Amalia Eleonora and Pihla Saima Matilda are lovely. I also like Lea Vellamo - it's a bit mismatched combo, but the simpleness of Lea compliments the more romantic Vellamo.I can't understand Ellen Helen's parents. Even if we ignore that they are basically the same name, WHY do these parents want to give their child a rhyming name???? I have a rhyming name myself (and I have been so annoyed because of it!) but at least my first and middle name aren't related.

Ellen and Helen don’t rhyme in Swedish (and I don’t think they do in Finnish either). The e:s in Helen are long, so more like hee-lee-n.

I love Iris Elisabet! Lea Vellamo is nice as well.

Einar is a nice name: not a one I would necessarily use myself, but it doesn't offend me in any way. It seems that this Einar's father has Fenno-Swedish or otherwise Scandinavian background (based on the name Lennart): otherwise I would have been a bit surprised that they didn't use the more Finnish form Einari (

Lea Vellamo, Iris Elisabet, Amalia Eleonora, and Axel Emil are very pretty! I'm a bit less convinced by Line Linnea and Ellen Helen though.

Yes, I was flabbergasted by Line Linnea and Ellen Helen: didn't the parents notice how similar names they had picked? Especially Ellen Helen annoys me since Ellen is basically another form of Helen...
