Seventh Sibling Name

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries, I think we’ll be trying for one last kiddo and I could use some help!

DH and I have a [name_u]French[/name_u] last name ending with the “oh” sound, though [name_u]French[/name_u] isn’t our first language. We live in the north (think [name_f]Alaska[/name_f]) and have 6 kids, so our name lists look sort of bare now.

We like names that are different, and I know they might not all “go” together but that doesn’t really bother me as long as it’s the right name. We’ve never used family names and I don’t like repeating the first initial. I’m leaning toward a name starting with E, L, or maybe J, but I’m open to any. We favour mythological, literary, astrological, and nature names so far, and I like “out there” historical names!

We’ve got
DS

(I’ll probably edit these names out later since it makes it too easy to find us, so please don’t write them all in your posts!)

Thanks for any suggestions!

So many great names! Thank you! :blush:

I think your names are lovely and actually I do like them all together, congrats on trying for number 7!

Most of the names below are ancient and have their basis in mythology, as well as nature

For a little girl, may I offer up:

  • [name_f]Carina[/name_f] (with this spelling): means dear little one; [name_f]Carina[/name_f] is one of three constellations in the [name_m]Argo[/name_m] Navis (aka [name_m]Argo[/name_m]) constellation. This constellation looks like a ship, and [name_f]Carina[/name_f] is the keel of the ship.
  • [name_f]Ursa[/name_f]: means little female bear; [name_f]Ursa[/name_f] [name_m]Major[/name_m] and [name_f]Ursa[/name_f] [name_m]Minor[/name_m] are known as the Great [name_m]Bear[/name_m] and the Lesser [name_m]Bear[/name_m].
  • [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]: means dolphin; Delphinus is the dolphin constellation of the 88 major constellations
  • Dysis: one of the Greek Horae (Hours) who were the goddesses of the seasons in Greek mythology. Dysis was the goddess of the hour of sunset.

For a little boy, may I offer up:

  • [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]: means dark red; a mythological bird, the name of 1 of the 88 major constellations, and the capital of [name_f]Arizona[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Indus[/name_m]: not only is it the name of a river that flows through Pakistan, [name_f]India[/name_f] & Tibet, but it is also the name of 1 of the 88 major constellations
  • [name_m]Draco[/name_m]: means dragon; is known as dragon of the 88 constellations

You’ve already got so many amazing suggestions that I don’t think I could muster up the creativity to add any better ones, but I just wanted to pop in and say that your kiddos names are true gifts. They’re incredible!

Thank you so much! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’d love some more suggestions as DH hasn’t found any he likes so far. [name_f]My[/name_f] kids names have been edited out of the original post but I still mention along which lines we lean for naming. Thank you!
