Perfect Pairs!

Hello Berries! [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any names in particular that you think pair beautifully as siblings, because of style or feel? I find myself coming up with these, and sometimes the names themselves aren’t even my favorites, but they sound so wonderful together.

[name_f]Adele[/name_f] and [name_f]Irene[/name_f]
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Anais[/name_f] and [name_f]Esme[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and [name_f]Margot[/name_f]

I wish I was naturally good at this, but I really am not especially when I am thinking of boy-girl siblings. I take a lot of inspiration from real world siblings. Here are some real world pairings that I feel are perfect pairings and a few I managed to come up with myself:

  • Sar@h & A@ron
  • [name_u]Sam[/name_u] ([name_m]Samuel[/name_m]) & [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] ([name_m]Charles[/name_m])
  • [name_u]Sam[/name_u] & [name_m]Ben[/name_m] ([name_m]Bennett[/name_m] or [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m])
  • [name_u]Sam[/name_u] & [name_f]Clara[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Sam[/name_u] & [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Sam[/name_u] & [name_f]Rose[/name_f] ([name_m]Just[/name_m] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] or [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f])
  • [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f], & [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Coralie[/name_f] & [name_f]Crescent[/name_f]
  • Sar@h & [name_f]Ann[/name_f]@
  • C@leb & Sim0n
  • K33gan & Kyl!e

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and [name_f]Margot[/name_f] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] from your list are amazing!!

Some that fit well for me:

[name_f]Adele[/name_f] and [name_f]Mavis[/name_f]
[name_f]Florence[/name_f] and [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]
[name_f]Sienna[/name_f] and [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f]
[name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and [name_m]Leo[/name_m]
[name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and [name_u]Finley[/name_u]
[name_f]Heidi[/name_f] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] and [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]
[name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f]
[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]
[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_m]Reuben[/name_m]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m] and [name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f] and [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Anya[/name_f] and [name_f]Nadia[/name_f]

[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]/[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] & [name_f]Margot[/name_f] is one of my favourite pairs too! I really like [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] together as well. Names I think pair well:

[name_f]Lyra[/name_f] & [name_f]Clio[/name_f]
[name_f]Amadea[/name_f] & [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
[name_f]Adira[/name_f] & [name_f]Nyssa[/name_f]
[name_u]Cairo[/name_u] & [name_f]Sahar[/name_f]
[name_f]Pandora[/name_f] & [name_f]Evanthe[/name_f]/[name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Zelda[/name_f] & [name_f]Sybil[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] & [name_f]Verity[/name_f]
[name_f]Marigold[/name_f] & [name_f]Lavender[/name_f]
[name_u]Indigo[/name_u] & [name_u]August[/name_u] (both boys)
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] & [name_m]Edmund[/name_m]
Evren & [name_m]Taavi[/name_m]
[name_m]Linus[/name_m] & [name_m]Oswin[/name_m]
[name_m]Isidore[/name_m] & [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_f]Hermione[/name_f] & [name_m]Lysander[/name_m]
[name_f]Esmeralda[/name_f] & [name_m]Santiago[/name_m]
[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] & [name_f]Olympia[/name_f]
[name_m]Nikolai[/name_m] & [name_f]Phaedra[/name_f]

So for sure if I ever had two little boys, they’d be called [name_m]Archibald[/name_m] & [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] as [name_m]Archibald[/name_m] means “truly brave” and [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] means “peaceful ruler”, so I can imagine my two little boys as a little knight ([name_m]Archie[/name_m] being brave) and a little king ([name_m]Fred[/name_m] being a ruler) and I just adore that image in my head.

That’s really the only sibset I have. Obviously, I’d love for [name_f]Veronica[/name_f] & [name_m]Archibald[/name_m] and that’s what I’d name a girl and a boy and hopefully the Riverdale connections wouldn’t be a bad thing.

from my list:

[name_f]Veronica[/name_f] and [name_f]Alicia[/name_f] (ah-lee-see-ah)
[name_u]Darcy[/name_u] and [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] (either gender / g)

Frèdèrik and [name_m]Andreas[/name_m]
[name_u]Tyson[/name_u] and [name_u]Addison[/name_u] (b)

Others I’ve heard/can think of;

L0ttie, Fl0rence and [name_f]Annabell[/name_f]@
Charl0tte and [name_f]Tess[/name_f]@
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Millie[/name_f] and [name_f]Lottie[/name_f]
[name_f]Cadence[/name_f] and [name_f]Melody[/name_f]
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] and [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]

[name_m]Archie[/name_m] and [name_u]Freddie[/name_u]
[name_m]Harry[/name_m] and [name_u]Bertie[/name_u]
[name_m]Albert[/name_m] and [name_m]Ernest[/name_m]

D0ris and [name_m]Ernest[/name_m]

I really like [name_u]Jameson[/name_u] and [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] ([name_u]Jem[/name_u] and [name_u]Clem[/name_u])

@sd2017: S@rah and [name_f]Ann[/name_f]@ work perfectly together!

@greyblue: Thank you! [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f] is genius.

I once met a women with twin toddlers called [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f] and [name_f]Camilla[/name_f], and I thought that was so sweet. I’ve also known siblings with the names [name_u]Cassidy[/name_u] (b), [name_u]Riley[/name_u] (b), and [name_u]Piper[/name_u] (g), which I thought was adorable.

From my own favorites:

[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] and [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] and Fairly
Trapper and [name_m]Sargent[/name_m]
[name_m]Cotton[/name_m] (b) and Glow (g)
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] and [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_m]Hawthorne[/name_m] and [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]

I love this idea! I keep a list of my favorites.

@greyblue: [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] & [name_m]Leo[/name_m] are perfect!

I had just commented on another thread that I had a friend w/two cats named [name_m]Otis[/name_m] & [name_m]Angus[/name_m]…those two names seem to go well together [name_f]IMO[/name_f].

I like the way the following combinations sound/go together:

[name_f]Silvie[/name_f] & [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] & [name_f]Fleur[/name_f]
[name_f]Francesca[/name_f] & [name_f]Giulia[/name_f]
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f] & [name_f]Jemima[/name_f]
[name_f]Alexandria[/name_f] & [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f]

I seem to remember there was a thread with a similar question not too long ago: https://nameberry.com/nametalk/threads/284225-Matching-Multiples :slight_smile:

Here are the ones I love the sound of; some I would use and some I would not. Also, some are obvious connections and some are not.

  • denotes ones I would actually use - the rest contain GP/Vetoed names/sets.

*[name_f]Lillian[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] - “[name_f]Lily[/name_f]” & “[name_f]Rose[/name_f]”
*[name_f]Callista[/name_f] & [name_f]Ingrid[/name_f] - both mean beautiful
[name_f]Coraline[/name_f] & [name_f]Adaline[/name_f] - endings the same.
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] & [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] - [name_m]Long[/name_m] ‘e’ sound last syllable
*[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] & [name_f]Elodie[/name_f] - [name_u]Love[/name_u] the similar start but vastly different ends.
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] & [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f]
[name_f]Nerissa[/name_f] & [name_f]Mariska[/name_f]
*[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] & [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Harlow[/name_f] & [name_u]Monroe[/name_u] - Old Hollywood starlets.

*[name_f]Harlow[/name_f] & [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Vanessa[/name_f] & [name_f]Mariposa[/name_f] - Both have butterfly connections
[name_f]Thalia[/name_f] & [name_f]Delilah[/name_f]

*[name_m]Leonardo[/name_m] & [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] - Painters I love
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m] & [name_m]Salvatore[/name_m] - Mafia members… GP interest is underworld crime.
*[name_m]Conrad[/name_m] & [name_m]Leopold[/name_m] - Brave meanings
[name_m]Wyatt[/name_m] & [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]

*[name_f]Amaya[/name_f] & [name_m]Raiden[/name_m] - (storm/rain meanings)
