    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.
    olivia - eighteen (finally!), england but sometimes canada. i like names, film & philosophy.
    i'm desperately maternal.

    ''BOYS R SENSITIVE''''GIRLS R SRTONG'';
    Rufus ○ Wilfred ''Wilf'' ○ Emmett ○ Hugh ○ Edgar ○ Crispin ○ William
    Rosemary ''Romy'' ○ Annabel ○ Maude ○ Sibyl ''Billie'' ○ Oona ○ Mavis ○ Fenella ''Nell''

    [other beloved / honour names, perhaps middles; Baez, Nicholas, George, Alec, Cathal, Margaret, Briar, Amelia, Beatrix, Agnes, Nancy & Lettice]

    Do you think the two syllables go okay with eachother?

    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.
