I have two step-children, [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] (nn Lottie) and [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] who my husband had with his wife (who sadly passed away).
We’re expecting a child together, however are really struggling with names.
For a boy, we like [name_u]Laurence[/name_u] (nn Laurie), [name_m]Chester[/name_m] or [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] (nn Theo/Teddy), but are struggling with middle names since we both want to keep with the alliteration. I’m not fully sold on [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] since it’s quite popular at the moment and although I’m American, we live in the UK and [name_m]Chester[/name_m] sounds slightly like the start of ‘chest of drawers’ which might not work.
For girls, we both really like Clover, but it doesn’t massively fit and I’m not sure what we’d do for any subsequent sibling names. We like [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] as well, however [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] both have the nickname Tillie, so it might not work. [name_u]Florence[/name_u] is an option as well, but we couldn’t do [name_u]Florence[/name_u] and Laurence.
I’ve always liked the idea of [name_u]Ronnie[/name_u] as a name, for either gender, but am not fond of [name_m]Ronald[/name_m] or [name_f]Veronica[/name_f] - so any suggestions related to that would be appreciated.
Overall, we want less used, vintage-y names that can work well in a sibset.
Thanks in advance!
