Narrowing India, Helen, Lazarus & Winifred

Yep, really.  We’ve got a few of each we’re both divided upon and need some help choosing the best of each set, whould you oblige? I’d appreciate the extra voice! 

 

Here’s Helen:

Helen Saffron Adele – His favorite
Helen Ursula Violet – my favorite
Helen Tilley Violet – the not so perfect compromise?

 

India’s got a longer haul, He went through all the choices we had and narrowed it to 6. I like half of them, He likes the other half!  Here:
India Rosamond Violet   (Anyone see the link here?) ;P
India Ottoline Violet    (Still looking for a home for Ottoline)
India Clementine Jane (Still wondering if I should even have this one, or should it replace Clementine India Jane, which is #3?)
India Mehetabel Jane (Just loving Mehetabel to pieces)
India Scarlett Jane (he likes India & Scarlett together, I want Jane to ground them a bit more)
India Frances Valentina

 

Lazarus is down to three, His, Mine and a possible compromise:

Lazarus Edward Reuel
Lazarus Arthur James
Lazarus William Wilder

Can you guess which one’s whose favorite?

 

And last, but not least, Winifred, she’s definitely top 10 material but we’re down to two combos:

the new:
Winifred Lily Jane  -Winifred, Auntie Lily, Grandma, Jane, Mama
Winifred Elinor Plum – again, Auntie, Cousin, Just because we like it.

 

So, care to pick & choose among these? I’d appreciate it. I’m getting tired of the back & forth!

 

As always, Thanks a million And again, Thanks for stopping by!  😀

 

Keep an eye out for Claud a bit later, too!

Helen

I’m quite enamored with Helen at the moment.  It’s a definite family name for me, I have three Aunts with the name (well, 2 Helens 1 Helena) but I prefer simple Helen to Helena these days, even. And the last Helen is on her last legs as I type this. She’s not doing well at all.

 

I think it’s brilliantly simple and beautifully strong. Helen’s warm honey to me,  and I’m liking her a whole lot. Tried my hand at combos, preliminarily anyway. Here’s what I came up with, and is now narrowed a bit:

 

Helen Saffron Adele
Helen Calliope Jane
Helen Ursula Violet
Helen Isolde Ruby
Helen Aurelia Violet
Helen Rosamond Lily
Helen Tilley Violet

 

I decided to try Saffron out with Helen because they’re almost the same color (not shade) to me, Saffron’s yellow/orange gold and Helen’s honey gold. Ursula is one I just like.  ur -SU- lah.  Primrose is just a bit of whimsy I didn’t think would hurt Helen much and I tried the familial Tilley out in full, I figure, if Leo, Simon & Josephine have a family surname in the middle, Tilley should work too.  Of course, Jane, Lily, Ruby, Violet, Marigold, Ottilie & Lucy have significance and Isolde, Camilla, Calliope, Aurelia, Plum & Adele are just ones we like.  But I figure with two family names, I can spare a bit for something we just really like!

 

 Anything jump out at you as emminently usable? Am I on the right track, at least? What do you think, anything? 

 

As always, thanks a million for stopping by!
