A reader named Zoe is adopting twin girls and needs help choosing their names:
What I like are classic names that are NOT common. I also like names that are not easily given nicknames, as I want my daughters to use their full, formal names.
Her top two picks (first & middle) are currently Veronica Sophia and Lydia Nicole. (Sophia and Nicole are both family names.) She also likes Sabrina, Amelia, Vanessa, Cecilia, AnnaSophia, and similar names.
Personally, I love Zoe’s current favorites and think she should stick with them. :) But, just in case, here are some other classic, not-too-common, hard-to-shorten girl names she might like:
What other suggestions would you offer Zoe?
