Sister for Genevieve

My daughter's name is Genevieve Marie and we are expecting baby #2. We have a boy's name picked out but I'm having a terrible time with girl's names. I don't want anything too popular and I want someting that will go with Geneveive. I love Iris and Alice but our last name is Davis and that doesn't work (too many "s" sounds). I also like Claire and Rosalie. Any additonal suggestions are appreciated!

Esme, which is my second favorite French name after Genevieve :) Others, if you want to stick with French: Amelie, Delphine, Sylvie, Angeline

 

The Genevieves I've known had sisters named Caroline, Kaitlyn, and Zoe.

I also ike Esme, Amelie, Delphine, and Sylvie, if French is the theme.

I really really like Rosalie from your original list (also love Rosalind). Claire sounds more like a middle name to me - Rosalie Claire is pretty fantastic, maybe you're done? :-) Claire just doesn't feel as significant and rich as Genevieve.

Other possibilities, some French and some not: Clementine, Celeste, Margot, Eloise, Elodie (love this name), Viola (a more interesting version of Violet, but I also like Violet or Violette), Coralie, Seraphina, Jacqueline, Eugenie, Magnolia, Olive, Phoebe, Evelyn, Georgina or Georgiana (or just Georgia), Cordelia, Harriet, Lorelei...

My friend has twins named Genevieve and Gianna (they go by Vivi and Gia).  The girls have an older sister named Annika, and I think Annika and Genevieve go very nicely together.  I do really like Rosalie too though!
