A sister for Milo!

Hello, this is my first post! I have a 2 year old son, [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name]. And am due with a baby girl in about 6 weeks! I’d love some help thinking about names. I have a few favorites, but hoping that maybe some of you can advise other names that have a similar feel but which I have not yet thought of? Or maybe just help choosing the right one or the right combo of first and middle? I’d like something that sounds nice with brother’s name, [name]Milo[/name], and also good with our last name, [name]Rogers[/name]. Thanks so much!

Some current first name likes:


Potential middle names:

(or possibly one of the first names listed could be used as a middle)

Oooh, you have lots of good names!

With [name]Milo[/name] I like [name]Alice[/name], [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Fern[/name], [name]Daphne[/name], and [name]Sadie[/name] the best.

[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Jane[/name], [name]Daphne[/name] [name]Sage[/name], [name]Fern[/name] [name]Adelie[/name], [name]Sadie[/name] [name]Colette[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]?

for [name]Milo[/name]'s sister I like the following names, in particular I like [name]Fern[/name], it is a great favourite of mine. I don’t think any of the mn options you gave would do justice to the [name]Fern[/name] combo. I like [name]Fern[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] a lot!

[name]Alice[/name] I think she is becoming more and more popular and she radiates a calm old fashioned feeling to me
[name]Vivian[/name] [name]Viv[/name] is an energetic, sporty girl
[name]Fern[/name] She is feminine, smart, artistic and willowy
[name]Lucia[/name] She is all girl very cute and her nn of [name]Lucy[/name] is appealing


Lots of lovely names in there (and I love [name]Milo[/name] too).

My top pick is [name]Adelie[/name] and I think [name]Adelie[/name] [name]Ivy[/name] has a similar flow to her brother’s names, so makes a nice connection.

ps. [name]Welcome[/name]!

I’m completely in love with [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name]! Amazing. I know it’s not on your list, but I really like the idea of [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Cecilia[/name]. [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Ivy[/name] would be really sweet. As for your list, I think [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Ivy[/name] or [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Alice[/name] would be lovely. [name]Ivy[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] are my picks. Thinking about it and I’m thinking [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] and [name]Vivian[/name] [name]Sage[/name] would be lovely as well. Oh, what about [name]Juliet[/name]? [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Sage[/name] would be GORGEOUS.

I love [name]Milo[/name]. It is such a sweet name. From your list I like
[name]Milo[/name] and [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Milo[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name]
[name]Milo[/name] and [name]Daphne[/name]

I like [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Fern[/name].

I like:
[name]Alice[/name]- Pretty, simple, classic, but maybe not as much of a spark as [name]Milo[/name]. Very soft and feminine.
[name]Vivian[/name]- Very pretty simple and classic, but it also has a strength that I really like.
[name]Fern[/name]- Cute. This name is spunky and fun like [name]Milo[/name]. Makes me think of the name [name]Nell[/name] for some reason?
[name]Colette[/name]- Makes me think of the writer and [name]Claudine[/name].
[name]Marigold[/name]- [name]Love[/name] the nickname [name]Goldie[/name]. Considered this name, but it was too long with my too long last name! I dislike [name]Magnolia[/name] & [name]Clementine[/name] myself, but I think some people who like [name]Marigold[/name] would like those names?
[name]Daphne[/name]- Very cute and spunky in the same category to me as [name]Fern[/name] and goes well with [name]Milo[/name]
[name]Sadie[/name]- This is a name that I like, but I have known a lot of pets with this name so it’s kind of ruined for me.
[name]Josephine[/name]- I like [name]Jo[/name]- names, but this one is not for me.
[name]Jane[/name]- I love this name as a middle or a first. To me it’s a perfect name.
[name]Pearl[/name]- Cute as a middle or a first!

Maybe you would like

We have very similar taste in names! I love [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Daphne[/name], [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name]. [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name] both share the long “o” and [name]Fiona[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is my favorite of your choices.

[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Sadie[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

Suggestions: [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Clover[/name], [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Marin[/name], [name]Wren[/name], [name]Stella[/name]

Good luck!

I like [name]Daphne[/name] best from your list! [name]Daphne[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] would be really nice!

What about -

[name]Iris[/name], [name]Romilly[/name], [name]Ariel[/name] or [name]Clara[/name]?

Oh my gosh, I [name]ADORE[/name] [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name]! [name]Milo[/name] is one of my favorite names, and it has such great ties to literature (The Phantom Tollbooth). Plus, my big brother thought that’s what our babysitter called him when she was really saying “my love” :3 And [name]Arthur[/name] is my dad’s name, so I like that too.

As for girls, I was thinking that maybe something that could link your children’s names could be their tie-in with childrens’ literary hero/ines. [name]Milo[/name], as I said, is the main character in [name]Norton[/name] Juster’s Phantom Tollbooth, and [name]Josephine[/name] is the featured sister in [name]Little[/name] Women. She’s strong, smart, and independent - all very good qualities! [name]Alice[/name] (as in Wonderland) and [name]Fern[/name] ([name]Charlotte[/name]'s [name]Web[/name]) also fit this bill.

I also adore the name [name]Sadie[/name]. I think it has the same softness/spunk of [name]Milo[/name], without them sounding instantly alike. [name]Sadie[/name] also means princess, and what little girl wouldn’t like that? :wink:

I also can’t really explain why, but I love [name]Vivian[/name]. It’s so…[name]Viv[/name]-y. It makes me think of pincurls and [name]Rosie[/name] the Riveter.

I like [name]Jane[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Mabel[/name], and [name]Quinn[/name] as middles more than anything, but they are all quite lovely. If you don’t like nicknames (or don’t want other people to choose them for her), [name]Josephine[/name] might better be left to the middle category as well.

Some other options:
[name]Frances[/name]/[name]Francesca[/name] (nn [name]Frankie[/name]?)
[name]Sophie[/name] (not to toot my own horn, or anything, but a strong girl!)

Thank you all SO much for your sincere and thoughtful feedback! It’s nice to hear that [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] was a good choice and I really enjoy reading how all of you name experts combine the firsts and middles…it’s like magic! My husband is not interested in thinking on names at all, so it feels good to have others who are as interested in naming as me! This thread of responses will most definitely be used when the little lady arrives and we need to make a decision.

For what it’s worth, I adore [name]Mabel[/name]. [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Sage[/name] and [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Jane[/name] are gorgeous to me.

And also, [name]Milo[/name] is definitely a fave! The two together might be a bit sing-song-y, but I kind of like that :slight_smile:

I, too, have a [name]Milo[/name] (my boy is [name]Milo[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]) and I love many of the names on your list. My favorites are [name]Mabel[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Vivian[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name]. I love the nn [name]Viva[/name] for [name]Vivian[/name].

Since we seem to have similar name styles, others that I really like are [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Thea[/name], [name]Clara[/name], [name]Adeline[/name], [name]Hazel[/name] and [name]Georgia[/name]. But all the names are your list are great and all would go well with [name]Milo[/name] I think.

My son [name]Milo[/name] has a sweet friend named [name]Sadie[/name]. I love saying [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name]. It just works.

[name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] is so lovely! You have lots of nice girls choices too. With [name]Milo[/name], my favourite is probably [name]Vivian[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]. But [name]Milo[/name] and [name]Marigold[/name] is just [name]WAY[/name] too sweet! [name]Marigold[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is gorgeous.

Also, if you’re open to suggestions my immediate thought was ‘[name]Milo[/name] and [name]Betty[/name]’ for some reason. I just think they sound nice together, but you may not be a fan.

[name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] is adorable! I like your list too. Especially [name]Alice[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Marigold[/name], and [name]Neve[/name].
Some names I think you might like: [name]Estelle[/name]/[name]Estella[/name]/[name]Stella[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name]/[name]Rosemary[/name]/[name]Rosalind[/name], [name]Adele[/name]/[name]Adella[/name]/[name]Della[/name], [name]Vera[/name]/[name]Verena[/name]/[name]Verity[/name]

Wow, it’s so interesting that you came up with [name]Betty[/name]! [name]Betty[/name] is definitely on the list of possibilities. It was my grandmother’s name who recently passed. She was a huge role model and loving person in my life. [name]Betty[/name] wasn’t short for anything. [name]Just[/name] [name]Betty[/name]. Anyway, we were sort of struggling with the notion of using it for our girl since it has a bit of a down-home, flighty vibe to me. [name]Even[/name] though I loved my grandma dearly. Anyway, it’s good to hear that someone else thinks it’s a viable name!

Also, we have been considering names that start with B, H or M. I like how these starting letters sound, but have trouble coming up with names I really like that start with these. Is that strange…maybe? [name]One[/name] name I really like is [name]Hazel[/name], even though it might be a little too trendy. But my hubs says he can’t consider using [name]Hazel[/name] because a distant step cousin, who happens to live in our town has a little girl named [name]Hazel[/name]…ugh… I don’t know why this matters to him. Anyway, I’d be interested to hear if anyone has a name like [name]Hazel[/name] or with one of the other starting letters that you think might work well for our little lady. She will be here in about 5 weeks! Wow! Thanks you :slight_smile:

I think it would be so sweet to give your two little ones the same initials…

I like [name]Marigold[/name] [name]Alice[/name] [name]Rogers[/name] to go with your little [name]Milo[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Rogers[/name]
