Arlo, Rhea, &

Hello Nameberries!

Are you ready for a name challenge? Ha!

I am expecting my third child and feeling totally stumped! With my other two children, we’ve created a theme I’d like to stick with. I like the idea of a 4 letter name, a name with vowel sounds, and something old, unique, but not made up sounding…

[name_f]My[/name_f] son’s name is [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_m]Morris[/name_m] and my daughter is [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]. Both middle names are family names. Out last name is Scottish and begins with an M.

So far hubby and I are considering these names, but nothing feels quite right yet…

Girls: [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_u]Nev[/name_u], [name_u]Keeva[/name_u], [name_f]Jane[/name_f], [name_f]Esme[/name_f], [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]
Hubby loves [name_f]Winona[/name_f]

Boys: [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Kit[/name_u], [name_u]Finn[/name_u], [name_m]Odin[/name_m], [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]

Would love to hear your suggestions!

I think [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] and [name_u]Kit[/name_u] are perfect for your boy names!

Girls… maybe:

[name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] “Lottie?”
[name_f]Tess[/name_f]
[name_f]Helen[/name_f]
[name_f]Fern[/name_f]

:woman_shrugging:t3::heartpulse: love love love your current sibset! And congrats:)

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

Here are my thoughts on the ‘not quite right’ lists:

Girls-

Wren-It’s not my favorite. I like it in theory. It has all of the good qualities; sleek, kind, nature-y, pretty bird imagery, not terribly over done but fairly simple. I just feel like it has a bland sound.

Nev-This seems lacking. Like [name_f]Neve[/name_f] would look better, but then people might say ‘Neeve’. I actually much prefer [name_f]Niamh[/name_f] to either (said Neeve) [name_u]Nev[/name_u] or [name_f]Neve[/name_f]. It’s a little tricky, but it’s unique & polished & feminine w/out being frilly. Really great w/Arlo & [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] too.

Keeva-I feel like this looks kind of modern & off…but I like the Irish (i.e. more difficult!) spelling of [name_f]Caoimhe[/name_f] a lot.

Jane-Even though it’s so ‘plain’ (not in a bad way!), I kind of love it w/your sibling set.

Esme-I love love [name_f]Esme[/name_f]. Definitely my favorite of the group. It’s so magical sounding, but still feels down to earth & not fussy.

Ellie-I adore [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], but mainly as a nn. Also, it’s super duper popular, so you’d probably not prefer to use it for that reason.

Boys-

Felix-This is really cute w/Arlo & [name_f]Rhea[/name_f]. Not my personal favorite. I feel like it sounds cartoon-ish. And I’m totally in the minority, because people seem to like it.

Kit-Feels more upper-crust than [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] & [name_f]Rhea[/name_f], but it’s a darling name. Short, simple, smart, spunky, not too popular.

Finn-I love it. I love it w/your sibling set as well. It’s so friendly & sporty & lovable, but also sounds very put together. It may be getting a tad popular.

Odin-This feels perfect too, & is not getting a tad popular.

Ellis-I like it. I think it’s handsome & charming for a boy. Maybe getting used on girls some.

Sorry for any repeats, but here are a few that you may like:

[name_f]My[/name_f] hubby actually loves Basil… the nn [name_m]Bas[/name_m] is cute, but I think it feels a little too refined for me.

I also love [name_m]Innes[/name_m]!

Thanks :blush:

I think [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is my favourite too, although I do know 2 kids with the same name in our community. It fits so well and is super cute!

Thanks so much for all your ideas!

From your current list, [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], [name_f]Rhea[/name_f], and [name_m]Odin[/name_m] would sound soooo perfect! Really liking [name_u]Kit[/name_u] and [name_f]Esme[/name_f] as well.

How about [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] for a girl?

I love [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] and had thought about going with [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] (my maternal grandmothers name) with the nn [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], but alas, hubby doesn’t like it!

Other names I love that he had vetoed: [name_u]Briar[/name_u], [name_u]River[/name_u], [name_u]Aspen[/name_u], [name_m]Ivar[/name_m], and [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u]

It’d be so much easier to choose if we didnt have to agree, haha :sweat_smile:

I love your sibset!

[name_f]Esme[/name_f] or [name_m]Felix[/name_m]!

[name_f]My[/name_f] hubby loves [name_m]Cecil[/name_m] and has been referring to the baby with that name! It’s cute, but I think it has too much of a refined sound to it.

I love, love [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]!

Thank you :blush:

[name_m]Lief[/name_m] is on my list too!!

Thanks for the ideas :blush:

On the contrary I think both [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] and [name_m]Cecil[/name_m] are old semi forgotten boys names so they weld nicely together. [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] also shares the same forgotten charm

[name_u]Arlo[/name_u], [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] and [name_m]Odin[/name_m] :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes: im in love
