Looking for a sibling name for Cyrus
My son's name is Cyrus Boone, and he'll be a big brother in a few months. We'll find out the gender in about three weeks, so this post is jumping the gun a little bit, but I wanted to get a head start on looking for a name for his baby brother or sister. We're kind of a cliche in that we like names that are somewhat classic but not super common. However, I'm not hyper vigilant about avoiding names based on ranking -- for example, we really like Audrey, which is in the top 40s and rising, and that's fine. My husband and I generally like the same type of names, though he actually likes them a little more uncommon than I do.
At this point, I partially just want to get the names down and on paper. I'd also love suggestions for names with the same vibe, especially boy names, since we don't have many of those. Also, any thoughts on first and middle combinations would be awesome.
Top Girl names:
Girl names, middle only:
Girl names, maybe but probably not:
Boy names, middle only:
Granville (this has been a family name for at least four continuous generations, so it's a strong contender)
Boy names, maybe but probably not:
Aubrey (I love this as a boy name, but it's in the top 20 for girl names now)
August (we live in Texas, where the month of August sucks -- it would be kind of like naming a Chicago baby "February").
Cyprus (too close to Cyrus)
Silas (I love this name, but obviously it's way too close to Cyrus)
