Judah and Foster as brothers?

My favorite two boys names are [name]Judah[/name] and [name]Foster[/name]. [name]Do[/name] you think they go together as a sibset? Are the styles too different? The popularity difference doesn’t bother me

I think they are very different in style so I don’t think go together very well at all.

[name]Foster[/name] is very last namey, [name]Judah[/name] is a biblical gem. [name]One[/name] is trendy, the other isn’t.

The names [name]Judah[/name] and [name]Foster[/name] are VERY different in style. Personally, I don’t like them as brothers because I prefer sibling names to be different but complementary. Sibling names can be taken from different styles (eg. Traditional/Classic/Biblical/Mythological names work well together as do Occupational/Surname/Unisex names) but they can’t seem worlds apart. I just feel that the names are so different that the two boys have either a large gap in their ages or were even born in separate families. Some parents don’t have any qualms about mixing opposite styles together so if you love them, you’ll have lots of company.

I agree that they’re very different in style, but for some reason, to me, they work. Probably because my style seems very similar. I love very Biblical names ([name]Caleb[/name], [name]Boaz[/name], [name]Asher[/name], [name]Elijah[/name], [name]Joshua[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Samuel[/name], etc.–and yes, [name]Judah[/name]!), but also really surnamey names ([name]Sullivan[/name], [name]Everett[/name], [name]Brody[/name], [name]Bailey[/name], [name]Avery[/name], [name]Zane[/name], [name]Boone[/name], [name]Grayson[/name], etc.). Somehow they’re different, yet, I think they work together really well. If you strip away the “Biblical” and “surname” labels, [name]Judah[/name] and [name]Foster[/name] share a smart, sensitive sort of image that unites them. So yeah, I would love to meet brothers named [name]Judah[/name] and [name]Foster[/name], and I wouldn’t find it odd at all. :slight_smile:

I think they work together well. They sound similar in that they are 2 syllables and MOST OF THE WORLD does not pick apart names the way the people who frequent nameberry do. I quite like the combo.
