    Question A sister for Jillian Renae

    Trying to think of a name for a girl. My daughter's name is Jillian Renae. Our last name ends in -on.
    I like names that aren't totally popular (although I love Charlotte as it was my grandma's middle name) since our last name isn't that uncommon.
    My grandma's name was Rose and my mother in law's middle name was Lee (I thought about Leah).
    My current top girls name is Sasha, but I don't think my husband will like it.
    Any ideas?

    Rosalie? It puts together your family names and Rosalie & Jillian sound great together!

    Sasha feels much more Eastern European than Jillian IMO, so while it's pretty, I wouldn't say it quite "goes." That said, I like Jillian because it can match with both vintage girly names (like Charlotte) and more contemporary spunky names (like Sasha).

    I too thought of Rosalie (or even Rosalee if you want to be more direct). So some ideas with Jillian Renae would be:
    Rosalie Charlotte
    Elise Charlotte
    Tessa Rose
    Delaney Leah
    Camille Rosa
    Eliza Charlotte
    Ivy Charlotte
    Isla Rosalie
    Nina Charlotte
    Olive Rosalie
    Lucille Rose or Lucy Charlotte
    Meredith Rose
    Elinor Lee

    Thought of Rosalie immediately, too!

    As for Sasha, it can be a diminutive for the Alex- names in Eastern European countries, if I'm not mistaken.
    So what about something like Alexa?
    Or if you like the sounds in Sasha and need more options there are Saskia, Masha, Natasha, or Anoushka.

    So, perhaps:

    Jillian Renae and Rosalie Charlotte ( as pp suggested, this is gorgeous)

    Jillian Renae and Alexa Lee
    Jillian Renae and Saskia Lee
    Jillian Renae and Natasha Lee

    etc...
