Ruby Clementine and Gemma?

We are expecting our second baby in [name]March[/name] and we don’t know the sex yet. Our first daughter is named [name]Gemma[/name] and our last name is [name]Bale[/name]. For girls, we like [name]Ruby[/name], [name]Lila[/name], [name]Lucy[/name] , [name]Penny[/name] (spouse doesn”t like [name]Penelope[/name] but likes [name]Penny[/name]). Middle names we like are [name]Clementine[/name], and possibly [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], or something classic yet unique. The last name being one syllable is somewhat limiting. We like [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Ruby[/name] and don”t really care about the whole ”stone, jewel” similarity, but we also like the other names a lot! Thoughts?

I think [name]Ruby[/name] and [name]Gemma[/name] make a great sib-set! [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] is very pretty, but when I say [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Bale[/name] outloud, there are a lot of “b” sounds. [name]How[/name] about [name]Clementine[/name] as a first name? What is [name]Gemma[/name]'s mn?

[name]Gemma[/name]'s mn is [name]Juliet[/name]. We went with the J J sound. So, lots of B’s might not bother us. Thanks for the reponse!

[name]Gemma[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] is very pretty! That being said, what a great sib-set:
[name]Gemma[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]!
I also love the name [name]Pearl[/name]…very soft, feminine and pretty.

Sorry all, wow my brain is dead today and I was using my iphone which self corrects spelling…our last name is [name]Baze[/name], not [name]Bale[/name]. I didnt’ even notice! It probably won’t change much since it’s still one syllable, starting with B.

[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Ruby[/name] are way too matchy together. I also don’t think [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Baze[/name] sounds very good-- too B-heavy. From your list, I really like [name]Lila[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name]. [name]Both[/name] sound great with [name]Gemma[/name], [name]Clementine[/name], and your last name. :slight_smile:

I dont think [name]Ruby[/name] and [name]Gemma[/name] are too matchy. I really like the idea of [name]Clementine[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] [name]Baze[/name].
