Sister for Ellie and Emery?

Looking for a girl name.  Sisters are Elinor (Ellie) Kate and Emery Jane.  It does not need to be an E name.  Thank  you!

If you were to use another E name, I'd suggest avoiding anything starting with El or Em, as they all seem too similar.  Elinor is very traditional, while Emery is has a more modern, unisex/surname kind of feel.  

With those things in mind, I'll suggest Eden, Esme & Eve or Eva & some non-E suggestions are Adelaide (Addie), Lena, Lila, Delaney, Laney, Lucy, Lilly, Avery & Sophia/Sophie

I have such a strong association with Elinor that I immediately thought "Marianne!"  Probably not exactly where you want to go.


At any rate, I think Emery & Elinor are a lovely sibset, and they're both names with a good long history to them.  Emery is less common and I think a little harder to match, so I tried to think of names that worked with Elinor and then see if they also fit with Emery.  

In pretty much the order I thought of them:

I think Caroline is a very pretty name that would work along the lines of known, but not to popular. If you'd like another E name I'd say Evanna.

One option if you would be interested in giving the new baby an E initial like her siblings, but don't want it to see too matchy, you could look at E names that with nicknames of a different letter, like

Estelle - Stella

Eloise - Lou

Eponine - Nina

Elaine - Lainey

And so on.. Other names that might work are Margaret (Maggie), Phillipa (Pippa), or Charlotte. Good luck!

We have an Ellie and a Jane. If this baby is a girl we are going with Caroline.
