Girl name help needed!

Here's my issue. When I was at school (in the 80s/90s) I always loved names like Ava and Emilia, I didn't know anyone with these names as everyone was Amy, hannah, Louise, Anna, Gemma, Claire etc. I loved that they seemed different without sounding try hard or made up.
By the time I came to have my first daughter I learned this was no longer the case and they were now as commonly used as my own name was when I was at school, I ended up going for Rosa Iris Julia (2 middle names as family names) instead.
I am now really stuck for my next little girl.

These are the names I keep going back to

Ivy
Emmeline
Matilda
Tabitha
Edie
Beatrice
Martha
Esme

I do love the sound of Ava, Emilia, Mia etc but just know too many of them now so really looking for something traditional but not so popular. I know some of the above list are very popular in other areas but I don't know any around here. Can anyone give me honest opinions on my list and feel free to suggest other names I may like!

I love Emmeline.
If you like Edie, what about Eden or Erin? Or Eriana/ariana?
Evelyn is lovely and goes well with Rosa.
My grandma was an Ada, her sister was an Eva.

No comments on your names, except to say that IF it matters, some are fairly popular (in top 100 in 2013). Emmeline (no 445), Tabitha (no 191) and Edie (no 212) are the least popular.

If you'd like to check, the full statistics are here (Table 6):

Thank you, as I said I know some are pretty popular but I don't know any which is more of the issue to me. My friends have a few Ella's, Mia's, Ava's, Emilia's etc. lovely names but I now associate them with Rosa's friends.

I think Martha, Beatrice and Ivy are lovely and go well with Rosa.
