    I've always loved Gloria and I think it is way underused! I almost voted for Rosamund because of its nn potential, but then I realized that one of the reasons Gloria is so amazing is because it doesn't need a nn to be universally appealing.

    I also have a soft spot for Mabel, as it was my great-grandmother's name and I can't use it myself because it clashes horribly with my last name.

    I went with Rosamund Gloria Chrchyard. I love Rosamund. So strong yet evocative of roses and their fragrance. Gloria is also wonderful. I think of the Patti Smith song, which is probably not what you were going for, but I think it's great.
    I dislike Mabel. It makes me think marmalade, quilting bees, etc. And this from someone who likes "old lady" names.
    I think with last name Churchyard, Gloria as a first name feels super religious. Not that that's a bad thing, but it might be less versatile than a more "secular" name. Mary Churchyard or Evangeline Grace Churchyard could definitely be problematic.

    I voted for Gloria, because I think it is a beautiful name, with a lovely meaning. It is a name that will grow with her.

    Mabel Gloria Churchyard in that order would be my choice. I think that Gloria and Church in the same sentence are a little too much but Gloria is lovely in the middle name spot.
