    Name and nickname suggestions

    I'm looking for a name and nickname for a little sister that fits with the name and nickname of big sister Josephine/JoJo. Importantly, neither name should end in y/ie (just because of our last name). We are having a hard time agreeing. Husband loves Josephine for the sophisticated French feel. I love it for the sweet old fashioned feel. Thus, our lists for the new baby are pretty different. I'd love to get some fresh ideas. Before having a child I thought a nickname wasn't important to me, but somehow in our family a little person just ends up getting a little name. It's going to happen so I'd rather plan for it and have it flow with JoJo (but not another repeating syllable name). A shorter name with no nickname needed would be fine with me (currently adore Flora) but husband prefers longer names. Ideas?

    It's hard to think of nicknames that don't end in the y sound! Not sure if I'm on track, but maybe it will spark something:
    Amelia - Mia
    Loretta - Etta
    Margaret - Greta or Margo but not sure of JoJo and Margo together
    Eloise - French feel with vintage charm - could shorten to Ella or even Lola
    Gwendolyn or Gwyneth - Gwen (I have a Gwendolyn and considered Josephine for #2).
