Sibling for Arthur!

We have a 6 year old [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m], and we are trying to come up with sibling names. We call him [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] or [name_m]Art[/name_m] most of the time.

If it’s a boy we are pretty well set on
[name_m]Bertram[/name_m] [name_m]Jeffrey[/name_m], nicknamed [name_u]Bertie[/name_u].

But for a girl we aren’t sure. Which of these go better with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]? (Middle name will be one of these family names: [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f], [name_f]Augusta[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f])

[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] (nicknamed [name_f]Minnie[/name_f])
[name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]

Thank you in advance for your help!

I like [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] the most, [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f], probably, with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m].

Some suggestions:
[name_f]Celia[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Cece[/name_f], [name_f]Lia[/name_f])
[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Eve[/name_f], [name_f]Evie[/name_f])
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Bea[/name_f], [name_f]Beatie[/name_f], [name_f]Trixie[/name_f])
[name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Essie[/name_f])
[name_f]Helena[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Nell[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f])

I’m quite partial to [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f]!

I love the solid dependable feel that [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] has, I personally have a massive soft spot for [name_f]Jane[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f] from your list. [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f] or [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] is simply divine and I think [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] is to die for!

Might I suggest using a longer form for [name_f]Rose[/name_f], such a [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] or [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] just because you seem to like longer names with a sweet nickname, but I do love [name_f]Rose[/name_f] on its own as well.

To be honest, you really can’t go wrong with the names you have shortlisted but I would choose [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f].

Oh, I love your son’s name!

And I know it has to be a family middle, but I’d love [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Miriam[/name_f].

[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] or [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f] are my favourites.

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] is a brilliant name :slight_smile:

[name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] or [name_f]Jane[/name_f] go best to me.

[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f]/Lucillle
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]

I’d also suggest [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f], if you wanted suggestions, but I think your list has lots of good options :slight_smile:

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] is a great name, & [name_u]Bertie[/name_u] would be adorable for a little brother.

As for a girl…

[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] (nicknamed [name_f]Minnie[/name_f])-I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] it. [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] is such an underused gem. It’s sweet for a little tyke, but smart & feminine for a grown woman. [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] is a cute nn, & goes great w/[name_m]Arthur[/name_m].

[name_f]Jane[/name_f]-I like it, but it doesn’t sparkle as much as [name_f]Miriam[/name_f]. I guess it’s really a little ‘plain [name_f]Jane[/name_f]’ for me.

[name_f]Rose[/name_f]-This is plain like [name_f]Jane[/name_f], but it’s also beautiful since it has such a nice imagery w/the flower. It’s very elegant on an adult, & [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] is super sweet for a girl. It’s great w/[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] too.

[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]-Beautiful. Smart & simple, yet it still sounds fresh.

[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]-This is cute, but maybe not as good as the others. [name_m]Just[/name_m] kind of cutesy.

I’m really no help since I like them all. [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] is my favorite though w/[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] & in general. I love [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] too, but [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] & [name_f]Rose[/name_f] sound best for siblings.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps a little. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] is my favorite, [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f] would be my second favorite.

Betram and [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] make a fabulous bro set!!

For a girl its a tie for me

[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] “[name_f]Minnie[/name_f]”
[name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]

I can’t thank you enough for all of your input and suggestions! It’s so helpful to have outside opinions. ”

Our longtime favorite has always been [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] - but [name_f]Jane[/name_f], [name_f]Rose[/name_f], and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] are all dear to us now as well. [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] wasn’t on our list until very recently. Again thank you all for your responses- they are very very helpful.

I think [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] goes really well with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m]!
