I’ve been lurking for some time now, hoping to be inspired and decide on a name. Now we are close to the due date ((20 days!!!)) and still haven’t decided on a name! The baby’s gender is a surprise, which seems to be adding to our indecision. So, I am turning to you now - please help us with some more suggestions!
We have an almost two year old son, [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Leonardo[/name] - we call him [name]Leo[/name]. We like the classic [name]Oliver[/name] combined with the Italian [name]Leonardo[/name] and would like his sibling’s name to have a similar feel to it.
Our last name begins with an A, has three syllables and is Spanish in origin.
For a boy - the only name we have on the table is [name]Jude[/name]. We love the name but we are not 100% committed to it and would like to have some other options. We are having a real hard time with the second name, but I would for it to have 3 or 4 syllables. For example, I like how [name]Jude[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] sounds, but we can’t use the name [name]Alexander[/name] - too many [name]Alejandro[/name]'s on my husband’s side of the family and we don’t want to continue that tradition! [name]Jude[/name] [name]Matteo[/name]?
For a girl, we liked [name]Audrey[/name] - but feel it is too common now. There are two [name]Audrey[/name]'s at my son’s day care. We love the name [name]Francesca[/name], but it is another name in the family, my side and my husband’s side, that we don’t want to pay tribute to. I loved the boy’s name [name]Ari[/name], but my husband wouldn’t consider it for a boy. He would consider it for a girl though and likes it as a nickname. So, I looked up girl’s names that begin with [name]Ari[/name] and found [name]Aria[/name]. Further looking led me to [name]Aria[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] as an option that we both really like, but wonder if [name]Aria[/name] is too different? It’s definitely not the classic [name]Audrey[/name] that we began with.
Okay, so now you have an idea where our thoughts are - what do you think and do you have any suggestions for us?! I thank you in advance for your help!
