I would probably go with Matilda, for the same reasons the other posters have mentionedDelicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

Really like Phoebe, but agree with some previous posters that Phoebe Bennett is a bit awkward to say with the -be/Be sounds.
Once again, Penelope is pretty but like someone already mentioned, Pen- and Ben- sound really similar.
So for that reason I would pick Matilda Penelope Bennett. However, I think Matilda Phoebe Bennett is a bit softer and flows better, so if you're open to switching around middles, that would be my pick!

Phoebe Matilda Bennett- 10/10 | I think this sounds fantastic! Phoebe Bennett sounds great, and Matilda compliments Phoebe well.
Penelope Matilda Bennett- 2/10 | Penelope and Matilda don't have the same feel at all. Matilda is quiet and vintage, whereas Penelope is more majestic and mythical. They don't go well together. The pen/ben similarity bothers me as well.
Matilda Penelope- 4/10 | This has the same feel as Penelope Matilda, the only things setting it apart are a) The pen/ben connection won't be as noticeable because Penelope is in the middle spot and b) It flows better but the mismatch of names still sets me off.

I am not bothered too much about Penelope Bennett having a similar sound at the beginning, I guess if it were Jenna Bennett or McKenna Bennett it would bug me more because they sound sorta sing songy. I do get what you mean about Phoebe Bennett to some degree be with the long ee's in phoebe and the short e in Bennett I think it works okay. We thought about Matilda Phoebe Bennett but something feels off about it for me
