I've never met a single Callie :p And I agree with previous posters, I think Calista with the occasional nickname Callie is great, so if she wants to stand out she can and if she wants to blend in...
Throwing a curveball one out there I read in a book once: Millicent nn Minty.
I adore Milly, but if it's too popular for you, then it's too popular for you. Doesn't stop it being an absolutely...
My sister's on a netball team, and a lot of them go by nicknames (Beth, Bex, Vicky, Ellie, etc) when on the team, because it's just so much easier to shout "Jo!" than "Joanna!" when playing the game....
I like Leo better than Caden. Leo is a handsome classic, Caden feels more trendy to me with the popularity of Aidan and his rhymes and is more likely to have spelling problems given the number of...
'Too popular' to me, I base on how often I hear it. For example, Jessica is #4 on the 2011 UK list but I've not met a single baby Jessica, and the ones I know are more teenager age, so I'd use it...
Scarlett could use the nickname Lettie, which is close to the Lottie that she likes.
Without knowing the sister names, so discard any mentions of them:
Is Imogen the first or middle name or the sister's name? I'm a little bit confused.
Sierra - Alright. Imogen Sierra works as a combo, but it's a bit different in style to be a sister name....
I adore the nickname Annie, but Antonia wins it for me on the full name. It's just that little bit more intuitive, and the way I say Persephone, I don't hear the 'annie' bit, it's more 'oh-nee'....
Gray-um pronunciation (the only one I'm familiar with, never heard Gram ) is fine next to Hammer. I usually prefer the Graham spelling but Graham Hammer has the repetitive 'ham', so I actually like...

Absolutely. I prefer Milo as a nickname for Miles rather than as a full name as I find it too nicknamey sounding.
Alycesaundra - honouring grandmothers Alice and Sandra with a couple of tweaks 'to make it look nicer' maybe?
I don't watch Toddlers and Tiaras much, but I have seen it on occasion and am yet to...

I find it trendy, sorry. I find Eve, Eva and Evelyn vintage but Ever and Everly more modern and trendy. Was there an Evelyn or a Lee in your family tree? Maybe it was a smoosh name after two...
I prefer Esme to Julia. Esme has everything - short and sweet, girly but can also work on a tomboy. I like nn Jules but I do find Julia rather dated, and I struggle to picture it on a child.

Stefan - I like this, but I fear it will be mistaken for Steven. If you're ok putting up with that it's a good name.
Joel - I like this too, very handsome.
Jayden - Not a fan, I find it very trendy...
I'll be honest, I've got no idea who she is. I wouldn't know the names of her kids, even if I read it on Nameberry I'd forget within a week or two easily. The name isn't obscure - Vincent is a family...

Alexander - It's a bit long next to Jack and Lila. What about the nickname Xander though, if you don't like Alex.
Anthony - Nice but I agree with you about not liking Tony. I know Anthonys who go...
I have a strong dislike for the name August, even though many people on here love it. I adore Gus, but August is a month, not a name to me.
The Bree sound in names (Gabriella, Brianna, etc) is...

Ava - I prefer Eva, but Mason and Ava do work well together. They're pretty similar in popularity, which is why.
Claire - I find this 80s dated and just not very pretty.
Chloe - Seconded (or...
Calvin and Nathan would be my picks.
Seeing that you've mentioned Michael and Nicholas, Cal could work as a quirky nickname for either of them - Mike and Nicky, move over.
Michael - the...
Maisie or Maisy rhyme with Daisy. Macy/Macie is May-see. I think Maisie Annabelle has better flow than Maisie Violet, but I prefer the Annabel spelling as it's less overly cutesy. I think Ava,...
I prefer Molly as a given name but I adore Milly (that spelling, for some reason) more as a nickname for Emilia/Amelia. It just feels a bit insubstantial on it's own, plus I've known Mollys in their...

I know (of) two Matildas - one goes by Matty, the other Tilda. The one that goes by Matty uses her full name quite a bit though, while Tilda goes by Tilda almost exclusively. I think Tilly and Tilda...
Zoe and Hugo *swoons*
I like Oliver and Molly together too, but the likelihood is I'd call an Oliver Ollie in part, and Ollie and Molly - well. This is the problem with compiling separate boy and girl lists, not noticing...
Maggie and Jack - I think Jack is too nicknamey next to Margaret. Margaret and John, Maggie and Jack would be better.
Maggie and Henry - Opposite issue, Henry strikes me as too formal next to...
