    Sibling for Matilda

    Just hypothetical, not expecting right now.
    Any suggestions on a good name if Matilda has a little sister? I liked Matilda because it was something a little bit quirky/unusual (here in the US at least) while at the same time being very classic - a name that everyone knows. I also liked its literary namesake in Roald Dahl's Matilda.
    So I'm trying to come up with another girl name that will be along those similar lines that would go well with Matilda. I have one or two ideas but am curious to see what others will suggest!
    Oh, also it has to go with the middle name Pearl.

    These names come to mind because they are kind of old-ladyish, but cool, and some have great nick name possibilities:
    Millicent Pearl
    Lavinia Pearl
    Anastasia Pearl
    Tabitha Pearl
    Eugenia Pearl
    Lucinda Pearl
    Wilhelmina Pearl
    Dorothea Pearl
    Eudora Pearl
    Rowena Pearl
    Marjorie/Margery Pearl
    Winifred Pearl
    Eleanor or Eleanora Pearl
    Evelyn Pearl or Aveline Pearl, since Evelyn is actually quite popular

    I really like Alice, though my husband did not like it last time when we were picking names.
    Harriet - this is a name that is growing on me lately. I at one time would've said this name was really ugly, but now I'm starting to see it in another light.
    Lavinia - This name has not been on my radar before. I actually like it. I feel like Lavinia could be the new Olivia. But I don't know if it feels right with Matilda.
    Rowena - I like this name, but admit I'm not really sure how its supposed to be pronounced. Ro-WEEN-a? RO-wen-a? ro-WEN-a?

    The two that came to mind were Abigail and Elizabeth, because both are classic and in the same vein as Matilda, but they may not be unique enough for you. What about Martha? Arguably too close to Matilda. You could do Charlotte, Lucy, Alice or Tabitha.
