  1. I can’t see your sister being called Electrolux, Moulinex, Hoover or Phillips, unless you wanted a nickname to annoy her in which case Hoover might work if she ate keenly… :)

    If we are talking about first names (although it’s normally parents who choose names, not siblings even though they might be consulted), any of the rest would be feasible except perhaps G. I’m sure it would give a psychiatrist a lot to think about if your sister was named after your favourite doll too.

    I’m going to go for E – after your granny.

    When I was pregnant with number 2, my son was convinced the baby was a boy and named him Bastien accordingly. We didn’t actually want a son called that but we added it in so he has a first name and two middle names.

    • ” I’m sure it would give a psychiatrist a lot to think about if your sister was named after your favourite doll too.”

      – Yes, it is, indeed, giving my analyst a lot of work to know that my mother named me after her favorite doll. :-)

      “If we are talking about first names (although it’s normally parents who choose names, not siblings even though they might be consulted)”

      – I’m guessing that even at that time the plan was for me to parent her.

  2. I helped name my sister too!!! :) I’m going to make a wild guest and say G: friend’s pet guine pig. :) (Though it strikes me that your nickname “klubnikis” for your neice could be a guinea pig name too.) But I’m going to stick with G. :)
