[name_f]My[/name_f] best friend is expecting baby #2. She is so unsure about names and her partner doesn’t care, so she’s basically told me to pick for her.
She already has one two-year-old daughter named Lili’0na R0se - named after her grandmother, [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f].
[name_u]Baby[/name_u] is due in [name_u]August[/name_u], so we don’t know the gender yet.
We’re looking for a name that goes well with Lili’ona, but isn’t the exact same style.
For boys, she likes:
[name_m]Mateo[/name_m] (her fav)
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] (my suggestion, she really likes this one as it does partially honour her brother)
For girls, she likes:
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] (her fav - but this is my name, so we’re not sure on it)
[name_u]Aspen[/name_u] (this is off the table due to a bad association, but she still likes it)
She’s really hoping it’s a boy, because [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] is the only name that truly feels right so far. We quite like [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_u]Luca[/name_u] or [name_u]Luca[/name_u] [name_m]Mateo[/name_m]
Her brother passed away a week ago, so we are thinking that a name to honour him could be nice. His name is Clar3nce R0bert - which she thinks is “terribly outdated”, so perhaps a name with similar meanings?
She has British and Arabic heritage, so something that honours either of those heritages could also work.
Thank you all in advance!
