Naming our third: Which would you choose?

Hello, everyone :slight_smile:

After quite a while, we are in need of some more advice and opinions!

#3 (a boy) is due next month, but we are still so torn on his name. We’ve narrowed it down to 5 first and 4 middles.
[name_u]Lane[/name_u], [name_u]Reid[/name_u], [name_u]Gray[/name_u], [name_m]Silas[/name_m] & [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] as firsts and [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_m]Edward[/name_m] & [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] as middle name options.

Which of our first name options do you like best and which middle of our list would you pair with it?

Our daughters are named [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f].

[name_u]Love[/name_u] your daughters names! [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] definitely definitely definitely as a first!! And it works really well with all your middles.

Personally, I think [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] is fabulous!

In order that are my preferences…

[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
[name_u]Reid[/name_u]

I would choose the middle that has the most meaning to you as they all work!

A really lovely list of names. [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] is my personal favorite but I think [name_m]Silas[/name_m] works the best with sisters names.

My 2nd post on Nameberry.

I would have to choose [name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]. (I do still love the names we chose for our son:)

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]

I like [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m] and [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]. [name_m]Silas[/name_m] is my favorite and has a nature meaning which I love. I adore your daughters names btw.

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] (adore), [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f], and:

[name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]

I think that [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] would go well with your daughters names (and keep with the vowel names), but my absolute favourite is [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m].

[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]
[name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] are so classy I like [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] best with them.

[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] would be my top pick.

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] I also think is a nice fit.

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] or [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]

With [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f], I would keep something as musically sweet as his sisters. The flow on them both is perfect and they’re beautiful to say and look at, with the names being very delicate and airy. Because of this, I’d definitely put [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] as the front runner first name wise. [name_f]Anna[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] have the same feel, a few shared sounds without being too much. My favourite [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] combo has to be [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]. I really like the sound of [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]. Good luck!

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] are my favourite first names by a mile, especially considering your daughters’ lovely simple, classic names.

My favourite combos with these two are [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m] or [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]. I love [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] so much but I’m not sure it flows too well with either of these firsts.

With [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] (WOW to both of these, by the way), I’d choose [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]. It has the same simple, classic-yet-magnificent feel as your daughters’ names.

I love [name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] too. Your daughters have beautiful names!

Brother to [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]:

I would go with [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] or [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]!

[name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], or [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]. Great options!

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] are gorgeous names! For their brother, I would suggest:

[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_u]Lane[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Edward[/name_m]
[name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]

I like [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] and [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] the best with [name_f]Anna[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f]. Good luck! :slight_smile:

I really like [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] and [name_u]Reid[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], with your daughters names.
