Do you want to help me with a name?

So DH and I had the names all picked out. I changed my mind and didn't like A's middle name, LOL. So now she is middle nameless. B's name is done and that won't be changing - I am perfectly happy with it. It's not DH's favorite, but it's agreed upon enough. B's name (also in my siggy) is Lorelei Isis.
Now, I think we've come up with a middle name for A that we both agree on, but I wanted to get some other opinions from people who haven't been thinking about it for months, LOL. We sort of like: Novarra Lily.
Now, I LOVE the name Lily, but I do think that DH's family has a Lilly in it somewhere, and I wasn't sure if it would go well at all with the rest of the names that are picked out.
I look at Novarra as sounding more masculine (to me) than Lorelei, so I wanted something more feminine for her middle name. Do you like Lily? (LOL Madalexesmom will like it I guess, I just remembered that is your dds name) Does it sound OK with everything else? How would you spell it in this situation? DH said he would like it to end with an i, but I'm not sure how to do that. Does Lili even spell out the right word? If Lily was 4 letters both of their names would be the exact same length - which is what I wanted. Do you like it with her first name? If you don't like it, or have any other ideas PLEASE feel free to offer them up! We tend to like more unusual names, and don't want to do middle names like Anne or such (that's my middle name, LOL).
I don't want to come across as bashing other people's kids names, I'm just trying to get ours to match well enough to sound good and get it so we can agree on it. LOL
Thanks - that was a long post!

Re: Do you want to help me with a name?

I love the name Lily, if my either of my last 2 sons had been a girl it would have been their name. If dh wants it to end in i I would go with Lili, it would match well with Isis.

How are you pronouncing Novarra? I hope I spelled that right.

Uh... No-vahr-uh. LOL, I think that was phonetically correct.
I know, I was thinking Lili, too. I said that to DH and he thought it would be like lee-lee, KWIM?

Re: Do you want to help me with a name?

Hmm...yeah everyone seems to like it that I talk to. DH and I will definitely sit down and make sure it's something we're happy with. I'm much happier with it than I was with the original middle name she had. I was concerned it was too mainstream, but honestly who sees their middle name anyway.
Duh! I forgot to check and see if it spelled anything bad (intials) but NLS is nothing bad, right?
Hm,mmm, it doesn't actually sound GREAT with our last name, LOL. But I don't know what will, I hate our last name! I wish I could have had DH take my maiden name!

Re: Do you want to help me with a name?

lorelai was the girls name that we had picked out as well...but we're having a boy!!!
i like Lili as well....i think it looks better next to her twins name that way. i can't think of anything else 4 lettered that i like with Novarra.....if i do think of anything i'll suggest it!
i was going to suggest anne as well hehe...but you said nope!
