Sibling name ideas for Helen & John Thomas

Expecting our third, a boy in [name_u]December[/name_u]. We have a 3 year old [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and a 1 year old [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], who we exclusively call JT. Their names are combinations of family and old-fashioned/classic 1920s names. So far, we are liking [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] (nn Freddie) , [name_u]Edward[/name_u] (nn [name_m]Ed[/name_m] or Eddie) , [name_m]Franklin[/name_m] (nn [name_u]Frankie[/name_u] or Frank) , and [name_m]Archie[/name_m].

We also like [name_u]Arthur[/name_u], [name_u]Julian[/name_u], [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] but can’t use them because either friends/family have already claimed or they don’t go well with our last name (Burns).

Which of these do you like best and any other suggestions are welcome!! Thanks in advance.

I love [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] and [name_u]Edward[/name_u] with [name_f]Helen[/name_f] & [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]!

I love your kids’ names!! Especially seeing [name_f]Helen[/name_f] on a little one :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes: just gorgeous

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] is probably my favorite from your list! Any repeats are seconds; I haven’t read the other replies.

[name_f]Helen[/name_f], JT, and …

[name_u]Laurence[/name_u] / [name_u]Laurie[/name_u]

I think it would be adorable if you named him [name_u]James[/name_u]. I know the name is very common but I think the nickname [name_u]Jem[/name_u] outweighs that. [name_u]Jem[/name_u] is sooo cute. You could have middle name [name_u]Edward[/name_u] to continue honouring your family.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] your kids names!

I’ll suggest

[name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] nn [name_m]Lance[/name_m]
[name_m]Reginald[/name_m] nn [name_u]Reggie[/name_u]
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] nn Mack/Mal
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] nn [name_u]Harry[/name_u]

I love Frederick/Freddie Edward/Eddie and Franklin/Frankie with your older kids! Great names!

I love [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] or [name_u]Edward[/name_u]

Other ideas (sorry for repeats…)

[name_u]Charles[/name_u] “Charlie”
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] “Oz / Ozzy”
[name_u]Laurence[/name_u] “Laurie / Ren”
[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] “Lenny”
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m] “Alfie / [name_m]Fred[/name_m] / Freddie”
[name_m]Wilfred[/name_m] “Wilf / [name_u]Will[/name_u] / Fred…”
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m] “Vinnie”
[name_u]Sidney[/name_u] “Sid”

I agree, I think [name_u]James[/name_u] would be a great option for this sibset. It is a one syllable J name like his brother, plus the nn [name_u]Jem[/name_u] is one of my favorites. I think [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_u]Edward[/name_u] or [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Franklin[/name_m] would make for a very handsome boy’s name. :grin:

[name_m]Archie[/name_m] [name_u]Julian[/name_u]

Congratulations :blue_heart:

[name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] & [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] feel so classic and I think you have a great list to work with.
I really like [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] & [name_u]Edward[/name_u] with [name_f]Helen[/name_f] & [name_u]John[/name_u]. I think my favourite is [name_u]Edward[/name_u] I just really like the simplicity of [name_u]Edward[/name_u] the name feels very classic and visually looks great in your sibling set.

Suggestions: [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m], [name_m]Vincent[/name_m], [name_u]William[/name_u], [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_m]Simon[/name_m], [name_m]Peter[/name_m], [name_m]Calvin[/name_m] & [name_u]Daniel[/name_u]


Also, I love Casper/Kasper as an alternative to [name_u]Jasper[/name_u].

[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] sounds great but boy is it common! There are 3 Freddie’s in my son’s class alone. If that doesn’t bother you.
I think the following names sound great with [name_u]John[/name_u] and [name_f]Helen[/name_f].


[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] and [name_m]Franklin[/name_m] are both great with [name_f]Helen[/name_f] and [name_u]John[/name_u]! Knowing [name_u]John[/name_u] goes pretty exclusively by JT makes me feel [name_m]Archie[/name_m] is a strong choice here too.

Some other names you may like:
[name_m]Alphonse[/name_m] (like [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] he could go by Alfie)

[name_u]Edward[/name_u] [name_u]Theo[/name_u] “Ed”
[name_u]Edward[/name_u] [name_m]Casper[/name_m]
[name_u]Edward[/name_u] [name_u]William[/name_u]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u] “Freddie”
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_u]Ennis[/name_u]

I’m a big fan of [name_u]Edward[/name_u] NN [name_m]Ed[/name_m]. I may be partial to it because that NN is within my own family, but the full name is [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] in mine. I’ve always thought [name_u]Edward[/name_u] was handsome and the NN is unique because no one really uses it anymore. [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is similar to [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] but different, and I like how it is short to match your son John’s short name. It is also giving me vintage yet modern vibes like JT gives me.
