Anne-Claire Felicity is really pretty! She's my favorite from your list, followed by Anne-Claire Juliette. (My normal rule is to pair a long name with the Juliet spelling and a short name with the...
I absolutely love the name Vesper, while I'm not a huge fan of that spelling for Clare, so Athena Vesper is my fave of the two. As for popularity, I'm always a bit surprised that Athena is so...

I'm still wowed by my children's names (William Balthazar and Catherine Ophelia), but of course that's a given when they're attached to two of the people I love most in the world!

I Googled "Russian version of Nicole" and there doesn't appear to be one unfortunately, but the name Nikita stood out to me as possibility. It's technically a male Russian name, yet it's seen more as...

Yes, those are the correct forms of the patronymic, but it seems strange to me to use Konstantinovna, when the patronymic refers to the father. Nikolayevna makes a little more sense, since it...

Ooh, I just got what may be a genius idea: what about Apollonia, nn Opal? It makes as much sense as Daisy for D's nickname, and it even honors the grandmas in almost the exact same way. (You could...

I agree that Constance is much more of a name than a word to me. In fact, while Constance means "constant", I don't think "constance" itself is actually a word. The lower-case version is showing up...

I don't think it would be embarrassing for a girl to have Maximovna for a middle name. Not all girls have middle names like Lee, Lynn, and Elizabeth (or more likely nowadays, Rose, Grace, or...

Most of the names I was going to suggest have already been mentioned, but I think Amabel would be a pretty honor name for an Amanda. Mabel or Annabel (Scottish variation of Amabel, according to NB)...
I'm surprised since I usually don't like Wren at all, but Wren Isabella is stunning! Aria Ivy doesn't have the best flow, and I just don't generally like the look of two short names together.

Honora, Marina, Lucilla, Phaedra, and Silvana/Sylvana are definitely useable, IMO, and Honora and Marina are my favorites with your sibset. Maybe Cyra, too, but I think most people would see it as a...

I'm of the opinion that (almost) anything goes in the middle, and as a Catholic, I think it's a perfectly lovely tradition. In fact, I briefly considered Maria for our Alexander combo, although DH...

Judging just by first names, I prefer Seraphina, which is in my personal top ten, but I also really love Evangeline. When I look at the three name combos, though, I like Evangeline Laetitia Odette...
But Olivia Pearl is actually my favorite overall.
I do think Mabel Frederika is the more interesting combination, but I prefer Louisa over Mabel, and it does seem more fair that you get to honor your side of the family this time. If you do like...

I kinda like the idea of Moon as a middle name (more for a boy, though it could work on a girl), but I agree that it doesn't quite work with Heidi. Like a pp, it reminds me of "honeymoon" as well....
I'm not generally a fan of -us names (although I have been liking them a little more lately), so my pick would be Augustine.
Augustine is not 100% feminine. The most familiar Augustine is the...

I'm surprised by the comments that think Blaise clashes with Clarisse. If anything, I think they're perhaps a little too similar! They share all the same letters except for the B and C/R and both end...

Zoe... Unfortunately, DH has a bad association with one, so he won't agree to it as a first name. If we ever have an Isobel, though, I'm nicknaming her Zoe, no matter how much of a stretch it is.
As a formal name, I like Lily best, since it's a flower name and that's how the name of the flower is spelled. As a nickname for Lillian, though, I would probably go with one of the double "l"...
