Ivy, Martin, Oscar, June, &…

I am unexpectedly expecting baby #5, and thinking about names to distract myself from how crazy that feels. My lists are super short though and I’m looking for inspiration! I like recognizable and easy to spell, but not super trendy (fine with it becoming more popular, just hopefully not rocketing up the charts). I don’t want to repeat first letters of my other children’s names. I might like an -a ending for a girl or -o for a boy? Not totally set on that, but it would give each child a unique sound.

So far I’ve got:

Ada
Rosa
Thea (unlikely to use, but love it)
Eliza
Ramona

Emile (this is probably too confusing for an American audience for my usual tastes)
Franklin
Sylvan

So, what would you name a sibling for Ivy Coraline, Martin Jake, Oscar Truman, and June Lyra?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

You did a nice job the first four times!

Here are my thoughts for a little brother or sister-

Girls:

Ada-I think that [name_f]Ada[/name_f] is really sweet, smart & pretty. It’s simple & vintage & goes perfectly w/your crew. It’s getting kind of popular, but I don’t think that it’s top ten material.

Rosa-This is okay. I really adore [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] even [name_f]Rosalia[/name_f]. I can’t get into just [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] though. Maybe it feels too dramatic?

Thea-Too bad, I like this. It gives me very similar vibes to [name_f]Ada[/name_f], but maybe less common. [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is really getting popular for a boy though.

Eliza-This is good. I don’t like it as much as the [name_f]Ada[/name_f] or [name_f]Thea[/name_f]. Maybe I’m just annoyed that it’s getting trendy due to [name_m]Hamilton[/name_m].

Ramona-This is a name that I should like, but just can’t get into. It’s perfectly nice & well known but not popular. I just think that it sounds a little bit heavy.

Boys:

Emile-I agree that this is not quite right if you’re in the U.S. People won’t know how to say it & think that it sounds feminine.

Franklin-This is cute & totally fits w/the vibe of [name_m]Martin[/name_m] & [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] especially.

Sylvan-Not into this one. Something about it sounds snake-y…which is weird, because I really like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] for a girl.

Firstly congratulations!

Your children have lovely names I especially adore [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] that’s beautiful swooning over [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Lyra[/name_f].

Anyways moving onto baby #5 from your list I love all your girls with my favourite being [name_f]Rosa[/name_f]. [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] is such a gorgeous name that has this old school Hollywood glamour vibe she’s stunning feeling rather refreshing. I like [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] in your sibling set especially as your girls have strong word associations that feel connected to nature. The name [name_u]June[/name_u] has so many nature connections in my opinion so I feel that [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] definitely is in keeping. After [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] my favourite is [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] for your sibling set.
Suggestions:
[name_f]Sadie[/name_f]
[name_f]Polly[/name_f]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f]
[name_f]Viola[/name_f]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilian[/name_f]
[name_f]Grace[/name_f]

With your boys my favourite is [name_u]Franklin[/name_u] and I think he works the best with your boys names whereas I feel [name_m]Emile[/name_m] & [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m] are very stylistically different.
Suggestions:
[name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]

I think [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] or [name_f]Raya[/name_f] would be a good addition for your children. [name_f]Rhea[/name_f] (Ree-ah) and [name_f]Raya[/name_f] (Ray-ah).

Another thing I noticed is [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] has 3 letter, [name_u]June[/name_u] has 4, [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] has 5 and [name_m]Martin[/name_m] has 5. So a cute pattern for your 5th child is to have 7 letters.

Thank you all for the replies. So many great suggestions!

Does anyone have any thoughts on [name_m]Stewart[/name_m]? Is the world ready for baby Stewie? [name_u]Will[/name_u] everyone talk to him in the Family [name_m]Guy[/name_m] voice? Is it too serious for our sibset? It’s a family name, and could definitely go in a middle slot. [name_u]Or[/name_u] not, only two of our kids have nods to relatives in their names.

Congratulations on number five! I think [name_m]Stewart[/name_m] would work with your family. I wouldn’t even think of Family [name_m]Guy[/name_m].

I love [name_f]Rosa[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], and [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m].

I think each of your girl ideas are flawless, and I personally love [name_m]Emile[/name_m] for a boy with your set.

You mentioned “o” endings for boys, which I think would be fun. [name_u]Nico[/name_u] or [name_u]Theo[/name_u]?

[name_u]Arlo[/name_u] would go well with siblings and gives you that O ending.

Gut check. [name_u]August[/name_u] is totally out since I already have a [name_u]June[/name_u], right? I really love [name_u]Gus[/name_u] and [name_m]Auggie[/name_m]. [name_m]Angus[/name_m] and [name_m]Fergus[/name_m] are lovely but weird with the sibset and no cultural ties (plenty of Scottish and Irish blood, but no one in the family even knew until I did our tree on ancestry, lol).

Update:

We’re pretty set on [name_f]Ada[/name_f] if it’s a girl. All of the boy names I suggested are off the table though. DH has the same issues with [name_m]Emile[/name_m] that he always had, still doesn’t like [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m] (I’ve been trying since child #2), and apparently [name_u]Franklin[/name_u] is too inextricably linked to [name_u]Franklin[/name_u] [name_m]Graham[/name_m] for him to deal with. [name_u]Francis[/name_u] (the other obvious way to Frankie) is also out because he can only think of [name_u]Francis[/name_u] Underwood from House of Cards :laughing: If we end up finding out it’s a boy, I may wait until the awesome looking new Batman movie comes out and give [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] a hard sell. [name_u]Andy[/name_u] Serkis is playing [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] and should update the dusty old man vibe a bit. I really love [name_u]Freddie[/name_u], but [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] is a bit too fancy for us.

ETA: also thinking over [name_m]Edwin[/name_m] and [name_m]Edgar[/name_m], possibly with [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] as a nickname.
