Tally's little sister

DH and I are expecting our second child, another girl.

Our first daughter is named [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], who occasionally goes by [name_u]Tally[/name_u].

We have a few months to go and we want to start narrowing down.

Our current list:

[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]
[name_f]Cleo[/name_f] or [name_f]Clio[/name_f]
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_f]Alana[/name_f] (somehow feels close to [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]?)
[name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_u]Clementine[/name_u]

Which are your favorites with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]? Which other name of the list would you pair with it as a middle?

[name_u]Tally[/name_u] is a darling nickname. I love the idea of using a cute nickname for whichever one you pick.

[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] ("[name_u]Tally[/name_u]") and…

[name_f]Seraphine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] ([name_f]Violet[/name_f] is short enough it doesn’t need a NN, but [name_f]Vi[/name_f] and [name_f]Vivi[/name_f] and [name_f]Lettie[/name_f] are adorable)
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u] - I love that this is long and flowy like [name_u]Tallulah[/name_u]. Potential problem: [name_u]Tally[/name_u] and [name_f]Valley[/name_f]? I’m sure you could avoid it.
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] - I can never pass up [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]!
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] or [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Bianca[/name_f] - too much [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m] or just enough [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m]?

You have some really great names on that list!

I adore so many names on your list! My favorite with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] is [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]. I also love [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], [name_f]Valentina[/name_f], [name_f]Lilliana[/name_f], [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f], [name_f]Juliet[/name_f], [name_f]Emilia[/name_f], [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f], although the latter two feel a little “small” compared to [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f], as if it somehow overshadows them a bit. I’m also not sure how I feel about the repeating “oo” sounds in [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] and [name_f]Juliet[/name_f], although I love the name [name_f]Juliet[/name_f].
I also love pp’s suggestions of [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f], [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] & [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f].

[name_u]Tally[/name_u] is a beautiful nickname!

I like:
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]

Good luck with your child!!

I really love a lot of your names, especially [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] and [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]. However, [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] is so unique and bright that I don’t love your choices with her. [name_m]How[/name_m] about:

[name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Ramona[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
[name_f]Clodagh[/name_f]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f] (as a first name)
[name_f]Henrietta[/name_f]
Claudia

[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and…
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilliana[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Cleo[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Alana[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Cleo[/name_f] [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]

My favorite names from your list are [name_f]Juliet[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] and [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]. My pick would probably be [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], since it sounds different from [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] but not too much so.

I think [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] are the perfect sibset! I like a couple other names on your list, but none of them fit with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] half as well as [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] does in my opinion.

The first that came to mind looking at your list was [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]!

My favorites with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] are [name_f]Alana[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], [name_f]Lilliana[/name_f] and [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] :slight_smile:

[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] ("[name_u]Tally[/name_u]") and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Bianca[/name_f] are perfect.

I l[name_m]Ike[/name_m]

[name_f]SeraphIne[/name_f] [name_f]Alana[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_u]EloIse[/name_u]
[name_f]VIolet[/name_f] [name_f]EmIlIa[/name_f]

my favorites

[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]

My favorites would be
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Seraphine[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]

I really like the suggestions of [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Bianca[/name_f]!

My personal favorites with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] would be [name_f]Valentina[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] or [name_f]Clio[/name_f] [name_f]Valentina[/name_f] :slight_smile:

Thanks, everyone!

And we really like @boyandgirl’s suggestion of [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]! I think we’ll add it :slight_smile:

[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] “[name_u]Tally[/name_u]” and…

[name_f]Bianca[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] “[name_f]Ana[/name_f]” or “Bink”
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f] [name_f]Clio[/name_f] “[name_f]Emi[/name_f]” or “[name_f]Lia[/name_f]”
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] “[name_f]Aurie[/name_f]” or “[name_u]Rory[/name_u]”
[name_f]Clementine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] “[name_f]Emmy[/name_f]”

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] is my ultimate favourite, i’d love to give that name t my daughter one day. I’d go with [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] or [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]

I really like the idea of [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] & [name_f]Valentina[/name_f], [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] & [name_f]Alana[/name_f], [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] & [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] & [name_f]Clementine[/name_f].

Congratulations!

My favourite names from your list are…
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u]
[name_f]Seraphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Liliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Clementine[/name_f]

I think [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], [name_f]Liliana[/name_f], and [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f] work the best with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] in the first name slot. My favourite from the three names that just seems to fit perfectly with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] is [name_f]Liliana[/name_f]. [name_f]Liliana[/name_f] has the nature connection which [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] has through her meaning ‘leaping water’, she has that ‘a’ ending that [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] has, and also she has the cute nickname [name_f]Lily[/name_f] which works with [name_u]Tally[/name_u]. [name_f]Lilliana[/name_f] is the name you have on the list but [name_f]Liliana[/name_f] spelling wise is just prettier and looks classier. I really love [name_f]Liliana[/name_f]!! I think [name_f]Liliana[/name_f] teamed with something elegant and strong like [name_u]Marian[/name_u] is perfect and has a similar vibe to [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f].

[name_f]Liliana[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u] for the win : )

So many lovely names on your list! I think my favorites are [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] when paired with [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]/[name_u]Tally[/name_u]. I also love the name [name_f]Stella[/name_f] - would you call [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] by [name_f]Stella[/name_f]? If so, I think both [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] go nicely with both [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] and [name_u]Tally[/name_u].

The best combos for [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], in my opinion:

[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] (love the sound, and while this spelling is much nicer to me than [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], in this case, the latter version might look nicer when the first and middle are written out)
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]

[name_m]Favorite[/name_m] combos for [name_f]Violet[/name_f]:

[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Alana[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Seraphine[/name_f] (I much prefer [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f], though!)

Other middles you might consider for any of the lovely names on your list:

[name_f]Abigail[/name_f], [name_f]Adele[/name_f], [name_f]Aliana[/name_f], [name_f]Amelie[/name_f], [name_f]Anabel[/name_f], [name_f]Analeisa[/name_f], Analeise, [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f], [name_f]Athena[/name_f], [name_f]Audrianna[/name_f], [name_f]Carolina[/name_f], [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f], [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], [name_f]Clarabel[/name_f], [name_f]Coralie[/name_f], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f], [name_f]Delilah[/name_f], [name_f]Elianna[/name_f], [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], [name_f]Francesca[/name_f], [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f], [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f], [name_f]Giselle[/name_f], [name_f]Helena[/name_f], [name_f]Isabella[/name_f], [name_u]Juniper[/name_u], [name_f]Laurel[/name_f], [name_f]Lilibeth[/name_f], Lilibelle, [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Louise[/name_f], [name_f]Lucia[/name_f], Marchelline, [name_f]Maribel[/name_f], [name_f]Marigold[/name_f], [name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_f]Marisol[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Milania[/name_f], [name_f]Noelle[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f], [name_f]Roslyn[/name_f], [name_f]Sophia[/name_f], [name_f]Viola[/name_f], [name_u]Vivian[/name_u], [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f].
