Felicity v. Dorothy/Dorothea
Ok, berries, I think we are *almost* decided. Baby girl will be here next month!
First names are narrowed down to Felicity and Dorothy/Dorothea. We do not love any nicknames for Felicity so we would most likely use the full name (possibly considering Faye as nn). Dorothy/Dorothea would have the nickname Dottie. Older sister is Vera Eliane, last name is pronounced Keekly. So here are my questions:
1. Do you like Dorothy or Dorothea better, considering Vera as older sister? Is Dorothea too long compared to Vera? Although they would be called Vera & Dottie.
2. Preferences for Felicity vs. Dorothea/Dorothea?
3. Middle name suggestions? I really like Felicity Pearl. I like Dorothea Sage, but not sure. We would probably prefer to go wtih a short middle name since the first name will be at least 3 syllables.
Please help us make a final decision! Thanks!

These are all great choices. Vera has a very sophisticated vibe to me and I believe it matches Dorothea the best of the three choices. They both have a romantic, vintage, Victorian feel. If you choose Felicity though there are also the nn options of Flossie and Flick/a. Also I love your mn choices, they're perfect!

Vera & Felicity are a better set, but I like Dorothy/Dorothea better as name, so it depends on what's more important to you. Faye is a pretty nickname, but I like Vera & Lacey better (I know a Felicity who goes by Lacey, so maybe I'm biased). Felicity Pearl is a little too old-ladyish for me; Felicity Sage is better.Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore FitzwilliamRosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid

With Vera for an older sister, I would rate your choices in this order.
1 Dorothy - I love these two vintage names together.
2 Dorothea - has the same charm as Vera. If you're going to call her Dottie, length isn't really important.
3 Felicity - I love this name but it does seem more contemporary in vibe than Vera.All the best,
