    Delphine and Delphia are both nice but I've always loved simple Delphi more than the longer forms.

    Alphonsine feels unusable. Elvire is quite lovely, I've never heard if before but I do like Elvira a lot.

    Philomena and Wendy are two that I've never seen the appeal for but I guess they're pretty names.

    I love Lorraine Elvire.

    Yeah, I think it's fine.

    But then again I tend to focus more on how they 'go' stylistically than how they sound... I guess as a combo Lorraine Elvire doesn't follow the rules but I don't think good combos always have to. It's beautiful.
