I have 2 boys - [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]. I’m expecting a 3rd baby (don’t know the sex yet), so need suggestions for both girl and boy names.

For a boy, I’m looking for something like [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]. [name]August[/name] is sometimes called [name]Gus[/name], rarely b/c I prefer [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name] usually just goes by [name]Dash[/name] so I want a boy’s name that has a cute short form that is not [name]Will[/name] or [name]Jake[/name], anything too common.

For a girl, I’m open. Thanks.

I love your boys’ names. They are awesome.

[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Hudson[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Silas[/name] (nn [name]Sy[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Dexter[/name] (nn [name]Dex[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Bennett[/name] (nn [name]Benno[/name], or [name]Ben[/name], is that too common?)
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Declan[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Decker[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Ryland[/name] (nn [name]Ry[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Oliver[/name] (nn [name]Ollie[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Phineas[/name] or [name]Finnian[/name] (nn [name]Finn[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Sullivan[/name] (nn [name]Sully[/name])
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Thaddeus[/name] (nn [name]Thad[/name])

For girls . . .

[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Antonia[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Phoebe[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Ella[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Georgia[/name]
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], & [name]Scarlett[/name]

Good luck! I’m also expecting my 3rd child -a girl- any day now.

A member of this site, [name]Lyndsay[/name], was deciding between [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name] (love both)for her son, so I had to smile when I saw your sons’ names. That’s pretty weird! :slight_smile:

[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], and:


[name]Genevieve[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name])
[name]Penelope[/name] (nn [name]Poppy[/name], [name]Nell[/name])

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Harvery - Harv
[name]Julius[/name] - [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Kenneth[/name] - [name]Ken[/name]
[name]Lionel[/name] - [name]Leo[/name], but [name]Leo[/name] is probably too popular for you.
[name]Louie[/name] - [name]Lou[/name]
[name]Malcolm[/name] - [name]Mac[/name]
[name]Peter[/name] - [name]Pete[/name]
[name]Raphael[/name] - [name]Rafe[/name]

I just gotta say, these are gorgeous lists! I love the suggestion of hollis, very unusual

[name]Theodore[/name] - [name]Theo[/name], [name]Teddy[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] / [name]Jesper[/name]
[name]Sebastian[/name] - [name]Seb[/name], [name]Bastian[/name]
[name]Aquila[/name] - Quil, [name]Quilla[/name]
Alysande - [name]Alex[/name], [name]Andy[/name]?
[name]Collier[/name] - Col
[name]Curtis[/name] - [name]Curt[/name]/y
[name]Soren[/name] / [name]Stellan[/name]

[name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Cora[/name]
[name]Willow[/name] / [name]Willa[/name]
[name]Clarice[/name] nn [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] nn [name]Addie[/name]

Also thought of [name]Sergio[/name] nn [name]Serge[/name] and [name]Maxine[/name] for a girl. There is a [name]Maxine[/name] at my daughter’s hipster school. She is very cool and pulls it off.

I love the name [name]Genevieve[/name], with the nn [name]Eve[/name] or [name]Evie[/name]. So cute. I also like the nn [name]Viv[/name]. [name]Do[/name] you think [name]Viv[/name] could be used as a nn for [name]Genevieve[/name]?

Olivekit, I love your girls’ names and I loved a lot of the names on your list. [name]Sullivan[/name], [name]Bennett[/name], [name]Silas[/name], [name]Finnian[/name] are my favorites. I like [name]Hudson[/name] too. Thanks!

I love the name [name]Genevieve[/name], too, and adore the [name]Eve[/name]/[name]Evie[/name] nickname potential. I definitely think [name]Viv[/name] could work as a Genenevieve nickname! I’ve heard [name]Vivi[/name] before, so why not simply the elegant [name]Viv[/name]?

(I just love your boys’ names!) :slight_smile:

Good luck!

Okay, we’ve agreed on [name]Genevieve[/name] as her first name - still debating between nicknames [name]Evie[/name] and [name]Vivi[/name]. Any middle name suggestions for [name]Genevieve[/name]?

Also, which name for a boy do you like better with [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]? Any better suggestions?


We also love [name]Emerson[/name], but worry about it going to the girls. WDYT?

[name]Bennett[/name]: I think it’s so handsome!
[name]Silas[/name]: I can personally better see the last two names with [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]
[name]Finnian[/name]: I love this with your boys’ names!
[name]Sebastian[/name]: This one, too! :slight_smile:

I think [name]Emerson[/name] is a great name, too, but like you, I think it’s gone to the girls (or at least is used on many). If this bothers you, you may want to go with one of your other names.

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Camille[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Simone[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

Congrats! I will jump in here…

[name]Bennett[/name]: nn would be [name]Ben[/name]. Very handsome if [name]Ben[/name] is not too mainstream for you!
[name]Silas[/name]: for me doesn’t fit as well with [name]Gus[/name] and [name]Dash[/name].
[name]Finnian[/name]: [name]Finn[/name] is GREAT with [name]Gus[/name] and [name]Dash[/name]!!
[name]Sebastian[/name]: I love [name]Sebastian[/name] and carry it on my list as well… But I love it in its ful form and am not personally crazy abour [name]Seb[/name] or [name]Bastian[/name] (I worry about “Bastard” teasing with [name]Bastian[/name])

If you like [name]Emerson[/name], what about [name]Olive[/name]'s suggestion of [name]Everett[/name] nn [name]Rhett[/name] or Rett?

My faves for Middles from Jills list are:
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] (great one [name]Jill[/name]!)
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Claire[/name] (also beautiful)

A couple more to add:
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Dale[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Harper[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Kay[/name]

I didn’t word the above post very well. I meant [name]Sergio[/name] for a boy and [name]Maxine[/name] for a girl.
Also I didn’t say before that I love the names [name]Finn[/name] and [name]Sebastian[/name]! [name]Love[/name] [name]Finnian[/name] and [name]Phineas[/name], too!

[name]Bennett[/name]: Sounds great with [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]!
[name]Silas[/name]: I actually think this one works as well.
[name]Finnian[/name]: not seeing it with the others…
[name]Sebastian[/name]: This one works the best, I think.

For girls’ middle names, I like [name]Camille[/name], [name]Simone[/name], [name]Grace[/name], and [name]Scarlett[/name].

[name]Charles[/name] [name]Benedict[/name]

[name]Bede[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]

[name]Asher[/name] [name]Joel[/name]

[name]Jemima[/name] [name]Jane[/name] nn [name]Mimi[/name], [name]Mia[/name], [name]Jemma[/name]

[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Mary[/name]

[name]Oliver[/name] ([name]Ollie[/name])

hope some of these inspire you!

finnian is so grest with [name]Dashiell[/name] and [name]August[/name] and [name]Finn[/name] goes is perfect with [name]Dash[/name] and [name]Gus[/name]! I do love [name]Silas[/name]!

[name]Genevieve[/name] is beautiful, and all of the nicknames are lovely!

[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] - I think this goes the least well.
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name] and [name]Silas[/name] - this goes brilliantly with [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name].
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name] and [name]Finnian[/name] - also goes nicely, and I love this name.
[name]August[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name] and [name]Sebastian[/name] - again, very nice.

I’m afraid [name]Emerson[/name] probably will go to the girls … (although, I don’t understand why. It has ‘son’ in it!)

Good luck!
