    How about this one?

    I've considered it before but not seriously...

    Jessamine

    How does it sound with Matilda, Olwen, Beatrix and Arabella?

    Middle name ideas?

    I would lean towards the nickname Minnie but that wouldn't work alongside hypothetical sister Winnie (Olwen) so I guess then there's Jess, Jessa, Sami, anything else I'm missing? I do think in the UK Jess would be used which I don't particularly like. I prefer Jessie/Jessa to just Jess.

    Do you prefer Jessamine or Jessamy?

    I like it (obviously) though I prefer the spelling Jessamyn. I think it works with the other girls names you have picked out, with Olwen actually being the odd duck in my opinion.

    Jessamyn Lila
    Jessamyn Dahlia
    Jessamyn Caia
    Jessamyn Fae
    Jessamyn Lux

    Minnie is a cute nickname. Perhaps Amy/Amie, Myna/Mina, or Jamy/Jamie as nicknames? Or depending on the middle name, you could do something like Jadey/Jade/JD (Jessamyn Dahlia) or Jacey/JC (Jessamyn Caia)...

    Jessamy!

    I love hearing it get appreciation on here, it's a favourite. It's so quirky and English sounding to me, although in the UK it's quite dated. It's so fun and sing-songy, and to me it has the same trendy feel as Romilly/Ottilie but without the rising popularity.

    I like Jessamine too, but I keep wanting to say Jessa-MEEN.

    I love Jessamine (and this spelling), and it really goes with Matilda (love), Olwen, Beatrix (love) and Arabella. It's third on my list, and my combo is Jessamine Lyra Aurora, and if I were to use a nn, it would probably be Jessie; I feel as if Jessa is a bit incomplete, like you might as well say the 'mine' part. Jessamy sounds a bit too much like a nn to me, much prefer Jessamine!
