Please vs. Help vs. Clarify

Hello there! My husband and I are expecting baby number 3 (our second little boy) and need some clarification. Our two children are named Charles and Eleanor but go by Charlie and Ellie. Our family and many friends are saying we need to use another nickname ending in IE or LIE; the problem is though, we haven’t found any we love. Would it be a big deal to not use another name with a nickname ending in IE/LIE? Since he will be our last baby, would he feel "left out because his name isn’t like his sibling’s names"? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks! ~Rosemary

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?

Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
