Literary names... Either ending with -ER or -ley

We have a
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] [name_m]Finnley[/name_m] (adventures of huckleberry [name_u]Finn[/name_u] nod)
[name_m]Asher[/name_m] [name_m]Westley[/name_m] (princess bride nod)

We like [name_m]Huxley[/name_m] as a middle name (author of brave new world) but are stuck on our -ER first name!

I like [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Gulliver[/name_m], Ender, [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m], and [name_u]Parker[/name_u]. Husband is not keen on any of these…

We are team green so no clue if we have to have a boy name fight or not. (Girl will be [name_u]Scout[/name_u] [name_m]Emmerson[/name_m])

If it were me, I would choose a third name that has r in it, but does not end in -er so that it matches, but in a more subtle way. Perhaps:

[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] [name_m]Finnley[/name_m]
[name_m]Asher[/name_m] [name_m]Westley[/name_m]

[name_m]Sherlock[/name_m] [name_m]Huxley[/name_m]
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] [name_m]Huxley[/name_m]
[name_u]Dorian[/name_u] [name_m]Huxley[/name_m]

or reverse it for something like:

[name_m]Huxley[/name_m] [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m]

[name_m]Walter[/name_m] is my suggestion!

Some off the top of my head (some near rhymes included):

Looking through the first page of the list of British authors at Wikipedia, these crop up:
[name_u]Bailey[/name_u] / [name_u]Bayley[/name_u]

So maybe browse through that webpage, and then check up on what exactly the writers are known for… Your mileage may vary on what you think of their writing, and whether or not you want your child to be the namesake. :wink:

I like [name_m]Archer[/name_m] or [name_m]Miller[/name_m] with [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] & [name_m]Asher[/name_m]. Maybe [name_m]Miller[/name_m] a little bit more because of [name_m]Archer[/name_m] & [name_m]Asher[/name_m] sharing the same initial.

[name_m]Miller[/name_m]- [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Miller[/name_m] or [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] miller
[name_m]Gulliver[/name_m]- Gullivers travels
