I adore Katharine, and then for the C's my favourite is Catherine. A Catherine I'd call Cat. A Katharine I'd call Kate or Kitty.
Katharine Josephine would be my pick. It feels the most unexpected....
I really love Theodora and would happily use it.
I like Dorothea and have considered it.
I don't like Dorothy much.
Theodora - spoiled for NNs. Husband likes Dora, I like Teddi or Teddie, we...
For me I like:
Only listing ones I like. There are many others as well.
I like Illyria. I needed an I name for family reasons and Illyria was on my list for a long time.
It has a romantic quality. I consider the Shakespeare connection a plus not a minus. I prefer...
I vastly prefer Eleanor/Elinor and would never consider Anora. I'd consider Honora and that's it.
I don't mind Leonora or Lenora though.
Both Lola and Chloe seem quite on-trend compared to your boys' names.
If he loves Chloe I would consider rarer Greek names in the same end-in-ee style:

I've always loved wild indigo flower, and I would have thought it roughly as explicit as Acacia, and both less well-known as plant names (to non-garden geeks, i am soooo a garden geek) than Magnolia....

Alaric Matthew (Ali) - Could see this working. My sister has Alaric on her list but is going for simple Al as a nn.
Henry Marcel - I like Hawk?
James Balthazar - I like Balthazar (and its...
I like the nicknames and the flexibility. It reminds me of Alexandra or Josephine, minus some popularity. It's not that heavy - I don't mind length though. It's no longer than Isabella.
It's a bit...

Like Shonna/Shah-na would be my guess, or possibly like Sheena?
Sian being like Shahn, Siofra being shee-fra. Siobhan is shuh-vawn.
I am not Irish though I just have an Irish-descent husband...
I adore Katia/Katya
I also like:
Ileana (more Romanian though I think)
Katerina, Ekaterina, Yekaterina
I wish I could buy Harold or Harald but I don't think I can deal with it. Harvey was a retro stretch itself.
Hugh feels too soft without another sound to 'finish it off'? Or I'm crazy.
Walter - dislike
Donovan - love
Christian - fine for someone Christian, I slightly prefer Christopher. Wouldn't use either personally myself.
Alistair - Like. Bump up to love if spelled Alastair...
I like plant names for boys and with Sage I like the double-meaning of the plant and the wise person.
But I like Sage as a middle name for a two-syllable FN if purely going off the sound with...
I love Ezra more but I can see where Ezekiel is nice. This worked out for the best because my sister has dibsed Ezekiel.
To me, Ezra feels a bit more relaxed and has a more mellow sound. It has no...
Oh, you know, I think I loosely knew the Hollister stores existed but I've never been in there and I certainly wasn't naming FOR them. I'm more of a vintage/thrift store person, lol.
I prefer Esther. I like the range of nicknames, (Esti, Estee, Tess) and I like the meaning more.
But my sister will be using Ruth and it is a lovely name.
I can see the "not another E" argument...
Poll: Which of these
Huon - a nature name with a sound that fits with Aidan, Owen, Rowan, Dylan. Short and smooth, not too forced feeling I don't think...? Huon is a known tree name out here in Oz, but I don't think it's...

Girls: Hannah, Claire, Sabrina, Tamika, Ramona, Josephine, Kayla, Molly, Katherine, Megan, and Lillian.
I don't find any of these awful, but I would no longer use Tamika, Josephine, or...
Marie-Thérèse, Marie-Josée, Marie-Soleil
And the 'classic smushes' - these might also be the best for dealing with a...
Hazel is a name I've always loved but cannot use. Combos I've played with:
Short but characterful:

Hedy has a Germanic feel and is reasonably reasonable and not too stretched. Also I like Hedy Lamarr, classic brilliant beauty. Also, not at all Southern feeling.
Hedy Lamarr was born a Hedwig(!)...

Rosemary is my most favourite. I don't think of roses with it though, I think of the blue-flowering herb. It feels strong to me.
Rosalie I really dislike. Feels cutesy-poo.
Rose is in-between....
