Sibling for sister Bayard "Bay"
I'd love to know which of these names you think I should keep or axe. My husband only likes Marguerite and while I like the name in theory, I don't want to use it (and he doesn't like the nickname I chose for it). Last name sounds like Sawnders.
Boy will almost definitely be Wolf Davis.
Carolina (caroleenuh) Talmadge
Clementine Davis "Clemmy"
Magnolia Talmadge "Aggie"
Marguerite Davis "Clover"
Olympia Talmadge "Oly"
Roseline Talmadge "Rosie"
Nicknames don't have to be used but if they were, these are my preferences. Middles are family names.
Please mention any flow issues as well.
ETA: I didn't mean for it to sound like he hates these names, he just wants Marguerite. I think I can sell him on one of these, that's why I haven't cut them yet.

If your husband doesn't like any of them but Marguerite and you won't use it, you should axe all the names and start over. Bayard is strong surname name and I would use something along those lines for a sister. (BTW, Wolf works very well with it.)

I'm with you on Marguerite. I love all of your other names. Clementine (I like Lemon as a nn), Magnolia, Liesel and Olympia (I live in Washington- totally not usable here!) are on my own list. I think I like Magnolia best with Bayard. Bay and Nolie or Bay and Aggie are pretty cute together.
How do you feel about Gretchen nn Greta or Gretel? I think they come from the same root as Marguerite, but they seem a little more fresh and modern to me. Maybe a nice compromise?Under construction...

Because Bayard is such a strong name and has a unisex or masculine vibe, Marguerite and the other names on your list don't seem to fit because they are all pretty feminine. I agree with the above comments that a last name/unisex name would work better as a sibset.
