Sister for Noah

I just cannot seem to love any girls name. I'm not sure what it is. Boys names easy. Girls names impossible.

Criteria
2 syllables ideally
4 or 5 letters
As close being unshortenable as possible (like Noah)

I was always set on Matilda and it does go against the above. But I'm worried it will be shortened.

Just to add, due to the job I do I come across A LOT of people. So quite a number of names I write off because of that negative association.

Rosie Matilda sounds better than Rose Matilda imo.

@helloitsmeyourlookingfor no worries. This is a good challenge! How about:

Viola, Sally, Niamh, Aoife, Misha, Zelda, Tegan, Megan, Luisa, Celia, Fiona, Zadie, Irina, Alexa, Petra, Eleri, Anwen, Aimee, Ariel, Lowri, Elora, Marta, Anika, Salma, Arwen, Margo, Sasha, Ember, Raven, Zion, Sian, Suki, Rumi, Sage, Elva, Juno.

Alternatively, these don't fit your criteria but I'm wondering if you might prefer a name more associated with boys as you seem to struggle with liking girl names? Names like:
Addison, Brynn, Bailey, Cody, Drew, Dylan, Elliot, Emerson, Jude, Jamie, London, Morgan, Quinn, Riley, Rowan, Sutton, Spencer, Taylor

I like Rose and Matilda - but she will likely end up Rosie or Tilda/Tilly

I think Noah and Edie (could be Edith) or Tilly (Matilda).

Funnily enough when I read the title the name Rosie popped in my head, so I’d definitely go Rose Matilda.
