I voted for [name]Elinor[/name] [name]June[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kate[/name], but I prefer [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]June[/name] to your two options. I don’t see how [name]Adeline[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] are similar, and [name]Adeline[/name] is so pretty!
[name]Lilla[/name], [name]Vivienne[/name] and… I love [name]Scarlett[/name], [name]Tess[/name], and [name]Charlotte[/name] way more than [name]Elinor[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name]. But with your 1 syllable middle names, I would change [name]Tess[/name] to [name]Tessa[/name], just so it has a longer sound .
[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Mae[/name] or [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Faye[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]June[/name]

We feel like [name]Vivienne[/name] and [name]Adeline[/name], and all the names on that list, have a distinct French feel while [name]Lilla[/name] does not so while we love them I think [name]Lilla[/name] would be left out. We also had originally picked [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]June[/name] but decided to change the spelling to reflect how we pronounce it [name]El[/name]-i-nor not [name]El[/name]-uh-nor, even though it doesn’t look as pretty with [name]June[/name]. Still working out the kinks with that one, maybe a new middle name.

I prefer [name]Elinor[/name]/[name]Eleanor[/name] over [name]Penelope[/name]. [name]Penelope[/name] is fun and quirky, but it doesn’t feel as elegant or beautiful as [name]Elinor[/name]/[name]Eleanor[/name]. (I prefer the [name]Eleanor[/name] spelling.) [name]Elinor[/name] [name]June[/name] is lovely!

[name]Lovely[/name] names! I voted [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kate[/name], but I think [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lark[/name] would have serious wow factor.

I like [name]Elinor[/name] best with your other two girls. [name]Elinor[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is my favorite, but [name]Elinor[/name] [name]June[/name] is lovely too.

Thanks so much for the input. DH and I talked and the names are:

[name]Lilla[/name] [name]Clare[/name], [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name], [name]Elinor[/name] [name]June[/name], [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kate[/name], [name]Rufus[/name] [name]Graham[/name], [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] and [name]Simon[/name] [name]Jules[/name]

We love [name]Elinor[/name] [name]June[/name] we like how this one reflects the way we pronounce it
We keep coming back to [name]Penelope[/name], I just swoon every time I see it. Also over the years we have always paired a name ending in the ee sound with [name]Kate[/name], we just like the combo.

Thanks again your question and thoughts help us really see what we liked about each name or what we didn’t
