Evermore reminds me of the words "ever more," like your daughter will never be satisfied. The long "o" in "more" also makes it sound more masculine than I think is a good idea.
I've been falling in...

Dawn (I know it's not a nn, but neither is Pearl, so I figured I'd put it)

I've bolded the ones I particularly like.
Jemima Ophelia or Jemima Rosemary - Jemima Ophelia definitely has a nicer "ring" to it.
Constance Margo ''Coco'' - Nice; I've always felt virtue names...

I've always thought Yvonne and Archer would make good twins, since both names mean archer, but it's not obvious at all. Thomas and Gemini would also be cute, since they both mean "twin" :)
Nobody's said Olesia yet. I like that one.
Neither - roz-uh-line (rhymes with mine). The word "rose" doesn't really come into play at all. I'm from the US, if that makes any difference.

For some reason, contrary to everyone else, I think Isadora Rosemary has the better flow. That's probably just because of the stress I put on the syllables. Isadora kind of goes "up" at the end,...

Yes, with the Downton Abbey character, Edith is on everybody's radar. Actually, just today I heard a ten-or-so year old girl yell up to her friend on the ski slopes: "Edith! Edith are you okay?" ...
Ooh, Alexei! I knew about that one, but I forgot about it. Like a much more sophisticated Alexander.
Also, on Natalya: I've looked up the name Talia, since I like the sound of that, and I was...
Thanks for the replies! A lot of great-sounding names here; I especially like Zinaida, Polina, and Daniil.
I find myself liking Russian names recently (probably because I read Anna Karenina...that book is amazing and so are their names! :)) So I was wondering what Russian names you...
Since I think it comes from the original spelling of Yseult, I try to say it as close to that as possible, which on your list is ee-sold. Other ways I might think to pronounce it are iss-old and...

For me (living in the Northern US)
Corrina: cor-ree-nuh (very, very subtle difference between this and Corina. Basically the same for me.)
You could always used Franklin for Frank.
Mallory Kate flows the best, I think. Sophie Claire has too much softness (Sophia Claire or Sophie Clara might work better for me). Violet Isabelle is perfectly fine, but I think Mallory Kate is...
*sorry if any of these are repeats, if they are, I second them!*
For one syllables, how about Sybil May/Mae? Of course, it depends on the surname, but I rather like it.

You seem to be a sort of uniquely historical/traditional namer. You seem to like names that are established as names, and have been for quite some time. However, these are not just the bland Peter...
(@dramagirl19, I think I am the one who told you Josie was too cutesy for a world-class lawyer...*awk shame face*...So I'm sorry I made you angry, and hopefully this explains it.)
I confess I have...
Let's see...middle-aged men I know...
...are the best I can think of.
Say: Hi there, Josie!
Think: Her full name better be Josephine, or something else anyway. Too cutesy for a future world-class lawyer. And I've never been a fan of Danielle.
Meet my little girl,...

How about Mae Georgiana? Or Mae Georgina?
Mae Seraphina/Seraphine might fit your tastes with Sophia, and as for Arabel, maybe Mae Isabel?
For options already said, I second Mae Rosalind, Mae...
Piper (which I hate, but hey, it works)
I know it's a stretch, but maybe Margaret (from Margaret to Peggy to Pippa)
Peridot (It's a birthstone)

I've always said Rowena like Owen that happens to have an R and an A attached. But then again, I'm a name fanatic, and I know its origins in Rowan. I'd say the double n would make things easier,...

Elise Riven doesn't sound too bad if you're still loving Riven.
Lydia Elise flows absolutely wonderfully! :)
