In Response to Naming baby #4 (GIRL)

I love Lucia!!! I like how it echoes Emilia (same ”ia” ending) but doesn’t rhyme.  And it links the girls’ names together. 

all of them are lovely. I am just not a fan of the similar sounds of Noah/Hannah when you say them together. That is my preference to have each name be more distinctive.  Somehow with Emilia/Lucia the similar endings are a plus. Maybe the different number of syllables helps? And that they are both girls?

Amelia is a beautiful choice and I agree with others that “an M somewhere in the name” is a great compromise.  I think it sounds lovely with your other daughters’ names.  

 

Emmett is a great name but I can understand your concern with sister Charlotte. If you are happy using Maxwell or another M name as a middle for a boy, what are you and your husband’s favorite boy names? Theo? Theo Maxwell? Sounds good to my ears.

In Response to Twin Girls Names!!!

Congrats!

I am a big fan of honor names and although a I do not have twins, I have three children and have them all middle names that honor family.

So, my advice would be that if you are going to give one daughter an honor name that you also give the other twin an honor name too. Just to be fair. 

I also like the idea of putting Phoebe/Pheobe in the middle spot.  

I love the idea  a short & sweet, international and for your girls. Ben reads that way to me as it is popular in America but also Biblical/Hebrew. Someone will correct me on that i am sure. I just know that the Biblical Benjamin was a brother of Joseph. 

Options:

Anna Pheobe

Claire Adeline (for Adam)

Clara Jacqueline

I love it! My husband was just telling me about the first “king” I guess of England who successfully fought back the invading Vikings. So if they want to go Way Back, his name was Alfred (nn Al, Fred, Freddy, or Fritz). 

We are such a helpful crew!

Do you like Andrew? Similar in style to Matthew and also Biblical, but with different nicknames. Do you like Andy and Drew better than Matt/Matty?

Andrew was in our top 3 but I did not like how it sounded with our last name.

Both Alyssa & Ariana are lovely! For something unique, you could do Aria as a stand alone name or a nickname.

 

I like Beth as a one-syllable middle honoring Elizabeth

 

Alyssa Beth

Ariana Beth or

Aria Beth

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.

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

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.
