I went with S!byl Fl0rence for Ivy's sister in the end. The first half of the pregnancy we were leaning towards some form of Isolde, but at 22 weeks pregnant I started reading a book about sibyls and storytellers and that tipped the balance the other way.
The hardest thing was choosing between the Syb!l and S!byl spellings, as both of them looked right and looked wrong at the same time (here in Spain she'll be using the Catalan form wherever we can get away with it). In the end, I decided that this way I and both my daughters have the i-consonant-y pattern in our names, and it makes for a special thrill every time I'm reading something and a s!byl shows up (more often than you might think).
Now... my husband wants to get a small tattoo for each daughter: a typographical sign that looks like an ivy leaf for the first one and... any thoughts on what could make a good symbol for this one?
And thank you everyone for your help!
