A sibling for Nora?

I have a two year-old daughter named [name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name]. I don’t plan on getting pregnant for another year or so, but I’m starting to get the “itch” so I’m thinking about names. I have a ton of names I like, but none seem to “fit.” Here’s some on my list: [name]Elise[/name], [name]Margaux[/name], [name]Sylvie[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Mary[/name], [name]Ruby[/name], [name]Gwyneth[/name], [name]Eve[/name]…[name]Declan[/name], [name]Owen[/name], [name]Miles[/name]/[name]Milo[/name], [name]Lyle[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Gavin[/name], [name]Henry[/name]…

I want something more classy and traditional, but a little quirky/not popular. I personally am really loving [name]Sylvie[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Miles[/name]/[name]Milo[/name] and [name]Lyle[/name], but my husband doesn’t like ANY of them. I’ve loved [name]Elise[/name], [name]Declan[/name] and [name]Owen[/name] for a long time, but for various reasons, I have reservations (not sure why with [name]Elise[/name], but we would use [name]Dex[/name] as a nickname for [name]Declan[/name] and a friend of mine just had a son named Maddax and are calling him [name]Dax[/name] - yuck. As for [name]Owen[/name], I just think it’s pretty popular which I want to make sure I avoid.)

So, if there’s any suggestions or maybe even comments you can make on my list of names to give me a new outlook on them, I’d really appreciate it!

I suggest [name]Frances[/name]! I have [name]Nora[/name] & [name]Frances[/name] on my list as possible future siblings. :slight_smile: It’s classic, but not popular, pretty but spunky.

[name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name] & [name]Frances[/name] [name]Emilia[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name] & [name]Frances[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name] & [name]Frances[/name] [name]Gwendolyn[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name] & [name]Frances[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]

Other suggestions:


What about [name]Duncan[/name] or [name]Ian[/name]? I think both of those fit your criteria and would sound great with [name]Nora[/name].

I personally think [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Lyle[/name] are gorgeous together!





I personally really like [name]Declan[/name] and [name]Owen[/name] (even though it’s a little on the popular side)
Good luck!

[name]Owen[/name] is a fav of mine. I don’t know any boys of that name, so I don’t know how popular it’s becoming. Definitely usable! [name]Nolan[/name] is another great choice.

For a girl, [name]Lilah[/name] is a nice suggestion, especially since you were considering [name]Lyle[/name]. [name]Keira[/name] is also lovely [name]IMO[/name].

I know a [name]Nora[/name] and [name]John[/name] and I think that is a nice combo.



I like [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Miles[/name] on your list. And [name]Ruby[/name] too!

[name]Nora[/name] & [name]Daphne[/name] came to mind first. I like [name]Sylvie[/name] and PPs suggestion of [name]Maisie[/name]

[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Fenella[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Phoebe[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Helena[/name]

[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Samson[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Hamish[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Ambrose[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Hugo[/name]

I just want to point something out.
[name]Nora[/name] is my all-time, hands down, drop-dead-gorgeous favorite name.
[name]Miles[/name]/[name]Milo[/name] is my guilty pleasure.
Either you and I are secretly name soul sisters, or it’s just meant to be that way.

[name]Nora[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name] is so pretty!
