I've always pronounced Emmeline like Evelyn with an M. 

Always thought Eamon was ee-mon until I actually met someone with the name. Only made me like it more!

Most of the names you listed sound good with Annelies. You could consider shortening it to Ann or Anne for more options. Violet Annelies is lovely and I don't think it clashes with Meika. 

Matilda Annelies / Matilda Ann

Ingrid Annelies / Ingrid Ann

Lydia Annelies / Lydia Ann

Tamara Annelies / Tamara Ann

Eliza Annelies / Eliza Ann

In Response to Suggestions for Girl

Lots of little Michaelas and Mackenzies running around these days. I don't know if the popularity or "trendiness" of a name bothers you at all, but it's worth a thought. Audrey and Elise are both classic and charming. I hope you and hubby reach an agreement. :)

Suggestions: Kendra (similar to Kendall but more feminine and warm), Sabrina, Allison (lots of ways to tweak the spelling, has the -son ending like Madison, can shorten it to Alis/Alice or Allie), Avery, Maeve.

Not a fan of Persy on its own, though it'd make a cute nickname for Persephone. 

Love Leonie. To me it's the French pronounciation that first comes to mind (Lay-o-NEE), but it sounds good either way.

Delphi is the most unique of the bunch, and sounds great alone or as a nickname (Delphine? Another pretty French name!)
