A sibling for Claire and Jane

For a girl, I want to find another name that is equally classic and pretty yet understated, and not too popular. For a boy, I want something with the same vibe, but I don’t love any of the classics like [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], etc, but also don’t want something too trendy. Is there a boy equivalent of the “[name_f]Claire[/name_f]” vibe?? Sophisticated and classic yet not too stuffy? Lol.

Should we stick with another one syllable name?

Names we like…

Girl names:
[name_f]Elle[/name_f]
[name_f]Ruth[/name_f]
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
[name_f]Rose[/name_f]

[name_m]Isaac[/name_m]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]

[name_m]Liam[/name_m]

Any thoughts or suggestions that we haven’t thought of? Thanks!!!

I really like [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] for you!

For girls, I like the idea of sticking with a one-syllable name, so [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f] leaped out at me from your list. [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] is, of course, also a one-syllable name, but I feel like she is a bit too stuffy compared to the classic strength of [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Jane[/name_f].

Other one-syllable names that feel similarly to me:
[name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Blythe[/name_f]
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Nell[/name_f]
[name_f]Eve[/name_f]
[name_f]Bette[/name_f]
[name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_f]Belle[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwen[/name_f]
[name_u]Anne[/name_u]
[name_u]Leigh[/name_u]
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]

Suggestions of more than one syllable:
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Nora[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f]
[name_f]Ava[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Elodie[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f]

For the boys’ names, I think you could keep the one-syllable theme if you wanted, but it sounds just as fine either way. I like [name_u]Owen[/name_u], [name_u]Finn[/name_u], and [name_u]Liam[/name_u] best for your existing sibset. I can see what you mean about wanting a timeless classic, but not liking the traditional names in that category - your boys’ choices are definitely more “modern classic,” if that makes sense.

Short and sweet classics for boys:
[name_m]Clark[/name_m]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_u]George[/name_u]

I love [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Jane[/name_f]! I think you should stick to one syllable if possible—but I am particularly into sibling names following the “rules” of what the family has established without being too matchy matchy. I love [name_f]Grace[/name_f] for a girl because it’s the same level of classic As [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Jane[/name_f] and doesn’t sound too much like either of them. On your list I also love [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f]! For a boy I love [name_m]Luke[/name_m] or [name_m]Jack[/name_m]!

We have similar taste in names so here are my kids names:
Graham Edward
Claire Addison
Blake Evelyn
and possibly Jane or Grace Vivian for my current pregnancy.

If we’d had another boy he would have been Ford William. I also love Kate, Lillian, Reese, and Miles.

Wow thank you for all of these great responses!!!

I like [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] from your list. I think I prefer a name with more syllables, but either way works.
