Looking for suggestions!

We are looking for a name for our little girl due at the end of [name_u]August[/name_u]. Our older children are [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] & [name_f]Aida[/name_f] and we cannot find a name that we like that fits well with our older children’s names. Ideally her name will be relatively unique but recognizable as well. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Additionally-We like the name [name_f]Prudence[/name_f] nn [name_f]Pru[/name_f] but worry it’s too close to [name_m]Reuben[/name_m]. Thoughts?

Prudence sounds great with your other kids. I’d use it.

There is a bit of overlap with both [name_f]Aida[/name_f] and [name_m]Rueben[/name_m], but in a positive sense, tying the names together.

I have a friend named [name_f]Aida[/name_f], and she has a sister named [name_u]Dana[/name_u] (pronounce Dah-na, with the first A like Father), so that might work.

Reuben, [name_f]Aida[/name_f] and…
[name_u]Nesta[/name_u]
[name_f]Primrose[/name_f]
[name_f]Constance[/name_f] ([name_u]Connie[/name_u]!)

I don’t think [name_f]Prudence[/name_f] is too close to [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] to use. The first name that came to my mind was [name_f]Paloma[/name_f].

Prudence sounds great with [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] and [name_f]Aida[/name_f].

I think that if they were directly one after the other, [name_f]Prudence[/name_f] would be too close to [name_m]Reuben[/name_m], but with [name_f]Aida[/name_f] in between, [name_f]Prudence[/name_f] is great!
