    Four guidelines for girls' names - help me find names that fit them?

    I posted this earlier but keep getting suggestions that don't follow the guidelines I put so I figured I'd post again and make it clearer. We've decided we want one more child and for girls' names, we're stuck because all the names we like don't fit in with siblings' names. Guidelines we'd like to follow;

    1) not two syllables - since my daughters are Audrey, Violet, and Felicity, another two syllable name would make Felicity stand out I think

    2) not ending in 'ee' sound - since Audrey and Felicity end in 'ee', I don't want to leave Violet out

    3) not starting with A, J, C, V, F, or I (because of siblings Audrey, Jude, Christian, Violet, Felicity, and Isaac)

    4) same style as sibling names - something that fits well with Audrey Cecilia, Jude Alexander, Christian Nathaniel, Violet Annabelle, Felicity Charlotte, and Isaac Benjamin


    There are a bunch of names that I love but don't work for one reason or another;

    Cora - same letter as Christian and is two syllables
    Sadie - two syllables and ends in 'ee' sound
    Scarlett - two syllables and two close to Violet
    Molly - two syllables and ends in 'ee'
    Eloise nn Elsie - two syllables, ends in 'ee', and too close to Felicity nn Lissie
    Penelope - along with all the nicknames from it, ends in 'ee'
    Matilda - just don't like it, as much as I wish I did


    Any suggestions very much appreciated!
    Audrey Cecilia - Jude Alexander - Christian Nathaniel - Violet Annabelle - Felicity Charlotte - and introducing Isaac Benjamin

    Hmm that certainly is hard...

    Priscilla
    Seraphina
    Olivia

    I think Eloise would work if you didn't shorten it to Elsie, have you considered that?

    Firstly, I wouldn't worry about #1 & 2 very much since you do have boys as well. I don't think anyone will feel left out based on syllables, but I can understand not wanting another ee sound.

    Helena
    Milana
    Philippa
    Emmeline
    Persephone
    Daniella
    Rebecca
    Lauren
    Olivia
    Emilia
    Natalia
    Sienna
    Estella

    I would go with Sienna or Estella.
