What do you think of these with surname Smith? Are there any that do/don't go/you find hard to say?

Beatrice Smith
Frances Smith
Greta Smith
Talulah Smith
Maria Smith
Nancy Smith

Anything ending in an 'ess' sound is tricky because you have to force a pause (I'm sure there's a technical linguistic word for it but I can't remember it) between the two 'ess'es which is a shame because Beatrice is my favourite from that list.

Tallulah Smith or Maria Smith works best from the others IMO.

Francesca rather than Frances? That works with Smith, and she's likely to get Fran anyway.

I don't think Beatrice or Talulah go with Smith.

Maria Smith sounds nice.

Beatrice and Frances are very nice names but the s sounds run into the S of Smith. Greta is rather harsh and Nancy a bit flouncy. I quite like Tallulah.

I think Nancy goes best.

I would say Nancy too.

Beatrice and Maria are both lovely and go well with Smith smile
