Baby sister for Olivia - need name help!

We are due with our second baby girl at the end of [name_u]December[/name_u] and having the hardest time picking out a name. We like the names [name_f]Elinor[/name_f], [name_f]Emma[/name_f] and [name_f]Elora[/name_f] but not quite set on any of them (they all just so happen to start with an E— there is no significance to this haha).

Our first daughter’s name is [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_u]Rayne[/name_u] and we have a pretty lengthy last name that starts with a “B.” We’re trying to find a sweet, classic name that is not overly used with an outdoorsy middle name. I love the middle name “Ridge,” but open to just about anything at this point.

Please let me know what you think of the names above (honest opinions please) and if you have any other name suggestions. Throw anything at me I am open to all suggestions and opinions! :slight_smile:

I think [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] is an interesting middle name and my only concern with it would be that her name would sound like a geographical landmark. Not the worst association, but wanted to point it out. Of the other three names you’re liking, I like [name_f]Elora[/name_f]! [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] and [name_f]Emma[/name_f] are both nice, but pretty common and you said you didn’t want anything overly used.

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] is a great name, but I think it’s a bit expected as a sister name for [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]. [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] and [name_f]Elora[/name_f] are nice alternatives. Would you consider [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]?

I’d also suggest these for you, based on your apparent style:
[name_f]Anya[/name_f] or [name_f]Annika[/name_f]

[name_f]Elinor[/name_f] is my favorite–Olivia and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] are fabulous together! [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] is pretty cool, although I like [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] better visually? It’s probably my own idiosyncrasies, lol, but I think [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] with [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] just looks a bit “I” heavy.

[name_m]Ridge[/name_m] is pretty cool mn! I personally would avoid [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] bc it does look a bit R heavy, and [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is a bit too popular and expected. I think [name_f]Elora[/name_f] [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] would be my choice.

I absolutely love Elinor,it’s so underrated and goes so well with [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]!
I really like [name_f]Emma[/name_f] and [name_f]Elora[/name_f] , but I personally think that [name_f]Elora[/name_f] is too unique and [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is too expected to go with [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_u]Rayne[/name_u] is pretty. I find [name_m]Ridge[/name_m] a bit masculine, but it could be cool in the mn spot w/a fancy feminine fn like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f].

Here are my thoughts on what you’ve got so far:

Elinor-I love it, but really do prefer [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]. It just feels like that’s the more known spelling, & looks classier to me. I feel like it’s a bit more of a bold feminine name whereas [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] is more of a romantic feminine name, but it doesn’t not go.

Emma-Nice name. It’s pleasant & vintage & grows up well. It’s obviously way popular, but maybe that doesn’t bother you. I don’t think that it really sparkles that much, but again, it’s totally fine.

Elora-This is definitely my favorite. I may like [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] (or Eleanor) slightly more in general, but [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] & [name_f]Elora[/name_f] are so lovely for sisters. Plus, it’s the most refreshing of the bunch.

A few more ideas that I’d pair w/big sis [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] are…










[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

All three are pretty, but if your looking for an uncommon name, then I’d go with [name_f]Elora[/name_f].

Thank you! Your insight is very helpful! [name_f]Elora[/name_f] is definitely my favorite because it’s a little more refreshing and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] is my hubby’s favorite so hopefully we can find something that meets in the middle lol

I would pick [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and [name_f]Julia[/name_f]! They sound good together but [name_f]Julia[/name_f] is not in the top 100 right now and I think it would be a nice contrast to the popular [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] (which I think is a lovely name by the way ) :slight_smile:

Seeing as you said you liked [name_f]Elora[/name_f] best and your hubby liked [name_f]Elinor[/name_f], could you go with the crossover of Elinora?
