Vintage Gems :)
I am looking for 3 girls names that are uniquely their own, but that sound magnificent together as siblings. No, I'm not expecting triplets by the way I love vintage, classic, and British names with cute, spunky nicknames. I have a short list of names that I really like and I'd love your opinion on them. I would also love to hear other suggestions! My list contains names that are pretty popular ... Almost too popular for my taste, but I feel they properly describe my naming style! Thanks for all of your help
My list includes:
Agatha nn Aggie
Adelaide nn Addie/Laidy (Lady)
Charlotte nn Hattie (too much of a stretch?)*
Dorothy nn Dot(tie)
Elisabeth nn Lilibet
Eleanor nn Ellie
Emmaline/Emmeline nn Emma/Emme
Evangeline nn Evie
Georgia nn Gigi/Georgie
Madeline nn Maddie
Margaret nn Maggie
Victoria nn Vita
Again, thanks for all of your help!

My favorite trio from your list is Elisabeth, Alice and Victoria but I agree all are quite popular
Some not so popular vintage names, some with nns, would be:
Arabella-Ari or Bella
Araminta- Ari or Minty
Amelia-Millie, Mia, Mimi or Lia
Caroline- Callie, Carly or Carrie
Dorothea-Dottie or Thea
Elizabella- Ellie, Bella
Felicity- Flick, Flicka, Fee, or Lissy
Georgiana- Gigi, Georgie, or Gee
Penelope- Poppy, Penny, or Nellie
Susannah- Suzie or SunnyViolet Gray

Thank you all for your sweet and helpful comments!!
I love the sibset of Agatha, Edith, and Mabel, but I'm afraid my family and community aren't ready for a little Edith yet The combination of Alice, Eleanor, and Margaret & Adelaide, Charlotte, and Elisabeth are divine! From your listed suggestions, I really like:
Beatrice (I love the nickname Bea, but Beatrice isn't my favorite name ... All I see when I look at this gem is Beat-rice)
Adelaide, Charlotte, and Georgia are great together, but I don't like the fact that Charlotte and Georgia are both "place" names. I'm afraid it would look like I was trying too hard to find matching names. Victoria, Elisabeth, and Margaret & Alice, Eleanor, and Madeline are both gorgeous sets. Thank you!
The suggestion of Etta is beautiful. I truly love the name, but I feel like it is short for something and needs a longer name. Charlotte, Alice, and Evangeline go swimmingly together. Thanks
I also love the combination of Elisabeth, Alice, and Victoria. From the listed suggestions, I really like:
Arabella (I love the nickname Bella, but is it really as popular as people say it is?!?)
Amelia nn Lia
Adeline nn Addie
Annabel (I LOVE this spelling and the nn Belle!)
Dorothy nn Dottie
Thanks, again, for all of your help!

Names on your list I'm very fond of: Charlotte, Elisabeth (I much prefer the s over the z spelling!), Eleanor, Emmaline, Evangeline, Victoria, Adelaide.
Hattie isn't really too much of a stretch for Charlotte, but I think it's...unnecessary? I'm not sure, I just don't particularly like it. I much prefer Charlie, Lottie, Harley, Ari, Char.
I think Lilibet is too much of a stretch from Elisabeth because it's a totally different name in my mind. I know it's a diminutive, but it's not my pick. I prefer Libby even. Same goes for Victoria nn Vita. Also, another nickname for Adelaide could be Hadley.
Agatha is one of my least favourite name, and so is Aggie. I just do not see the appeal in the name at all.
Charlotte, Victoria, and Elisabeth.
Evangeline, Adelaide, and Charlotte.
Emmaline, Charlotte, Madeline.
Evangeline, Madeline, and Emmaline. (Same endings, but very different general sounds imo)
Eleanor, Georgia, and Dorothy. (All contain "or")
Alice, Dorothy, and Margaret.2O - Aries - Slytherin - Daycare Assistant Teacher
Names of the moment:
Adriana | Alena | Laurel
Newest thoughts for little ones: Angelo - Caspian - Eden | Brisa - Gisele

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments. Meg is actually short for Megan (which I hate! I think it is so trendy and overused. In my graduating class alone there were 5 Megan's and my class was tiny! I would much prefer Margaret nn Meg!). My middle name is Elisabeth after my mother Lisa and my aunt Beth. This is why I have chosen Elisabeth with an "s" rather than a "z"!*
I really appreciate your sibset suggestions. They are all lovely! I never realized this would be so hard of a decision.*
Please keep the comments and suggestions coming!
