    Combo ideas:

    Pearl Genevieve (either pronunciation of Genevieve would work well)
    June Genevieve (ditto)
    Fern Adelaide

    Combos using one of your names and new suggestions:

    Winola Opal (a combo off my own list that will likely never be used)
    Rosalyn Opal
    Mia Maizie
    Clara Belle
    Clara Christelle
    Nora Fern
    Nora Nell
    Vienna Juliet
    Johanna June
    Gloria Opal

    Thank you Lexiem. I think I am leaning towards Ines ... it is easy, cute, bilingual and grows up well. I know that DH is pushing for Clara for the same reasons. It is nice to see that both fall into your love category. Naturally, that might change! I'm finding it hard to give up the frillier girls name options (this will be my last baby) that I have loved for so long, like Clementine and Adelaide.

    Alzora thank you so much for your in depth response.

    The pronounciation issue with Ianthe had been bothering me. I think you are right and it is time to strike it from the list!

    In Australia Harry doesn't seem to have the 'hairy' sounding pronounciation that it does in the US! I think Harry is an adorable nn for a little girl.

    Ines is in there because half the family speaks spanish and we know it'll be easy for them to pronounce as well as recognisable in English. DH is from South America.

    Oh, Nella, I quite like that.

    I like to hear that you like June. Everyone else I've mentioned it to has screwed up their noses and described it as plain and old, but not in a good way.

    I've always imagined that Adelaide would get the nn Lady, I never even thought of Addy, but I suppose that that may come about in school.

    I love Cleo and Remy too.

    No, we have no German heritage, maybe it is time to strike Elke from the list.

    I'd never consider a double barrel name but I must admit Mia-Mae is pretty cute. There is something lovely about repeated 'm' sounds.
