Sister for Eliza?

I'm getting desperate for a girls name - DD 2 due very soon and DH is being typically unhelpful coming up with no suggestions but vetoing all mine.
Lots of the names I like feel too similar to DD's - Alexandra, Alice, Emily, etc.
I'd also like to avoid anything too popular as our surname is very common (in the same way as Jones). For this reason I would also prefer two syllables or more.
Please help with ideas!

Some good names here. Some were on our list first time around and I had forgotten them.
Like martha but I think martha and Eliza sound like two Victorian maids!
Is Betty a joke? They would basically share one name between them!

I hadn't thought of Violet before but I like it. Is there a decent shortening though? Vi doesn't sound very nice to me.
