    I like Bronwen - it's strong but still feminine. First off the bat, I would eliminate another name ending in "n" (Imogen, Lachlan, Eamon, Riordan and Declan). I would also exclude any frilly and feminine names (Allegra, Freya, Petra and Cressida), any shared initial name (Beatrix, Bram) or any names that would cause pronunciation problems (Nimue is pretty but not many people in the general population would know how to pronounce it). Sorry but I've practically annihilated your list!

    My Faves

    Arthur and Celeste
    Arlo and Juniper
    Archer and Eleri (Welsh spelling)

    I like Miles and Gareth with Bronwen as well. Have you considered Milo?

    You have two fantastic lists. My favorite choices to go with Bronwen are Petra, Juniper and Cressida. For boys I like Arthur, Arlo, Ivar (love this!), and Archer The other names end in an en sound which could be repetitive with the sound in Bronwen. Since Juniper is my first choice names ending in r don't really work but I think Conall goes really well.

    Bronwen, Juniper and Conall
    Bronwen, Cressida and Arthur
    Bronwen, Petra and Ivar
