    Cecily and ......

    We have 2 daughters Lilla** and Vivienne. We hope to have 4 children so we look at sib-sets in that grouping. Rosalie, Isobel and Cecily are our top picks if we have another girl next, we would use only one of these. All of them are longer so we would like to pair it with a short name to balance out Lilla, we aren't against using another short name that ends in a.

    For example we love
    Lilla, Vivienne, Rosalie and Cora
    Lilla, Vivienne, Isobel and Sylvie.
    When we get to what to pair with Cecily we're drawing a blank, we thought Eleanor but I would prefer a shorter name.

    Some short names we like but don't love or don't work are:
    Thea
    Sybil
    Florence
    Cecile
    Vera
    Iris
    Celia
    Violet
    Rose

    We would like a soft sounding vintage (turn of the century) name. Possibly french nicknames but nothing ending in the ee sound. Different starting initial (which is why Violet and Vera won't work)

    **Lilla has a short i sound like Willa or Lily not Lila/Lyla

    Sylvie | Rosalie | Cecily | Eleanor | Rufus | Jasper | Graham

    What about Lilla, Vivienne, Cecily, and Nora or Dora or Flora? My favorite is Flora.

    or maybe:
    Etta
    Ruth
    Pearl
    Dinah
    Blair
    Hazel
    Helen
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    I've always loved Cecily paired with a sister named Rosamund. I think I read far too much British history because this duo sounds very British to me (not that there is anything wrong with that ).
    All the best,
    Mischa.
