Going Crazy!! Help me choose my Girls name.

OK so this is my third baby. I have a boy named [name]Connor[/name] and a girl named [name]Charlotte[/name]. I have such a hard time coming up with girls names and this baby is fast approaching in [name]October[/name]. The “C” theme was not intentional and I am neither for or against it. I seem to gravitate towards A names or A ending names. Here is what I have so far and any opinions or other suggestions that would go well with siblings is greatly appreciated!!

[name]Keira[/name] (maybe [name]Ceira[/name] but I think pronounciation will be a problem)

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to Nameberry.

[name]Connor[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name] and sister…

1 [name]Bridget[/name]
2 [name]Vivian[/name]

I like [name]Claudia[/name] and [name]Bridget[/name] the most and feel that of the two in the sibset that [name]Claudia[/name] fits the best and avoids too much of the “t” sound that [name]Bridget[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name] would do.


With your sibset I like [name]Aria[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], and [name]Claudia[/name]. I think all three work well with [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name].
Congratulations and good luck!

  • [name]Athena[/name]

[name]Adria[/name] - I like this and think it works pretty well. [name]Adrienne[/name] might work better just because it’s more familiar, and more French with [name]Charlotte[/name]. This is rarer, but still not too rare.

[name]Ayla[/name] - this is pretty but I think too modern with [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name]. [name]Isla[/name]? I like [name]Isla[/name] with [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name]. [name]Layla[/name] would too.

[name]Aria[/name] -I like this and it works OK but I think some of your others work better.

Ayda - If you’re going to use this, spell it [name]Ada[/name], it’s much easier. [name]Ada[/name] sort of works. It works pretty well with [name]Charlotte[/name] but is kind of very vintage next to [name]Connor[/name]. [name]Adeline[/name] works better. Or [name]Adele[/name].

[name]Claudia[/name] - I like this name, but you are really locking yourself into a C thing with it, so I advise against it. [name]Lydia[/name]?

[name]Bridget[/name] - I like it, it shares the Irishness with [name]Connor[/name] and the -t with [name]Charlotte[/name]. You could use it, but I do think it’s a bit of a -t pattern for the girls, if it bothers you (but then you’d always have the option of Irishness, Frenchness, or letter C or SH sound to tie in a future baby, or an -er/-or ending for that matter. So it hardly locks you in in an unmanageable way).

[name]Keira[/name] (maybe [name]Ceira[/name] but I think pronounciation will be a problem) - I like it and would recommend the K spelling for sure. I think this name is a little tricky to spell no matter how you do it. It fits better with [name]Connor[/name] than with [name]Charlotte[/name].

[name]Skyla[/name] - I like it but I think it would get heard as [name]Skyler[/name] a bit. It doesn’t seem the most natural fit with [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name].

[name]Sonia[/name]/[name]Sonya[/name] - I like it but it’s definitely a totally different direction, although that’s OK. There’s ON overlap with [name]Conner[/name]. People might pronounce it both So-nya and Sah-nya, are you OK with that?

[name]Vivian[/name] - I love it and think it fits really well! [name]Vivienne[/name] would make it more French to match [name]Charlotte[/name], but [name]Vivian[/name] is also nice (actually my personally preferred spelling).

OK, so I recommend you consider [name]Adrienne[/name], [name]Isla[/name], [name]Ada[/name], [name]Adeline[/name], [name]Adele[/name], [name]Layla[/name], [name]Lydia[/name], and [name]Vivienne[/name] in addition to this list. From your list I most strongly endorse [name]Adria[/name] and [name]Vivian[/name] and only really want to steer you away from [name]Ayla[/name] and Ayda.

ETA: Oh and I kind of advise against [name]Claudia[/name] but have a hard time doing so because I like it so much : D. There’s also [name]Cecilia[/name] for another classic name that has a C but is pronounced with a distinct first sound than [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name]. Still kind of locking in the C though a bit. I recommend [name]Cecilia[/name] over [name]Claudia[/name], personally.
Good luck!

Wow! You guys are great! I probably should have mentioned that this is definately our last baby, so I don’t need to consider future additions :eek:

I kind of like [name]Cricket[/name] (though that might be a little out there), [name]Chloe[/name], [name]Clea[/name], [name]Callista[/name], [name]Clarabelle[/name] or [name]Cecilia[/name].

I vote for Claudia, it fits the C theme and it matches the siblings names the best. I’m one of those people who find it “irksome” if that’s even a word, lol, to start off with two names that start with the same letter and then quit. It makes the third child stand out and to me it seems like they don’t belong. This is just my opinion though. It’s not going to harm your child in any way, it’s just a little pet peeve of mine… It bothers me a bit more since this is your last child so it will make her stand out more if she didn’t have a C name.

With that said, Vivian would be my second choice.

Some other C names that would fit well with Charlotte and Connor:

Other C names that would go well with your kiddos:
[name]Caroline[/name]… I know this is a repeat, but it’s worth repeating

Out of the non-C names, I really like [name]Vivienne[/name] (spelled the French way) or [name]Annabelle[/name]. Or maybe a compound name like [name]Sophie[/name]-[name]Claire[/name].

A name I think goes excellent with [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Connor[/name] that I didn’t see on your list is [name]Grace[/name] . From your list though, I like [name]Keira[/name] the best.

I couldn’t do [name]Cricket[/name]…sounds like a dogs name to me! I have always liked [name]Chloe[/name], but it is way too popular. Maybe that is not a good reason not to use it? I actually like [name]Clea[/name] too but it would always be mispronounced. UGH!

We have a niece named [name]Celia[/name] so that and [name]Cecelia[/name], [name]Cecily[/name] are out…
I do like the [name]Grace[/name] suggestion too!

I know what you mean, but I think the fact that they don’t have the same “C” sound makes it not as much of a theme? Most people don’t even realize they both start with C at first. But, on the other hand I can see how it does kind of look like the third stands out…hmmm dilemma.

Here are some suggestions:

I really like [name]Claudia[/name] or [name]Bridget[/name] with your other two names.

I love [name]Adria[/name], [name]Bridget[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], and [name]Keira[/name]. [name]Adria[/name] is my fav out of all of the names but I don’t think it goes as well as [name]Keira[/name] would go. I think that [name]Connor[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], and [name]Keira[/name] sounds perfect together.

As for some “c” suggestions I think that [name]Carina[/name], [name]Corinne[/name], [name]Christine[/name], [name]Cora[/name], and [name]Cassandra[/name] are all beautiful.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Bridget[/name], [name]Sonya[/name] and [name]Vivian[/name]! I think [name]Bridget[/name] fits best with [name]Connor[/name] but I think [name]Vivian[/name] fits best with [name]Charlotte[/name], so I think either would work just fine. Good luck!

I think [name]Aria[/name], [name]Skyla[/name] and [name]Vivian[/name] goes well with [name]Connor[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name].

I like [name]Cecily[/name] with your sibset!
