Considering this is the second time around you'd think I'd still have names from last time
. But nope, back to square 1.
Audra or Audrey
Clementine or Calliope
Last name starts with A, two syllables. Sister to Llewelyn (nn Louise) Cate.

I like all of these
Gideon (love this)
Edith (my fave from your list)

I am sorry OP I am not fond of any from your boys. I only like Edith from the girls. Audrey is ok too. I liked it more a few years ago before it became trendy again.

From boys list I like
(I don't mind Esteban but wouldn't put it with sister Llewelyn as seems too different culturally to me)
(also like Calliope and Isolde but again to me don't feel right with Llewelyn)

William and Violet are the only ones I like

Flynn rhymes with Llewelyn so I would avoid that. Calyx is kind of cool but my first impression would be that Calyx is your daughter and Llewelyn is your son.
I like Audrey, Violet, William and Edith.

Clementine or Calliope
I don't love these names but they're the best ones with Llewelyn for me.

My favorites are William and Violet
Calyx sounds VERY similar to "Caelyx" which is a drug for breast and ovarian cancer as far as I know..

I vote Gideon and Calliope.
I tend to agree, however go with Clementine before Calliope.
Just out of curiosity, can I ask why you gave your daughter the boy's name Llewelyn, yet call her Louise? Was Llewelyn a family name you just had to use?
