Help with names and pairings please!

We've got two very long short lists of names, all of which DH and I like but none in particular really sing to us to be honest and I'm also really struggling to pair first and middle names together as well as thinking through what 'goes with' our DT's names.

We have a single syllable surname beginning with M. DTs are Rosa and Lilian. We have a vague family tradition for boys having Scottish names but don't have to stick with that.

Can you help with any new ideas, pairings and which 'go with' DT's names please?

BOYS
Munro
Corin
Robert
Patrick
Thomas
Joseph
Logan
Orion
(Gus)
Samuel
(Kit)
Vaughan

GIRLS
Roberta
Jospehine
Eleanor
Iona
Cora
Luna
Casia
Grace
Ciara
Sophie
Leila
(Tessa)
Leonore
Wren

Personally, I'd miss out anything with the same initial or similar sound as your current children - can you imagine trying to shout for Leila and Lilian together, or Rosa and Joseph? I'd get tangled!

Sophie and Grace are nice but not as interesting as your other two. That probably leaves you with Iona, Ciara and Cora. How about Catriona?

For a boy, Patrick, Munro and Angus sound good.

You obviously have quite different taste to me, but out of your lists I'd choose

Logan - most of the names are ok with that for a middle name Samuel/Thomas/Patrick/Robert/Vaughan. But not others Corin/Munro/Orion/Joshua

Josephine (Josie) Grace

Thomas and Samuel for boys. Like Sophie and Cora for girls names.

Rosa, Lilian and Thomas
Rosa, Lilian and Orion

Rosa, Lilian and Eleanor (love this combination)
Rosa, Lilian and Ciara

Overall I'd choose Eleanor Grace and Thomas Munro.

Samuel Logan from your boys list
Cora Wren from your girls

How about Cordelia as a 'new' girls suggestion

I love Corin and Gus. Also adore Iona and Cora.

Thanks all, this is really helpful. I feel like we don't really have a clear 'style' of names we like which makes it a bit harder...

I think I've just fallen in love with Tessa Wren though foxato!
