a) Eleanora/Eleonora - Eleanora. But Leonora if you leave off the E. And Lenore if you leave off the A.
b) Rosamund/Rosamond - Rosamund. Like Edmund, it seems classier with the U.
c) Isobel/Isabel/Isabelle - Isobel. The -belle spelling is too fussy. I think the O makes it more interesting visually.
d) Emelia/Emilia - Emilia
e) Merewyn/Merewen - Merewen. I dolike the look of the Y in these names, but in Welsh the -wyn spelling makes it masculine.
f) Bronwen/Bronwyn - Bronwen. See above.
g) Millicent/Melisande - Melisande. Millicent sounds like a villain.
h) Annabel/Annabelle - Annabel. The -belle spelling is too frilly.
i) Juliet/Juliette - Juliet
j) Annaliese/Annalise - Annaliese
k) Collette/Colette - ColetteMommy to...Maura Lucille
I had a baby today, I would name him/her...
Patrick Donley or Brigid "Birdie" ??? (Robinette... or Belinda... Girl middles are so difficult, too many honor-worthy ladies in my family!)
BOYS: Seamus Arthur, Niall/Neil/Neal James
GIRLS: Deirdre/Deidra "Dear" ??? (Ellen or Suzanne)
