Is it okay? vs. What do you think?

We’re having twin girls in mid to late March, and we recently told friends and family that we had decided that their first names would be Brooke _____(?) and Rebekah Laurel and that we liked Bekah as a sometimes nickname for Rebekah. One of my friends briefly mentioned she thought it weird that one would get a nickname and the other wouldn’t. I dismissed it at the time (and she didn’t press it, so this isn’t "her fault"), but now I can’t stop thinking about it. *Is* it weird? Also, we’re still on the hunt for a middle name for Brooke. All ideas welcome (no boy names though!). Thanks so much, Heather

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
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.
