I love Callia, I've never seen that before. What a beautiful name!
Eleri is a Welsh name
Elisa (softer than Eliza?)

I like Truett nn True the best of all you listed. (Actually I like Winston best, but it clashes with the surname). To me, Balthazar and Zebulon are trying too hard.

I love Liam and don't associate it with only Irish heritage. I would avoid Jack S. Luke has always been one of my favorite names and if you like it the best, I wouldn't worry about the syllables.
No. They're essentially the same name. It would seem like you couldn't even be bothered to find two names. Also, if you would use Eamon as a nn, why not just use that as a first? Eamon and Edward,...
I love Eloise, I knew one once who went by Loi prn like low-ee (not sure if she ever spelled it though). I think Greta is too much since they're derived from the same name. PP's idea of Greer is a...

I love Philip nn Flip!
Just a note that D'Artagnon is traditionally spelled this way, or Dartagnon. Could be cute, with nn Dart, but kinda stands out next to Conrad and Sebastian.
Given the names I've already used for my girls:
Phoebe Alice and Margot Kathleen
If I didn't already have children:
Gwendolyn Louise and Rosalie Abigail
Evelyn and Clara
Amelia and Olive
Amelia and Evelyn
Alice and Stella
Jemma (tho I prefer Gemma) and Evelyn
Annelise and Violet
I'm not a fan of Sarah-Jane and Eliza seems too similar to...
I agree with others that Guinevere is a little too fanciful and tied to one image for me. As the mother of a Gwendolyn (whose birthday is 4/17 by the way!), I found it really hard to pair for a...

I love Margot and Sadie
I agree with pp - I prefer it the way I thought it was pronounced!

Azula Rosemary was always my favorite and I also like the pairing with Indira Coral.
Another berry had a Phoebe and needed help with a second daughter who ended up being Susannah. I don't...
I really like Crosby as a first name. I first saw it in use (as a first name) on the TV show Parenthood and it grew on me. I have a friend who named her son Crosby. I like it! I don't really see...
Margot is a great name! I can see how naming a second daughter would be difficult.
Beatrice nn Bea really is a good match. You can call her Bea most of the time; maybe your husband would call...

Penelope nn Poppy is adorable! Would just Poppy be an option? I quite like that with Veda. I also really like Ivy Annabelle and Lila Annabelle from your expanded list. For Mara, I would slightly...
My kids would have been Nolan and Griffin except they turned out to be girls! We also liked Cooper, Mason, Logan. For girls, you might like Maia, Lydia, Naomi (I agree with pp Norah is too similar...
I think Cassadaga Jace is too similar to Calypso Jayelle/Caly Jay. Krimene Jacqueline is also pretty similar to Karitza Josefine imo.
I like Angelo Rafael a lot, really handsome. How about a...

Love Freya Charlotte and Imogen Abigail
Benedict, Joshua, Sebastian
Gregory, Elliott, Sebastian
Jeremy, Benjamin, Frederick
Tobias, Benedict, Sebastian
(I would avoid Jonathan because of Nathaniel and the repeated 'nathan')
I would recommend not using Julianne or even Julia but I don't have any problem with a Juliette Moore.

I love Linnea. Linnea Louise is nice if you want to keep up the alliteration!

You have a lot of lovely options here. I wanted to add that, like pp, I find Elena and Noor to sound like two halves of Eleanor. Daisy is probably my favorite on the list but agree it can seem...
I like Marigold nn Margo

From your update, I love Dorothy Plum and Francesca Plum! Lola, Sukie, etc don't seem substantial enough to me but could work as nns. Susannah Plum nn Sukie for example is quite lovely

There was an article (maybe on NB at some point??) about how the gender on the old birth records is not always accurate. So it might not be that a girl was named Walter but that a boy was...
