Rough time finding THE name!

I have a DD named [name]Evan[/name]. We can’t find a name for DD#2.

so far we have:
[name]Catherine[/name] “[name]Cate[/name]”

We don’t want anything SUPER common…but otherwise we’re open to MANY suggestions. Any ideas?? Help!!

With a girl named [name]Evan[/name] I would definitely not use a feminine name for a second daughter. I would use a unisex name that rings more boyish, since that’s how [name]Evan[/name] is for me. [name]Quinn[/name] and [name]Finley[/name] could work, but they’re both popular for girls and boys. I’d go with something like [name]Logan[/name] or [name]Sean[/name]. A few ideas:


Like [name]Lyndsay[/name] said, I’d definitely stick with unisex or masculine names with a sister named [name]Evan[/name].

[name]Darien[/name] (which may be too feminine)

Good luck!

For a unisex name, I like: [name]Emersyn[/name], [name]Cameron[/name] (Cameryn, [name]Camryn[/name]), [name]Emory[/name], [name]Ellery[/name], [name]Avery[/name]…

I like [name]Hadden[/name] or [name]Aiden[/name] for girls, also what about… [name]Owen[/name] or [name]Addison[/name]?

What about [name]Shea[/name]? I agree with a girl named [name]Evan[/name], it would be best stick to something not too frilly. I do like [name]Quinn[/name] for a girl.

I like the idea of sticking with a nice gender free short name for [name]Evan[/name]'s sister (plus the higher grades she’ll get when they don’t know she’s a girl!) but how about having some fun with a sweet and feminine middle name?
[name]Shea[/name] [name]Serena[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Carolina[/name]

Good luck!

thanks for all the responses.
Her middle name will definitely be [name]Catherine[/name] (family name).
we’re still struggling…anymore ideas??

Awe, darn! You’re still struggling? Hmm…

Let’s see:

[name]Brice[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Dale[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (but people may think of [name]Dale[/name] [name]Evans[/name] with an [name]Evan[/name] and a [name]Dale[/name]…)
[name]Darcy[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (probably too feminine…)
[name]Harper[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Carter[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
Isaly [name]Catherine[/name] (but this is probably too feminine)
[name]Jeremy[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (nn [name]Jem[/name])
[name]Kendall[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (used more on girls, though)
[name]Lane[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Quincy[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (not the best flow…)
[name]Rory[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Shane[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Tierney[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Wylie[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]

I’ll keep thinking! :slight_smile: Good luck!

[name]How[/name] about [name]Jones[/name]?

Sorry to come in with only one suggestion. Seems much has already been covered!

I’ve got to say that all four of the names you originally posted go well with [name]Evan[/name] to me. With [name]Evan[/name] [name]Rachel[/name] [name]Wood[/name] making more movies and becoming more well known, [name]Evan[/name] could skew more feminine over the years, so I don’t think you have to worry about other names sounding overly feminine with it (especially since none of your choices shown here are elaborate or infantile–it’s not like you’re considering [name]Seraphina[/name] or [name]Sissy[/name]). There are also already a lot of girls’ names ending with that “en” sound. Having one boyish name does not necessitate having a similarly boyish name; you could use another name starting with E, another two-syllable name with the stress on the first syllable, another name with a V or N sound, etc. if you’re really concerned with matching.

[name]Avery[/name] goes nicely with the sound of [name]Evan[/name] and is still pretty unisex, and also flows well with [name]Catherine[/name] as a middle name. If you like alliteration, perhaps [name]Carson[/name]? I had a female classmate named this once and it seemed to fit well.

Thanks. you guys are the most helpful bunch! We still haven’t decided…or agreed, rather. My favs are: [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Cate[/name], and [name]Larkin[/name]. DH likes: [name]Tyler[/name], [name]Leah[/name]/[name]Lia[/name], [name]Natalie[/name]. ::sigh:: Maybe she’ll come out looking exactly like one name or another :slight_smile:

[name]Ryan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Tegan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Devon[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Logan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Taylor[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Colby[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Elisha[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Ellery[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Elliot[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Finley[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]London[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Reese[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Sawyer[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Sloan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Cameron[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Jordan[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Tyler[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Darby[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]

[name]Evan[/name] & [name]Eden[/name]??
[name]Evan[/name] & [name]Isla[/name] or [name]Islay[/name]…

I like the idea of both names starting with vowels… its similar but not too hokey…

here are some more vowel suggestions…

hope that help… let us know your suggestions!



[name]Addison[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]. It sounds delightful to me.

My hubby likes [name]Addison[/name] a lot, but we have a close friend with a DD named [name]Addison[/name].
We’re still up in the air…the name choices are: [name]Cate[/name], [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Lia[/name], or [name]Larkin[/name]. thanks for the continued help though…I’m still searching :slight_smile:

I love [name]Quinn[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
I also like [name]Sawyer[/name] Chatherine
