    Siblings for Elizabeth?

    Hi! So let's say theoretically you have siblings named Elizabeth and Josiah, sometimes called Betty and Joe. What sibling names for boys and girls would match those?

    I am thinking for girls you would have to stick to classic names but I'm drawing sort of a blank for boys. Nickname suggestions are appreciated too. These are ideas I have so far. Please tell me if you think any of these would be a bad fit and what other suggestions you have.

    Thanks!

    Girls:
    Virginia nn Gia, Via (other nicknames besides Ginny, Ginya?)
    Victoria nn Via
    Katherine/Catherine nn Katy/Caty, Kate/Cate - which spelling?
    Miranda nn Mimi, Minda
    Rebecca nn Ree
    Theresa nn Ree, Resi
    Tabitha - I can't stand Tabby or Bitsy. Any other nn possibilities? Is this too weird to be a sis to Elizabeth?

    Boys:
    Augustus nn Gus

    And beyond that I got nothing.

    Elizabeth and Josiah feels very different to me (they go together very well though) so I'd pick something that's unlike them again.

    I think Miranda for a girl is perfect. The others either fit with E (Victoria, Catherine and Virginia) or J (Theresa and Rebecca).
    Suggestions:
    Roxana
    Marian
    Rosamund
    Helena
    Josephine

    I think Augustus would be cool! Also Tiberius, Cornelius, Cassian.

    Thanks, Ottilie!

    I LOVE Josephine but its too close to Josiah. Booooo!

    I am also really feeling Roxana lately! And Helena is one of my faves but Hubs hates it. :-(

    Dude, I'm an idiot! Obviously Josephine doesn't work... I'll have a think and see if I can find some more.

    Elizabeth, Josiah and...

    Augustus, Catherine and Virginia were my favorites from your list. I think they all work beautifully. I would be very tempted by Virginia nn Ginny with Elizabeth nn Betty. Betty and Ginny would be so sweet together.
    Oh, and I like Tabitha, nn Tibby.

    Others:
    Susannah
    Rosalie
    Genevieve
    Magdalene
    Beatrice

    Oliver
    Theodore
    Benjamin
    Daniel
    Samuel
    Gideon
    Malachi
    Nathaniel
