Sister for Roxanna

I feel defeated. I’ve been a name nerd for 20 years and cannot come up with a name I love for my second baby, another girl.

[name_f]My[/name_f] first daughter is [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] and we call her [name_f]Roxy[/name_f]. Im looking for another “unused classic” name that is easy to spell and pronounce but preferably outside the top 500. I’d love another 3 syllable name with a cute nickname as I’ve realized we use [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] way more than [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f]. Here are some from my list:

[name_f]Claudia[/name_f]
[name_u]Simone[/name_u]
[name_f]Moira[/name_f]
[name_f]Valerie[/name_f]
[name_f]Sabrina[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_f]Francine[/name_f]
[name_f]Clarissa[/name_f]

[name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] “Roxy” is fabulous, and you have a great list! Here are some thoughts…

[name_f]Claudia[/name_f]–I love [name_f]Claudia[/name_f] and think it deserves more use! Would you consider a stretch nickname (Clio/Coco/Lola/etc.)?

[name_u]Simone[/name_u]–Ditto [name_f]Claudia[/name_f] (love in general and with Roxanna!), although I’m having even more trouble with nicknames for this one.

[name_f]Moira[/name_f]–Ruined by the Schitt’s [name_u]Creek[/name_u] character for me, but a beautiful name if you don’t have that association!

[name_f]Valerie[/name_f]–Doesn’t stand out to me as having the same spunk and energy of [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f], but still very pretty!

[name_f]Sabrina[/name_f]–Feels like a natural sister for [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f]! Nickname Bee/Bri/Bria/Nina/Rina?

[name_f]Felicity[/name_f]–Gives me softer vibes than [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f], but lovely and full of personality!

[name_f]Juliette[/name_f]–This isn’t my favorite from your list on its own, but I do think Jet/Jette would be a pretty fabulous counterpart to [name_f]Roxy[/name_f]! I also adore [name_u]Julie[/name_u] although it has a bit of a different vibe.

[name_f]Francine[/name_f]–Perfect with [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] and [name_u]Frankie[/name_u] would be so good with [name_f]Roxy[/name_f]! I also like Francie/Frannie. This is probably my favorite option from your list.

[name_f]Clarissa[/name_f]–Not my favorite from your list (feels a little too frilly to me I think?) but still very pretty!

[name_f]Zahara[/name_f] → [name_f]Zara[/name_f], [name_f]Zari[/name_f]

I personally would want a name that doesn’t end in -a, with a nickname that doesn’t end in -y. From your list, [name_u]Simone[/name_u] and [name_f]Juliette[/name_f] stick out to me, as good options, stylistically match with [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f], and give you good nn choices to play with.

I would also add
[name_f]Corinne[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]
[name_f]Suzette[/name_f]
[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_f]Yvette[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]

Naming is really hard! I think it’s even harder as a name nerd so don’t feel too defeated you’ll find the one eventually :hugs::hugs:

From your list I love [name_u]Simone[/name_u], [name_f]Valerie[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], [name_f]Juliette[/name_f] & [name_f]Clarissa[/name_f] they are all so gorgeous and I think would be a perfect sister for [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] ‘Roxy’ 🫶🏻

You’ve had a few suggestions so please count any repeats as me being in agreement with the berries

[name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] ‘Roxy and…

[name_f]Alessandra[/name_f] ‘Sandy’
[name_f]Drucilla[/name_f] ‘Dru’
[name_f]Verity[/name_f] ‘Vee’
[name_f]Violetta[/name_f] ‘Letty’
[name_u]Carmen[/name_u] ‘Callie’
[name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] ‘Tansy’
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] ‘Sephy’
[name_f]Theodora[/name_f] ‘Teddy’
[name_f]Leonora[/name_f] ‘Lenny’
[name_f]Philomena[/name_f] ‘Mena’
[name_f]Euphemia[/name_f] ‘Effie’
[name_f]Angelica[/name_f] ‘Angie’
[name_f]Geneva[/name_f] ‘Nev’
[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] ‘Eve’
[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] ‘Tally’
[name_f]Florentina[/name_f] ‘Flossie’
[name_f]Clemency[/name_f] ‘Clemmy’
[name_f]Samara[/name_f] ‘Sammy’
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] ‘Tabby’
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] ‘Suki’
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] ‘Eva’

I actually love the idea of [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] ‘Roxy’ and [name_f]Euphemia[/name_f] ‘Effie’ I think they sound so intriguing together really bold, edgy and vibrant. [name_f]Euphemia[/name_f] is such an underused classic that is outside the top 500 and feels bold next to [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] however very wearable with the nickname [name_f]Effie[/name_f]. I love this one! I also like [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] & [name_f]Samara[/name_f] as they both feel romantic with their beautiful night time inspired meanings. Then finally my third favourite is [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] & [name_f]Angelica[/name_f] as I feel they feel very cohesive with the shared letters, similar look visually and sweet nicknames. I think [name_f]Angelica[/name_f] stylistically is fab with [name_f]Roxanna[/name_f].

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps

[name_f]Roxanna[/name_f] is such a great name!! It has such a bold, colorful vibe to me, I love the idea of a sister name that matches that. I like [name_u]Simone[/name_u] from your list–Roxy and Mona!!
