I am currently crushing on Octavia with the nn "Tavi." I love the combination of a strong sounding name with a warm and friendly nickname.
What would be a good middle name? I thought of Octavia Juliet, but is that too much Shakespeare in one name? I would love to her other ideas!
Also, who would her siblings be (brothers or sisters)? I thought of Genevieve with the nn "Evie," but Tavi and Evie are probably too close for sisters. Any other ideas?

Genevieve and Octavia are darling together! How about Guinevere as an alternative?
Octavia and Rosalind. Octavia and Penelope. Octavia and Edward.
Octavia Juliet is a very beautiful name, but I agree, it's a bit too much Shakespeare. I'm not a fan of the nickname Tavi, but then again that's just personal preference.
Octavia Elizabeth, Octavia Isobel, Octavia June, and Octavia Guinevere actually sounds quite nice, but I don't know if it's a bit too heavy.

alliecat: Octavia Guinevere is absolutely gorgeous, but it is a very big and heavy name. I think Octavia Elizabeth is very wearable though! Great suggestion! As far as Guinevere as a first name, I guess Gwen in the obvious nn...what about Vera as a nn? Would that be too close to Tavi? Tavi and Vera. Hmmm...

Octavia Juliet sounds gorgeous! Strong and powerful but elegant and feminine, like an ancient queen or well-to-do Renaissance noblewoman, who wants the best possible situation for her family and obsessively arranges marriages into influential families for her children.
From the suggestions above, I love Octavia Guinevere which gives me the same kind of vibe. I love Elizabeth but to me it holds Octavia back too much, not letting her be dramatic and shine.
I actually had to look up which play Octavia is from, despite my love of Shakespeare. I don't think you'll be getting constant "like the character" comments.
I could see the following as siblings for Octavia:
Theodore/Theobold/Theophilus~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3
Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Victoria, Diana, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy... don't love many boys' names!
