What about Audrey Delphine? The flow seems a bit better and the sounds less similar with the shorter middle and softer ending.
Some more ideas for you:
Audrey Liliane (lily-ann)
I like Anna Maeve or Anna Gwendolyn!
I agree with nameberry on this name "too close to violent".
This is my favorite as well! Good luck!
Margot is one of my favorites! I prefer the -ot ending.
The sound of Margot Pinot does run together. When you say it quickly it is hard to distinguish the first name from the last name. If your...
How disappointing! And what an odd coincidence... Here are some ideas for you please let me know if anything appeals...
I like Maura Eleanor! I like India too but I can see how it might be a hard name to wear. Seraphina is pretty but quite elaborate.
I don't know how they work in Swedish but some alternative...
I like all the names on your list and most of them are on mine! For Abe I prefer Abram as a full name. Louis & Malcolm are probably my top picks to go with Charles.
These are my favorites on your list too!
Margot could have a nickname Gigi or Mari.
Amelia nn Amelie
Sibyl nn Sibbie
Evelia nn Evie
I am in love with Sybilla Eugenie!

Charles is first on our list for a boy. I like all your "maybe" names a lot actually. With all the classics you have already ruled out it seems you need to look a little further afield for new...
And one more comment...Maxine, while very pretty in French has some issues in English...Max is a very common boy's name (and nickname) in the US and also there is a long running newspaper cartoon...
You have an interesting issue here, particularly as you are not limited to French or English names!
Violet is becoming somewhat popular in the US so Violette would certainly be an easy French...

I had a Granny Lila too. Penelope Lila is a wonderful combo. What is your doubt with it? I say stick with your favorite!
To answer your original question, no it isn't silly to use a nickname for a name that is the same length when both come from Margaret. I actually don't consider Margot a nickname but rather a...
I loved reading Beatrix Potter as a child and as a young reader pronounced the name phonetically bee-ah-tricks. Later in life my dad corrected me saying the proper British English (my dad is...

Oh my goodness, I love Ottoline. I have been wishing someone would use it! I prefer Ottoline with either Grey or Maisie as a middle. You could use Lina as a nn or stretching a bit further how about...

For me Ashby will always be a main street in Berkeley, CA. I agree with the previous commenter that it will be confused with Ashley since the sounds are so similar. I like it as a middle name since...

If you are looking for nn Ellie then Eleanor or Eleonora are lovely and classic but not so dusty as Esther. My other favorite on your list is Beatrice.

Elsa is a long time favorite of mine as well. It has been in the top 1000 names in the US for as long as records have been kept. Most recently it was at #551 so certainly not nearly common but not...
Any new ideas from those?
