    My favorite is also Lydia.

    And I think Hannah, Susannah, or Ruth could go nicely with Marian and Ford. Fiona and Nora are in the right palette, but they're a bit close to Ford for me. Margo and Martha are close to Marian, and Matilda isn't as simple/elegant/serious as Marian and Ford. Olive is also in this category - too playful/trendy for a sister to beautiful Marian.
    Rosalind, Charlotte, and Caroline are all too formal for Ford, and Caro makes me think of Karo syrup.

    Daisy should be in the "too playful" category, but I want to believe she'd work because I have a real weakness for Daisy! So sweet. Are you hoping to honor a Marguerite with Daisy or Margo? If so, there's always Rita, which would give your sibset a kind of Old Hollywood feeling... Like John Ford, Marion Davies (or Cotillard) and Rita Hayworth? Or there's Greta (as in Garbo)

    Lydia is a FABULOUS name. Watch Groucho Marx sing "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" and you will be convinced.
    I'm feeling very silver-screen tonight apparently.
