A sister for James and Violet?

Help! I am due soon and I need to think of a name that goes with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] for our new baby girl. I need new suggestions as well as coordinating middle names…
Here are some names that we like:
[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name]?)
[name]Mary[/name] (maybe a hyphenated [name]Mary[/name] name?)
[name]Lilac[/name] (Too much with [name]Violet[/name]?)

Of all the names you mentioned, I have some ideas:

[name]Amelia[/name] or [name]Emily[/name] or [name]Amelie[/name]
[name]Mary[/name]-[name]Kate[/name] or [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Grace[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name] or [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Lila[/name], not [name]Lilac[/name]

[name]Winter[/name]: I quite like this name either as a first or middle. [name]Win[/name] or [name]Winnie[/name] would be cute nn’s too
[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name]?): love [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name]: very pretty
[name]Lucy[/name]: I find this name adorable.pairs very well with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name].
[name]Mary[/name] : I like your idea of a hypenated name with [name]Mary[/name]…
[name]Genevieve[/name]: pretty.
[name]Eloise[/name]: lovely
[name]Lilac[/name] : pretty. maybe a bit matchy? but still works…
My favorites are [name]Lucy[/name] or [name]Winter[/name] paired with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name]
you have great taste (:

I like [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name]!

[name]Winter[/name] - Maybe a middle name

[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name]?) – Nice

[name]Evangeline[/name] – Nice, nn [name]Eva[/name]

[name]Lucy[/name] – Cute and goes well with sibset

[name]Mary[/name] (maybe a hyphenated [name]Mary[/name] name?) - [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Jane[/name], [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Lois[/name], [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Lee[/name], [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Louisa[/name]?

[name]Genevieve[/name] – Beautiful! Fine with sibset.

[name]Eloise[/name] – Okay, but not a favorite

[name]Lilac[/name] (Too much with [name]Violet[/name]?) - I think it would become a tongue-twister with [name]Violet[/name].

New suggestions: [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Iris[/name]

You’re off to a good start!

I really like [name]James[/name], [name]Violet[/name] and:
What about: [name]Rosalie[/name], [name]Liliana[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Cordelia[/name], [name]Bridget[/name], [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Nora[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Leonor[/name], [name]Claire[/name]…


[name]Winter[/name]: too unisex (and a little trendy feeling) to fit in with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name].
[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name]?): very nice, my second choice
[name]Evangeline[/name]: I like this name, but it just doesn’t feel right with your othe kids. A little too long?
[name]Lucy[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] this, and I think it is just perfect with the lovely [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name].
[name]Mary[/name]: not my favorite name. I really like [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Frances[/name] though…
[name]Genevieve[/name]: see [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name]: ditto
[name]Lilac[/name]: kind of a tongue twister (and a little theme-y) with [name]Violet[/name].

So, I think [name]Lucy[/name] is a great choice, [name]Amelia[/name] in second. However, I love all the name you have here–you really have great taste!
Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Winter[/name]: I think it would make a great middle…
[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name]?): I think this is great, and I love the [name]Millie[/name] nickname!
[name]Evangeline[/name]: I think that [name]Evangeline[/name] is gorgeous, too.
[name]Lucy[/name]: I love it…
[name]Mary[/name] (maybe a hyphenated [name]Mary[/name] name?): I think [name]Mary[/name] is wonderful…
[name]Genevieve[/name]: I love it, but I wonder if it’s too much V with [name]Violet[/name].
[name]Eloise[/name]: I love this, too!
[name]Lilac[/name] (Too much with [name]Violet[/name]?): To me, yeah, it’s a bit much with [name]Violet[/name]. I can see it as a middle, though!

I would put [name]Mary[/name] or a variant in the middle name position.

What kind of vibe do you want?

Spunky vibe [name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]

Classic vibe [name]Eloise[/name], ladylike

Strong, feminine, trendy, vintage vibe


[name]Unique[/name] vibe

[name]Lilia[/name] because [name]Lilac[/name] is too much like [name]Violet[/name]

Cheeky, free spirit vibe


[name]Winter[/name] - A little too different from [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] but could be a good middle.

[name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Millie[/name])- [name]Amelia[/name] with the nn [name]Millie[/name] is one of my favourite girls names and think it’s the best with siblings

[name]Evangeline[/name] - Prefer [name]Eva[/name]

[name]Lucy[/name]- [name]Love[/name] with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name]

[name]Mary[/name]- ([name]Mary[/name]-[name]Agnes[/name] popped to mind) but don’t see it that well with siblings

[name]Genevieve[/name]- [name]Love[/name], also love the nn [name]Evie[/name]/[name]Eve[/name]/[name]Ginny[/name]

[name]Eloise[/name]- Goes well

[name]Lilac[/name]- Too much with [name]Violet[/name], I like [name]Lila[/name]/[name]Lilah[/name] but it is trendy

My picks from your list are [name]Amelia[/name] first, followed by [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]Eloise[/name].
Some other names to go with [name]James[/name] and [name]Violet[/name];
[name]Abigail[/name] ([name]Abby[/name])
[name]Madeleine[/name] ([name]Maddie[/name])

This was so helpful! I love the suggestion of [name]Mary[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]!
