Augustin and ........ ??????


I’m 27weeks with a second baby (I think boy but we don’t know) and am absolutely stuck on the name. Our first son is [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and I really want a name that i love as much.

We don’t want another “A” name but like vowels so we are looking at a lot of “E” names. A lot of awesome names (like, for example, [name_u]Elias[/name_u]) seem to rhyme with our last name. We like [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] a lot but I worry that it SOUNDS too similar to [name_m]Augustin[/name_m]. [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]…IDK…is it too similar???

Also, is it true that “A” names give kids an academic advantage and that therefore using any other letter for a second child (especially the letter “E”!!!) is a bad idea?? Ugh. I feel like this kid is going to leave the hospital without a name at this rate.

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & Nicolaos

And yes, ‘A’ names have been shown to give a slight advantage, but prob’ly not as much as reading to your children, for instance.

I think [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] are gorgeous together, and not too similar at all.

[name_m]How[/name_m] about…

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_u]Emory[/name_u]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Lysander[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Gabriel[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ozias[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Phelan[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Phineas[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m]

I think they sound a bit similar. I love [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m] and [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] from the suggestions above though.

When I first read [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] I thought, [name_m]Aurelien[/name_m]! But since you’re not interested in “A” names, here are a few suggestions:

  1. [name_m]Beno[/name_m]ît
  2. [name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
  3. [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m]
  4. [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
  5. [name_m]Johannes[/name_m]
  6. [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]
  7. [name_m]Vincent[/name_m]
  8. [name_u]Laurence[/name_u]
  9. [name_m]Jasper[/name_m]
  10. [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]

I don’t think [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] sounds too much like [name_m]Augustin[/name_m], and I think they go well together, but here are some other ideas. (I wouldn’t be concerned with the initial vs grades either)

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m](so handsome by the way) &

[name_m]Forester[/name_m] (nickname [name_m]Ford[/name_m]?)

I wouldn’t worry about the “A” initials thing. I don’t think one kid would academically excel solely based on an initial. :slight_smile: Some ideas:
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Felix[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Conrad[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Benedict[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Linus[/name_m] (unless it doesn’t work with your last)

Other A names:

Good [name_m]Luck[/name_m]!!

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and:


I like these ‘E’ names with [name_m]Augustin[/name_m]…

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_u]Easton[/name_u]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ernest[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Eugene[/name_m]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_u]Everest[/name_u]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] & [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]

What about [name_m]Marcel[/name_m]? [name_m]Viggo[/name_m]? i also second [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m].

I have never heard the “A” name thing - at any rate, don’t worry about it and use a name you love.

I like classics like [name_m]Edward[/name_m] or [name_m]Eric[/name_m]. But how about any of these:

Or something with a Celtic influence… [name_m]Ewan[/name_m] or [name_m]Eamon[/name_m]?

I do like [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] and think it could work with [name_m]Augustin[/name_m]. What about [name_m]Emmerich[/name_m] or [name_m]Immanuel[/name_m]/[name_m]Emmanuel[/name_m] or [name_m]Orlando[/name_m] or [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m]?

Congratulations, @caymangirl!

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] is an exceptional pairing; I really love it for you!

[name_u]Emerson[/name_u] would indeed make a good brother name {the “n” endings do not make them too similar for me}.

But I am so hoping you’ll once again be just a wee bit more adventuresome {you know … just shy of “gladiator” but not :)}:

[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] {and}

[name_m]Benedict[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Cicero[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Cornelius[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Leopold[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Lysander[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]

Thanks everyone!!! This is really useful! Ahhh some of you remember me …yup I’m posting about this a lot :wink:

You know, [name_m]Evander[/name_m] is high on the list too but I’m not sure it sounds great with our last name (starts with D) and it sounds a bit TOO masculine to me…same with something like [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] for example.

I feel like [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] has that same softness to it that [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] does. You know, [name_m]Fox[/name_m] was our planned middle name choice for a second boy for the longest time but now we are moving towards [name_u]Winter[/name_u] instead. Or using a more common family name. IDK. I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_m]Augustin[/name_m]'s name but it “just happens” to be unusual. There’s a lot of other unusual names (that do “go” with it) that I just don’t like.

Naming a boy is hard. Naming two is damn near impossible. We already used the PERFECT name :slight_smile:

Aw, don’t lose heart :(.

I’m confident, with your good taste, this boy will be named just as well.

I’d forgotten that [name_m]Evander[/name_m] was previously on your list.

[name_u]Everett[/name_u], [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] {and} [name_m]Montgomery[/name_m] – all names you pondered at one time – would make good brother names, too.

A few more names I’m hoping will inspire a name you love as much as [name_m]Augie[/name_m]'s :):

[name_m]Beauregard[/name_m], [name_m]Casimir[/name_m], Emeric, [name_u]Emory[/name_u], [name_m]Leander[/name_m], [name_m]Matthias[/name_m], [name_m]Phineas[/name_m], [name_m]Raphael[/name_m], [name_m]Remington[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
