Help! Can't name a little sister for Eliza

I'm due with a second daughter Dec 5 and just can't find any girl names I like to go with my Eliza!

Criteria...
-I'd like it to have an "L" sound somewhere in the name to go with our last name. 
-Middle name may be Jean after a family member. 
-Prefer three-syllable names but I'm open to some shorter ones if they're really cute :)

thanks for any suggestions!!

    Eliza is among our top choices, but we are pretty certain that we are going with Cecilia Jean (with Jean also honoring a family member ;) ) - it also seems to fit all of your naming criteria as well!! Good luck with your name search!

  • Updating to say I’m now 37 weeks and still unsure! Still planning on mn Jean, but the first name just isn’t sticking. 

    -DH favorite is Clara, but to me it sounds softer/sweeter/less spunky than Eliza and i don’t love that they both end in “a.” I do like the Nutcracker connection with this time of year, however. 

    -One of my favorites is Stella but it has the same “a” ending problem. I’m not sure I want to start an E thing with Eliza and Estelle. 

    -Lily was a top contender for a while but I’d like a longer form and Lillian has a negative connotation to my family. Any other classic sounding names with the “ee” ending that fit with Eliza?

    Or are there spunkier variations of Clara? My last name is one syllable so Claire feels too short to me.

    Estelle, Chloe, Molly, Celeste or Holly is nice for the season. 

    For what it’s worth I don’t think the two a endings are problematic. Also I think a name ending in a sounds the best with MN Jean too. 

    Stella has that spice you’re looking for. Cecelia, Dahlia, Ophelia also seem great matches with Eliza.  

    Edit: Natalie is nice for the season too

  • I think there are tons of great suggestions on this page and I’m struggling to think of names that haven’t been mentioned. I agree with the above poster that a name ending in A shouldn’t be a dealbreaker.

    Suggesting 
    Violet Jean
    Claudia Jean 
    Josephine Jean 
    Florence Jean 
    Frances Jean 
    Isadora Jean 
    Serena Jean
    Farrah Jean
    Coralie Jean 
    Matilda Jean
    Felicity Jean

  • Clarabella/Clarabelle is the only longer form of Clara of which i can think, but it's definitely not spunky.

    Other ideas:

    Abigail Jean
    Adeline Jean 
    Annabel Jean 
    Calliope Jean
    Caroline Jean
    Cecily Jean
    Chloe Jean 
    Hazel Jean 
    Helaine Jean
    Isobel Jean 
    Madeleine Jean 
    Molly Jean
    Noelle Jean
    Penelope Jean
    Rachael Jean
    Scarlett Jean
    Violet Jean

  • Thank you for the additional name lists! I’m glad to hear that others aren’t concerned about both names having “a” endings. I’m probably overthinking at this point — just haven’t found that one name that I love as much as I love Eliza so far!
