Identical twin girls

We need help naming our identical twins we are expecting this fall. We have one daughter already whose name is Cecilia. We like European, feminine and romantic names. We like Vera, but are not set on it. Please help with some twin name combos!

I love the name Vera. It is timeless and sweet.

What are you going for with the combos? Are you thinking more matchy-matchy, pretty together but unrelated, or somewhere in between?  

A "few" (I thought of more than expected) ideas that can be combined as you please: Antonia, Alina, Aria, Anya, Annika, Annaliese/a, Anastasia, Ana, Bianca, Bria, Camila, Carla, Candace, Carlotta, Catalina, Carina, Daria, Diana, Davina, Elisa, Emilia, Eva, Evelina, Eveline, Francesca, Fiona, Flavia, Frida, Fabiola, Gianna, Giovanna, Giulia/na, Genevieve, Guinevere, Giuseppina, Hannelore, Ina, Isadora, Isabella, Isabel, Imogen, Josefa, Josephine/a, Julia/na, Jamila, Katrina, Katarina, Katharina, Liana, Liliana, Lucia/na, Ludmila, Lavinia, Mattea, Maria/na, Magdalene/a, Maddalena, Mina, Meta, Mona, Nina, Natasha, Nadia, Nola, Penelope, Philomena, Pia, Philippa, Pippa, Priscilla, Rosalind, Rosalina, Rosabella, Rosa, Rona, Risa, Sabina, Sofia, Stefania, Selena, Sylvia, Theresa, Thea, Theodora, Viviana, Valentina, Wilfreda, Xenia, Yasmina, Zara, Zena, Zola

Vera is pretty. So is Verity.

Felicity ( but not as a twin with Verity), Alicia, Rosalind, Sylvia, Helen, Livia, Beatrice, and Marin all sound nice with Cecelia and Vera. Nothing is jarringly different but they are all individual girls and women.

I once saw the suggestion of Daphne and Laurel (Daphne means laurel), and I thought they were wonderfully feminine and romantic. :)

Firstly, congrats! I love your older daughter's name and love Vera, as well. 

 

I don't know what kind of vibe you are going for... But just my two cents here: please don't do anything matchy-matchy for twins just because they are twins. My husband is an identical twin, and I can tell you from experience that you are already lumped together too often as one person and not your own individual... Giving them separate names at least gives some sense of their own identity. I also find it is a good general rule to say "would I do this for two babies born separately?" 

ANYWAY, stepping down off of that... I am certainly not an expert in where names come from, so I don't know that these are very "European" necessarily, but some suggestions:

 

Ivy

Daniella

Leona

Eloise

Nina

Louisa

Clara

Diana

Vera and Nora go together well. How about Natalia and Lydia?
