    Timeless and sophisticated name

    Looking for a classic, timeless & sophisticated name for my daughter coming in September. My first born is Colin James.

    Our current favorites are:
    Caroline Mae
    Clara Simone or Clara Wren
    Claire Elizabeth
    Any feedback or suggestions?

    Since I'm not a huge fan of sibling names starting with the same letter, I'm not loving any of these choices. However, apart from that my favourite is Clara Wren. I also like Clara Mae as a combo since it's a bit lighter.

    England 1920 - 1940

    Margaret Irene, Stella Maureen, Monica June, Hazel Diana, Mildred Marie, Veronica Ivy, Jean Elizabeth, Joan Beatrice

    Pamela Daphne, Dorothy Mavis, Gladys Pauline, Doris Eleanor, Eileen May, Sybil Rosemary, Jennifer Anne, Betty Josephine

    Sarah Bridget, Shirley Jaqueline, Agnes Marlene, Marina Joy, Gloria Violet, Wendy Teresa, Peggy Sylvia, Molly Judith

    old combos and previous signatures

    My favorite is Caroline Mae, followed by Clara Wren (Caroline Wren would also be awesome). Using the middle names from your list, with Colin James I like
    Alice Mae
    Catrina Simone
    Eliza Mae
    Alexandra Mae
    Eva Mae
    Eleanore Wren
    Camille Elizabeth
    ~ Elisabeth Odelia "Elsie" ~ Gideon Boone ~
    ~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~
    ~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~

    Just thought of one more idea, Mary, or a version of Mary like Molly or Maura would defiantly be timeless and sophisticated and goes great with Colin.

    ~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~
    ~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~

    Like @opheliaflora, I'm not a fan of sibling names that begin with the same letter. If their names do begin with the same letter, the last letter or sound should absolutely be different. That eliminates Caroline (which is way too close in sound to Colin anyway). I prefer Clara Simone to Claire Elizabeth, though I do find Claire to be slightly more classic than Clara. How about Elizabeth Claire?
