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:
Charlotte Leona (not sure about this--I feel like Leona Charlotte would work better, but I definitely prefer Charlotte up front)
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?

@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?
