Five-name Friday: Girl name for Nola’s sister

You’re playing a round of mini-golf with some friends. The group behind you includes a friendly lady who happens to be pregnant, and the two of you chat on-and-off between holes. Somewhere around hole 17 she mentions that she still can’t think of a name for the baby. Then she tells you the gist of what she’s looking for:

A two-syllable name for Nola’s sister. Can’t have the long “ee” sound in it or end in “s.”

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions on the spot. But your friends have already started teeing off on the last hole, so you only have time to give her five baby name suggestions before parting ways.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in public?
  • Five names only! All names beyond the first five in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

A two-syllable name for Nola’s sister. Can’t have the long “ee” sound in it or end in “s.”

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
