Cordelia - Ok. Very vintage.
Eleanor - NMS. Sounds very old-ladyish to me.
Olive - Dislike immensely. Olives go in martinis.
Juliet - Eh. Not a fan of the association with the over-dramatic suicidal Shakespearean teenager.
Philippa - Love this name, and Pippa is such a great nickname. One of the few nn's that can translate well into adulthood.
Verity - Ok. Vintage without being stuffy.
Violet - Ugh. No. So over this name. I hear it everywhere! It's like walking around in a perpetual flower garden sometimes - Lily! Rose! Daisy! Violet!Girls - Abigail, Georgianna, Anne, Charlotte, Claire, Genevieve, Annette, Eliza, Felicity, Hannah, Noelle, Eugenie, Grace, Phoebe, Philippa, Cecilia, Cecily, Elizabeth, Hollis, Piper, Lorelei, Vivienne, Paige, Carolina, Isobel, Lucy, Molly, Georgia, Victoria, Naomi

Cordelia - I love Cordelia! It is becoming a new favorite of mine!
Eleanor - I like Eleanor a lot, it sounds very sweet and sophisticated
Olive - I love Olive but I will never understand why it does not get as much love as Olivia
Juliet - I think it fits fine but you have better names here
Philippa - I love it but I struggle with exactly how usable it is and how trendy it will become...
Verity - Aww what a sweet story, is she the oldest? That could be a very special connection between the two of them
Violet - I like this better than Juliet but I think Violet makes a better MN

Cordelia - I love it! I love it's very literary feel (even though the literary character isn't the best namesake), and the nns Cora and Delia are adorable. I think it goes with your children's names well, but not quite as well as some of them (like Violet and Olive, for example!).
Eleanor - I love it a lot, too! It's on my own personal top 10. The only worry I have with it is that she would share a letter with Emmeline, but if that doesn't bother you, then I think it's great. I just wouldn't do Emme and Ellie for nicknames... I think Lena, Leni, and Norah are great, though.
Olive - I agree, it fits really well! I adore it, too, it's so sweet and natural.
Juliet - I think it fits well, but not as well as Violet does.
Philippa - Yeah, I don't really see it fitting in with the rest of your family's names very well, but Pippa is adorable and I think it does fit in pretty well!
Verity - I love that Emmeline suggested this one! I think it'd be a cute tie to her. I do think Violet fits in better with your children, but I do really love Verity--maybe you could use it as a MN? Like Eleanor Verity or Olive Verity?
Violet - imo, this is an ideal fit with your other children! It fits so perfectly with Emmeline, Arabella, Josephine, Charlotte, and even Cecily. The only one I'm not sure if it fits with is Franklin.
Violet, Olive, and Eleanor are still my three top picks! I still can't decide between Olive and Eleanor for the second twin, haha, but I don't think you could lose with any of those three names!
