I know you weren't asking for this combination but Olivia Alice rolls beautifully off the tongue.

Oh I have trouble choosing between Alice and Violet, they are both beautiful names.

IMO Violet works slightly better with Olivia than Alice does so it’s Violet for me.

You may already know, but Alice + Olivia is a popular brand of clothing. They make really nice things! But if you’re looking to avoid the association with an established brand name, then it’s something to be aware of.

I think Alice goes nicely as a sister for Phoebe. Would prefer Alice Violet over Alice Olivia though.

I think of the everlasting gum ;)

My preference is Violet. It's a beautiful flower and name.

Out of the names you have listed I prefer Olivia Alice too, even though I am a huge fan of Olivia, I think it sounds lovely with Alice
