Would [name_u]Bowie[/name_u] and [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] work as brothers, or is the theme too obvious?

I think people would pick up on it, but I think it could still work. [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] is a fairly common name with other associations so it’s not like you’d be naming them [name_u]Bowie[/name_u] and [name_u]Ziggy[/name_u].

Can you suggest some long names in the style of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] etc?

Beautiful! [name_m]Just[/name_m] a timeless, elegant classic. Popular where I live, but [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is a name that is just about always usable for me.

They make a gorgeous combo! I think I prefer the flow of [name_f]Ceridwen[/name_f] [name_u]Louise[/name_u], but both are stunning!

Do you prefer [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] [name_f]Vittoria[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] & [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Bronte[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] or [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] [name_f]Bronte[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] & [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Vittoria[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f]?

i prefer the latter of the combos, [name_f]Bronte[/name_f] makes for a beautiful fantasy evoking middle to slightly more familiar [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f], and [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Vittoria[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] gives off a very royal, melodic vibe with underrated word name [name_f]Autumn[/name_f], like dancing in a forest in october. it avoids the alliteration (unless u love that of course) of [name_f]Vittoria[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] making for nicer flow. i hope this answered your question good enough !

what do you think of the combination [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Seraphim[/name_m] ? im worried about the sounds sounding similar to me, but i love the look of it

I don’t find the sounds too repetitive at all! it’s a sort of different side to [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] - I’m so used to thinking of it as a cosy, warm vintage name, but this middle really brings out the once and future king side, which I’m definitely ready to embrace. I think it’s really lovely, and I love to see bold middle names.


what are your thoughts on [name_f]Eurydice[/name_f] [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] [name_f]Agatha[/name_f], and what can you think of to sub in for [name_f]Lilac[/name_f]?
(I say eurydice yu-RID-ih-see)

I don’t love it, unfortunately. It has all the elements I would typically love but it just doesn’t do it for me. I think [name_f]Eurydice[/name_f] [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] flows beautifully but the transition between [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] and [name_f]Agatha[/name_f] feels a bit clunky and forced.

Maybe [name_f]Eurydice[/name_f] [name_f]Primrose[/name_f] [name_f]Agatha[/name_f] as a sub?

Fyfe is short & cute! [name_u]Love[/name_u] the look of it. Works for me.

Thoughts on [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] [name_u]Fable[/name_u]?

I really like [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] [name_u]Fable[/name_u]. [name_u]Fable[/name_u] enhance [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f]’s beautifully fairy feeling.

Uncommon, but not weird middle for [name_m]Leon[/name_m] of any syllable count.

Long name for the NN Oli? (aside from [name_u]Oliver[/name_u])

I can only think of [name_u]Oliver[/name_u] and Olivander, maybe Solomon at a stretch

Brother for [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] ([name_u]Rory[/name_u]) and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] ([name_f]Nell[/name_f])?

Rosalie, [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] and

Clarence nn [name_m]Renzo[/name_m]? Thoughts?

I like it! Myself, I would think [name_m]Renzo[/name_m] was short for [name_m]Lorenzo[/name_m], but [name_m]Clarence[/name_m] totally works too. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thoughts on: [name_f]Valkyrie[/name_f], [name_f]Valley[/name_f] (as a middle), [name_f]Thessaly[/name_f] and Aiolos? :blush:

I think Aiolos is big tongue twister in way many names aren’t, but I do like [name_f]Valkyrie[/name_f], [name_f]Thessaly[/name_f] and even [name_f]Valley[/name_f] as first names or middles.

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you have suggestion to alternative to nameberry forums? I don’t plan to leave this forum, but I feel like I need alternative forum to discuss some names, since baby name wizard forum are gone.
