Do you happen to like any specific flower names? You could call a Rose or a Lily or whatever "my little flora (flower)" and maybe the nickname would stick.
Another more convoluted way is to pair...
I'm a huge fan of Elizaveta, Anastasia, Ekaterina, Alexandra, Maia, Zoya, and Vera.

I'm Margaret, and I like it for the most part, but I do have some complaints about it.
1. It was my grandmother's name, but I would have much preferred to be given a name my parents loved over an...

When I was a little girl, I always thought I would name a boy Nicholas Alexander, so that's definitely my favorite on your list! (Unfortunately, DH vetoed Nicholas, so that didn't happen.) I also...
If Ava and Eve are the names in question, I would probably just go with Eva in either the first or middle spot. Eva is a form of Eve, but it can be pronounced to sound almost like Ava (more Eh-va...
What do you think of Benvolio as a middle for Alexander? Benvolio has always been a bit of a secret crush of mine, but I always considered it a guilty pleasure since pretty much the only association...
Aurora, definitely! Ophelia and Penelope are in my personal top ten, and Aurora/Aurelia isn't that much further down the list. (I do slightly prefer Aurelia, but that obviously wouldn't work as a...

I have first hand experience with this, since I do have children named William and Catherine. A few did point out the connection right after Catherine's birth, but I think that was mainly because she...
It's strange, since I tend to prefer "ph" over "f" and Greek names with an "ee" sound at the end to spelled with an "e" instead of a "i", but for some reason, the look of Nefeli appeals to me...

I'm not a huge fan of short names in general, but if they're used, I tend to find short first/long middle combos more striking and elegant.
Combining all the names on your short list with ones on...

Joseph or Josephine (love them both!)
Stephen or Stephanie
Alexander or Alexandra/Alexandria (love them both!)
Martin or Martina
Kenneth or Kendra
Xavier or Xaviera
Nicholas or Nicole
Although Evangeline is my personal favorite of your top names, I agree with a pp that I would rule it out since you already have a Seraphine. I would also strike Elfrida from the list for being a...
It's kinda interesting that you think the names seem so different, when I would be more concerned with some of the names sounding too much alike!
I would avoid pairing these names together:...
Our daughter's name is Catherine Ophelia, which of course I adore. Catherine is my second favorite girls' name ever(and my husband's favorite), and it's cool that her nickname Cate is a family...
If you do change any names, it should be Jubilee's, not Julia's or Hannah's. Julia and Hannah presumably like their names and are used to them by now, so it's totally unfair to change them just...

Oldest: Stephanie - When I was little, I so wished my name was Stephanie instead of Margaret!
Newest: Asterope - I love Penelope and Calliope, so it's no surprise that I also fell for...

Thank you! I think we've agree to take Karol and Emrys off the list. We like them, but neither of us is really wild about either of them. I'm glad to see some support for Krzysztof; I was worried the...

Still searching for a middle for Alexander my husband and I can both happily agree on... I'm starting to hope that our last two children are girls just so we never have to make a final decision!...

Nicholas - I'm still sad that DH vetoed it for what I consider a somewhat silly reason (we already have a nephew named Colin, which is a Nicholas variation/nickname).

I agree that if you plan to raise your children in Japan, it would be best to give them either Japanese names or Western names that would be easy enough for a native Japanese speaker to say. Flynn...
Favorites: Zoe, Veronica, Elizabeth - They're all in my personal top ten, so of course I love them best of your names as well! I also like that they're very classic names and contain two of my...

I'm the same way with "-ine" endings, as long as they're pronounced like "een" and not with a long I sound.
I also love, love, love "v", "ph", "nic", "el" and "-ian" sounds. Favorite vowel sounds...

-Lisa/Liza: I'm kinda confused by this one, since Lisa and Liza are usually pronounced differently and are not the same name (although both are Elizabeth nicknames), so it's not...

My fraternal twin aunts have the most terrible matchy-matchy names: Diana and Deana (pr. Dee-ann-a, not Dee-na, which would at least sound not quite so bad). My poor dad -- their brother -- still...
