Challenge for you, Berries! What to name Cassius and Apollo's sister?
Hi Berries, a friend of mine has asked me to post on her behalf. She already has two sons with wonderful names (Cassius and Apollo nn Cass and Poe). I happened to mention that both boys have double letters contained in their names so it was a nice subtle connection between them. She's now expecting a girl and would like to continue the theme if possible (eg. if she finds a name she loves). I've told her I will make a list of girls names with double letters for her. The names I've collected so far are below but nothing is jumping off the page for me as yet. There are only a few which have the same style and substance as Cassius and Apollo.
The criteria: no names beginning with "C", "A" or "H" (surname is Hale). Preferably, names in the Latin, Greek, classical, mythological or quirky word styles.
Question 1: Are there any names you list from the list below?
Question 2: Can you think of any more double lettered girls names that I can add to the list?Thanks for your help!
Note: I think the name Persephone would be lovely with her boys but I'm saving that for later if she doesn't find one here to go with her desired theme.
Estella ( a top contender)
Roxanna (another contender)
Corinna (love it but it's the same initial as Cassius)
Camilla/Camille (same initial)
Drusilla (not a fave)
Priscilla (too prissy)
Isabella/Isabelle (too popular)
Gabriella/Gabrielle (too common)
Adrienne/Vivienne/Fabienne (too bland?)
Calliope (love it but it has same initial as Cassius)
Callista (don't know if I think this spelled with two l's and again the same initial)
Callisto (same initial as Cassius and ends the same as Apollo)
Cassandra (same initial)
CallaAll the best,

My picks from your list:
Estella - I'm not a fan of Stella on it's own, but I love Estelle and Estella, nn can be Essie instead, which is super cute!
Bettina - I adore "Bet" names, perhaps Elisabetta or Isabetta? I'm in love with Isabetta as an alternative to super popular Isabella
Speaking of Isabella, I like Sabella instead of Sybilla, and perhaps she would like Bellatrix?
Jessamine - a new fave
These are the ones that I think would sound best with Cassius and Apollo.
Some others with double letters:
Cressida (starts with C though)
Aquinnah (unfortunately starts with A, I love it as a full name for a girl Quinn)
Dellina, Della, Delly
Loretta, Coretta, Etta
