A family from my church are expecting their fourth child after [name]Christmas[/name] and were puzzling over names at a recent meeting, so I told them about Nameberry and said I would ask for suggestions from all of you lovely people.
Their three older children are [name]Oona[/name], [name]Esme[/name] and [name]Otto[/name], and they won’t know the gender of the baby until the birth.
We live in [name]England[/name] and they have Irish roots, although it is not important to them to honour those roots. They would like to avoid another [name]German[/name] name, or one beginning in E or O.
They would prefer a two-syllable name ending in a vowel sound.
Any suggestions? Currently they are considering [name]Sorcha[/name] (for a girl) and [name]Hugo[/name] (for a boy). The last time I mentioned the name [name]Hugo[/name] to an American I recieved a very strange look, so I feel I should mention that it is a perfectly ordinary name over here (in fact, I know three)!
