Caroline and Charlotte

A good friend of mine is expecting her third little person and has asked me for a list of great great sibling names (she knows I have a sickness really when it come to these things!) She may or may not use a name from the list, but it would give her some food for thought.

She and her husband are both very intelligent people. They are stylish, but not cutsy, or trendy. They like names that are firmly planted in history. For girls they tend to go for femine names that sound educated and strong.

Their girls are [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace/name and [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Quinn[/name](2 1/2).

I would love to convince them that [name]Camille[/name] is totally the best sister name for these little ladies but mama is terribly afraid people will think another “c” name is too cutsy. They are pretty sure this baby is their last.

I already have a great girl’s list started, but would love to hear what you think and see which ones you agree with. I haven’t even started on the boy’s list. Would love your input! Thanks!

[name]Hi[/name]! [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name] are lovely names. :slight_smile: If you type in either name using the “Check Out A Name” feature, and you then scroll down the page past the name’s definition/description box, you’ll see links to related name “hot lists” which are, in essense, sibling name lists.

Any classic name would go beautifully with [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name].

Best wishes to your friend! :slight_smile:

I love [name]Camille[/name]! Perhaps they could use [name]Celeste[/name] or [name]Celine[/name] and have the “C” sound different than that of [name]Caroline[/name] or [name]Charlotte[/name]. I actually think the third sister may feel left out if she doesn’t have a “C” name like her two big sisters. It’s not at all too cutesy. Sharing a C name will encourage the unity of the three sisters and I think they will probably grow up loving it! I would encourage her to find another C name that she loves. What about [name]Chloe[/name], [name]Claire[/name], [name]Clara[/name], [name]Christina[/name], [name]Catherine[/name], [name]Carys[/name], or [name]Caitlin[/name]?

By the way, my two sisters have names that start with an S and I have one that starts with an L. I always thought that I should have an S name too. So, I speak from experience. :slight_smile:

What stands out to me about [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name] is that they’re both forms of [name]Charles[/name]. In the interest of not leaving out just one sister, I suggest [name]Carlotta[/name]. Obviously there are others, but they either sound too similar to the two already in use ([name]Carolina[/name], [name]Charla[/name]) or don’t “go” with [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name] ([name]Carly[/name], [name]Callie[/name]).

PS Did they choose names with the same roots on purpose? [name]Just[/name] curious.

What lovely classic names! I [name]LOVE[/name] them!! I would skip adding another C first name to the group, These all sound very striking and sophisticated to me without being pretentious or trendy.

[name]Madelyn[/name]/[name]Madeline[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Ella[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Lauren[/name]
[name]Jacqueline[/name] [name]Paige[/name].
[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Elaine[/name]

[name]Andrew[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Jackson[/name] ([name]Jack[/name]) [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]William[/name]
[name]Nathan[/name]
[name]Cooper[/name]- If they do go for another C name. This would flow well

I would argue AGAINST choosing another form of [name]Charles[/name] and also against another C name, either soft or hard. I can see why you’d advocate for [name]Camilla[/name] as it has the right classic feminine tone and feel, but think they should move on from the C’s and I also am uncomfortable with the unconscious [name]Charles[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name] connection. I also agree would say not a name that’s TOO popular, such as [name]Elizabeth[/name], and definitely not the trendier [name]Ella[/name] or [name]Isabel[/name].

My favorites from the names that have been suggested: [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Louisa[/name], [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Antonia[/name], [name]Harriet[/name], [name]Julia[/name].

I’m going to try not to overlap too much here but if I do a bit, that’s because there’s some great suggestions on here already and I’m losing track of names. I’m also suggesting popular names that seem to go with their style.

They have chosen two beautiful names for their girls :slight_smile:
I like [name]Hariette[/name], [name]Madeleine[/name] (Though I’m biased towards this as my eldest daughter is [name]Madeleine[/name]!) and Clemetine.

[name]Gracie[/name]

[name]Clare[/name]
