Hmmm. That's tough.
Names I think have a similar feel to Vivian and Evelyn:
I like both names fine, but Alexandra just feels...cleaner somehow. Alexandria has cooler origins, of course, but it feels cluttered, a bit jarring, and chaotic to me. Plus I think of the...
I've only ever heard of it as a nn for Katherine/Catherine/Katerina, but I think anaxandra's suggestions all work. And since it can be a nickname for Christopher, I don't think you have to limit...
I think of the character from Community and the water filters (which are spelled "Brita.") Neither is a particularly bad association, and it definitely doesn't feel like a nickname for Brittany. It...
Yep. I hate mine, too, I'm just not sure how acceptable/practical/possible it would be to change it at this point.
All time favorites: Ailsa and August.

L to the OL. How did I miss this the first time?
Mine and my sister's names:
Definitely Hazel. It has so much more personality than Annalise, which just feels bland to me.
Oooh, I really like all three of those names, and I think each one complements Charles/Charlie in a different way.
Amelia and Charles are both nice, British-sounding names that are formal but have...
Definitely Penelope June. Lucy Pearl is a bit saccharine for my taste, although I like pp's suggestion of Lucia Pearl.
I voted for Maeve Juliet. Maeve Lydia is my second favorite.
I would absolutely not use Maeve Evelyn or Maeve Genevieve--they're both waaaaayyy too V-heavy and sound like a swarm of bees.
I love Nadia! It is a tricky one to pair up, though. I think it sounds good with names that feel very buttoned-up and Western European.

They're both nice, but I prefer Lila Serafina. The names complement each other so well! It stands out much more than Luciana Marie...Lucy, while nice, feels unremarkable, and Marie is a notorious...
Maya Vivienne would be absolutely stunning.
Sorry for possible repeats:
Esmae Alice Fleur/Esmae Fleur Alice
Clara Pearl Mathilde
Verity Orla Mireille
I think it would help if you considered some longer (ie, with more syllables) middles. All of your names (including...
I love the vibe of Eleanor. The sound, not so much. I do like the name overall, though--it happens to be my best friend's name (she's an Eleanor nn Ellie.) I much prefer Ella to Nora; there's just...
I much prefer Isolde to Ida. Ida makes me think of the American south, and farms, and pigs, and drawls. Not my favorite imagery. Isolde, on the other hand, feels like a stormy sea. It has a certain...

Yeah, I think not fitting in geographically is part of what makes us name nerds, tbh. If I liked the same names as everyone around me, I don't think I'd feel the need to discuss names online so...
I much prefer Finnegan Shepherd. Shepherd as a first just feels out of place in the sibset, and doesn't have the fun, cool-guy vibe of Finnegan/Finn.

The only ones that I don't think flow are your Rosemary and Lilith combos (Rosemary because of the G's, Lilith because it's kind of a tongue-twister.) The others, for the most part, actually sound...
I agree with tfzolghadr- while I think Clara Vivian is stunning, it would be clumsy and slurred-sounding with an N- surname. Clara Viviana, maybe?
Of your other combos, I think Clara Violet and...
I love Dahlia as both a fn and mn. It sounds to me like the name of someone who waltzes through life. Everything she tries comes naturally and easily to a Dahlia, and she is impossible to fluster and...

Yikes, this thread made me realize that currently, my entire girls' top 10 is outside the top 1000! And here I thought my taste was getting more conservative.
Because I don't usually rank all the...
Kate Aria and Kate Alexandra are the standouts, IMO. And I sort of agree with pp about Kate Alexandria--that extra I does give it something. Plus, it would sort of combine Alexandra and Aria.
