    Sister for Dashiell

    I posted a few weeks ago looking for literary girl names to pair with my son's name, Dashiell Arvid. I'm still not finding "the name" that my husband and I can agree on (thankfully we still have 15 weeks to go) so I'm looking to broaden my search.

    I have a few criteria that I consider (but am willing to ignore):
    - a real name (not made up)
    - not overly used in the states
    - natural nickname
    - easy pronunciation (if no natural nickname)

    My favorites: Philippa (Pippa), Florence (Flora), Daphne, Beatrice (Bea)
    My husband's favorites: Willa, Alice

    I also am toying with the idea of a surname - like Salinger nn Sally?

    Any other ideas to pair with Dash?

    I think all your choices are solid and a good pairing with Dash.

    I especially like Beatrice, Alice and Florence with Dashiell. And luckily I don't think your taste is too off from your husbands.

    What about:
    Phoebe
    Miriam
    Winifred nn Winnie
    Harriet nn Hattie
    Josephine nn Josie or Phee
    Delphine nn Phin
    Vivian nn Vivi.

    First thing that came to mind was Wilhelmina (in your style) nn Willa (for him).

    Elsa
    Philomena nn Mena
    Eleanor
    Annora
    Delia
    Magnolia nn Nola
    Theodora nn Thea, Dora
    Amoret
    Liora
    Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore Fitzwilliam
    Rosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid
