    Sister for Phoebe

    Trying to come up with a name for Phoebe's little sister. My husband likes London, and while I think it's cute, I don't think it pairs well with Phoebe at all. I like Violet and Clara, but my husband does not. Another thought I had was Annabel, but he's lukewarm on the name. Any suggestions? I want something cute, quirky, and timeless. Oh, and she has a brother named Beckett.

    I'm not a fan of London; it definitely has a trendy vibe to me, despite being an ancient city!

    Phoebe is a real classic. I definitely second the suggestion of Iris; you've got very different sounds, yet both are Greek in origin.

    How about other Greek names:
    Hyacinth
    Penelope (too matchy?)
    Delphine/Delphina/Delphinia

    Shakespearean ladies (Phoebe, spelled Phebe, is a character in As you Like It):
    Rosalind/Rosaline
    Beatrice
    Celia
    Helena
    Viola
    Imogen
    Nerissa
    Miranda
    Silvia
    Valentine

    Or names that were popular in 18th century literature (Phoebe fits this category too):
    Clarissa
    Pamela
    Romola
    Cecelia
    Evelina
    Camilla
    Elberta

    Other thoughts:
    Mabel: quirky and cute with Phoebe
    Annabet: a form of Annabeth and a different spin on Annabel
    Betsan: Welsh variant of Elizabeth
    Ida: Soft but definitely quirky in my book
    Tamsin: Quirky and spunky
    Current top 10:
    Girls: Greta, Gwendolyn, Iris, Irene, Ida, Beatrice, Penelope, Margaret, Hattie, June
    Boys: Henry, Dean, Desmond, Gregory, Arthur, Ingram, Griffith, Russell, Orion, Martin
