Love the girls names! Jemima Elizabeth would be top.

Not keen on the boys name although miles is ok. They seem quite different to the girls names

Jemima is beautiful and I love the nns 'Mima' and 'Mimi'!

I have a gorgeous nephew called Miles and I adore it. It means solider - a real strong man's name!

To me, Susannah and Elizabeth are quite dated - It was a popular combo for people who are how in their 40s. Classic but a bit 'vanilla' if you know what I mean? And personally I don't think Elodie and Susannah 'go'...

Henry is great too.

Casper Henry and Jemima Elizabeth are my favourites

Miles Henry is an excellent name.

Susannah is lovely and surprisingly underused, but I think Elizabeth is a bit of a mouthful with it. Doesn't really matter much.

Susannah will only get shortened if she wants it to be. I've known lots of people with longer names who were never known by short forms. Several Elizabeths, for a start. Amandas, Margarets, Katherines. It's not inevitable.

Miles and Susannah. Definitely. They sound more classic.

Casper and Jemima seem too current.

Jemima Elizabeth is beautiful. Not keen on the others tbh, Casper reminds me of the friendly ghost & Susannah is a bit nothingy & likely to get shortened for me. But its all personal taste,go with what you love smile

Casper and Susannah. I don't like the others.

I like Casper (also Caspar) but the others are all a bit meh for me. I'm not generally into 'classic' names, they feel quite dull IMO.

Elodie is beautiful, and would go with Casper.

I've known two Susannahs, both went by their full name, both were friendly, intelligent and charming people - one an adult, one a teenager when I knew her, so I love the name.

I like Miles too, though it reminds me of a Star Trek Deep Space Nine character...
