These are my favorites on your list too!

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.
Similar ideas... ( sorry I don't know if...
Your girls are so well named! And your considerations thus far include many gems. So I will try to add something new....

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?
As you said the repeating -er endings and repeating two-syllable, surnames don't flow well. Also repeating surname names can sound more like a law firm name than an individual's name.
I like Bea as a first name although I think there would be some confusion with the pronunciation with the successive vowels: "bee-ah" or "bay-ah" or just "bee". Bea Mathilde is a stunning combo!
I too find Charlotte quite popular....do you like just Lotte? I also like Eliza as a first name!
From your combos here I prefer Eliza or Frances in the middle as they are less common than the...

Eloise is much more original than Adelyn which has many popular variations (all w nn Addie) currently.
I really like Louisa Sherwood! It really stands out in a good way from the others on your list as original and special. I find Sherwood very pretty for a family name. It reminds me of the Robin Hood...

Ray can be short for Rachel so that could work for a boy, particularly in the middle spot.
Here is the "R" section of an extensive list of Hebrew Boys...

I like Elsbeth Mattea a as a combo however I do think it would be mistaken for Elizabeth a lot. Verity Matte a is lovely as well.

Gabrielle is always pretty! The alliteration here does not bother me.
More ideas for you....
