    1 week to due date and need opinions

    We have 3 girl names we like equally well and cannot decide, so we'd love some more opinions! Wyn would be the middle name.

    Persy Wyn (we decided against Persephone, but are concerned Persy may not work as well for an older female or may be less)

    Delphi Wyn (Del or Phi as a nn)

    Leonie Wyn (we would call her Leo or Onie as a nn)

    Let me know your thoughts !

    Is Wyn the middle name?

    I'm not sold on Persy. If you are ditching Persephone, why not spell it Percy? I could see why you might find that vaguely masculine and perhaps that's why you chose Persy? I agree it might not transition well, but I just think it will be difficult, even in childhood. It doesn't hold much weight. I think Peri could be a nice alternative, too.

    Delphine is really lovely, but I don't at all care for it with Wyn. It's just too abrupt, to be honest, and too much N back-to-back. Again, I'm not sure if Wyn is the last name or the middle name.

    Leonie and Leona are two of my absolute favorites, and Leonie Wyn sounds the best and most distinguished. Leo and Onie are interesting nicknames, but to each their own in terms of nicknames! I think Leonie is gorgeous! My vote goes to this one.

    Leonie Wyn! Leonie is one of my favorites, I think it would age well and it goes beautifully with Wyn. Delphine Wyn is too much "n" for my taste and I prefer Persephone to Persy but I really really like Leonie!
