    Vera
    Gianna
    Annelise (nn: Annie, Elise)
    Corinna (nn: Cora)
    Aubriana (nn: Bri, Aubri)
    Leora (nn: Elle, Ora)
    Arianna (nn: Ara)
    Isla (seems fitting since we're living in Hawaii for the next 2 years)
    Luciana (nn: Lucia, Luci)
    Layla (again the Hawaii thing)
    Vera - TOO classic/old-lady cool with Lilia
    Gianna - Cute and feminine!
    Annelise (nn: Annie, Elise) - Like Anneliese spelling, MN?
    Corinna (nn: Cora) - Very similar sound to Lilia...
    Aubriana (nn: Bri, Aubri) - Sounds made-up and trendy.
    Leora (nn: Elle, Ora) - Too close to Lilia!
    Arianna (nn: Ara) - Pretty, like Ari nickname.
    Isla - Similar sound to Lilia...
    Luciana (nn: Lucia, Luci) - Same letter, different style.
    Layla (again the Hawaii thing) - Like a lei? Too close to Lilia!

    My favorites from this list are Gianna and Ariana, but I really would prefer if your daughter had a name ending in something different than -a (like Lilia). I also like Anneliese as a middle name.

    Some names that I like with Lilia:

    Cecily "Ceci"
    Clementine "Tina"
    Edolie "Edie"
    Juliet "Jules"
    Magdalen "Maggie"
    Mariel "Mari"
    Melody "Mel"
    Mirabel "Mimi," "Belle"
    Vallerie "Val"

    My favorites from my suggestions (with Lilia) are Cecily, Juliet, Mariel, Melody, and Vallerie.

    As for middle names (to match Josephine), my suggestions are:

    Beatrice
    Coralie
    Eleanor
    Genevieve
    Heloise
    Isabelle
    Madeleine
    Marguerite
    Natalie
    Rosalie
    Violet
    Vivienne

    So, my suggested name combinations (with Lilia Josephine) are:

    Cecily Madeleine "Ceci"
    Juliet Vivienne "Jules"
    Mariel Beatrice "Mari"
    Melody Violet "Mel"
    Vallerie Isabelle "Val"

    Best wishes to you and your family!

    Boy Combinations: Archer Solomon James, Ronan Charles Bennett, Everett Hawthorn Thomas
    Girl Combinations: Phoebe Marietta Pearl, Clara Daphne Eloise
    Other Favorites: Eliza (Eliza Wren), Juliet, Rosanna, Thea, Johanna, Jude

    Re: Help narrow my name list!!

    Great job choosing your first daughter's name. Lilia is my favorite girls name, been number 1 on my list for the longest time! It's tough finding a name that matches Lilia but I'll give it my best try:)

    Vera is pretty but too old-lady compared to Lilia

    Gianna.......I just don't see it. Might just be me though

    Annelise is beautiful (especially spelled Anneliese, imo) but I'm not sure if it's the same style as Lilia

    Corrina, not my favorite, although Cora nn is cute

    Aubrianna- I prefer Adrianna or Arianna

    Leora, not my favorite

    Arianna, very pretty

    Isla is nice but becoming a bit popular I think. Also, Lilia has three of Isla's letter in it......

    How are you pronouncing Luciana? I think that Lucia (loo CHEE ah) would be very pretty too, though having both daughter's starting with the same letter might bother you.

    Layla isn't my favorite and to be honest, I don't really like the sound of it.

    Some suggestions (apologizes for repeats):

    Cecilia
    Cecily
    Eva
    Lorelai (Hawaiian and very pretty)
    Elodie
    Amelie
    Angelina

    I really like Corinna. How are you pronouncing it? I pronounce it core-ree-nuh. It's really pretty with Lilia. I like most of your other names, but I agree they are pretty similar.
