Our last name is a fairly common one- Bennett. We're expecting a little girl and have a list of names but can't agree what one to go with...he likes my favorite but isn't in love with it and I like his favorite but am not in love with it...and then there are names we both like but don't necessarily love....here's our list:

Aaliyah
Abigail
Angeline
Athena
Cassandra
Catherine
Coralie
Demetria
Eleanor (my favorite)
Elizabeth
Evangeline
Gabrielle
Genevieve
Isobel
Katrina
Lillian
Madeline
Madison
Morrigan (hubby's favorite)
Natalya
Persephone
Sophia
Serenity
Victoria
Willow

My favourites are the following:

Abigail
Angeline
Cassandra
Catherine
Eleanor
Elizabeth
Gabrielle
Genevieve
Isobel
Katrina
Madeline
Sophia

I adore the sound of Cassandra Bennett, Eleanor Bennett, Madeline Bennett and Sophia Bennett. I think they go very nicely.
I would personally avoid names from "Little Women" with your last name {Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Katherine and Lydia Bennet} because the characters are all that pop in to my head when I hear the names with the surname. Though they all sound wonderful!
From your list, I think Eleanor is definitely my favourite paired with your surname. The rest are lovely, but Eleanor is just so classy and elegant.


Here's a few more ideas, considering the names you have on your list.
I'm not sure if you've considered any of these, so I'm sorry if I just repeat a bunch of names you've already looked at!:
Eloise
Juliet
Claudia
Vivian
Teresa
Harriet
Francesca
Isolde
June
Sarah
Alexandra
Phoebe
Colette
Naomi
Helena
Molly
Penelope
Emilia
Imogen
Hazel
Julianne
Camille
Anna
Florence
Gemma
Ruth
Adelaide
Daphne
Lucille
Victoire
Gwyneth
Audrey
Rosalind
Charlotte
Bridget
Flora
Antonia
Lillia
Margot
Delilah
Angelina
Sienna
Georgiana
Nell
Bryony
Ophelia
Vera
Alaina
Sylvie
Caroline
Niamh
Tabitha
Marguerite
Gwendolen
Alice
Lorelei
Tallulah
Bronte
Aurora
Bianca
Dahlia
Celeste
Adele
Veronica
Scarlett
Lillith
Jacqueline
Noelle
Roxanne
Carlotta
Angelica
Norah
Giselle
Caterine
Josephine
Deirdre
Nicoline
Isadora
Anneliese

I think we are going to go with Eleanor, my mother in law and sister in laws heard the names last night and they all love Eleanor. Husband was surprised because he expected his younger sisters to suggest some trendier names but they want to call her Lea and mother in law was refering to her as Ella by the end of the night. On my side, my mother abstains from the naming process by just going 'that's a nice name, dear' to almost every possible name out there, one of my sisters hates pretty much all the names we come up with because she loves names like Adrian and Addison and the other members of my family like Johanna (hubby said no to my dad on that but my dad must really love that name he tried to convince my mom to use it on every one of us, and my sister to use it on her two girls), Athena or are really little and like names like Minnie, Daisy, and Tinkerbell.
Not sure what we're going to do about middle names though.
