What happened to Owen?


How about Owen Tristan?

I agree with a previous poster that a family connection to your side would be great with this son since Miller got his dad’s name.

In Response to Name Nerd paralysis?

OT names for boys:

Micah, Isaiah, Isaac, Benjamin, Joseph, Jonah, Nathan, David, Caleb


Scotch/Irish (I think) - Owen, Evan, Ian 


if I were having a boy, his name would be Luke Timothy.

Greta is lovely! And you have a great short list of middle names. I like 

Greta Elizabeth or

Greta Rose or 

Greta Faith - a subtle theme of virtue names for the 2 sisters



I like Bennett Charles best. I would avoid the B.S. initials.

In Response to Alyssa

I think it is a lovely name and not a "mom" name. The only Alyssa I know is 14. I like the "y" spelling. If you both love it, then use it! I cannot think of any pop culture references.

In Response to New prince or princess

I was thinking that Princess Charlotte probably got double credit for honoring Prince Charles and Duchess Kate'a mother Carole. I doubt there will be a Princess Caroline.

I am hoping for Mary or Alice for a princess and David for a prince.

Great choices! And congrats on 3 boys.

I echo the same concern about Gabriel & Samuel sharing an "el" ending with Nathaniel. 

Of your other choices, my favorites are Jonas, Gideon & Julian.

Other choices with the classical/Biblical vibe that i love:

Timothy, Isaac, Isaiah

In my opinion, Gabe & Grace siblings are fine. Also to me Grace sounds fine with your last name. Your questions about the nickname Gracie would be the concern I would pay attention to, especially if your husband lIves it. Even if he didn't, your daughter might love it and call herself Gracie. This happened with my sister Jennifer. My mom did not care for "Jenny" but my sister did and in high school introduced herself to her friends as Jenny. 

I agree with others that it is a lovely name and fits great into your sibling set. I guess the other issue is your preference for non-repeatbig initials but that I am up to you. They could always use their first initial.middle initial. If you love it, none of these are deal breakers.  I actually know a brother-sister subset named Gabe & Grace. 

BTW - I love Mary-Grace!

In Response to Talk to me about Sarah

I think I remember the Mark/Mary discussion from your last pregnancy! We have a Mary so I track those discussions pretty faithfully.  It sounds like lots of good options... Lucy is sweet!

In Response to Talk to me about Sarah

It is tough to anticipate all the sound similarities and possible confusions.  IMO, Sarah/Claire's similar sounds aren't a deal-breaker but it depends on your comfort level.  Are you still considering another girl's name or are you pretty set?

I love Johanna and that pronounciation and agree with many that it pairs better with Felicity. I also like that each sister would have her own initial letter and ending sound. 

I am a huge C.S. Lewis fan but agree that Edmund and Caspian might be too much, but they are both strong names so if you feel strongly about it, I think they could work.  

I am impressed that you can wait to be surprised on the genders! Best of luck!

In Response to Talk to me about Sarah

Beautiful & classic! It is my sister's name and has grown with her.  I love your name choices & congrats on #8. I named my daughter Laura without realizing the similarity in sound to Sarah (my sister). When I am around both of them, I call them by each other's names sometimes. Not a bad thing ... I just wondered if you had noticed.

Both names are great. I have a slight preference for

Molly because I think it sounds better with your last name. Katherine Sullivan has double -en sound endings. I prefer a different ending. Molly Katherine is lovely!
