    My first thought was Maeve too! I think it fits perfectly with your other names - the 'v' of Vale, and the more Irish-y feel of Flynn and Darby. It's gorgeous by itself, but it's a perfect match...

    What about Poppy? I think it's natural enough, and it's a totally different style from Pauline!

    As everyone has basically said, the pronunciation is Mayve.
    Just to say, if you like the idea of "Meeve", you could maybe consider another Irish name, Niamh, pronounced "Neeve".
