New sis/bro!

Sibling to:
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] “Aurie” [name_u]Anne[/name_u]
[name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Caleb[/name_m] “Cabes” [name_m]Josiah[/name_m]

We’ve really liked [name_f]Adelade[/name_f] and [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] for a girl, but they won’t work because of the many confusing pronunciations. Our 2-syllable surname begins with “J” and ends in “son.”

Name meaning is important :upside_down_face:

Is [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] too close to [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]? One of the reasons I like the nn [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is because it doesn’t end in an “e” sound. It’s funny. I’ve spent so much time looking at names, I feel like I’m looking for something “new.”

I like [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], but isnt it too common? What are nn besides [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]? I want a daughter’s name to sound like a girl. For that reason, I would also like to names that are primarily shortened to maddie/ addy/ maggie or elle/ella. Those kinds.

I like [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], but it sounds too close to [name_f]Aurie[/name_f].
I like [name_f]Katherine[/name_f], but we already have a close [name_f]Katie[/name_f]. Is there another related name or nn that wouldn’t be too close to Katie/ [name_f]Aurie[/name_f] to use for another [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]?

I like [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Sarah[/name_f].

I really like [name_m]Peter[/name_m]. What nn have you associated with this name besides [name_m]Pete[/name_m]? Maybe there aren’t any; that’s okay.

I like [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], but I’m not a huge fan of alliterative first or last syllables. Ben’s nice though somehow. Hubby nixed it. I’ll try again haha

Can’t have a [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] and a [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]. I would get that so confused.

I like [name_f]Renee[/name_f]. Would you leave the accent off? [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] is also nice, but husband nixed it. I really like V names. It’s baby #5 after all! [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] sounds too much like caleb’s nn.
[name_u]Robert[/name_u]. Hmm. Thinking some more about this one. I like [name_u]Ezra[/name_u]. Is that too common? [name_u]Bennett[/name_u]. Sounds like it might be a good match for [name_u]Elliot[/name_u].

[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] is a new one for me! As i think longer on it, I’m not sure it’s right. Two syllables and ends in the “n” sound. [name_m]Isaac[/name_m]. [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m]. Those two names sounds so close. I like the “saia” sound more than the “sick” sound. [name_f]Aurie[/name_f] and [name_u]Rory[/name_u] would make me go insane trying to figure out which kid I was calling.

[name_f]Eva[/name_f]. Does that come from [name_f]Eve[/name_f]? Is it weird naming a last child [name_f]Eva[/name_f]?

Thank you all!


I do see what you mean with [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] and [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] being close! I definitely don’t find them to close, as they’re different syllable counts and different feels! [name_f]Annabeth[/name_f], [name_f]Marybeth[/name_f], [name_f]Maybeth[/name_f], Rosebeth, or Amybeth might offer a good amount of difference. :relaxed:

Also, I don’t really think [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] it’s too common with your babes, but I totally understand if it feels to common to you! [name_f]Lottie[/name_f], [name_f]Lo[/name_f], [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], [name_f]Lotte[/name_f] (LOT-uh, as I understand the pronunciation), and [name_f]Carly[/name_f] are some other nickname choices!

And just for fun, some names that shorten to [name_f]Maddy[/name_f], [name_f]Aggie[/name_f], [name_f]Elle[/name_f] / [name_f]Ella[/name_f], and similar nicknames! I love that that’s the style you’re aiming for!! I really like a very “girly” feeling name myself.

[name_f]Magdalen[/name_f] (maybe too close to Margaret?) nn [name_f]Maddy[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] nn [name_f]Ella[/name_f], [name_f]Elle[/name_f] (though this name and nickname are fairly close to [name_u]Elliot[/name_u], I think)

Oh, and for boys!

I don’t know any [name_m]Peter[/name_m] nicknames aside from [name_m]Pete[/name_m]. I always wish I did! Perhaps [name_m]Petey[/name_m]?

Perhaps if [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] isn’t the one, [name_m]Benedict[/name_m] with nn [name_m]Ben[/name_m] or [name_m]Ned[/name_m] would work! I personally adore alliteration in first and last names (feels so heroic and important!), but I know it’s not for everyone.


[name_u]Elliot[/name_u], [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], [name_u]Daniel[/name_u], [name_m]Caleb[/name_m] &

Yes, I feel that the pronunciation is clear and I would leave the accent off [name_f]Renee[/name_f] personally.

I misspoke. I do like the names with nicknames addie, maddie, maggie, ella, elie, etc, but find that they are so prevalent and would prefer to avoid them. You were so thoughtful in drumming up a list, @snowmaiden! I do love the spirit behind those nicknames though!

Everyone else, you are so much more experienced in making. What is my “style” in naming? I’ve seen lists and can’t quite place myself. Maybe you all have more insight!

[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] , [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_u]Anne[/name_u] , [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] and [name_m]Caleb[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m] are beautiful!!

I think some cute additions could be

[name_f]Rebecca[/name_f] [name_f]Aline[/name_f]
[name_f]Rachel[/name_f] [name_f]Angeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Abigail[/name_f] [name_u]Avery[/name_u]
[name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Alexa[/name_f]
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_u]Abba[/name_u]
