Narrowed down to Sebastian and Felicity
Hey berries, I think I might have narrowed my list down to two each....I think, haha. Here goes...
*Sebastian Harris - very handsome, not overly popular and not too trendy. I like the name in full but Seb, Sebbie, and Bash are cute too. Does this name sound stuck up? I have an El0ise which I know can also be perceived that way, haha. I'm in America, though my sib set does have an overall British/French feel, which I think is cool. But either way, I honesty...I love this name. Sounds nice with big bro R0bbie too
Gabriel Harris - like it...a bit more popular than Sebastian and not sure I love nn Gabe but I might. I want the full name and nn to have an overall handsome/cool vibe
ETA: Harris Jonah or Jonah Harris or Jonah Henry - hmmm, not 100% into Harris, as the fn, at the moment. Kinda makes me think of hairy and I don't like the nn Harry. Still. It's a really cool name. I do really like Jonah as the first name though.
*Felicity Pearl - gorgeous, underused, happy name with a touch of vintage, yes? Great meaning and cute nn's (Liss and CeCe). Also wondering if this name sounds a bit "much" with sister Eloise. Felicity might be one syllable too long for me but I can overlook that and just flow with it
Tessa Pearl - nn Tess. OK, so my other girls do not have names that "could" sound like a nickname. They are full names, 100%. And i dont care for theresa nn tessa. This is my ONLY hesitation with Tessa. Well
this and the fact that I may find it a little bit less interesting than felicity....maybe. Besides that, I love the "a" ending, the sound, and the nn Tess is vintage lovely.
Thanks in advance!!!!

Sebastian Harris: I love Sebastian, though it does have a slightly pompous vibe (I know, I have Leopold. Who am I to talk?) Sebastian Harris is great, but just slightly too hissy.
Gabriel Harris is perfection. Great mix of a more familiar name and a more quirky/old-fashioned name and the sounds are very distinctive. This is a win.
Felicity Pearl: Pretty, happy, girly. I love the nickname options here too, and the flow is perfect.
Tessa Pearl: meh. It's fine, I just don't get excited about it. It does sound more nicknamey. Like you I love Tess as a sweet/vintage nickname, I just don't love Tessa as the full name to get there.
So, Gabriel and Felicity win the day, but really you can't go wrong here.Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.
