What would you name a sister to Adelaine?

I realize [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] isn’t for everyone and I’m very aware that some people will confuse it with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and/or [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]. Please try to disregard those issues, they don’t bother me at all. I just really need to find names that you think go well with [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f]. (If it helps you to pretend you’re looking for names to go with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], that’s OK.)

Bonus points if the name has nickname options!

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]/[name_f]Elinor[/name_f]

Oooh, I’m a sucker for alliteration with twins but I know in the reality it’s more difficult to live with (I don’t even have twins but my two boys have vastly different names and I still screw them up!) so I’ll try to avoid it. Also - side note - are you honoring yourself with [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f]? If so, that is SO cool.

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and…
[name_f]Adrienne[/name_f] “[name_f]Ria[/name_f]”
[name_f]Annabel[/name_f] “[name_f]Annie[/name_f]” or “[name_f]Belle[/name_f]”
[name_f]Annika[/name_f] “[name_f]Annie[/name_f]” or “[name_u]Nikki[/name_u]”
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] “[name_f]Cara[/name_f]”
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] “[name_f]Ellie[/name_f]”
[name_u]Emery[/name_u] “[name_f]Emmy[/name_f]”
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] “[name_f]Emmy[/name_f]”
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] “[name_f]Evie[/name_f]” or “[name_f]Viv[/name_f]”
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] “[name_u]Josie[/name_u]”
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] “[name_u]Rory[/name_u]”
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] “[name_f]Rosie[/name_f]”
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]” or “[name_f]Viv[/name_f]”

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] is really nice-- a twist on a couple of classics so I think that’s what her sister’s name should be too.

Some possibilities:

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and

[name_f]Bettina[/name_f]
[name_f]Christabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Clarissa[/name_f]
[name_f]Cosima[/name_f]

Congratulations on the twins! What an exciting time for you.
I personally think [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] is a lovely and beautiful name (I prefer it to both [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]!). I would pair names with it that are somewhat traditional, but with just a bit of a twist. Maybe [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] &

@erin beth – thank you! I really like [name_f]Lydia[/name_f], I’ll have to think about that one! I also really like [name_f]Florence[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f].

@nerea – thank you for the suggestions! I’ve always loved [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], maybe I should re-think her… [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is definitely a maybe and I love [name_f]Isabeau[/name_f]! I wonder if I could get away with calling [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and [name_f]Isabeau[/name_f] “[name_u]Laine[/name_u] and [name_u]Beau[/name_u]?”

@hundredacre – thank you, I also love alliteration! Not sure if I’d use the same first initial though… I’ve always loved [name_f]Annabel[/name_f]! She’s going back on the list. I love the nn [name_f]Evie[/name_f] but I’m not a huge fan of [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]… I’ll have to think about more ways to get to [name_f]Evie[/name_f]. And [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] is lovely! [name_u]Rory[/name_u] isn’t my favorite, any other nickname options for her?

@davisellu – thank you for the long list! I love [name_f]Mirabel[/name_f] and [name_f]Rowena[/name_f]! [name_f]Mirabel[/name_f] is definitely going on the list, I’ll have to think about [name_f]Rowena[/name_f].

@saintdollface – thank you! [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] is so pretty and I love the nickname [name_f]Lulu[/name_f]! [name_f]Francesca[/name_f] is lovely, too!

@southernbeauty – thanks! [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] is definitely on the list. [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], and [name_f]Eugenia[/name_f] are possibilities. I used to love [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f] and [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] but I haven’t thought much about them recently. I love the cool/spunky nicknames that [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] and [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f] provide, [name_u]Jules[/name_u], [name_u]Jet[/name_u], [name_f]Carly[/name_f], [name_u]Scout[/name_u], etc.

@columbiacharm – thank you! I love [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f], [name_f]Olivet[/name_f], and [name_f]Rowena[/name_f]. I’ve always loved [name_f]Liv[/name_f] and [name_f]Olivet[/name_f] gets me there without using [name_f]Olivia[/name_f].

@l_e_d2009 – thanks! [name_f]Serafina[/name_f] is really pretty but I can’t use anything with [name_f]Sara[/name_f] in it, sad! [name_f]Carina[/name_f] is lovely but it’s my sister’s name! [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] is a favorite of mine and I’ve been thinking about [name_f]Thessaly[/name_f].

@lainy, I don’t have any real suggestions right now, but wanted to comment before I forgot… I think you could get your beloved [name_f]Lola[/name_f] from [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]. :stuck_out_tongue:

Yes! Definitely! [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f], “[name_f]Lainey[/name_f] and [name_f]Lola[/name_f]” SO CUTE

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] feels like an old french/medieval kind of name to me. Going with that vibe…

[name_f]Alienor[/name_f]
[name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]/[name_f]Eloisa[/name_f]

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] is beautiful! My first thought is [name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]. Suggestions:

[name_f]Adelaine[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]
