In Response to Sibling for Rowan

What do you think of Sydney as a gender-neutral girl's name?  I rediscovered it when I was going through  the lists I had for Rowan.   Any ideas for middle names?

On the boy's side of things, my Mom has got me thinking of one-syllable names: Sean and Grant are 2 favorites.   What do you think?

I guess I'm in the minority, but I really like Charlize Ryker.   It's strong and unusual, and I like the sound.   Coming across her name for the first time, I would assume that Ryker was a family connection (honored relative, mother or grandmother's maiden name.)   Go for it!

In Response to Sibling for Rowan

I do like the name Morgan and I think you all have  a good point about not choosing too "girly" a name for number 2, lest that make everyone think that Rowan is a boy.  It's funny - Morgan is a name that my father wanted for me, but my mother absolutely hates it.

It's interesting that Teagan is considered to be a unisex name - I've only ever known girls with that name.

I've been thinking about Cameron too - I think I like it better for a boy than a girl.

For middle names, I like my parents' names: Cavan and Karen.  I wouldn't use them as first names though, and I'll only use one of them if they flow nicely with the first name I choose.

My fallback middle names are Alexander and Elizabeth.  There's no special significance except that I think they both work really well to stitch together most first and last names, they both have gravitas, and they both have a wide assortment of nicknames for the child to choose from.

In Response to Brother for Benjamin

I have a cousin Benjamin with brothers Nicholas and Timothy - I think the 3 work nicely together as a sibset.

Andrew, Geoffrey, and James are also good.  Of them all, I like James best with Christopher and Nicholas with Daniel.
