Sibling name ideas for Mercedes, Leila, & Nicolai
Hubby & I are thrilled to be expecting baby #4 in January. Our children's names are Mercedes Elizabeth, Leila Naomi, & Nicolai Aleksander. We're searching for the perfect sibling name!
We're not finding out the sex so we need ideas for both boy and girl. We're still in the brainstorming phase, and we're not having as easy a time as we did previously (My husband told me while we were dating that his first son would be named Nicolai, which went perfectly with my grandfathers name beside it- too easy!!!)
So far, he's veto'd Malachi (which I thought would be a perfect brother name for Nicolai) and I don't care for his #1 girl choice, Scarlett. I really love the names Delilah (as in Samson and) and Dahlia (as in My Black) but they similar-sounding to my Leila- who is definitely one-of-a-kind! The only name we both think we like is Jameson- we are taking some time to think about it.
Once we share our exciting news with our children, I know our girls (who are 9 & 13) will be participating in the debate. Just looking for ideas- my heart isn't set on trendy, classic, specific nationality, or popularity. But I have tried very hard to avoid the top 100 most popular names for my other children during the years they were born. (I cannot help what trends after choosing a name, but at that point, it doesn't matter, since its a different age group:) I have this preference because I grew up in a class with 3 Tiffany's and 3 Jennifer's and I'm trying to avoid my son/daughter having multiple classmates with the same name. I happen to love some of the popular names, but its just my personal preferenceto avoid them; besides, I jusst love when people sompliment my children's names (and I've had a coworker & a babysitter both use one of my children's name because they loved it so much), which didn't bother me.
Sorry I wrote a book~iNsoMniA~ I'm so excited, so its even harder to sleep so I thought I'd ask for suggestions... anything that gets the conversation going & the ideas popping! Thank You!
