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).Momo Flora

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).
