Help with sibset!

[name]Hi[/name] Berries! [name]Long[/name] time lurker here, posting because I would love some help starting my sibset!

I’m mom to 2yo [name]Xander[/name] [name]James[/name], and am contemplating names for a younger brother or sister (we don’t know which) due in [name]December[/name]. Last name is one syllable, rhymes with [name]Moss[/name].

For a baby boy:
[name]One[/name] name that we both [name]LOVE[/name] is [name]Dexter[/name]. [name]Do[/name] you think that [name]Xander[/name] + [name]Dexter[/name] is way too X-heavy for siblings? We’re planning on having more, so I want another boy to be able to fit in if #3 is a boy. It’s turned out that we seem to both like names ending in -er/-or, so possibly that could continue the pattern without needing to give #3 an X in his name.

What are your thoughts? What do you think of my other choices if we decide not to go with [name]Dexter[/name]? And what are some possible boy siblings you like for [name]Xander[/name]? ([name]Feel[/name] free to throw in middles as well… we like spunky first names with traditional middles!)

[name]Xander[/name] +…

For a baby girl:
No desire to keep the -er trend going with a girl. I’ve listed below some names I like (they’re kind of all over the place in terms of style!), but feel free to give suggestions that may work well with [name]Xander[/name]! (Cousin’s name is [name]Maiya[/name] [name]Jane[/name], so it can’t be either of those).


No thoughts? I would love some Nameberry advice! :slight_smile:

I think [name_u]Dexter[/name_u] works well with [name_m]Xander[/name_m] for a sibset, but I really like [name_m]Xander[/name_m] and [name_m]Trevor[/name_m] or [name_m]Xander[/name_m] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] (especially if you use [name_m]Oz[/name_m]/[name_m]Ozzy[/name_m] as a nn). Some possible combinations:

[name_u]Dexter[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_u]Dexter[/name_u] [name_m]Charles[/name_m]
[name_m]Trevor[/name_m] [name_m]Philip[/name_m]
[name_m]Trevor[/name_m] [name_m]Frederick[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]David[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m]

From your girls list, I like [name_m]Xander[/name_m] and [name_f]Flora[/name_f], [name_m]Xander[/name_m] and [name_f]Imogen[/name_f], and [name_m]Xander[/name_m] and [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]. Some possible combinations:

[name_f]Flora[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_f]Flora[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Camille[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]

Other girls names you might like:

[name_m]Xander[/name_m] and
