Sibling Name to go with Nicholas

[name_m]Hi[/name_m],
My husband and I just can’t seem to get a list of names narrowed down for June 2018 baby. One child is [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] [name_u]Jay[/name_u] who we would like a similar theme too. I love long first names so we can then have cute nicknames but they will have a longer name if needing to be professional later on in life. We like names like [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] ([name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] was out as my great grandmother’s name but also the name of our adorable neighbor). [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] after the annes in the family a nice compromise though we dislike the belle ending with our surname, too many b sounds. Other favourites are [name_f]Elianna[/name_f] (too many syllables), [name_u]Allison[/name_u] (not loving it with [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]), [name_m]Andrew[/name_m], [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] or even [name_m]Anthony[/name_m]. [name_f]Natalie[/name_f] was our first choice but cannot have [name_u]Nat[/name_u] so that’s out too. Please not names starting with ‘J’ as [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] already has middle name beginning with [name_u]J[/name_u]. If a girl we want middle name like [name_f]Mae[/name_f] or [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], still short but the less syllables the better. Our favorite nicknames are [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] or [name_u]Allie[/name_u] but doesn’t have to be.
All suggestions appreciated.
Thanks

With [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m], I really like [name_m]Anthony[/name_m] and [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] though prefer it spelled [name_f]Annabel[/name_f]. To get to the nickname [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], I really like [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] or [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. With [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m], I prefer [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]. To get the nickname [name_f]Allie[/name_f], I like [name_f]Alicia[/name_f], [name_f]Althea[/name_f], and [name_f]Alberta[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Althea[/name_f] is my favorite.

Other names that I like with [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]:

[name_m]Oliver[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Gregory[/name_m]
[name_m]Elijah[/name_m]
[name_m]Xavier[/name_m]

or

[name_f]Evelyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Fiona[/name_f]
[name_f]Vivian[/name_f]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]

I like [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Annabel[/name_f] and the suggestion of [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Alicia[/name_f]. A few other ideas:

[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Alina[/name_f]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Elena[/name_f]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Emily[/name_f]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] & [name_f]Helena[/name_f]

If you’re not sure about -belle, what about [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f]/[name_f]Annalise[/name_f]? I think you could easily get [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] out of [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f], maybe [name_u]Allie[/name_u] too (or the obvious [name_f]Annie[/name_f]).

Other ideas:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] (nn. [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] or [name_f]Emmy[/name_f])
[name_f]Arielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] (nn. [name_f]Callie[/name_f]?)
[name_f]Lillian[/name_f]
[name_f]Valerie[/name_f] ([name_f]Valerie[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] is cute!)
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]

[name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_u]Cameron[/name_u]
[name_m]Gabriel[/name_m]
[name_m]Timothy[/name_m]
[name_m]Victor[/name_m]
[name_m]Wesley[/name_m]

Wow, thank you for the suggestions. I love the suggestions and some really do cover everything we wanted in a name. [name_f]Alicia[/name_f] is very pretty too, goes great with [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] that’s for sure. We really have some decisions to make now and work out the best spellings. Thanks so much.

I love the suggestions for [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f],and [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] !!

Thanks so much for the replies. I’m really stuck at boys names, nothing appeals as much as [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] did to us. I’ll have to keep searching similar names to see. [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] was a contender but not sure if [name_u]Nick[/name_u] and [name_m]Nate[/name_m] is too cutesy. So were onto the idea of [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] now will see how that goes. As for the girls names suggestions we do love [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] but are getting worried about it being too long and if at school would there be issues with spelling or pronunciation. If so maybe [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] is the way we go. Then again that can be spelt [name_f]Annabel[/name_f] so confused again. So many choices.Thanks everyone.

First of all I personally don’t think [name_f]Elianna[/name_f] is too many syllables! I think [name_f]Elianna[/name_f] nn [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] goes great with [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] nn [name_u]Nick[/name_u] :).
