I need a sister's name for Phoebe June...

I can’t decide what to name [name]Phoebe[/name]'s new little sister. I want it to be kind of old fashioned and I don’t want the first name to end with the “e” or “y” sound. Help! A name I’ve thought of is [name]Lucinda[/name] [name]Lark[/name] and my husband likes [name]Lottie[/name] [name]May[/name].

I think [name]Lucinda[/name] [name]Lark[/name] is kind of cutesy, but then I already feel it growing on me. Yeah, I have to say that it is very fun.

[name]Lottie[/name] [name]May[/name] is pretty, but I would lengthen [name]Lottie[/name] to [name]Charlotte[/name]. [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name], because [name]Phoebe[/name] is a classic name with roots whereas [name]Lottie[/name] is only a nickname for the more classic and regal [name]Charlotte[/name].

[name]Susan[/name] is a naming genius. [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name] is darling.

My first suggestion would be [name]Charlotte[/name] (even though I’m hoping this name doesn’t become uber-popular since I’m planning on using it). In fact, my combination is [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Mae[/name], which sounds exactly like your husband’s taste. :slight_smile: [name]Lottie[/name] is a very cute nn for [name]Charlotte[/name].

Other suggestions:
[name]Eliza[/name] (one of my favorites)

Good luck!!!

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]June[/name] is lovely!! [name]Lucinda[/name] is nice, too, and it goes well with [name]Phoebe[/name]. [name]Lottie[/name] is too cutesy for me-- what about [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name], nicknamed [name]Lottie[/name]? Here are some others that go well with [name]Phoebe[/name]:


[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]June[/name]? I love it!!! I also love [name]Susan[/name]'s suggestion of [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name], nn [name]Lottie[/name]. I think that [name]Lucinda[/name] [name]Lark[/name] is great!

More you may like:

[name]Harriet[/name] (nn [name]Hattie[/name], which reminds me of [name]Lottie[/name])
[name]Susannah[/name] (nn [name]Annie[/name])

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thank you, [name]Danielle[/name]! It’s just that I read name books often, and they say that [name]Lottie[/name] is a nn for [name]Charlotte[/name]. [name]Lottie[/name] is also a nn for [name]Carlotta[/name] and [name]Liselotte[/name].

[name]Love[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]June[/name]!

I like the suggestion of [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name], but here are some more:

    ** Like Very Much!
    *** [name]Love[/name]!

So, I’d choose [name]Iris[/name] if she were my baby girl, but I’d stay away from [name]May[/name] - then you’d have two month middle names. Maybe [name]Iris[/name] [name]Claire[/name], [name]Iris[/name] [name]Cate[/name], [name]Iris[/name] [name]Dove[/name], [name]Iris[/name] [name]Faye[/name], [name]Iris[/name] [name]Pearl[/name], or something - although it depends on whether or not you like [name]Iris[/name]…

Good luck!

I agree with [name]Lemon[/name] that something Greek would be perfect!
I love the suggestions of [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Iris[/name], [name]Cora[/name] and [name]Helena[/name].
I don’t think [name]Daphne[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] have been suggested or maybe [name]Sophia[/name] or [name]Elena[/name].
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]May[/name] or [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] would be lovely too :slight_smile:

[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is perfect. I have a daughter named [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Rose[/name], that also works. I love [name]Mae[/name] with anything.
