DH really likes the name Daniella and it is growing on me. I just don't know if it flows with our 2 daughters names---Emma and Olivia?

DH says we could nickname her Danni---but I don't like that nickname. I think it sounds too boyish IMO especially since all of our girls would have such girly names. I was thinking her nickname would be Ella? Is that weird to have a daughter nicknamed Ella when there is an Emma in our family?

What about spelling?

Any thoughts at all or input would be appreciated...

Thank you bokkechick for my beautiful siggy

I think that it sticks out a bit next to Emma and Olivia but only because it is not as popular. Other than that it's a lovely name. Refreshing almost.

I have an Emma (and I also don't care for Dani) so nicknames I would consider would be Nella (I really like this one) or Della.

I have a friend Danielle who goes Yellie and a friend Daniella who goes by Nelly. Dani isn't the only nickname option As for Ella/Emma, they are close but it comes down to personal taste if it is considered too close.

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

I don't think it goes with your girls names. It is such an 80's name to me. I do like Ella and Emma together.

I agree that it sticks out a bit with your other daughter's names, mainly because it is not quite as popular as Emma and Olivia. It feels just as feminine to me as the other names, but I really dislike Dani as a nn... would prefer Ella.

The "Dan" part of the name throws it off for me....making it less feminine than your other DDs names. And yes, I'm not a fan of the nn Dani with your other girls' names. You could go with another nn but when she is older, she very well might choose to go by Dani.

I think an -ella name would be perfect in your sibset but something more like Arabella, Annabelle, Gabriella, or even Aubriella.

Ella and Emma are too close to me for sister names but everyone has their preferences as to how matchy they like their kids' names.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I really like Daniella, and have considered using it myself. If I were to use a nn, it would be Ella-very cute. I think Ella is ok with Emma...

I like it, and think it goes well with your other girls names
