Brother needed for Eden

[name]Hi[/name] everyone,

We are cutting it fine really here… my due date is 9 days away and still no name for the little boy we are expecting!

Our daughter is called [name]Eden[/name], so we are ideally looking for something similarly unusual or at least outside the usual Top 50s - though not brave enough for anything too off the wall.

The names we currently like, but somehow havent struck us as the ‘right one’ are

[name]Gilbert[/name] ([name]Gilby[/name])
[name]Jed[/name] / [name]Ned[/name]
[name]George[/name]
[name]Beau[/name]
[name]Monty[/name]
[name]Milo[/name]
[name]Otto[/name]
[name]Giles[/name]
[name]Barnaby[/name]
[name]Elliot[/name]
[name]Theo[/name]
[name]Gabrial[/name] / [name]Gabe[/name]

Would love to hear your suggestions as the short list just aint getting any shorter and my partner is threatening to pick one out of a hat!!

Thanks

:slight_smile:

[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Beau[/name] is my favorite. [name]Beau[/name] is definitely a name you don’t hear much on little boys but it’s so cute and ages well.

Some other ideas are:

[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Dashiell[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Aaron[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Greggory[/name] or just [name]Greg[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Vaughan[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & Celyn (pronounced [name]Kellan[/name])
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Asa[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & Cainan/[name]Kenan[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Caleb[/name] (love [name]Caleb[/name])
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Javan[/name] (pronounced [name]Jay[/name]-ven; definitely fits in with the popular [name]Aiden[/name]/[name]Jadon[/name]/[name]Kayden[/name]/[name]Hayden[/name] but it’s also it’s own)
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Joel[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Levi[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Matthias[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] & [name]Seth[/name]

I put the names together with your daughter’s name so if you read through them you can say them together that way you can tell if it’s easy for you to say them and see how well they flow together. Cause you’re going to be saying these names everytime someone asks you about your kids.

[name]Gilbert[/name] ([name]Gilby[/name])- While cute in theory I’m not sure if I would want to be a boy named [name]Gilbert[/name]. It does have that “geeky” vibe which isnt bad but could make him a target for teasing. Its not a deal breaker just something to consider.
[name]Jed[/name] / [name]Ned[/name]- These are way to nick-namey. Also, [name]Ned[/name] can be made for the letters in [name]Eden[/name]. They seems to similar imo.
[name]George[/name]- I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]George[/name]. So handsome and refreshing.
[name]Beau[/name]- Cute, but kinda childish.
[name]Monty[/name]- I love this one too but I think it should be a nn. [name]Montgomery[/name] is a big name though, so I’m not sure if that would be much better.
[name]Milo[/name]- [name]Milo[/name] goes perfectly with [name]Eden[/name].
[name]Otto[/name]- I love this one too.
[name]Giles[/name]- Cute.
[name]Barnaby[/name]- Okay, but Iwould fear the nn [name]Barney[/name].
[name]Elliot[/name]- I love this one. [name]Do[/name] you mind having two Es?
[name]Theo[/name]- This is my favorite off your list. I love how it sounds with [name]Eden[/name].
[name]Gabrial[/name] / [name]Gabe[/name]- [name]Gabriel[/name] is nice strong name for a boy. I have always liked it. It is a little on the popular side number wise, eventhough I’ve never met a young [name]Gabriel[/name].

Off your list I like [name]George[/name], [name]Milo[/name], [name]Theo[/name], and [name]Gabriel[/name] best with [name]Eden[/name].

Some more ideas :

[name]Eden[/name] and [name]Joshua[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] and [name]Caleb[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] and [name]Finn[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] and [name]Ryan[/name]

[name]Eden[/name] and

[name]Justin[/name]
[name]Asher[/name]
[name]Jacob[/name]
[name]Mason[/name]
[name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Hunter[/name]

[name]Eden[/name] and [name]George[/name] are great! I like [name]Elliot[/name] too if you don’t have a problem with EE.
A few seem very nn for me ([name]Ned[/name]/[name]Jed[/name], [name]Monty[/name]) but perhaps have full names with these as NN?

Thanks everyone…good to talk to someone who I’m not related to / doesnt feel they have to say ‘they are all nice’ for fear of offending.

:-))

Thanks sellons, yes, listing them with [name]Eden[/name] was really helpful. Good tip :slight_smile:
