With sister [name]Clementine[/name], I would probably go with [name]Tallulah[/name] as the full name. I have a fondness for [name]Lula[/name] and it’s what I would personally use, as it was my great grandmother’s given name. But in your case, [name]Tallulah[/name] seems to work better. [name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] is lovely!

I’d also pick the longer version to go with big sisters’ name. I know that as a child, I would have been jealous that my older sister had got more syllables in her name than me, haha:D Plus, [name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] is a great combo!

I see it both ways. Although [name]Clementine[/name] and [name]Tallulah[/name] are better balanced for length, I think the two names are kind equally matched in terms of vintage quirkiness, if anything [name]Lula[/name] may beat [name]Tallulah[/name] in that regard. I think the rhythm of [name]Lula[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] is mildly better than that of [name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name].

In the end [name]Lula[/name] mildly gets my vote, but I do think [name]Tallulah[/name] is fine.

Have you ruled out [name]Alula[/name], [name]Elula[/name], [name]Louisa[/name] nn [name]Lula[/name], etc?

All best!

I would go with [name]Tallulah[/name]. I honestly like [name]Tallulah[/name] more than just [name]Lula[/name], and I like that she would have the options of [name]Tallie[/name], [name]Allie[/name], [name]Lulu[/name], [name]Lu[/name]/[name]Lou[/name]/[name]Lucy[/name] with [name]Tallulah[/name], too. I think [name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] works wonderfully with [name]Clementine[/name]!

[name]Tallulah[/name] just sounds too cutesy to me, more like an endearing nickname than a real name. I also think that when you look at the whole name, [name]Lula[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name] are a much better match style-wise than [name]Tallulah[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name]. I really don’t see the problem of having [name]Lula[/name] and [name]Clementine[/name] together in a sibset, my name is three syllables (well, it could only have two depending on how you say it) and my brother and sister each only have two, and it has never been a problem.

I definitely vote for [name]Tallulah[/name], with the nn of [name]Lula[/name] if that’s what you desire. It just seems much more complete, especially with [name]Clementine[/name].
