    I love both Ella and Willa but I agree they are way too close for sisters. Ada is really sweet. It's a name I've never really given much thought to, but thinking about it now, I do really like it. It reminds me a lot of Ava which is another name that I love.

    I say go for Ada. Simple, sweet, and sounds lovely next to Ella. I don't think you can go wrong!

    Willa is a great name, but it's so similar to Ella. There's a two letter difference. But Ada is great with Ella. Both are short and sweet, both are vintage, and both have a similar charm. I say yay to Ada!
    Hope that helps!

    Yay for Ada!

    In agreeance will pps; Willa is so close to Ella, I wouldn't do it. I also prefer Ada to Willa. I love it, actually! I posted a while back for suggestions for longer names that Ada can be used as a nn for, because my surname doesn't flow well with Ada. I'm not sure if you're interested in a longer name, as you mentioned disliking multi-syllabic names, but I thought I'd throw some suggestions out there just in case.
