    I think Iris works really well with Margaret/Margot and Edith/Edie. I don't think it's a huge deal if one sibling doesn't have a nickname. Otherwise I don't think you can go wrong with any of your choices. I'm leaning towards Dorothy "Dottie" from your other options, just because it feels a little more unexpected.

    I know a few people have mentioned Agnes as an alternative, and just as a word of caution you would have all three siblings from the Despicable Me / Minions franchise if you did so. In the correct order as well.

    Hi! I really Dorothy in your options. You girls have very dashing names I have some suggestions if you need more picks though:

    - Adelaide or Adeline: with the nickname Addie or Ada
    - Florence, Floriane or Flora: with the nickname Flo, Flossie, Florie...
    - Beatrice or Beatrix: She can be called Bee, Bea, Trish...
    - Emmeline: It's soft and quite unusual. Once again, I see many nicknames like Em, Emmy or Lee
    - Isabel or Isobel: with the nickname Izzy
    - Cecily: With the nickname Cece
    - Rosalie: With the nickname Roz or Rosie
    For girls: Roxane Amelia, Axelle Cora, Alma Vesper, Esther Marissa, Melisandre Ophelia, Melusine Lenore, Gabrielle Claudine, Cassandra Ivy, Gaia Zenobia, Alice Rosalind, Alva Lisandra, Cecily Rhea, Madeline Nuala, Cleo Celeste

    For boys: Gabriel Madigan, Oscar Cyrus, Oisin Finlay, Arthur Cael, Theodore Alaric, Darius Esteban, David Oberon, Elias Timothy, Adriel Lucian, Silas Beckett, Stellan Victor, Ulysses Abel, Virgil Octavian, Samuel Luke, Clement Alistair

    Beatrice/Beatrix nn Bea
    Caroline nn Carrie
    Annabel/Annabelle nn Annie or Belle
    Florence nn Flossie
    Victoria nn Tori

    Some other berries beat me to the suggestion of Catherine/Katherine nn Kitty - Margot, Edie, and Kitty sound like classic sisters if I've ever heard them!

    Dorothy Iris/Dot is also beautiful.

    What about Louise/Lou/Lulu? Margot, Edie, and Lou are adorable!
