    What would you name the sister of Calista?

    So I'm in the same pickle I was in with Camilla a few days ago - I love this name but I can't tell what style it is persay. To help me figure it out could you suggest names that would go well with it (Calista nn Callie) in a sibset? Would it be weird to have names that aren't Greek/mythological? Would any of the names in my signature go well with it?
    Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

    Calvin ~ Jude ~ Miles ~ Oliver ~ Roscoe ~ Benjamin ~ Leo ~ Adrian ~ Isaac ~ Colin

    Calista and Claudia I could see together (though potentially too matchey for some). Calista and Audrey I could see working too. The others...not so much.

    Other names you might like:
    Althea
    Daphne
    Phoebe
    Xanthe
    Cynthia
    Calliope
    Iris
    Cassandra
    Phaedra
    Ariadne
    Thisbe

    I find all of these lovely, and usable, which is to me just as important.

    I really think Calista and Camilla, Calliope, or Calypso are too close, as they all have the Ca- beginning and Calista goes by Callie. Also, I don't know how you'd like accidentally going into a C theme. If you liked that, I'd recommend Cynthia or Claudia with Calista. I do think the similar sounds with Claudia could become problematic, though. I love Althea, but the Al sound could also cause trouble, as Calista is also Callie. The common nickname for Althea would also be Allie. Callie and Allie anyone?

    I actually like using names that come from ancient or mythological roots, especially ones that give girls a sense of "girl power". Other than those potential problems above, I think you have a wide variety of names that would go lovely with Calista. I really think, of the ones suggested, Daphne and Calista is ridiculously dashing.
