A Sibling for Ansel and Ames

HELP!

We were surprised to learn we are expecting baby #3. We do not know baby’s sex, but we have 2 boys already. Our entire family has A names, which happened sort of by accident because I guess I am drawn to the A sounds. Our girl names have never started with an A, but now we are questioning if we keep the pattern or break it. Completely unintentionally, both boys have the same number of letters in their first and middle names also. We aren’t sure we are done with this baby, but we are getting on the old end of having babies. What would you name a sibling for [name_m]Ansel[/name_m] [name_u]Valor[/name_u] and [name_m]Ames[/name_m] [name_m]Adam[/name_m]? (Parents are [name_m]Adam[/name_m] and Adrienne)

Usually I say when it comes to patterns or themes, 2 names is a coincidence 3 is a pattern. However wth both of you having an ‘A’ name plus your boys, it is definitely more of a pattern but ultimately in the end its more important that you love the name than match a pattern.

So many beautiful options - and I would definitely stick to the pattern: an A first name, same letter count for middle as first (and a virtue/biblical name for middle).

[name_u]Valor[/name_u] is actually for my grandmother [name_f]Valeria[/name_f], and [name_m]Adam[/name_m] is for dad. Another accidental pattern that they have a biblical link.

I think if it was just your two boys with A names, I would say break the pattern for a name you love. However, since both of you parents also have A names, I think finding another A name would be preferred :slight_smile: Especially if this child is the last.
