I'm having a hard time with girls names, and am asking for critiques & suggestions.

Winifred - my husband's absolute favourite, I go back and forth.
Irena
Honora
Taline (Ta-leen) - worry a bit about it being constantly mispronounced.
Lucille
Branwen

Branwen for me smile winifred was my great grandmothers name so i also like it, but nicknames are a bit tricky

Honor

Lucille is my favourite I think.

Taline will be misspelt and mispronounced, only go for it if that won't bother you.

Honor for me toosmile Honora sounds wrong, Lucille is 'too much', Lucy is lovely though.
Not a fan of Winifred, Irene or Taline I'm afraid.

Winifred, with the nn Freddie.

Winifred/Freddie gets my vote. Winora would be a combination of some of your possibles.

Prefer Winnie to Winnifred - my aunt's name. Guess the nickname would be Pooh, though.

Really don't like Taline - Tureen? Tallin/Tallon's nice though.
My favourites are Irena and Lucille, although if you're willing to change the spelling, I love Honoria, and Honor's nice too.

Fallon is nice - Tallon makes me think of witches finger nails
