Baby brother for Dorothy, Gus, Daisy

Back again needing more help (only a week and half or less before baby boy gets here!)

Our last name is [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]. Siblings are: [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_u]Gus[/name_u] [name_u]Perry[/name_u], and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_u]Joyce[/name_u].

I’m not looking to match the G name since there really aren’t any G names we love for baby boy. I am looking for a name that flows with the sib-set.

Names we like so far:

[name_m]Odin[/name_m] [name_u]Rivers[/name_u] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_u]Rivers[/name_u] [name_m]Odin[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]River[/name_u] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Odin[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_m]Wes[/name_m] [name_u]River[/name_u] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_u]River[/name_u] [name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_u]Archer[/name_u] [name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

[name_u]Archer[/name_u] [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]















[name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] is my favorite with [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f], [name_u]Gus[/name_u] and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] :heart_eyes:

With [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f], [name_u]Gus[/name_u] and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], I adore [name_m]Odin[/name_m] [name_u]Rivers[/name_u], [name_u]Rivers[/name_u] [name_m]Odin[/name_m], [name_m]Jones[/name_m] [name_u]River[/name_u] and [name_u]Archer[/name_u] [name_m]Jones[/name_m]. I do think [name_m]Louis[/name_m] probably fits best, but its not my favorite name. [name_m]Wes[/name_m] is cute as well, but it seems kind of modern compared to siblings.

Oh, I loooooove Dorothy, Daisy, Gus, and Wes! I think it might be because it ties the boys’ names together without matching the first initial. The similar length and final -s tie them together, and I even just realized it mirrored your girls’ final shared final y.

I think part of the reason it was the one that stuck out to me as the most cohesive is because all of these parallels were super subconscious until I started typing it out and trying to consciously figure out what I liked so much about the set.

Wes brings that cohesion in a way that feels natural! Something about Wes River Elliot feels too abrupt though. I quite like Wes Rivers Elliot though. The fluid “s” smooths out the transition and sort of lengthens the sound of his middle name. Just lovely!

But though I like Rivers as a middle to Wes, for me it doesn’t quite work in the first spot. It just feels too modern next to his siblings.

As for you’re other names, the only other first that I really like with the sibset besides Wes is Loius (for me, with his siblings, I prefer it pronounced Loo-is instead of Loo-ee). Next to his other siblings’ names, Odin feels too heavy and hard and bold, and both Jones and Archer, like River, feel a little too modern. For me, they’re lacking the vintage charge of Dorothy, Gus, and Daisy.

It would be pronounced Lou-is (Lewis) not Lou-ie!!
Thank you for your help

Well then, I extra love it! And they really are all great names, no matter what you pick!

[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] have the same feel and ending to them, so to do that with your boy’s names, I’d say [name_m]Louis[/name_m] and [name_u]Gus[/name_u] have that same feel and ending to them as well. I just find [name_m]Wes[/name_m] and [name_u]Gus[/name_u] to be too close to each other.

Another vote for [name_m]Louis[/name_m] from your list! [name_m]Wes[/name_m] and [name_m]Jones[/name_m] would be runners-up. As others have said, since we’re looking to flow with the sibset, the others on the shortlist don’t match the vintage vibe of [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f], [name_u]Gus[/name_u], and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] as well.

A note on [name_m]Odin[/name_m], though: I know a little boy named [name_u]August[/name_u] “Gus” whose baby brother has the middle name [name_m]Odin[/name_m]. Funny that [name_m]Otto[/name_m] is on your rejected list, too, since it’s the name of their middle brother :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I really like [name_m]Odin[/name_m], [name_m]Wes[/name_m] and [name_m]Louis[/name_m] with your sibset.

Two G names I would suggest are [name_m]Gatsby[/name_m] and [name_m]Gillis[/name_m] (can be pronounced with the |g| or |j| sound, in [name_u]Sweden[/name_u] we say it like the latter).

Other suggestions:
[name_m]Brose[/name_m] (like Ambrose)
[name_m]Cole[/name_m] (or Colby)
[name_u]Huxley[/name_u] (or Hux)

Good luck!
