    Naming Forrest's little sister

    If it were up to 2 year old Forrest, her name would be "cupcake." Thoughts on some of these? We're also hoping to have something that can be pronounced well in Spanish - but open to other ideas, too. And she will have a hyphenated last name.

    Bellamy
    Bess
    Blaise
    Bronwyn
    Chelsea
    Cleo
    Eden
    Edith (Edie)
    Elena
    Eliza
    Elowen/Elowyn
    Everest (Evie - short E sound)
    Evita
    Halston (Hallie)
    Hollis
    Leah
    Luciana (Lucy)
    Mariela
    Mayela
    Mia
    Mila
    Naia
    Noelle
    Sienna
    Soledad
    Sybil
    Tess/Tessia

    Thanks for any help!

    Bellamy - cute, but doesn't fit
    Bess - wrong style with Forrest
    Blaise - I know a boy named Blaze, and he's an absolute terror, so this name is forever vetoed for me.
    Bronwyn - prefer Bronwen, but lovely with Forrest!
    Chelsea - nms, but fits nicely with Forrest
    Cleo - see Bess
    Eden - PERFECT with Forrest!
    Edith (Edie) - see Bellamy
    Elena - see Bess
    Eliza -see Bellamy
    Elowen/Elowyn another perfect fit!
    Everest (Evie - short E sound) - definite no from me.
    Evita - see Everest
    Halston (Hallie) - see Everest
    Hollis - see Everest
    Leah -see Bess
    Luciana (Lucy) - see Bess
    Mariela - strangely enough, this fits perfectly.
    Mayela - no
    Mia - excellent
    Mila - excellent fit!
    Naia - definitely no

    Bellamy- just doesn't sound like a fit with Forrest.
    Bess- I think of Bessie... a cow name to me...
    Blaise- boy name
    Bronwyn- not a huge fan, honestly...
    Chelsea- blahhh... 80s baby name.
    Cleo- that psychic on tv...
    Eden- A bit too much with Forrest... sounds like "the forest of Eden"... wait, I thought it was a garden!
    Edith (Edie)- Love!!! It's simple, sweet, and cute...
    Elena- It's ok, but not spectacular with big bro...
    Eliza- My fav so far... it's a PERFECT fit with Forrest!
    Elowen/Elowyn- Meh...
    Everest (Evie - short E sound)- good for a boy.
    Evita- Don't cry for me, Argentina!!! I'll spare you a lecture on her poor leadership, and her husband's lack of understanding of basic economic policy... or the fact that she was quite a scandalous figure for a bit... I would never use this name.
    Halston (Hallie)- good name for a boy.
    Hollis- good name for a boy. What about Holly?
    Leah- Very cute with Forrest. It's simple and cute, but I oddly know very few Leahs...
    Luciana (Lucy)- A bit too much for Forrest. I prefer straight up Lucy... Forrest and Lucy is cute...
    Mariela- No.
    Mayela- No.
    Mia- Very popular...
    Mila- No...
    Naia- No...
    Noelle- This is cute, but I still prefer Forrest and Eliza.
    Sienna- No.
    Soledad- Forrest and Soledad??? Weird... No...
    Sybil- Nope...
    Tess/Tessia- No...
