Help me name Baby #3 with siblings Davin and Dorian!

I’m kind of stuck thinking of names for our baby and need help thinking of girl and boy names (though I’m thinking girl for some reason!). I have two boys:

[name]Davin[/name] [name]Blaine[/name] (because [name]Davin[/name] is a Scandinavian form of [name]David[/name], my dad’s name)
[name]Dorian[/name] [name]Lee[/name] ("[name]Dori[/name]" for short. [name]Just[/name] flipping through a baby name book and both dh and I liked it. I also had a [name]Pastor[/name] [name]Dori[/name] growing up and our families were good friends).

We weren’t really trying to do the whole matchy thing, it just happened that way…and now it’s making this difficult!

Here’s what I like so far:

[name]Adalyn[/name] [name]Irene[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Mae[/name]


Any suggestions??

Your sons have lovely names!

[name]Adalyn[/name] [name]Irene[/name] – I think [name]Adalyn[/name] goes very nicely with your sons’ names. The “d” in the middle gives it a similar feel without being overly matchy. Another name with “d” or “t” in the middle would probably give the same effect.

[name]Willa[/name] [name]Mae[/name] – What a cute name! To my ears it doesn’t go as nicely as [name]Adalyn[/name], but that’s totally a matter of opinion!

[name]Johnny[/name] – Doesn’t go with your other names in my opinion.

[name]Wesley[/name] – I think this is adorable, handsome, and much more compatible with [name]Davin[/name] and [name]Dorian[/name].

With a little girl named [name]Dorian[/name], I’d personally stick with unisex (or more unusual) names for your baby girl.

[name]Adalyn[/name] [name]Irene[/name]: I do love the vintage [name]Adeline[/name], but I don’t think it works with [name]Dorian[/name]'s style.

[name]Willa[/name] [name]Mae[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Willa[/name], but it’s style doesn’t work with your kids’ names for me.

[name]Johnny[/name]: I’d personally use [name]Johnny[/name] as a nickname for [name]John[/name] or [name]Jonathan[/name] (I can’t picture a grown up attorney, doctor, or professional named only [name]Johnny[/name]).

[name]Wesley[/name]: I do like [name]Wesley[/name], but I think [name]Weston[/name] is a better fit with the styles of your kids’ names.

I’d stick with more unusual or unisex names:


[name]Bryony[/name]/[name]Briony[/name] (floral name)
[name]Bronwyn[/name] (Irish)
[name]Delaney[/name] (keeping it D, which may or not be too matchy for you)
[name]Darby[/name] (ditto)
[name]Tamsin[/name] (tam-zin)



Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Jill[/name]: [name]Dorian[/name] is a boy, not a girl. [name]Just[/name] thought I’d clarify what the OP said!

Oops! Thanks so much, Namefan! :slight_smile: I totally missed the two sons part, and only saw [name]Dori[/name]. To the original poster, I sincerely apologize!

I’d personally stick with something less vintage/classic than [name]Willa[/name] and [name]Adeline[/name] with your boys’ exotic names. (I think something more exotic matches their style better).

Some more:

[name]Esme[/name] (Ez-may)
[name]Gemma[/name] (prounounced [name]Jem[/name]-ma)
[name]Isla[/name] (eye-la)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Just[/name] curious: do you pronounce [name]Davin[/name] as “[name]Dave[/name]-in” (rhyming with [name]Haven[/name]) or with the same “a” sound as “cat” and “have” (Rhyming with [name]Gavin[/name])?

[name]Davin[/name], [name]Dorian[/name] and [name]Dylan[/name] (nn Dill) - Cute!

[name]Davin[/name] [name]Blaine[/name], [name]Dorian[/name] [name]Lee[/name] and [name]Dylan[/name] [name]Oswald[/name]
[name]Davin[/name] [name]Blaine[/name], [name]Dorian[/name] [name]Lee[/name] and [name]Dylan[/name] [name]James[/name]

I like [name]Jill[/name]'s lists. Can’t remember if she put [name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name]. And [name]Pippa[/name].
