    Sister for Eva, Josephine, & Annabel

    Expecting our 4th daughter in December! Names on our short list and some concerns:

    Emilia (too similar to Eva?)
    Sophia/Sophie (too popular and too similar to Josephine?)
    Eliza(same concern as Emilia?)
    Lily/Lillian(too popular)
    Violet
    Clara/Claire (love, but Annabel’s middle name is Claire)
    Margot (hubby doesn’t love)

    What are your thoughts on these names/ concerns and do you have any other recommendations? I really didn’t want to repeat an initial, but our current front runner is Emilia.

    Thanks!

    I don’t think Emilia is too close to Eva to use and the same goes for Sophie/Sophia with Josephine. In saying that, I understand you not wanting to repeat a starting letter with Emilia. My favourite names you’ve proposed are Violet, Margot and Clara, all of which I think suit your daughters’ names really well. Violet seems like the best choice as you’ve noted issues with the other two, although I personally don’t think Clara is unusable because of the use of Claire as a middle name for Annabel. Anyway for me Violet is the winner followed by Margot, then Clara. Lily/Lillian is also a good option, whilst for me Emilia and Sophie/Sophia are a little too common, and I’m not a fan of Eliza.

    Lillian is definitely my favorite for you!

    Emilia & Eliza - I don’t think they’re too close to Eva, but definitely understand not wanting to repeat letters.

    Sophia/Sophie - Yes, unfortunately, I think both of these are too close to Josephine’s name. On top of that, they just don’t feel as special as your girls names. Even though Eva, Josephine, and Annabel are all fairly common, they’ve retained something that Sophia/Sophie just hasn’t (IMO).

    Lily/Lillian - Lily is a very pretty name and I love it with your girls. However, I think LillianLily” is just a perfect fit!

    Violet - Very pretty! My second choice for you.

    Clara/Claire - As lovely as both of these are, I would take them off your list since Claire is A’s middle.

    Margot - Another lovely I would take off since your husband doesn’t love it.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions and comments so far. Please keep them coming! Glad to see most of you don’t think Eva and Emilia are too close.
    With front runners, Violet, Lillian, and Emilia, I would love some middle name ideas as well. For reference my other daughter are:
    Eva Jennifer
    Josephine Grace
    Annabel Claire

    Our last name is two syllables starting with P.
    Thanks

    Violet seems like the winner to me, as it’s the only one you don’t have concerns for! It’s a stunning name.
