My cousins are named Abbie, Emma and Olivia, and someone on my street has three girls with the exact same names!

I have a cousin named Abigail but we call her Abbie. My name is Georgia. Abbie's sisters names are Lilly, short for Lillian, and Juliette. Abbie had another older sister named Charlotte, but she sadly died before she was born. I never got to meet her, let alone Abbie. (Charlotte Rose Victoria was her full name)
