What about Jeremiah? Was a bullfrog! Was a good friend of mine!
That's completely not how I say Karina (or the three Karina's I know don't pronounce their name that way).
Kuh-REE-na is how I've always heard this one pronounced.
I know this is more out there, but I've been lately playing around with the idea of Iolanthe nn Thea.
Must sic my husband on this coding idea..... Love it!
Florian (b), Celeste (g), Roland (b), Camille (g), Elodie (g), Anatole (b), Lisette (g), Gerard (b),
I could easily do either A, E, or M for girls and either A or M for boys.
(not all of these would be used, I'd have to make choices)Anneliese, Amelia, Abigail, Alexandra, Ariadne, Annabel, ArleyEvangeline, Eleanor, Eloise, Elisabeth, Elspeth, Evelyn, Emaline, EstellaMargaret, Madeleine, Moriah, Miriam, Myrtle, Minerva, Michaela
Alexander, Arthur, Alistair, Aubrey, Ariel, Arley, Alonzo, AndersMatthew, Matthias, Malcolm, Milton, Maxwell, Merritt
Darn it! Two of my favorite names are on this list! Linnea and Matthias.
Congratulations! Lovely name! :-)
One I found fascinating on names (the subject matter actually is all about naming) is:The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Excellent. Thank you!
I know two little Christabels. Both go by Chrissy which seems very dated to me (both are under age 10).
Ok--which one is a good one to start with?
Congratulations! I'm trying to convince my hubby that Theodore is the right name if we have another boy! :-)
My only suggestion at this point (you've gotten great responses on the middles) is that since all 5 girls have their own first initial that you keep that trend so that no one has all three the same initials.
That leaves you with:Mary or Olivia for girlsandOliver, Henry, Oscar, and Felix for boys.Of those choices, I think any of the girls' names fits well and Oliver or Henry fit well with your girls (although I love both Oscar and Felix).Other girl ideas:Katherine, Felicity, Margaret, Isobel, Iris, Josephine, Madeleine, Naomi, Sarah
Other boy ideas:Thomas, James, Joseph, Ethan, Evan, Vincent, Frederick, Donovan
Going from the Roy, you could also look at Stephen (Biblical, but not on your list) which means "crowned one" which you could get to via Roy meaning "King".
Another idea is to look for something that meant something to the man you are trying to honor. Was he into cars, animals, football, etc. Then look for something meaningful from there.
There are many ways to honor someone.
I agree also.
Congratulations! That is a beautiful name! :-)
After years of snubbing his nose at it, hubby finally came around about a month ago saying that he likes the name Eleanor "somewhat". I don't have another decade to wear him down though...
I've got Robin Hobb's on my to read list. Working on Boneshaker now (local Seattle steampunk!).
Your pattern is similar to ours (after just two kids), but one that most people will have no clue to. A die hard namie will get the origin pattern, but other than that, you should be good to go.
(Our pattern is 4 syllable Greek origin names in vowel order. We have an A and an E so far. We joke that we have to have girls from here on out to get: Isadora or Iolanthe, Olivia, and Uropia) LOL!
