A sister or brother for Stella June

We’re expecting in [name]January[/name]. I tend to like old fashioned, spunky names for girls, Irish names for boys. Recently I was really into [name]Lucy[/name], but it is appearing on everyone’s favorite lists. Now I’m thinking:

[name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name] for a girl (spelled like County [name]Clare[/name], where my Irish side is from)

[name]Finnegan[/name] (possible mn [name]John[/name] after my dad) (nn [name]Finn[/name])

Our last name starts with an M and has two syllables. What do you think? Or do you have any suggestions?

I think [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name] is darling! :slight_smile:

I’m not personally an [name]Oona[/name] fan (it reminds me of the Oompa Loompas from [name]Charlie[/name] and the Chocolate Factory), but I think [name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name] sounds nice together. Wait. When I say [name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name] out loud, it sounds like Oon Eclair, like the dessert. :frowning:

I think [name]Finnegan[/name] is great, but it’s getting very popular, which is understandably an issue for you.

[name]Mabel[/name] (not sure how the M names will sound with your last name…)

[name]Finnian[/name] (getting popular)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I love your little girl’s name [name]Stella[/name]. It is so cute. I am not a fan though of Oons. I have never heard it before. I kinda like [name]Finnigan[/name] because of the nn finn.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name]!
I think [name]Finnegan[/name] [name]John[/name] is very cute, too!
[name]Don[/name]'t like [name]Oona[/name] though.
With [name]Stella[/name] I love:
[name]Ava[/name], but it’s too popular
[name]Harriet[/name] nn [name]Hattie[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name] nn [name]Josie[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name] nn [name]Lulu[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] nn [name]Tillie[/name]

I like many of the suggestions and have had many of them on my list at one time or another, but none seem quite right.

More please!

[name]How[/name] about this: let’s pretend you like the name [name]Oona[/name]. [name]How[/name] about a middle name? Would using [name]June[/name] again be weird? Or nice that they are sharing? Or…
[name]Oona[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] (after my grandmother)
[name]Oona[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] (the Irish form of [name]Helen[/name], my dear aunt)
I’m not sold on [name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name] but I do like the idea of a 2 syllable FN/1 syl. MN/ 2syl. Last name to go with my daughter’s, but not hung up on it.

I love [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name]! I first thought of [name]Pearl[/name] as a possible sister.
Two Syllable first name/ One Syllable middle name combos:
[name]Ana[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Bronte[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Dinah[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Lila[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Jane[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Ruby[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Sofie[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]

I think that [name]Finnegan[/name] is adorable. [name]Stella[/name] and [name]Finn[/name] sounds sooo cute :slight_smile:

What about [name]Willa[/name] [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Odette[/name] [name]Claire[/name] for a girl? And for a boy [name]Leon[/name] or [name]Sebastian[/name]?

SOme nice irish baby names in Gaelic the spelling could be changed are

[name]Aoife[/name] pronounced eefa
[name]Mairead[/name] pronounced Muraid
Aoibehean < not too sure on the spelling pronouced Eveen

You might want to consider three syllable names, as I think the 3-1-2 rhythm is generally more pleasing. That’s one reason [name]Finnegan[/name] sounds great. I would also say that you should NOT use [name]June[/name] a second time as a middle name. [name]Clare[/name] is lovely, or you might want to tie the two together with a related name like [name]May[/name] or [name]Jane[/name].

A few three-syllable ideas you might like with [name]Stella[/name]: [name]Miranda[/name], [name]Clementine[/name], [name]Delilah[/name], [name]Adeline[/name], [name]Annabel[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Lucia[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Camilla[/name], [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Tabitha[/name]

Aw I love [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name]!

[name]Fern[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Lois[/name] [name]Faye[/name]

can’t think of many boys names…

What do you guys think about [name]Betty[/name]? I do love names from that era…

Mummy, I think [name]Betty[/name] (as a nickname for [name]Elizabeth[/name]) would be so cute with [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name]! I love it! :slight_smile: What about [name]Oona[/name]?

I must say [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name] is to cute : )

[name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name], I love [name]Clare[/name] as a middle name with that spelling… [name]Oona[/name] I have never heard. I do know a Oola and she is cute! I think I like [name]Oona[/name] [name]Clare[/name] : )

What about [name]Lucia[/name] nn [name]Lucy[/name] I think [name]Lucia[/name] and [name]Stella[/name] are darn cute together! Good [name]Luck[/name]

Thanks everyone, I’m glad for the favorable responses- may print them out to show my husband once we do know the sex- if baby is a girl I will need to do some convincing on [name]Oona[/name]! Though I think we are both happy with [name]Finnegan[/name].

Thanks again!

So…just found out today, it’s a girl! And we are going with [name]Oona[/name]! Now a middle name: something to honor my husband’s late [name]Nana[/name], [name]Loretta[/name]. She was French Canadian, birthday in [name]June[/name]. Give me some “L” names please- not [name]Louise[/name], it was [name]Nana[/name]'s sister’s name. The birthstone for [name]June[/name] is [name]Pearl[/name]- [name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name] and [name]Oona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]?

Help please!

Yea! A little girl! :slight_smile: Okay… L middle names for [name]Oona[/name]:

[name]Oona[/name] [name]Laurel[/name]

[name]Oona[/name] [name]Lillian[/name]

I think your idea of [name]Oona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is great! :slight_smile:

Best wishes to you, Mummy!

Congratulations! (I just posted then realised that you were going with [name]Oona[/name], however if you change your mind, here are a few ideas). BTW I love [name]Fern[/name] and [name]Fern[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] is pretty.

[name]Stella[/name] [name]June[/name] is all style. It is feminine and spunky, very nice!

[name]Dorothea[/name] [name]Claire[/name] nn [name]Thea[/name]. I like [name]Claire[/name] spelt like this.

[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Elspeth[/name] nn [name]Hatty[/name]

[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Julia[/name] nn [name]Mollie[/name]

[name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Lilian[/name] nn [name]Gwyn[/name]

[name]Olwen[/name] [name]Lucy[/name]

[name]Jane[/name] [name]Elise[/name] I love [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Freya[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]

I think [name]Oona[/name] is difficult to say and doesn’t have that feminine aura of your first daughter’s name. (Sorry, just my opinion)

There was a thread here recently about [name]Finnegan[/name] and people started singing about [name]Michael[/name] [name]Finnegan[/name] so that put people off the name.
