Fluttering Fairies and Sweet Sunshine - Sisters for Miss Tilly.
So, I think I have finally settled on Tilly Madeline (although it is subject to change), but I'm having a little bit of trouble finalizing some sisters for Tilly.
As of right now, I have the following on my list:
I'm thinking of names that have a similar (but not exactly the same) feel to Tilly (and yes, the names already on my list do fall into this category for me). The imagery I have for Tilly is like this (taken from my MN post);
Tilly, for me, reminds me a lot of my childhood, playing in my Nana's massive garden, pretending to be princesses, picking flowers, imagining fairies, chasing butterflies, feeding bunnies, etc. Tilly reminds me of happiness, youthfulness, playfulness and fun - playing pretend, and being full of imagination. It brings to mind some pastel pinks, purples and greens - typical garden colours. It also seems to bring old-fashioned English cottages to mind, and Cicely Mary Barker's 'Flower Fairies'.
Here are some images I connect to Tilly, if they help any;

I tried to look at the pictures, but only the 3rd one worked. Tilly Madeline is very sweet.
Tilly feels very cutesy to me, so I wouldn't pick a sister name to be something like Eleanor or Florence. I like all the names on your list, and this is how I will divide them:
FN: I think Tilly works well with all of these:
MN: These go with Madeline:
Alice Eleanor would be an amazing combo! Tilly Madeline & Alice Eleanor are sort of perfect
Alice Imogen is also quite nice. (** Looking back, I realize Alice Eleanor may be a bit of a mouthful. Alice Imogen is better.) Alice Georgia.
Martha Eleanor is really nice - I find Eleanor quite versatile, so it will probably be in a bunch of these combos. Martha Imogen - I really like, Martha Florence - feels a bit too old lady, Martha Beatrice - nice.
Lucy Amelia or Lucy Florence would be my favourites. I think they are well balanced names, like Tilly Madeline.
Maisie is a bit harder to pair.
Maisie Beatrice - I don't like the repeating s sound.
Maisie Amelia - Actually, I really like this.
Maisie Georgia -I'm thinking I maybe should have put Georgia in the first name category because it's hard to pair as well since most of the FN's are 2 syllables and Georgia is too. But it works here!
Maisie Imogen - This is lacking a sparkle for me.
Maisie Florence - This works, the repeated s sound isn't as obvious.
Maisie Eleanor - The ie in Maisie clashes with the E of Eleanor.
So Maisie Amelia, Maisie Georgia & Maisie Imogen would be my three choices.
Elsie Imogen, Elsie Amelia, Elsie Georgia are my top three.
Ellie Beatrice, Ellie Florence, Ellie Imogen, Ellie Georgia.
Poppy Florence - avoid this. Reminds me of the poem In Flanders Fields.
Poppy Imogen or Poppy Beatrice are probably best. IDK why, but Poppy doesn't pair well with the middles on your list. Poppy Madeline would be best. Poppy Katherine. Poppy Louisa.
Beatrice, Jane, Rosie, Winnie & Adeline
Gideon, Charlie, Sawyer, Flynn & Lachlan

Thanks for the wonderful suggestions/input! :-)
@lovemysweeties - Thank you! The Madeline books were some of my favourites as a child, so they certainly tie into what I feel when I hear the name Tilly! :-) I've added Eloise, Rosalie, Delia, and Pippa as first name ideas, and Clementine, Emilia and May as MNs!
@waverly123 - Martha Eleanor, Alice Imogen, Lucy Florence, Ellie Beatrice & Poppy Katharine are beautiful
@handsallover - Holly is lovely, but it's a bit like a mashup of my name (Haley) and Tilly :/ I love Gemma, Rosie, Nellie, Nancy and Ivy though!please read this? : http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...l-to-Nameberry
