50 Stellar Sister Names That Just Fit Well Together

Congratulations! You are welcoming another baby girl or even twin girls. How exciting! Choosing a baby name for a single daughter can be a chore, but for two there’s even more to consider. You don’t want one name to outshine the other. You always want both names to sound smart together without one relying on the other. Chances are you’re not after those annoying rhyming pairs like Laura and Moira or Billie and Millie. So, what’s an expecting parent to do?

We’ve got you covered! Finding sister names for girls that compliment each other isn’t too terribly hard. And, our best advice is to just go with your gut and pick two names that you love. However, we’ve got some ideas to help make that easier for you. These baby names for girls pair well together and have similar lengths and structures so that they don’t seem completely random and will sound like you put a great deal of thought into them. These sister names strike the perfect balance and harmony. Take a look below!

Paisley & Piper

sister names

Paisley is a girl’s name of Scottish origin meaning “church.” There’s even a place with the name there. Piper is an English occupational name that means “flute player.” Both names have plenty of character on their own, but because they both start with a P, these two work extremely well together.

Everly & Eleanor

sister names

Everly is an English name with German roots that means “wild boar in a woodland clearing.” Okay! Eleanor is also an English name but it has French roots and means “other Aenor.” Okay! Both sister names are top 50 picks for girls in the US.

Ava & Aubrie

sister names

Ava is a Latin, Hebrew, and Germanic name that can mean “life” or “bird” or “water” or “island.” Take your pick! Aubrie is a name with German roots that means “elf ruler.” Both sister names are highly popular and they play very nicely with one another.

22. Isabelle & Octavia

sister names

Isabelle is the French form of the name Elizabeth which means “pledged to God.” Octavia has Latin origins and has been a favored name in majority English-speaking countries since the Victorian Era. The name means “eight.” Both sister names are charming and sound sophisticated together.

Aria & Arwen

sister names

Aria has origins in both Italian and Hebrew. It means “melody” in one case and “air” in the other. Arwen is a Welsh name that means “noble maiden.” Both sister names begin with Ar- making them sound very cute together without rhyming.

Gemma & Arabella

sister names

Sure you can always go with Gemma and Ruby but we decided to shake up an old favorite pairing. Gemma is an Italian name that’s beloved in the UK and recently has surged in the US. It means “precious stone.” Arabella is another Italian name in this instance it means “yielding to prayer.” Both sister names are flush with romance and style.

Freya & Lyra

sister names

You will definitely turn some heads if you choose Freya and Lyra for your daughters. Freya is an Old Norse name that means “a noble woman.” Lyra is a constellation name taken from the lyre of Orpheus. Both sister names are new additions to the top 1000 both making their debut in the mid-2010s.

Hazel & Rowen

sister names

Rowen or Rowan are two spelling options for an Irish name that means “little redhead.” Hazel is a classic English name that refers to the hazelnut tree. Hazel is currently a favorite for new parents but Rowan is only trailing a little behind it. These sister names sound exceptional together.

Evangeline & Cordelia

sister names

Evangeline is a Greek name that means “bearer of good news.” Cordelia has roots in both Irish and Latin and means “daughter of the sea” or “heart.” Saying one of these right after the other is a mouthful, but they both seem so strong and assured. Nicknames Eva and Lia sound so nice together, right?

Isla & Maren

sister names

Isla is a Scottish place-name and a Spanish word for “island.” Maren is a Latin name that means “sea.” These two have meanings that naturally fit and both sister names are very unique and charming.

Imogen & Violet

sister names

If you’re after a touch of vintage Victorian, go with Imogen and Violet. Imogen is a Celtic name that means “maiden.” Unlike Violet, Imogen has yet to enjoy the same popularity in the US as it does across the UK. Violet is more universally loved although it’s less complex. This English name with Latin origins means “purple.”

Rosemary & Helena

sister names

Rosemary refers to the delicious herb, of course, but it also means “due of the sea” in Latin. Helena has Greek origins and means “bright.” Both sister names have three syllables and balance each other out. Nicknames Rose and Lena sound pretty magical together.

Cora & Pearl

sister names

Cora is a name with Greek origins that is ties to the mythological Persephone. This handsome name means “maiden.” Pearl is a Latin gem name that’s making a comeback after falling from fashion in fifties. Both sister names have a timeless charm and sound very posh when paired together.

Pair these two complex G-names and you’ve created a winning couple. Genevieve is an English form of a French name that has roots in German (there won’t be test, don’t worry). The name means “tribe woman.” Gwendolyn has a more straightforward history as a Welsh name featured in Arthurian legend. The name means “white ring.” We’re tickled by the idea of nicknames Gen and Gwen.

sister names

If you’re after a Scottish pair, you’ve found them in Maisie and Fiona. Maisie means “pearl” and Fiona means “white, fair.” Both names have a pure meaning and they sound so playful and appropriate together. You’ll find both sister names in the top 500 baby names in the US.

Maisie and Greta share the same root, somehow. Greta is a diminutive form of the German name Margarethe. It too means “pearl.” We love the Greek name Phoebe that means “radiant.” Both names contain two syllables and end in a vowel. Phoebe and Greta sound like two little girls who will someday rule the world.

Juliette & Vivienne

sister names

Here’s another pair of sister names that share French origins. Vivienne is a distinguished choice that means “life.” Juliette is an adorable name that means “little Julia.” Juliette is currently more popular in the US than Vivienne but Viv’s quiet sophistication will make it a favorite yet.

Lexie & Suri

sister names

Lexie is an interesting name in that it was popular at the turn of both the 20th and 21st centuries. After the 1910s the name fell off the popularity charts before returning in the late nineties where it enjoyed a deal of favor. Now, the name is trending down. The name has Greek origins and means “defender of men.”

Suri is a Hebrew name and a form of Sarah which means “princess.” It also means “the sun” in Sanskrit, “rose” in Persian so there’s a lot of reasons to give this name. Suri has not enjoyed the same popularity as Lexie but we see that changing over the next few years! Lexie and Suri sound like some very close sisters. We love these names!

There you go! Do you feel inspired by these sister name pairings? We hope so! Naming a single baby is difficult and picking two sister names can be even worse. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself and, no matter what, pick two names you love. For more names that work together, keep reading.
