What do you reckon to Tamsin as a middle name for Leonore?

I am 8 months pregnant, sex not known.

Just lately I am loving Leonore for a girl. It'd be nice to use Tamsin if we can, for family reasons.

Leonore Tamsin sounds quite nice to me, but something about a classical Greek name followed by an old Cornish nickname seems a glaring mismatch. OH says it's me, no one else would think so.

What do you think?

(PS- I am pronouncing it Le-on-or Tam-zin).

I like the combination a lot. Both lovely, unusual names, and Leonore has an
Olde Englishe feel to it imo. Not a bit incongruous.

Don't think it sounds mis-matchy. They go together.
