Names for DD2 - any others I might like?

We are expecting DD2 early next year and are stuck on names. DD1 is a Hermione and we have a double barrel surname (relatively short one). I think that DD2 needs a name to match up to that of her sister as something very simple may not work with the 4 syllable Hermione very well, she doesn't go by a nickname really as yet.

The list so far we both 'like' but not sure if we 'love' is:

Eden (is it strong enough 'proper sounding' name - better as middle name?)
Robyn (like this but does it go with Hermione?)
Frederica (will be Freddie, probably our favourite so far)
Francesca (Like it but not sure if it's a bit popular)
Georgina (will be George)
Harriet (will be two H's together then so not sure..but do like Hattie a lot)
Penelope (DH loves this, will be Penny, I am not sure but it does go with Hermione nicely)

Does anyone have any more suggestions of names I might like? We have also considered Vivienne, Francine, Jeannie, Sienna but DH doesn't like any of those.

Thanks

Another option I forgot to mention was

Zoe

Have a feeling it doesn't really work with Hermione though as is so much shorter..any thoughts?

Thanks

I prefer Federica to Frederica. I think that and Francesa work.

I think Zoe goes really well too.

I love Mariella too but I have a close family member called Ella and worry people might shorten it to that, but I suppose it could be Mari instead which is cute.

From your original list, I love Frederica & Penelope with Hermione, especially Penelope.

Love Marianne & Mariella, too - beautiful names.
