Rosemary's brother needs a name

Hello! I am looking for the right sibling name of Rosemary.

So far, we came up with

Daniel Joseph

Raphael Joseph

Joshua Joseph

Jacob Joseph.

The middle name Joseph is to honor my husband’s friend who died too young.

Which one is your favorite? And possibly why?

Thank you for your help in advance…

[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] is my favourite, followed up by [name_m]Joshua[/name_m]!

[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] is beautiful, because it’s both a vintage, classic choice but it’s also a bit more fun and unexpected. I’m sure your daughter hasn’t met many other Rosemarys! Now, of course something like [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] still works with [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f], but I think the classic but a bit more unique [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] is a better stylistic match!

Are you looking for suggestions or are you decided on these four?

Firstly love [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] :rose:

From your list I absolutely love [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] it’s such a handsome. [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] is a lovely underused biblical name that feels familiar and distinctive which to me has a similar vibe to [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]. I’m also a sucker for alliteration [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] is such a sweet pairing that visually looks so handsome also a little JJ would be cute :blue_heart:

Your whole list is stunning though! We definitely have a similar taste in names. I think for me it’s just [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] feels extra sparkly. [name_f]My[/name_f] only concern with [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] is that you could limit yourself using another R name if you were to be blessed with more children as I tend to find sibling sets with two R names then a random K name for example a bit visually odd.

Here are some further suggestions

[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] and…

[name_u]Elijah[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]

[name_m]Jeremiah[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_u]Timothy[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]

I think, because I grew up in the predominantly Irish Northeast, that [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] works the best with [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] (every [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] I ever knew was Irish).

Thanks!! I am open to other suggestions!

Thank you!!

Thanks!!

The Rosemarys I know have brothers [name_m]Patrick[/name_m], [name_u]Daniel[/name_u], and [name_m]Graham[/name_m]! I love [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] with Rosemary; they make a very cozy pairing I think.

Something like [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] might be nice too!

I love [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] & [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] together! They both have sweet, gentle sounds and imagery for me, so they pair really well as sibling names. And I also really like [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] as a combo. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] is a bit more romantic and European in feel, which doesn’t match Rosemary’s vintage, [name_f]English[/name_f] vibe. [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] and [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], while fine, both feel a little overused to me; plus, they don’t flow as well with the mn [name_u]Joseph[/name_u].

So my favorites independent of their sister’s name also happen to be the same as my favorites considering her name as well!

[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] & [name_u]Daniel[/name_u]
or
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] & [name_m]Raphael[/name_m]

I agree, [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] and [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] are my favorites for this sibset. Though, I think that whichever name you choose between these two could lead to two very different sibsets, because [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] & [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] sound more gentle and classic together, while [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] & [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] sound more artistic and romantic. Either way, they both go wonderfully with [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] :heart:

Personally, I like [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] the most. It’s a very sweet name and pairs well with [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]. Another sweet boys name is [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sammy[/name_u]. [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] & [name_u]Sammy[/name_u] is such a cute sibset. I’m sure whatever name you end up choosing will fit him perfectly, and will be absolutely adorable with [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]! Unless this feels like it’s locking you into an R theme. I just feel like [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] has that special spark-meets-classic-name vibe that [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] does. I think [name_u]Daniel[/name_u] [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] would be my runner up.
