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 PiperAbby|17|Writer|Competitive Dancer|Class of 2017

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.

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 XName lists still under construction
