Thoughts On These?
I posted a list yesterday and got some wonderful advice, so I tweaked this list a little and I wanted to see what thoughts were now. I'm totally open to suggestions!
Auden-I'd like this in the middle name place
Garbo-Another name I think would be nice in the middle name
Lucy-Really love this one, but I haven't found any middle names I love
Maura-I'm open to this being either a first or middle name
Nola-Same goes here

Bay Victoria- Super sweet
Elle Serenity- Elle is a bit plain in my opinion but I prefer it much over Ella
Elissa Jane- I prefer the Alyssa spelling, it looks classier in my opinion
Finley Dove- Finley is unisex and Dove is a bird name. I love both names but not together
Greer Madeleine- I never saw any appeal to Greer. It sounds like "eerie" and would better fit a witch in my opinion, not a child
Hanna Esme- Hanna is a bit overused, even with this modified spelling
Harlow Virginia- Very pretty!
Lyla Rosemarie- I love Lila but only spelled this way
Auden- I love this as a first name but it's my cousin's so I can't use it. Lila Auden would be beautiful
Garbo- Sounds like "garbage" to me, sorry
Lucy- So pretty! Lucy Greer, Lucy Madeleine, or Lucy Dove would be beautiful!
Maura- I've heard two different pronunciations of this, is it like moy-ruh or more-uh? Or something else?
Nola- So pretty! Would be hard to fit in as a middle but would make a wonderful first!
Payton- A little boyish for my personal tastes
Pippa- Like but only as a nickname for Phillipa or PiperAbbyCompetitive dancer, hopeful writer, sophomore in high school, and most importantly, name obsessed.

My favourites of your combinations are...
Bay Victoria - love the combination of naturey/classic. So lovely.
Elissa Jane - I always love Jane in the middle, and Elissa is so soft sounding with it.
Greer Madeleine - Love both names, brilliant together.
Hanna Esme - Pretty, I know a baby Esme Hannah so I just really like how they sound together.
Auden - not usually my style but I really really like it. Also, Arden?
Garbo - I totally see the appeal but it's got quite a harsh sound to it. What about Greta? Monroe/Munro?
Pippa - I love love love Pippa. So adorable and pretty sounding. I know a few girls with the name, two of them (both under 5) are ''just Pippa''. I like Philippa a lot too, but Pippa on its own totally works. It's getting popular in the UK especially thanks to Pippa Middleton who is constantly in the public eye, still.
Do you like...

Bay Victoria- I like this as a combination but not just Bay on its own I'm afraid. It also has associations with Bey (Beyonce) which is something to consider. I do like the classic and the unexpected together though. (Ireland, Dova, Blue)
Elle Serenity- Elle is a lovely name which sounds very feminine so it is great to pair with a calm inducing middle. (Bella, Aurora, Felicity)
Elissa Jane- I like the Lissa ending and I know an Alyssa who goes by this, sweet sounding. (Josephine, Corlissa, Bliss)
Finley Dove- Love the use of Dove in the middle-rather like my Dova suggestion- and Finley adds a contemporary vibe. (Marley, Halcyon, Poet)
Greer Madeleine- Greer sounds too harsh for me and is softened by Madeleine but not enough to sway me, sorry! (Myrtle, Gretchin, Maudie)
Hanna Esme- My name is Hannah and my friend of the same name spelt it minus the h which I always thought looked unfinished. I'm biased but I've never had any problem with my name apart from it being so popular where I live. (Megan, Rachel, Sophie/Sophia)
Harlow Virginia- Love the old and new style you've got going on and the sounds just marry beautifully. (Dulcinea, Winter, Della, Stella)
Lyla Rosemarie- I do like this combo, although it isn't my favourite. A very sweet choice. (Phila, Cecily, Lavender)
Auden-Lovely. Sounds spunky yet cute and feminine. A well rounded choice. (Adair, Arden, Rossetti)
Garbo-I don't like this one as it reminds me of garbage. (Gabrielle, Harper, Calla)
Lucy-This is cute but really popular where I live so I don't like it as much as it deserves. Some middle name ideas are: Lucy Madeline, Lucy Indigo, Lucy Etta, Lucy Josephine. (Lucille, Linnea, Lucienne, Lucia)
Maura-Absolutely love this one! Different yet familiar and would age so well. (Eivissa, Maury, Maude)
Nola-Not my favourite as it reminds me of the male name Nolan. I can see some appeal though. (Oriolle, Lily, Nerissa)
Payton- I'm not a fan because it just isn't my style. (Riley, Paisley, Bailey)
Pippa- Has a cute nn Pip but it sounds quite childish to me, sorry. (Philomena, Piper, Fern)
Other ideas: Perdita, Cordelia, Djuna, Cressida, Arbour, Larkin, Cosima XEulalie/Eulalia Clio & Lysander James
Oberon (Bear) (mn suggestions welcome)
