A sister for Phoebe
So, for our first daughter my husband and I agreed on the name Phoebe. I love the name Phoebe and want to find a name for our 2nd daughter that I love just as much! I am having a hard time finding the perfect name.....Please help!
First, here are the things I love about Phoebe:
-it means brilliant, shining one
-it is biblical
-Greek moon goddess
-unique, but not made up, old world
-there is a Phoebe bird
Here are some names I like, but I'm not sure how well they go with Phoebe:
-Greta (my grandmother's name was Grethel)
-Philippa or Pippa (not sure how I feel about another Ph)
-Carlotta nn Lottie
-Theodora (great grandmother's name was Thea Docia, we called her "Mama Doshie")
-Lark (spunky and another bird name)
I guess maybe I like old lady names Oh, and Phoebe's middle name is Celeste (also my middle name and my grandmother's mn), but don't worry about middle names so much. I can come up with a mn if I can just get the first name figured out!
Do any of these sound ok with Phoebe? Please post other suggestions! Please help me!
Thanks so much!

A soft name like the following would be the best imo.
Ayli The baby girl name Aili is pronounced as EY-Liy- or -AY-Liy- †.
Aili is used mostly in the Scottish, English, and Finnish languages, and its language of origin is Germanic, Old French, and Old Greek.
Aili is a pet form of the English, Gaelic, German, Irish, and Scottish name Aileen.
Aili is also a derivative (Scottish) of the Czech, English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Scandinavian name Alice.
I chose this name as an alternative to Isla and Alice both names go beautifully with Phoebe but I love the sweetness and flow of Ayli although I like the spelling of Aili more and it is interesting to see that it has strong Scottish roots as well as Scandinavian and European.
I like Aili and Phoebe
