Haha, that's a compliment. I love Beatrix Potter and some of the lovely names she uses!

They're OK if you're giving birth to a hedgehog I guess...Ouch... :omg:

I would definitely do two seeing as you've given your first daughter two, that way there can be no issues and they can always drop one themselves when they are older if they want to.

My first thought was Winifred Thomasina Eve but Maeve works nicely too.

I much prefer the flow of Winifred Maeve/Eve Thomasina.

Winifred THomasina Eve is quite cute too.

I don't want a 'filler' for a second middle name, so I don't want to just go with a Mae/Rose/Grace blah, but Eve is quite pretty.

I have two middle names and I’ll be honest - it was always a pain. I was always insistent I would give my kids only one.

One middle or two? -the latter if I had to decide, but whatever you feel best about will be right.
As many have said they are three beautiful names OP and I  just had to add how much I love Thomasina.

I’m not a huge fan of 2 middle names. Her chosen name is a big strong, powerful one and I think adding a 3rd detracts a bit from that. Also the third name usually gets dropped off forms etc so it’s really just a pain,

I have 2, DH has 2, mine aren’t even long (4 in first name, 3 in second, 5 in 3rd) and they still never fit in forms. I also feel like I cannot opt to use both our surnames as 5 names would be ridiculous. None of our 3 children have 2 middle names

Both of mine have two middle names and aside from an extra few seconds when filling out forms (which I’ve never found to be a huge inconvenience) it’s no bother at all. Your names are lovely.

I like the idea of 2 middle names because I just love names.

Winifred Thomasina Maeve works really well. I love Thomasina and all the Thomas group of names. I prefer it over Winifred for a first name, though realise it's not usable in your case. Thomasina and Maeve go together really well.

Winifred Thomasina is already one distinctive name. I wouldn’t add more.

That was Mrs Tiggywinkle. Thomasina was a mouse ;)

It could be worse FGM- she isn’t going with Flopsy.

My 3 kids have all got 2 middle names. I’ve never had any trouble with forms.

I like your name choices.
