double first names: [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
(Mary after the Virgin [name_f]Mary[/name_f] - pretty tied to Xmas, but since the name is so common, it’s not overly tied just to the holiday!xx)

[name_f]Sarah[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeva[/name_f] are expecting triplets! Two girls and one boy. They’d like the babies’ names to all be alliterative with one another, but not start with S or M. Each baby will have two middle names - one name after a member of their mother’s’ families (you decide who and what that name is), and one middle name that honors their mothers directly.

[name_f]Tori[/name_f] and [name_m]Jason[/name_m] are expecting their first child! They want to keep the gender a surprise, so they’d like an option for both a boy and a girl. For the first name, they want something original and modern that still very much works as a name. For the middle, they’d like it to be [name_m]German[/name_m] in origin and have a cool meaning.

Rebecca and Josh are expecting their third child, a baby girl! they have a five year old boy, Rowan, and a three year old girl, Sage, who are both very excited! they want the first name to be a nature name, but they want to make sure that it doesn’t rhyme with [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] or [name_u]Sage[/name_u]! for the middle name they want a long and elegant name that flows beautifully with the first name!

[name_f]Melanie[/name_f] is expecting her first child - a baby girl! She’d like an unusual first name with some connection to the element of fire - a reference to her family’s known spirit. Having opted for IVF and single motherhood, she’d like her daughters’ first middle to be that of an inspirational woman who isn’t given much attention by the history books. For her second middle, it should be floral and soft - but [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] have already been taken off the list, thanks to associating these with her cousin and best friends daughter.

[name_f]Arielle[/name_f] and [name_m]Benji[/name_m] are struggling to name their little boy, who is due in six weeks. Benji’s family has generations of children (especially sons) with Biblical names, but neither [name_f]Arielle[/name_f] or [name_m]Benji[/name_m] are particularly religious. They’d like to put a spin on that tradition. They want to give their child a first name that honors a spiritual, benevolent person from history that is often forgotten (they don’t have to be Christian). For the middle name, [name_f]Arielle[/name_f] wants to honor her stillborn twin sister, Mary-Alice [name_f]Fantasia[/name_f]. Lastly, they would like to use Arielle’s maiden name Crimm as a third middle.

They want to make sure her first name has a one-syllable nickname (like their names) and is relatively common (not unheard of). For her middle name, they want something that fits the cottagecore vibe and is short and sweet

[name_f]Talia[/name_f] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] are expecting boy girl twins. They would like to honor Talias family’s gardening hobby passed down generation to generation, and use two flower names. [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] would like the names to be uncommon, so not [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], or [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]. They also want a long, uncommon name. They don’t mind nicknames, but avoid names with common nicknames. They almost named their older daughter [name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f] but avoided it due to the common nickname [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. They hope the middle names will be short, but out of the top 50 The younger son Larkspur(4) inherited her mom’s family’s love of plants and hoped that the flowers the twins are named after are colorful.
Their daughter, Wisteria(7), wanted to name the children [name_f]Mary[/name_f] and Dickon, after the characters in her favorite book, The [name_f]Secret[/name_f] Garden, read to her by her mom, so a tie in to those names would be cute, possibly with an initial or a middle name.

Jasmine " Jazz " and Eric are expecting their first child together - a boy! He’ll be joining Eric’s two daughters from a previous marriage - 9 year old Greer Annabelle and 6 year old Sutton Phoebe - who weren’t the friendliest to Jazz at first, but they’ve since warmed up and are over the moon with esictement. They’re looking for another unisex first name, but it can’t begin with a G or S - nor can it end on the same sound as either of the girls’s names. The couple have let Greer and Sutton decide on the criteria for their brothers middle name and the girls have decided it should be tied to nature, wanting to pay tribute and say thanks to their very loving, patient stepmum.

Summary

[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] both mean “gift of God” and are made of the same Greek particles, theos and doros. [name_f]Theresa[/name_f] and [name_m]Terrence[/name_m] can both be shortened to [name_u]Terry[/name_u] and contain strong “ter” sounds.


[name_u]William[/name_u] “Billy” and [name_f]Martina[/name_f] are welcoming their third child, a little boy! They are lovers of the arts, especially theatre and Pre-Raphaelite paintings, and they want to reflect these passions in their children’s names. They’re already parents to twin girls [name_f]Cosette[/name_f] [name_f]Mariana[/name_f] and [name_f]Christine[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], so would prefer not to use a C first name but aren’t as fussy about repeating middle initials.
