    Sylvie is definitely a stand alone name. I much prefer Sylvie to Sylvia/Silvia.

    Love Sylvie Jane & Vivian Alice best from your list.

    Sylvie is so lovely. I also prefer this sweet French form to Sylvia. However, it sounds tongue-twistery with Elsa, unfortunately.

    I feel like all the other names work well, and I love all of them too, Vivian being my least favorite, and I do find Alice too close to Elsa. Florence Wren reminds me of Florence Nightingale, though I do like the combo. Olive Helen is unexpected, but I'd find Olive Jane perfection.

    My favorite is Sylvie Jane! Elsa Beatrice and Sylvie Jane are lovely together. Vivian is not my style but I like it for you.

    I agree, Sylvie can definitely stand on its own! I personally prefer Sylvia, I just like that it's more classic and that I can still use Sylvie if I want. But it's not because Sylvie doesn't stand on its own, it's just that I like Sylvia better. I think Elsa and Sylvie would be charming together, I really love Sylvie Jane. I also adore Olive, but I'm not sure I love Elsa and Olive together for some reason. I do love the idea of Elsa, Sylvie, and Olive as sisters, though...
