    Norah/Nora - I prefer the Nora spelling. It's cute but has started to feel a bit overused.
    Maggie - I love Maggie! It has such a sweet and cozy feel to it. With nickname names on the rise, I don't think it needs a full name.
    Piper - I feel like Piper is very tied to this era, which is a big no-no for me. That said it's certainly cute.
    Paige - Second favorite after Maggie, it's another very sweet and adorable name that I can imagine on any woman.

    Nora- depending on where you live it could be very popular. I live in south where it isn’t in the top 30. I just named my daughter Nora, and was born this month.
    Maggie- I like it as a nickname. I think Magnolia is a modern twist.
    Piper- cute but I think it will become a dated name.
    Paige- I think is great for a middle name

    Nora: I like this; it feels simple, strong and nicely international. I do prefer Cora and Flora, but Nora has a lovely sound too. I much prefer it without the final -h.

    Maggie: Very cute and cool, but I would too prefer it short for something... Maybe Margot, Magda or Magali?

    Piper: This feels like a slightly different style to most of the names in your signature - more spunky modern than vintage revival - but I really like it. It feels bright and energetic, and I love the potential for Pip for short! I also really like Pippa, which has a similar sound but is perhaps more in-keeping with your broader style?

    Paige: This is the only one from your list that I dislike. It's pretty well-used where I live, and I'm just not keen at all on the look or sound. It's nowhere near as lively or pretty as your other options to me.

    I also love Julia, Willa, Beth, Tess and Leonie from your list! How about Sylvie, Polly, Daphne, Frida, Greta or Blythe?

    Thanks all for your thoughts, very helpful!

    I think I've been persuaded over to the Nora spelling.

    Probably should have mentioned that we are based in Australia, so none of the names are very commonly used here! I know that Nora and Paige in particular would be far more "overused" in the US.

    From your longer list I want to talk about Willa, Ruth, and Edie! Personally, I'd rank them Ruth (Ruthie is so cute!), Edie, Willa, Nora, then Maggie.
    Alas DH has vetoed Willa and Edie, but Ruth is still on our list for middles.
