Name Themes??

So hubby and I went to the doctor’s yesterday and found out that we are expecting triplets! I am a bit nervous but I am starting to look past it and am becoming more excited (after all- it means more babies to love!)

Me and hubby have decided we want a name theme (ONLY for the middle names) but we can only think of themes that have more girl name options than boys…

Here are the themes we have thought of already:

[name]Jewel[/name] Names
[name]Virtue[/name] Names
[name]Flower[/name] Names
Place Names
Mythology Names
Bible Names (This is the one that has the most boy options but I don’t find it creative enough for us)

Can you think of any other themes that maybe have a bit more options for both boys and girls?? Thanks! :slight_smile:

I think virtue names work for boys:
[name]Loyal[/name], [name]Reason[/name]

For nature I have:
[name]Crane[/name], [name]Bay[/name]

I think Color names or versions of them would be cool ([name]Redmond[/name], [name]Indigo[/name])
Place names ([name]Juneau[/name], [name]Roman[/name])
Tree names are very usable ([name]Ash[/name], [name]Beech[/name], [name]Pine[/name])

The place, word and nature names section of nameberry lists has awesome suggestions For the ones I listed and more

I love the name these for middles!

[name]One[/name] of my favourite themes is for girls though, -tte names.
So [name]Antoinette[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Juliette[/name], [name]Odette[/name] etc.
But that won’t work for boys so.

I know a family of multiples who gave all theirs their fathers name as the middle, even the girls. It was [name]Ali[/name] so it worked out fine.

I like the idea of doing names that mean “Gift of God” IF you’re religious.

Congratulations…

I think if you look further into any of those ‘themes’ you will find something for boys and girls… Sometimes it is the meaning of the name, rather then the name itself that makes it fit the ‘theme’

You could go with a more general nature name… instead of specifically going with flowers, trees, or birds, just go with nature in general.

Wow lots of nice suggestions :slight_smile: and @firsttime- We will be learning what we are having but it’s a bit too early to tell (in a few weeks maybe) :slight_smile: right now all we can do is guess (hubby is betting that they are all boys- I am betting 2 girls and a boy) :slight_smile:

Hubby and I really like the nature and animal/bird names :slight_smile:

You could go for a more subtle theme for boys… like including a letter.

Example - [name]Sawyer[/name], [name]Dylan[/name] and [name]Riley[/name]. All using the letter Y.

@oddcreature- That sounds good too :slight_smile: Thanks

You could go with more specific like river names: [name]Hudson[/name], [name]Thames[/name], [name]Brooke[/name], Odet, [name]River[/name], [name]Platte[/name]. Or you could really just keep it nature like: [name]Sky[/name], [name]Rain[/name], Mudd, [name]Ash[/name], [name]Oak[/name], [name]Willow[/name], [name]Rock[/name], [name]Blossom[/name].

Some boys names for the themes you mentioned:

@ferntailwp

Wow thank you so much!! :slight_smile:

I think if they’re all boys, animal names in the middle would be pretty cool. [name]Hawk[/name], [name]Fox[/name], and [name]Wolf[/name] would be awesome!

Wow! Congratulations! And good luck :wink: What a wonderful blessing! I love the idea of themed names for middle names. I love nature names for boys, but they are much harder to get away with (especially with my husband :wink:
My favorite boy/unisex nature names:
[name]Hawk[/name]
[name]Sage[/name]- I actually want to use this for a girl, but I love that it can go both ways.
[name]Cedar[/name]
[name]Cypress[/name]
[name]Birch[/name]
[name]Ash[/name]
[name]Flint[/name]
Buteo (genus name for a large group of hawks)
[name]Hart[/name]
[name]Peregrine[/name]
Kestrel
[name]Falcon[/name]
[name]Locke[/name]
[name]Canyon[/name]
[name]Phelan[/name]- means wolf
[name]Numair[/name]- means panther
[name]Copper[/name]
Ok, that’s all I can come up with for now. Another name theme idea is names from literature. You could take all the names from one book, or just choose good characters from three different books. It may be a bit less obvious as a theme, but it could carry a lot of meaning.

I think book characters would be fun. There are so many amazing names found in famous literature, especially if the book means something to you personally. Many of my favorite names are from books, and I like them twice as much because of the character attached to them.

Thanks to all of you! :slight_smile: Such great ideas! I [name]LOVE[/name] the book characters idea (I love reading) the only problem is I’m a fan of a lot of the famous (and very obvious) books like the Hunger Games, Twilight, etc (I’m still a teenager at heart :slight_smile: )
