girl name to go with brother Jack

I am struggling with name for my baby girl, we tend to like classic names but part of me wants to also show my Irish heritage too. We have a Jewish last name ([name]Friedman[/name]) and our raising our kids Catholic which is why we loved [name]Jack[/name], a strong all American name for our almost 3 year old. They are true melting pots of Irish, Italian, Russian Jew, Native American and French. Oh and we need a “B” middle name to honor my [name]MIL[/name]. Thanks!

I’d love some opinions and any ideas!

Our list is now:

[name]Kathleen[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]

Our list is now:

[name]Claire[/name] – [name]LOVE[/name] this with [name]Friedman[/name]!
[name]Caroline[/name] – favorite #2
[name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name] – favorite #3

Try these mn’s:
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Bailey[/name]

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Blaire[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Bailey[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Bailey[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Belle[/name]

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Blair[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Bridget[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Belinda[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Ruby[/name] [name]Claire[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Sarah[/name] [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]

I like the [name]Anna[/name] or [name]Clara[/name] suggestions above, also.

Thank you !
[name]Claire[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] are my faves too. I do like the suggesstion of [name]Clara[/name] too. Plus my mother is a C so if we could find a C and B name we could honor both grandmothers. My only concern with [name]Caroline[/name] is that I think [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] sounds like we are trying to be the [name]Kennedy[/name] family but my husband thinks I am nuts and overthinking it.

I would like [name]Caroline[/name] best with [name]Jack[/name]–except for the fact that all I can think of is the Kennedys when I say them together! You’re not overthinking it!

So…I’d probaly go with either [name]Katherine[/name] or [name]Claire[/name] instead.

[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Blair[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Beryl[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

[name]Reagan[/name]- I’m not a fan of [name]Reagan[/name]…

[name]Claire[/name]- I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Claire[/name]!!!

[name]Caroline[/name]- [name]Caroline[/name] is so pretty but [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] is a little… [name]Kennedy[/name]-ish…

[name]Kathleen[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]- It’s cute but I prefer [name]Katherine[/name]…

[name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name]! I love the spelling [name]Katharine[/name] as well.

[name]Keira[/name]- It’s pretty and reminds me of [name]Keira[/name] Knightley but I don’t feel like [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Keira[/name] fit very well together.

I starred the ones I thought went best.

Good luck :slight_smile:

I would say [name]Caroline[/name], if not for the [name]Kennedy[/name]'s. I love [name]Kate[/name] and think it goes well with [name]Jack[/name], although the pairing may remind some people of the characters on Lost. I’m a huge fan of the show, though, so that might just be true for me. Very cute though!

If you are looking for other ideas, I think [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Ruby[/name] make a cute pair.

[name]Claire[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] are my favorites from your list! (I love [name]Jack[/name], by the way.) :slight_smile: If you’re concerned about using [name]Caroline[/name] with [name]Jack[/name], what about [name]Charlotte[/name] instead? [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] have the same root…

Sorry for repeats!

[name]Charlotte[/name] (I love [name]Charlotte[/name] with [name]Jack[/name]!)
[name]Celia[/name] (then again, lots of eee sound with your last name…)
[name]Margaret[/name] (nn [name]Daisy[/name] or [name]Maisie[/name]…)
[name]Rose[/name] ([name]Kennedy[/name] theme again, though)

I love:
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Bess[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] (then again, [name]Beatrice[/name] sounds kind of ee heavy with your last name to me…It may just be me, though) :slight_smile:
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Briony[/name] [name]Friedman[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

(I love [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Blythe[/name], too, but with [name]Friedman[/name], I think a longer middle flows better…)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Edited: To add [name]Cecily[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Claire[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] are my faves. I really love the name [name]Bonnie[/name] and think [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Bonnie[/name] [name]Friedman[/name] sounds lovely. I also like [name]Claudia[/name] [name]Beryl[/name] [name]Friedman[/name].

I love [name]Charlotte[/name] but cant get my husband on board.

[name]Bonnie[/name] is actually my [name]MIL[/name]'s name but I think it sounds so old fashioned. I better not let me husband see this board or I will never here the end of it. He loves [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Bonnie[/name]!

So far [name]Claire[/name] [name]Bridget[/name] and [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] are my faves.

My son is jack emerson and my daughter is [name]Grace[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]. I am also Irish Catholic and pregnant with my third child, a girl. I think [name]Jack[/name]'s other sister will be [name]Emma[/name] [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Ava[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] or [name]Mary[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name].
