    I adore Lenore, but as I have an Annabel (Poe's Annabel Lee), it would be too much for us. Not only is Lenore featured in The Raven, but there is a Poe poem titled Lenore, as well. I would name siblings of Lenore something like Edmund and Sybil.

    Lenore feels very vintage to me since it's, among other things, a short form of classic Eleanor; Ever is indeed a pretty new appellation. I personally wouldn't really pair them together... I think some of these old-fashioned suggestions like Edmund, Sybil, and your signature pick, Matilda, sound better with Lenore than more modern word like Ever or surnames like Waverly. (Seriously, Lenore and Matilda/Mollie are MADE for each other!! Love it!)

    EDIT: Sorry, I would further add:
    Lenore & Mavis/Maeve/May
    Lenore & Ivy
    Lenore & Faye
    Lenore & Opal
    Lenore & Margo(t)
    Lenore & Alice
    Lenore & Lucille/Lucy (a bit sing-songy but super cute)

    I have to agree withe the above suggestions of Lenore & Matilda as siblings...they are definitely a great match.

    I would also suggestion Eloise, Lavinia, Olive, Valencia, Evelyn.
    Eudora - Casilda - Violetta - Odelia - Leocadia - Odette - Isolde - Valentine - Leopoldine - Isadora
    Eulalia - Aurelia - Marigold - Ariadne - Viola - Cosima - Philomena -Enid
    Averil - Caius - Casimir - Edmund - Ignatius - Benedict - Thaddeus - Raphael - Leopold - Clement
    Cassian - Isidore - Wenceslaus - Balthasar - Peregrine - Gilbert - Cornelius - Augustine - Carlisle

    I agree with previous posters, Ever and Lenore aren't a great sibset. I love the suggestion of Lenore and Matilda! Or Lenore and Ireland (which is listed as one of your guilty pleasures).
