I have three kids, two boys named [name]Sawyer[/name] & [name]August[/name] and a daughter named [name]Isla[/name]. I’m looking for a name to go with theirs.
My husband is Australian and we both grew up on the beach so we love the ocean, summer, being outdoors and want a name to reflect that.
[name]Sawyer[/name] was picked for [name]Tom[/name] [name]Sawyer[/name], who represents (to us) being outside, floating down the river, fishing, . . .
We picked [name]Isla[/name], because we got married on a beach on a beautiful Hawaiian island and just fell in love with the name the first time I heard it.
[name]August[/name] represents the summer and also because we met in [name]August[/name] and got married in [name]August[/name] too.
Any suggestions without naming them [name]Ocean[/name] or [name]Violet[/name]? I don’t like a lot of word names - [name]August[/name] is obviously the exception.
So far here is what I have come up with. But feel free to suggest more. Please!!! This list is just our jumping off place.
[name]Bronte[/name]: A suburb of [name]Sydney[/name], Australia, where I met my husband when I was backpacking around Australia and New Zealand. Plus, I’m an English major and [name]Sawyer[/name] is a literature name too. They prounounce it [name]Bron[/name]-Tee over there, but we would pn it [name]Bron[/name]-tae.
[name]Cora[/name]: Reminds us of [name]Coral[/name] (i.e. Great Barrier (coral) reef in Australia).
[name]Malu[/name]: [name]Isla[/name] made friends with a [name]Malu[/name] when we went on vacation in Maui. She was the cutest thing.
[name]Ariel[/name]: [name]Isla[/name]'s pick b/c she’s obsessed with The [name]Little[/name] Mermaid. Actually, all things mermaid.
[name]Ciel[/name]: pn See-[name]Elle[/name]. Means sky in French. Like it much better than [name]Sky[/name]/[name]Skye[/name].
[name]Finn[/name]: We both love [name]Finn[/name], but since we already have a [name]Sawyer[/name], we’re not sure if we can have a [name]Finn[/name] too.
[name]Kai[/name]: Means ocean, but he likes it more than I do.
Names we crossed out:
[name]River[/name]: Always think of [name]River[/name] [name]Phoenix[/name], plus a word name.
[name]Maile[/name] (I like it except it is pn like [name]Miley[/name] ([name]Hannah[/name] [name]Montana[/name])
[name]Dylan[/name] (means from the sea, but too popular)
[name]Marina[/name] (word name, plus we live next to a [name]Marina[/name].)
[name]Sydney[/name] (too popular and don’t love place names)
[name]Matilda[/name] (I love, but hubby’s ex-girlfriend’s name so definitely OUT!)
Any suggestions? Thanks!
Sorry so long!
