    Which one works best with Charlie?

    Jane Evangeline (Evie, bc we already have two Janes in the family)

    Jocelyn Rebecca (the only drawback is that her monogram would be jAr - nn Joss sounds too much like Josh, but Jocelyn feels heavy for a little girl)

    Raina Eleanor (Rae or Lena or no nickname at all)

    for another boy, I'm leaning toward Will.

    I vote for Jane Evangeline...it's a beautiful classic name and I like the nn Evie. Evangeline Jane would be great too!

    What pronunciation are you using: Evange-LEEN, Evange-LINE, e-VAN-gelinn? Because some of those work better with Jane than others. :)

    I would have to go with Jane Evangeline, its a classic name, so elegant and simple and a wonderful sister to Charlie.

    Jane Evangeline is quite lovely. Is there any specific reason why you have Jane in front when you intend to use Evie?

    Jocelyn is a masculine name to me, and so I struggle to picture it on a girl - perhaps Josephine, Josepha, Josette, Josiane or possibly Jocosa would appeal as a long form of Joss, or use another nickname eg Josie, Jo, Posy, Sephy for Josephine, Jock for Jocosa. Rebecca is a great middle name.

    Raina is alright - I very much see 'rain with an 'a' and prefer the Bulgarian name Rayna for that sound. Eleanor is a fantastic name, though I wouldn't place two '-a' sound ending names together - it's a little repetitive.

    To mix things up a bit - I like Jane Eleanor, Rebecca Evangeline, Evangeline Jane and Eleanor Josephine/Jocelyn.

    I like Jane Evangeline but also like the way it sounds when you switch them, Evangeline Jane. Just to throw an idea out, I knew an Evangelina and she went by Vangie. Very unusual, don't know if is your style, but another nn option is always good!

    I like Jane Evangeline best. It's beautifully classic, and it honors a family member while offering a fresh young nickname. It has my vote
