Need sibling names for Fiona

We are expecting another baby in [name]March[/name], and we already used our favorite name! We have a 3.5 year old [name]Fiona[/name]. We chose it because it reflects our Irish heritage (well, it’s actually Scottish, but that’s ok) and goes well with our Italian-sounding last name (ends in “o”). I need some suggestions for a sibling that meets the same criteria!

Some names we’re already thinking of:


Any ideas? Thanks!

[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Clare[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Hannah[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Georgia[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Eliza[/name]

[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Colin[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Cole[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Owen[/name]

[name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name] sound fabulous together! I love [name]Cormac[/name] and excited to see it on your list. I am not a huge fan of [name]Duncan[/name] but I can see it’s appeal. [name]Duncan[/name] alternatives: [name]Declan[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], [name]Deacon[/name].



They are not all Irish or Scottish. I * the ones I really enjoy. To be honest [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Cormac[/name] are so great though! Good luck.

I second [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Cormac[/name]. I just love, love, love [name]Maeve[/name] and think [name]Fiona[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] make a perfect sib set!

Other ideas:

[name]Elspeth[/name] - love with [name]Fiona[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] - see [name]Rosemary[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] - see [name]Rosemary[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] - not a Gaelic name, but I love it with [name]Fiona[/name]
Of all of the above, I would pick [name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Corrie[/name], [name]Dilly[/name], or [name]Cora[/name] and use [name]Maeve[/name] as a middle name.

[name]Archer[/name] nn [name]Archie[/name]
To go with [name]Fiona[/name], I would pick [name]Cormac[/name] or [name]Chester[/name]

lovely names! I am fond of [name]Alastair[/name], a [name]Scot[/name] name with nn [name]Alec[/name]
and I adored the [name]Luciana[/name] [name]Kate[/name] suggestion!

[name]Maeve[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] this name, and think it’s wonderful with [name]Fiona[/name]!
[name]Tess[/name]: Ditto, but to me, [name]Maeve[/name] works better with [name]Fiona[/name]‘s feel.
[name]Cara[/name]: I’m not personally a fan of [name]Cara[/name], but I love [name]Cora[/name], [name]Clara[/name], and [name]Caroline[/name]…
[name]Cormac[/name]: I think [name]Cormac[/name] is very cool…
[name]Duncan[/name]: I’ve been trying to like [name]Duncan[/name] lately, but Dunkin’ Donuts is getting in the way for me. (I love [name]Elizabeth[/name]'s Delcan suggestion!) :slight_smile:

[name]Elspeth[/name] (I think [name]Susan[/name] suggested this…)


Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

[name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Cormac[/name], definitely! I also like [name]Tessa[/name] rather than [name]Tess[/name]

ok… this is kind of creepy…

my great-uncle remarried after my aunt (she was my relative) died. long story, but anyway, we’re still really close to him. but here is the creepy part…

His step-son is named [name]Cormac[/name]. [name]Cormac[/name] has three children, two girls and one boy. The oldest girl is [name]Fiona[/name]. The youngest? [name]Maeve[/name]. Their son is [name]Ian[/name] (should you ever need another boys name)

When I came across this post I got the heebie-jeebies! Haha, anyway, [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Cormac[/name], [name]Declan[/name], [name]Lachlan[/name], [name]Leyton[/name], and [name]Kelan[/name] for boys. Girls: [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Carys[/name], [name]Brynn[/name]

Good luck, will you keep us posted, please?!

[name]Maeve[/name] - very pretty and goes nicely with [name]Fiona[/name].
[name]Tess[/name] - I adore, although I prefer it as a nn for something. Contessa nn [name]Tess[/name] would go very well with an Italian-sounding surname.
[name]Cara[/name] - lovely.
[name]Cormac[/name] - I absolutely adore.
[name]Duncan[/name] - quite nice.

Also, how about :
Girls :
[name]Seren[/name] - Welsh
[name]Caoimhe[/name] (kee-va) - Irish
[name]Saoirse[/name] (seer-sha) - Irish
[name]Siobhan[/name] (shi-vawn) - Irish
[name]Nuala[/name] (noo-la) - Irish - perhaps too close to [name]Fiona[/name]?
[name]Niamh[/name]/[name]Neve[/name] (neve) - Irish
[name]Orfhlaith[/name]/[name]Orla[/name] (orla) - Irish
[name]Isolde[/name] (is-old-uh) - Irish (nn [name]Izzy[/name])
[name]Flora[/name] is lovely, but probably too matchy-matchy with [name]Fiona[/name].

[name]Seamus[/name] - Irish
[name]Lorcan[/name] - Irish
Caoimhin (keevin)/[name]Kevin[/name] - Irish
[name]Finnian[/name] - Irish
[name]Tara[/name] - Irish.

[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Tessa[/name]

[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Duncan[/name]

Of the names you suggested, I prefer:
[name]MAEVE[/name] (have to echo all previous posters on this. It’s such a cute name, and goes well with [name]FIONA[/name])

Other suggestions for boys:
Of the previous posters’ ideas I like [name]EAMON[/name], [name]RAFFERTY[/name], [name]FINNIAN[/name] (yes, a bit matchy with [name]Fiona[/name], but so cute, too!).

Another suggestion for a girl:
[name]EILIDH[/name] (pronounced “EYE-lee”)

I love the combos of [name]Fiona[/name] and [name]Colin[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name] and [name]Carys[/name].

I also really like Dechlan, [name]Lachlan[/name], [name]Leyton[/name] and [name]Kellan[/name]. [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Neve[/name] are also lovely choices. [name]Fiona[/name] is a beautiful name! Congratulations! :slight_smile:

[name]Fiona[/name] & [name]Tessa[/name]
