Need help with spelling and middle names

1. I love the mame Regan (ray-gan) for a girl but not sure if I should spell it Regan or Raegan. I usually don't like incorrect spellings with names but I'm worried people would pronounce her name as ree-gan. So should I just leave it as Regan or spell it Raegan? By the way, I don't like the Reagan spelling or any other spelling so please don't suggest that.

2. I also need middle names for Regan (or Raegan) and Willow.

Which one/s sound best out of these:

Regan/Raegan Rose
Regan/Raegan Sophia
Regan/Raegan Isobel
Regan/Raegan Elisabeth
Regan/Raegan Frances
Regan/Raegan June
Regan/Raegan Willow
Regan/Raegan Zara
Regan/Raegan Leigh
Regan/Raegan Elise
Regan/Raegan Leonie (Leonie is my grandmother's name)
Regan/Raegan Samantha

Willow Frances
Willow Leonie
Willow Camille
Willow June
Willow Zara
Willow Regan/Raegan
Willow Samantha
Willow Elisabeth
Willow Elise
Willow Rose
Willow Renae (Renae is my sister's name)
Willow Isobel

Thanks in advance.

I would stick with Regan. I like that spelling better. I also like Regan Elisabeth and Willow Camille

Is it after the evil 'King Lear' character or the American president (though he was Reagan, not Raegan)?

Personally I think Regan looks slightly better, so I'd go with that (or just find a better name. You've got plenty of nice ones in the middle... why not use Frances or Samantha or Rose instead of using them as middle names for a silly, trendy name?

Regan Sophia is my vote. Also Willow Rose. They're so cute!

And 'cute' is such a good quality in a name.

I would go with Reagan Elizabeth and Willow Samantha

Don't go with Willow Camille, unless you are a fan of Willow Smith.. Her full name is Willow Camille Smith..

And spell Elizabeth with Z, it's easier that way

I like Regan Leigh and Camille Willow rather than Willow Camille. Camille is a beautiful first name. I can see why you prefer Raegan over Reagan, as her nickname could end up being "Rae". Whereas the spelling "Reagan" would not be spelling Rae correctly, it would look more like either a "Ree" sound or a "Ree-ah" sound, like Rea Pearlman, the actress. I like plain "Regan" the best as far as spelling goes.
