Sib names help

Hello! In the last few weeks my partner and I have done some narrowing down. Our daughter [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] (often [name_u]Josie[/name_u]) will have a sister soon. Her middle name is [name_f]Nina[/name_f] (it’s pronounced Nine-ah, not Nee-nah…family name). We are leaning one direction but I wanted some more feedback on the sib set pairing. Our biggest barrier has been that I can’t get past needing a long and short name option (like our oldest has). Names we’ve loved like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] I just can’t find something longer I love. I’m wondering about the possibly increasing popularity of [name_f]Margo[/name_f] in particular, that makes me a little unsure but I keep coming back to it.

Middle name options are family: [name_f]Mary[/name_f], [name_f]Martha[/name_f], or [name_f]Diane[/name_f]. I’m listing favorite pairings but open to feedback!

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Nina[/name_f] ([name_u]Josie[/name_u]) and…

[name_f]Margo[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]) - initially I wasn’t keen on the alliteration but I actually am finding I like this, and feel it ties in [name_f]Mae[/name_f].
[name_f]Margo[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f])
[name_f]Marietta[/name_f] _____. (nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f])
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] (nn [name_u]Remy[/name_u])
[name_f]Coretta[/name_f] ______ (nn [name_f]Cora[/name_f])

Thanks in advance for your input!

[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] gets my vote! There are so many great nn options! [name_f]Marietta[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] would also be beautiful!

Hmm this is tough because every name option is great! But here are my thoughts. With [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f], I feel like stylistically it goes really well, but my first thought was “[name_f]Rosie[/name_f] and [name_u]Josie[/name_u]!” I know you have nn [name_u]Remy[/name_u] listed there (so cute!) so you would just tell people that, and it wouldn’t be a problem, but I just thought I’d point that out.

I also love [name_f]Mae[/name_f] with [name_u]Josie[/name_u], but I’m not sure which combo. I probably like [name_f]Margo[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] best of the 3 [name_f]Margo[/name_f] combos. I also really like [name_f]Marietta[/name_f] but it’s such a pretty name I wouldn’t want to use a nickname for!

Finally, I think my vote goes to [name_f]Coretta[/name_f] nn [name_f]Cora[/name_f]. It has the most intuitive nickname (which is not the most important thing, but), just like [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] nn [name_u]Josie[/name_u]. I would pair it with the middle [name_f]Maryanne[/name_f] (or any spelling you prefer). [name_f]Coretta[/name_f] [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] combines [name_f]Mary[/name_f] (and arguably [name_f]Martha[/name_f]!) and [name_f]Diane[/name_f]. She could even also have the nickname “[name_f]Mae[/name_f]” from that! If you wouldn’t want to combine honor names then my next favorite is [name_f]Coretta[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f]. Good luck! Any of the names you listed would be winners! :slight_smile:

Really love [name_f]Marietta[/name_f] ! And really like the sibling set. [name_f]My[/name_f] preference would have been [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] but I wouldn’t be able to get past [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] and [name_u]Josie[/name_u] (even though I would have never thought of that until it was pointed out)

[name_f]Marietta[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] Is darling !

I like [name_f]Margo[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]. [name_f]Coretta[/name_f] and [name_f]Marietta[/name_f] are a little too old sounding to me. [name_f]Margo[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] is my favorite from your list. For [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] I really like [name_u]Romy[/name_u] as a nickname.

A few suggestions:

Corinne [name_f]Martha[/name_f] nn [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_f]Coraline[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] nn [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_f]Marielle[/name_f] [name_f]Martha[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_u]Meredith[/name_u] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_u]Marion[/name_u] [name_f]Martha[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Marguerite[/name_f] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Diane[/name_f] nn [name_u]Rue[/name_u]
