Sister to Archer and Esme

Running out of time!  We are expecting our third girl in less than a week...  Older sisters are Archer Reese and Esme Quinn.  Any and all creative/constructive suggestions would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance for your help!

I'd love to hear the ideas you have to be sure I'm going in the right direction, but in absence of that and based on your other girls' names, I would imagine you might like names like:

Harper, Shea, Greer, Tierney, Piper, Rowan, Rory

Because Archer is a masculine name to me, and Esme has a much more feminine feel, I personally would want to find a name that seems to straddle the two styles -- a name that doesn't make either of the older girls feel left out, and one that doesn't make people automatically assume you have two boys and a girl. Archer, Esme, and Ryan, for example, would strike people as a family with two boys and a girl.

I think all the names I listed above would hit somehwere in the middle between Archer and Esme, and I personally would love to see them paired with a feminine name, like Juliet, Scarlett, Violet, Carys, Elise. Some combos I like include Harper Juliet, Rory Scarlett, Piper Carys, Greer Elise. Good luck!

Thanks so much for these awesome suggestions.  You are definitely going in the right direction with the types of names we like.  Of those you listed, Rowan, Greer, and Tierney are some of our favorites.  I really like your suggestion of pairing with a more feminine name.  Elise and Juliet are on our short list for sure.  Thanks again!

Hi all,

Quick update -- we ended up going with with Indigo Neve (pronounced "Nev").  She was born on January 21.  Thanks again for all your great suggestions!

Congratulations! I like how they all begin with vowels. Next up: Otto and Ursula?
