i think Cadence and Waverly sound great together. (and with the others too)

As to the name, I think Waverly Claire is very pretty and it goes nicely with Cadence, Nathaniel & Alana. However, it is a bit long for everyday use in my book...normally if a name is three or more syllables it has to have a usable nn for it to be wearable. So possible nns...Avie/Avy?

However, I don't really see anything wrong with it, and Waverly Claire flows quite nicely!

While I do think it might be a name that would work better on a book character, it has potential to be just perfect amount of unique but still normal enough to use on a child. The only bad associations I can think of are the TV show obviously, and that Waverly is close to the word "wavering" which because of its meaning makes the word (and thus name) have a weak feel to it.
I see that you've been liking the nickname Avi for it? I presume you're pronouncing it like Ava based on the prn. of Waverly--I will warn you that with the spelling Avi you might get Ah-vie a lot. I think I like it spelled Avy better--have you ever considered just using the name Avy Alice Claire? Or even just Avy Claire? What about Avery? Sorry if you've already addressed these questions in other posts---as much as I think Waverly is a great name, I'm having a little trouble seeing it on a baby, and there's just something, no matter how much I say it, that feels just a little off.
Sorry this post turned into a novel. You have such a great naming style, might I add--as someone who has a unique yet pronounceable name, let me tell you how great it is not to be one of the Emilys/Jessicas/Laurens and have a name to call my own--and I'm sure your children will appreciate that someday too.

I've been trying to avoid A names. With my name and my stepdaughter's name beginning with A, I feel it would be an overload. LOL. However, I have considered Avery on and off. It's one of those names I like but not enough to use the name. Much like Gemma. I am a bit of the opposite with Waverly. I can see it for a baby or a little girl but I can't imagine older than 5. I'll look around at various ages and try to imagine if their name was Waverly. Sometimes I see it and other times I don't. I try and say it out loud. I'll even address Cadence as Waverly to test it out. LOL
And thank you. That is what I wanted to go for with names. I was one of many growing up and I wanted a unique name for my child. Though, if I was having a boy, it's Noah all the way!
