I think your original name picks are fine. They're a little matchy, but I don't think it's over the top or enough to keep you from using those names if they're what you love best.

Not my typical taste, but I think I have royal babies on the brain:
I'd have two concerns:
1) Many people would mispronounce it
2) Those who knew how to pronounce it would probably associate it strongly with Sophocles' tragedy
If neither of those matter to...

I think that since Noelle has its emphasis on the second syllable rather than the first syllable like your middle name choices/last name it helps to break up the typical 2-2-2 meter that people don't...

Of your list I like best:
Samuel (my first and maiden last name began with the same letter letter and it was never a problem. I think Sam Shutterowork is totally handsome!
For full disclosure, my own name is Laura.
I think both are feminine, sweet classics.
Clara is definitely more on trend, riding the coattails of uber popular Claire. Expect it to continue to...
Thank you for always keeping us updated! Were it not for you I probably wouldn't ever see any non-British royal birth announcements.
So, three syllables with the emphasis on the first syllable.

This would be incredibly difficult. I like the idea of siblings having distinct sounding names, but many of my favorite girls' names begin or end with the same sound. Here goes!

I like Prosper and Edmund very much. Prosper and Noble seemed a bit matchy, but mixing a virtue named sibling with a non-virtue named sib helps tone down as stuffiness or self-importance. If I read...
Is this for a boy or a girl?
It's probably just me, but Elliott seems to lean more feminine for me (maybe the double t ending it shares with all those feminine -ette names? I know Elliot/Elliott...

I think double middles are often clunky, but I think this set is quite nice. I think the fact that Ava and Lynn are both shorter helps it not seem so overbearing. Go for it!

I don't think they're outrageous, but then again, we're on nameberry. What berries think are perfectly wonderful, normal names are not necessarily what other people think are wonderful, normal...
The "dated" image of Margaret must depend on where you live - where I'm from I know plenty of younger Margarets. Many go by some sort of nickname, esp. Maggie.
I think Margaret's a classic, not...

Is there a style of one-syllable names he likes? Off the top of my head I think of a few different styles - classics/older names like Sean, George,...

I think it's a wonderful choice. I think it's strong and classic; on-trend but not trendy.
This is tough!

more letters from my second middle, if needed: beht
Unfortunately, my husband doesn't like it at all.

We've decided not to tell our choice of name to family or friends until the baby is born. I'd rather not deal with people disliking our choice and forcefully suggesting other options instead, which...

I like some names that don't seem very mythological: Helen(a), Penelope, etc. and think they are completely usable.
I also have a fondness for Andromeda, which I think is much more obviously...
