Admittedly, I cannot untie Galina the name from Gallina, meaning "chicken". I think Greta is great though. I could imagine Greta on any age. It is familiar but not heard very often. I also think it...
Leonie is great. I say it Lay-oh-nee. Generally marked by an accent over that first e -- which may or may not go unnoticed depending on where you are. I think this is because the first time I ever...
Eva Celeste is lovely and that one jumps out to me the most. I also think Lily Amabel is quite nice!

Highlights according to me:
*I think these sounds best with Daisy as a middle, and actually are my top of...

Annabel -- It's just okay to me. Not my favorite and feel like that the parts are greater than the whole in this case.
Ariella -- Great meaning. I think it's pretty really. Ari is a cute nn too....

I love, love Clementine. It's currently my number two name. I don't think it's too far out there at all. It's unique and fun, but also familiar. I think there are a ton of nicknames that would work...
Thanks everyone! I go back and forth, sometimes hourly. Adams Wagner is a double barreled last name. And Venezia is still a place name -- Venice in Italian. :)
Anyway, overwhelming favor towards...

Top 12, no particular order:
Junia / Juno
Poll: Venice vs. Venezia
Keeping it short and focused here: Both Venice and Venezia have been used as family names and mark a very important honoring. Also I don't mind that Luella and Venezia end in the same sound. Just...
This is on my long list. I love Minty or Minna ...which would probably turn into Minnow. :)
Primrose. Great nickname possibilities too: Pri, Prim, Rose, Rosie. My secret love is Sweetbrier (as in the wild rose).
Luella Venice -- Top first name with very important honor middle name. :)
I love Lou names, I've found and my top contender is Luella.
I think of the ones you've listed Luciella has the most potential. To me they sound more like double barreled first names and I think...
Tried to keep strictly to 3 per question!
1. Luella, Evangeline, Clementine
2. Luella Venice, Evangeline Pearl, Clementine Adair
3. Luella, Clementine & Evangeline, Calla & Rosalie, Io & Luna,...
Athena Claire is lovely. Athena is on my own list. Strength and beauty, can't be beat! I think you have good mn choices, balancing the accessible yet bold Athena with something simple and classic.
I love the name Calla. It is on my short list. Also from your list:
Lila -- lie-luh prn.
Other thoughts (hopefully not too many repeats):
I think Aurora / Rory sounds very nice with Brianna / Bria. Rosette would come in second.
Rosalie is my favorite and my favorite with Aubrielle. I do agree that Elise is a bit singsongy with Rosalie, but it's lovely nonetheless.
Thanks everyone! I do love the name, and while it wouldn't keep from using the name because I do adore it and find it quite vintage, sweet & spunky, once that connection was made it nagged.
I had a crazy landlord named Rena (ree-nuh), so that's what comes to mind with that. Rena Arwen doesn't have the best flow for me. I think it is the heavy "R" presence and R is already a very strong...
So having been around kids with all kinds of names (normal and not), I've come to realize that any name is teasable. It doesn't matter if it's obvious or not or even makes sense. If one kid wants to...
I agree with the others. I don't hear Hail Mary at all, though the flow is off. Honestly, kids will find something to tease another about if they want to -- whether it is obvious or not. (for...
Evangeline, Genevieve and Theodosia from your list would make a great match for Cordelia. I also like the sound of
Cordelia & Lucienne
Cordelia & Araminta
Cordelia & Jemima
I'm going to say yes. Even if a lot of people don't make the connection, some will and then it might be awkward. That said, many people don't even know other people's middle names so that's something...
Amelia Pearl -- darling. Also love Mila
Ella -- though mega-popular as a full name and nickname.
Charlotte -- cute. Actually really enjoy Charlie as a nn.
Isabel -- A very popular...
