    FN for Leona?

    Leona was one of those crushes I really established a month or two ago when I was looking at lots of international variants/names familiar in other countries but not so used here. I love its German roots (for my German/Swiss ancestry!), and how it reminds me of my faith (what with all the lion/"lion of God" imagery I get!). I'm not sure I can see me with a little Leona, but I love it as a middle. Any ideas for a FN for Leona? So far, I've tossed around:

    Anne-Sophie Leona
    Charlotte Leona (not sure about this--I feel like Leona Charlotte would work better, but I definitely prefer Charlotte up front)
    Eva Leona
    Winter Leona "Winnie" (probably my favorite, but the least likely to actually make the cut for my list?)

    Arianne Leona or Catherine Leona are a huge longshot, and I had considered Emmeline Leona at one point, but I definitely prefer my current combo (Emmeline Poppy) to that. I like the idea of Madeleine Leona or Grace Leona, but I'm not sure I'd actually use either one of them up front...

    What works really well with Leona as a middle?

    Thanks, Berries!

    I like Eva Leona and Winter Leona "Winnie" from your list. I agree that Leona Charlotte is better than Charlotte Leona.

    @erin91 - meh. I just don't like Leonie or Leontine nearly so much. It's Leona that's really speaking to me right now, although I have liked Leonie in the past. I had thought about Violet Leona (which I really like) and Tess Leona, but I think I prefer my original combos (Tess Penelope and Violet Ophelia) in each case. I do really like Claire Leona, but I can't see me with a Claire for some reason. Maybe something like Eva Leona Claire/Eva Claire Leona?

    I sort of like Iris Leona and Audrey Leona, though! The others aren't really my style, but I do love Iris and Audrey.

    Any other ideas?
