    Girly girl siblings!

    Dahlia is a definite for me if my fiancé and I have a girl. I could gush about why I love it all day, but I won't go on.

    While that one name is settled, I have a difficulty coming up with another girl name (planning for two kids) that I like even half as much. My admittedly picky criteria-

    1) Cannot end in an -ia, -ea, -ena, or -ina. I think something like "Leah and Mina" are too close for comfort for me.

    2) Has to sound feminine even next to Dahlia. This is where I run into a million issues, as this name is pretty frilly. I tend to think that unisex names don't work very well with this, unfortunately.

    3) Has to be easy to say. I have a speech complication, and Dahlia very easily rolls of my tongue. Names like Thea an Lila, while pretty, are unusable (double L's are a nightmare).

    My other criteria are no color names, not single syllable, and nothing too terribly popular (I'd prefer under 200 minimum). My style tends to err more modern, and my fiancé definitely has a preference fo modern.

    Any ideas?

    Gosh, Dahlia is such a beautiful name. My first thought was Carmen! Nameberry lists it as unisex, but I've always thought it to be the ultimate feminine name: Mysterious, rich, strong, and literary. Imagining Carmen and Dahlia as siblings makes me swoon a little bit! Other ideas:
    Paloma: This name has only gotten attention recently, and I like it with Dahlia just as much as I do Carmen. It means dove, is frilly without being cutesy, and sounds absolutely lovely next to Dahlia. Dahlia and Paloma.
    Opal- This is a little more spare than Dahlia, but still ultra-feminine and refined. The caveat: Is it a color name? I've always associated it with the gem, but is it too closely associated with a color?
    Flora
    Magnolia
    From previous suggesters:
    Gemma- Another one I love for you. I like the idea of a flower name and a jewel name together, and they are compatible in terms of popularity and sound, without being at all matchy.
    Freya
    Hope this was helpful!
