    I am trying to come up with a girls name (first and middle) to go with her sister Elizabeth Maren (nickname Libby)

    Suggestions welcome!

    We chose Eleanor "Nora" as a sister to our Elizabeth "Libby", but here are some other ideas:

    Adelaide "Daisy"
    Beatrice "Bea"
    Margaret "Margot / Maisie / Daisy / Maggie"
    Matilda "Tillie" -- and I toyed with the idea of calling a Matilda "Maisie"
    Louisa "Lulu" -- if you don't think Libby and Lulu are too much together

    You have to decide if you have strong preferences as to initials, ending sounds, etc. This will help start to narrow the field...

    In our case, we didn't mind two Es since the nicknames were L and N. It was more important to us to get away from more -ee nicknames after having a Libby and a Charlie. We did decide Libby and Lulu were too matchy, but I kind of like them together at the same time. ;-) But Libby and Lily are definitely too close IMO, so I'd avoid that.

    Elizabeth Coralie "Libby" - 11.15
    Charles Alexander "Charlie" - 11.15
    Eleanor Iris "Nora" - 8.17
    Magnus George "Gus" - 8.18

    Margaret/Margot/Greta
    I like that Margaret would give you some nickname options that do not end in the “ee “ sound. But maybe Margaret and Elizabeth sound like a very specific part of recent-ish British history?
    Winifred/Winnie/Freddie
    Felicity/Fliss/Flicka/Flossy
    Matilda/Tilda
