Help me suggest names for Lia's baby sibling!

    I know I made a post about this about a month ago, but now my coworker is actively requesting name suggestions for me (and how could I refuse? :)). My coworker, Cassie, is expecting her second child. She already has Adalia Jaden (spelling slightly altered for safety reasons), who is turning 3 in a couple days. She goes by Lia.

    Cassie (my coworker) says she loves that Lia’s full name is not used a lot at all, but that her nn, Lia, is familiar. It sounds like she’d like the same for baby number 2. She’s said in the past that she likes unisex names (hence Lia’s MN), and I asked her if that’s a priority this time around, if she wants another girly FN and a unisex MN, and she’s not too particular about that. She’s just worried about finding a name she and her boyfriend can actually agree on. So far, her boyfriend wants Aria or Rica (Rika? Pronounced REE-kah) for a girl, or Nico for a boy. She likes Aria okay, but one of our managers is welcoming his second daughter (to be Arya) in just a couple of days, and we assume he’ll be quite territorial. She’s not mentioned any other girls’ names she likes. She isn’t really a fan of Nico, but she LOVES Dominic nn Dom, and would happily compromise if they could use Dominic. She would call him Dom, and her boyfriend could call him Nico.

    Any ideas for her? I have a few ideas (I think Susanna nn Annie or Felicity nn Izzy would be adorable with her daughter, and I’m in love with the idea of Adalia and Owen or Adalia and Henry, if she has a boy), but I figured you’d all come up with some creative ideas I’ve missed, and I can give her a good-sized list in a few days. :)

    I have no idea what surname we’re working with as of right now. Her surname is Ke.rn, but I have no clue if she’ll use her surname, or her boyfriend’s.

    Suggest away, ladies!

    Ooh I like the Dominic/Dom/Nico idea. :)

    For girls, I like both of your suggestions, especially Susanna nn Annie (or Zannie).

    Hmm, other ideas …

    Amaya nn Maya
    Eliora nn Ellie (or Liora, Ora, etc.)
    Eleanora nn Nora
    Corrina nn Cori
    Josephine nn Josie
    Geneva nn Eva (or Gen)

    Great suggestions! I’m not a Nora fan, or really a Josie one, either, but I can see her liking some of these. Better suggestions than I’m getting from the other site I’ve been posting on, anyway. :) A few people have been suggesting Ellie, but I’m wondering if Ellie and Lia are too close in sound? I really love Eliora for her. Adalia and Eliora are adorable!

    Eliora is my favorite of my suggestions for her, too. ;) I feel like it goes really well with Adalia without being matchy.
    To me, Ellie and Lia don’t sound too similar. I know Ellie’s a pretty popular nn these days though.

    Yes, haha, Lia is said like Leah. I think she just takes the direct spelling from her name, which I think is cool. :) I prefer Lia and Lea to Leah, anyhow.

    I’m thinking of suggesting Violet, too. I think Adalia and Violet are adorable, and Vivi or Lettie (even Lottie or Litty/Liddy?) might be cute nns.

    Agreed, Violet is super cute, too!

    Just wanted to update this–I handed off a list (well, technically two lists, haha) to her on Sunday, and she and her boyfriend really love Hazel! I’m beyond excited; I think Adalia and Hazel are adorable together. Her boyfriend took the lists to look them over, so we’re still waiting to see if there’s others they’ll agree on, but I absolutely love Hazel; I can see her with a Hazel, and I would be totally excited to have a little Hazel in my life! When it comes to myself, I never seem to be able to commit to it myself. Just wanted to update you all on the situation. I figure I’ll be bumping this thread if she’s still looking for ideas in a wee bit. :)
