These are some of my top combos. Thoughts?

Ophelia Rosamund
Lavinia Astrid
Isotta Margriet (nickname: Griet)
Cordelia Ruth
Helena Violet
Jocosa Eleanor
Cecelia Madeline
Josephine Orvokki
Eva Juliette

* Margriet is the Dutch form of Margaret.
* Orvokki: Finnish for "anemone flower".

I think they're all great, my favorites are:

Ophelia Rosamund
Isotta Margriet (though I personally prefer Margaret )
Cordelia Ruth
Helena Violet (are you saying it hel-LAY-nuh or HEL-eh-nuh?)
Cecelia Madeline (though I prefer Cecilia)
Josephine Orvokki

I don't care for Jocosa, Lavinia, Eva, or Juliette.

I love Astrid.

I think some of them seem like too much for a little baby. The only one from your list I like is Cecelia Madeline.

Thanks so far!

Niamh, I'm pronouncing Helena hel-LAY-nah.

Maybe, but a little baby grows into an adult. I think most of those will age well with her. And that's what nicknames are for of course.

You have great combos! I love your naming style While I'm personally not crazy about Ruth, Helena, Jocosa, and Eva, they work wonderfully in your combos.

This may be true, but you have to consider that a person spends most of his/her life as an adult. So a name that ages well is ideal (and i think your names qualify ). Imagine how awful it would be as 50 year old woman stuck with a cutesy name only fitting for a child Plus, as you mentioned, nicknames work well to alleviate the concern of an adult name on a young child.

I like:
Lavinia Astrid
Helena Violet
Isotta Margriet
Cecilia Madeline (the spelling Cecelia looks wrong IMO)
Eva Juliette

I like Ophelia and love Rosamund, but together they are a bit much. Orvokki is a very interesting and pretty middle name, I just don't like Josephine that much.

My favourite combo out of your list would have to be Eva Juliette. All of them are pretty but a bit too out there compared to my usual style, pretty though.

Individually i like these names from your list

Madeline
Josephine
Eva
Juliette

My favorites:
Ophelia Rosamund
Helena Violet
Cecelia Madeline (Cecelia/Cecilia Madeleine would also work well)
Eva Juliette (I prefer Juliet, but that's just a personal preference.)

I also seperately love:
Astrid
Josephine
Margaret (I don't like the pronunciation of Margriet, sorry!)

Astrid Josephine and Josephine Margaret are also favorites.
