Rebecca Joy is my favorite. It ages well, has lovely nicknames (Becca, Becky, Reba) and sounds happy and comfortable.
Ava and Isabella are very trendy right now. Having a trendy name is very different from having a popular name. Michael and Elizabeth are popular names, but they are steadily popular, so one doesn't know how old Michael or Elizabeth is simply by looking at his or her name. Names like Arnold and Bertha, Roger and Linda, Todd and Dawn, or Cody and Brittany were once trendy. All of those names sound dated now; they sound tied to a decade. Ava and Isabella might sound cool now, but they won't be cool in twenty years.
Laura is lovely and classic, but I think Rebecca sounds better with your children's mixture of comfy classics and Biblical favorites.
I also like Leah with your childrens' names, but Leah Isabelle tends to run together. It sounds like one big name, Leeisabelle. Try a middle name that starts with a consanant, like:
Hope I helped!
