Baby Name Needed – Name for Hannah’s Little Sister

A reader named Rebecca is expecting her second baby girl in a couple of weeks and needs help with a name:

Older sister Hannah Jeanne, last name is 1 syllable German starting with K. Looking for something timeless, with history and meaning, but not overdone.

I think the names below are all timeless and meaningful…and, as a bonus, none of them currently rank in the top 100.

Adeline
Bethany
Cecilia
Eleanor
Elisa
Judith
Lucia
Marion
Miriam
Paula
Phoebe
Priscilla
Rachel
Roberta
Sabina
Sarah
Simona
Susan
Theresa
Valerie

I think a 1-syllable middle (e.g. Lynn, Ruth, Eve, Belle) would work well with nearly any of the above. Plus, it would keep the style of the name very similar to that of Hannah Jeanne.

What do you guys think–what’s a good name for Hannah Jeanne’s little sis?

Update – The baby has arrived! Scroll down to the final comment to find out what her name is.

  1. I like Eleanor, Judith, Lucia, Miriam and Simona. Here are some more ideas:
    Adina
    Celia
    Evelyn
    Leah
    Leora
    Magdalen
    Marieka
    Naomi
    Nydia
    Reina
    Talia

  2. Here are some suggestions that are timeless, and I believe are all good matches with Hannah Jeanne “K.” I think if you play around with them, you’ll see that quite a few are interchangeable and work well together as both first and middle names. Hope this helps!

    Anastacia
    Aubrey
    Gabrielle
    Evangeline
    Gwyneth
    Alexandra
    Victoria
    Claudia
    Rebecca
    Sabrina
    Candace

  3. I’ve just heard from Rebecca. She decided on the name Eva Grace.

    Eva pronounced like it’s spelled, not Ava- though some people insist on trying to call her Ava since it has become so popular.

    Congratulations!
