    Re: What do you think of....

    Woo-hoo! Giant name list! :-)

    Adela and Willa: I seriously love both names, but am thinking that the -la endings are a bit repetitive/matchy. What about Adelaide and Willa?

    Adelaide and Charlotte: Love! :-)

    Adelaide and Cordelia: What? Cordelia is on your list? I'm so happy! I have to get up and do a little dance.... Would you call her Cora? I love Cora and Addie!
    Then again they both contain del, which makes them a bit matchy. I love Cordelia with:

    Emmeline
    Genevieve
    Amaryllis
    Beatrix (LOVE Cordelia, Beatrix, and Dorothy!) :-)
    Clementine
    Eloise

    Too many more to mention. Cordelia Pearl is one of my favorite Cordelia combos. :-)

    Adelaide and Esther: I'm not personally an Esther fan, but I can better see Esther with:

    Amaryllis
    Florence
    Lucille

    Adelaide and Florence: I think this is pretty! (And I love the Flora/Florie nickname.) :-)

    Adelaide and Matilda: I love this, too!

    Adeline and Estelle: Very pretty! Pronunciation issues may arise with Adeline, though, with ad-uh-line and ad-uh-leen.

    Allegra and Emmeline: I love both names, but I think Allegra needs a more exotic partner. (Now that I think about it, I can't see Dorothy and Allegra as sisters...) :-(

    Amaryllis and Genevieve: Fantastic, although if I were Amaryllis, I'd be really mad that I wasn't named Genevieve. :-)

    Genevieve and Eloise
    Genevieve and Emmeline (I so love this!)
    Genevieve and Cordelia
    Genevieve and Anneliese

    Amaryllis and Lavender: I love flowers and floral names, but this is too much of a theme for me, especially with twins.

    Anastasia and Francesca: Lovely, but they're very different from Dorothy.

    Annelise and Emmeline: Great!

    Annemarie and Emmeline: I prefer Anneliese and Emmeline.

    Ariel and Aurora (hehehe): Too much of a princess theme...I love Aurelia with Dorothy, though, and it's close to both names. :-)

    Athena and Diana: I can see Diana with Dorothy, but not Athena. Cool Greek theme, though! :-)

    Athena and Penelope: I LOVE Penelope, and love it with Dorothy, too, but Athena doesn't mix for me.

    Audrey and Caroline: I love both names, but they don't feel as old fashioned as Dorothy to me, so her name sticks out here to me.

    Augusta and Louisa: LOVE! :-)

    Aurelia and Elora: I love Aurelia, but these two are too simlar for me in sound.

    Aurora and Scarlett: Absolutely gorgeous, but I think they're too feminissima with Dorothy. Also, I just realized that Dorothy and Aurora share the same "or" sound.

    Beatrix and Eleanor: LOVE! (Beatrix is one of my favorites, and I'm so happy it's on your list!) Would they be Nora and Bea? SO cute! :-)

    Caroline and Elizabeth: I think they're too vanilla/safe for Miss Dorothy.

    Caroline and Virginia: Ditto, plus I know a Virginia who suffered through Virgin and vagina jokes. :-(

    Cecilia and Cordelia: I love both names, but their ia endings are too similar for me.

    Charlotte and Emmeline: Love! I think Emmeline is great with Dorothy, but I think Charlotte makes the combo seem too safe. (I just realized that Aunt Em is in The Wizard of Oz, so with Dorothy and Em, you'd have a WOZ theme going on.)

    Charlotte and Georgia: I can't see Georgia with Dorothy, but I can see the older Georgina and Georgiana.

    Clementine and Susannah: LOVE! It feels very Southern, but I love it! :-)

    Cordelia and Amaryllis: LOVE!

    Cordelia and Matilda: LOVE!

    Corinne and Delphine: I love both names, but Dorothy doesn't fit the French theme.

    Diana and Jacqueline: I love both, but can't see the combo with Dorothy.

    Elizabeth and Margaret: I think these are beautiful names, although a safe choice with Dorothy.

    Elizabeth and Sarah: I'll give this a thumb's up if you'll call Sarah "Sally." :-)

    Eloise and Madeline: I LOVE Eloise, but Madeline is too popular for me and Dorothy. :-)
    I love Eloise and Beatrix! :-) They totally match Dorothy's vintage feel and spunkiness to me!


    Eloise and Matilda: LOVE! I really love this literary theme, and the fact that Dorothy's name fits, too. Would they be Dottie, Lulu and Tillie?


    Emerald and Ruby: With Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, plus the Emerald City and the ruby slippers, this is too much of the Wiz for me.

    Emmeline and Glenna: Reminds me of Glenda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz, especillay with Dorothy and Em.

    Emmeline and Matilda: I think this is great!

    Felicity and Matilda: LOVE! LOVE!

    Florence and Estelle: Pretty...

    Florence and Louisa: I think this is pretty, too....

    Georgia and Josephine: I love this, but think Georgina or Georgiana work better with Dorothy's vintage vibe.


    Grace and Rose: I love Rose as a first name, but I'm thinking it may be too Golden Girls, because you'll have half of the cast as your daughters. :-)

    Helena and Loretta: Not a Loretta fan, because I picture Loretta Tortelli from Cheers.
    :-) I really love Helena, though! :-)

    Helena and Sophia: I love this, but Sophia is 1/4 of the Golden Girls, and with your Dorothy, you'll have half the cast.

    Isabella and Madeline: Isabella is #2 in the US, so it's super popular, and Madeline/Madison are very popular, too.

    Isis and Luna: I think they're too exotic for Dorothy, and with Luna, I do think of looney. :-(

    Jacqueline and Marguerite: I thought of the sisters from "Ever After!" (I love that movie!) :-) I love these names, and while I can see Marguerite with Dorothy, I can't see Jacqueline.

    Jocelyn and Rosalind: I LOVE Rosalind, and think it's a great way to incorporate Rose without going the Golden Girls route with Dorothy. I can't see Jocelyn with Dorothy, though, and think the endings of the names sound too close. Hmmm...What about Helena and Rosalind?

    Johanna and Glenna: I prefer some of your other combos.

    Josephine and Thomasina: I LOVE this, and you could call Thomasina "Tamsin," just like in The Return of the Native. :-)

    Lavender and Magnolia: Too much of a theme to me.

    Lorelei and Annelise: I can't see Lorelei with Dorothy, but I think the combo is beautiful.

    Lorraine and Marilyn: I really love Lorraine, but I'm not a Marilyn fan. I love Mary and Laura, though!

    Lucinda and Tabitha: I think this is great with Dorothy! Dottie, Lucy, and Tibbie! :-)

    Lucille and Tabitha: Ditto, but I love Lucinda more.

    Lucy and Sally: I LOVE this! I'm so happy to see Lucy and Sally here, and love them with Dorothy! (Standing ovation!) :-)

    Maeve and Willa: I think this is great !

    Mariana and Serena: I can see Mariana with Dorothy, but not Serena.

    Marianne and Emmeline: I prefer some of your other combos... I guess Marianne still seems dated to me. Hmmm....I really love Mariana, though.

    Marianne and Rosalind: I love Mariana and Rosalind! It's very Shakespearean. :-)

    Marilyn and Shirley: I really like Shirley, but I'm not feeling it with Marilyn.
    (Now that I think about it, I'm thinking of Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe, so it feels like an Old Hollywood theme for me, especially with Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.)

    Matilda and Louisa: Standing ovation! :- )

    Matilda and Tabitha: I love this, too, although Tillie and Tibbie are too close for me.

    Maureen and Suzanne: Sadly, my least favorite from your list. I like Miriam and Susannah, though!

    Penelope and Rosemary: I think this is amazing! :-)

    Tessa and Willa: I really love Willa and Tess, but Tessa is actually pretty trendy now, so I can't see it with Dorothy.


    Others in case I havent mentioned:
    Rosalie: LOVE
    June: LOVE
    Ruby: LOVE
    Paige (to honor someone): I don't think it works with the other names...What about a P initial or using it as a middle name?
    Pearl: LOVE
    Rosaline: LOVE
    Marina: Prefer Mariana
    Seraphine: Lovely....
    Arbor: Not my style, but I can see its appeal...
    Autumn: Ditto
    Emerald: Very Wizard of Oz with Dorothy
    Meadow: Soprano
    Liberty: Bell :-)
    Scarlett: I really love this!
    Summer: See Autumn...
    Darla: I prefer some of your others...
    Glenna (honor someone): I can see it as a middle, but up front, I think it sounds like Glenda the Good Witch with Dorothy. What about the Welsh Glynis? (Didn't a Glynis play the mom in Mary Poppins?)
    Suellen: I prefer some of your other names...
    Agatha: Ditto...
    Allegra: I love it, but not with Dorothy
    Evangeline: I love this, too, and think it totally works!
    Elora: I prefer Eloisa or Eleanora, but I do think it's pretty.
    Leisel: I love this, but wonder if weasel jokes may arise because of the rhyme. I have to applaud any Sound of Music name, though. Wait. Then again, with Dorothy's name being associated so easily with The Wizard of Oz, I think I may stay away from a name that's obviously from another movie musical. Darn.
    Liselotte: I think this is lovely...
    Octavia: Cool!
    Catalina: I can't see this with Dorothy, but I think it's pretty!
    Tuesday: Weld. That said, I think it could make a cute middle name.
    Willow: Too Palin for me, and I can't see it with Dorothy. (It's destined to reach Trendyville soon, but I love Willa.)
    Iris: LOVE
    Esmeralda: I think it's interesting, but am more of an Esme person.

    I love too many of your names and combos to only list a few here, and I'm really excited for you! :-)

    Good luck! :-)
