Simple, but unheard of

We are expecting baby number 3 and are really stuck for names. We are not finding out the gender until birth so need ideas for both boys and girls! Our two boys are [name_u]Enzi[/name_u] and [name_u]Jemmy[/name_u] (James).

After searching for the last 4 months, I think we have finally nailed down what we are looking for. Both of our boys names are virtually unheard of by most people, but they are simple, easy to pronounce and easy to spell. We have come up with tons of names we like, but often they just don’t feel right with our two boys names, they may be too “normal” or common, but also don’t want something that they are constantly going to be correcting people. We have finally nailed down a few top contenders, but we are not 100% on any of them. We were 100% set very early for both of our boys (even before they were conceived!). I would love to go to the hospital with 2-3 options for each gender.

Middle name for a boy would 90% be [name_m]Dominic[/name_m] and for girls it would likely be either [name_u]Kay[/name_u], [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] or [name_f]Irene[/name_f]. No need for names to have the “y/ie” sounding ending to match our boys.

Thanks for your ideas!
