A Sibling for Desmond & Talullah

After a miscarriage this spring, we are pregnant again. We won’t know the gender for a while yet, but we are already feeling a bit stuck with names.

We used many of our favorites with our son and daughter already. We have an Irish last name, and I’m an Irish dual citizen; so, we’ve tried to stick with Irish names (although we’re not opposed to other names that fit in well).

To make matters even more complicated, our son was adopted from South Korea; so, each child also has a Korean name for a second middle name using the Korean sibling naming style where the siblings share a Hangul character in their names.

Soooooo, our son is [name_m]Desmond[/name_m] [name_m]Colm[/name_m] TaekYeon; and our daughter is [name_f]Talullah[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] MiYeon.

They go by [name_u]Desi[/name_u] and [name_f]Lulu[/name_f]/Lullah most of the time.

Our faves so far are [name_m]Riordan[/name_m] and [name_m]Cormac[/name_m] for a boy and [name_f]Saoirse[/name_f] for a girl.

That’s it. :frowning::frowning::frowning:crickets

I know you all are full of good ideas, so I am looking forward to any suggestions you all might have. ”

[name_f]TIA[/name_f]!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

I don’t think I could love your kids’ names more. :grin: I never see [name_m]Colm[/name_m]! That’s my favorite name ever, which I will never actually use, because Dh hates it & it will never get pronounced right in the midwest U.S. Anyway, I digress.

[name_m]Riordan[/name_m], [name_m]Cormac[/name_m] & [name_f]Saoirse[/name_f] all seem like lovely fits. I feel like [name_m]Riordan[/name_m] is sort of hard to say, but maybe that’s just me. None of these names really have too many nn options if that bothers you at all since your current kids go by nick-names.

Here are a few suggestions:
