What do you think of these names as a little sister to Jillian (Jilly) Rose and Lucy Jane?

Amelia (Mimi)
Cecilia (Sissy)
Eleanor (Nora)
Matilda (Mattie)
Analeise (Annie)

Lucy is a family name is so is Eleanor. Middle name will probably be Claire or Kate.


Can you suggest any other names in the same style as these? I'm trying to avoid names that begin with J or L and names that end with "n" of the long "ee" sound. Thanks in advance!

I think Amelia is beautiful but I am not a fan of the nn Mimi. I think Millie is better for it. I also really like Analeise nn Annie, though I would change the spelling to Analiese.

My original NN for Amelia was Milly, but it rhymes with Jilly, which is my oldest daughter's NN, so I scrapped it. I think Analiese is my favorite of the list. DH likes Matilda (Tilly), but again it rhymes with Jilly and I'm not even sure that I like Matilda.

I really love Eleanor, if I had another DD one of her m/n would be Eleanor. I prefer 'Ellie' as a nickname

I agree I am not wild about Mimi as a NN for Amelia. I love Lia or Mia as a NN.
Ellie is cute NN for Elanor....too bad you named your cat that! LOL.
I think Analese is my fave of that name list!

I like Amelia and love Cecilia, Eleanor, and Matilda. I also really like the nickname Nora.

I'm not sure how to pronounce Analeise, and the 'anal' bit bothers me. Anneliese is nice, though.

Thanks for the input, everybody!

I asked my PR and Matilda seems to be the favorite there. I'm trying to get it to grow on me. I like it, in theory, but then I can't picture a 13-year-old named Matilda (but maybe Mattie?). I think Analiese is still my favorite (but now that the "anal" part has been pointed out, I think I'd have to change the spelling).

Of the suggestions, I LOVE Alice and it's always been high on my list, but the only NN I can think of is Allie and that's just a little too common for me. Maybe it would be okay, though. I also like Stella and Sabrina, but DH vetoed Sabrina a while back and Stella is becoming too popular for me. Calista is a good option, though!

Thanks again!

I think you have picked some beautiful names. Out of them all I really think Matilda & Amelia are one of my favorites along with Cecilia.

I'm not a fan of any nicknames, so voting based solely on the full name!

Amelia
Eleanor

I too can't picture an older Matilda... cute for a little girl but to me sounds too grumpy old lady-like as an adult name!

You have some darling names on your list! With Jillian and Lucy I like...

Eleanor nn Nora - LOVE Nora, this is classy and timeless and lovely.
Cecilia (however I prefer Cecelia - nn Celia!) - love this as well. Also classy and timeless.

I'm not crazy about the name Amelia (all I hear is meal)- but Mila is adorable! And I strongly prefer it to Mimi.
Matilda (Mattie) - nms. Its a nice enough name, but it doesn't sound very pretty to me. And Mattie seems so common to me.
Analeise (Annie) - I prefer Annaliese (therefore removing the anal concept), but its not a favorite of mine.

I vote Cecilia! Cecily is also a cute (although longer) nickname.

What about Millicent? (nickname Milly or Mimi or Lily)

Mabel nn Belle is also nice.

Amelia (Mimi) - cute, but not my style
Cecilia (Sissy) - Like the name, but not fond of Sissy as NN
Eleanor (Nora) - Love this! Both the full name and the NN you picked out
Matilda (Mattie) - Same as above
Analeise (Annie) - Not fond of the spelling, prefer Annalise, cute NN

I bolded my faves and the ones I think go best in your sibset.

Amelia (Mimi) - I love Ameilia, but I'm not a fan of Mimi.
Cecilia (Sissy) - I'm not a fan of either.
Eleanor (Nora) - I much prefer just Nora. Nora Kate or Nora Claire would be beautiful and go well in your sibset.
Matilda (Mattie) - My DD had a Matilda in her art class and I fell in love with the name right then and there. Before, it was not a name I would care for, but she was so cute. And yes, I could picture the name on any age baby/girl/woman.
Analeise (Annie) - I prefer the Anneliese spelling. It's a pretty name and goes well in your sibset.

A few more suggestions:
Annabelle (Annie or Belle)
Beatice
Caroline (Cary)
Charlotte (Charli or Lottie)
Claudia
Cora
Georgia (Georgie or Gigi)
Hazel
Scarlett
Violet
Willa
