Baby #4, I am blanking for names! Help appreciated!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] All,

I am new here and hoping to get some ideas! I am pregnant with baby #4…my 3 children are from a previous marriage. This baby is the first for my husband and I (and only!) My kids names are:

[name_m]Theron[/name_m] [name_u]Loki[/name_u] (b) (THAIR-ehn)
[name_f]Phaedra[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] (g) ([name_f]FAY[/name_f]-druh)
[name_m]Bastian[/name_m] [name_m]Levi[/name_m] (b) nn [name_m]Baz[/name_m] ([name_m]BAS[/name_m]-chen)

The “L” middle name theme just kind of happened by accident for #1 & 2. By #3 I thought, well…if he doesn’t have an “L” middle name he’ll look left out…lol I am not concerned about this baby having an “L” middle name though.

I am 14 weeks and we are not sure if we are finding out the sex or not so boy and girl names are needed!

I am Caucasian (Dutch/Italian) and my husband is [name_u]West[/name_u] [name_f]Indian[/name_f] (Guyanese)…if it’s a little girl we will likely honour his grandmother by using her name or some form/spelling of her name as the baby’s middle name - Zeleka (zuh-[name_m]LAY[/name_m]-kuh)

I am almost entirely blanking on names…for girls I have:


And for a boy I like my husband’s suggestion of:

[name_u]Teddy[/name_u] (not sure why…I just do lol possibly [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] with a nn of [name_u]Teddy[/name_u])

My husband’s offerings for girl names don’t do much for me…[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f], [name_f]Alicia[/name_f], [name_f]Aliyah[/name_f], Nealia…the problem is mostly #1) I am picky and #2) if I know someone with a name, it’s very difficult for me to see past that!

Ideas/suggestions very much appreciated!!

thanks for reading my long post!

I [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] the names of your children!

My suggestions for boys are:


I reallly like [name_u]Teddy[/name_u]. A little similar to [name_m]Theron[/name_m] though. Here are some names you may like


[name_f]Gillian[/name_f]/ [name_f]Jillian[/name_f]

For a brother for [name_m]Theron[/name_m], [name_f]Phaedra[/name_f] and [name_m]Bastian[/name_m] I would choose [name_u]Hollis[/name_u].
I like [name_u]Teddy[/name_u], but I would worry that it’s a bit close to [name_m]Theron[/name_m] and I like each child to have their own initial.

On the other hand, all your kids names are greek- so maybe go for something greek for the 4th child as well?
I like [name_u]Orion[/name_u], [name_m]Otis[/name_m], [name_u]Perrin[/name_u], [name_m]Lysander[/name_m], [name_m]Perseus[/name_m].

For a sister I would suggest [name_f]Sabine[/name_f], [name_f]Asteria[/name_f], [name_f]Cosima[/name_f], [name_f]Naomi[/name_f].

Good luck!

thanks for your reply :slight_smile: I really like [name_u]Eden[/name_u] and [name_f]Freya[/name_f]

Thanks! I had [name_u]Dorian[/name_u] and [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] on my list for a long time before…not sure I’m feeling them this time around. [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] is cute! I really love [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] but dh does not :confused:

It’s funny that all of their names are Greek…I never intended that either lol thanks for the suggestions!

Your children do have great names. The ones on your list for girls don’t seem to fit in with the rest of the sibset though and I agree there would be some issues having [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] and [name_m]Theron[/name_m] in the same group. Zeleka, Zelly/Zellie, or Leka would all make lovely mns for a girl.

Some possibilities:

[name_m]Theron[/name_m], [name_f]Phaedra[/name_f], [name_m]Bastian[/name_m], and



thanks for the huge list of suggestions! I forgot that I liked the names [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] and [name_m]Xavier[/name_m]. I’ve added them to my list!

For a girl, I like [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] and [name_f]Calista[/name_f].
