Sibling for Oliver and Eloise

Having a hard time coming up with a name that goes with these. They flow so well together. I love Evelyn, but think it's too similar to Eloise.

My oldest is Miles, so naturally I'm going to endorse it :)

However- if you're concerned with popularity, I would take into consideration that Miles ranked 111 in 2012. I have a feeling it'll be in 2013's top 100, and if not, then it will very likely be in 2014's. If this doesn't bother you, then it's a great name. We occasionally call my son Milo, which I think is adorable :)

I also really love Emmett- actually, it may be tied with Miles. Quintin, however, I'm not too crazy about. 

Oliver and Eloise are both really 'flowy' names, so I'd suggest Miles. Emmett is a little bit clunkier. But of course it's slightly less popular, so that may be the dealbreaker for you. 

I adore Evelyn and I don't think it's too similar to Eloise. But it's super popular right now. You may want to check your statewide statistics, because your child could potentially end being one of 2 or 3 Evies or Evelyn's. But if that doesn't bother you, I love it with Oliver and Eloise. One more thing you might want to consider is that Eloise and Evelyn would have the same initial, which might make Oliver feel left out.

I love Vivienne, but only spelled Vivian. It sounds similar to Evelyn but isn't as popular. It is a bit clunkier than your other kids' names, though.

Violet is too trendy in my opinion. Have you considered Viola? I think it goes really nicely with Oliver and Eloise.

Lydia is also a top 100 name, but I have yet to meet one of any age. It's super gorgeous and goes well with Oliver and Eloise, very similar in style.

A few suggestions: Charles, Everett, Felix, Henry, Leo, Theodore, Alice, Belle, Charlotte, Gloria, Helena, Josephine, Julia, Juliet, Lillian, Lucy/Lucille, Nora

Good luck!

My favorites with Oliver & Eloise are Miles and Lydia. 

I agree that Quentin & Emmett are more clunky than Oliver & Eloise. And I think that Miles is just a fantastic name. (I'm considering it as a middle name if we have another boy.)

I agree that Evelyn is too similar to Eloise. I also don't like repeating the starting initial of any of the kids which is just my personal OCD. I adore the name Vivienne (it's in the running, actually, if we have another girl), but I think it's more clunky than Oliver or Eloise. I quite like Violet, and I really like it with Oliver, but Eloise sounds a bit off with it to me for some reason. And there's nothing that I dislike about Lydia with the pair.

Hope that helps! Good luck!
