Sibling for Auden and Reed?

In four weeks (!!!), my daughter [name]Auden[/name] and my son [name]Reed[/name] will have a new sibling.

I’ve decided to consult the all-knowing nameberry board, because I am a big believer that sibling names should work together well. [name]Auden[/name] and [name]Reed[/name] were the perfect pair for me, with the relatively even popularity, ending in consonants, etc. I figured I would be done with two, and didn’t plan to continue this naming obsession. Now I’m totally stuck. We don’t know the sex, which makes it even harder. I literally have NO. IDEA. for a name.

To give you an idea of our naming style:

The name for our four-year-old, [name]Auden[/name], (full name: [name]Auden[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Anne[/name]) was an obvious choice for us. I met my hubby while reading a W.H. [name]Auden[/name] collection in Central [name]Park[/name] - [name]Auden[/name] was both of our life long favorite poets. We love classic names, and my husband is Australian, so the middle name was after the song ‘Waltzing [name]Matilda[/name]’. [name]Anne[/name] is my mother’s name.

[name]Reed[/name] (22 months old, full name: [name]Reed[/name] Wilde [name]Robert[/name]) we got from the street we first lived on together, [name]Reade[/name] [name]Street[/name], in New [name]York[/name] (we didn’t like that spelling, but still wanted to pay tribute). If [name]Reed[/name] had been a girl, he would have been [name]Ever[/name] (unusual, I know. But we loved the name, we still love it, and it may still be in the running, but it just doesn’t seem to fit with the sibling set any more). His middle name, Wilde, is for [name]Oscar[/name] Wilde, another favorite of ours in the literary world. [name]Robert[/name] is for my husband’s father.

Any suggestions?

If you wanted to skip that all that babble up there, basically, I’m looking for a name that goes with [name]Auden[/name] and [name]Reed[/name]. Any level of popularity - try me! I’m desperate! I don’t have any ideas and I’m due on [name]October[/name] 1st. Yes, I’m freaking out a little. : ]

[name]Hi[/name] :slight_smile:

I think [name]Auden[/name] and [name]Reed[/name] are wonderful, creative names! And I love the literature theme you’ve got going on, Wilde is a personal favourite of mine:) So some ideas:

Staying with a literary theme (I think most of these work for either gender):

[name]Austen[/name] would be great too but it might be too close to [name]Auden[/name]…

Other ideas:
[name]Everett[/name] - since you said you liked [name]Ever[/name]…
[name]Clay[/name] or [name]Cole[/name]

See any you like? [name]Hope[/name] that helped:) Good [name]Luck[/name]!
