    I like Esther the best.

    I love Eleanor as well, but Esther feels so versatile to me soft yet with sharp tones. Lovely history and meaning. Option of Tess and Essie. It feels more vibrant.

    If you're moving to the U.K. I'd avoid Eleanor and Eliza, they're incredibly popular. Eliza tripled in births from 2006 to 2012 (#61), Eleanor is getting less popular, but there are tons of them in every age group (#63). Esther's ranked at #156 (342 babies), and has had a quite steady over the past 15 years.

    I'm a huge fan of Esther... it's so soft sounding, but has such a unique strength due to the Biblical story. Love it!

    Really loving Eliza with Agatha and Henry! What a lovely trio. I like Eleanor, too, but not to the same extent. Esther is lovely, and I think it fits with the vintage style of Agatha very well--I just don't like it very much, sorry.

    I think Elodie or even Eloise would fit well with Agatha and Henry, as well.

    All the best!

    Which name do you like best please and why? I'd love to hear other suggestions (beginning with any letter!) if you have the time.

    Sibling are Agatha and Henry.
    Eleanor it's effortless, classy and works beautifully with Agatha and Henry : )
