    I love Lavender, it’s the highest on my list for mn, and Lavender Wren is adorable. The only thing that makes me hesitant about using Lavender as a fn personally is the first syllable, “Lav”, possibly evoking lavatory. But if that does not bother you, I think it’s beautiful and I’d love to see it used.

    That said, Valentine is a gorgeous name and also on my list. Again, I like it with Wren. Yes it’s more daring than Eliza, but that’s why I like it. Imo Eliza sort of diminishes the punch that Wren packs with either two names. Nothing wrong with it really, if “normalizing” it is what you’re seeking. But Wren is really amazing and adds some balance itself, being short and sweet, while also evocative.

    I'm so torn between Valentine Eliza and Valentine Wren! I think I'd personally go with Eliza but you can't go wrong

    I agree with pp that Wren adds something special to the names, unexpected, and as that is my style, I prefer it to Eliza as the middle name. Also, I'm not as big of a fan of Eliza as a middle name because at that point I would just put Elizabeth there. I think Valentine Wren is my favorite, but I do definitely like Lavender Wren.

    My favorite is Lavender Eliza, although I would prefer (and adore) Eliza Lavender.
