sibling for Sam, Deacon, Vera and Shep

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! We need help with name ideas for baby #5, especially boy names. Our kids are are:
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_m]Robert[/name_m]
[name_m]Deacon[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] [name_m]Miles[/name_m]

Our current top girl choices are [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] ([name_f]Hattie[/name_f]) [name_f]Anne[/name_f], [name_f]Ada[/name_f] [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f], or [name_f]Annette[/name_f] ([name_f]Etta[/name_f]) mn? For boys, we literally have no ideas on first names, but possible family names to incorporate as a middle include: [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], or [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m].

Please help! Any ideas welcome!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

Your kids’ names are lovely!

Here are my thoughts:

Girls-

[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_m]Robert[/name_m]
[name_m]Deacon[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] [name_m]Miles[/name_m]

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] ([name_f]Hattie[/name_f]) [name_f]Anne[/name_f]-This could not be more perfect.

[name_f]Ada[/name_f] [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]-I like both of these names, but don’t love the repeating ‘d’ sound. It’s still perfectly nice though. I think that [name_f]Ada[/name_f] works very well w/your crew, but it may be a little more popular than you realize if that bothers you.

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] ([name_f]Etta[/name_f])-This is my grandma’s name! She just goes by [name_f]Annette[/name_f]. I like [name_f]Etta[/name_f], & it works well w/your kids’ names. I don’t know that it totally makes sense as a nn for [name_f]Annette[/name_f], but I think it works? The only other name I can think of is [name_f]Loretta[/name_f], which isn’t that pretty in my opinion. As for a mn, maybe-

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f]

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]

These are GREAT suggestions, thanks so much!! I’m really liking [name_u]Jude[/name_u], and loving that it’s a nickname to [name_m]Julius[/name_m] since that’s also a family name : )

I like [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] [name_f]Anne[/name_f] & [name_f]Annette[/name_f] [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f]
