    Tali and Tallie/Tally are pronounced differently. Tallie and Tally rhyme with alley. Tali is a Hebrew name meaning dew ("tal" means dew in Hebrew) and is pronounced tah-lee. There is no emphasis on either syllable; it is often mispronounced as TAWL-ee, which it is not.

    The link I found listed Tali as an Arabic name meaning "the next" (as well as being a form of Tal). Still, the pronunciation is the same as the Hebrew Tali. I automatically assumed they were all the same, but they wouldn't have to be. And honestly, Tali could still be a nn for Natalie or Tallulah, and could still be pronounced the same as Tallie or Tally or Talie, if one wished.

    My name is actually Natalie, and my nickname and Hebrew name Tali. Americans often mispronounce it, though never as Tally or Talie, just as tawl-ee with the emphasis on the first syllable, though Australians and Brits are fine with it.

    I also like the name others have suggested. My favorites are Lorelei/Lorelai, Eleni, Noemi, Sarai, Heidi, and Jaci (spelled like that).A close friend goes by Lexi.
    Other suggestions:
    Keri (I know it's a bit dated but I love it)
    Mari
    Kati
    Cadi
    Christi
    Demi*
    Suri

    Of course you could start you own tradition and decide to end all the girls name with others letters, but it's up to you.
    Good Luck!
