My name is [name]Becky[/name] and I’m new here. My husband and I are expecting our second child, the gender is, as of now, going to be a surprise. We have a three-year-old named [name]Dexter[/name] [name]Achilles[/name] “[name]Dex[/name]”, whose name we picked off a long list after meeting him and which was nice but also stressful because we had many names to choose from! This time we’d like to have a couple of choices for both genders. We like names that are uncommon, strong and have a sort of old-world, sophisticated vibe. We like names that have nickname potential a lot as well, though that’s not entirely necessary. I’m a classics nerd so the middle name for this baby will also likely be from Greek or [name]Roman[/name] mythology and all suggestions are welcome! Our last name is two syllables and starts McG—.
Here are a few ideas we have right now. We’d love to hear your feedback and also your suggestions!
Boys: [name]August[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Frederick[/name], [name]Leopold[/name] (really love [name]Leo[/name] but fear it’s on the rise), [name]Silas[/name]
Girls: [name]Beatrice[/name]/[name]Beatrix[/name], [name]Tallulah[/name], [name]Edith[/name], [name]Dorothea[/name], [name]Philippa[/name], [name]Jemima[/name], [name]Lucille[/name], [name]Matilda[/name]
