A brother for Everett Jude

We have a two year old son named, [name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]. We just found out this week that number two is a little boy. I was so convinced I was having a girl, we have not really discussed boy names. I think we’d like [name_u]James[/name_u] as a middle name for number two. Names we like: [name_m]Abel[/name_m], [name_u]Arthur[/name_u]. Names we can’t use for various reasons: [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], [name_m]Atticus[/name_m], [name_u]Henry[/name_u]. Second question- Everett’s cousins are all named “E” names - [name_m]Edmund[/name_m], [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. It’s unlikely he will have more than cousins. His name is coincidentally an “E” name also. Would number 2 feel left out at not have an “E” name also?

I don’t think he’d feel left out, most people don’t compare initials with their cousins, just their siblings.

I really like [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] with [name_u]Everett[/name_u]! You may also like:
[name_u]Laurence[/name_u] / [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u]

I don’t think he’d feel left out, it’s more up to you and your family! Like mentioned above, he might feel unique! I like the idea of suggesting E names and non E names, though if your preferences I love [name_m]Abel[/name_m]!



[name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u] is a fabulous name!!

I don’t think he needs an E name unless you have one you love! He might feel special having a different letter - or not even think on it at all.

[name_m]Abel[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] are both great - especially like [name_m]Abel[/name_m]!

Since little guy is going to have a J middle like [name_u]Everett[/name_u] does AND all the cousins have E names, I actually lean toward an E name and my suggestions will reflect that. If you’re not into it, no problem, you’ve got lots of other feedback here. :blue_heart:

I don’t think baby 2 would feel left out without an E name; like someone else on this thread, most people compare names with siblings and not cousins. Out of the two you like, I love [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] (one of my top 5 boy names), but [name_m]Abel[/name_m] is lovely too. There’s some E options in here, though!

I love [name_u]Callum[/name_u] but I can’t get my husband on board with it.


Currently crushing on:

[name_u]Forest[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] (husband says he likes it). I really liked [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] a few days ago but I think it was too ‘out there’ for my husband.

I love so many of these names!
