so lately I've been thinking alot about using Jillian if we have a girl. One of the reasons it really sticks out to me is it sounds like Julian (which we were thinking of using as a mn for a boy but honestly I don't like it that much personally, and I don't really care for any of the Jul- names for girls either), and Julian has a strong family connection in my DH's family.

The problem is I don't like Jill all that much as a nickname, and I love nicknames. I know if we do use it that down the line she might be Jill and I'm ok with that. If we used it I'd probably use a nickname like Fern or Jem (names/nicknames that I like but don't really have a full name to go with).. do you think that would be ok? Any other nickname ideas? What do you think of Jillian as a sister to Alaina (Lainey)? What would you name a twin sister or brother to Jillian? Thanks!

I really like Jillian. Like you, I don't love Jill, but I don't hate it either. She doesn't have to use a nickname if she doesn't like it. My name is Melissa and I have always disliked the nn Missy and therefore no one has ever called me that. I've always just gone by my full name. I think Jillian goes great with Alaina.

Twin names:

Jillian and Violet
Jillian and Scarlet
Jillian and Meghan
Jillian and Heidi
Jillian and Charlotte
Jillian and Victoria
Jillian and Bridget
Jillian and Penelope
Jillian and Brooke
Jillian and Calista
Jillian and Alyssa
Jillian and Molly

Jillian and Elliott
Jillian and Tobias
Jillian and Brennan
Jillian and Alexander
Jillian and Brody
Jillian and Ashton
Jillian and Egan
Jillian and Sawyer
Jillian and Cameron
Jillian and Andrew
Jillian and Graham
Jillian and Brady
Jillian and Griffin
Jillian and Seth
Jillian and August
Jillian and Cassius

Jillian is actually an old form of Juliana, so it's a feminine form of Julian.

I think Jillian (nn Jem) goes great with Alaina! Seriously, I think they match perfectly.

I like A.L.C's recommendation of Lucy with Jillian. Alaina, Jillian, and Lucy would be such a fantastic sibling set!

For a boy, I like Oliver and Lucas with Jillian and Alaina.

I like the nn Jilly for Jillian. And, I think the name/nn go well with your first daughter's name.
