    Thanks for your responses! I agree that Cecily is more frilly, while Phoebe is fairly short and sweet like Nora. I keep going back and forth!

    Just a quick poll: one or the other.

    We're considering Cecily or Phoebe as a little sister for Nora. Which do you prefer (whether by itself or with sister's name)? Thanks for your opinions!

    I agree with this as well. However, if you want a short, cute, nickname-like set, then Pippa and Lottie fit the bill!

    I think it's a pretty name and would work well with your other girls. Plus, I have a soft spot for Josephine March, who it reminds me of :) I like Josie as a nickname as well.

    I think Phina works, and Effie could work, too. If Effie doesn't seem to flow as well from the name for you, what about Sephie? (or however you'd like to spell that)

    As a French speaker, it's just a word to me. As an English speaker, I don't think it makes a good name. Also, "noire" (with the e) is the feminine form of the adjective.
