    Thank you for weighing in! Any reason why you ultimately chose this pair?

    Mabel Cordelia and Alice Henrietta

    I think Cordelia modernizes Mabel just enough to keep it fresh-sounding. Alice can withstand the "old lady " feel of Henrietta without making the entire name sound like grandma

    To me both Alice and Cordelia have a magical, whimsical feel, whilst Mabel and Henrietta are more fun, sprightly, and energetic. So I’d go Alice Cordelia and Mabel Henrietta.
