    I love Margot Elizabeth and Gwyneth Elise. I prefer Sylvie Johanna over Carys Johanna. Something about Zoe Annalise isn't working for me. Maybe it's just the spelling... Zoe Anneliese looks better, imo. I think Johanna Ivy would be fantastic!

    For the boys, I love Declan James and especially Sebastian James!

    For boys: I would use Jameson in the middle instead of the overused James.

    I very much like Nora Cathleen! I know a little girl who goes by Norah Kate, who's middle name I believe is Kathryn.

    Margo/Margot Elizabeth (nn Maggie)- Something about this doesn't work with Nora for me. I know all the berries are trying to bring this one back but Nora is gaining popularity and is so spunky sounding...Margo/Maggie doesn't do the same for me!

    Gwyneth Elise (nn Gwen)- I'm not sure about Gwenyth and Nora as a sibset, but the name you've picked out here is beautiful.

    Sylvie Johanna- This is probably my favorite! Nora and Sylvie are both a little french and jazzy sounding, I really like this combo!

    Zoe Annalise- I don't mind Zoe and if you're okay with the popularity then it's not a bad name, I don't particularly like Zoe Annalise though, what about just Zoe Elise?

    Carys Johanna (nn Cary)- I'm not really a fan of Johanna here, Carys Elizabeth and even Carys Annalise sound a little more pleasing out loud to me. That being said I don't really know if I like Carys with Nora...

    [Also considering as first names: Elise, Johanna, Eve, Maeve, Eliza, Mary, Josephine, Brigid, Ivy, Greta] Out of these I like Eliza and Ivy. Eve, Elise and Mary get middle name votes.

    Boys -

    Declan James (nn Dex or Deke)- Declan sounds so...fancy? compared to Nora to me, maybe a little more pretentious sounding than easy going Nora.

    Gavin James- This is pretty popular, although Nora and Gavin sound just fine to me.

    Ian James- This is my second favorite, Ian and Nora flow nicely.

    Miles Jameson (nn Milo)- I think this may be my favorite...Milo has the same feel as Sylvie and Nora do, fun, jazzy and spunky.

    Sebastian James (nn Bash or Seb)- I want to like this because I love Sebastian, but it feels out of place amongst your other names! Maybe Margo and Sebastian make a decent sibset, but with Nora in there she feels out of place.

    [Also considering as first names: Lyle, Dean, Ewan, Owen, Leland, Bradley, Ronan, Luca, Simon] Of these I like Owen, I prefer Lucas to Luca, Ronan I like as a name but it feels a little trendy next to Nora. And Lyle and Leland for middle names.
