Charlotte is very nice, but it is popular. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're looking for something a bit more uncommon, here are some ideas: (of varying popularity, all fairly uncommon)
Evangeline
Senna (not to be confused with the up and coming Sienna)
Holland
Savannah
Mallory
Galilee ("Lily"?)
Jocelyn
Genesis
Miriam
Maeve
Elodie
Carys
Athena
Estella
Daphne
Flora / Florabel
Odette
Amina
Arabelle "Ara"
Kaia / Caia
Austen
Cordelia
Henrietta "Hattie"
Elsa

Thanks! I do love the name Cordelia... and its meaning, "Daughter of the sea"... ! It's also a moon. So many nickname/abbr options too... I like Cora and Delia. Sounds strong and also very classic feminine.

Cordelia Meese... Cora Meese

I did run this one by my mom and friend and they both shot it down. My mom just shook her head (?) and my friend said it reminded her too much of that Buffy TV show. But I doubt that the new generation with make the connection... What do you think?

What about Nieve or Neve as a middle name?

Thx!

It is a beautiful name! Sounds pretty with your surname.

I would never make that connection.. I'm a teenager and I have no idea what that is, so I doubt people younger than me will know.

Neve is beautiful, but throws off the flow with the surname.
Cordelia Neve Alexandra Meese, Cordelia Neve Esther Meese, Cordelia Neve Juliana Meese, Cordelia Neve Violetta Meese, Cordelia Neve Isabel Meese, Cordelia Neve Eleanora Meese, Cordelia Neve Leighton Meese, Cordelia Neve Shelby Meese.

Cordelia Charlotte Meese?

How about just Delia? I knew one in school. I'm not sure if it was short for Cordelia but we all knew her as Delia. I think Delia Neve Meese is kinda sweet but interesting.

I love the quirkiness of Cordelia it's cute and has great nickname potential. I can see it working well on a little girl or an older woman but for some reason I always picture a teenage girl being embarrassed by it. I don't know why, it's just the image I get. At least if that were to happen, she could go by Cora or another nickname until she comes around to it again.

What do you think of Evia? Ev like Evan (eV-eee-aah)
It is the name of a beautiful Greek island (not that I've been)

It's unique and beautiful and strong (IMO) but still fits in with all the popular -ia girl names (Sophia, Olivia, Amelia, Cecilia)

Evia Claire is a favourite combo of mine
Evia Charlotte Meese

Otherwise, from the above suggested names I think Cordelia Alexandra Meese is gorgeous.
