    Default Opinions please

    So we are very close to choosing a baby name for our little girl.

    Middle names are after my grandmother who raised me and passed away last year and my MIL's name. My Grandmother Was Leisel who went by Elsie. What version of the name flows the best?

    Samantha Leisel Tracey C
    Sam Leisel Tracey C
    Samantha Elsie Tracey C
    Sam Elsie Tracey C

    we have a few back up first names just in case Sam or Samantha becomes super popular in the next few months, or a murderer is named Sam or something.

    Donna, River, Leisel or Turid

    I actually love Elsie as a first name

    Out of your 4 options, I prefer the third.

    I like option 1. The Elsie Tracy is a bit repetitive on the "ee" sound IMO.

    First option.

    I also really like Elsie as a first name.

    Of your back up first names, I'd say Leisel.

    Id pick Samantha over Sam as there will be a heap of kids both boys and girls going by Sam. People will probably always assume that Sam is a shortened version/nickname of another name as well.
    As for the middle name combination Leisel Tracey probably sounds best.
