Help us pick a girl name!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Mommas!
We’re waiting to find out the gender of our third baby and already have a boy name ([name_u]Bennett[/name_u] or [name_m]Clayton[/name_m]) but are struggling with girl names! Our twin boys are named [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] ([name_m]Wes[/name_m] for short). So we want it to sound good with their names, too. Here are our to picks. What do you like for our family?

  • [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Elyse[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Paige[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Arden[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Thayer[/name_m]

With brothers [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m], I would think that [name_m]Thayer[/name_m] was another boy, not a girl, so I would rule that one out (especially since I don’t think it matches stylistically with your other girl names). [name_f]My[/name_f] personal favourites on your list are [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], but something about those names as well as [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] feel a bit off with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] – I think because then all three names would prominently a strong “s” sound, which might be a hard pattern to continue forward, especially since your alternative boy names [name_u]Bennett[/name_u] and [name_m]Clayton[/name_m] don’t have that “s” pattern.

[name_f]My[/name_f] top choices are [name_f]Noelle[/name_f], [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] for your family!! All are darling choices! I love the nickname [name_f]Della[/name_f] for [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], which I think would work perfectly too. [name_m]Foster[/name_m], [name_m]Wesley[/name_m], & [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]; [name_m]Foster[/name_m], [name_m]Wes[/name_m], & [name_f]Della[/name_f]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] are darling! [name_m]Clayton[/name_m] or [name_u]Bennett[/name_u] would make a fabulous brother to them.

Here are my thoughts on your girl list-

  • [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]-So so sweet. It’s old fashioned but sounds fresh. It just has a lovely sing song-y feel. But it’s smart & classy too. I really like it w/your boys’ names too.

  • [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]-I love this one! Maybe even more than [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]. It’s a bit more unique, even though neither of them are terribly common. It’s so classy & sophisticated, but still gentle & kind. Lots of great nns too like [name_f]Lula[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] or [name_f]Lola[/name_f].

  • [name_f]Elyse[/name_f]-This isn’t bad. It’s not my favorite. I’d much prefer [name_f]Elise[/name_f]. For some reason [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] looks like ‘Ee-lice’ to me.

  • [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]-This is nice. It’s charming, old fashioned, feminine yet not frilly & a little quirky.

  • [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]-This is fine. I don’t love it for some reason, but it’s different & nice enough.

  • [name_f]Paige[/name_f]-I’m not a huge fan of this one. Not sure why. It just sounds a bit brand.

  • [name_u]Arden[/name_u]-This is okay. I don’t think that it sounds very feminine.

  • [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]-I love [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]. [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] is cute too. [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] is just so lovable. [name_f]Addie[/name_f] names are pretty popular though if that bothers you. Mainly [name_f]Adelyn[/name_f] & [name_u]Addison[/name_u]. I meet so many Adelyns.

  • [name_m]Thayer[/name_m]-This seems rather masculine as little sister w/two older brothers.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

[name_f]My[/name_f] favorites are [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], but I think [name_u]Arden[/name_u] goes best with your boys! Though both [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] still work with [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] and [name_m]Foster[/name_m] :slightly_smiling_face: I don’t think [name_m]Thayer[/name_m] works just because I would think it’s a boy.


I think [name_f]Paige[/name_f], [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] are all perfect choices, beautiful, and go well with [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] and [name_m]Foster[/name_m]! Best of luck!

[name_u]Arden[/name_u] with your boys sounds perfect.

I’d pair it with something very feminine though. Like [name_u]Arden[/name_u] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], or [name_u]Arden[/name_u] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f].

Oh, I really like [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] or [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] and [name_m]Wesley[/name_m]!

I like [name_f]Noelle[/name_f], [name_f]Paige[/name_f], and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] best with your boys’ names!

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_u]Arden[/name_u] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] fit really well

[name_u]Arden[/name_u] is so perfect with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] and [name_m]Wesley[/name_m]! I also really love [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] for you, if you want something more distinctly feminine.

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_u]Arden[/name_u] or [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] get my vote.

I think that stylistically speaking, with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m], [name_u]Arden[/name_u] does fit best. However, as this is your first girl, I think that you could easily step away from that strict style cohesion and go with something a little more traditional. [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] is definitely my personal favourite from your list, which I think works well with the boys’ names. I also think [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] works very well. Actually, thinking on it, the ones that seem to work best with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m], are those without the s/z in them, as it does begin to sound hissy with a third prominent S sound.

The only one I’d suggest against is [name_m]Thayer[/name_m], as it would be likely to be assumed to be a third son, rather than a daughter, and may cause some confusion for both you and she in the years to come.

From your list, I like [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] best with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] and [name_m]Wes[/name_m].

I like [name_u]Arden[/name_u] or [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] best with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] & [name_m]Wesley[/name_m].

I love [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] for your family! [name_u]Bennett[/name_u] would be a great addiction too!

…So hard to choose! I think my favorites are [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]. [name_f]Elyse[/name_f], [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], and [name_f]Paige[/name_f] sound a little too trendy with your sons’ unique names, but all in all, I love your names!

I think from your list either [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] or [name_f]Paige[/name_f] sound the best with [name_m]Foster[/name_m] and [name_m]Wesley[/name_m].

Congratulations on baby #3 and welcome to Nameberry!

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and [name_u]Arden[/name_u] would be my picks for you. They share the cool, smart, tailored vibe of your boys’ wonderful names, but they feel clearly feminine at the same time.

[name_m]Even[/name_m] though [name_u]Arden[/name_u] is unisex, it definitely reads feminine to me alongside your boys’ very masculine names, whereas I agree with pps that [name_m]Thayer[/name_m] sounds like a third brother.

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] are my picks! [name_m]Foster[/name_m] and [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] are masculine and handsome. For this reason, I wonder if [name_u]Arden[/name_u] and [name_m]Thayer[/name_m] would allow her to stand out in contrast to her big brothers. In saying this, I wouldn’t be surprised if [name_u]Arden[/name_u] trends more and more female going into the future, so actually, you may be onto something! [name_m]Just[/name_m] a thought!

By the way, I love the nickname [name_f]Lo[/name_f] for [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]/[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] and [name_f]Addie[/name_f] for [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]/[name_f]Adeline[/name_f].
