Unique Spelling of Classic Names? (Twin Girls)

Hello! My name is [name_f]Jennette[/name_f] and I’m welcoming twin girls into the world around the 21st of [name_u]August[/name_u]! They already have four sisters and we want to keep a similarity between them all. They all have classic names with a unique spelling, and with german origin middle names. We also want the twin’s names to have the same first letter! We wanted to have [name_m]German[/name_m] middle names because my husbands ancestry is mostly [name_m]German[/name_m] including our last name which starts with H and ends with N. We weren’t considering any E, K, A or G first names because we’ve already used them but we are open to all. Myself and my husband have common names that are spelt alternatively. [name_f]Jennette[/name_f] is my spelling of [name_f]Jeanette[/name_f] and my hubby’s is [name_m]Wiliam[/name_m], commonly spelt [name_m]William[/name_m].

Our oldest is Elyzabeth [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] (pronounced [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Anna[/name_f]-[name_u]Lee[/name_u]-Za). My great-grandmothers name was [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and she was important part of my life and I wanted to honour her with my first daughter. [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] we got just from a baby book, and I just loved the pronunciation!

Our second oldest is [name_f]Klara[/name_f] [name_f]Annika[/name_f] (pronounced [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-[name_u]Nik[/name_u]-A). I have some Russian ancestry on my mothers side so [name_f]Klara[/name_f] seemed like the perfect name! [name_f]Annika[/name_f], I also just loved the different pronunciation!

Our third is [name_f]Alyce[/name_f] [name_f]Karolina[/name_f] (pronounced [name_f]Alice[/name_f] Karo-[name_u]Lee[/name_u]-Na). We got [name_f]Alyce[/name_f] from [name_f]Alice[/name_f] in Wonderland which was a childhood favourite for myself and my hubby. [name_f]Karolina[/name_f] acknowledges an aunt named [name_f]Carolina[/name_f] on my husbands side and a cousin named [name_f]Karoline[/name_f] on my side.

Finally, our current youngest is [name_f]Grayce[/name_f] [name_f]Christiane[/name_f] (pronounced [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Christi[/name_f]-[name_m]Ah[/name_m]-Na)! My middle name is [name_f]Grace[/name_f] and so is my mothers and grandmothers, so [name_f]Grace[/name_f] is a very important family name for us! [name_f]Christiane[/name_f] is actually inspired by my mother-in-law [name_f]Christiana[/name_f]!

I look forward to your opinions and suggestions!
