Sibling for Cleopatra Anne

Hi all,

We’re planning on bringing another baba into this world but we are stumped for names.

Last time we were set on [name_f]Cleopatra[/name_f] [name_u]Anne[/name_u] from the start as the name has lots of meaning to us and it fits her perfectly. One thing we didn’t anticipate was finding a name to match if another were to come along.

Alas here we are in a pickle with no clue on a name for baby 2.

We love history and one of the main reasons we chose [name_f]Cleopatra[/name_f] is because she was a strong female leader.

If [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] was a boy we were considering [name_m]Hercules[/name_m] but it doesn’t seem to fit with [name_f]Cleopatra[/name_f] now.

Open to any and all suggestions.

Thank you,
EJC

I would aim for a name that compliments in a few ways, but not necessarily in every way. It gives you the freedom to consider more names than you would’ve otherwise and hopefully closer to finding a name you love. The most obvious direction would be a name with historical or mythological meaning, but you could also disregard that and look for names that have a similar length and striking quality.

Here are some options you might like, I’ve also made some nickname suggestions: [name_m]Silvius[/name_m], [name_m]Philomon[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Phil[/name_u]’, [name_m]Lazarus[/name_m], [name_m]Zephyrin[/name_m], [name_m]Erasmus[/name_m], [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] ’ [name_u]Perry[/name_u]’, [name_m]Demetrius[/name_m], [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Iggy[/name_m]’, [name_m]Titus[/name_m], [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Rafa[/name_u]’, [name_m]Magnus[/name_m], [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m], [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m], [name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Nic[/name_u]’, Amadaes, [name_m]Marius[/name_m], [name_m]Romulus[/name_m], [name_m]Pericles[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Perry[/name_u]’, [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Barney[/name_m]’ or ‘[name_m]Baz[/name_m]’, [name_m]Zebedee[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Zeb[/name_m]’ or ‘[name_m]Zed[/name_m]’, [name_u]Thaddeus[/name_u] ‘[name_m]Tad[/name_m]’, [name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m], [name_m]Darius[/name_m], [name_m]Tycho[/name_m],

Artemisia ‘[name_f]Tess[/name_f]’, Olympias ‘[name_u]Ollie[/name_u]’ or ‘[name_f]Pia[/name_f]’, [name_f]Eurydice[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Edie[/name_f]’, [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Thea[/name_f]’ or ‘[name_f]Dora[/name_f]’, [name_f]Minerva[/name_f] ’ [name_f]Minnie[/name_f]’, [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] ‘[name_u]Tavi[/name_u]’ ,[name_u]Phaedra[/name_u] ‘[name_f]Faye[/name_f]’, [name_f]Euphemia[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Effie[/name_f]’, [name_f]Zelda[/name_f], [name_f]Demetria[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Demi[/name_f]’, [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] ‘[name_m]Augie[/name_m]’, [name_f]Gaia[/name_f], [name_f]Electra[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Elle[/name_f]’ or ‘[name_f]Etta[/name_f]’, [name_f]Philomena[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Fia[/name_f]’ or ‘[name_f]Mina[/name_f]’, [name_f]Lucretia[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]’, [name_f]Agata[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Aggie[/name_f]’, [name_f]Geneva[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Eva[/name_f]’ or ‘[name_f]Gia[/name_f]’, [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Maggie[/name_f]’, [name_f]Raphaela[/name_f], [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Fina[/name_f]’, [name_f]Thomasina[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Tia[/name_f]’
