    Leonie is pretty. You can also say it the French way and spell it with an accent, emphasising the 'lé' rather than the 'on'

    Some I picked for the similarity in meaning, some for the sound, some for both.

    Leonard- Leonie, Leonor, Leonora, Ariel, Leya, Leandra, Leontine, Aria.

    Cecil- Cecilia, Celia, Zilke, Celeste / Celestia / Celestina / Celestial, Cerelia, Ceylon, Cerys.

    William- Willa, Billie, Twila, Abilene (a bit of a stretch though), Rosamond / Rosamund, Wylie.

    Elizabeth- Elspeth, Elza (also means 'joy', so it could honour Joyce as well.), Elsa, Eliza, Lilibet, Lilibeth, Elke, Eliana, Eliane, Elodie, Zabeth, Azile, Bette, Elsie, Bettina, Lisette, Ilsa, Ilse, Tibby, Isabeau, Isabetta, Elyse.

    Joyce- Jolie, Gioia, Allegra, Bayo, Leta / Letitia (for Leonard too).
    Vesper Opal, Dossie Gardener, Shalom Galilee, Easter Paloma, Mary Valentine, Agnes Gardenia, Benilde Beloved, Constance Camellia, Noonan Minnie, Bertie Frances, Betty Calloway, Mosley Opal, Yuki Magnolia, Francesca Opal, Gardenia Philou, Malou Anouk.

    I think Cecily is lovely! Have you considered Cecily Willa? Willa for William, and I think it goes beautifully with Cecily! Another suggestion is Joyce Willa or Willa Joyce. Leora Elizabeth is beautiful as well! As a variation of Elizabeth, there are adorable little diminutives like Beth and Bess and Eliza, and then there's the names like Elspeth. Can I also suggest Eliza Joyce? I hope this was helpful in some way! Beautiful names. For Joyce you could also do Gioia or just Joy. Maybe the French word for joy, Joie (pronounced "jwa).
