@kkrvf, that would be amazing if we picked the same name! We aren't going to find out sex, either, so it's a waiting game. We also want names with personal meaning, and between us have French, Scottish, Caribbean, South East Asian, Eastern European, Canadian and English heritage - so we have a lot of options. For some reason I keep coming back to Eloise, because I have a French name and want to keep the tradition going.

Antonia Eloise and Antonia Leonie are both absolutely beautiful - what about something just as simple like Antonia Jane? Also loving:
I love Antonia with anything though - it's such a stunning name! Good luck.

I like Antonia. I just finished reading a book where that was a character's name. It's four syllables so I would stick with a shorter middle even if you have a short last name like me. (I would probably avoid middle's with more than two syllables.)
My favorites are:
I like Madeline, but Antonia Madeline seems long especially if you have a long last name.
I don't think Eloise flows well with Antonia. Too many vowels in both names for my taste and my tongue.
I don't like Leonie very much with Antonia. I like both Leonie and Eloise as girl names on their own, and I wouldn't be judgmental if you decided to use them regardless of flow.
If you're thinking flow,
I do think some simpler forms of your middles would work:
Antonia Bee (or Bea pronounced the same way)
I also don't think of Eloise as being particularly French.
Since you like French names:
Antonia Esme (A lot of vowels but this simpler form works better to me.)
Antonia Aimee (or Amy)
And my favorite French names:
Antonia Fleur ( goes with the nature motif)
Antonia Margaux (Being a form of Margaret of course it means Pearl)
I also like Antonia Jade.
Best of luck!
