I love Serena and I really like Summer and Georgiana, and Colette.
I think Poppy is a silly name for a person, especially an adult. Claudia is okay, but the meaning kill me, Haesley; while being a family name, looks made up and trendy, so it loses points. Sadie is a bit nicknamey for a first name imo.
I like Jane, Quinn, Adelaide, Auria, Juniper. The rest are nms at all.
Haesley Jane is fine, but again the Haesley is so madeup looking to me. I can't take it seriously. Serena Haesely is much better, for example. Or you could modify Haesley to Hazel.2O - Aries - Slytherin - Daycare Assistant Teacher

Serena Haesley - yes yes yes!
Georgiana Lark - fantastic. The first name is classic and feminine with the middle being a little snazzier, more modern, yet uplifting! Honestly, Lark is my favorite middle name on the list if you're going to go with any sort of longer, -ia ending first name.
I like Poppy but have a hard time putting it in the first spot.
Summer Clemence - Truly, Summer isn't a favorite name of mine but this combo strikes me as well rounded.
Claudia Quinn has a nice ring to it. The near-alliteration and varied backgrounds of the two names sets it apart. However, I really don't think you can go wrong with Quinn in the middle.
Paloma is such a fabulous, under-valued middle. However, I'm having trouble matching it up well with your first names. I think it sounds best with Sadie, Sadie Paloma, just because they're so different. Perhaps you have other snappy one or two syllable first name favorites you could pair with the fair Paloma!
Haesley Juniper is so wonderful and happy-looking.. You'll definitely have some spelling problems with Haesley, but honestly with the family background it'll be worth it. Plus, it's hard to find a name that won't be spelled or pronounced incorrectly at some point in time. Even Jane can turn to Jean when it's a busy day at Starbucks.
And truly, Hazel is a top 5 favorite of mine. So if you wouldn't be totally crushed to switch it over, a million more options would open up for you!!
Thoroughly enjoyed your names! Welcome to nameberry.

Hi again! Thanks for all of these wonderful suggestions. Many of you recommended the name Georgiana Lark. Gasp! I am in love with this combo. Even DH, who is not a fan of Georgiana, is impressed. Maybe I'll get to keep it on my list after all!
The name we both love is Poppy and that's been our name for awhile, but of course, now we're re-thinking. I can see that Poppy is a love it/really dislike it name and I'm okay with that. What has me rethinking is our last name, which is Eddie. Is that too cutesy, Poppy Eddie? (I know we could do Penelope, but we only like that name).
DH really likes Summer. I like it a lot, especially with the combinations of Summer Auria or Summer Clemence.
So, names I'm loving from this post are:
Claudia Jane (it is a shame about the meaning, isn't it lame? poor girl would hate that)
If anyone has new first or middle name suggestions based on my likes, feel free to offer. New ideas are welcome as DH may be tough (he's a teacher and has seen so many names and has so many associations, it's frustrating). DH also loves classic names while mama loves beautiful and sweet names with a cool middle.
One week to go and then I'll find out if it she really is a girl!

I love your choices! A lot of good ones. Try lopping off the first names or second middle for more options but here's what I thought of.
Haesley Summer Clementine
Hazel Mary Adelaide (more streamlined)
Sadie Jane Agnes
Poppy Theodora Mae (switching up Dorothy, like it a bit better)

My tastes always trend toward vintage spunky but not too trendy, and i love feminizations of more clunky male names- so I like Claudia, Georgina, and Rae, and I think Jane is one of those names that is impossible to hate. Poppy is sweet and British but I love Phillipa nn Pippa so much more, it has the same vibe but more substance. Serena is lovely and Serena Jane or Serena Haesley are both classic without feeling very formal, Serenity Jane is similar and lovely with a great virtue meaning. Besides those my favorite combos are
Claudia Mary Quinn (Mary always sounds weird as a middle to me by itself)
Dorothy nn dot/Dottie Juniper is cute too
