Which of these combos is the best?

Which of these is your favorite? Which should I drop? What kind of impression do you get? They are just ideas right now, feel free to be honest. Thanks, Berries :slight_smile:

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name]

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name]

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name]

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name]

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name]

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name]

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name]

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name]

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name] - looks like “Is mean” or “Is men”. Too much teasing potential. Maybe [name]Esme[/name]? [name]Imogen[/name]? I like [name]Coralie[/name]. Maybe you’d also like [name]Coraline[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Coral[/name], [name]Cora[/name], [name]Cara[/name].

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name] - I don’t like this. I’d prefer [name]Georgia[/name].

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name] - I’m sorry, I don’t like this either! It sounds awkward, and I don’t like the smoosh of [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Anne[/name] (though both are great names, especially if you’re honouring someone…unless [name]Ruthanne[/name] IS the person you’re honouring!)

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] - what flavour is [name]Margaret[/name]? [name]Maple[/name]. I love [name]Margaret[/name] (such a classic that gives such adorable nicknames as [name]Maggie[/name] and [name]Maisie[/name]). I’d prefer [name]Mabel[/name] to [name]Maple[/name]. Or, if you’re into trees, [name]Rowan[/name] or [name]Hazel[/name] or [name]Juniper[/name] or [name]Willow[/name] or [name]Magnolia[/name].

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name] - At first I saw [name]Ella[/name] Heroine. I’d love [name]Annora[/name] or [name]Honora[/name] in the middle instead. [name]Eila[/name] is pretty, though I’m not 100% sure of the pronunciation.

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] - very biblical, but flows well. [name]Margaret[/name] or [name]Magnolia[/name] could work here too. I like [name]Ruth[/name] much better on it’s own (as opposed to [name]Ruthanne[/name]).

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name] - no clue on pronunciation here.

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name] - [name]Henrietta[/name] is cute. You might also like [name]Harriet[/name].

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name] - [name]Vera[/name] is one of my favourites. An underused classic. Cool middle! All together, it flows well.

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name] - [name]Poppy[/name] always sounds more like a name for a grandpa, though it is cute. This name flows well, and [name]Karine[/name] is pretty. Maybe you’d like [name]Penny[/name] or [name]Petal[/name]?

Individually, these names are my favourites: [name]Coralie[/name], [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Ruth[/name], [name]Vera[/name] and [name]Karine[/name]. My favourite combinations are [name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name] and [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name]. [name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] works very well too.

[name]EDIT[/name]: [name]Just[/name] looked up the pronunciation of [name]Eila[/name] - pretty! (I understand it’s the same as [name]Isla[/name].) I really like that combination now too. Great choice!!

Anyone else?

My favorites are [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name] and [name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name]. My least fave is [name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name] because I have NO idea how to pronounce it! God luck! :slight_smile:

For some reason, [name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] really stands out for me. I actually really like the alliteration, but it may not be substantive enough when compared with your other names. [name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name], [name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name], and [name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name] are beautiful! What fun!

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name]-I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Coralie[/name], maybe change to [name]Coralie[/name] [name]Ismene[/name]?

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name]-Keep

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name]-I don’t like [name]Ruthanne[/name] paired with [name]Ione[/name] but I [name]ADORE[/name] [name]Ione[/name]. Perhapes [name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] and save [name]Anne[/name] for somewhere else?

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]-Keep

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name]-Keep

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]-I like it but it seems bland compared to your other choices so discard

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name]-Keep

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name]-Keep

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name]-Keep

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name]-Discard. [name]Poppy[/name] has caught on in [name]England[/name] and probably soon in the U.S. and the ‘British Invasion Part 2’ heats up

Thanks for the feedback! I really really appreciate it.

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name] is pronounced “Eye-Oh-[name]Lynn[/name] Low-Ar”

[name]Eila[/name] is “Eye-La”

[name]Ione[/name] is “ee-Oh-Nee” or “Eye-Oh-Nee”

[name]Io[/name] is “Eye-Oh”

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]. I almost did this as [name]Margaret[/name] is a huge family name, but it’s actually too common in my immediate family right now.

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name] - [name]Ismene[/name] = the soft, logical and more cool headed of Odepus daughters. [name]Love[/name] the name. I can see how “Is meanie” could come from that but I really love the name regardless. [name]Coralie[/name] = some tv show had [name]Coralie[/name] was a crazy Vampire. I still like the name though. [name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name] is a beautiful combo.

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name] - [name]Georgina[/name] and [name]Yvaine[/name] are both nms.

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name] - [name]Ione[/name] is pretty and interesting. [name]Ruthanne[/name] is pretty but smush-namey and nms. The combo is interesting but maybe difficult to wear because both names are very particular.

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] - [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Maple[/name] sounds like a comic book hero (not sure what her super power would be though). [name]Maple[/name] and [name]Margaret[/name] are both nms.

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name] - [name]Eila[/name] is a nice variation of [name]Ilsa[/name]. Really like it. [name]Honorine[/name] nms would prefer [name]Honor[/name]. [name]Eila[/name] [name]Honor[/name] is intriguing.

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] - very biblical. [name]Magdalen[/name] reminds me of [name]Mary[/name] [name]Magdalen[/name] and I can never get over the wanton women image. I like [name]Ruth[/name].

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name] - Looks very feminine. [name]Iolyn[/name] however is a derivative of a masculin Welsh name meaning handsome gentleman. Not my favorite combination for a girl.

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name] - I think the difference between name lengths look a little weird - but I love both. [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Iolanthe[/name] seems like a better combo to me.

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name] - both names are nms.

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name] - [name]Poppy[/name] is cute and soft while [name]Karine[/name] seems a little harsher ([name]Karine[/name] is also nms). Combo is not my favorite.

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name]- Drop. I don’t know how to say [name]Ismene[/name], but my instict in “Iz-mean.” [name]Coralie[/name] is nice enough, but I prefer [name]Cora[/name].

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name]- Drop. If it’s “Geor-geena Ee-vain” I hear too many ee sounds. [name]Georgina[/name] [name]Belle[/name] or [name]Cosette[/name] might be nice.

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name]- Drop. I like [name]Ione[/name], but can’t stand [name]Ruthanne[/name]. [name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] or [name]Ione[/name] [name]Anne[/name] would be nice.

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]- Drop. I’ve never been a a fan of alliteration. [name]Greta[/name] [name]Maple[/name] is adorable.

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name]- Keep. I like [name]Eila[/name] as an alternative to [name]Isla[/name], though I can’t get my head around [name]Honorine[/name]. [name]Honora[/name]?

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]- Drop. Very Biblical. [name]Magda[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] would be short and sweet.

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name]- Drop. I don’t like either, especially together.

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name]- Keep. [name]Love[/name] [name]Henrietta[/name], hate [name]Io[/name]. [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Margot[/name] is my combo. That would be sweet.

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name]- Keep. [name]Vera[/name] is nice, not sure what to think of [name]Zephyrine[/name].

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name]- Keep. [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name] is nice, though I’d love [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Catherine[/name].

I hope I wasn’t too harsh!

  • [name]Athena[/name]

[name]Ismene[/name] [name]Coralie[/name]- Not too sure about [name]Ismene[/name], but I do like [name]Coralie[/name].

[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Yvaine[/name]- [name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Georgina[/name]. [name]Georgia[/name] sounds better and [name]Yvaine[/name] is a bit much.

[name]Ione[/name] [name]Ruthanne[/name]- [name]Ione[/name] is kind of cute, but don’t really like the mash of [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Anne[/name].

[name]Maple[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]- Seriously don’t like [name]Maple[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] though.

[name]Eila[/name] [name]Honorine[/name]- I love [name]Eila[/name] but [name]Honorine[/name] sounds a bit like a mash up of [name]Honor[/name] and Heroin.

[name]Magdalen[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]- [name]Magdalen[/name] sounds a bit too old fashioned for me. You could always use [name]Magnolia[/name] instead. Magna [name]Ruth[/name] sounds cute.

[name]Iolyn[/name] [name]Loire[/name]- Can’t pronounce either of them.

[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Io[/name]- [name]Henrietta[/name] should just stay as [name]Henry[/name]. I can’t ever imagine naming a child [name]Henrietta[/name]. [name]Io[/name] sounds made up.

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Zephyrine[/name]- [name]Vera[/name]'s cute and even though I wouldn’t use [name]Zephyrine[/name] as a first name, the two sound good together.

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Karine[/name]- I like both, especially [name]Karine[/name], just not sure if I like them together. [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Caitlin[/name] sounds good too.

Sorry if I was a little harsh on the opinions,
