Middle name agreed but no first name!

I have nine days before I’m having a c-section and we’ve made little progress.

We’ve agreed that if it’s a boy (we don’t know the sex) it will have our fathers names: [name]Peter[/name] and [name]Alexander[/name] as middle names. But we are stuck on a first name.

We have a daughter called [name]Anoushka[/name], after my Jewish Russian grandmother. So this next child needs to have quite an unusual name too, even if its middle names are quite traditional.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Some of the names I’ve suggested so far which have been rejected include: [name]Gabriel[/name], [name]Isaac[/name], [name]Emmanuel[/name] and [name]Felix[/name].

The first (and only) one that came to mind (because I’m terrible at thinking up names) is: [name]Maksim[/name] (mack-SEEM), which I love and would fit very well with the lovely [name]Anoushka[/name]. Or you could go with [name]Maximo[/name] if you wanted a different sound. I think either of those names would be a great fit for you.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Roman[/name] [name]Peter[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]? I also agree with pp and [name]Maksim[/name].

[name]Maxim[/name] would be very cool.

I quite like [name]Sergius[/name] / [name]Sergio[/name] / [name]Sergei[/name].


[name]Miran[/name] (means ‘peace’)

Ooh, [name]Anoushka[/name] I like. My great grandmother’s name. I’m part russian jewish too!

Since [name]Anoushka[/name] is so russian, I chose some russian names for you:


A few suggestions: Hebrew/Russian


I like the suggestion of [name]Maksim[/name] / [name]Maxim[/name], and love the idea of [name]Maksim[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] [name]Peter[/name].

2nd pp’s suggestions of [name]Maxim[/name] and [name]Casimir[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are incredibly handsome.
