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!
