Sister for Libby

Name suggestions please! My daughter is Elizabeth Claire and we call her Libby. We are looking for a name for her baby sister that is due this fall. We like classic, traditional, southern, yet unique names. Libby is named after two great-grandmothers. I would love to use Caroline as it’s another family name with meaning, but my niece is already called Caroline, so we could likely opt for it as a middle name. Other family names we have are Betsy and Peyton. My hesitation with Betsy is that it is often a nickname for Elizabeth, and we already gave that name to Libby. We can’t decide if we want a nick-namey name like Libby, or just call her by the name we give her. Open to feedback on our current list or new ideas. Thank you!

Lucy Caroline
Caroline Mae (called Mae)
Nora Caroline
Betsy Caroline
Anna Kate
Sally Kate
Caroline Jane (called Janie)
Georgia Mae

Editing to add, our last name is a two syllable name that begins with B.

Congratulations on the upcoming addition!!
I especially adore [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] from your list- I think they go beautifully with [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f], and I love [name_f]Mae[/name_f] with [name_f]Libby[/name_f].
As for [name_f]Betsy[/name_f], maybe you could use [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] as a full name?
Some other ideas could be…

[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] (Ellie, Liss)
[name_f]Eleanora[/name_f] (Nora, but might be too close to Elizabeth?)
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] (Emmy, [name_f]Emma[/name_f], Lina)
[name_f]Michelle[/name_f] (Shelby, Shelly)
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f] (Bri, Gigi)

[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] (Evie)
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] (May)
[name_f]Victoria[/name_f] (Tori)
[name_f]Emma[/name_f] (Emmy)

[name_f]Libby[/name_f] is co cute :heart:

I like your list - my favourites are:

[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] - strong, sweet and charming
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] - snappy and sweet
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] - strong and cute

I like [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] or [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] - but I’d probably use [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] or [name_f]Mae[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] since [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] is your niece’s name.

A few ideas:

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] ‘Betsy’
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] ‘Lottie’ ‘Charlie’ (Caroline=Charlotte)
[name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] (Caroline - anagram of Caroline)
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] ‘Callie’
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Carole[/name_f] ‘Penny’ ‘Nell’ ‘Peppa’ (Penelope as a not to Peyton)
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] ‘Mae’
[name_f]Charlene[/name_f] Daisy/Charlene [name_f]Kate[/name_f] ‘Lena’ ‘Charlie’
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] ‘Dotty’ ‘Dolly’ ‘Dodie’ ‘Dora’
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_u]Ivy[/name_u] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]

I love the name [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Libby[/name_f] I think that is so sweet! Out of your list my favourite is [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] followed by [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]. This is as [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is a long name with a short middle name and I just enjoy patterns. I also like [name_f]Nora[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f].
The only name I can come up with is [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], but that is because my friend just had a baby named [name_f]Hilda[/name_f] so all that is in my head is [name_f]Hilda[/name_f]. I don’t think this is much help at all. 🫶🏻

[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] Mae!! Other suggestions

[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Savannah[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]

You have a beautiful list :purple_heart:
[name_f]My[/name_f] favourites are [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f].

Some suggestions are:

[name_f]Carolina[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] (Could call her [name_f]Lina[/name_f] or Mae)
[name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Maisy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]

[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] feels too similar to [name_f]Libby[/name_f] and I wouldn’t do [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] with [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. I also wouldn’t put [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] first and then call her by her middle, I strongly prefer the name the child will be using to go first. I also would personally go for a full name for the more nicknamey options since big sister has a formal name.

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is my favorite on your list. [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] would also be gorgeous. [name_f]Nora[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] also go well with [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. I love [name_f]Sally[/name_f] but think [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] nickname [name_f]Sally[/name_f] would go better (I also think [name_f]Sally[/name_f] works as a stretchy nickname for [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] since it has the “sal” in there). [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] would be fantastic and probably my favorite. [name_f]Mae[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] also works but I like the slightly longer names that can be nicknamed a little more.

Ranking your full list and my suggested tweaks:
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Sarah[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Nora[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Sally[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Sarah[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Mae[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Betsy[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]

Other suggestions I think go with [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] “Libby”:
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] Jo/Josie/Sophie/Posie
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] Suzie/Anna/Annie
[name_f]Marianne[/name_f] Annie/Marie
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] Cathy/Katie/Kate
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] Anna/Annie/Belle/Ella
[name_f]Annemarie[/name_f] Anna/Annie/Marie/Nancy

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] Maggie/Meg/Daisy/Peggy
[name_f]Rebecca[/name_f] Becky/Becca/Ruby
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] Dot/Dottie/Thea/Dora

Another vote for [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] gorgeous!
