Baby Names

Girl name to go with her 3 brothers

We’re having our 4th baby in November and she is our first girl. I always thought naming a girl would be so much easier but I’m having problems. 

My style: older names (think “old lady” names), must have a good nickname as all my other kids go by nn/shortforms. 

Her brothers:
James Charles Robert (goes by Charlie, James is my husband’s family name)
Henry Alexander (nn Huck)
Edward Christopher (nn Teddy)

open to all suggestions!

  • Thank you all so much for the suggestions. I’ve gone through all of your ideas and added them to my list. 
    So far my favorites are
    Elizabeth (nn Betty, Birdie, Betsy)
    Louise (nn Lou)
    Margaret (nn Maisie, Margot, Millie) 
    Georgia (nn?)
    Mabel (nn?)

    i LOVE Beatrice but I have a cat named Bellatrix so would feel weird.
    I also love Penelope but have a family member who just named her baby that.

    Do you think it would be odd to use Louise if it’s my middle name?
