I love Elizabeth for being sophisticated and down-to-earth at the same time, for the literary and historical connections, and for being the most classic of classic names. Charlotte is beautiful and regal as well, and I love it but not as much as Elizabeth. Wren is cute but doesn't have the same weight or versatility. I agree with suggestions of Elizabeth Wren or Charlotte Wren- and what about Elizabeth Charlotte?~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

I love the name Charlotte!
Elizabeth, I think, is the most commonly used amongst the three, and Charlotte has great characteristic.
Meaning 'Free Man', it's also the name of some of the world's most famous people: Charlotte Bronte, Charlotte Rae, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Charlotte E. Ray. Charlotte Forten... Charlotte Cantilini, whom was portrayed in character by Jennifer Lopez in 'Monster-in-Law'
And my favorite bit of the name Charlotte is the nickname 'Charlie'. I've always wanted a boy-girl name and the closest I got was a nickname as 'Dennis' or 'Denny'; which I why I'd also ship Wren.

I'm a classic girl, I love classic names. So because of this I prefer Elizabeth and Charlotte over Wren. Elizabeth is a really elegant, and regal sounding. I love the whole vibe of Elizabeth she's an regal, sophisticated choice. I also love the range of nicknames associated with Elizabeth such as Eliza, Beth, Lisa, Lizzie, Betsy and Betty. I also love Elle. Yet I do prefer Charlotte over Elizabeth, Charlotte sounds a lot softer, has a prettier vibe and feels really elegant. I also love the nickname Lottie for Charlotte. I'm a major fan of Charlotte she's on my forever changing favourite name list at the moment. So yes I do prefer Charlotte! I think Wren could work as a really spunky middle name. I think Charlotte Wren sounds lovely.
