    I prefer Emilia to Emmeline, but the nickname Milly works with both. It's not the most intuitive nickname for either name but it's not too much of a stretch either, probably works better with Emilia...

    Tilly just looks cleaner to me, the -illi- in names like Tillie, Millie, Lillie is quite difficult to read sometimes.

    Of the list in your signature, I think Alice and Madeleine would be the best options. I'd avoid another nature name for Ivy's sister as it would be a bit matchy, but other than that, familiar classic...

    Poll: I think Caitlin McGillis works fine, both names...

    I think Caitlin McGillis works fine, both names are two syllables long so neither is really more of a mouthful than the other. If you're leaning towards a Catherine variation, I'd consider what, if...

    I'd be hesitant about picking something more commonly used as a surname purely because you've got a surname more commonly used as a first name. Cory and Kyle are a little close for my liking, so Max...

    I've only ever encountered it as a surname. The nickname Bear, which a pp mentioned, is rather cute, much nicer than the rather dated Barry which I think would end up being the default for people...

    I can see how the Rayven spelling would make the nickname Ray work easier - it's not my cup of tea, but I think it works as a unisex name just fine.

    My first thought as an alternative to Madeleine was Matilda. Potential nicknames are all two syllable - Milly or Tilly plus Mattie which is very close to Maddie in many accents, which is the default...

    Key-ARR-uh - because I know someone with that name and that's the pronunciation they use. Though I could see some accents might say Key-AIR-uh.

    I love Anna Katherine, it's on my own list, and Anna Kate is darling. And as a Sophie myself, I can vouch for it being a great name to have. Genevieve is a bit more versatile in terms of nicknames...

    Yeah, a lot of those names fit into the 'vintage' category but I think those sorts of names are coming back in style. I know a Ruth and a Gary who are my age (early 20s) and there's celebs who have...

    Just what I was going to say. I think it often has an accent above the E as well, though whether that would be recorded formally I don't know.

    Some of these names aren't all that bizarre at all,...

    ELL-en-uh would be my first guess, then Ell-EN-uh (slight shift in emphasis - though I'd go for that first if it was a double N). I wouldn't go for El-AY-nuh with the double L at all.
