2nd & 3rd Daughters

We are having identical girl twins, they have a big sister 13 month old [name]Isabella[/name] [name]Adelina[/name] (we call her [name]Leelee[/name]). [name]Leelee[/name] was named for my mother (isabelle) and my mother in law (adeline) Our last name is three syllables and ends in an “a”.
Right now we are STUMPED for names.
My husband likes:
[name]Arabella[/name], [name]Estella[/name], [name]Stella[/name], [name]Ana[/name]-[name]Chiara[/name], [name]Ellice[/name] (ellis). He does not think that middle names need to “go” with first names, I do. We also need to have a cute non-obvious nickname (like leelee, in france and italy that is not an uncommon nickname for isabella)

I think it is very important to have the flow right when making up a combination.

[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Adelina[/name] and

These two fn’s are popular

[name]Sophia[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]


[name]Angelina[/name] [name]Hope[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]

[name]Estella[/name], stella and arabella r too similar to isabelle. What about penelope jane/grace nn poppy, maragrite nn maisy or tallulah/louisa nn lulu.Recently in the girls name section there was a whole list of girls names w cute nn names. Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestions!
We have been hard at work this evening (we made a rule we were only allowed to shout out names in pairs, no “what’d you think of X”)
Here is what we have
[name]Colette[/name] [name]Regan[/name] & [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Keenan[/name] (nn:coco and lettie)

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] & [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Colette[/name] (nn: [name]Gigi[/name] (zheezhee) or [name]Evie[/name] can’t pick and [name]Jojo[/name]) - not 100% on the middles for this one.

[name]Mia[/name] [name]Cristina[/name]
[name]Ava[/name] [name]Marlena[/name]
not LOVING the short first names since we have an [name]Isabella[/name]

[name]Audrey[/name] ???
[name]Lana[/name] ???

Any thoughts?

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Colette[/name]. They might be a little too close in sound, though-- and I definitely wouldn’t do [name]Gigi[/name] and [name]Jojo[/name]. I like [name]Colette[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name], too, but again, they’re similar in sound. [name]Mia[/name] and [name]Ava[/name] both are very popular, so you might want to stay away from those. [name]Audrey[/name] is nice; I don’t like [name]Lana[/name] much. Also, another nickname I like for [name]Genevieve[/name] is [name]Vivi[/name].

Mixing up the combos:

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Marlena[/name] and [name]Audrey[/name] [name]Colette[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Colette[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name] [name]Ava[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Mia[/name]

my husband now doesn’t like the middle name [name]Keenan[/name] (my mom’s maiden name) for [name]Juliet[/name]'s middle name so we have nothing there either.

I, too, [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Josephine[/name]! :slight_smile:

Some more you may like (I agree with [name]Meryl[/name] that all -belle-bella names are too similar to [name]Isabella[/name]):

[name]Clementine[/name] (nn [name]Cleo[/name])
[name]Theodora[/name] (nn [name]Thea[/name])

Good luck! :slight_smile:

If you chose [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] I would be in seventh heaven. So beautiful.

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Carolina[/name]

Unisex combo

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Sinclair[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Harper[/name]

I’m going to agree with the above posters ans say that names ending in -ella are to close/matchy with [name]Isabella[/name].

[name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Josephine[/name] are amazing!
Also love [name]Rollo[/name]'s suggestion of [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name].

[name]Isabella[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name], and [name]Josephine[/name]. - also nn for [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Josie[/name] and [name]Posy[/name].
[name]Isabella[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name], and [name]Juliet[/name] - could nn [name]Jules[/name]. [name]Leelee[/name], [name]Gigi[/name] and [name]Jules[/name] or even Juju

[name]Arabella[/name], [name]Estella[/name] and [name]Stella[/name] are way to close to [name]Isabella[/name] to sound really great together. I would propose something with a different name ending but still with teh same style as your daughter’s name.
Something like [name]Lily[/name], [name]Grace[/name], [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Kalliope[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Christelle[/name], [name]Chiara[/name], [name]Lina[/name], [name]Selene[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] would flow better with [name]Isabella[/name] I think.
