Sibling for Keziah?

It will be another few weeks before we find out the gender of our next baby but I can’t help but think about names right now.

Our daughter is [name]Keziah[/name]. I still love her name so that might give an idea of our style. Most of our family has “K” names and those are what we are looking at so the new baby isn’t left out. I’d consider something that didn’t start with K only if it was perfect in all other ways.

Girls names:

[name]Kiara[/name] - my husband’s fave, I find it a bit frilly for my taste
[name]Keren[/name] - obvious match (being another daughter of [name]Job[/name]) but unsure about always being “[name]Karen[/name] with an e”.

Boys names:
[name]Kasimir[/name] - both my husband and I love the quirkiness of the name and the nickname “Kaz” but I am concerned that it’s a little too out there
[name]Kieran[/name] - an old favorite
[name]Kenelm[/name] - saw this on a recent blog post and have always wanted to honor my grandfather [name]Kenneth[/name] (husband hates the name [name]Kenneth[/name] but maybe he’ll like this?)

Thoughts? Other suggestions? Our last name is D**er, if that helps.

From your list, I like the boys names but I don’t like the girls names at all. Although the letter “K” is one of my least favourite letters, here are some other suggestions for you to consider for [name]Keziah[/name]'s sibling:

Katriel - Hebrew meaning “crowned by God”
Kaveri - [name]Indian[/name] from the sacred river

[name]Kiva[/name] - Hebrew “protected by God”
Korinna - Latin for a “spear-wielding woman”

I like [name]Keziah[/name]! [name]Kiara[/name] is nice, but the k spelling really ruins it for me. I much prefer the classic [name]Chiara[/name]. And I think [name]Keren[/name] would cause the problems you’re worried about. My favorite k-names for girls are [name]Kerensa[/name], [name]Kira[/name], [name]Katerina[/name], and Kateri, if you like any of those.
For boys, I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Kieran[/name].I actually like [name]Kenneth[/name] much more than [name]Kenelm[/name] ([name]Kenelm[/name] seems really awkward for me to say) but if your husband doesn’t like it, I guess it doesn’t matter. And [name]Kasimir[/name] is a little out there, at least for my taste. My favorite boy k-names are [name]Kieran[/name] (like I said), [name]Kian[/name], [name]Keenan[/name], and [name]Kai[/name].

wait, sorry. I thought you were asking about a spelling of [name]Keziah[/name]. oops. shows how much I read.

[name]Keziah[/name] is beautiful! I’ve always loved it, but it doesn’t fit with the other names I tend to like. One question, do you call her Kez or Kezzy?

I’m not wild about your girl choices–I actually really like [name]Keren[/name], but if you are trying to avoid spelling errors that will be a problem. Other thoughts:

[name]Kirsten[/name]–I have adored this name since the American Girl appeared in the early 90’s…
[name]Kora[/name]–don’t let people tell you this is spelled wrong, it comes from the Greek letter Kappa which can be transliterated either with a C or a K
[name]Kalliope[/name]–same thing

I’m a bit concerned that [name]Keziah[/name] and [name]Kasimir[/name] could sound alike–especially if they get called Kez and Kas. But, that is my favorite from that list. [name]How[/name] about

hmmmm, like pp K isn’t a letter that I typically collect names from…

I wonder if a name with a K in it somewhere with the same flavor as [name]Keziah[/name] would work. I’m thinking especially of [name]Ezekiel[/name], Elkanah, or even [name]Rebekah[/name].


I like a few of these - Kaveli and [name]Kiva[/name] are interesting.

[name]Glad[/name] to see some love for [name]Kieran[/name], it’s been a favorite of mine for a long time.

We call [name]Keziah[/name] either her full name or Kezzy and I admit that Kezzy and Kaz sound a little …too matchy?
