    Help complete a classic, traditional sibset (Girls' names)

    Now that we've got our choices for our first baby (mostly) settled, I'm already thinking ahead to future babies. We want four children, ideally two boys and two girls. If we get our wish, their names would almost certainly be William, Alexander, Catherine, and Elizabeth. For three boys and one girl: William, Alexander, Benjamin, and Catherine. And if all four are boys, the last one would probably be either Sebastian or Dominic. There are so many classic girls' names we love, though, I'm not sure what we would pick if we ended up with three or four daughters!

    Some of our current favorites:
    Penelope (Maybe not traditional enough, though?)
    Gwendolyn (Not quite sure if it goes either...)
    Madeleine (Sounds too similar to Catherine?)
    Eve (Maybe Evangeline so it doesn't seem so short next to the others.)

    If my own name wasn't Margaret, I would use it in a heartbeat for a third daughter. I really love Charlotte, but it rhymes a bit with Margaret. Theresa and Helena are also out because we already have nieces named Teresa and Elena. (Abigail, too.)

    So, which names would you pick to complete a classic, traditional sibset consisting of either William, Catherine, and Elizabeth or just Catherine and Elizabeth? Any other thoughts on the listed names, or any other suggestions? Thanks!
