First names for my triplets...

We’ve narrowed the lists to these:
Girl: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Mary[/name], [name]Ellen[/name], [name]Cara[/name] and [name]Alice[/name]
Boy: [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], [name]Edward[/name] and [name]Daniel[/name]

I need to pick 3 girls names and 3 boys names. Would be great if you could comment the 3 boys first names and the 3 girls first names you would choose from the list as siblings to [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name]. Surname is [name]Rose[/name].



  1. [name]Emma[/name]
  2. [name]Alice[/name]
  3. [name]Mary[/name] - or [name]Molly[/name]?


  1. [name]Thomas[/name] [[name]Thomas[/name] [name]William[/name] [name]Rose[/name]?]
  2. [name]Matthew[/name] [[name]Matthew[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Rose[/name]?]
  3. [name]Daniel[/name] [[name]Daniel[/name] [name]Edmund[/name] [name]Rose[/name]?]

Thanks lemon. Have decided to focus on deciding the first names - will worry about middles later - was getting so confusing!

My picks would be:
[name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], & [name]Alice[/name]
[name]William[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], & [name]Benjamin[/name]
But all are fantasitc names!

[name]Alice[/name], [name]Emma[/name] & [name]Julia[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Edward[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name] & [name]Daniel[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

I was going to choose [name]Thomas[/name] but I really like it as a middle name for [name]Benjamin[/name]. I agree with you: pick the first names and worry about middle names later. Best wishes!

Girls: [name]Mary[/name], [name]Alice[/name], & [name]Julia[/name]
Boys: [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], & [name]Edward[/name]

[name]Hi[/name] Roses!
So happy that you loved the [name]Cara[/name] suggestion, it works so well for you! [name]Just[/name] wondering though, which way you pronounce it : Care-ah or Car-ah. I personally like Car-a better, but both ways work well with [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name],[name]Joseph[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name] .
My picks for you would be :

[name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Cara[/name] - that way they all end in “a”
[name]Julia[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name] - if you’re not concerned with [name]Alice[/name] being left alone without an ‘a’
[name]Elle[/name], [name]Molly[/name], [name]Alice[/name] - (as apposed to [name]Ellen[/name] and [name]Mary[/name]) - i like this option the best actually! Or you could use [name]Ella[/name], [name]Molly[/name], [name]Alice[/name] for the 2 syllable consistency.

[name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Emma[/name] - ([name]Benji[/name], [name]Danny[/name], [name]Emmy[/name]) [name]How[/name] cute!
[name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], [name]Cara[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Alice[/name] - ([name]Ben[/name], [name]Wills[/name], [name]Ali[/name])

[name]Cara[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Daniel[/name] (C,D,E - alphabet pun)
[name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name]
[name]Elle[/name]/[name]Ella[/name], [name]Molly[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name] - Perfection!

[name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], [name]William[/name]
You really can’t go wrong with any combination of your boys names!

[name]Hope[/name] this helps!

Thankyou very much everyone. I’m sticking with the names on our list. I def want [name]Emma[/name] in the mix but otherwise am still stuck! Think [name]Ellen[/name] is at the bottom of the list though. With the boys names, I have no idea though!! [name]Love[/name] them all!

[name]Just[/name] realised I haven’t properly introduced myself - sorry! My name is [name]Elinor[/name] and I’m 30. My husband, [name]Elliot[/name], and I have been together since we were 14 and married for 11 years. We have 4 children: [name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] (14), [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name] (7) [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] (5) and [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] (2) and are currently pregnant with triplets of unknown gender (they are fairly sure one is a boy but then we were told [name]Sophie[/name] was a boy too so not trusting that too much!). Pleased to meet you all!

Aw, you are [name]Elinor[/name] and [name]Elliot[/name]? [name]Love[/name] it!

I’m really stuck on this two-syllable thing for your kids, so sorry I keep shoving it in your face, but [name]Molly[/name] [name]Helena[/name] or [name]Mary[/name] “[name]Molly[/name]” [name]Helena[/name] would be a cute way to honor your name, [name]Elinor[/name], since [name]Ellen[/name] and [name]Helen[/name], and [name]Eleanor[/name] ([name]Elinor[/name]) and [name]Helena[/name] are related! Still love the classics [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Emma[/name] for your girls, if they are girls, because they work so well with [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name], also sweet classics!

PS [name]Love[/name] [name]Cara[/name], but not with [name]Rose[/name]. [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rose[/name] gets all caught up in my tongue when I say it!

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

Girls: [name]Alice[/name] (love!), [name]Julia[/name], [name]Emma[/name]
Boys: [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name]

[name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], & [name]Alice[/name]

[name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Edward[/name], & [name]Daniel[/name]
For nicknames, I like [name]Benji[/name], [name]Teddy[/name], and [name]Danny[/name]… :slight_smile:

[name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], and [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Edward[/name], [name]William[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name]

Boys: [name]Thomas[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], and [name]Daniel[/name]. I’d avoid picking [name]Daniel[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name] as I think [name]Dan[/name] and [name]Ben[/name] could be a little too similar. I love how these work with [name]Joseph[/name] and [name]Peter[/name] in that they are all Biblical. Now if that’s not the message you are going for than perhaps [name]Edward[/name] and [name]William[/name] would be better choices. But if you have three boys than I’d make sure that you don’t have just one-non Biblical boys name.

Girls: I’d skip [name]Ellen[/name] seeing as your [name]Elinor[/name] and your hubby is [name]Elliot[/name] - seems a little too close especially for just one child to have that connection. Use [name]Emma[/name] for sure because it seems to be your favorite - that’s another reason to eliminate [name]Ellen[/name] it’s too similar to [name]Emma[/name]. I love [name]Julia[/name] with [name]Emma[/name]. I guess I’d put [name]Mary[/name] with those two but don’t feel strongly on that one.

GGG: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Mary[/name]
GGB: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name]
GBB: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name]
BBB: [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Edward[/name]

[name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Sophie[/name],

[name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name]
[name]Emma[/name], [name]William[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name] and [name]Edward[/name]

Congrats [name]Elinor[/name]!

Thankyou for your comments!

Girls names we are down to [name]Emma[/name] (def), [name]Mary[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Julia[/name]
([name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Mary[/name] [name]Julia[/name]/[name]Victoria[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Julia[/name]/[name]Victoria[/name] and [name]Julia[/name] [name]Mary[/name]/[name]Ellen[/name])

  1. [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Sophie[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Mary[/name]
    ([name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Julia[/name] and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Victoria[/name])

  2. [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Sophie[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name] and [name]Mary[/name]
    ([name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Julia[/name] [name]Ellen[/name], and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Victoria[/name])

    ([name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Julia[/name] [name]Mary[/name] and [name]Alice[/name] [name]Victoria[/name])

Boys names can’t decide between these 2 sets:

  1. [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Sophie[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name] and [name]Edward[/name]
    ([name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Thomas[/name], [name]William[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] and [name]Edward[/name] [name]Matthew[/name])

  2. [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Sophie[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name] and [name]Daniel[/name]
    ([name]Lucy[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Peter[/name] [name]Elliot[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Matthew[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Thomas[/name] [name]William[/name] and [name]Daniel[/name] [name]Edward[/name])

[name]Will[/name] worry about the other breakdowns (GGB, GBB) later!

What do you think?

Mommy [name]Rose[/name],

[name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] are absolutely stunning! Would you call [name]Mary[/name] “[name]Molly[/name]” or just [name]Mary[/name]? Very pretty names. I love [name]Alice[/name] [name]Julia[/name], too, but I think [name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Mary[/name] [name]Victoria[/name], and [name]Alice[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Rose[/name] would be amazing! Good luck!

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Julia[/name] & [name]Mary[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] are lovely. From your boys sets, I think [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Thomas[/name], [name]William[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] and [name]Edward[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] are wonderful together (aka [name]Ben[/name], [name]Will[/name] and [name]Ned[/name]). I would advise to have all names handy for the arrivals. You may have your heart set on a name that just won’t match the baby. Good luck to you and best wishes in the future! You are going to be one very busy Mommy. Hang in there!

Oh, just wanted to add that [name]Emma[/name] [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Victoria[/name], and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Julia[/name] would be nice, too! I know a [name]Mary[/name] [name]Julia[/name] who goes by “[name]Mary[/name] [name]Julia[/name].”

We’ve narrowed the lists to these:
Girl: [name]Emma[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Mary[/name], [name]Ellen[/name], [name]Cara[/name] and [name]Alice[/name]
Boy: [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], [name]Edward[/name] and [name]Daniel[/name]


  1. [name]Julia[/name]
  2. [name]Alice[/name]
  3. [name]Mary[/name]

I love [name]Mary[/name], but I’m not sure how great it will sound with [name]Rose[/name] as a surname. The back-to-back rs are a little bit hard to say.


  1. [name]Benjamin[/name]
  2. [name]William[/name]
  3. [name]Daniel[/name]

I honestly love all of them though!
