I think that Matilda & Eliza are the best fits from each of your lists

Onelife2024 · 21/01/2024 17:55

Agree with pp that Matilda and Eliza work well from your lists. Annie is lovely but as you have longer sibling names I like it as a nn for Annabel with your sibset. I like longer names with a 2 syllable nn to match with your other two names. Ideas -

Phillippa (Pippa)
Annabel (Annie)
Gabrielle (Gabby)
Imogen (Immy)
Georgina (Ginny)
Madeleine (Maddie)
Emmeline (Emmie)

Matilda / Tilly is my fave of those

I don’t think your names go, particularly. DH’s are much better.
