In Response to The name Jesus

Not an answer, but when I was in elementary school a class down the hallway always had different seasonal things with their names on them posted on their bulletin board. Always Jesus was in the middle. 

My religious upbringing made me think, "Aw, that's so sweet that their class always makes a special nametag for Jesus!"

It took me a few years to figure out that the nametag wasn't for Jesus Christ but for a Hispanic student named Jesus.

What about Flynn, Winston, Owen, or Gavin?

In Response to Sister for Evelyn

If you're planning to use nicknames, I think those are fine choices. Personally, I'd want to avoid the ends in -lyn sound, though you really seem to like ends in -n choices. Corinne is my favorite of the two choices you listed because it has a slightly different ending sound and a different number of syllables. 

Other possible suggestions that have that trait but seem a little further away from Evelyn are: Shannon, Diane/Diana, Alison

Kylie, Kim's sister, revealed her daughter's name is Stormi. Interesting choice in light of recent news.

I'm just picturing email addresses and other instances where her name will appear as West, Chicago. Maybe this isn't something celebs have to worry about.

I like your choices! Though I'd probably lean toward using Hart as a middle name. 

Other options: Gerard, Lance, Warren...

Boys: Oliver & Griffin

This is the first name I thought of too! I loved that book as a kid.

As a Kathryn, I really like my name. No matter which spelling you go with, your daughter will likely have to spell out her name every time someone has to write it. I’ve started going by Kate at Starbucks just because it’s easier. 

My second favorite spelling after my own is Catherine, but even with the traditional spelling, the others are common enough that your daughter would have to denote which spelling she uses. I say pick the one you like the best.

I love Rowan. Ronan could be an easy alternative, if you don’t want to match the girls in the neighborhood. 

November 20, 2017 03:22 PM

I really love Georgina and Archie from your lists, but I’m not sure if they make the best sibset. Would you have a long form of Archie? I’d also be hesitant to use Georgina with Georgie as a nickname in a boy/girl twinset. Without the nickname, I think it’s perfect. 

Other girl names you might like: Josephine, Wilhemina, Mina

Boys: Arthur, August, Archer

Noel could seem a tad Christmasy, but I don’t think that’s a negative. Pronounced one-syllable Nole, I think the association is pretty minimal. 

Walden had a similar vibe to Wilder to me, which is another reason I suggested it. 

November 17, 2017 04:06 PM

Of the original names you're still considering, Winston is my favorite. 

I really like the suggestions of Noel, Caspian, and Cassian that have been made already. 

I wanted to toss in Walden. It has the W you all seem to like and a literary connection to boot. 

Good luck!

Kate gets my vote, but I like Molly too. 

November 5, 2017 09:09 PM

Casting another vote for Leon nicknamed Leo! It seems like the best compromise.

I love Augustine, both the saint and the town. It has strong Catholic/religious vibes and I definitely think boy when I hear it.  That said, I think with the right nn a girl could pull it off.

In Response to Quads! Name help

On the note of Alice and Claire repeating too many letters, would something like Alissa or Alicia fit the bill? Alice is my favorite of the given choices.
