    Daphne Plum ~ Lovely! Daphne and Vivienne go nicely together, and Plum is a great nn.
    Colette Fox ~ Pretty, but not my personal taste. There are other names that match up much better with Vivienne on your list IMO.
    Ophelia Paige ~ Really nice, I love Ophelia, but I think some other names on your list go better with big sister Viv.
    Margot West ~ Wonderful! Margot and Vivienne would pair beautifully in my opinion.
    Isadora Drew (nn Dot) ~ This is one of my favorites from your list! Isadora and Vivienne would be an amazing sibset! Isadora is personal favorite of mine as well, though I do like Plum better as an nn for Isadora.
    Francesca Plum ~ This is another fave for me! Francesca is beautiful and would pair wonderfully with Vivienne! I love the nn Plum with this one! Great choice!
    Bianca West (nn Bee) ~ Not really my style. How about Beatrice?
    Theodora Glow (nn Dot) ~ I like Theodora, but I'm not sure that Glow works here. What about Theodora Plum?

    Drew is one of my husband's favorite middle names, and West is mine, but ever since someone suggested Plum, I think it pairs well with almost all our names! Agreed about Beatrice, but for some reason my husband doesn't like it

    Thanks so muvh for your feedback!

    Daphne Plum -I love this. Such a gorgeous name.
    Colette Fox -Colette is a a favorite of mine(most of the names on your lists are faovirtes haha) and Fox adds such flair. I think Vivienne and Colette make a lovely vintage sounding French pair. (Colette Plum is adorable too)
    Ophelia Paige -So much love for this name. Ophelia is beautiful. And Ophelia Paige is lovely. (Ophelia West would also be lovely.)
    Margot West -This is a stuffing combo. West is such a cool and unexpected choice.
    Isadora Drew (nn Dot) -Again I love it. So beautiful.
    Francesca Plum -I love Francesca, it's a beautiful name. (I kind of like Francesca Drew because it takes down the frilly/feminine level. It feels unexpected.)
    Bianca West (nn Bee) -I love Bianca. Bianca West is a brilliant pairing.
    Theodora Glow (nn Dot) -I love Theodora but I might prefer Theodora West or Theodora Plum. Glow just doesn't flow for me.

    1. Colette Fox
    2. Ophelia Paige
    3. Margot West
    4. Daphne Plum

    Thank you! Wow that makes me feel great about our choices. I totally agree on the Glow iffy-ness. I loved the idea of mn Glow, but couldn't make it fit quite as well as the others. Good point about Francesca Drew being more of a contrast/ less frilly.

    Thanks again!
