Cornelia and Artemis
Cornelia and Sophronia
Cornelia and Olympia
Cornelia and Pomeline
Cornelia and Ottoline
Cornelia and Lavinia
Cornelia and Viola
Cornelia and Minerva
Cornelia and Galatea
Cornelia and CressidaGwen

I haven't put in my opinion but have been tracking the conversation. When I saw three (3!) of my secret names on your updated list, I had to comment.
I removed the "Gwen" names from the list, though I like them, because Nell and Gwen together ring that mental note - Nell Gwynn.
I love the following, both individually and with Cornelia.
Constance - They really are lovely together, Cornelia and Constance.
Cressida - I like this but it has potential of becoming trendy IMO
Lavinia - Perfect with Cornelia! And a beautiful name as well.
Sophronia - THIS is my long time secret name crush! Phronsie was the baby in the 5 Little Peppers, which I read many, many years ago. I LOVE it and am thrilled to see it here. Sophronia and Cornelia are not quite as perfect as Lavinia and Cornelia but its still my #1.
Viola - I have a love/hate relationship with Viola based on being an American who has lived in England and the US. I knew a Viola in London whose name enchanted me. I know a Viola in the US whose name sounds harsh. I am assuming you are in the UK - if so, I vote yes. If you are in the US, no. If you are in some other country, I reserve my vote/

Cornelia and Leontine make me swoon they are PERFECT sisters! I think Ottoline or Ottilie are equally beautiful with Cornelia too... Can't decide which one I prefer they are both stunning. You have a gorgeous, interesting list but those three names are divine with Cornelia and are charmingly eccentric yet still wearable!
