Even though I've now accepted my name as mine and I like it, I did go through a phase of really disliking it (well not the name itself, but it's popularity!).
When I wanted to change my name, I...
In age order:
Sophie Gr@ce M@rg@ret - me
Becca and James are my half-siblings and they were adopted as babies; their middle names are their original birth names.
I like it. Elias has always struck me as a very handsome, sophisticated name. I personally think it flows slightly better as William Elias (I've always found Elias to be hard to pair up, it always...

I think Ryder, Cooper and Oliver go best with middle name John. I'm personally not a fan of Ryder, too trendy and sounds like "ride her" if you say it fast! Cooper is cute, but not really my style....
Can't really do it with my paternal side - I do not know my great-grandmother's name and my grandfather's name was Arthur - no feminisation!
But, if I do my maternal side, I get Johanna Ida...
I think William Jonathan Alexander is too long and cumbersome, sorry! William Alexander John works much better!
Milo Charles or Beck Charlie would be really cute, not a fan of Amos, sorry!
All the C and D names on my list for inspiration:
Claire Anneliese definitely! Charlotte is too popular for me, and Ann is so boring and predictable in the middle spot. Claire is refreshing as a first name and I love Anneliese so much!
I love Harriet (though it's very popular here) and Henrietta. However, for Hattie I would probably use Harriet; Hettie is more suitable for Henrietta x
Do you like Roman? I think Oliver Roman sounds awesome!
Margo Josephine is perfect! (though I personally prefer the Margot spelling) I also like pp's suggestions of Margo Beatrice, Margo Vivienne and Margo Frances. Margo(t) is a gorgeous name and works...
Much prefer Anneliese - so pretty, like a princess, and I love the nn Liesl! Elena's alright too, but it doesn't have the "wow" factor Anneliese has! x

I'm from the UK, and I grew up with Barney the dinosaur! I love Barnaby (not as fond of Barnabas - sounds too pirate-like!); however, I could never use Barney as a nn because of the dinosaur...

I definitely struggle with girls names more than boys names. I guess it's because (if I even have kids), I've always imagined them to be boys, so I guess it feels more real? Also, my taste in boys...
I have a cousin called Rachel :) she's in her mid-twenties, when the name was very popular. She has an older sister named Hannah - I see both these names as timeless - like Sarah, Chloe, Sophie...
I think, from your list, Beckett works best with the others, especially Dashiell. Other suggestions:
I adore Margot! Maggie is cute, and works well as a nn for Margot, but I prefer it on its own - so elegant and beautiful. Agathe is nice too, but it doesn't have the same feel as Margot to me, and...
