    I think Penelope Payne-Wardle sounds fine! That gets my vote. I think they are all nice names tho.

    Margaret Lila is really pretty, but I know what you mean that it is maybe a bit bland next to the boys' names. Did you consider Marguerite at all?

    As far as Vivi and Sebby, you would know much better than I, but I'm thinking Sebby might be transitioning into Seb as he gets older? So it might not be a problem for too long.

    Finally, did you consider honoring Lila with Delilah or something longer as a first name?
    Some current considerations:

    Sylvie Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Miranda Sylvie | Margot Elspeth | Hazel Matilda
    Archer Daniel | Emmett Sebastian | Donovan Ezra | Leo Anderson | Lucian Matteo

    I think Vivienne is perfect with your boys' names! I also really love Margaret, but not sure it goes as well.

    Thanks!

    For Delilah, it wouldn't work for us for 2 reasons; the first because of the Biblical reference and the second because if we used it as a first name, my sister plans to name her hypothetical daughter Lila for her first name (I claimed middle, and it took a long time for her to agree to it without getting pissed off at me, lol). I like the name in theory though.

    The literary connection may be what grab's DH's attention He is more literary than I (in terms of classic novels and poetry), but I am an academic, so with each child I wondered if it could be a name they could be a great writer, philosopher, anthropologist, or musician with
