    For Zelda's sister - your opinion on our shortlist?

    Context: We live in French-speaking Québec, my partner speaks Spanish and our daughters (will) have a Spanish last name, we speak French, Spanish and English at home.

    Our shortlist at the moment and their 'but's...

    Frida - the frontrunner at the moment, but I've always said I wouldn't give rhyming name to siblings... what do you think? is it cutesy? are they too similar?

    Sol - close second, but in the Spanish-speaking world, it's the nickname for Soledad, so I'm worried it would be seen as incomplete, thin. Also in French and English, it tends to be seen as more masculine.

    Lorelei - an old love of mine, but it doesn't quite flow as well in French as it does in English, which bugs me a bit.

    Juno - a new addition I can't get out of my head, but it would mean using the English pronunciation even when speaking French and Spanish to her - I always said I'd only choose names that could be seamlessly pronounced in our 3 languages.

    Winifred - another newbie. I love it and surprisingly so does my partner, but like Lorelei it doesn't flow quite as well in French.

    Feel free to make suggestions if our list inspires you.

    Thank you!

    I love Sol and Juno! Frida might be too similar with sister Zelda but I do like it. Sol, Juno, and Lorelei all go the best with Zelda. Again, Frida is too close in my opinion and I think Winifred is too different from Zelda.

    I really like Frida with Zelda! Even though they both end in the "da" sound, the beginning sounds are so different that the names feel very distinctive to my ears.

    Hello, and congrats! My favorite, hands down, is Frida. I don't think it's frilly at all: I find it strong, distinctive, and artistic.

    Soleil: This was my first thought for you. Sol is the first syllable, which has a really bold, dynamic sound. However, you have a preference for longer names, and this one adds a syllable that reminds me a lot of Lorelei.
