The only ones I could think of off the top of my head, but they’re over 7 letters:
[name]Gabriella[/name]- [name]Gabby[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name]- [name]Izzy[/name]

Quite tough! [name]How[/name] about…

[name]Felicia[/name] (nn Lissy)
[name]Genevra[/name] (nn [name]Ginny[/name])
[name]India[/name] (nn [name]Izzy[/name])

And i like [name]Poppy[/name]… not sure with what full name.

[name]Tabby[/name]- [name]Tabitha[/name]
[name]Jenny[/name]- [name]Geneva[/name]
[name]Tilly[/name]- [name]Matilda[/name] (too close to [name]Milly[/name]?)
[name]Sissy[/name]- [name]Cecilia[/name] (too close to Sassy?)
[name]Cammy[/name]- [name]Camilla[/name]
[name]Ginny[/name]- [name]Virginia[/name]

[name]Tabitha[/name] nn [name]Tibby[/name] - I much prefer [name]Tibby[/name] over [name]Tabby[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] nn [name]Libby[/name]
[name]Tamara[/name] nn [name]Tammy[/name]
[name]Dorothy[/name] (doesn’t end in a) or [name]Dorothea[/name] (too many letters) nn [name]Dotty[/name] - [name]Dotty[/name] is so cute I thought you might overlook rule breaking :slight_smile:
[name]Olivia[/name] - [name]Livvy[/name]
[name]Emilia[/name] - [name]Emmy[/name] - [name]Emmy[/name] fits but [name]Emilia[/name] doesn’t sound good as [name]Milla[/name]'s sister

I’ll keep thinking

Some great suggestions…[name]Emilia[/name] would be ideal, European sounding and [name]Emmy[/name] is so cute but too similar to [name]Milla[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]Tilly[/name] too but rhymes with [name]Milly[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]India[/name] but [name]Izzy[/name] too common. [name]Love[/name] [name]Livvy[/name] but [name]Olivia[/name] too common. [name]Tamara[/name] is interesting but might end up as [name]Mara[/name] which is to similar to [name]Milla[/name]. [name]Dotty[/name] is sweet too, but still looking for something that ends in a.

I like [name]Emmy[/name] too. Maybe for [name]Gemma[/name]? I feel like I am on a mission now! :slight_smile:

Just saw gwensmom’s post about Dahlia. Love Dolly for a nn!

I doubt [name]Tamara[/name] would end up as [name]Mara[/name] if you prefer and use [name]Tammy[/name]. To me, [name]Tammy[/name] isn’t as nice as Sassy and [name]Milly[/name] though. I thought of some more!

[name]Alyssa[/name] nn Lissy (I’ve never really liked Lissy but many do)
[name]Nicola[/name] nn [name]Nikky[/name]
[name]Dahlia[/name] nn [name]Dolly[/name] or Dally. I love [name]Dahlia[/name] with [name]Saskia[/name] and [name]Milla[/name] but not sure about nn for this one

Hmmm, [name]Gemma[/name] nn [name]Emmy[/name] is very cute! Onto the list. Sadly, my god daughter is [name]Dahlia[/name] so can’t use that one. [name]Nikky[/name] is not really my style but [name]Alyssa[/name] nn Lissy could work…Keep them coming…

[name]Linny[/name]- [name]Linnea[/name]- Pronounced Li-NAY-ah apparently, but I like [name]LINN[/name]-ee-ah.

[name]Thalia[/name] nn [name]Tally[/name]

[name]Harriet[/name], [name]Imogen[/name], [name]Penelope[/name], [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Saffron[/name] all have lovely ‘y’ nicknames but obviously don’t fit the ‘a’ theme.

Oops… [name]Imogen[/name] just seemed to match [name]Saskia[/name] and [name]Milla[/name], but it doesn’t have an ‘a’ ending. Still like it though [name]Imogen[/name] [name]Skye[/name].

[name]How[/name] about these ‘a’ ending options? My favourites have a *

Am still yet to find the perfect 5,6,7 letter name ending in a that can be shortened to a double letter y name.

So our front running name is still [name]Giselle nn Gigi[/name] (mn Eve or Fleur), despite the fact that I’m not sure that it matches perfectly with her older twin sisters name’s - [name]Saskia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Milla[/name] [name]Rose[/name].

WDYT does the name [name]Giselle[/name] (probably mn [name]Eve[/name] or [name]Fleur[/name]) match with her sibling names or should I try to love some other names that I like but which seem to match the sibling names better? [name]Love[/name] [name]Rosetta[/name] nn [name]Rosie[/name] but already have [name]Milla[/name] [name]Rose[/name]. Grrr.

Other possible names that we are considering are:
[name]Katya[/name] nn [name]Kitty[/name]
Tallulah nn [name]Tully[/name] but is it a stretch?
[name]Azalea[/name] nn Azzy or Zayly (best spelling?)
[name]Arietta[/name] nn [name]Etty[/name] or [name]Etta[/name]
[name]Alessia[/name] nn [name]Lessy[/name]
[name]Imogen[/name] nn [name]Immy[/name]
[name]Aneska[/name] nn [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Winona[/name] nn [name]Winny[/name]
[name]Emelia[/name] nn [name]Emmy[/name]
Raina nn Rainy

Please give us some feedback/suggestions as we just seem to be going round in circles.


I like [name]Gemma[/name] but with the nn [name]Gemmy[/name]!

[name]Danica[/name]- [name]Danny[/name]
[name]Annika[/name]- [name]Annie[/name]
[name]Eleanora[/name]- [name]Lenny[/name]

This has been quite challenging, unexpectedly so. I did my best not to “reuse” the vowels “a” from [name]Saskia[/name] and “i” from [name]Milla[/name], and likewise not to “reuse” the consonants “ss” from Sassy and “ll” from [name]Milly[/name]. That left the vowels e,o, and u. So, here goes:

Bessea, nn [name]Bessy[/name]
[name]Alberta[/name], nn [name]Berry[/name]
Sunniva, nn [name]Sunny[/name] (Though that’s another “s”)
[name]Flora[/name], nn [name]Flossy[/name]
[name]Bonita[/name], nn [name]Bonny[/name]
[name]Bettina[/name], nn [name]Betty[/name]
[name]Hedda[/name], nn [name]Heddy[/name]
Lyrica, nn [name]Rikky[/name]
Rozenna, nn Zenny
[name]Paulina[/name], nn [name]Polly[/name]
[name]Jenna[/name], nn [name]Jenny[/name]
[name]Calla[/name], nn [name]Cally[/name]
[name]Timothea[/name], nn [name]Timmy[/name] (getting further out on a limb)

I guess I like [name]Bonita[/name] [name]Fleur[/name] ([name]Bonny[/name]) the best with the sisters, followed by [name]Flora[/name] [name]Skye[/name] ([name]Flossy[/name]).

I don’t know if this has been mentioned yet, but what about [name]Helena[/name] with the nickname Leny?
Other suggestions
[name]Aurora[/name]- [name]Rory[/name]
[name]Savanna[/name]-Savy/[name]Anny[/name] (might be to close to Sassy)
[name]Eliza[/name]- [name]Lizy[/name]/[name]Elly[/name]
[name]Annika[/name]- [name]Anny[/name]
[name]Alaia[/name]- [name]Ally[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name]- [name]Libby[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name]- [name]Amy[/name]
[name]Alexia[/name]- [name]Lexy[/name]
[name]Raina[/name]- [name]Rainy[/name]
[name]Stella[/name]- [name]Elly[/name]
[name]Gianna[/name]- [name]Anny[/name]
[name]Lucia[/name]- [name]Lucy[/name]
[name]Delila[/name]- [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Ariana[/name]- [name]Ary[/name]

Thats all that I could think of. [name]Hope[/name] that I could help!

[name]Viviana[/name], nn Vivvy?

I like [name]Annie[/name] as a nickname with your others, even though it doesn’t end in Y. It could be short for many names that include “[name]Ann[/name]” or end in “ana” or “anna.”

bancios Can I point out something? If you follow the same pattern as the twins then what happens if you have another daughter? or even more TWINS! I suggest thinking outside the pattern. I suggested [name]Imogen[/name] as I think it has the same feel and spunk as [name]Milla[/name] and [name]Saskia[/name]. All have the “double” with a “y” nn. I don’t think you need to tie the new sister so heavily with the twins, she is her own unique person.
I do like [name]Tallulah[/name] with [name]Saskia[/name] and [name]Milla[/name] too- nn [name]Tully[/name] or [name]Tally[/name]. [name]Lulu[/name] is also adorable. Sassy, [name]Millie[/name] and [name]Lulu[/name] sound so gorgeous together! Giving the twins their twin link, yet enough familiarity to let the new DD be her own person.
