N Ending Names

Everyone in our family has an N ending name, including my husband and me. We had decided we wouldn’t be continuing that theme, but my husband has been mentioning Thorin just about any time we talk about names. Finally I told him the problem with Thorin was we’d have to continue the N ending theme and I’d be ok with that if he liked Caspian, but he had expressed dislike for it in the past. He said Thorin and Caspian together a couple of times, then said, “those sound good together”. :person_facepalming: I swear he makes this process so much more difficult. :joy: So now our list is as follows…

Thorin O’Brian Clyde


My husband is Brian.

Caspian Charles Dean
Lachlan Jasper Kade

Magdalen Ruby Kate


We wouldn’t use both Kade and Kate. We only want 3 more kids, so one or the other is likely not to be used.

Imogen Sylva Rose

I seriously love these names. They feel like they actually fit our family, where as the list I had before always seemed slightly out of place.

What N ending girl names would y’all add to my list? Looking for something outside the top 200 at least. My kids’ names are Bent0n Gr0ver, @rwen Eliz@beth and R@ven Az@lea @nn. My husband is Bri@n and I’m C@thryn. Thanks!

[name_m]Thorin[/name_m], [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m], [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] and [name_f]Magdalen[/name_f] are great! [name_f]Glad[/name_f] your husband has come round to [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]!

Some more girls names:

[name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_m]Thorin[/name_m], [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m], [name_f]Imogen[/name_f], [name_f]Magdalen[/name_f] and…

[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] (though repeated initial might not work)
[name_f]Olwen[/name_f] (maybe to close to A though)
[name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] (repeated initial with [name_m]Thorin[/name_m] though)

@AStudyIn_Scarlet @Greyblue [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] is one of my husband’s favorites. He wanted to name R@ven [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] and I wanted to name her [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]. We compromised with R@ven, a name we both somewhat liked. [name_f]My[/name_f] hang up with [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] is that it repeats the WEN from @rwen and [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] rhymes with [name_m]Ben[/name_m] which Bent0n could potentially be called. Plus it ends with a super similar sound to [name_f]Magdalen[/name_f]. I explained all that to my husband and he agreed that [name_f]Magdalen[/name_f] was the better choice of the two. He was totally against [name_f]Magdalen[/name_f] when we were trying to name @rwen over 10 years ago. He’s come around to liking it thank goodness.

You both also mentioned [name_u]Seren[/name_u]. That’s another one I liked for R@ven almost 8 years ago, but he vetoed it. I wonder if I could get him to change his mind on that one too. :grin:

[name_u]Endellion[/name_u] was also on both lists. I want to like this one more than I do. I feel like it fits well. It just seems extra out there to me. And if it’s out there to me I figure he’s unlikely to like it, but he’s surprised me before!

[name_f]Saffron[/name_f] I love pronounced as sa-frin instead of sa-fron and I’ve heard it pronounced both ways in my region. I think she might be correcting people regularly. I’ve considered spelling it differently (Saphryn), but then it’s a misspelled word. :crazy_face:
