Eva vs. Genevieve [Evie]
For about a week now I thought I had settled on Genevieve nn Evie/Niamh for the last spot on my girls' list. I really loved Eva, but it didn't have all of Genevieve's charm. But today I just met THE most adorable little girl named Eva, she totally rocked her name and I'm completely back in love with Eva all over again! Which would you choose? The other names on my short list are Isabelle, Arianne, Olivia, Violet, Rachel, Liliana, Charlotte, Hannah, and Eleni, although being a "perfect" style match isn't terribly important to me, as Rachel and Eleni are sort of different styles from the others on my list.
Also, I'm trying to come up with combos... So far, I have:
I'll attach a second MN (honoring) later, I'm more concerned about the first MN right now. Any other ideas? Anything literary, French, floral, Biblical, etc. wins brownie points. I like the thought of something a bit whimsical for both Eva and Genevieve, too.

@bellarina - thanks, I'm not too concerned about avoiding Jenny--I used to love Gen as a nn for Genevieve, and still sort of like Ginny, so I wouldn't hate it. Plus, I don't think it'd be too awful to gently correct people if they call her Jenny, "Oh, we call her Evie" or whatever.
@teacherma - Thanks for the suggestion! I used to love Geneva in the past, but I just don't feel it has the charm that either Genevieve or Eva has these days, unfortunately. A lovely name for someone else, though.
I think it's easier for me to love Genevieve because I really love Genevieve Luna and Genevieve Sylvia. I'm finding it harder to love any Eva combo I come up with (or come across). :/

Genevieve and Eva are both so lovely! I love Eva paired with Byrony and Coralie. Here are some suggestions coming to mind...
Your entire girls list is wonderful, by the way! Hope that helps!
