Brief Plot: A mans second son makes a horrendous financial blunder, costing his family their livelihood. He enlists in the army, and his widowed father, sisters, and half sister relocate to [name_f]Scotland[/name_f].

Names of Current Characters: [name_m]Septimus[/name_m], [name_f]Agnes[/name_f], [name_f]Julia[/name_f], [name_f]Hester[/name_f], [name_m]Basil[/name_m], [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f], [name_m]Nigel[/name_m], [name_m]Victor[/name_m], [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_f]Harriet[/name_f], [name_f]Ada[/name_f], [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] (to name a few.)

Character Description:
[name_f]Sister[/name_f] (a)- youngest daughter of [name_m]Septimus[/name_m] and his first wife. Large blue eyes and curling auburn hair, she is the spitting image of her mother. Dies at age 5 of a fever. [name_m]Born[/name_m] around 1839/1840
[name_f]Sister[/name_f] (b)- the only child of [name_m]Septimus[/name_m] and his second wife, [name_f]Julia[/name_f]. [name_m]Born[/name_m] around 1847. Adored by her half siblings, and coddled after the loss of her mother in 1851. Very sweet and naive. Looks like a rose- very pink and pretty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My guilty pleasure name is [name_f]Sybil[/name_f]. I think it kind of fits your name theme here. :slight_smile: Also, my daughter’s name is [name_f]Elsie[/name_f]. That could work as well. :slight_smile:

Hey, I quick searched [name_f]Hester[/name_f] and found this blog - Cool Names | Nameberry

Here are mu favorites -


I also like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f].

a - [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] or [name_f]Thisbe[/name_f]

b - [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] or [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]

Thanks for the replies guys!
@Jnikki0587- I really like [name_f]Sybil[/name_f], but I’m not entirely sure if it fits either daughter. [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] is darling as well, but again, I’m not sure if it fits.
@calypsotheoneandonly- I really like [name_f]Constance[/name_f], [name_f]Edith[/name_f], and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] from your list. The only thing holding me back from really loving [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] for one of the daughters is the fact that [name_f]Agnes[/name_f]’ middle name is [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f].
@yeahbabyirock- I’m really liking [name_f]Mabel[/name_f]. The other names are lovely, but I don’t think they fit with the other names.
