I have a son named [name_u]Cedar[/name_u] and I am due any moment with boy #2. This is our last child. My husband and I have struggled to find a “perfect” name for baby #2 and it’s stressing me out! I’ve started a few posts throughout the pregnancy and have gotten lots of kind, helpful suggestions. Sorry to make yet another.
My husband is now gunning for [name_f]Cypress[/name_f] and my main hesitation is that it’s somewhat feminine sounding, but I think it could work. However others have been really negative about using another tree name and it gives me pause.
I personally like the “tree theme” (my husband is a horticulturalist) and [name_u]Cedar[/name_u]/[name_f]Cypress[/name_f] trees have a lot of connections in the area where I live (coastal Cascadia). This makes me think it’s perfect for a set of brothers! However several people (including some Nameberries I respect) have said using two tree names is too “matchy” or don’t like the idea of a theme/2 nature names.
Talk to me about this - why? Would it be a huge mistake to use [name_f]Cypress[/name_f] with [name_u]Cedar[/name_u]? Is it because people will tease? Think it is corny? Any other thoughts?
THANK YOU in advance!! :-?
