I love Elowyn Alexandra Pearl, but I much prefer the traditional spelling Elowen. Elowen Alexandra Pearl--it's a beautiful name that honors a loved one! The previous poster said it is pronounced differently with this spelling, but i don't know much about that-I've only heard Elowen pn ELL-oh-win (which is what you want.) And I agree that the name it sounds VERY similar to Edwin Alexander Paul, and that's the connection you're looking for!
I do also LOVE the name Eowyn, as a previous poster suggested, and Eowyn Alexandra Pearl is lovely as well, but if you pick Eowyn you have to be willing to deal with the Lord of the Rings connection.

Thanks all! I did consider Elowen too but I thought that the pronunciation of Elowyn would honour her father better. I always assumed that the ending of Elowen was pronounced differently, more like the end of Rowan.
I love Elowyn/Elowen Alexandra Pearl but like charlieandperry1 mentioned, I did also think that maybe its a little too close and that she needs some individuality. (I am naming it Edwin if it's a boy but with different middle names than my fiance had so it's not exactly the same). I was thinking of using a first name that I love and using the middle names Alexandra and Pearl so it still honours him.
My girls name list which doesn't honour anyone is Violet, Felicity, Elizabeth, Josephine, Lillian & Rosalie and I think all of these will work with the middle names Alexandra Pearl.
Do you all think that would work better? Being a girl myself I wouldn't want a name that sounds identical to my fathers, even if I never met him (if that makes sense)Mum to
