I'm not a fan of reusing names with succeeding children, so I vote for Nicole.
I don't really think Alanna ties into Marilyn at all, and only vaguely into Mary Ann, but if that's how you choose to honor them it's fine.
Breast feeding, formula feeding, baby wearing, stroller pushing, VBAC successful, video game playing, extended rear facing, extended harnessing, mac and cheese feeding, vaccine free, happily married, LDS mother to 3 beautiful children. And now you know everything about me.
I feel like Alanna Elizabeth flows better, personally. I think it's a beautiful name.
I don't think it's very close to your MIL's name at all, I wouldn't make the connection but if you like it that's the important thing.
