I think you need 3 syllables to keep it in balance and make it flow (depending on your last name). I like Josephina Lucia, Josephine Allegra, Josephine Amara, Josephine Aletta.
Honestly, I think Josaphina goes better with your choices (except Tzophia, Leona and Felicity) as they stress the first syllable (immediately after the stressed 'phine' from Josephine). An unstressed syllable ('a' ending Josephina) creates some flow.

Hmm? You pronounce Josephine like jo-seh-FEEN? I say it JO-seh-feen. I thought everyone did. So JO-seh-feen ZIN-ee-ah, JO-seh-feen feh-LISS-it-ee, etc...
For what it's worth, the surname is 2 syllables, and the second middle will likely be only 1 syllable (Ruth, Rue, Claire, Kate, Jane, Pearl, June, etc.).Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller
List under major construction. Thinking about today:
Elisabeth Clara Plum "Liesey" ▪ Judah Théophile Grey ▪ Pearl Antônia Sabine ▪ Schuyler Ezra Grey
Casper Nathaniel Eden ▪ Eleanor Pasqualina Mary "Lena" ▪ Samuel Gaspard John ▪ Poppy Thea Elisabeth
Elliot Joshua ▪ Verity Ophelia ▪ Rory Maximilian ▪ Amelia Winter
Felicity Emmanuelle ▪ Seamus Oscar ▪ Lillian Pasqualina ▪ Alaric Joel
