suggestions for baby girl #2

Hi all- I'm a frequent lurker on this board and just love all the beautiful and creative names I've seen around here.

So I am coming to you for help- we just found out our second child will be another girl and I'm honestly at a loss for ideas right now.

I want something to compliment Adeline (our first daughter who also goes by Addie) and do love the older names (as well as the idea of a name that could lend well to a nick name so she won't get saddled with anything crazy my family could come up with)

We've tossed around ideas such as Stella and Evelyn but sadly they have been used by friends of mine

I'm still a fan of Amelia (Lia for a nick name) but think it might be to much with Adeline and it's not on my husbands short list that's for sure.

Anyway- just looking for ideas....what are some of your favorites?

thanks in advance!

Here are some that seem to 'fit' with Adeline (a lovely name, by the way!):


Caroline (NN Carrie or Carly) - one of my fave names
Cecelia (NN Cece)
Eleanor (NN Elle or Ellie)
Josephine (NN Jo or Josie)
Lucinda (NN Lucy)
Margaret (NN Maggie)
Matilda (NN Mattie or Tillie)
Rebecca (NN Becca or Becky)
Rosalie (NN Rose or Rosie)
Victoria (NN Vicky or Tori)
Virginia (NN Ginny)

thank you for the suggestions!
This is where I start to get tricky....see I'm a teacher and have many connections to names so it makes getting a list going harder than it looks :0)

Caroline was one on our list for Addie, just not sure if I want 2 ending in "line" have to think on it

Cecelia- never thought of Cece for a nick name...cute!

Eleanor is out as that is my niece

Lucinda is out as that is my mother in law

Josephine (and Josie) were also on the list for Addie...but I'm just not loving it this time around like I did.

Rosalie- funny I just suggested this to my husband....sadly it's out

Those are just ones I have to cut (well except Cecelia)...the rest can go into the pool :0)

thanks again!

Adeline is lovely! I probably would pass on Amelia with it, but it's also a lovely name. Other thoughts:

Moira
Genevieve
Flora
Catherine
Daphne
Louisa
Lydia
Susannah

Hi there.

I love the name Adeline! It's on my short list as well. I also love Amelia; that's my little kitty cat's name. We call her Mia, but I must say that Lia is less common.

Suggestions-

Annabel(le)/Annie-this might be too cutesy w/Addie though.

Beatrix/Trixie

Beatrice/Bess

Celia/Celie

Cecilia/Celie

Cordelia/Cora

Elizabeth/Ellie/Lily/Tess

Eloise/Ellie/Lulu

Florence/Flora/Flossie

Felicity/Fliss

Frances/Franny/Francie

Genevieve/Ginny/Gigi

Imogen/Imee

Josephine/Josie

June/Junie

Jane/Janie

Katherine/Kit/Kitty

Lillian/Lillie

Lousia/Lucy

Matilda/Milie/Maisy/Tillie

Penelope/Nellie/Polly/Penny/Poppy

Rose/Rosie

Romilly/Romy/Remy

Susanna/Susie/Sadie

Tallula/Lula

Hope this helps!

Lillian (NN Lil, Lilly)
Selena (NN Lena)
Teresa (NN Tess)

Adeline is so pretty! I have a couple of suggestions and hope you'll find something you like. Girl names are so difficult!


Adriana (if you can find a nickname different than Addie, I think it sounds nice as a sibling set and on it's own).


Charlotte (Charlie, Lola, Lottie)


Vivienne


Anneliese


Antonia (Toni)


Gabrielle (Gabby)


Penelope (Penny)


GL!

If you like the nn Lia and the name Cecilia, why not use that and give her the nn Lia? Or better yet (IMO) the name Celia, with the nn Lia? Either one fits nicely with your dd and isn't too similar, is pretty and uncommon...

thanks for all the great suggestions ladies.

It's funny to see so many of the names that were tossed around for Adeline pop up again....I'm writing them all down and just thinking on it for now. Thankfully we have awhile!
