    Exclamation Sibling for Millie- due date in 10 days!

    I'm still undecided about a baby name. Our daughter is Amelia, but always called Millie.

    The girl names we like best right now are:
    -Emmeline
    -Margaret
    -Elinor
    -Violet

    I'm worried about picking a name that sounds nice next to Millie, which sounds sweet and a little frilly to me. For what it's worth, I strongly prefer classic, old fashioned, not-too-popular names (obviously, I didn't call that so well with Amelia!) The middle name is going to be either Mae or Camilla (both family names).

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    From your list, I like Violet best, both aesthetically and as a stylistic match (and phonetic contrast) for Amelia. I think I like Violet Mae better than Violet Camilla

    Elinor Mae would be my first choice. Amelia and Elinor ( Mille and Ellie or Millie and Nora) are great sister names, Margaret Camilla would be second choice. Amelia and Margaret (Millie and Maggie) work well together too.

    To me, I see the the Emma variations as overdone and Violet is becoming popular.
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.
