Long girls name

Now we've hit 24 weeks, I'm starting to think of names. I have a few boys names I like but not any girls names. Ideally, I would like....
A long name (8-10 letters ideally) - both my DC have long names
Something not too common but something that people will recognise and probably not need help spelling.
A pretty name
Apparently my DC have posh names so would need to fit.
Am I looking for the impossible?!

Oh yes, those kinds of lines but
Elizabeth is grandmother
Dated a Joe and Phil
I hated a girl called Eve
Friend called Francesca (Cheskie)
Otherwise, exactly the sort of thing!
Will add Emmeline and Evangeline to list

Thank you!

Susanna
Clementine
Leonora ( or leonore)
Cecily ( I think of that as a long name somehow when you say it!)
Cecilia
Miriam
Theodora
Rosalind / rosamund/ Roseanna

Liking your taste in names. These, to me are strong names, without ready preconceptions attached ( eg " grace" should be a pretty . Delicate child for instance ) . But they also have a pretty, girly side too on a small person.

The only ones I can think that maybe aren't ideal are the thomasina / nigella " we wanted a boy and got a girl) sort of names , or the ultimate drippy name ( IMHO ) lettice !

Look at jane Austen. And similar books !
