Arden? Evyn?

Hm, while Noah is ranked #1 in the US, Jacob is #3.. which makes me wonder if you think there are too many Noahs, would you end up feeling like there's too many Jacobs once you chose it?

I like Silas slightly more because of it being less common, but then it seems almost too unique next to Caleb. 

My suggestion would be Isaac - similar in popularity to Caleb, biblical. 

Good luck!

In Response to Opinions on Sedona?

Sedona made me think of the newer/trendy name Sienna, so it works for me. I didn't know about the car..but that's not a deal breaker to me anyway (think Shelby, Harley, etc). Also think it falls in with other city/place names - Brooklyn, London, etc. If you wanted a nickname I would suggest Ona (~own-ah), but lots of people prefer not to use nicknames so I don't think it matters unless you want one. 

I like middles that are old family I usually suggest looking into a family tree or using mom or grandmas maiden name.

In Response to Expecting # 4!

Hm, if it were me, I would want to avoid repeating first initials, and I wouldn't want another ending in a. With that in mind:

For a girl: Hazel or Pearl

For a boy: Neil, Jules, or Leo

Liz? Eliza?

Well, I definitely don't think Knox "goes" with the sibs.

Charlie does but if he does NOT like Charlie at all.. then I'd say that's out too.

what about Emerette or Everette - nn. Rhett? Bowden - nn. Bo/Beau?

Random ideas: George or Leo?

I totally agree with Kyrie - Arthur/Oscar sound similar to my ear as well. They are also my two favorites for the boys. I lean more towards Arthur, because in my mind it just "goes" better with Ellie. I was trying to think of a compromise/hybrid between the two.. maybe Ezra? Archer?

For girls, Hazel is by far my favorite. I like the idea of Hazel Edith. Ellie Grace & Hazel Edith.  

Good luck!

German name ideas: Annika, Elsa, Marina, Mia, Selma.

Marina could be a more quirky/fresher version of Marie.

Britta isn't German but is similar to the German Brigitta. Might be a good compromise?

I think Cruz is an awesome name. I will point out I think it reads very Victoria Beckham (imo).

I think August is a nice German name that fits well with Zoe and Declan. I might also throw out Elias, Julian, or Luca for German name ideas.

In Response to Sibling name for Raina

Hm, I know a Raina with sister Eve. Does Eve appeal to you? Elva, Kyrie, Veena?

In Response to A brother for Victor

i like Hugo & Oscar but I don't think they "go with" Victor.

Julian? That's a fairly easy name for Spanish and English. Nn. Julz?

Cruz - idt there's a good nickname, but it's "truly" international imo bc of the spanish & Portuguese origins, but English speakers will have no problem with it.

Emilio/Emil is pretty well known thanks to Emilio Estevez and Emile Hirsch.

Rafael - nn. Raf I like, only negative is TMNT association.

Manuel - really international. Spanish, Portuguese, German, Romanian, English, Italian, & Greek I think!

Mateo, Nico, Lorenzo nn. Enzo - all Spanish names, but all the boys I know with them are European.

In Response to Named into a corner!

Oh, I guess I'll also throw out: Suzume (possible nn. Zuzu, Zumi, Su), Sarika, Swan, Swift?

I really like Swift actually - Sparrow, Starling, & Swift?

In Response to Named into a corner!

Hm, I think this depends a lot on personal preference.

To me, I'd rather have the same initials than worry about them all being "bird names."

I.e. Sparrow, Starling, & Phoenix vs. Sparrow, Starling, & Stasia - Phoenix would stand out a lot more to me as the 3rd than Stasia would.. even though Stasia is not a bird name.

But it could also depend on what the name your considering is I guess.

Do you mind sharing it?

October 9, 2014 11:46 AM

For you, I would really like Greta, Zophia, or Iro for a girl. Lukas, Leo, or Tomas for a boy.

October 7, 2014 09:24 PM

FWIW, I really like Nolan. I didn't even realize it was top 100.

Brogan, Keegan, Lawson, Curren, Callan, Gannon?

In Response to No Idea Where toStart

I won't comment on personal opinions regarding the names just yet. Instead, I will just focus on narrowing down the list. Some tips:

if there is a significant other, ask them to cross out any name they will absolutely not agree to.

Go through and cross out your five bottom boy & girl names. Ditto for SO.

Split the lists, as you've already started doing, into Boys Firsts, Boys middles, ditto for girls, so you can concentrate on smaller subsets of names.

Consider popularity. Consider if you'll mind constantly correcting people on spelling/pronounciation.

Check for duplicate names among friends, neighbors, cousins, etc. & eliminate those if that's the kind of thing that bothers you.

In Response to #4

Girls: Piper, Tatum, Cecillia

Boys: Reed, Logan, Cole

Margo was the first name that came to my mind 

Another idea - which may seem common to you, but definitely won't be to your children is Megan/Meghan. 

Going off that, I've always loved Morgan & see it as a "beautiful classic."

September 30, 2014 07:41 AM

ugh, hate to say it but if I saw " Yorkabel" out of context, I would probably think it was the name of a Yorkshire/Belgrade terrier mix. : /


September 28, 2014 08:09 PM

Birdie is just way to nicknamey for me. When I think of a CEO Birdie with no full name to go by..ugh. 

Rowen I have the same concerns as others - unisex. But, I also don't see Winnie from Rowen. 

Sophie I think is to common/popular for your style. 

Im hesitant about Bea bc I've always heard ppl say "you're a bia" as in .. b!tch. : /

Stella Thisbe is my favorite!
