Names For Future Kids?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! My partner [name_u]Joey[/name_u] and I, in the future, plan on having two sons and possibly a daughter (I want one, he doesn’t). Anyway, we can’t quite narrow down our options to two boy names and one girl name. Here are the options, first then middle name.
[name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_u]Ryan[/name_u]

[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m] (the ai pronounced as “eye” and the s like a z. Like Kyzer)

Bravado [name_m]Jackson[/name_m]

Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m] ([name_u]Lex[/name_u] for nn)

[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u] (sentimental. [name_u]Joey[/name_u]'s stepdad was a [name_m]Scott[/name_m] and died in a work accident when joey was 13. They were very close)

[name_m]Johnathon[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m] ([name_m]John[/name_m] for short. [name_m]Earl[/name_m] was the name of 2 of my grandfathers.)

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] ([name_f]Peggy[/name_f] for short. My great grandmother thought this was her name until she was about 16 and found out her name was…

[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f]

[name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]

[name_f]Alanna[/name_f] [name_u]Rain[/name_u]

[name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Etta[/name_f]

[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f] ([name_f]Betty[/name_f] for short)

So do you think you can help us out?

For boys, I really like [name_u]Porter[/name_u] but I don’t think it flows with [name_u]Ryan[/name_u]. Perhaps [name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m]? My favorites would be [name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m] and Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m]. For girls, it’s a toss-up between [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f] and [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]. I prefer the spelling [name_f]Lila[/name_f], so because of that I pick [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f].

[name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m]
Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m]
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f]

From your boy name options I like [name_m]Scott[/name_m] or [name_m]Paul[/name_m] best for a first name. I like the combos [name_m]Scott[/name_m] Bravado & [name_m]Paul[/name_m] Bravado …lol I like names ending in O
From your girl name options I like really like [name_f]Alanna[/name_f] [name_u]Rain[/name_u], wow :slight_smile:

So I love [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m], because I especially love family names… how special would it be to tell your son “we named you after 2 people who were very very special to me”… I just love it. [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] isn’t my all time favorite first name, but if that is what you like [name_m]Earl[/name_m] with, then go for it.

What about [name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m]??? I think it sound very strong and masculine. I love the name [name_m]Scott[/name_m]… and it would be fun to have two sentimental names to you both. [name_m]Scott[/name_m] also isn’t super popular right now.

As far as your girl’s names, i totally see where you are going. I love classic names… but I think the whole nicknaming process you are going for is a little outdated (there are no P’s in [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]… it just seems confusing to me). I really really do like all of your choices, just not quite to say that i like the first name/middle name combos. I love the name [name_f]Luella[/name_f] ([name_f]Lu[/name_f] sounds like such a cute nn to me), [name_f]Etta[/name_f], and [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] the best :slight_smile:

[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u]
[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m]

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u]
[name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Alana[/name_f] [name_u]Rain[/name_u]

I * my number 1 choices

*[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u]
[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m]

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u]
*[name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Alana[/name_f] [name_u]Rain[/name_u]

My fave combos from yours are Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m] and [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Etta[/name_f], but I’d love for a boy:
Lexington [name_m]Scott[/name_m]
[name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m]
[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m]
Lexington [name_m]Earl[/name_m]

Since you plan on having 2 boys, I’d choose Lexington [name_m]Earl[/name_m] and [name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m], two strong, handsome names.

For a girl, I’d prefer:
[name_f]Etta[/name_f] [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Luella[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f]
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]

My fave is [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], I find it adorable. [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Juno[/name_f] would make a lovely name too.

Lexington [name_m]Earl[/name_m], [name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]; [name_u]Lex[/name_u], [name_m]Port[/name_m] and [name_f]Addie[/name_f] for short.

[name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_u]Ryan[/name_u] - I’d switch it up, [name_u]Ryan[/name_u] [name_u]Porter[/name_u] flows better.
[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m] - I like this.
Bravado [name_m]Jackson[/name_m] - [name_m]Jackson[/name_m] Bravado flows better.
Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m] - This is good.
[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u] - Good.
[name_m]Johnathon[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m] - Good.

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] - [name_f]Peggy[/name_f] isn’t my favorite nn for [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], I much prefer [name_f]Meg[/name_f] or [name_f]Maggie[/name_f]. Not a fan of [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] for a girl, [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] or [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] would be pretty.
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f] - Flows well.
[name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] - Cute!
[name_f]Alanna[/name_f] [name_u]Rain[/name_u] - Sounds like A Lot Of [name_u]Rain[/name_u]. :confused:
[name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Etta[/name_f] - [name_f]Etta[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f] flows better.
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f] - Works.

My favorites:
[name_u]Ryan[/name_u] [name_u]Porter[/name_u], [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m], and [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_m]Jackson[/name_m] Bravado, Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m], [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f] = [name_m]Jack[/name_m], [name_u]Lex[/name_u], and [name_f]Betty[/name_f]
[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u], [name_m]Johnathan[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m], & [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] = [name_m]Scott[/name_m], [name_m]John[/name_m], and [name_f]Maggie[/name_f]

Out of your options, I like…

Lexington [name_m]Paul[/name_m]
[name_m]Johnathon[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f]

I also like the combo [name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u], but think [name_u]Francis[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m] sounds better.

PS. Great nicknames for the girls!

I love [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m] (it flows really well for some reason) and [name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u]. Both two very classic names that you don’t hear a lot of but not so much that they’ll be teased.

I love, love, love [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]. That was always my top name for a girl when I was a kid. [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] is gorgeous as well, though I hear its becoming quite popular.

I like:

[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m]
[name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u]
[name_m]Johnathon[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m] (not big on [name_m]Johnathon[/name_m], but the family connection is important)

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] (I do like [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f] & [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] a tad better)
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Luella[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f]

I agree that [name_u]Francis[/name_u] [name_m]Scott[/name_m] sounds better. Now I knew it sounded familiar and had to look it up, it’s the author of the US’s national anthem. I doubt it would be a problem, but just something to be aware of if you do use that combo.

I like [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Kaiser[/name_m] & [name_m]Johnathon[/name_m] [name_m]Earl[/name_m] the best, followed by [name_m]Scott[/name_m] [name_u]Francis[/name_u]

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] & [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Maude[/name_f] are both beautiful.

It’s lovely you’re thinking of this, though I know quite a few people who had their hearts set on a certain gender and never got one!
