Hi there!

I really like the names you have on your short list. Madeline is probably my favorite. :) Have you tried visiting www.babynamer.com yet? The site is a great place to search for names (over 23,000 are now included). It may be a good place to search for the perfect baby name! Good luck to you.

My niece's fn is Madelyn (similar to Madeline). Her mn is Eve, which I think is just beautiful, and would go well with any of your name choices.

I just thought that Lenae would be really pretty as a mn with any of those names, too.

I like names first/middle/last names to have a variety of syllables. Your selections all have three syllables so depending on your last name I would go for a name with one or two syllables.

Then I would think about special people in my life that I would like to honor, a family member or close friend, and see how those names sound attached to each of the first names.

Another suggestion is to think of a theme name. Examples are virtues (Faith, Grace), Nature (Willow, Wren), or characters from your favourite books. Personally I would avoid contemporary celebrity names in case the person ends up becoming a bad example or gains a bad reputation in the future.

And finally, I would think of quality names. Names that mean something specific: beautiful (Belle) intellegent (Clara)
