    Just choose a name you love. I don't think that sibling names have to "go together" (which is completely subjective anyway) and most people outside of naming message boards probably don't even think about it.

    Another idea is to look at names from the same origin (french) if you'd like... But don't box yourself in. Make a huge list of names you like and are instantly drawn to as well. Don't over think- just add it to the list. See what names appeal and pick what you really love. I adore the name Annabelle and with her I can see Claire, Rose (or some variation), Vivian. Look for names from all origins as well- The Scottish variation of your DD is Annabel and so I think a Scottish name would go wonderfully with your Annabelle. Rory perhaps. Try searching names with meanings you like, what sounds good to your ears and give you a good feeling. I think Zoe is wonderful too. Have fun!

    thanks for all your input guys.I can understand where you are coming from and it is making me feel not so boxed in with names. ljandrl-thanks for the long list. There are a few I am considering. I just don't know how to know if I love a name. I think I might one day and
    then the next I'm out of love with it and moving on to something else I like. I feel like I really love Lily, but it is already in use in our
    family (although DH said we can still use it) and still pretty popular. Although I am not really as concerned about popularity as much as I was with DD because I understand the percentages better this time around. For a while after DD was born I kept crushing on the
    names Lucy, Caroline and Natalie and thought I would use one of them for another DD, but once I found out I was pregnant again so
    soon, I couldn't commit and made myself go back to square one so I wouldn't overlook any name, and once again put myself in mass
    confusion.Poor DH.... I make this such a hard process --it is a wonder why he even wants kids with me at all!
