Brother or sister for Bowie and Emory

Hi! We already have A little boy named Bowden [name_u]Montgomery[/name_u] ([name_u]Bowie[/name_u]) and a little girl named [name_u]Emory[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] ([name_f]Elle[/name_f]) and now we are expecting another little bundle! We aren’t finding out the gender until birth so we are looking for some unique names that go well with our other babies for both genders. Last name starts with a short “A” (like apple)

So far we like

[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])
[name_u]Winslow[/name_u] ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])
[name_f]Clementine[/name_f] ([name_f]Minnie[/name_f])
Wyla (lala)

[name_u]Calloway[/name_u] (cal)
[name_u]Auden[/name_u] (nn ???)
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] (cas)
[name_u]Jude[/name_u] (would love a longer version of this name to get to this as a nn) (not [name_m]Judah[/name_m] or [name_u]Julian[/name_u])
[name_u]Quill[/name_u] (Q)

As you can tell we Want a name with an easily given nickname. Also would love middle name suggestions but we are liking [name_f]Fae[/name_f] for girl and [name_u]Darian[/name_u] for boy. Thanks For any suggestions!

Your kids names are so cute! I would go with something shorter for a first name and longer for the middle to first the theme of your other kids.
From your suggestions:
Bowden [name_u]Montgomery[/name_u], [name_u]Emory[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] and:

Winslow [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])
[name_u]Winslow[/name_u] [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
Wyla [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] ([name_f]Lala[/name_f] or [name_f]Minnie[/name_f])
Wyla [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
[name_u]Auden[/name_u] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u]
[name_u]Auden[/name_u] [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]
[name_u]Quill[/name_u] [name_u]Darian[/name_u]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_u]Darian[/name_u]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]
[name_u]Calloway[/name_u] [name_u]Darian[/name_u] ([name_u]Cal[/name_u])


Calloway [name_u]Lexington[/name_u] ([name_u]Cal[/name_u])
[name_u]Calloway[/name_u] [name_u]Augustine[/name_u]
[name_u]Calloway[/name_u] [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] ([name_m]Casper[/name_m], [name_m]Cas[/name_m])
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Lexington[/name_u]
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Darian[/name_u]
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Augustine[/name_u]
[name_u]Collins[/name_u] [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
[name_u]Collins[/name_u] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]

Or honestly, [name_u]Auden[/name_u] for a girl is pretty too! You can also go with [name_u]Arden[/name_u] for a girl which is very pretty

So overall, my favorite combos are,

Bowie, [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_u]Cal[/name_u]
[name_u]Bowie[/name_u], [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_m]Casper[/name_m]
[name_u]Bowie[/name_u], [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_u]Auden[/name_u]
[name_u]Bowie[/name_u], [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_f]Lala[/name_f]
[name_u]Bowie[/name_u], [name_f]Elle[/name_f], and [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Good [name_m]Luck[/name_m]! Your kids have perfect names and I hope whatever you decide feels just as perfect!

Fantastic names! They’re all winners. The only one I’m not sure about is Wyla. Have you considered [name_f]Twyla[/name_f]? Or even [name_u]Wiley[/name_u]. Or [name_u]Riley[/name_u]. Or [name_u]Ryker[/name_u]?

For [name_u]Auden[/name_u] I think [name_f]Aud[/name_f] is lovely a nn (in my accent this sounds like ord but in an american accident it might sound more like odd idk).

Calloway, [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_u]Jude[/name_u] and [name_u]Quill[/name_u] are flawless. I like [name_m]Judas[/name_m] but I can understand if that feels a little close to [name_m]Judah[/name_m]. These names also make me think of my #1 boy name which is [name_m]Silas[/name_m]. [name_m]Casper[/name_m] is a cool option too.

I can see [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] working with your sibset! For either gender.

I adore the nickname [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] so can understand the appeal there. Other ways to get to [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]: [name_f]Elowen[/name_f], [name_u]Winter[/name_u], [name_f]Winona[/name_f]. Or even [name_u]Quinn[/name_u]!

Another idea for a grand middle name like siblings: [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u]? [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u] or [name_m]Casper[/name_m] [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u] maybe.

I love [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] as a middle too. Some of my fave [name_u]Clem[/name_u] combos are: [name_f]Ada[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Opal[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] and [name_f]Flora[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f].

Best of luck! No doubt you will find the perfect name :slight_smile:


Winslow [name_f]Fae[/name_f] & [name_u]Calloway[/name_u] [name_u]Darien[/name_u] are my favorites from your list

First - congratulations!!! Tie breakers are so awesome!!
I love your older kids names, and the names you are considering are also pretty rad!

Auden is beautiful and I like it for both genders. I would use the nickname [name_m]Den[/name_m] or [name_f]Audi[/name_f]

Auden ( [name_m]Den[/name_m]) [name_u]Darian[/name_u]
[name_u]Auden[/name_u] ([name_f]Audi[/name_f]) [name_f]Faye[/name_f]

Winslow also feels like it fits well with a [name_u]Bowie[/name_u] and [name_u]Emory[/name_u]. [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] , [name_f]Elle[/name_f] and [name_u]Bowie[/name_u] are fabulous together!

Of your boys I adore [name_u]Calloway[/name_u] [name_u]Darian[/name_u]
I love the name [name_u]Jude[/name_u] so some longer versions might be;
[name_m]Jedidiah[/name_m] [name_u]Darian[/name_u] ([name_u]Jude[/name_u])
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_u]Darian[/name_u] ([name_u]Jude[/name_u])
[name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] [name_u]Darian[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]

Some suggestions
[name_u]Beckett[/name_u] ([name_m]Kitt[/name_m] ,[name_u]Beck[/name_u])
[name_m]Augustus[/name_m] ([name_m]Auggie[/name_m], [name_u]Gus[/name_u])

[name_f]Adrienne[/name_f] ( Adri, [name_u]Ren[/name_u], [name_f]Addi[/name_f])
[name_f]Rebecca[/name_f] ( [name_f]Reba[/name_f] , [name_u]Rebel[/name_u], [name_f]Becky[/name_f])


Hi there.

Here are my thoughts on your lists:


Guinevere ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])- :heart_eyes: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :heart_eyes: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Need I say more? :joy: [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] has been my top girl name for nearly two decades. It’s perfect & bold & exotic & beautiful. I do love [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] too. Very sweet & lovable. Perfect w/Bowie & [name_f]Elle[/name_f].

Winslow ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])-Honestly, it fits better w/Bowden & [name_u]Emory[/name_u]. But not as a beautiful as [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f].

Clementine ([name_f]Minnie[/name_f])-This is on my top ten list too! It’s so quirky & vintage & cheerful & sassy. [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] is an adorable fun underused nn. I also like [name_f]Cleo[/name_f].

Wyla (lala)-I’m not a fan of this one. The nn seems forced, & this will just get mistaken for the super popular [name_f]Isla[/name_f] all of the time.

A few girl ideas you may like:

Anwen nn [name_f]Winne[/name_f]

Arwen nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Briar nn [name_f]Bee[/name_f]

Branwen nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Ceridwen nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Eowyn nn [name_f]Wynnie[/name_f]

Felicity nn Fliss

Gwendolen nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Gwyneth nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Harriet nn [name_f]Hattie[/name_f]

Indigo nn [name_f]Idgie[/name_f]

Imogen nn [name_f]Imee[/name_f], [name_f]Idgie[/name_f], [name_f]Ginny[/name_f] or [name_f]Minnie[/name_f]!

Juniper nn [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Junie[/name_f] or [name_f]Juno[/name_f]

Laurel nn [name_f]Lulu[/name_f]

Malin nn [name_f]Molly[/name_f]

Penelope nn [name_u]Penny[/name_u], [name_f]Polly[/name_f], [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] or [name_f]Nellie[/name_f]. I suppose [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] is a bit more common than most of my other suggestions, but it fits w/your crew nicely.

Romilly nn [name_f]Milly[/name_f]

Rowena nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Scarlet nn [name_u]Scout[/name_u]

Tessa nn [name_f]Tess[/name_f]

Valerie nn [name_f]Vivie[/name_f]

Wynn nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]


Calloway ([name_u]Cal[/name_u])-I love [name_u]Cal[/name_u]. It’s so sleek, polished, friendly, gentle yet sporty. [name_u]Calloway[/name_u] is kind of interesting. It’s certainly unique & goes w/your crew. I also like [name_m]Calum[/name_m] & [name_m]Calvin[/name_m]. [name_m]Cillian[/name_m] or [name_m]Charles[/name_m] nn [name_u]Cal[/name_u] could also work.

Auden-[name_u]Auden[/name_u] nn [name_m]Ace[/name_m]! I like [name_m]Ace[/name_m] a lot w/Bowie & [name_f]Elle[/name_f]. [name_u]Auden[/name_u] & Bowden are a little too similar though, maybe.

Caspian ([name_m]Cas[/name_m])-This is really cool. [name_f]My[/name_f] dh loves this name, & he’s read all of the [name_f]Narnia[/name_f] books. I am not into them, so I’d feel weird using this, because I feel like its a strong association. Are you fans? [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] or [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] nn [name_m]Cas[/name_m] are also nice choices.

Jude-I love [name_u]Jude[/name_u]! It’s very warm & smart. What about [name_m]Julius[/name_m]?

Quill-Hm. I don’t personally love the sound of it, but it’s okay. Instead of [name_u]Quill[/name_u] nn Q, what about [name_m]Quillan[/name_m] nn [name_u]Quill[/name_u]?

Here are a few more boy suggestions that you may like:

Aubin nn [name_m]Ace[/name_m]

Alden nn [name_m]Ace[/name_m]

Atlas nn [name_m]Ace[/name_m] or [name_f]Atty[/name_f]

Atticus nn [name_f]Atty[/name_f], [name_m]Ace[/name_m], [name_u]Gus[/name_u] or [name_u]Kit[/name_u]

Beckett nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u]

Dashiell nn [name_u]Dash[/name_u]

Dexter nn [name_m]Dex[/name_m]

Gibson nn [name_m]Gib[/name_m] or [name_m]Gibby[/name_m]
