Elizabeth will inevitably get shortened to Lizzie or Beth, so it might not be the best idea if you really want the E theme. Also, the ‘Eliza’ part seems very similar to Elijah. 

Other E names: Elodie, Elle, Emma, Elena, Eileen, Estelle, Erin, Eden

Eva is nice, Emilia is lovely! You have gone for very classic middle names for your first two kids, so I would suggest:

Emilia Anne

Emilia Louise 

Emilia Lynn

Emilia Alice

Emilia Claire

Emilia Therese

Emilia Vivian

Emilia Marie 

Emilia Sophie

Emilia Isabelle (the middle name of actress Emilia Clarke! Fun reference if you or your partner are Game of Thrones fans)

I forgot to mention above, but I don’t really like either James or Keira, they sound bland and boring to me. My partner and I think it’s important that the kids have names we both like (and don’t get me wrong, he does like Milo) , so since we’ve still got some time before birth, we would rather try and hunt for names for a perfect sibset! 

I could live with Milo and James/Keira, but only as a last resort.

Some good suggestions in there-

I like Eli, but I’m not too fond of Elias or Elijah

Caden and Tessa, or Cade and Tess, are super cute!

I love Ari, but it was vetoed for being to feminine.

I might also like names that create an alliteration with ’M’: 

Milo and Mason

Milo and Maya, except I prefer the spelling Maia 

How does Jamie sound (for a girl) ? It would be a nice compromise since my husband wants to name our son James

One more question: we‘re such fans of Theo despite it being the name of my brother in law, that I’m considering Thea for a girl. Would it be too weird for little Thea to have an uncle Theo? We could also pronounce it the French way, with the hard ‘t’

I’m thinking Cruz (Spanish for cross), Rook (the chesspiece), Sailor, Bentley, Zen and Phoenix for boys

And Estrella (Spanish for star) Glass, Briar, Eden and Sapphire for girls

In Response to Best & Worst

Mine are both twins. 

Worst: 

Augustine Francisco and Constantine Reynaldo. What a mouthful!

Best:

Darcy and Dorian (unfortunately don’t know the middles)

Sound cute together and I like the literary theme.

Mother loves quirky, vintage names. Father’s family is half Portuguese, so would prefer names that are pronounced easily in both English and Portuguese. What would they name their two boys and two girls?

Hugo Francisco

Bruno Lionel 

Magdalena Elvira (Lena for short) 

Adelaide Camilla 

Mom is obsessed with the glamour of old Hollywood and dad wants to honor his ancestors with some classic French middle names. What interesting name combinations would they come up with for their 2 boys and 3 girls?

All religious connotations aside- the nickname for this name is horrible. Do you really want your little boy to go by Lucy or Luci (to me, that sounds like the stripper version of Lucy) ? That’s a traditional girls name, and that alone would most likely result in merciless teasing. Also, you described this vivid image of a child the name gave you in your head- that is NEVER a good idea. The actual child would most likely be different from this fantasy, so it feels like you’re unfairly setting the child up to disappoint you. 

Have you considered Lyle, Linus or Lachlan? Or Luc (the French version of Luke, uncommon and sounds beautiful)

If John is too plain, have you thought of spelling it Jon (if you can live with the Game of Thrones connotation) ? Or maybe go for the French version Jean? Or Sean, that sounds very similar!

Instead of William, you could go with just Will- that’s what it will be shortened to anyway. 

Otherwise, I would suggest: Ryan, Finn, Mark, James, Owen, Max, Noah, Liam
