Mae ___(insert middle name)___
We decided on using Mae as a first name for a future daughter and would like to add more names to pair with it as possible middle names. Here are names on our list so far:
Mae Emmeline (pronounced leen, not line or lyn)
Other more daring middle names we have discussed include:
Mae Azalea - Is it too much pairing Mae with a flower name?
Mae Winter - I love it but is it too seasonal/time of the year sounding?
We tend to like literary and whimsical/nature names so any suggestions, especially whimsical/nature names, would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Ooh, I have thought about this a bit since Mae is my #1 girls' name
I love Mae Felicity and Mae Imogen from your list; the only ones I don't think work are Mae Winter (for the reason mentioned) and Mae Waverly (May-Way sound redundant to me). I like a lot of the pp's suggestions, too. I would add:

I like Emmeline and josephine form your first list, the flow seems the best with those two.
as for your second list, I like Azalea and Persephone. Winter is very beautiful but I agree with you-it does sound Very season oriented, like you are putting it there becuase she is a winter baby.
some suggestions for both lists:
Alicia (kind of like Azalea but less shocking)
Levinia (like this one a lot)
