These are the three names on our shortlist. How do you rate them? I like feminine names with a vintage vibe.

Happy to use any combination for first and middle names e.g

Alice Violet
Violet Eloise
Eloise Violet

Or even a different middle name e.g Rose, Willow, Clare

They are all lovely.

Alice is becoming a little bit common again.
I know a couple of Eloise's

Violet I haven't heard recently.

Violet Eloise or Violet Clare would be my pick.

Eloise or Violet in any combination depending on how it flows with your last name.

I don’t care for Alice and Claire is really common around me.

Easy: Alice!  Alice Violet

Love love love Alice.

Violet sounds like violent to me.

Eloise is pretty, but I know some struggle with spelling and pronunciation.

Alice Clare is wonderful.

Alice Violet.

Rose is super overused as a middle name IMO

I really like both Eloise and Alice.

Not a fan of Violet at all.

Alice and Eloise dont work as a combo though - neither Alice Eloise or Eloise Alice

My vote goes equally to Eloise Clare or Alice Clare

Eloise is my favourite girls name. I think it would be nice with a 1 or 2 syllable middle name. I like Eloise Vera.
