Which would you keep? Which would you toss?

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] ([name_u]Josie[/name_u])
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]

Honestly, I adore them all. Italicised means I think they go best with your daughter.

I would keep:

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Zanna[/name_f])
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_u]Romy[/name_u])

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]

I changed up a few

[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f],

[name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] *

[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u]*

[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] *
[name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] ([name_f]Rose[/name_f] Muh-[name_f]REE[/name_f])*

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] *

[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] *

[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Effie[/name_f])

I love [name_f]Edie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] and [name_f]Evie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] more than [name_f]Edith[/name_f] and [name_f]Eve[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] and [name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] sound great with a sister [name_f]Nora[/name_f]. I’m new to this, so IDK how you linked all the names, but those are my favorites.

I like:

[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Bonnie[/name_f] is such a cute nn idea! Very lively.)
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] (love [name_f]Edie[/name_f])
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u]
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]

My top 5:

[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u]

Keep:

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]

Toss:
[name_u]Piper[/name_u]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f]
[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u]! But [name_f]Zanna[/name_f] isn’t my style.

[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] - exquisite
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] ([name_f]Maggie[/name_f]) - I would like it, but I think it’s a shame to abbreviate such a pretty name as [name_f]Margot[/name_f] to [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], which, quite frankly, I find reminiscent of an old farm cow.
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] - I still like [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]. [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]? not as much. It sounds like a nickname and it’s not pretty. [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], on the other hand…
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Gwen[/name_f]) - [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f] are nice. I don’t love [name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f]. It reminds me of [name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] Paltrow, whom people will probably think you’re naming your daughter after. If you want NN [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], use [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] or [name_f]Gwendoline[/name_f].
[name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Rose[/name_f] Muh-[name_f]REE[/name_f]) - Nice, but I think [name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f] is pretty common and unremarkable for a first name whereas [name_u]Blair[/name_u] is more interesting.
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] - I like both [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] but not together. [name_u]Piper[/name_u] is full of fire and spunk while [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] is refined and down-to-[name_f]Earth[/name_f]. They don’t match.
[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Bonnie[/name_f]) - I’ve never liked [name_f]Bronwen[/name_f]. It’s not pretty. Personal preference.
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Effie[/name_f]) - [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is nice, so I don’t see the necessity of [name_f]Effie[/name_f].
[name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] ([name_f]Edie[/name_f]) - [name_f]Edith[/name_f] is a little old-fashioned. It’s nicer than [name_f]Edie[/name_f].
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Zanna[/name_f]) - Very pretty. Personally I like [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u], and like I said, I urge you to use [name_u]Blair[/name_u] as a first name.
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] ([name_f]Evie[/name_f]) - [name_f]Eve[/name_f] is perfectly pretty and sweet without the juvenile addition of the “ee” sound on the end.
[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] - Very nice. [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is just a little better imo.
[name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] - [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is a favorite of mine. Not much I can say for [name_f]Greta[/name_f].
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_u]Romy[/name_u]) - Very classy. I like it. I don’t like [name_u]Romy[/name_u]. I don’t really like any of these nicknames; I’m not a believer in nicknames in general. [name_f]Ramona[/name_f] is unexpected and feminine and vintage and rolls off the tongue while [name_u]Romy[/name_u] sounds sort of boyish and made-up. If you must use a nickname use [name_f]Mona[/name_f].
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] ([name_u]Josie[/name_u]) - Pretty.
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] - Great
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] Denna or [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u] ([name_f]Libby[/name_f]) - nms
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] - nms at all. [name_f]Mary[/name_f] is too [name_m]Christian[/name_m] for me, haha

I’m not big on this style myself, but to give my two cents…

Top five:
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Libby[/name_f]’ [name_u]Wren[/name_u] (definitely my favourite of the bunch, by far)
[name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] (fantastic flow)
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Effie[/name_f]’ [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]

Bottom five:
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] (doesn’t flow too well at all)
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] Denna (not really sure what Denna is - feels like [name_u]Dani[/name_u] and [name_f]Jenna[/name_f] combined. I dislike it)
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] (something about this I just find very bland. I feel like it needs more. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] or [name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Annabel[/name_f]…something with a bit more interest)

For [name_f]Nora[/name_f]'s sister (I adore the name [name_f]Nora[/name_f]!) I would go for:
[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] ([name_f]Maggie[/name_f])
[name_f]Gwyneth[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Gwen[/name_f])
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Effie[/name_f])
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] ([name_f]Evie[/name_f])
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] ([name_u]Josie[/name_u])

I adore your name taste!

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Rose[/name_f] Muh-[name_f]REE[/name_f])
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ([name_f]Effie[/name_f])
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Zanna[/name_f])
[name_f]Greta[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] ([name_u]Josie[/name_u])
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] Denna or [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u] ([name_f]Libby[/name_f])
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]

Like

[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] “[name_f]Maggie[/name_f]” (Prefer [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] as a nn for [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f])
[name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] “[name_f]Edie[/name_f]” (Prefer [name_f]Edie[/name_f] as a nn for [name_f]Elodie[/name_f])

[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Eve[/name_f]
[name_f]Elisa[/name_f] (Not [name_f]Elise[/name_f])

Keep:

[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] ([name_f]Maggie[/name_f] doesn’t really make sense as a nn)

Consider whether you prefer [name_f]Edith[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] or [name_f]Eve[/name_f] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f], since you can’t have an [name_f]Edie[/name_f] and an [name_f]Evie[/name_f].
