If we love Hugo and Rafael, what girl names would we love?!

We are trying to choose a name for our daughter and finding it difficult, although for a boy we have two names we really love. We would go for Hugo for a boy, with Rafael as a close runner up. Just hoping that someone might be able to suggest some equivalent girls names that we might love. We like Hugo and Rafael because they seem easy to pronounce and we really like them phonetically.
We do have a shortlist but we are a bit confused about it all and any opinions would be very gratefully received.
We are also strongly considering using Willow (probably as a middle name but not ruled out as a first) to honour my Father (William).
Our shortlist is:
Rose
Florence
Rafaela
Allegra
Talitha
Claudia
Romola
Lauren

Thank you so much!

You've got two posh boys' names - you have to stick to that theme. Willow is not posh at all.

I love those boys names! Our girls name would have been Athena.

I think you have a beautiful selection of names. Personally I love Allegra and Florence. One unusual and another super popular.
