Name Discussions with My Brother: We don’t agree on anything!

Today we discussed some names with my brother, @sasha_flynn . Guess what - there isn’t any name we both love! I love old and long names, he likes uncommon fantasy names.

Few ones we can semi-agree on:
[name_f]Eudora[/name_f] (I’m not sure)
[name_f]Estella[/name_f] (He’s not sure)
[name_f]Calliope[/name_f] (I’m not sure)
[name_f]Dorothea[/name_f] (He’s not sure)
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] (I’m not sure)
[name_u]Laurie[/name_u] (He’s not sure)
[name_u]Zephyr[/name_u] (I’m not sure)
[name_m]Augustus[/name_m] (He’s not sure)

Any suggestions for us?

(We discuss names just for fun)

You know, I’m a little jealous right now. I wish my sisters loved to talk about names! [name_m]Even[/name_m] if we had extremely different tastes, I’d still love to have people to talk names with in person. You are very lucky to have another name nerd in your family. :wink:

Let’s see…what would I suggest to bridge the gap between your styles?

It’s so cool that you talk about names together! Lol, my family used to think I was so weird although now they’re more neutral overall. Aghhh, old and long names and uncommon fantasy names are such great categories and fortunately it is entirely possible for them to overlap! I’m not sure any of the following names fall into both categories (sorry for any repeats!) but I’ll give it a shot.

Zephyrine - you don’t love [name_u]Zephyr[/name_u] but this is a longer, feminine version of the name that feels very fantasy to me while possibly falling into your category of feeling older?

Gwyneira - okay this is just fantasy but I wanted to list it.

Winifred - old fashioned vintage name that has a definite fantasy vibe imo

Theodora - old fashioned but would totally fit a fantasy heroine.

Nimue - falls into the fantasy side but has a really cool sound.

Leonora, [name_f]Leonara[/name_f], [name_f]Lionora[/name_f], [name_f]Lionore[/name_f], [name_f]Leanora[/name_f], [name_f]Lenore[/name_f], [name_f]Lenora[/name_f], etc - maybe one of these spellings bridges the gap because soundwise it fits into both camps.

Philippa - again I think soundwise it falls into both camps and while it does lean more towards your preference this does have a very fantasy vibe, I think, and nickname [name_f]Pippa[/name_f] adds to both vintage and fantasy charm.

Georgiana - see [name_f]Philippa[/name_f] minus the nickname.

Wilhelmina - another vintage but fantasy tinged name.

Mirabel, [name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f], [name_f]Mirabella[/name_f] - totally fits both vibes.

Margareta - magical feeling variation of a timeless name.

Maerwynn - much more fantasy but nickname [name_f]Mae[/name_f] gives it a nudge in the direction you prefer.

Endellion - again more fantasy but could have vintage sounding nicknames like [name_f]Della[/name_f], [name_f]Dilly[/name_f], etc

I love so many of the ones you suggested! What about [name_f]Estrella[/name_f] instead of [name_f]Estella[/name_f], [name_f]Cassiopeia[/name_f] like [name_f]Calliope[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u] like [name_m]Evander[/name_m], and [name_u]Laurence[/name_u] as a full for [name_u]Laurie[/name_u] (obviously you probably already intended that)?

Ok first of all I think it’s absolutely lovely that you and your brother share a common interest! What a gift that is, I can hardly convince my husband to talk names with me and even then I have to have a reason. So I think that’s just brilliant so honestly I can see why you might want to find some common names BUT this is a good thing!!!
When you have your own little children… You won’t be fighting over names!
I know often that siblings tell each other ok this is my list don’t use these or I call this name and so on.
I’ll think on list though…
