Siblings are [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] (7) & [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] (5), last name starts with T & has 3 syllables. Mom & Dad names both start with E.
Our top list is: [name_m]Miles[/name_m] (Dad’s fave), [name_m]Henry[/name_m] (my fave - [name_m]Huck[/name_m] or [name_m]Hank[/name_m] as nn?), [name_m]Hayes[/name_m], [name_m]Jack[/name_m] & [name_m]Zeke[/name_m] (or [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m] - which I do like but seems a bit much & we are not religious… I also see another “E” as a downside since DD would be only H and I didn’t intend to have an all-E family…) I think [name_m]Hayes[/name_m] is the bottom of our top 5 but we’ve kept it in the running. And I’m much less concerned about middle than first…
He was born on Friday morning and we didn’t know if he was a boy or girl. My chosen girl name was [name_f]Isla[/name_f] and I didn’t think it would be so hard to land on the boys name… we’ve been home for a few days and still going round & round so any feedback appreciated!!
What do you think is best with the sibling set? Neither of my kids has had their name shortened to a nickname before. Uniqueness isn’t as important to me as fit, but it is one of the downsides I see to [name_m]Jack[/name_m]… we originally intended to name [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] “[name_m]Jack[/name_m]” in 2012 and there are so many at his school that I’ve been glad we didn’t… But I still think it’s a handsome name.
I also think I like 2 syllable names (my own is 4 and it’s a lot) which may be why I lean to [name_m]Henry[/name_m] from this top 5 list.
Thanks for any help!!!
