    Ophelia, not many people are that well-versed in Shakespeare anyway, so I don't think it will come up as a problem.
    Beatrice is a perfect pairing with Ophelia
    Good luck!!

    Ophelia, by far. I love the name personally, and it fit better in your sibling's names ideas. As for the teasing, Juliet also commits suicide, and that's never been an issue that seems to have affected the popularity of that name.

    Ophelia by far. Ophelia Catherine Jane is stunning. I wouldn't worry about the teasing potential.

    Definitely Ophelia Catherine Jane. You just managed to smoosh my top 3 girls' combos. I don't really dislike Millie, but there are so many Millies and Tillys and Lilys about it doesn't feel that special. Also, its basically Northern Irish for a female chav when spelt with a -y, which is something I can never quite see past, although it's fine if you don't live in NI.

    And regarding Ophelia getting bullied - how many kids would know that Ophelia in Hamlet committed suicide? I daresay they would never have heard of her. I've never heard of a Juliet getting teased based on the same reasons, and she's much more famous.

    Btw, I agree with Whillemina above that Beatrice is just perfect with Ophelia.
