building a sibling set around my favorite name

[name]Hi[/name] Berries,

I posted a post a few weeks ago about the name [name]Veda[/name]. I totaly fell in love with this name. (pron. Vayda)
My husband loves this name also…but here is the problem. It is so different from the names wich we also love.

[name]Elena[/name] (we can’t use this one. I names my cat [name]Alana[/name])
[name]Liliana[/name] (can’t use this one either cause our other cat is named [name]Lilith[/name])
[name]Rose[/name] ([name]Love[/name] [name]Rose[/name], but i’ts extremely popular in [name]Holland[/name]) (Roos)
[name]Violet[/name] (Like. Not sold on this name) (The dutch would pronounce this completly wrong)

Those are much more frilly than [name]Veda[/name]. My concern is that I won’t find a sybling name to go with [name]Veda[/name]. We were thinking of the combo [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]. Maybe even [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Lily[/name]…

Could you help us build a sibling set with [name]Veda[/name]? So [name]Veda[/name] and a name for a brother and sister?


I could really do with some suggestions, bump! :slight_smile:

[name]Veda[/name] is really pretty! I like [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Lily[/name] and [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name].

For a brother, how about [name]Owen[/name], [name]Charles[/name], [name]Maxwell[/name], [name]Apollo[/name], [name]Ansel[/name], [name]Ellis[/name], [name]Casper[/name], [name]Orion[/name]?

For a sister, how about [name]Ruby[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name], [name]Carlotta[/name] / [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Amalia[/name], [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Lucinda[/name], [name]Natalia[/name], [name]Mirabella[/name]? I don’t know if you would consider doing a double V thing, but you might like [name]Verity[/name], [name]Verona[/name], [name]Vivienne[/name]?

I hope this helped a bit. Good luck!

With the exception of [name]Liliana[/name], I don’t think any of your other names are particularly more frilly than [name]Veda[/name]. In fact, [name]Elena[/name] sounds quite similar to [name]Veda[/name] to me. I think you could give the next sibling a slightly more frilly or more straightforward name, as long as it’s not something way out there (like [name]Arabella[/name]). By the way, [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Lily[/name] is a beautiful name!

Girls: [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Ruth[/name], Rhoswen, [name]Sophie[/name]/[name]Sophia[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name]

Boys: [name]Edward[/name], [name]Edmund[/name] and [name]Leopold[/name] come to mind, don’t know if those are at all your style though!

I love [name]Veda[/name] and think sibling names (especially sisters) should be more in the exotic/ethereal category.

[name]Veda[/name] is so unique, but beautiful! Wish you the best!

  • [name]Leo[/name]
  • [name]Leon[/name]

  • [name]Lila[/name]
  • [name]Ruby[/name]
  • [name]Scarlett[/name]
  • [name]Clara[/name]

Thank you so much for the suggestions! I agree that it needs to stand out a little too. What do you think of the names:



and from your suggestions:


Boy: We find this particularly harder! Especially because we like longer names…

[name]Sebastian[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Reid[/name]
[name]Christopher[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Reid[/name]
[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Henry[/name] [name]James[/name] (My husbands favorite name)

Other suggestion are still very welcome!

Thank you so Berries!

I think [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Lily[/name] is gorgeous.

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Alma[/name], [name]Neve[/name], and [name]Vivienne[/name]/Viven/[name]Vivian[/name] with [name]Veda[/name].

Also, perhaps [name]Mara[/name], [name]Gwen[/name], [name]Ava[/name], [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Iris[/name], [name]Isis[/name], [name]Thea[/name], [name]Celia[/name], [name]Eden[/name], [name]Dahlia[/name], [name]Cora[/name], [name]Amelie[/name], or [name]Leona[/name]?

And I definitely think [name]Sebastian[/name] and [name]Oliver[/name] go great with [name]Veda[/name]. A few other thoughts are [name]Milo[/name], [name]Cole[/name], [name]Julian[/name], [name]Felix[/name], [name]Asher[/name], [name]William[/name]/[name]Liam[/name], [name]Gavin[/name], [name]Tristan[/name], or [name]Theodore[/name]/[name]Theo[/name].

I love [name]Veda[/name] and [name]Alma[/name] together. I think they’re perfect.

For boys I’m digging [name]Sebastian[/name] and [name]Oliver[/name].

Thank you very much!

We know have [name]Esta[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Alma[/name] [name]Guinevere[/name] [name]Rose[/name] as options. What do you think?

We have decided that we will drop [name]Lily[/name] from the [name]Veda[/name] combo so we need a lovely name to complete [name]Veda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] …
Any ideas?
