A little sister for Wren?

Hello there! I’m [name]Kate[/name] and I’m new to nameberry :slight_smile:

We’re expecting our second daughter in [name]March[/name] and have decided not t reveal the name to our family (after much negative input on [name]Wren[/name]'s name) until after she is born. So we decided to come here, where your knowledge and opinions could probably help us out the most! I’ve heard good things about this site!

Our first daughter is [name]Wren[/name] [name]Claribelle[/name], and we’re thinking about 1-2 syllable names for our second girl.

If you ladies could leave opinions about our list and suggest some names, that would be awesome!

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name]: Although [name]Rose[/name] as a middle name is raging, I’ve never met a little girl named [name]Rose[/name]! I think it’s simple and sweet, but are [name]Wren[/name] & [name]Rose[/name] too ‘R’ heavy?

[name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]: I’ve been thinking about [name]Ada[/name] for a while, and I love it’s simple charm. With [name]Clementine[/name] it sounds like the name of a Southern belle! Although my husband isn’t keen on [name]Clementine[/name] at all.

[name]Luna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]: I think [name]Luna[/name] is modern enough to be paired with [name]Wren[/name], and I love [name]Beatrice[/name] with it! DH says it just reminds him of [name]Luna[/name] Lovegood.

[name]Jade[/name] [name]Florence[/name]: DH’s favorite. I really don’t like [name]Jade[/name], it makes me think of [name]Giada[/name] DiLaurentis and her daughter. But I love Flornece in the middle!

[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]: I love [name]Maeve[/name]! I’m not sure about [name]Adeline[/name] with it (DH picked it out). But I love the way [name]Wren[/name] & [name]Maeve[/name] sound together.

DH also really likes [name]Sloane[/name]…I’m not convinced.

Thanks in advanced!

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name]: I love [name]Rose[/name]! [name]Millicent[/name] has been growing on me, and I think [name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name] is nice. [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Wren[/name] IS a bit R heavy, though.
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]: [name]Ada[/name] sounds like too much of a nickname to me, and [name]Clementine[/name] is not a favorite of mine.
[name]Luna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]: [name]Luna[/name] and [name]Wren[/name] are lovely together! [name]Luna[/name] is one of the names that I forgot to add to my updated signature, and this reminded me! [name]Beatrice[/name] with her is very nice, too.
[name]Jade[/name] [name]Florence[/name]: [name]Florence[/name] is a lovely middle, but [name]Jade[/name] is just OK.
[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]: [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Wren[/name] are gorgeous together! [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name] has a nice ring to it, I think.
DH also really likes [name]Sloane[/name]…I’m not convinced. [name]Sloane[/name] is definately NOT a name I like as a first name, but I think it would be a nice middle.
My favorites are [name]Luna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name].

[name]Wren[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] look and sound good together. I wish I could choose [name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name] because it’s a gorgeous but I think [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] are too heavy on the r’s.

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name]- I agree with previous posters. This is lovely, but probably too matchy for a sister to [name]Wren[/name].
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]- I absolutely love this. It’s so simple and charming. If husband if not keen on [name]Clementine[/name], keep [name]Ada[/name] and go with another one of the lovely middles on your list.
[name]Luna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]- [name]Luna[/name] is not really my style, but it does match very well with [name]Wren[/name]. I reminds me of [name]Luna[/name] Lovegood, too!
[name]Jade[/name] [name]Florence[/name]- [name]Love[/name] [name]Florence[/name], hate [name]Jade[/name].
[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]- My favorite for you! [name]Maeve[/name] is stunning, especially with [name]Wren[/name]. [name]Adeline[/name] is very sweet, and you could nickname her [name]Ada[/name] sometimes! (If you really don’t like [name]Adeline[/name], what about [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] or [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Florence[/name]?)

Good luck with the naming and the new baby!

[name]Love[/name] [name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name].

I like [name]Luna[/name] and [name]Jade[/name] best with [name]Wren[/name]. I like the idea of using another nature name.

Thanks ladies!!!
Jade really isn’t one of my favorite either, but I’m keeping it on the list for DH.

Please keep helping :)!

[name]Ada[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] are my favorites to go with [name]Wren[/name]!

I agree with many of the folks above that [name]Ada[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] go best with [name]Wren[/name] (I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Rose[/name], but agree on [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] being too R heavy). I think [name]Ada[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] would sound very nice if your husband doesn’t like [name]Clementine[/name]. Since he seems to like [name]Adeline[/name], you could always use that as the first name with a nn [name]Ada[/name].

With [name]Wren[/name], I like [name]Ada[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name]. Here are my suggestions:


Thank you :)!
It’s so sad, because [name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name] is my favorite. But I can already see the confusion when I’m calling [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] comes instead.
DH really likes [name]Ada[/name] [name]Florence[/name] and [name]Ada[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] :).

[name]Love[/name] the name [name]Wren[/name] [name]Claribelle[/name]! And I do agree, every time I hear [name]Jade[/name], I got straight to [name]Giada[/name] De Laurentiis. [name]How[/name] about [name]Margot[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]? I think that name goes well with [name]Wren[/name], I think its a beautiful name as well.

I love [name]Maeve[/name] too. It looks nice with [name]Adeline[/name] as a middle name.

[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]. And you can pull off calling your little girl, [name]Ada[/name] too.

We really love the suggestion of [name]Pearl[/name] :)!

Awww, I adore your daughter’s name! [name]Wren[/name] is one of my very favorites–I think it’s so stunning, and it kind of makes me sad to think you had a negative reaction to it. :frowning: Are you happy with your choice? I would love to use it one day (it has tons of significance to me personally)–probably only as a MN–but I’m just curious to see others’ response to it and how you feel about her name now. :slight_smile:

From your list:

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Millicent[/name] - unfortunately, I agree with the others that [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] are a bit too close. [name]Rose[/name] is very lovely, though!
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] - I adore [name]Ada[/name] and I think [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Ada[/name] are perfect together! [name]Ada[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] is just so sweet.

[name]Luna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] - I do like [name]Luna[/name], and [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Luna[/name] are nice. Something about it seems off to me, though. I like [name]Ada[/name] (or even [name]Adele[/name]) more.

[name]Jade[/name] [name]Florence[/name] - I have to agree with everyone else here. [name]Jade[/name] is not my thing at all and it has a very trendy and even stripperish feel to me. :frowning: I do like [name]Jada[/name]/[name]Giada[/name] more, but if you don’t like the association to [name]Giada[/name] DiLaurentis, then that’s probably not the option for you.

[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Adeline[/name] - I know [name]Maeve[/name] is a huge [name]Berry[/name] favorite but I don’t really like it, sorry. It feels harsh to me and I like the simpler, classic [name]Mae[/name] so much more. I do think [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] is nice, though.

Are you looking for suggestions? I think something along the lines of [name]Olive[/name] (or just [name]Liv[/name], which is a full name in its own right), [name]Eve[/name], [name]Tess[/name], [name]Blythe[/name], [name]Belle[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Niamh[/name], [name]Nadia[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]June[/name]/[name]Juno[/name]/[name]Juniper[/name]/[name]Junia[/name], [name]Kaia[/name], [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Winter[/name], [name]Gray[/name], [name]Isla[/name], [name]Esme[/name], [name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name], [name]Lilia[/name], [name]Daphne[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name], or [name]Thisbe[/name] would be so pretty with [name]Wren[/name]…

Good luck!

Thank you so much! My DH and I couldn’t have found a name that we love more than [name]Wren[/name]. We loved everything about it (and still do!). We found [name]Claribelle[/name] and both fell in love with how pretty and soft it sounds. We had found out perfect name and were so happy!
We were so excited to tell everyone about our perfect name, and when we didn’t we got a lot of negative comments. My mom didn’t like how it wasn’t a ‘timeless’ name like [name]Katherine[/name] (my name) or [name]Elizabeth[/name] (my big sister). And she hated [name]Claribelle[/name]!
My sister really hated it, too. She has a five year old daughter named [name]Mackenzie[/name] [name]Ashlynn[/name] and a three year old boy named [name]Grayson[/name] [name]Tyler[/name], and obviously our tastes in names are not the same.
Our friends thought it wasn’t feminine enough for a girl. It went on and on.
We were really sad and surprised by the reaction that we got, and started looking for new names. But [name]Wren[/name] [name]Claribelle[/name] was always the perfect name for us, and we decided to stick with it no matter what the people around us said. We still love it so much, and our family has warmed up a lot to it! We’re happy :).

Thank you for all your wonderful suggestions! I really like [name]Eve[/name] and [name]Juno[/name] intrigues me :).

I love [name]Wren[/name] with both [name]Luna[/name] & [name]Maeve[/name].

Thank you :)!
[name]Maeve[/name] is getting so much love.

I love [name]Ada[/name], but it was always too close to the popular [name]Ava[/name] for me. I do like [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Ada[/name] though.
[name]Luna[/name] is a little looney, and for some reason [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] makes me stutter and say Men and Rave.
Not a fan of [name]Sloane[/name] :slight_smile: I agree that [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] might be too much ‘R’ sound, if that bothers you, but I do like them together also.
My favorite of your choices is definitely [name]Ada[/name], and [name]Hazel[/name] would be cute too or [name]Nova[/name], [name]Bree[/name], [name]Poppy[/name]
