    Just realized I missed this on my last comment:

    We are warming up to the names Felicity, Elsa, and Charlotte but not totally sure on them yet

    Lola could be a nn for Penelope - a little bit of a stretch but not unheard of... since you like both.
    “Millie”: this is my cousins nn and her full name is Camilla.
    Penelope: I like Penny, and Lola best.
    “Emmy” - Does Emmeline work? Emmerson?
    Gwendolyn/Gwendolen: Wendy, Gwen, Lynn, Gwyn, Winnie
    Coco: also my cousin’s nn - twin sister of Camilla- her full name is Constance.
    Rebecca - nn Bex would be cute and modern.
    Elizabeth could be nn Elsa or Elsie

    Since you like Paloma how about: Mariposa nn Posy or Zenobia nn Zee or Bee, even Noa

    Also: Pearl, Isobel, Minerva nn Minnie (as you like Millie), Violet, Viola, Isla, Aurelia nn Leah or Elia, Wren, Willow, Teagan, and Flora/Fleur

    So, I'm going off of your above post:

    Stella - Use Estella as a long form, Stella as a nickname? Also, Essa, Essie, Estee, or Esme?
    Genevieve - Evie is an adorable nickname, love this one. Genevieve Margaret W. is lovely.
    Lola - This sounds like a first name you would like, but try it as a nickname for Eloise to appease hubby!
    Millie - You could use this for Matilda as well... (Matilda/Tilly)
    Penelope - Can be shortened to Pen, Penny, Nell, Nellie, or Poppy!
    Emmy - It looks like all Emily variants are off the table, so no Emmeline?
    Susanna(h) - Zanna is very chic, and Sanna is lovely, too. Cute Sosie is spunky and fresh, as is Sunny! Like this name.
    Gwendolen - Well, you could use Gwen, Gwennie, Wendy, Dolly? I've long loved Gwendolen.
    Hazel - No real nicknames, but a nice name. Doesn't really seem "you" based on your little list.

    Others you might consider:

    Cordelia - Coco as a nickname! Or Cora, Delia, Lia.
    Dorothea - Dot is spunky, Dottie is cute, but Thea is elegant and fun.
    India - A quintessential quirky classic, and very Brit chic. Indie as a nickname is fabulous.
    Cecelia - Cece, Celia, Lia, Celie, or even Ciel work as nicknames for this pretty classic.
    Abilene - Comfy Abby as a nickname, but also vintage Billie or ladylike Lena.
    Coraline - Coco, Cora? Cute as can be, but fun, spunky, charming.
    Jessamine - A vintage name with so much pizazz! Jess, Jessa, Jessie, Minnie...
    Sarita - A Sarah spin-off. Sara, Sari?
    Mariel - Romantic and charming. Mare, Mari, Marie, Elle.

    Boy Combinations: Archer Solomon James, Ronan Charles Bennett, Everett Hawthorn Thomas
    Girl Combinations: Phoebe Marietta Pearl, Clara Daphne Eloise
    Other Favorites: Eliza (Eliza Wren), Juliet, Rosanna, Thea, Johanna, Jude

Also, did you mean Margaret rather than Margot? Margot isn't one of our middle name options and we don't want to change the names since they are after family members
