[name]Hi[/name], there. :slight_smile: My name is [name]Kate[/name]. I am a (slightly crazy) mother to six, with baby #7 on the way. Yes, we do know what is causing all of these children :slight_smile:

My husband and I are having difficulty finding names we both like. We don’t know yet if B#7 is a boy or a girl, but we want something that flows with our children’s names without being overbearing.

We have 3 boys and 3 girls (and in that mix, 2 sets of twins!)

[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Faith[/name] is our oldest ([name]Olivia[/name])
[name]Bentley[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] and [name]Parker[/name] [name]Reid[/name] are twins ([name]Bentley[/name] and [name]Parker[/name])
[name]Layla[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] is in the middle ([name]Layla[/name] [name]Kate[/name])
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Brody[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] are our second set of twins ([name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Brody[/name])

I like [name]Julia[/name] and [name]Annalee[/name] for a girl (no idea on middle name) and [name]Carson[/name] and [name]Liam[/name] for a boy, but DH disagrees. He wants to use [name]Isabelle[/name] for a girl and [name]Jackson[/name] for a boy.

What are your thoughts? [name]Do[/name] any of those work, or should we throw all of it out and go back to the drawing board?

I like [name]Jackson[/name] a lot with your other kids, Carsom and [name]Liam[/name] as well.

I love all of your children’s names!
As for the question…
[name]Julia[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it! There’s also [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Juliana[/name], [name]Julie[/name]…
[name]Annalee[/name] - Dislike. Sounds like [name]Anna[/name] and [name]Lee[/name] pushed together. Maybe [name]Annabelle[/name] or Annabeth?
[name]Carson[/name] - It’s okay,
[name]Liam[/name] - Very nice!
[name]Isabelle[/name] - Too popular for my taste…
[name]Jackson[/name] - Meh

Overall, I think that [name]Julia[/name] & [name]Liam[/name] are the best. Other ideas…

  • [name]Seamus[/name]
  • [name]Tristan[/name]
  • [name]Cormac[/name]
  • [name]Antonia[/name]
  • [name]Diana[/name]
  • [name]Louisa[/name]

We almost named [name]Olivia[/name] “[name]Isabelle[/name]”, and I didn’t like it then anymore than I like it now. I don’t dislike it, but I don’t like the way it flows with our last name, and although several of our children do have overly popular names ([name]Olivia[/name], [name]Bentley[/name], etc) , [name]Isabelle[/name] is more commonly heard. :slight_smile:

Absolutely [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Cormac[/name], though!

Please no [name]Annalee[/name]…sounds like Anally!

I like [name]Julia[/name] but not with [name]Olivia[/name]. What about [name]Julianne[/name]?

[name]Love[/name] [name]Carson[/name] and [name]Liam[/name] with your childrens’ names! And love that you love [name]Cormac[/name], because it’s my favorite of all. With your girls, what about [name]Juliet[/name] or [name]Violet[/name]?

For a girl, I agree with some of the above comments that [name]Julia[/name] is a little too close to [name]Olivia[/name], [name]Annalee[/name] sounds a little off, and [name]Isabelle[/name] is fairly popular. But I do think that style-wise, [name]Julia[/name] and [name]Isabelle[/name] fit really well with your sibset. What about [name]Annabelle[/name]/[name]Annabel[/name] instead? It’s pretty close to [name]Isabelle[/name], but not as popular. Some other names that are similar to your list and I think would fit well with your sibset are: Annabeth, [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Juliana[/name], or [name]Isadora[/name].

For a boy, I like [name]Carson[/name] or [name]Liam[/name] the most with your sibset. I’m not a huge [name]Jackson[/name] fan, and it’s very popular. I like the suggestion of [name]Cormac[/name] too and think that would work well with your sibset. I put more boy-name alternatives below.

Some other possibilities are:

[name]Olivia[/name], [name]Bentley[/name], [name]Parker[/name], [name]Layla[/name] [name]Kate[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Brody[/name], and



[name]Olivia[/name], [name]Bentley[/name], [name]Parker[/name], [name]Layla[/name] [name]Kate[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Brody[/name] and…
[name]Carter[/name] or [name]Lucas[/name] for a boy.
[name]Ava[/name] or [name]Sophia[/name] for a girl.
