We have to bear in mind our local accent (Medway)....but...
1) Alice Liberty
or...
2) Elodie Isla

I suppose also derivations of these i.e. Liberty Isla, or Elodie Alice might work too, whaddya think?

Don't do Liberty Isla it is to close to Liberty Isle

I would do Elodie Alice I dont think Elodie Isla rolls very well on the tongue. and whilst I dont mind Alice it is not one I would use as a first name personally

I am obviously in a small minority because I really like Liberty. I also like Alice v much (it's my DD's middle name) and I like the combination of the two. Liberty Alice rolls off the tongue better than the other way round, but Alice is better as a first name.

I agree with Frikadellen about liberty isle.

I really like all those names.

The only vague issue might be people mishearing Elodie Isla as Ella Delilah.

Sweet names all. I like Alice Elodie best. I think Elodie is likely to get shortened to the ubiquitous Ellie.

Yika Thu 17-Jan-13 20:13:49

I think I prefer Ella Delilah. smile

Isla Liberty sounds like 'isle o liberty'.

I like Alice Elodie. Agree that Elodie will end up Ellie if it's first name.

Be aware that there can be a negative connotation with the name liberty, the phase 'taking a liberty' is quite popular amongst young people i've heard frequently it from kids as yound as 7. It would be something that I think would put me off, but i'm probably just being over cautious! Love the name Alice its just one of those were you can't go wrong :-)
