Baby Name Needed – Spunky Name for Sophie’s Little Sister

A reader named Mercedes is expecting a baby girl in December:

Our 4-year-old is named Sophie. We love it because it’s cute and spunky. We initially came up with Daphne Colette for baby girl #2. But the more I think about it, the more I worry that Sophie and Daphne sound too similar. What do you think? On that note, can you think of any other names that deliver the same cute and spunky sound?

I was on the fence for a while about Sophie and Daphne…but I think I ultimately agree that they’re too much alike. As for other spunky names, how about:

Astrid
Beatrix
Bettina
Billie
Brynn
Calliope
Chloe
Cleo
Daisy
Darcy
Della
Gemma
Gia
Lila
Lucy
Lyra
Maeve
Mia
Molly
Nelle
Nina
Penelope
Phoebe
Pia
Piper
Reese
Rory
Ruby
Stella
Sylvie
Tamsin
Tess
Zita

(Sylvie and Phoebe are probably too similar to Sophie as well, but I left them on the list just in case.)

What other ideas do you guys have?

P.S. Mercedes is also considering the names Kendall, Julianne, Lola and Gwen.
