Sibling name for Jack and Ruby

We have a four and a half year old son – [name_m]John[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] – who goes by [name_m]Jack[/name_m]. We also have a nearly three year old daughter – [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Holland[/name_u].

My husband likes the names [name_f]Vera[/name_f] and [name_f]Grace[/name_f]. I’m not in love with anything so far, but I like [name_u]Harper[/name_u], [name_u]Quinn[/name_u], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], and [name_f]Clover[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Chloe[/name_f]).

Help! I’d love to use a family middle name. Those options would be [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Louise[/name_f], or [name_f]Mavis[/name_f]/[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]. Our last name starts with L and is rather long.

I like either [name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] or [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] for your sibset.

[name_m]Jack[/name_m] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] are vintage, stylish, fairly traditional names so I don’t think something androgynous and “21st century” like [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] or [name_u]Harper[/name_u] fit fit at all. These names would be a major style departure I think.

[name_f]Vera[/name_f], [name_f]Grace[/name_f], and [name_f]Olive[/name_f] would be great choices! I like [name_f]Clover[/name_f], too, but I wonder if it’s too unusual in comparison. Calling her [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] would eliminate the issue, though. (I also think [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Louise[/name_f], [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] or [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] would work great as first names!)

My vote goes to [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], followed by [name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] and [name_f]Clover[/name_f] “[name_f]Chloe[/name_f]” [name_f]Louise[/name_f].
