Middle name for Sylvie

If baby #2 is a girl, she will be Sylvie. It's a family name and we love it with our daughter's name Iris. However, I'm struggling to find just the right middle name! Last name is one syllable and English, so I'll put a fake one just for comparison sake/flow. Juniper has special meaning but is our least favorite for flow. We are also open to two middle names as our daughter has two. 

Thoughts on:

Sylvie Beatrix Rourke

Sylvie Matilda Rourke

Sylvie Juniper Rourke

Other suggestions welcome!

Does the real surname begin with an R? If not, I don't see anything wrong with Juniper's flow.

Personally, I find the Sylvie Matilda rolls off my tongue in a very fluid and pleasing manner and is my favourite of those three.

Do you find that you use your older daughter's middle name(s) much in daily life? If not, there's a good chance that you won't often use the impending child's middle name either, in which case flow really isn't as important as the flow between Sylvie and the surname.

I like Juniper the best of those three. Fiona might be a nice alternative.

I think special meaning is more important than flow, so I choose Juniper.

Sylvie Matilda Beatrix - I think go with 2 middle names as your other daughter does.  I like the flow of Sylvie Matilda Beatrix
