    Pick a sib set! - Poll included

    I can't decide the route I want to go with names.......I just can't pick between short and chic, or longer and more....up market maybe?

    Which would you pick between these 2 all female sibsets?

    Claudie (pronounced with a British accent lol, rhymes with Lordy not Clotty), Lina, Thea, Allegra and Belle

    or Cordelia nn Cordy, Karolina nn Lina, Theodora nn Thea, Allegria nn Allie and Mirabella nn Mira or Belle.

    So to summarise it's:
    Claudie, Lina, Thea, Allegra and Belle
    or
    Cordelia, Karolina, Theadora, Allegria and Mirabella.

    Or can I pick and choose my fav versions of the names from both sets do you think and not worry about having some daughters with long names and some with short?

    I wouldn't worry too hard about matching. I really think Allegria is a painful attempt to make it match length-wise. I wouldn't try to force an all 4-syllable set. Maybe I'm saying it wrong, but I thought Cordelia had three syllables anyway: Coar-deel-ya.

    Is Lina Lye-na or Leena?

    Lina is Lee-nuh.

    And I say Cordelia with 4 syllables but it wasn't necessarily to make them have the same amount of syllables it was just to have them all seem longer, I could have gone the Claudiana route! Lol.

    Its less about length and more about styles that match.

    Thanks for your opinions anyway!

    Claudie, Lina, Thea, Allegra and Belle - I think Claudie and Lina are cute, but too short/nickname-y for me. I love Thea and Belle, and for me these work as full names, I love them :) I really, really dislike Allegra though.
    or
    Cordelia, Karolina, Theadora, Allegria and Mirabella - I love Mirabella and Theodora. Codelia is okay, as is Carolina. Again, I hate Allegria.

    My favourite set similar would be:
    Claudia or Cecelia
    Caroline
    Theodora
    Mirabel
    Adeline

    Claudie/Cece, Carrie, Thea, Belle, Ada.

    I just want to make it one name - Allegra Mirabelle!

    I think you could get away with Allegra, Cordelia, and Mirabella as siblings, though I like Allegra, Cordelia, and Miranda better. Allegra, Viola, and Carina would be beautiful, too!
