Names like...

I’m looking to refresh my list a bit, so I want to know what names you think are similar to some of these.



Any suggestions are much appreciated :slight_smile:

For girls, [name]Blair[/name]!
For boys, [name]Leo[/name]!

I love your lists!


Cleome (prn. Clee-OH-me or I think also Clee-OH-may) – kind of like a mix of [name]Clio[/name] and [name]Esme[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Althea[/name] (similarities with [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Thea[/name])

[name]Hope[/name] those help!

So many great suggestions. Thank you, guys! I listed a lot of the ones I really like. Some have been on my lists before, but a lot are new considerations for me. I think you just need fresh eyes once in a while. Also, some of the names I didn’t list I do love, but couldn’t use for various reasons. The most popular one of course is that someone else close to me used it first. Also, if it was listed by more than one person, I included the first one I came to in an attempt to consolidate. An attempt … :).

mamarachof6 – I really like both suggestions, [name]Leo[/name] in particular.



[name]Gable[/name] – I know my DH would hate this, but I still really love it.
Cleome – I find this incredibly interesting. I don’t hate it, so I can see myself warming up to it really quickly. Like you said, it has elements of some of my favorite names.
[name]Althea[/name] – I really love anything that can also be shortened to [name]Thea[/name]. Good call!
[name]Waverly[/name] – Super love this one.
[name]Adelaide[/name] – I’m on the fence because a friend who lost a pregnancy intended to use this for the child. It was an early loss, but she felt it was a little girl and that would have been her name.


[name]Graeme[/name] – I do like this spelling as well. It could go either way for me.
[name]Jude[/name] – Good suggestion ” It just beat out [name]Asher[/name] for our first son.
[name]Cecelia[/name]/[name]Cecilia[/name]/[name]Celia[/name] – This is one of my on again, off again favorites.
[name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Eleanora[/name] – This is my favorite longer name with [name]Nora[/name] in it.
[name]Rosie[/name] – If I use a [name]Rose[/name]- name, this would likely be what I call her.
[name]Catherine[/name] – I love the understated elegance of a little girl [name]Catherine[/name]. Not [name]Cat[/name]. Not [name]Cate[/name]. Not [name]Catie[/name]. [name]Just[/name] [name]Catherine[/name].


[name]Elias[/name] – I adore this name.
[name]Casper[/name] – This name is growing on me, a lot!
[name]Anson[/name] – I dig this choice.
[name]Ione[/name] – I really love this name. Very pretty!
[name]Theodora[/name] – I waffle back and forth whether I’d rather have a boy [name]Theodore[/name] or a girl [name]Theodora[/name]. I’m not sure I could convince my DH to use it, but I wouldn’t be opposed to really trying :slight_smile:
[name]Alena[/name] / [name]Alina[/name]
[name]Amity[/name] – I really like this. I also like [name]Verity[/name].
[name]Lenore[/name] / [name]Lenora[/name] – I like that it’s a streamline of [name]Eleanor[/name]/[name]Eleanora[/name], which I love.
[name]Aster[/name] / Astor
[name]Viola[/name] – I adore the [name]Shakespeare[/name] connection here.

Thank you again! I have a lot of new and back again names to think about.
