    I know you didn't ask for opinions, but since it helped me decide the keeps and drops, I figure it would be helpful for you to read my reasoning too.

    Violet Andromeda Lark - Lovely, lovely! KEEP
    Beatrice Luna "Bea" - This one is nice and whimsical, but I prefer Luna Beatrice though. KEEP
    Florence - I like this, and with the right middle name, Florence becomes a spectacular name. KEEP
    Olive Arabella June - I don't see the appeal of Olive, it seems very silly as a name to me. Arabella June is lovely though. DROP
    Harriet Ivy Winter "Hattie" - The full name is formal and lovely, but I'm not a fan of Hattie. KEEP
    Antigone Rose Elizabeth "Effy" - I don't like Antigone; all I can see is a lot of 'Anti Gone' headache. As a middle name, it's alright. Rose Elizabeth Antigone is quite nice. DROP
    Clementine - This doesn't appeal to me at all. It just feels very heavy and over the top. DROP
    Henrietta Phoebe "Etta" - I like it, but it's not really my style. Etta is still very old lady to me. KEEP
    Hermione Poet "Hera" - Hermione, as it is, is quite unusual and very connected to Harry Potter. I rather see it paired with a more classic name. DROP
    Wilhelmina Daisy "Willa" or "Mina" - Cute! Daisy is a little questionable for me, but I can imagine a very cute girl with this name. KEEP
    Ottilie Maeve "Tilly" - Flow is great, but Ottilie and Tilly isn't for me. Maeve is gorgeous though! DROP
    Persephone "Seph" - Love! So light and free-spirited to me! KEEP
    Matilda "Maude" or "Tilda" - The 'Tild' part gets to me, especially since I don't like the name/nickname Tilly. Maude makes an interesting nickname though. DROP
    Octavia Lily - I would have never picked this name out, but paired with Lily, Octavia somehow becomes usable and even cute to me. Would you be using a nickname for Octavia? KEEP
    Sybil Guinevere - Sybil is super old lady to me and I much prefer Genevieve and Jennifer over Guinevere. DROP
    Agnes "Aggie" - This is slowly growing on me, recently, it has promoted from 'would never use' to 'maybe for a middle name'. KEEP
    Orla Persephone Mae - Orla just makes me think of 'oral' and the sound of Orla just isn't pretty to me. Persephone Mae, beautiful. KEEP
    Esther Valentine/Esther Bluebell "Essie" - Esther 'Essie' is great. I slightly prefer Esther Valentine over Esther Bluebell because of flow, but both whimsical middle names work quite nicely with Esther. KEEP
    Edith "Edie" - This still hasn't quite crossed over to 'refreshing' to me yet, but it's not bad. KEEP
    Cordelia Hero "Cora" - I'm not a fan of Cordelia, but I understand the appeal of it. I don't understand Hero though, it just makes me think of super heroes and comic books and seems silly to use it as a name/middle name for a girl. DROP

    After dropping 8, these are the remaining ones I like the best. My personal order from liking the most to liking the least:

    1. Florence -> I know a F., a French little lovely girl, just love this name
    2. Violet Andromeda Lark -> I would A. replace by a more common name like Andrea or Adriana and not use Lark at all
    3. Hermione Poet "Hera" -> Sigh, love H., don´t like Poet, maybe Lyra (close to Lyric to keep the theme)
    4. Matilda "Maude" or "Tilda" -> nn Tilda better than Maude (imo)
    5. Harriet Ivy Winter "Hattie" -> beautiful choice
    6. Henrietta Phoebe "Etta" -> same, beautiful choice
    7. Antigone Rose Elizabeth "Effy" -> how about Elizabeth Antigone Rose?
    8. Wilhelmina Daisy "Willa" or "Mina" -> not my taste, but nice and grounded, strong name
    9. Persephone "Seph" -> nn Penny?
    10. Cordelia Hero "Cora"
    11. Ottilie Maeve "Tilly" -> I like Tilly, not really Ottilie
    12. Orla Persephone Mae (rethinking middle names as I have Persephone as a first name)
    13. Sybil Guinevere -> I don´t like Sybil at all since it´s an old ladys name where I´m from (not classic, just dated as in not usuable these days), but I really like Guinevere. So i propose Guinevere ... Sybil?
