Either name neutral or good to you?

Guinevere May is absolutely beautiful.

Both lovely but slightly prefer Guinevere May

Vera Christina would be lovely.

Not sure about Guinevere, maybe it's because the "evere" is like "severe".

I like Guinevere May but I really dislike Vera Christina. VC has a beautiful flow to it, but I just don't like either individual name.

Vera Christina if you'll always use the full first name - Guinevere May is lovely but Guinevere's a bit much for everyday use IMHO, love Guin or Guinny as a nn though!

I think Vera Christina is gorgeous. Guinevere is more of an eccentric art teacher's name imo.

Vera Christina makes me think of a South American revolutionary.

Guinevere, because you can always shorten to Vera if you like.

Not sure about Guinevere May though. Guinevere may.....what? (iyswim!)
What about;
Guinevere Ruth
Guinevere Mary
Guinevere Beth
Guinevere Fleur
Guinevere Jane

Guinevere May much nicer IMHO.

Vera Christian sounds like an Africam missionary to me (which is fine if that's your cup of tea)

Guinevere is a lovely name.

Vera is still Duckworth.

Really dislike Vera, the other names are lovely.

Guinevere is lovely but how is it going to play out when yelled across a busy playground? What's the short form? It's a bit out there for my taste. Vera sounds a bit fag in the corner of your mouth and hairnet. But Christina is nice.

Love Vera Christina. Guinevere May sounds a bit wet to me.

As you like names with the "vere" or "ear" sound in, how about other names with the same sound (or similar) in them?

Verity, Veronica, Elvira, Verina, Samira, Sapphira, Virginia, Erica, Ciara, Indira, Elvira, Hera, Zahira?

I like the V.. Christina pair (like Vicky Christina Barcelona, which flowed well!), just not Vera. Viola or Verity would almost fit, or Lara, Zara, Sophia.

Guinevere to me is similar to Eugenie and Genevieve (also Gwendoline but don't like that one).

Zelda, Xanthe, Esme, Thea... Christina, sorry, probably not helping!
