Thank you for some really great suggestions! It is such a weird coincidence that you happened to suggest “[name]Marjorie[/name]” which inspired the “-ie” trend. [name]Marjorie[/name] is my grandmother’s name and I combined her mother’s name “[name]Evalyn[/name]” with her name “[name]Marjorie[/name] [name]Lou[/name]” to get “Evalie [name]Lou[/name]” in honor of her.
Oh, if you like the repetition of L and V, you might want to use [name]Ivie[/name] or [name]Valerie[/name], both of which sound excellent with Evalie and [name]Sylvie[/name] - really cute names, by the way! [name]Do[/name] your girls always go by their full names?[/quote]
We call Evalie short forms like [name]Evie[/name] or [name]Eve[/name] on occasion. She calls her sister “[name]Silly[/name]” but we don’t really shorten [name]Sylvie[/name]. I may have to abandon the l’s and v’s just to get some differentiation.
