I added some totally new names to my list, so I was looking for some thoughts  :) Thank you!

 

Eira Josephine (prn. EYE-ra)

Helena Violet (I use the HELL-en-uh pronunciation)

Marian Ivy

Celia Linden (Linden is honoring)

 

Adrian Lark (I like this combo but just realized it's probably too unisex... wdyt? Adrian Felix is also an option)

Cole Theodore

Elliot Arthur
Percy Leander

Reid Alexander
 

Eira Josephine: When I first saw this, I saw it as ear-uh. Now that I know your pronunciation, I do see it correctly but there definitely would be a lot of issues down the road with it. I looked it up and it can also be pronounced ay-ra. So you'd get all sorts of things I think. That's enough to make me, personally, stay away from a name. However, it works so beautifully with Josephine! (7/10)

Helena Violet: I pronounce this the same way, because to me it's the only way that makes sense, but I can't say for sure if you'd struggle with people pronouncing this incorrectly too. I think it pairs really well with Violet. (8/10)

Marian Ivy: I don't really care for either of these names very much but Ivy makes a great middle and the two work well together. (7/10)

Celia Linden: Linden being an honor name does make it even better but I don't think Linden is bad even if it wasn't an honor name. Celia is a solid name. I'm sure some wouldn't like the -lia Lin- pairing but I don't mind it. (9/10)
 

Adrian Lark: I don't know much about the name Lark but the pairing of the two doesn't scream unisex to me. To me, Adrian is masculine and Adrienne is feminine and they have a slight pronunciation difference. Adrian on a girl is just a boy name on a girl imo. I think Adrian Lark is just fine and totally usable. However, I do love Felix. I do think Adrian Lark flows better but Adrian Felix does work too. (AL: 9/10, AF: 8/10)

Cole Theodore: I do like both of these names, a lot. But I don't think they go together really well, at least not in this order. Theodore Cole would work but I just don't think Cole Theodore flows as well. I guess the last name could make or break the combo. (9/10)

Elliot Arthur: I think Elliot is a great choice and Arthur flows with it so nicely! Great pairing! (10/10)

Percy Leander: I think Percy is a great choice, though I almost think it's better as a nickname. I do like the Percy Lee- sound but I don't think Leander really works with Percy. It's an alright combo, I'd consider another Lee- name though. (8/10)

Reid Alexander: Reid is an alright name, I don't really have an opinion on it one way or another. I think it would work well with the other names on your list (as siblings). Alexander is a great middle with it, flows well and makes a strong sounding combo. (10/10)

boys:
harlow elijah
toby vincent

girls:
emilia elodie “em”
dinah melanie
holliday hazel “holly”
florence ruby “flo”

 

Harlow Elijah: I'm not against the name Harlow, I think it's a fine name. However, it does give off more of a girl vibe for me. I'm not sure I can picture a little boy named Harlow unless his nickname was Harley or maybe just his full name. Elijah is a great name and a great middle. It works okay with Harlow. (6/10)

Toby Vincent: Love both of these names! I prefer using a longer name like Tobias and going by Toby but it could stand alone. Vincent is such a handsome middle name! I do think Tobias Vincent would flow better as well because Toby Vincent does feel a little off to me. (9/10)

Emilia Elodie: Emilia is a fine name, and Em is an adorable nickname, I'd even consider Millie too. I do think it'll get mistaken for Amelia a lot though, or spelled Emelia, just because of the similarity in sound. I don't typically care for alliteration names too much but Elodie is okay with it, doesn't come off to 'alliteration-y'. However, it is a little L heavy. (8/10)

Dinah Melanie: I wouldn't be sure how to pronounce this to be honest. Dine-uh like dime or more like dean-uh? Names that cause pronunciation issues make me hesitate tbh. I feel like this combo is just missing a little something, another sound of some sort. It just feels off. (6/10)

Holliday Hazel: I love Holiday with the nickname Holly, I think it's amazing. However, I'd spell Holiday correctly. Holliday just looks, not great. Holiday can still give you Holly even though it's only one L. Again, not big into alliteration but Holiday and Hazel do work okay together. (7/10, 9/10 for Holiday spelling)

Florence Ruby: I'm not a huge fan of Florence and would personally prefer Ruby Florence but I think Florence Ruby works well together and makes a great combo. Flo is an adorable nickname too! (9/10)

Cathleen Michelle

Cathleen Danielle

Cathleen Rebecca

Cathleen Cynthia

Cathleen Gretta

 

(Cathleen is interchangeable with Kathleen)

Cathleen is a great name. I personally prefer the look of Kathleen but either way it's great.
With Cynthia, I would definitely go with the Kathleen spelling but that's just me.
From favorite to least favorite...
Michelle (8/10)
Gretta (7/10)
Cynthia (6/10)
Danielle (5/10) -too vowel heavy paired together
Rebecca (5/10) -just doesn't flow
