A future brother for Blake?

Boy does this sound ridiculous! I took myself a catnap earlier and had myself a pleasant dream where [name]James[/name] and I were expecting a baby boy in addition to our beautiful little [name]Blake[/name]. I know it sounds silly as can be, but my overactive, name-loving mind has been entertaining names for a future son ever since. These are my favorites. What do you think of them? Does anyone have any further suggestions, whether it be for middle names, or more names in general?

Thanks, gals, for putting up with my bored and beached self! :wink:

[name]Constantin[/name]/[name]Constantine[/name] – I love, love, love both of these. [name]Constantine[/name] has long been my all-time favorite boys’ name, and we recently found [name]Constantin[/name] on our family tree.
[name]James[/name] – My husband’s name, which I love. It would definitely be in the middle, as neither of us are fans of [name]Jr[/name].‘s :slight_smile:
Joscelin – Another family name that I love.
[name]Lucien[/name]/[name]Lucian[/name] – Kind of the same story as [name]Constantine[/name]. I always loved [name]Lucian[/name], then discovered my husband had a great grandfather named [name]Lucien[/name].
[name]Bastien[/name] – Yet another family name. I slightly prefer it to [name]Sebastien[/name].
[name]Cullen[/name] – One of my few favorite names that has no sentimental value, but do I love it!
[name]Laurentin[/name] – Another gem from [name]James[/name]’ family tree that I’ve grown quite attached to.
[name]Enzo[/name] – I admit, I fell in love with this name because of the to-die-for Ferrari [name]Enzo[/name]. Probably not the best for a car nerd like me!
Antonin – I do love it, but would probably never use it for its closeness to one of [name]Blake[/name]'s middle names, [name]Antonia[/name].

[name]Constantin[/name]/[name]Constantine[/name]: I think it’s cool…

[name]James[/name]: I’ve always loved [name]James[/name]! :slight_smile: [name]LOVE[/name] it!

Joscelin: I know of about 4 Jocelyns, and they’re all girls. I love it on a girl, though!

[name]Lucien[/name]/[name]Lucian[/name]: I really like this name. Would you call him [name]Luc[/name] for short?

[name]Bastien[/name]: I can totally understand its appeal, but I’d be worried about bastard jokes.

[name]Cullen[/name]: I think [name]Cullen[/name] is great! (I’m not a Twilight person, but apparently this name may be destined for massive popularity due to the book.) I still love it, though!

[name]Laurentin[/name]: I think it’s really handsome…

[name]Enzo[/name]: I love [name]Enzo[/name], and think it’s fantastic with your last name! I think [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] is pretty cool. :slight_smile:

Antonin: Like you said, it’s pretty close to the gorgeous [name]Antonia[/name]. Wait. I just said it aloud, and it sounded like “antonym” to me! For me, [name]Antonia[/name] is perfect! :slight_smile:

Some more random names you may (or may not) like :slight_smile: :

[name]Elliot[/name] (with the lio part, I think [name]Leo[/name] is a cool nickname)
[name]Lazarus[/name] (reminds me of [name]Lucius[/name])
[name]Luca[/name] (ditto)
[name]Raphael[/name] (nn [name]Rafe[/name])

I think you’ve got a lot of cool names on your list! :slight_smile:

Oh, [name]Jill[/name], you have given me some wonderful ideas as always, thank you :slight_smile:

I am REALLY loving [name]August[/name] and [name]Augustin[/name]! And thank you so very much for the input on my other names! I was also pretty worried about [name]Bastien[/name]'s closeness to bastard, so it is probably out of the running. And I love [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name]!!! Up to the top of the list it goes :slight_smile: For the moment, I think it and [name]Constantin/name [name]James[/name] are my favorite combos.

[name]Constantin[/name]/[name]Constantine[/name] – I love, love, love both of these. [name]Constantine[/name] has long been my all-time favorite boys’ name, and we recently found [name]Constantin[/name] on our family tree. - love [name]Constantine[/name]!
[name]James[/name] – My husband’s name, which I love. It would definitely be in the middle, as neither of us are fans of [name]Jr[/name].‘s :slight_smile: - love
Joscelin – Another family name that I love. - great girls’ name
[name]Lucien[/name]/[name]Lucian[/name] – Kind of the same story as [name]Constantine[/name]. I always loved [name]Lucian[/name], then discovered my husband had a great grandfather named [name]Lucien[/name]. - cool
[name]Bastien[/name] – Yet another family name. I slightly prefer it to [name]Sebastien[/name]. - Oh, I love [name]Sebastian[/name]!
[name]Cullen[/name] – One of my few favorite names that has no sentimental value, but do I love it! - cool
[name]Laurentin[/name] – Another gem from [name]James[/name]’ family tree that I’ve grown quite attached to. - how do you pronounce it?
[name]Enzo[/name] – I admit, I fell in love with this name because of the to-die-for Ferrari [name]Enzo[/name]. Probably not the best for a car nerd like me! - I love [name]Lorenzo[/name] nn [name]Enzo[/name]. I also love [name]Henry[/name].
Antonin – I do love it, but would probably never use it for its closeness to one of [name]Blake[/name]'s middle names, [name]Antonia[/name]. - yeah, that would be too close. But I also love [name]Antonio[/name]. It would be even closer though.

I love that I am not the only person thinking of future siblings! Right now for girls my top two are [name]Frances[/name] [name]Anne[/name] or [name]Iris[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and for boys [name]Lowell[/name] (family name), [name]Conrad[/name] and [name]Byron[/name] (family name). (Oh and my little sister is attending OU right now but go HUSKERS! :))

[name]Constantin[/name]/[name]Constantine[/name] – I really like this but [name]Bastien[/name] is my fav… but once again family name trumps all :slight_smile: (if you love it equally)
[name]James[/name] – [name]Love[/name] it!
Joscelin – Second [name]Jill[/name] on it bieng a little too feminine for me.
[name]Lucien[/name]/[name]Lucian[/name] – I really like this! and once again family name… see [name]Laurentin[/name]…
[name]Bastien[/name] – [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] it! [name]Blake[/name] and [name]Bastien[/name]!
[name]Cullen[/name] – I like this… I know my husband would love it! He is attached to “c” names… [name]Caleb[/name]… [name]Colton[/name]… Conrand ([name]LOVE[/name] this though :))
[name]Laurentin[/name] – Family names work for me :slight_smile: As I stated before I am now a “southern girl” and around here family names pretty much always work!
[name]Enzo[/name] – This is nice but I think I like [name]Ezra[/name] better.
Antonin – I agree a too close to [name]Antonia[/name].

I am on vacation (but I just had to reply to your post [name]Kristen[/name]) or I would offer up some suggestions… I do however love [name]Augustin[/name]! (as always great suggestion [name]Jill[/name])

Thank you so much, [name]Susan[/name] :slight_smile: It’s so nice to have your input, I appreciate it immensely! [name]Laurentin[/name] is tricky for me to spell out phonetically, but it is pronounced Lo-rawn-tin.

Zard!! It is so great to see you again, I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing vacation :slight_smile: I am so touched that you were compelled to reply to my silly ramblings on your time off, haha! I feel so much better now that I know I’m not the only one thinking so far in advance. I love all of your choices, especially [name]Iris[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Conrad[/name]!

Tell your sister we are proud of her :wink: Haha!

[name]James[/name] has been helping me some with our list as well. He for some reason finds my new obsession adorable. This is what we’ve come up with (or rather, I’ve come up with and he’s given me the thumbs up) so far. He loves [name]Augustin[/name] nn [name]August[/name], [name]Jill[/name]!

[name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] / [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Lucien[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Cullen[/name] [name]James[/name]

I am determined to get his name in there :slight_smile: Haha! A little unsure as to which sounds best with [name]Blake[/name], though I doubt it it is my beloved [name]Constantine[/name].

Woo-hoo! High-fives to [name]James[/name] for loving [name]Augustin[/name]/[name]August[/name]! :slight_smile: (And from your other post, you’re so welcome, [name]Kristen[/name]!) :slight_smile:

[name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]: [name]Love[/name], but like you said, this one probably isn’t the best with [name]Blake[/name]…
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] / [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name]: I love this, [name]Kristen[/name]! :slight_smile: I think [name]Enzo[/name] and [name]Blake[/name] sound great together. :slight_smile:
[name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]: I love this, too, and think [name]August[/name] and [name]Blake[/name] make a great pair.
[name]Lucien[/name] [name]James[/name]: I think this is very handsome, but I think [name]Enzo[/name], [name]August/name, and [name]Cullen[/name] work better with [name]Blake[/name].
[name]Cullen[/name] [name]James[/name]: I think this is great, too! [name]Cullen[/name] and [name]Blake[/name]. Me thinks it’s very, very nice… :slight_smile:

I think is a great list! :slight_smile: ([name]Will[/name] your baby boy have two middles, like [name]Blake[/name] [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Bellamy[/name]?)

I am strongly considering it! I would hate for a son (or another daughter, for that matter… I haven’t even though about girls’ names!) to ever feel not as special because he or she didn’t have two as well :slight_smile: And thank you again for all your input! You are the best, [name]Jill[/name] :slight_smile:

Awe, thanks, [name]Kristen[/name]/[name]Megan[/name] [name]Fox[/name]. :slight_smile: This is cool news! Now you can post some more names for combos! Woo-hoo! ([name]Blake[/name] [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Bellamy[/name] is a hard act to follow, but after seeing the names on that list, like [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name], I know [name]Blake[/name]'s siblings will have award-winning names, too.) :slight_smile:

Oh, [name]Jill[/name], way to make me blush and send me into a giggle-fit! Haha :slight_smile: I am very lazily toying with some two middle name combinations as we speak (or type, at least!) though I might wind up sleeping on it. Blakey is starting to wear me out!!

Oh, I am having way too much fun with this! I have been utterly beached all afternoon, and am completely beside myself waiting for my [name]James[/name] to come home from work. I have been toying with these combinations for the past hour or so :slight_smile: I’ve starred my favorite(s) from this set.

[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Enzo[/name] [name]James[/name]*
[name]Constantine[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]*
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Lucien[/name] [name]James[/name]

[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]*
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name]*
[name]Enzo[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]

[name]Augustin[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Augustin[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name]*
[name]Augustin[/name] [name]Emilien[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Augustin[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]*

[name]Lucien[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Lucien[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name]*
[name]Lucien[/name] [name]Enzo[/name] [name]James[/name]

[name]Cullen[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Cullen[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]James[/name]*

I am pondering compiling a similar list for girls :slight_smile: I hate to be so inevitably bothersome, I am just having so much fun!

[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Enzo[/name] [name]James[/name]: This one is in second place for me…
[name]Constantine[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]
I’m voting for this one, because I really like Louvel after [name]Constantine[/name]. I think this is great!
[name]Constantine[/name] [name]Lucien[/name] [name]James[/name]

[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Augustin[/name] [name]James[/name]: I really love this one!
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]*
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name]* I [name]LOVE[/name] this one! [name]LOVE[/name] it! Woo-hoo for this one! :slight_smile:
[name]Enzo[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]

[name]Augustin[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Augustin[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name]* Okay, I think this is seriously cool! I love it! :slight_smile:
[name]Augustin[/name] [name]Emilien[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Augustin[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name]*

[name]Lucien[/name] [name]Constantine[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Lucien[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name]* This one gets my vote for the [name]Lucien[/name] combos. :slight_smile:
[name]Lucien[/name] [name]Enzo[/name] [name]James[/name]

[name]Cullen[/name] [name]Audric[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Cullen[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]James[/name]* I think this is handsome.

Have you thought about [name]Cullen[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name]?

Very handsome lists, [name]Kristen[/name]! And how in the world are you being bothersome? You’re a lot of fun, and your combinations are great! Keep posting away! From these, I’m voting for [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name] and [name]Augustin[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name].

I’m waiting for the girls’ list. :slight_smile:

(Memo to [name]Blake[/name]: Your mommy is tired, so be good.) :slight_smile:

[name]Jill[/name], you are just the sweetest :slight_smile: Your input (and talking with you in general, really!) means an infinite amount to me! Thank you, for what must be the millionth time now. I guess I’m just afraid that someone will eventually get sick of my incessant ramblings, haha :slight_smile: So glad to hear otherwise.

[name]How[/name] did I not think of the [name]Cullen[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name] combo? It is so unbelievably handsome! To the very top it goes!!! [name]James[/name] is loving it, too :slight_smile: Right now his very favorites are [name]Augustin[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name] and [name]Cullen[/name] Devereux [name]James[/name], whereas if I HAD to pick, it would be between [name]Constantine[/name] Louvel [name]James[/name] and [name]Enzo[/name] [name]Laurentin[/name] [name]James[/name]. I truly do love them all, though. Oh, am I glad this is a ways down the road :slight_smile:

And I didn’t want to start an entirely new thread for my girls’ list, so I hope nobody minds my posting it here! I do apologize for the length :slight_smile: So many names I love… I don’t even know where to start on combos!

Am”lie – This was the name of [name]James[/name]’ paternal great-grandmother, whom he knew briefly but loved very much. I find the name so gorgeous, and love that it is so close to [name]Emily[/name], a name I loved as a little girl but would never use now due to its popularity.

[name]Apolline[/name] – My perennial favorite! I was extremely set on using this name for Blakey until a better idea came along :slight_smile:

[name]Astoria[/name] – Another all-time favorite of mine, though the general consensus is not so pretty. [name]James[/name] isn’t huge on it either.

[name]Aurelie[/name] – [name]James[/name] has an aunt [name]Oralie[/name], though for obvious reasons I much prefer this spelling!

[name]Constanta[/name] – A recent discovery of mine. It seems to be the feminine version of my beloved [name]Constantine[/name], so of course I insantly fell in love with it.

Fleuretta – This was the middle name of [name]James[/name]’ aforementioned great-grandmother Am”lie. I do have a soft spot for frilly girls’ names, and it is slowly growing on me. I wouldn’t mind having it somewhere in the middle :slight_smile:

Genevi”ve – One of [name]James[/name]’ favorites, and a fairly prominent name in his family.

[name]Guinevere[/name] – Another one of [name]James[/name]’ loves!

Joscelin – This was actually originally on my boys’ list! It was the name of one of [name]James[/name]’ great-uncles, though apparently it is much more commonly heard on girls :slight_smile: I feel like it matches [name]Blake[/name] well.

[name]Lucinda[/name] nn [name]Lucie[/name] – I actually heard [name]Lucinda[/name] in the movie “Knowing” last week and kind of fell in love with it. [name]Lucie[/name] is a family name, and I thought it would make a precious nickname! [name]James[/name] isn’t a fan, though.

[name]Ocean[/name]” – I love this one. [name]James[/name] had a great aunt by this name, and it has always been a favorite of mine.

[name]Odette[/name] – Another one of [name]James[/name]’ aunts, the older sister of [name]Oralie[/name]. One of my favorites right now.

[name]Po[/name]”sy – This was actually the maiden name of [name]James[/name]’ grandmother :slight_smile: I love it.

[name]Romilly[/name] – A name [name]Jill[/name] suggested that [name]James[/name] has grown very fond of!

Toir”asa – This would definitely be in the middle, but I do love it so. It is the Irish variant of my mom’s name, [name]Teresa[/name].

[name]Viviane[/name]/[name]Vivienne[/name] – [name]Both[/name] of these are on [name]James[/name]’ family tree, and I’m not sure which I prefer more. I love them both, though :slight_smile:

P.S.: Thank you very much for that memo to [name]Blake[/name] :wink: She is quickly becoming one fiesty little baby! I blame [name]James[/name]… haha!!!

I think [name]Cullen[/name] [name]Devereaux[/name] [name]James[/name] is amazing! (And you would have thought of it, I’m sure!)

I have fun talking to you, too, [name]Kristen[/name], and think you’re so sweet. (And you have nothing to apologize for! This place would be boring if people didn’t post, so post away!) :slight_smile:

Am”lie: I love this name, too, but totally understand the [name]Emily[/name] issue. [name]Emily[/name] has ruined [name]Emmeline[/name] for me, so I feel your pain. (That [name]Emily[/name] is evil…) :slight_smile:

[name]Apolline[/name]: I think this is sweet…

[name]Astoria[/name]: Yeah, I do think of Queens in NYC, but on the bright side, [name]Kristen[/name], I think it’s worlds better than poor [name]Sedona[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Aurelie[/name]: I do think this is pretty, but I’m wondering if, um, “[name]Oral[/name]” jokes will come into play in Middle School. Hmm…Have you thought about [name]Aurelia[/name]?

[name]Constanta[/name]: I think this is pretty. I’m so used to [name]Constantina[/name], and have never heard this variation…

Fleuretta: Wow. You two have some gorgeous names in your family! I also love [name]Fleur[/name] and [name]Flora[/name].

Genevi”ve: [name]Genevieve[/name] is one of my all-time favorites! And it’s in [name]James[/name]’ family? No fair!

[name]Guinevere[/name]: I love this name, too, and think [name]Gwennie[/name] and Blakey is cute. :slight_smile:

Joscelin: I really like this name a lot, although I’ve never seen it spelled this way. (I’ve seen [name]Jocelyn[/name] and [name]Joselyn[/name].) I think [name]Joss[/name] and [name]Blake[/name] is great!

[name]Lucinda[/name] nn [name]Lucie[/name]: [name]Lucie[/name] is a family name, too? Geez… You have an amazing family tree. My family names include [name]Fanny[/name], if that gives you an idea of what I have to work with. :slight_smile:

[name]Ocean[/name]”: I love this, too, but wonder if the pronunciation will be butchered.

[name]Odette[/name]: I think this is pretty…

[name]Po[/name]”sy: Another family name? Wow! I think this is darling. I actually think you could call [name]Appoline[/name] “[name]Posy[/name],” because of the “po” sound in there.

[name]Romilly[/name]: I think this is pretty, too, and it’s French!

Toir”asa: I saw the pronunciation on another thread, and I think it’s pretty.

[name]Viviane[/name]/[name]Vivienne[/name]: Ooh! Pretty!

My dream names from this list would be [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Romilly[/name] [name]Fleur[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Romilly[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]. I’d love to see your combos! :slight_smile:

Some more names you may like (or totally hate), that are probably on your family tree
:slight_smile: :


(Memo to [name]Blake[/name]: You’ll be out soon, so it’s okay to relax now.) :slight_smile:

Thank you so much [name]Jill[/name]! Your input is invaluable as always :slight_smile: Does [name]James[/name]” family not have the most gorgeous names ever?! I only wish I could claim them as mine, haha! My family includes such gems as about a dozen [name]Sara/name”s, an [name]Egbert[/name] and a male [name]Carol[/name] :wink:

I am so loving your suggestion of calling an [name]Apolline[/name] ”[name]Posy[/name]”! That never even crossed my mind before. And is there really a [name]Constantina[/name]? I had no idea! Oh, now I love that, too, though [name]Constanta[/name] is probably a bit more viable. [name]Aurelie[/name] worries me, too, for that same reason, though I find [name]Aurelia[/name] equally gorgeous. I love all of your suggestions! Especially [name]Esme[/name], which is in fact on [name]James[/name]” side of the family in the form of [name]Esme[/name]”. [name]Love[/name] [name]Delphine[/name], too, and [name]James[/name] thinks [name]Tamsin[/name] is precious!

I think girls” combos will be my pet project for tomorrow :slight_smile: I do love both of your suggestions! Blakey in fact gave me a swift kick at [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Romilly[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]. I think she likes it!

[name]Edit[/name]: Before I forget! I have been off-and-on wondering about maybe using [name]James[/name]’ sister’s name, or some form of it, somewhere in the middle. Her name is [name]Amber[/name], which I am fairly indifferent towards. Pondering any sort of variation of it…

Today is [name]James[/name] and I’s anniversary :slight_smile: And he actually came up with the idea of us two (or three, rather) spending a lazy morning in bed toying with all these future names. He’s starting to have a lot of fun with it, too! We narrowed down the list of girls’ first names significantly – it’s SO much easier when he is here to shoot them down, haha! He’s managed to talk me out of [name]Astoria[/name] as anything but a middle name, and has convinced me to save all names remotely close to my beloved [name]Constantine[/name] for the boys. Darn those husbands :wink:

Our combos are still pretty all over the place. It was so much easier for the boys’, where the second middle name was guaranteed to be [name]James[/name]! So for the moment, most of these have just one middle name.

I am struggling with finding anything for [name]Genevieve[/name] (outside of [name]Jill[/name]'s beautiful suggestion) and [name]Guinevere[/name]; the alliteration with our last name is proving hindersome. [name]James[/name] has taken a strong liking to [name]Esme[/name] and had a lot of fun concocting middle names for her! I myself am loving Joscelin for how well it sounds with [name]Blake[/name], as well as [name]Apolline[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name].

[name]Happy[/name] Anniversary to [name]Blake[/name] [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Bellamy[/name]'s mommy and daddy! Woo-hoo! [name]Happy[/name] Anniversary to [name]Kristen[/name] and [name]James[/name] (AKA: [name]Megan[/name] [name]Fox[/name] and [name]Brian[/name] [name]Austin[/name] [name]Green[/name]). :slight_smile: Congratulations! :slight_smile:

[name]James[/name]’ sister is [name]Amber[/name]? Hmm…For a boy, what about [name]Ambrose[/name] in the middle? Have you read my blog about my name? It’s called Name [name]Shame[/name] ([name]Pam[/name] came up with that great title), and [name]Amberly[/name] reminds me of my middle name. (I’d love for you to read it if you haven’t already!) :slight_smile:

For a girl, I think [name]Ambrosia[/name] could work in the middle, but I believe both names have that creepy “immortal” meaning. I think the Am in [name]Amelie[/name] could honor an [name]Amber[/name], and [name]Amity[/name] also comes to mind. It means friendship, but I have to admit that I think of the Amityville Horror movie. :slight_smile:

Wait. With your anniversay in [name]August[/name], that gives [name]August[/name]/[name]Augustin[/name] such personal meaning! For a girl, you could always incorporate [name]August[/name], [name]Augustine[/name], or [name]Augusta[/name]. The birth stone is [name]Peridot[/name], but that may be too out there. I think the flower of [name]August[/name] is [name]Poppy[/name], and you could use that as a nickname for [name]Apolline[/name] (it’s got the po), or for [name]Penelope[/name]. I think it could also be cute in the middle on its own. :slight_smile:

[name]Amelie[/name] Fleuretta [name]Esme[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] Joscelin
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]: I really love this! For me, this has the best flow of the group…(I think [name]Fleur[/name], [name]Blythe[/name], or [name]Camille[/name] is pretty on the end, too.) :slight_smile:

[name]Apolline[/name] [name]Esme[/name]: Can I stick “[name]Fleur[/name]” on the end? [name]Appoline[/name] [name]Esme[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]. I love this! :slight_smile: What about [name]Appoline[/name] [name]Esme[/name] [name]August[/name]?
[name]Apolline[/name] [name]Lucinda[/name]: I’m loving [name]Appoline[/name] [name]Esme[/name] more…
[name]Apolline[/name] [name]Odette[/name]: Pretty…
[name]Apolline[/name] Toir”asa [name]Fleur[/name]: For some reason, my brain keeps sticking [name]Toireasa[/name] (I have no clue how to type accents) with [name]Amelie[/name]! [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Toireasa[/name]… I think this [name]Apolline[/name] combo is pretty…

[name]Apolline[/name] [name]Ambrosia[/name] (that would be pretty over-the-top, though…)

You know, I think [name]August[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]August[/name] [name]Apolline[/name] are pretty, too. :slight_smile:

Joscelin [name]Odette[/name]
Joscelin [name]Rosabelle[/name]: Oooh…I love this one, too!

[name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Amelie[/name]: I love both names, but when I say it aloud, [name]Vivienne[/name] and [name]Amelie[/name] are running together in a way that’s sounding like [name]Vivi[/name] Anomaly, like the word “anomaly.”
[name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Apolline[/name]
[name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Esme[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] this!

Hahaha! [name]Jill[/name], you are the absolute greatest!!! Not only did you have [name]James[/name] rolling for a good five minutes solid, but I”ve now bestowed a new nickname upon him” [name]Brian[/name] [name]Austin[/name] [name]Green[/name] fits him quite nicely, I think :wink: But really, thank you so much for the anniversary well-wishes :slight_smile: The impending arrival of Blakey made this one our greatest one yet.

I did read your blog! It was such a wonderful read!!! For the record, I find your name quite beautiful; [name]Amberly[/name] on the other hand does give me a trashy vibe. I was thinking about [name]Amelie[/name] myself, but I actually really like [name]Amity[/name]! Once I get past the Amityville Horror reference, I quite like the meaning” it compliments [name]Bellamy[/name] very nicely.

You know what? The meaning behind [name]August[/name] never crossed my mind! It really is a very, very special month for us: our anniversary is today of course, [name]James[/name]” birthday is on the 16th, and we met during my first week of college” which was, of course, in [name]August[/name]! We are going to have to get it in there somehow :slight_smile: I love all of your suggestions!

You, as always, have given us some stunning suggestions. I love all of these! Thank you so much for pointing out the ”anomaly” problem with Joscelin and [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Amelie[/name]. It never even occurred to me! So, without further adieu” our beautifully updated girls” list :slight_smile:

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]August[/name] – [name]James[/name] tacked [name]August[/name] onto the end of this one. I like it!

He he he! I’m glad that [name]Brian[/name] [name]Austin[/name] [name]Green[/name] ([name]James[/name]’ new name for me) got in a few laughs. I find his new moniker quite fitting. (I may call him B.A.G. every now and then, or B to the [name]AG[/name].) :slight_smile: (And there’s no need to thank me for anything! This is fun!) :slight_smile:

Oh, I’m glad you liked the blog. (Huh? You like my name? I’ll need a minute to recover, but thank you.) :slight_smile: Yeah, I think [name]Amberly[/name] is all sorts of wrong, but I’m glad you like [name]Amity[/name] and its tie to [name]Bellamy[/name].

I really loved these lists!

Haha! B to the [name]AG[/name], I love it. His new moniker is quite befitting, I think :wink: I”ve been calling him [name]Brian[/name] off-and-on all day today; he is getting a huge kick out of it! You”ve provided our family some immense amusement, [name]Jill[/name] :wink: As long as he doesn”t want me to get a tattoo of his name similar to the one the ”other” [name]Megan[/name] [name]Fox[/name] has” ha!

Your feedback is invaluable as always :slight_smile: You know, I didn”t really hear the ”[name]Odette[/name]” and ”Oh, debt?” thing at first, but now that you mention it, I do hear some whisper of it. That”s just fine with me, anything I can use to narrow these gargantuan lists down! I am trying to get it down so that each name only has one or two possible variations, for the sake of my sanity :wink: Here is where we stand so far!

[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Esme[/name] [name]August[/name] – [name]James[/name]/[name]Brian[/name] just sprung this one on me. I am loving it!
