There is a problem with the spelling.  As spelled Availie, I want to pronounce it as my brain sees it.  I see the word avail first, then ie more like a long i.  If you want it to be pronounced correctly, I would spell it Avalee or Avaleigh, which I think is a cute name.

Coen is also a name of a river in Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, Australia, near where you live...... It is also the shortened form of Coenraad (or Conrad) in the Dutch language.

I personally am not a fan of multiple middle names.  However, I also don't think you have to match siblings unless you want to...  After the age of 18, it is unlikely their sibling will be tied to them in any way, so the idea of matching names or not using names because they don't go with _____ is silly to me.

In Response to A More Creative "Lily"

What about going with Calla instead of Lily?  Since your cousin's name is Lily, I don't think respelling, etc. will work.

I don't know if you're Jewish or Christian, but this is just an example of how you can tie 2 names together and still give them their own identity.  

The Temple of Solomon had 2 pillars - Jachin and Boaz.  Jachin represented King Solomon, and Boaz represented King David.  

So you could name one twin Jachin Solomon/David and the other Boaz Solomon/David.

of your names, I like Brendon but don't care for the spelling.  I would spell it Brendan.  Also, if you like Brendan, what about Brennan?  I like Brennan better, but that's just me.  ;)

Spencer with Scott has to many sss in my opinion.

Hudson is ok.  

The rest of the names are not my style.

Other names to consider Torin, Lawson, Griffin

Of your names, I like Rowan the best.  I would pronounce Leif as Lafe, but that's just me.

In Response to Sister for Ruby

I like Hazel the best of your choices.  What about other precious stones like Beryl, Coral, Opal, Pearl, or Verdite?

In Response to Libby

In the book Loving Libby by Robin Lee Hatcher, Libby is a nickname for Olivia. It can also be short for Isabel and Lydia. Increasingly, it is being used as an independent name, especially in England.

In Response to nickname for Conrad

Coen could be a good nickname as it's the shortened form of Coenraad (Dutch form of Conrad).

I like the suggestion of Griffin as well.  I think it goes well with your names, and it isn't too common.  

May 29, 2017 08:54 AM

Abigail, Adah, Bethany, Eva, Faith, Grace, Hannah, Hope, Joanna (nn Jo), Julia, Leah, Lillian, Lois, Selah, Sarah (nn Sadie), Tabitha, Victoria

But like others have said, it's hard to make suggestions when I don't have more to go on.

Arin will be constantly mispelled, but it's doable.  Ayla / Iris are gaining in popularity, so they won't be a problem.  Solin is ok, but I've only ever heard of boys being called this with spelling as Solon.  The others on your list I'm not familiar with and would need help pronouncing.


I generally come up with a list, and my husband gives thoughts on each name.  So far, my style is very adventurous while his is more conservative.  However, he isn't opposed to adventurous names if they don't sound weird.  An example would be Solon or Coen.  But then there are some names he is opposed to that would be more common like Willow or Ansley.
