Now, Pick apart my combos!

I think I have narrowed my list enough to start forming combos. So, tell me what you think.

[name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]/[name]Florence[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]/[name]Cosette[/name] (maybe too much alliteration?)
[name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Ruby[/name]

You can mix the middle names around if you think they sound better another way.

I like [name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name] best

I love [name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name], [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name], [name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name] and [name]Alys[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]. I have to say - [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name] is wonderful, though I still question how well it ages. [name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] is my second favorite.

[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name] is just [name]WAY[/name] masculine seeing as [name]Frances[/name] sounds exactly like [name]Francis[/name] and that is masculine, so adding it to [name]Sawyer[/name] to it just makes it way over the top, [name]IMO[/name].

[name]Cora[/name] or [name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] are my picks. [name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name] is too masculine. [name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] and [name]Cora[/name] [name]Cosette[/name] don’t flow well [name]IMO[/name].

See, [name]Frances[/name] is a family name and they are all women so I guess I just never imagined [name]Francis[/name] as a male name. I actually think one of my great aunt’s named [name]Frances[/name] spells her name [name]Francis[/name]. Hmm.

[name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - thumbs up.
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - [name]Sawyer[/name] is nms. I think with the sound of [name]Frances[/name] being able to go in both directions the unisex [name]Sawyer[/name] makes the whole thing unisex. I think a more feminine name to pair with [name]Frances[/name] would be preferable.
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]/[name]Florence[/name] - I like [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]. Probably my favorite on your list. [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Florence[/name] sounds a bit fussy but would depend on your last nm.
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]/[name]Cosette[/name] (maybe too much alliteration?) - [name]Cora[/name] [name]Cosette[/name] is indeed too much alliteration. [name]Cora[/name] is nms. [name]How[/name] about [name]Cosette[/name] [name]Frances[/name]?
[name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Ruby[/name] - [name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] I like. Specially with the less common Welsh spelling I think the more traditional [name]Eleanor[/name] balances [name]Alys[/name] out well. [name]Alys[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] has too many y’s for my liking.

As a sib-set with [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Jane[/name] I like [name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] the best. Actually I think it would make a beautiful sib-set.

I do like [name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] a lot. Our last name starts with [name]Em[/name]- would it be weird to have an E middle name?

[name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - Like it a lot
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Sawyer[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]/[name]Florence[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Indigo[/name]; like [name]Alys[/name] and [name]Florence[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]/[name]Cosette[/name] (maybe too much alliteration?) - Like [name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]; not sure about [name]Cosette[/name]
[name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Ruby[/name] - Like [name]Alys[/name] and [name]Eleanor[/name] seperately lot but not together. Not a fan of [name]Ruby[/name]

[name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - So cute! It is the perfect balance between cute and sophisticated :slight_smile:
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name]- This is very masculine to me. [name]Rowan[/name] works perfectly on both genders to me but [name]Sawyer[/name] is strictly boy to me
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]/[name]Florence[/name] - I hate [name]Florence[/name] but [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name] is cute, I really love [name]Indigo[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]/[name]Cosette[/name] (maybe too much alliteration?) - [name]Cora[/name] [name]Cosette[/name] is too much alliteration for me, I like [name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name] well enough
[name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Ruby[/name] - I love both of these. So cute!

I really like the flow of indigo [name]Florence[/name].

[name]Lola[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - [name]Lola[/name] is too nicknamey too me. [name]Frances[/name] is great in the middle position.
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - Cute! But [name]Sawyer[/name] too cutesy? I like how [name]Frances[/name] balances it out.
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name]/[name]Florence[/name] - [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alys[/name] is much better. I prefer other [name]Indy[/name] names over [name]Indigo[/name].
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name]/[name]Cosette[/name] (maybe too much alliteration?) - [name]Cora[/name] [name]Frances[/name] is better. Not a fan of [name]Cosette[/name].
[name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Ruby[/name] - I don’t really like either combo…both combos’ flows are a bit off to me.

I think [name]Alys[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Emerson[/name] ([name]Em[/name]-last name filler) sounds nice. AEE initials don’t bother me at all.

Maybe it’s not the E’s throwing me off… something about the syllabic flow. I don’t know. We probably will not use [name]Eleanor[/name] anyway, I would really have to fight for it… my husband thinks it’s boring and fussy.
