~ needing help? come here:)

Hi berries! I’ve recently had hard times with figuring out answers to problems I have with sibsets, name combos, nicknames etc and I didn’t ever want to crowd a thread that wasn’t specifically for that thing. Multiple times I would just keep the problem to myself either forgetting about it and/or letting it resolve on its own. However, I realized that I shouldn’t be doing that and should just use Nameberry as it’s intended. That being said, I don’t want to continue making new threads asking for opinions.
So, I figured I’d make a thread specifically for stuff like this. If you need any help what-so-ever but don’t want to make a new thread, use this! You can ask about which combos flow better, if it’s a good sibling set, what spelling is best etc!
I’ll go first!
So, I’ve recently been in love with the sibset Daphne Fleur Eleanor, Hyacinth Clover Elain, Ianthe Plum Eloise, Caspian Felix Edward & Evander Blythe Theodore. However, it really bugs me that Evander would then be the only one who’s second middle name doesn’t start with an E. But, I don’t like any name I’ve come across with it and I really don’t want another E name to be paired with Evander. Is that overboard and am I worrying too much or is that normal? Would Blythe Theodore Evander fit in well?
ETA - Blythe is for a boy!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! First off I want to say this is a great idea and I love your naming style!

I think [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] sounds wonderful actually. Some other ideas might be…

[name_m]Alistair[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_m]Lucian[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_m]Apollo[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_u]Lennox[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_u]Zephyr[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps!

Ooohhh! Thank you so much.

[name_m]Alistair[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] - Somehow I always forget that the name [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] exists even though it’s literally been on my list since like 2019. [name_u]Love[/name_u] this!
[name_m]Lucian[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] - Once again, never a name I remember even though I love it!
[name_m]Apollo[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] - Cute! [name_m]Apollo[/name_m] is on my list as well.
[name_u]Lennox[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] - Cute however, I don’t like [name_u]Lennox[/name_u] that much.
[name_u]Zephyr[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] - [name_u]Love[/name_u] this as well.

You pretty much hit this out of the park, [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] and [name_m]Lucian[/name_m] are my favorites but I think [name_m]Alistair[/name_m] wins by just a notch. Thank you for the suggestions. It did help lots :]

Name for an OC!
So I got the idea for this book yesterday (quick turn around lol, its a fanfic) and was wanting some help naming the OC.

Details:

  • She is Korean-American. Her Mom is Korean and OC is first-gen.
  • She is twenty-four.
  • She has a twitch stream where she plays video games. It has quite the following.
  • She goes to school still. She studied psychology for two years and was on the track for graduation until she realized that was not what she wanted to do. Now, she is getting a degree in creative writing and business. She only has school two-three days out of the week.

Requirements:

  • The name has to be easy to spell/type.
  • I would love for it to have a Korean alternative. Whether it is just a similar sounding name or a direct translation.
  • Preferably lower than top 300.
  • At least one or two direct nicknames.
  • I would like for it to be feminine.
  • Can’t feel too modern (like [name_f]Zenobia[/name_f] etc) but, I don’t want it to be a '90s name like [name_f]Michelle[/name_f], [name_f]Jessica[/name_f] or [name_u]Ashley[/name_u].

Other OCs I’ve named:

  • [name_u]Dove[/name_u] [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] [name_m]Hobbs[/name_m].
  • [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] Dowers.
  • [name_u]Lennon[/name_u] [name_u]Angel[/name_u].
  • [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] Lestrange.
  • [name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_u]Sterling[/name_u] (NN Trin.)
  • [name_u]Parker[/name_u] [name_u]Blue[/name_u] Nickson.
  • [name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] [name_u]Reid[/name_u].
  • [name_u]Raven[/name_u] [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] Coates.
  • Seon Soo-im.
  • [name_m]Kwan[/name_m] [name_f]Sayuri[/name_f].
  • [name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_f]Jinae[/name_f] (NN Nae.)
  • [name_u]Kim[/name_u] Sooyun.
  • Choi Deiji (NN Daisy.)
  • [name_u]Maven[/name_u] Archeron.
  • [name_f]Astra[/name_f] [name_m]Flores[/name_m].

I hope this helps! If you need anymore information just tell me. Thanks!

I’m trying to come up with a [name_f]Vaila[/name_f] combo, can anyone give their thoughts on which (if any!) sound best so far? [name_f]My[/name_f] brain has gone a bit fuzzy… Any other suggestions for [name_f]Vaila[/name_f] are welcome!

[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Selene[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Marsaili[/name_f]
[name_f]Ingrid[/name_f] [name_f]Vaila[/name_f]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_f]Vaila[/name_f]

Also, unrelated but which sounds better - [name_m]Otto[/name_m] [name_m]Silvan[/name_m] or [name_m]Silvan[/name_m] [name_m]Otto[/name_m]?

I prefer [name_f]Vaila[/name_f] in the first spot.
[name_f]My[/name_f] favorite from your list is [name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]. I sensed a very celestial theme with the names almost so, I used some other names like it.

[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_u]Nyx[/name_u]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Lo[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Callisto[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Ianthe[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Moon[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Thebe[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Elpis[/name_f]
[name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Circe[/name_f]

From the [name_m]Otto[/name_m] combos, I like [name_m]Otto[/name_m] [name_m]Silvan[/name_m] better. [name_m]Silvan[/name_m] [name_m]Otto[/name_m] sounds like a car dealership said aloud lol.

Ooh this is very helpful thank you. Yes I think I had some vision of an island under a night sky in my mind!

Particularly like [name_f]Callisto[/name_f], [name_f]Ianthe[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f] & [name_f]Circe[/name_f]

[name_f]Moon[/name_f] is intriguing too, never thought to use it but [name_f]Vaila[/name_f] [name_f]Moon[/name_f] is very appealing.

And thanks for the [name_m]Otto[/name_m] feedback haha :rofl:. I do prefer [name_m]Otto[/name_m] [name_m]Silvan[/name_m].
