Obsessing about Luca's future sibs :)

Now that [name]Luca[/name] is going on four months and I’m getting a bit more sleep, I’ve starting obsessing about what I’m going to name his future siblings. I’m actually wondering if I’ll be able to name them at all! My husband and I are both half Italian, so we like that [name]Luca[/name] is Italian but still “goes” with our more [name]German[/name]-sounding last name (husband’s other half is [name]German[/name]/Polish). Below are all of the stipulations for future names.

  • Can’t begin with R or L
  • Can’t end in -r, or -ra
  • Goes with [name]Luca[/name], but isn’t overly “matchy” (so doesn’t necessarily need to be Italian)
  • Goes with our [name]German[/name]-sounding last name (very similar to Rothman)
  • Middle names for girls: [name]Celeste[/name], [name]Magdalena[/name] or [name]Camilla[/name] (preferably [name]Celeste[/name])
  • Middle names for boys: [name]John[/name], [name]Paul[/name] or [name]Winston[/name] (or some combination)

Names we like but can’t use for various reasons: [name]Clara[/name], [name]Lila[/name], [name]Simon[/name], [name]Jasper[/name], [name]Ada[/name], [name]Milo[/name], [name]Eudora[/name], [name]Hugo[/name]

I’m in love with [name]Paloma[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] or [name]Delphine[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] but I’m not sure they go with our last name. For boys, lately I like [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Paul[/name] (but [name]Sebastian[/name] is way too popular for my tastes). And of course I still have a soft spot for [name]Annabel[/name]!

Any ideas?

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Olive[/name]! :slight_smile: I’m glad you’re sleeping more. ([name]Luca[/name], you’re totally allowed to sleep through the night! Go for it, little guy!)

[name]Amelia[/name] ( Italian [name]Mia[/name] nn, although it’s popular)
[name]Dorothea[/name] (nn [name]Thea[/name]…isn’t this your middle name?)
[name]Francesca[/name] (I love [name]Francesca[/name]!)
[name]Gemma[/name] (Italian, too!)
[name]Miranda[/name] (nn [name]Mira[/name])
[name]Theodora[/name] (nn [name]Thea[/name])

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] and [name]Delphine[/name], and [name]Annabel[/name] is one of my all-time favorites. :slight_smile:

[name]Roman[/name] (conveniently forgetting the R rule)
[name]Raphael[/name] (ditto)

I think [name]Sebastian[/name] would be great with [name]Luca[/name]! :slight_smile:

Good luck, [name]Olive[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Jill[/name], you have such a good memory! Yes, my mn is [name]Dorothea[/name]. I have thought about using it, even though I use to hate it :slight_smile: Of course when I was a kid I wanted to be [name]Cindy[/name].

I knew you’d think of some names I hadn’t considered”[name]Dahlia[/name], [name]Mirabelle[/name], and [name]SImone[/name] are all going on the girl’s list. For boys, I think [name]Cassius[/name] is amazing! Can’t believe I haven’t thought of that since I love many of the -us names! I actually love [name]Raphael[/name] too but would have to work on DH with that one.

Thanks for giving me some fresh ideas :slight_smile:

Yea! I love [name]Dahlia[/name], [name]Mirabelle[/name], and [name]Simone[/name]. ([name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Simone[/name] is my favorite [name]Dahlia[/name] combo.)

I really love [name]Luca[/name] with [name]Cassius[/name], too.

Your babies will certainly have style! :slight_smile:

You sound exactly like me! Mine is just over four months and I’m completely obsessed with what his future siblings will be named. Is it me, or does it seem a little more fun now to think about future baby names, already having one as a jumping off point? I seem to be more obsessed with names now than ever before.`And I’m so with you on the rules, I’m just starting to figure out what endings work best with my last name, lol. Fun stuff. I can’t right now, but I’ll be back to play by your rules soon.

Good”I’m glad I’m not alone! You have little [name]Dashiell[/name], right? I love his name. It’s definitely helpful having a start point now, although I’ve also had to say goodbye to some favorites ([name]Leo[/name], [name]Lila[/name]) now we have a [name]Luca[/name]! What sib names are you thinking about?

I also have an obsession with sibling names for my daughter who is just 2 months now! I love [name]Annabelle[/name]” but it doesn”t work with our last name. You already have a lot of great choices but here are a few more.







Oh, I love [name]Silas[/name]!

I like [name]Silas[/name] a lot too!


Now I am obsessed with [name]Luca[/name]'s future siblings along with my own daughters siblings… haha

First off, I [name]ADORE[/name] the name [name]Luca[/name]! What a wonderful choice! I’ve always thought Italian’s had the coolest names. :slight_smile:

Some suggestions for a brother:

*I think [name]Sebastian[/name] would sound wonderful with [name]Luca[/name]!

Some suggestions for a sister:
[name]Dorothy[/name] (nn [name]Dot[/name], [name]Dotty[/name]).
[name]Gabriella[/name] (nn [name]Ella[/name]).

I threw some Italian names, but a lot of them are just names I could see flowing with [name]Luca[/name]. :wink:
Best wishes!
