    I prefer Hadley over Aylah. I also feel Hadley Florence flows better.

    I’m not usually a huge fan of surname/unisex first names but Hadley is an exception - it has a very literary feel to me as Hadley was one of Hemingway’s wives and the subject of a fictional book I read years ago based on her time with him. I also love the combination of Hadley and Florence, which seem starkly different yet, in my opinion, complement each other so well. Plus, I don’t love Ayla with an ‘h’, although without I think it’s a lovely name. Both are great choices but I’d probably go with Hadley Florence Dixon. Congratulations on the news of your little girl, I just had my first child, a girl, the week before last

    If Aylah is said how it looks (I.e. Ay-luh), then Aylah Florence is definitely my favourite.

    I prefer Hadley, but I don't really think it goes with Florence. Aylah Florence is lovely.

    Another vote for Hadley, although I agree that Aylah works well with Florence.
