Esther Mallory or Esther Quinn are my favourites. I'm not keen on having the same sounding endings to names (like Esther Theodora), and prefer first and middle names to have different numbers of syllables smile

Love the name Esther. I had a very inspirational auntie with that name and often regret not using it for my DD.
Out of your list I like;
Esther Mallory
Esther Tansy

How about;
Esther Lucy
Esther Harriet
Esther Sylvie
Esther Caroline

Also, instead of Esther Bea, I like Esther Beatrix

Lily -- too like Easter lily
Rose -- The Rs run into each other and the combination sounds like a chemical, or dextrose...
Willow -- Nice
Bea -- Sounds like 'disturb ya'
Topsy -- Dreadful
Tansy -- ok
Theodora -- very nice
Isabella -- very nice
Quinn -- hate Irish surnames used as names
Mallory -- another surname -- too unlike the Biblical name Esther
Eliza -- very nice - fits as to Biblical origin and slightly old fashioned vibe.

I would choose Esther Eliza.
Second choices -- Theodora and Isabella.
Then -- Willow, followed by Tansy, both nature inspired.

Esther Jane? I believe in gut feelings and it came to meas soon as I saw the title of the thread!

What are your family names? I think middle names should always have some connection to a family name.

Topsy is terrible. You can cross that one off straight away. And Rose way too popular as a middle name unless it is a family name.

Trust me family names are not an option. Even my mother if she was still alive would not want her name carried down the generations smile

I know an Esther, middle name Ruth.
Both biblical names and they roll together nicely so are easy to pronounce.
