    Sister for Lydia: Eleanor, Beatrice, or something else?

    Baby sis is coming soon and we don't feel ready! Top choices are Eleanor (NN Nora) or Beatrice (NN Bea). We like old fashioned names but are worried these are getting too popular. And we're looking for a short MN, maybe iris, violet, Gwen.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I like both options but slightly prefer Eleanor/Nora with Lydia. I like Beatrice but not Bea so much as a nickname.

    Plus Eleanor works great with all your nn options!

    Another name that popped into mind was Margot.

    Eleanor MN's:
    Jane
    June
    Lucy
    Tess
    Zoe
    Helene
    From your list
    Eleanor Violet - Love! Strong but incredibly gentle.
    Eleanor Iris - R heavy
    Eleanor Gwen - Nice, but I prefer Violet. This combo is just too soft.

    Beatrice:
    Jane
    Ruby
    June
    Zoe

    From your list
    Beatrice Violet - I really like! Maybe more than Eleanor Violet
    Beatrice Iris - The "ris" sound is repeated in BeatRICe and iRIS.
    Beatrice Gwen - Feels a bit old.

    I really love Eleanor Tess, Eleanor Jane, and Beatrice June!
