Fia Scarlet: Cute! I prefer Fia to Mia, but I fear it won't age well.
Thea Adeline: Has vintage charm, but isn't unwearable. I quite like this combo!
Rorie Maeve / Rorie Mae: I prefer Maeve with Rorie. Seems less filler.
Fallyn Elise: Fallyn isn't my cup of tea.
Isla Brave: Adorable, I love Isla. Brave is an interesting middle.
Leighton Iris: Leighton is all boy to me, don't like it.

Fia Scarlet - not really my style, but it's pretty.
Thea Adeline - cute. I love Adeline.
Rorie Maeve / Rorie Mae - Rory Maeve is beautiful. Rory Mae sounds a bit too hill billy for me.
Fallyn Elise - not a fan of Fallon, but I do like this combo.
Isla Brave - I like Isla. Not too sure about brave though. Isla Maeve maybe?
Leighton Iris (lay-ton) - adorable!Mom to:

Fia Scarlet - Fia isn't really my style, but I love Scarlet in the middle spot.
Thea Adeline - I usually don't like short first names, but Thea is an exception. Love the whole thing.
Rorie Maeve / Rorie Mae - I agree that Rorie Mae is a bit too close to Ellie May for comfort. Rory is only one letter off from my name. I would definitely go with the -ie spelling because apparently, as I have learned from experience, is more easily recognized as feminine than the -y spelling. I like Maeve in the second spot. I think it is the perfect length. From experience, it is good to have a feminine middle with unisex names so you can easily show gender over email etc.
Fallyn Elise - Fallyn is nms, but I know a Fallyn who really likes her name and the flow of the two together is really good.
Isla Brave - love Isla (hate that it is so popular). I actually think brave sounds really good with it as well, and this is coming from someone who seriously avoids word names.
Leighton Iris (lay-ton) - Iris doesn't sound quite right to me. I think a middle with a softer first sound would work better.
The reason I usually don't like short first names is because they don't have nicknames and I always wanted one. I also always wanted a more formal name. But I think you are right on with the length and vibe of your middles. I could easily see someone using both names without it sounding awkward.

Fia Scarlet - Love it!
Thea Adeline - Not my favorite. Though both names separate I like (although I do prefer Adelaide to Adeline!)
Rorie Maeve / Rorie Mae - I like Maeve more than Mae
Fallyn Elise - This is just okay
Isla Brave - Love Brave! I also like, just like, Isla. I have Isla Noor on my *maybe* list
Leighton Iris - I like this with Rory but I feel like having 2 sisters Leighton and Fia or Leighton and Isla would just be unfair! (is that just me??)Smothering one fur baby, my darling dog Briony Ember
