Sibling name for Eloise!

We are expecting a baby boy in [name_u]August[/name_u] and are a bit at odds with what to name him. I would love a classic sounding name to go well with our daughter [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f], but my husband really wants a Finnish name due to his heritage.

Our top contenders are [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] and [name_m]Eero[/name_m] (Finnish- pronounced arrow).
I also love [name_u]August[/name_u] but husband had vetoed it.
I love a name with a great nickname. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] goes by [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]. [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] we would call [name_u]Kit[/name_u].

Any suggestions on either other classic yet less common names, or Finnish names (I know, they’re tricky) that would sound nice with [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]?

Xx

LOVE [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] with [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]. [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] & [name_u]Kit[/name_u] would be simply adorable.

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] and [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] are adorable together. [name_m]Eero[/name_m] is cool too but I prefer [name_m]Atticus[/name_m], and [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] and [name_u]Kit[/name_u] are especially sweet as a pair. Some other ideas (not Finnish, sorry):

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f] is amazing! [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is super cute. At first I wasn’t all that excited when I read [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] (it’s not even popular, but I read it on this site a lot), but [name_u]Kit[/name_u] & [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] are very sweet together. I also like [name_m]Crispin[/name_m] & [name_u]Cricket[/name_u] (kind of a guilty pleasure :blush: ) nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u]. All that being said, I quite like [name_m]Eero[/name_m]. It’s really unique, but isn’t too terribly complicated. That would get my vote from the two.

I’m not sure about many Finnish names, but here are some other suggestions:

[name_m]Adrian[/name_m]/[name_m]Ace[/name_m]

[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]/[name_u]Alfie[/name_u]/[name_u]Freddie[/name_u]/[name_m]Ace[/name_m]

[name_m]Amos[/name_m]/[name_m]Ace[/name_m]

[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]/[name_m]Barney[/name_m]/[name_m]Barnes[/name_m]

[name_m]Bastian[/name_m]/Bash

[name_m]Basil[/name_m]/Bash

[name_m]Caspar[/name_m]/[name_m]Cas[/name_m]/Caspi

[name_m]Desmond[/name_m]/[name_m]Dex[/name_m]

[name_m]Edward[/name_m]/[name_u]Teddy[/name_u]/[name_m]Ned[/name_m]

[name_m]Ivan[/name_m]/[name_m]Ives[/name_m]

[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m]/[name_m]Mac[/name_m]

[name_m]Percival[/name_m]/[name_u]Percy[/name_u]/[name_u]Pip[/name_u]

[name_u]Peregrine[/name_u]/[name_u]Pip[/name_u]/[name_u]Penn[/name_u]

[name_m]Philipe[/name_m]/[name_u]Pip[/name_u]/[name_u]Flip[/name_u]

[name_m]Rafferty[/name_m]/[name_u]Rafe[/name_u]

[name_m]Winston[/name_m]/[name_u]Win[/name_u]

[name_m]Whitman[/name_m]/[name_u]Whit[/name_u]

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] are defintely my favorite

I also think alot of Norse names would work for you

[name_u]Bellamy[/name_u]
[name_m]Mathis[/name_m]
[name_u]Micah[/name_u]
[name_u]Eliya[/name_u]
[name_m]Odin[/name_m]
[name_m]Magnus[/name_m]
[name_m]Arne[/name_m]
[name_u]Darby[/name_u]
[name_m]Yannick[/name_m]
[name_m]Alec[/name_m]
[name_m]Noam[/name_m]
[name_u]Killian[/name_u]/Cylian

[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] [name_m]Eero[/name_m] sounds amazing to me. Flows well- it sounds like an alliteration but on paper it isn’t which makes it a really unique combo.

[name_f]Ellie[/name_f] and [name_u]Kit[/name_u] are really cute together and sound classic, whilst [name_m]Eero[/name_m] honours your husbands background.

Some on the Finnish list that would work in [name_f]English[/name_f]:

[name_m]Anton[/name_m]
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
[name_m]Leo[/name_m]
[name_m]Matias[/name_m]
[name_m]Milo[/name_m]
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]

I love this idea so much! Unfortunately we have a lot of pressure from my husbands family to continue their tradition of using the fathers name as the middle name, which is [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m].

Atticus [name_m]Eero[/name_m] [name_m]Johnathan[/name_m] Surname?

Depending on your surname it could sound amazing and please everyone :slight_smile:

This wont be what you looking for, but have to mention that there is a finnish version of [name_u]August[/name_u] = Aukusti :sweat_smile::yum:

Eero is a great underused name! [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] is very trendy not into it at all not a classic like [name_f]Eloise[/name_f].

Theodore
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]

I adore some Finnish names but it is a challenge. With your daughters name [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f] nn [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] (which is Gorgeous)

Oskar [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] ([name_m]Ozzy[/name_m], [name_f]Ellie[/name_f])
[name_m]Leon[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]
[name_m]Luka[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]
[name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]
[name_m]Tomas[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] ([name_f]Ellie[/name_f] and [name_m]Tommy[/name_m] )

I love [name_u]Kit[/name_u] but for some reason I cannot get into [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]… maybe too “to kill a mockingbird “ for me I don’t know. If you love it go for it
