Unusual but pretty name needed for daughter

Hello, I'm 8 months pregnant with my third baby...A little girl...and am having major issues coming up with a name for her that matches my daughter and son's! Both of their names are a bit unusual and I have a rule not to choose anything in the top 100 names!

I've been through several names and all the ones I like end up vetoed for some reason. Ones that I like but don't think I can have include:

Aurora (step daughter has a disney princess name so don't want to unbalance by having 2 princess names)
India (my kids are mixed heritage but not Asian so too confusing! )
Taya (just not sure enough)
Tia (means aunt in Spanish and we go to Spain a lot)
Savana (love but it's my cousins name and I want her to have something that's just hers)
Saffron (doesn't go with surname which ends in -on)
Aaliyah (not sure if I like the Liyah bit or if too American)
Ocean (I like but husband hates)
Nahla (current fave but worried about 'gnarler' connotations - husband thinks no one would ever think this?)

I'm probably really over thinking it but any new suggestions or thoughts on the above would be welcomed!

Either that or she'll have to be Girl 2!

Thank you!

Thank you, there's some great ones here to consider! Really like Niya/ Nia (but is it too like 'near' as in distance?) Like Naya and Aurelia too.

What do you think of Nahla? Would anyone really think 'gnarler' ha ha?! X
