Sibiling name ideas for Carter

We are trying to have another baby and I would love to hear name suggestions that sound good with my son’s name, [name]Carter[/name] [name]Michael[/name] ([name]Michael[/name] is his middle name, our last name is also two syllables and ends with “er”). We have middle names (family names) we would like to use for boy ([name]William[/name]) and girl ([name]Caroline[/name]) but we’re having a tough time settling on first names for either, suggestions?

[name]Romy[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Piper[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] (Oops…Sorry again…too matchy with [name]Carter[/name])
[name]Paige[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] (although I like [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Paige[/name] more) :slight_smile:

Modern names that don’t sound the best with [name]Caroline[/name] (in case you don’t end up using [name]Caroline[/name], which I think is gorgeous, by the way) :slight_smile:

[name]Ellis[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name]

[name]Romilly[/name]

I can also see some classic or vintage names with [name]Carter[/name], such as:

Good luck!

A friend of mine has a [name]Carter[/name] and a [name]Vaughn[/name]. I love those names together!! [name]Vaughn[/name] [name]William[/name] – I like it.

[name]Hi[/name] I like [name]Carter[/name] and [name]Aston[/name] [name]William[/name] as they both have that trade/surnname feel. I think there are so many lovely girls picks with [name]Carter[/name] I rather [name]Amaia[/name], [name]Ilsa[/name] or [name]Matilda[/name]

good luck

Wow, thank you to everyone for some great names to think about!

To [name]Jill[/name]: [name]Susannah[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] takes first place on my list! [name]Love[/name] the way [name]Susannah[/name] sounds with [name]Caroline[/name] and it ties even further with [name]Susan[/name] being a family name.

[name]Logan[/name], [name]Mason[/name] and [name]Aiden[/name] were all names on my list for consideration but with their growing popularity I’m thinking of going a different direction. Ideally I would like to find a name that is not on the top of the charts without it being too obscure. But that is secondary to finding one that we both like to tie in with family names.

GIRLS:
My husband really likes [name]Carly[/name] for a first name, but I prefer it as a nickname for [name]Scarlett[/name] or [name]Charlotte[/name]. Which I think both go nicely with [name]Caroline[/name]. He likes them both also but is not sold.

We both love the name [name]Caroline[/name] and were planning to use it as the middle name but what about as a first name? Is it too close in generations to pass down from his mother? What about changing it slightly to [name]Carolina[/name]? And start over with middle names, or would you use one of my names as a middle, [name]Kelley[/name] or [name]Anne[/name]?

BOYS:
My sons name is completely family oriented. His first name, [name]Carter[/name] is my mother’s maiden name and his middle name, [name]Michael[/name] is my husbands first name.

Initially we thought of using one of my husbands middle names ([name]Paul[/name] [name]William[/name]) as the middle name for a second son. In talking further I think he prefers using [name]Michael[/name] again as a middle. What do you think about siblings having the same middle name? What about [name]William[/name] [name]Michael[/name]?

And finally some other family names are:
Girls:
[name]Janet[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Susan[/name]
[name]Sandra[/name]
[name]Dorothy[/name]
[name]Arleen[/name]
[name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Pamela[/name]
[name]Joyce[/name]
[name]Jennifer[/name]
[name]Jacqueline[/name]
[name]Kathleen[/name]
[name]Kelley[/name]
[name]Anne[/name]

Boys:
[name]Howard[/name]
[name]Jack[/name]
[name]Milton[/name]
[name]Gary[/name]
[name]Albert[/name]
[name]Michael[/name]
[name]Paul[/name]
[name]William[/name]

To answer your question about whether it is too close in generations to name your child after your husband’s mother I say I would be ecstatic if my daughter named her daughter after me and I am a [name]Caroline[/name].
