    Help with Sibling name

    Our first child's name is Annika (pronounced like Monica without the "M"). We are expecting our second child and would love help with girl names that complement. If we have a boy, his name will be Nelson (my maiden name and a tribute to my Swedish heritage).

    So, we are looking for a Swedish or German name of similar popularity to Annika, that is, not very popular (I think it's ranked in the 500s in the United States).

    My favorite girl names start with A, but I don't think I want to have both girls have A names.

    Other contenders on our list are typed below, so I'd love opinions on which ones you think go best, as well as other suggestions.

    Thanks in advance!

    I love the name Caia, but am not sure how well it goes with Annika.
    Bryn
    Matilda
    Ingrid
    Ottilie
    Evelina (pronounced Ev a leena)
    similarly, Elina (el leena)
    Novalie
    Henriette

    I love Ingrid and I think it goes beautifully with Annika.

    I prefer Nova to Novalie, but both are pretty.

    suggestions:
    Jessamy
    Linnea
    Greta
    Livia
    Cordelia
    Britta
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    Love Ingrid or Matilda with Annika. Like Ottilie too, but starts with same Ah- sound.

    I love both of your E names and Ingrid and Bryn. My husband's cousin, Britta, named all of her children Swedish names. She has three girls (and two boys): Liesel (love this one), Brianna (not exactly unique...but it may be with this age group) and Heidi (pretty and traditional).
