Traditional Girl Names with a Twist

Can Penelope’s sister have a name as short as Alice or Claire? More importantly, does this mom want her to?

Erin writes:

We are expecting our second girl and struggling to agree on a name! Our older daughter is Penelope Reese, and we absolutely love her name.

My husband is leaning towards short and sweet names this time. Alice and Claire are his two favorites. I’m worried those names will seem too boring next to the lengthier Penelope, even though I do like them both. We tend to gravitate toward vintage names and I’d like to find something that isn’t too popular, but isn’t too rare. We are both very open to a variety of middle names.

My top favorites are Colette (but my husband has vetoed), Margot, Isla, and Louise or Louisa.

Do we go short and sweet like my husband suggests, or find something a little bit longer?
