    Cecily vs. Tessa

    As a little sister for Nora, do you prefer Cecily or Tessa?

    Cecily: The middle name would likely be Hazel, but it's not set in stone.

    Tessa: Our last name starts with Sh-, so we'd name her Tessa instead of Tess. We'd probably call her both and give her the option of using either. We could use Hazel as a middle name here, too, but I think Hazel sounds sounds better with Cecily. We're focusing on first names before worrying too much about middles.

    Any other comments or suggestions are welcome. Thank you!

    Hazel is cute with both of them, and I like Tessa with Nora. : )
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

    Cecily. I like it better with Hazel and better with the first sound of your last name. Cecily Hazel is a very pretty name.

    Normally I would prefer Tessa, but something about Nora and Cecily as sisters is too perfect to pass up.
