Boy or Girl sibling for Winston and Frances

We have [name_m]Winston[/name_m]/[name_u]Win[/name_u] and [name_f]Frances[/name_f]/[name_u]Frankie[/name_u]

Needing help with little brother or sister! We like classic, almost [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Eyre[/name_f] style names that ideally have a fun and spunky nickname… so far, the boys and girls name list that my husband HASNT vetoed is:

Boys:
[name_m]Ford[/name_m]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m]

Girls:
[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]/[name_f]Evie[/name_f]
[name_f]Elinor[/name_f]/[name_f]Nellie[/name_f]/[name_f]Nell[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] (but I’m vetoing [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]… I think it sounds too try-hard with [name_u]Frankie[/name_u])

Is [name_m]Henry[/name_m] too common? Is [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] too common? Ugh, we’re down to the wire and I don’t trust my judgement anymore. Additional suggestions and insight would be so helpful!

[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] is so popular right now! I definitely prefer [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] anyway! [name_m]Winston[/name_m], [name_f]Frances[/name_f] and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] would make the perfect sibset! [name_f]Nell[/name_f] and [name_f]Nellie[/name_f] are such sweet nicknames too!

I love your kids’ names, and I think you have great choices for your third!

[name_m]Ford[/name_m], to me, is a name that sounds cool yet understated. I love [name_m]Henry[/name_m], especially with [name_m]Hank[/name_m] as a nickname, but I can understand concerns about popularity. On the other hand, “popular” really just means “well-liked” and there are benefits to more common names. I think either [name_m]Henry[/name_m] or [name_m]Ford[/name_m] is a good choice, but here’s a few other ideas:

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]- [name_m]Artie[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]- [name_u]Alfie[/name_u]
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m]- [name_u]Cal[/name_u]
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m]- [name_u]Ollie[/name_u]
[name_m]Edward[/name_m]/ [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]- [name_u]Teddy[/name_u]
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m]- [name_m]Cy[/name_m]
[name_u]August[/name_u]- [name_u]Gus[/name_u]

As for girl names, [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] is fairly popular, along with lots of other Ev- names. It’s a lovely name though. I like [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] nn [name_f]Nellie[/name_f], and adore [name_f]Lottie[/name_f] as a nn for [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]. Here’s a few more:

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]- [name_f]Posey[/name_f], Phi, [name_u]Jo[/name_u]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]- [name_f]Betsy[/name_f], [name_f]Bette[/name_f], [name_f]Betty[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]- [name_f]Lettie[/name_f], [name_f]Vi[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f]- [name_u]Fee[/name_u], [name_f]Lissie[/name_f]
[name_f]Helena[/name_f]- [name_f]Nellie[/name_f], [name_f]Nella[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f]
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f]- [name_u]Lou[/name_u], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f]
[name_f]Esther[/name_f]/[name_f]Estella[/name_f]- [name_f]Essie[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f]
[name_f]Mariel[/name_f]- [name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]- [name_f]Bea[/name_f], [name_f]Trixie[/name_f]
[name_f]Roxanne[/name_f]- [name_f]Roxy[/name_f]
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]- [name_f]Dot[/name_f], [name_f]Dottie[/name_f]

[name_m]Ford[/name_m] and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] sound perfect for [name_m]Winston[/name_m] and [name_f]Frances[/name_f]’ sibling. All the names on your list are fantastic! I chose the less popular options, but [name_m]Henry[/name_m], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] and [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] would create a lovely sibset too. Have you considered [name_f]Evelina[/name_f]/e? [name_f]Jane[/name_f] would actually be a great name!

What about:
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m]
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m]

[name_m]Ford[/name_m] and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f] sound perfect for your family. I love the names you chose for your kiddos, by the way.

I like the suggestion of [name_m]Percival[/name_m]/[name_u]Percy[/name_u] alot with [name_m]Winston[/name_m] and [name_f]Frances[/name_f]. [name_m]Henry[/name_m] sounds a bit too popular next to your kids imo.

I also like [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] and [name_f]Elinor[/name_f]!
