Sibling names for Jarod?

Hello. I have a 24 month old son named [name]Jarod[/name] and expecting my second child on [name]January[/name] 4th. My husband and I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl. We’ve settled on the name [name]Phoebe[/name] for a girl. And considering [name]Devin[/name] or [name]Brendan[/name] for a boy, but not 100% sold. We also need middle name suggestions. Thanks.

I’ve always liked the name [name]Jared[/name] (I prefer this spelling, but I assume [name]Jarod[/name] is pronounced the same and is simply a spelling variation). I don’t think [name]Devin[/name] or [name]Brendan[/name] are anywhere near as handsome - they are much trendier and bound to feel dated by the time he grows up. They also don’t have the same sophisticated feel. They are moreover being coopted as girls’ names (though, I don’t personally care for them as girls’ names either). [name]Jarod[/name] is a great name, strong yet soft, and I think you need a nice classic name with the same qualities.

Some suggestions:

If you really like a name ending with n, some other possibilities are:
[name]Quentin[/name] (this is a great name that goes really well with [name]Jarod[/name]. It also has a very similar sound to [name]Devin[/name])

[name]Jarod[/name] is a great name, and I love [name]Phoebe[/name]–but I agree with pp that [name]Brendan[/name] and [name]Devin[/name] seem like weaker choices for a boy.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I’m looking into [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Milo[/name], [name]Jonah[/name] and [name]Isaac[/name]. They all flow well with [name]Jarod[/name]. The other thing is, I don’t want a name that’s too popular. I was thinking of [name]Ethan[/name], but that is just too common. Any other ideas?

My suggestions:

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Vanessa[/name]
[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Alissa[/name]
[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Sara/name

[name]Devin[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Devin[/name] [name]Brandon[/name]
[name]Devin[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]

Good luck
