Need some help identifying palms

I have 3 palms that I am unsure of.. Any help identifying them would be great. I believe the small one with the dark crownshaft is a New Caledonian palm, and the single tall palm is from the Philippines, but not 100% certain. NOTE The first 2 pictures belong together, then the next 2 and the last one is  separate palm,

Here's a guess:

Dypsis pembana

Cyphophoenix nucele

Heterospathe elata

I agree with Jonathan, I was stumped on last one though. I thought ravanea glauca but looking at internet pics looks like what you said

You guys rock! I would for sure on Cyphophoenix nucele and Heterospathe elata since I found those on a list I had of palms I bought at some point, but could not identifying them once they were grown (and of course not tagged),  and very likely  Dypsis pembana for the third. I do recall they had a maroon color when they were in the juvenile stage and not trunking and that may also help in the identification.

Possibly Chrysalidocarpus cabadae rather than pembana, especially if they had some maroon colouring when younger.
