carter + ???

My two-year-old son’s name is [name]Carter[/name], and I’m trying to decide on a possible name for his soon-to-be little brother or sister. For a boy I was thinking of [name]Noah[/name] or [name]Everett[/name], and for girl I’m having a tough time. I was thinking of [name]Kira[/name], but the hard k sound might be too similar. Also, would unisex names for my daughter work? I love [name]Owen[/name], [name]Mason[/name], or [name]Sawyer[/name]. Thoughts?

[name]Hi[/name] there, [name]Carter[/name]'s mom. :slight_smile:

[name]Noah[/name]: To me, the Biblical [name]Noah[/name] doesn’t flow with the modern [name]Carter[/name], but that’s just me. :slight_smile:

[name]Everett[/name]: I love [name]Everett[/name], and definitely works with [name]Carter[/name]. :slight_smile: I think this is great! :slight_smile:

For your daughter, I’d personally stick with something feminine (with a [name]Carter[/name] and a [name]Rowan[/name], for instance, it looks like you have two sons), but if you’re going to stick with a surname, I think a feminine one could work.

[name]Camden[/name] (this may be too masculine…)

Feminine names that work with [name]Carter[/name]:

[name]Georgia[/name] (although [name]Carter[/name] and [name]Georgia[/name] may seem like a tribute to President [name]Carter[/name])
[name]Gemma[/name] (jem-ma)
[name]Lila[/name] (I think this is really cute with [name]Carter[/name]…it has that Southern feel…)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I love [name]Everett[/name]!! Sounds GREAT with [name]Carter[/name]
[name]Finley[/name] sounds cute with [name]Carter[/name] as well, but [name]Finley[/name] is becoming a VERY popular name!
what about…
[name]Leslie[/name], [name]Alexis[/name], [name]Hadley[/name]… I think [name]Brody[/name] sounds great with [name]Carter[/name]… and it could be unisex…

I would definitley go for [name]Everett[/name]! So cute!
And I would personally go with a “girly” name option. I love [name]Kira[/name], but I’m biased because that’s my little puppy’s name ([name]Kyra[/name], actually). I see what you mean with the sounds, though. Its quite similar.

Here’s some girl options…

[name]Camira[/name]/[name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name] (nn [name]Cam[/name])
[name]Mira[/name]/ [name]Mara[/name]/ [name]Moira[/name]
[name]Viera[/name] ([name]Vera[/name])
[name]Ellie[/name] (although you may want a more substantial name and use this as a nn - [name]Elaine[/name], [name]Eleanor/name, [name]Ellen[/name], [name]Eliana[/name], [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Elisabeth[/name], [name]Elise[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Ellery[/name], [name]Elodie[/name])
[name]Eden[/name] (nn [name]Edie[/name])

I like [name]Carter[/name] and [name]Ellie[/name] (with one of the various first names)
[name]Carter[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name]

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions! I love [name]Brody[/name], but unfortunately, our last name starts with an S so…B-first names probably won’t yield the best initials :slight_smile: I also think [name]Delaney[/name] is an adorable name. [name]Ellie[/name] would be such a cute name, but I’m not that into any of those ‘[name]El[/name]’ names…I knew an [name]Eleanor[/name] as a kid that I really didn’t like, and the name always brings back those memories. I wouldn’t want to think of her when I talk about my beautiful little girl. But my husband likes [name]Elise[/name], so we’ll certainly consider it. Thanks again!

I love the name [name]Sawyer[/name], I think that is cute with [name]Carter[/name]
What about Esmee I am loving that name to, Your husband might like that if he likes [name]Elise[/name]

I’m not a huge fan of [name]Everett[/name], My friend just named her boy [name]Cannon[/name] weird at first but like it now…

what are you thinking for middle names

[name]Carter[/name] & [name]Rhea[/name]
[name]Carter[/name] & [name]Keir[/name] (i love this name!)
[name]Carter[/name] & [name]Frey[/name]/[name]Freya[/name]
[name]Carter[/name] & Cree
