    Sister for Leila?

    My husband and I are coming up with names, and are stuck on girls. For boys we have Aidan and Colin, and for girls we love the name Leila. However, we can't come up with any other girls names that we like that would sound good with Leila... He loves Emma but I'm not sold. Any suggestions? We prefer 2 syllable names.

    Re: Sister for Leila?

    Hi there, and welcome to nameberry! You've picked out some lovely names. I really love Colin and Leila, and Aiden's nice, but very, very popular.

    Emma's great name, too, but it's also extremely popular. Have you considered Emmeline or Amelia in its place?

    Some more ideas to go with Leila:
    Esme
    Simone
    Ruby
    Charlotte
    Cecile
    Clara
    Daphne
    Delphine
    Eva
    Frances
    Georgia
    Lucy
    Phoebe
    Scarlett
    Sasha
    Tamsin
    Tessa
    Willa
    Camille

    Some more (three syllables):
    Beatrix
    Francesca
    Elodie
    Genevieve
    Cassandra
    Juliet
    Miranda
    Vivienne
    Viviana
    Emmeline

    Boys:
    Cullen
    Callum
    Finnegan
    Joseph
    Quinlen
    Declan
    Ronan
    Dashiell
    Oliver
    Henry

    Best wishes to you! :-)

    What great suggestions! We love Charlotte, but are struggling to find a good mn. He suggested Olivia [after a close family friend] but this won't work because her initials will be C-O-K... yikes! Our last name is one syllable, so we'd prefer if Charlotte's middle name could be three.

    I like Charlotte! I also like Jill's suggestion of Esme to go with Leila.
    Middle names to go with Charlotte:

    Charlotte Genevieve
    Charlotte Francesca (that one is kind of difficult for to say over and over, but I like it and it may be eaisier for you)
    Charlotte Georgiana
    Charlotte Cecily
    Charlotte Caroline
    Charlotte Beatrix/Beatrice
    Charlotte Matilda
    Charlotte Delaney
    Charlotte Victoria
    Charlotte Louise
    Charlotte Jane
    Charlotte Penelope
    Charlotte Josephine
    Charlotte Avalon
    Charlotte Estelle
    Charlotte Susanne

    Hope it helped! Sorry for any repeats!

    You are all so totally brilliant! Every time I look through the boards, I'm completely bowled over by all the fantastic ideas and by their range and generosity. I love the three syllable middle name suggestions with Charlotte, especially given a one-syllable last name. And perhaps with Leila, another three syllable middle name NOT starting with a vowel would be good. I agree on Aiden and Emma being too popular.
