    First of all, they're all pretty names and I don't think you can go wrong.

    Madison - I'm in my 20s, and I know so many Madisons / Madelines / Madelyns / Maddies / Maddys, I don't really love it anymore. That said, I don't know how many baby Maddie's are being born in 2019, so it could still be ok.

    Penelope - I think Penny is my favourite from your list. I like that she's got a long name, but can easily shorten it, and that you've picked the most obvious nickname, which will save her years of effort of - "I know Penny makes sense, but I actually go by Lola" etc.

    Scarlett - A pretty name, I feel it's somewhat dated.

    Celeste - I just prefer the sound of Penelope to the sound of Celeste.

    Eliza, Adeline, Felicity, Flora, Sophie, Beatrice, Rosalie, Harriet
    Charlie, Henry, Edwin, Felix, Lachlan, Leo, Wyatt,

    Out of the options I think Celeste is the prettiest and also goes well with the others

    Celeste and Penelope are both beyond gorgeous. I love nn Penny for Penelope, and I love how unique Celeste is, without being weird or unfamiliar.

    I think Penelope "Penny" Joy and Celeste Dawn are the loveliest of your options.

    Scarlett is pretty too, but Penelope and Celeste are just so stunning that Scarlett is #3 for me.

    Madison comes in at a distant #4 for me. I know sooooooooo many, ranging in age from 0-30. When I've met ever so many, it doesn't feel special anymore, but that's just me.

    PS. I really like the wonderful combined meaning of Celeste Dawn - Heavenly morning.

    I love Penelope best from your list. Penelope Joy would be my pick. It is classic and on-trend, the nickname gives it versatility, and it works well with all of your middle name choices. My second choice would be Scarlett Jean.

    You have a lovely list, and your daughter is going to have a lovely name.

    Madison (Maddie): While this is a nice name, I just don't see it as fitting with your style. It's extremely popular, being within the top 20, and being 15, I've known so many that I've lost its luster. In addition, many of the names you like are timeless, where Madison seems tied to a specific era. It's also far less distinctively feminine than the other three names you like, and is very unisex. My favorite Madison combos are Madson Joy and Madison Rose.
    Penelope (Penny): This is such a striking, beautiful name. It is quite popular, but not so much as Madison, and fits with the feminine, ethereal style you love. Penelope Jean is my favorite because Penelope is contemporary but classic, and Jean is vintage and tailored. I also adore Penelope Joy (the "o" sounds!) and Penelope Dawn!
    Scarlett: I love this name. It is so feminine, lush, and beautiful. It's also very much a classic. Scarlett Rose is my favorite combo because of the color connection between the two; "Red Rose" is such an awesome meaning!
    Celeste: This might be my favorite for you. Etheral, bright, long history of use, and striking. I like the suggestion of Celeste Dawn a lot, but I also like Celeste Joy.
    Aine (she/her)
