha, Susannah, Thalia, Tamsin, Victoria, Vanessa, Verity, Zara

Isabella is beautiful.

Rebecca and Alice are both lovely and not overused. I also like June very much.

Isabella/Isabel/Izzy are very very overused and a little dull imo.

I like all 3. Alice is my favourite. Isobel is nice but there are so many of all the variants. Rebecca is lovely but I don't like the inevitable nicknames, Becky, Bex etc.

Rebecca. I would have used it but it's my sister's name so too weird. We have an Alice and it's just perfect. Shehas a more 'out there' middle name.

We have a Rebekah and she is never called anything other than Rebekah; we always expected nicknames/shortened names but she never gets any!
