Sibling for Tess and Maeve

Help! I have two girls already:

Theresa [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] - we call her [name_f]Tess[/name_f]
and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_u]Gray[/name_u]

We are not finding out the gender. I prefer traditional names, and we have an Irish last name (though located in the US).

For a girl I currently like [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] or [name_f]Isla[/name_f]. (Lost on a middle name). [name_f]Do[/name_f] you prefer one of these or is there something else that you think would fit?

For a boy, I very much like my grandfather’s name but fear it may be too unusual. His name is [name_u]Park[/name_u]. Does anyone think that works??? Totally open to suggestions!

Thank you so much in advance!!!

I think [name_f]Isla[/name_f] is mor modern & trendy & doesn’t for the timeless, traditional vibe your other girls have. :slight_smile: I’d go [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] out of those two.

I love [name_u]Park[/name_u]! It’s sharp and clear and connects him to his grandfather. I’d pair it with a longer m name:
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Jefferson[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Sylvester[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]

Gemma is lovely too ~ maybe

Gemma [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]

I really like [name_u]Park[/name_u]! If your last name is at least two syllables I’m sure it would go really well and because [name_u]Parker[/name_u] is a well established name, I think [name_u]Park[/name_u] would work well. I like both [name_f]Isla[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] but [name_f]Isla[/name_f] has been so popular that I think I would go with [name_f]Gemma[/name_f], although it likely depends on where you live.

Hi there.

Tess & [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] are so beautiful together. And I think that [name_u]Park[/name_u] is cool! It totally fits, & I love how it honors your grandfather. It is super unusual, but it’s not weird, you know?

Gemma & [name_f]Isla[/name_f] are both great names. I like [name_f]Isla[/name_f] slightly more, but it’s sooo popular. Does that bother you?

Tess and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] are such a sweet sibset! [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Isla[/name_f] are both lovely, but I would pick [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]; it’s sweet, energetic, and just the right amount of sparkly! I love it with your older daughters’ names. [name_f]Isla[/name_f] is very pretty but feels a little bit less distinctive because it’s gotten so popular recently.

[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_u]Wynn[/name_u]

I think [name_u]Park[/name_u] definitely works! There’s also [name_u]Parker[/name_u] if you’re looking for something a little more common, but just-[name_u]Park[/name_u] is punchy and cool and interesting (and I like it quite a bit better with your sibset!). I agree with @fergoski that I prefer it with something longer in the middle.

[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]

I prefer [name_u]Parker[/name_u] as an alternative to [name_u]Park[/name_u]. I love [name_f]Isla[/name_f]!

…you are an amazing namer. I think your daughter’s names are stunning and I love all three names you have picked out. Please go with [name_u]Park[/name_u] if it’s a boy! It connects him to family, it’s easy to say spell and read, and it’s unique and so handsome.

For a girl, I do like [name_f]Isla[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]. [name_f]My[/name_f] gut reaction is to go with [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] as [name_f]Isla[/name_f] is so popular now, and growing in popularity, and will have pronunciation issues, but [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] may face a little of that as well due to the popularity of [name_f]Emma[/name_f] (and it’s pronounced differently in Spanish which is fine because it’s also really pretty).

Best of luck! Go with your gut because it has served you well thus far!

I think [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] is perfect with you daughters’ names. And whilst I can always appreciate an honour name, I would personally prefer this one in the middle spot. How about these:

Sebastian [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Alastair[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Oliver[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Xavier[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Otto[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Winston[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Eliot[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Remy[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Leopold[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Orson[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Xander[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]
[name_m]Raphael[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u]

Or you could use [name_u]Parker[/name_u] as a way to honour your grandfather?

Gemma is lovely with your girls

Gemma [name_f]Celeste[/name_f], [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]

I’d also suggest [name_f]Amelie[/name_f], [name_f]Viola[/name_f] and [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]

Park is pretty cool though you could do [name_u]Parker[/name_u] if you’re worried about it being too out there

Firstly congrats!

With the boys I think [name_u]Park[/name_u] is cool it’s clear, sleek and dignified. If your surname is two syllables + then it will definitely work. Also the family connection is brilliant. You could use [name_u]Parker[/name_u] which would honour your Grandfather but is more of a established name.
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Abraham[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Christopher[/name_m]

[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_u]Park[/name_u] [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m]

As for the girls I do like [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] she’s sweet and happy sounding. I think [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] works with [name_f]Theresa[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Tess[/name_f]’ and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f].

Tess, [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], & [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] are my favorite from your list

Parker would fit better as a first put [name_u]Park[/name_u] would make a lovely middle name. I struggle with names that end up sounding like commands (IE: [name_m]Pierce[/name_m], [name_u]Chase[/name_u], etc)

Love [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] with [name_f]Tess[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]!

Park is a bit unusual but I don’t think it’s weird or unusable.

I like [name_u]Park[/name_u]. It sounds quite unique. Also, I prefer [name_f]Gemma[/name_f].

I like both [name_f]Isla[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f], but my first thought with your girls’ names was [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], which I love.

And I like [name_u]Park[/name_u] for a boy, it’s unusual but similar enough to more familiar names that it doesn’t feel too out there.

Good luck! :four_leaf_clover:

Thank you all so much! This was really helpful and I love some of the middle name suggestions. I really appreciate your feedback! :heartpulse::blue_heart:

I love [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]. But for something a little different, not too out there, and definitely a fit with [name_f]Tess[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], I suggest [name_f]Fina[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f].

I have always had a name crush on [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]! It’s not used so often in the US but is a name everyone knows and can pronounce easily. And how fun are the nicknames [name_f]Gem[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemmy[/name_f]?

Go for [name_u]Park[/name_u] if you like it! We have an Icem for a great-grandfather, also my dad and brother’s middle name. We are the first ones to go back to the first name and get only positive reviews from it. People always ask about it and it feels good to talk about family! People may not ask about [name_u]Parker[/name_u] but they might about [name_u]Park[/name_u] and that is fun :grin:

I love [name_u]Park[/name_u]! I don’t think it’s too unusual at all and is actually a refreshing change from [name_u]Parker[/name_u]. It sounds great with [name_f]Tess[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] too. Simple, but masculine. Of your girl choices, I think [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] works best! [name_f]Isla[/name_f] is a gorgeous name but I think with [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] it would make the sibset too soft and make [name_f]Tess[/name_f] stand out.
