Mary, Lydia, Thomas, and George??

We are trying to select a name for our 4th child (a boy). We always select family names, but as we have abundant family history information that still leaves us with a lot of options. Our first three children are:

[name]Mary[/name] [name]Anna[/name] [name]Augusta[/name] Stinson (nickname Matsy - she never uses [name]Mary[/name])
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] Stinson (officially goes by [name]Lydia[/name] but family and friends sometimes call her Liddy or Lid)
[name]Thomas[/name] [name]Edward[/name] Stinson (officially goes by [name]Thomas[/name] but family and friends sometimes call him [name]Tad[/name])

Currrently our top choice for number 4 is [name]George[/name] [name]Everett[/name] Stinson. However, other possible first name choices include [name]John[/name], [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Philip[/name], [name]Alden[/name] (but my girls hate this one), Teagle (OK, I’m the only one who really likes this one), or [name]Everett[/name] (as a 1st instead of middle name).

So in a nutshell I want to know if [name]Mary[/name], [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], and [name]George[/name] (Or Matsy, Liddy, [name]Tad[/name], and [name]George[/name]) sounds like a harmonious grouping, or if all you name experts have a better idea?

The first thing I thought when I saw you were considering [name]George[/name] [name]Everett[/name] was that [name]Everett[/name] itself would make for a wonderful first name (perhaps with [name]George[/name] as the middle name).

Matsy, Liddy and [name]Tad[/name] are an adorable combination, but I think that each of those names has a little more pizazz to it than [name]George[/name] does.

If not [name]Everett[/name], I think [name]Samuel[/name] is a wonderful name also and goes well with the siblings’ names.

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I agree, I think with your kid’s adorable nicknames, your boy needs a name with a little more personality. I definitely like [name]Everett[/name] or [name]Samuel[/name].
