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

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
