Sister for Auberon?

I’ve recently fallen in love with the name [name]Auberon[/name]. I like [name]Oberon[/name], because of the O, but I like the literary references that [name]Auberon[/name] has a bit more (he’s a poet in the novel [name]Little[/name], Big by [name]John[/name] Crowley).

I’m considering;

[name]Auberon[/name] [name]Lysander[/name] [name]Henry[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Peregrine[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Hugo[/name]

A lot of name, I know! But I like grandiose yet proper names, especially when they’re partially obscure. I like [name]Gwendolen[/name] and [name]Daphne[/name] but I’m not sure if they are “old” enough to match [name]Auberon[/name]. Help, please!

ETA: I found inspiration for the above names whilst flipping through some [name]Edward[/name] Gorey books.

If you prefer [name]Oberon[/name], and like literary connections, remember [name]Oberon[/name] was a fairy in A Midsummer [name]Night[/name]'s [name]Dream[/name]!
With the whole [name]Shakespeare[/name] thing, I think [name]Lysander[/name]'s a bit much with [name]Oberon[/name]/[name]Auberon[/name]. But I love the latter two combos :slight_smile:

I agree that [name]Gwendolen[/name] and [name]Daphne[/name] are lovely (particularly [name]Daphne[/name], I need to find a place for that on my list again!), and I also agree that they just don’t quite match [name]Auberon[/name]. I think, for me, it’s because they feel so much more familiar, whereas [name]Auberon[/name] seems more “faraway”, if that makes sense, like a name needing revival. However, I can definitely see them in a set with the [name]Oberon[/name] spelling. The two different spellings give different sibling ideas for me.

[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Jessamine[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Valentina[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Hermione[/name] (maybe to close to [name]Hermia[/name], same issue as [name]Lysander[/name]?)
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Eleonora[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Phyllida[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Elspeth[/name]
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Clementine[/name]

[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Verity[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Amabel[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Flavia[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Audrey[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & Elowen
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Freya[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Marina[/name]
[name]Oberon[/name] & [name]Helena[/name]

I agree with genevie on [name]Lysander[/name] - [name]Auberon[/name] [name]Lysander[/name] [name]Henry[/name] is a gorgeous, incredibly dashing combo, but I think it’s too much A Midsummer [name]Night[/name]'s [name]Dream[/name] for one name. I like both of your other two combos a lot, but I think that my favorite of [name]Auberon[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Hugo[/name].

Thanks, genevie and nono! I forgot about the [name]Lysander[/name]/[name]Oberon[/name] connection, silly of me. I quite like [name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Hermione[/name], [name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Felicity[/name], also [name]Thisbe[/name], [name]Sybella[/name], [name]Valentina[/name] and [name]Artemisia[/name], although I’d make it [name]Artemis[/name]. :slight_smile:

Roman[/name]]I agree with nono and genevie, [name]Auberon[/name] [name]Lysander[/name] [name]Henry[/name] is a bit too much, but a lovely combo nonetheless.
I really like [name]Auberon[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Hugo[/name], but I simply adore [name]Auberon[/name] [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Peregrine[/name]!
I also agree with genevie in saying that whilst [name]Gwendolen[/name] and [name]Daphne[/name] are beautiful, they just don’t seem right with [name]Auberon[/name].
Like genevie, I also get different sibling ideas with the different spelling of [name]Auberon[/name]/[name]Oberon[/name].
[name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Sybella[/name] and [name]Auberon[/name] & [name]Artemisia[/name] are both so lovely!
