Lily Sofia is stunning! If the 2-2 isn't too jarring, I think that's a wonderful choice.

Don't love Hunter, but I really like Raphael and the combo is good. Xavier Heath is great too

Lily Sofia is 2-3 - in my accent at least?

I agree otherwise. I love Xavier Heath and would put up with Hunter out of love for Raphael.

Lily Sofia is really, really pretty.

Ah yes, sorry - I meant a 2-2 with the surname! I think sometimes it's fine, other times it sounds odd, depending on the name of course.

You have my two favourite names in the mix there - if I was ever going to have twins (which could only happen in my dreams!) they would be Sofia and Rafael.

So, I'd use these as first names, they are lovely.
