    I agree with Blade completely.
    You dont need to use Eilir if youre using Diane. 1 name is enough to honor. If youre willing to use Diane as a second middle, Eilir is really unnecessary. Use that slot for something you are head over heels for.

    If youre interested in 2 middles, heres the formula I used with all of my 6 named babies:
    1-2-3 syllabes. could be in different orders, but it helps with flow. 2 of mine have 2-2-2 syllables.
    Diane is grounded. You can use a more modern name up front, paired with a lovely flowy middle. 1 very unusual name is enough, especially in a 3 name combo.

    Hope this helps!
    so beautiful you are honoring the memory of your mom <3

    I quite love Eilir, actually! It sounds very melodic. I'm not terribly fond of Rowan on a girl--I love it for a boy!--but I do think something along the lines of Everly Eilir (or even Ever Eilir, or Evangeline Eilir, Evelyn Eilir, Evelina Eilir, Eva Eilir, nn Evie?) would be super sweet. I also love the idea of Charlotte Eilir... It seems like you lean more toward unisex, but I think with Eilir (which seems a bit gender ambiguous to begin with) you need a more feminine first name, or at least a unisex name that is undeniably girl (which I can't really think of any that are that way--then again, I am quite a fan of unisex names on boys, as you'll see in my signature. I think Felicity Eilir or Verity Eilir would be lovely, too.

    I am pretty set on Eilir for the middle name. My mother was never particularly fond of Diane herself. I think she would really love the nod to butterflies. She always wore atleast one butterfly everyday. I am a little surprised at the response towards Everly. It does not feel trendy or made up to me at all, and definitely feels feminine. None the less, I appreciate all the feedback and suggestions.

    How about Artemis? The Greek equivalent of Diana is beautiful, unusual but a little more familiar than Eilir.
