    Cleo's Sister: All Sass, History & Simplicity

    I LOVE the name Cleo Eleanor (Eleanor's a family name- not something I'd change) but I can't come up for a good sister name. Middle name would be Mary. Brothers would be Patrick (PJ) and Robert (Bobby).

    I would like the name to have only one commonly used spelling (I know about Clio/Cleo, but I think most people would automatically think Cleo) and I don't mind if it's longer than Cleo as long as it isn't too elaborate.

    I've already thought of:
    Iris Mary- I like it, but I always think of eyeballs when I hear Iris...
    Ruby Mary- Don't like the double -y ending, and I don't like some words that rhyme with Ruby.
    Linnea Mary- I ALWAYS think of an SNL skit with a character named Linnea, and even though it was hilarious, it just kind of killed it for me.
    Juliet Mary- Lovelovelove Juliet, but I knew some terrible Julies/Julias while growing up.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    I love Juliet too! If you have your own Juliet, none of the previous Julies you knew will matter, is my opinion I say go for it!

    Cleo is spunky so I like Ruby with the name. Second choice would be Iris. No, Ruby Mary isn't ideal but we rarely use our mn's anyway so it's not a big deal. The flow between the first name and surname is MORE important. Would you consider using a version of Mary like Marian, Maria or Mariel?

    Cleo and sister...

    Alyssa: I do love Juliet, but I just can't get past the association with those girls... Gemma, maybe?

    Mischa: I also don't like some words that rhyme with Ruby... And Mary is a family name, and I don't like any of its variants as much as I like the name itself. From your list, I love Eva (prefer Eve, though), Junia, Isis (LOVE, but possibly too Ancient Egypt-themed with the short form of Cleopatra?), Lilith and Esme.

    Thanks! Keep 'em coming, berries!
