I love Antigone but who in the world could be her sister?

Hello!

I have loved [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] for so long now I’ve written more about her a few times to mixed review… But now that [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] is becoming more and more popular on NB (for better or worse :zipper_mouth_face: ) I was thinking I may get different answers.

background on [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] + my love for her

I love it enough that I’m not hesitant about whether people will be able to spell or pronounce the name. [name_f]My[/name_f] issue is that [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] is so brave and bright and storied that I can’t quite imagine a sister for her. I’m all for sibsets not matching, but I would love for them to at least be on the same wavelength.
([name_f]Antigone[/name_f] goes fairly well with my boy names, so I’m not as concerned there) [name_f]Every[/name_f] time I try to envision a sister’s name it always gets too matchy ([name_f]Antigone[/name_f] & [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]) or not matchy enough ([name_f]Antigone[/name_f] & [name_f]Jane[/name_f]).

I don’t necessarily need reassurance on [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] or a perusal of my lists to pick out which would work best with [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] - Basically:

  1. What names (whether “my style” or not) would you imagine as [name_f]Antigone[/name_f]’s sister?
    1a. How much could I get away with on a sister name for [name_f]Antigone[/name_f]? ([name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to tangentialize)

Hope this makes sense, thank you in advance to anyone who can translate my rambles into meaningful suggestions haha

First of all, [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] is wonderful, and I also loved the character!

With a sister to [name_f]Antigone[/name_f], I think style doesn’t have to match as much as I think length does, which is why [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Jane[/name_f] feels so off.

From your UC, I like…
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Francesca[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Isadora[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f]

But for more inspiration…
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Gisela[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Euphrasie[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Violetta[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_u]Hyacinth[/name_u]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Margarethe[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Philomena[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Lilibet[/name_f]
[name_f]Antigone[/name_f] and [name_f]Celandine[/name_f]

Antigone is beautiful!

Here is what I thought of off the top of my head:

Atalanta
[name_f]Camilla[/name_f]
[name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Artemisia[/name_f]
[name_f]Apolline[/name_f]
[name_f]Apollonia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cassiopeia[/name_f]
[name_u]Calypso[/name_u]
[name_f]Freya[/name_f]
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f]
[name_f]Diana[/name_f]
[name_f]Bellatrix[/name_f]

I know [name_f]Bellatrix[/name_f] is controversial because of the character in [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m]; but its such a gorgeous name! And since you are not afraid of what people may say about [name_f]Antigone[/name_f], maybe this will work for you also.

Hope this helps :slightly_smiling_face:

oh my gosh :sob::sob::sob::sob:

Antigone is amazing and has an awesome namesake (the mythology [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] was bad@ss). I think you can name her sister whatever you want. I would personally prefer something equally spunky and unusual.

Beatrix

Haha, I had some fun with it! :laughing:

I think [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] is so magical.

You’ve had tons of suggestions so count any repeats as me being in agreement with the rest of the berries.

My immediate thought was [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] & [name_f]Calliope[/name_f]. But maybe that’s too matchy? I just really like the idea of [name_f]Antigone[/name_f] & [name_f]Calliope[/name_f] it’s so sweet.
