Baby Sister for Cruz & Milo


I am due any day with my third child/first daughter, and we still aren’t 100% set on a name. Our sons are [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] & [name_m]Milo[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]. [name_m]Milo[/name_m] is technically [name_m]Miles[/name_m], but he is very into the nn [name_m]Milo[/name_m]:slight_smile:

Our last name is [name_u]Green[/name_u], which complicates things for me, as I’ve always loved the name [name_f]Hazel[/name_f].

Our top contender right now is [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]. [name_m]Little[/name_m] brothers are pretty hooked on it actually, and I do love that it’s more fresh sounding than [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], almost like a fresher, less common [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]. DH likes [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f] (or [name_f]Mae[/name_f])

Also have been thrown out there: [name_f]Emma[/name_f] (so common but I love) [name_u]Josie[/name_u], [name_u]Noah[/name_u] (I like it for a girl, husband does not)

What do you ladies think of [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] with our sibset? Any middle name suggestions? Any other ideas that jump out to pair with brothers’ names?

Thanks in advance!!!

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f] would fit fine with your boys, although it strikes me as a different style than [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and [name_m]Milo[/name_m]. ([name_m]Just[/name_m] an observation, since I personally don’t care much about matching styles.)
I usually prefer [name_f]Mae[/name_f], but since [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] also ends in e I think [name_f]May[/name_f] would be nicer.

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] would be a fantastic combo, I agree it’s a shame about her popularity, but still beautiful.

[name_f]Noa[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] would also be nice-I prefer this spelling for a girl.

[name_u]Josie[/name_u] [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is another idea, I think [name_u]Josie[/name_u], [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and [name_m]Milo[/name_m] sound really spunky together!


I love [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] with [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and [name_m]Milo[/name_m].

I immediately thought of [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] with [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and [name_m]Milo[/name_m].

Other names that may fit with your boys:

Thanks for the input! We are staying away from “color names” such as [name_f]Violet[/name_f], [name_u]Navy[/name_u], [name_u]Cyan[/name_u] & [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]… Due to our last name of [name_u]Green[/name_u].

[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] is so pretty, but [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_u]Green[/name_u] sounds like a shade of paint to me :slight_smile: having a last name that’s also a color is tough!

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] is a gorgeous name, it’s very pretty and has the lovely meaning ‘from the forest’ it’s delightful. But if [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] aren’t sure and that’s a major deal breaker maybe try looking at names similar to [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f].
I think [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] would be a good alternative to [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] they have a similar sound and also [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] has the pretty meaning ‘radiant, shining one’ also I think [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] sounds fresh.
But if you feel you may know better then [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] I think [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] is defiantly a great choice here are some middle names…
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Carmen[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Rebekah[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_m]Beach[/name_m]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] is another lovely name but I think she stylistically feels to classic for brothers [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] & [name_m]Milo[/name_m] which feel quirky. [name_u]Josie[/name_u] I think is more of a nickname than a name in it’s own right. Regarding [name_u]Noah[/name_u] spelt [name_f]Noa[/name_f] it’s a legitimate girl’s name and is very popular in [name_m]Israel[/name_m] so [name_f]Noa[/name_f] could defiantly work. I don’t know whether she’d work teamed with [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] & [name_m]Milo[/name_m] feels like it’d be a brother name.

Other suggestions:
[name_u]Frankie[/name_u] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_u]Frankie[/name_u]
[name_f]Eva[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Eva[/name_f]
[name_f]Verity[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Verity[/name_f]
[name_f]Zelda[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Zelda[/name_f]
[name_f]Blythe[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]
[name_f]Willa[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Willa[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Dulcie[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Dulcie[/name_f]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Edith[/name_f]
[name_f]Leona[/name_f] ~ [name_u]Cruz[/name_u], [name_m]Milo[/name_m] & [name_f]Leona[/name_f]

I’d stick with [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] but hope this helps x

I like [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] for you. I don’t care for [name_u]Noah[/name_u] on a girl but the pp’s suggestion of [name_f]Noa[/name_f] would work and I also like the similar in sound, [name_f]Nova[/name_f].

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Justine[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Aviva[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Green[/name_u] is lovely!

I also don’t care for [name_u]Noah[/name_u] on a girl. I like the pp’s suggestion of [name_f]Nova[/name_f] - you could also use [name_f]Noemi[/name_f] or [name_f]Norah[/name_f], both of which match nicely with [name_u]Green[/name_u] and have similar sounds to [name_u]Noah[/name_u]).

(Maybe [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Norah[/name_f] [name_u]Green[/name_u])?

Lets start out with the names of her brothers [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] & [name_m]Miles[/name_m] “[name_m]Milo[/name_m]” [name_m]Henry[/name_m]

  • Both first names come across to me as less common and spunky.
  • Both middle names are more common and traditional

So for me that sorts the names you have said you liked, names others have suggested, and some I think could work into two categories, Spunky and Traditional (My personal preference on where these go)


  • [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Noah[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Luna[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Eva[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Willa[/name_f]


  • [name_f]Emma[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Josie[/name_u]
  • [name_f]May[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Alice[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]

From that list we are eliminating [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] and [name_f]Willa[/name_f] because of the last names, [name_f]Alice[/name_f] because it has the same first letter as [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] and [name_u]Noah[/name_u] because both of you don’t like it, but I’m going to throw “[name_f]Noa[/name_f]” back in as others have suggested.

So now we have:

  • [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_f]Noa[/name_f], [name_f]Luna[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_u]Josie[/name_u], [name_f]May[/name_f], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]

Combinations I like are:

  • [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_m]Miles[/name_m] “[name_m]Milo[/name_m]” [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Emma[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_m]Miles[/name_m] “[name_m]Milo[/name_m]” [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_f]Noa[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_m]Miles[/name_m] “[name_m]Milo[/name_m]” [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_f]Luna[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_m]Miles[/name_m] “[name_m]Milo[/name_m]” [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_u]Josie[/name_u]

Goodluck :slight_smile:

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] would be great! I drawback for me is that when you call their names or introduce them it would be, “[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and [name_m]Miles[/name_m].” Out loud, I’m hearing [name_f]Suri[/name_f] [name_f]Cruise[/name_f].

My favourite is [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]… then they all have that soft “z” sound in their names.

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] doesn’t go very well with [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] or [name_m]Milo[/name_m]. It’s a very soft name with a gentle character, but it can also be austere. I know a couple Emmas who don’t seem to suit their name, and my opinion is that for all it’s popularity it can be hard to wear.

[name_f]Willa[/name_f] (I think this has the worldliness of [name_u]Cruz[/name_u] and the friendliness of [name_m]Milo[/name_m])
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f] (I like how this shares the soft “z” sound with [name_m]Miles[/name_m] and [name_u]Cruz[/name_u])

Ha- my first thought before reading the post was [name_f]Olive[/name_f]. That’d be worse than [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] is perfect: [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_m]Milo[/name_m], and [name_u]Cruz[/name_u]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it.

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] is very nice. On my list:

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Coraline[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Meredith[/name_u] - this one would sound really good with last name.
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]

You could prob get away with [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]?

Also one other thought: [name_f]Stella[/name_f].

Thank you!! I love hearing your opinions!
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] is now on the table as well, and I am pretty in love with it.

If she ends up being a [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], I’m very happy to be receiving such positive feedback. :laughing::two_hearts:

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] is perfect!
