Naming number 4

Without realizing it we named our 3 boys names that could be considered surnames, 6 letters long and 2 syllables. With number 4 coming I feel like we should stick to the unintentional theme. But if it happens to be a girl would it be so terrible to break the pattern? If I should keep the pattern going are there any feminine surnames, 6 letters long and 2 syllables that anyone would recommend?

I don’t think it would be bad to break the theme, but if you do want to continue the theme some names that fit the criteria that I think would be cute on a baby girl are:

Some other feminine surname names that aren’t all 6 letters or 2 syllables:

I don’t think so. I find many people have different taste in feminine and masculine names so I think it’d be totally fine to deviate if your fourth is a girl!

That said here are some that do fit the pattern:

It’s not the most feminine but I love [name_u]Jordan[/name_u] and it fits your pattern.

[name_u]Harlow[/name_u] or [name_u]Harper[/name_u]

I sort of love that pattern. I don’t think it’s a terrible thing to break it if your heart is set on a. Ultra feminine girl name either though . Some names you might like could be

[name_f]Alison[/name_f] (3 syllables)
[name_f]Malory[/name_f] ( 3 syllables)
[name_u]Jayden[/name_u] ( [name_u]Jade[/name_u] or [name_f]Jada[/name_f] could be a cute nickname)
[name_u]Ellery[/name_u] (Ellie/ [name_f]Elle[/name_f] could make it lean more feminine)

Other 6 letter girls names that may not be surnames


I think I put everything in correctly! This is a list of feminine names from surnames that are 6 letters and 2 syllables.

This is amazing! Thank you

I think you could break the pattern!

Some other ideas if you stick with it:


You could always create a new pattern and if you had a 5th child, if it was a boy the pattern would follow the boys with 6 letters, 2 syllables and surnames. but if it was a girl it would match the new pattern of number 4.
That way you would have a pattern for the boys and a pattern for the girls. But you could also do as what you suggested do a feminine surname with 6 letters and 2 syllables. (I would probably go with this suggestion myself) that way the kids all feel connected and no one is left out.

[name_m]Can[/name_m] I ask what your boys names are?

I really don’t want anyone to feel left out! Thank you.
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u] [name_m]Ransom[/name_m] [name_m]Bowman[/name_m]

I honestly do not think you have to continue the pattern, whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Most people will probably not notice there even is a pattern. I would definitely sooner stick with a similar style name, and not worry about the length as much.

That said, if you choose to continue the pattern these might work

I adore [name_m]Ransom[/name_m] and [name_m]Bowman[/name_m] as brothers!

I like when unintentional themes happen. You obviously love something very particular! For the boy I would try to stick to the theme for myself, but with a girl you could go either way I think.

I feel like most surnames are unisex, so any could word for either sex.
