Sibling for Beverly?

We are most likely only having one child but I do like to daydream about a sibling name!

Our daughter’s name is [name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f], her first name is after my husband’s mom and [name_f]Hope[/name_f] is a family name on my side of the family.

[name_u]Beverly[/name_u] is not a name that was ever on my list but I grew to like it while pregnant and it 100% suits her! If we had another child I would want to stick to the kind of 1930s, 40s, 50s era or around then. I love that it’s kind of an “unexpected” name but still familiar to people.

Middle names would be for family - for a boy it would definitely be [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]. For a girl, possibilities are [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_u]Kay[/name_u], [name_u]Leigh[/name_u], or [name_f]Nora[/name_f].

Some possible names that are currently on my list for this baby who will probably never exist are:

BOY:
[name_m]Ralph[/name_m]

GIRL:
[name_f]Carolyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Elaine[/name_f]
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]
[name_f]Melinda[/name_f]
[name_f]Joanna[/name_f]

Does anyone have other ideas to go with [name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f]?

[name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f] is so retro :white_heart:

I think [name_f]Elaine[/name_f], [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_f]Joanna[/name_f] sound fabulous with [name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f]. [name_f]My[/name_f] favourite from this trio is [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] I absolutely love [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]. I also like the y ending linking the girls up. I like the idea of [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. I think [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] is fine but not completely cohesive with [name_u]Beverly[/name_u] I just wouldn’t pair them together.

You’ve had a few suggestions so count any repeats as me being in agreement with the berries

[name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f] and…

[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] ~ I know you have [name_f]Carolyn[/name_f] but I just think [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] works better she’s more classic
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Nancy[/name_f]

I feel like your list is chock full of great options for Beverly’s sibling! While I love the name [name_f]Joanna[/name_f], that’s the one that fits the least in my opinion. Probably because it’s had more continuous use than the others.

[name_u]Beverly[/name_u] [name_f]Hope[/name_f] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] [name_f]Nora[/name_f] was what stood out to me.
[name_m]Ralph[/name_m] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m] is a bit ‘sharp’ to me.
I’m not too sure of other suggestions but the first thing that came to mind was using another R name and the one that came to me was [name_m]Reginald[/name_m] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m].
