We've just found out that our second baby is a girl. DH is Greek so we would like to keep to a Greek theme or the name of a saint so she gets a name day. Middle name most likely Nicole. Names on our list so far are:
Eleni (NN Ellie)
Lucy
Hannah
Emilia
Zoe
Phoebe

Any other suggestions welcomed!

My first thought was Ari & Ella, so Eleni Nicole would be a good fit. Otherwise I like Zoe Nicole.

I love Eleni from you list. I think it would work nicely.

I'm not really one for sibling names have to match though. Both my kids names don't really go together as they end in the same sound, but they suit them.

I reckon you could pick any name you like and it can probably be Greekified.  Even Loulou has a name day (23 June).

Thalia
Yanna
Rania (Ourania)
Alexandra
Olympia
Zoe
Cleo
Theoni
Theodora
Anthea
Marianthi (NN Maya)
Georgia
Helena
Kalliopi
Paula

From your list I think Olivia Nicole works best. I really like Eleni and Zoe too.

Others:
Athena (you may not want to double up on initials though...)
Anastasia (ditto)
Iris
Olympia
Sibylla
Sophia
Sotiria
Stella
Theia
Theodosia
Theophania
Xenia

The more I think about it the more I'd rather not have Nicole as a middle name. Other options would be Louise or Kate.

My Greek friend is Fiona. A mostly under utilised name similar to Phoebe.

Too much tv here. My first thought when I hear the name Ari, is Ziva David on NCIS.
Tali was Zivas sister.

All great names. I prefer Ella to Ellie, Ellie sounds more of a NN. Love Ari and Zoe best

I love Hannah, Lucy and Phoebe from your list. I like Kate from the suggestions, but as a first name.

I hate Ella and all the variations probably more than any other girl name. My niece is Ella and it has never grown on me.

Kate could be the first name.  It's a shortening of Katerina which is very Greek.

I think Louise would be a great MN, especially if it's your name or mn. Zoe Louise and Ari would be great
