Sister for big brother Nash

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! When I gave birth to our son we didn’t have any names we loved that we were choosing between so he remained nameless for 3 WEEKS!! Now that we are having a girl I am really trying to avoid that and would love to take at least two names to choose from after we meet her.
That being said my husband and I are having a hard time agreeing on names and finding ones that we like that a family member or friend hasn’t used yet.
We both like short, not super popular but not weird and easy to spell/pronounce. I tend to go for more vintage names but my husband does not like any of my top picks.

My top 5 are:
[name_f]Cora[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f], [name_f]Mira[/name_f], [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_f]Vada[/name_f].

We both really like [name_f]Tessa[/name_f], but it is unfortunately the name of a friends daughter. We only see them during baseball season (play on a team together) but I still think we are too close to use it. We also both like [name_f]Hailey[/name_f], but we both have cousins with that name already.
The only name that we are able to somewhat agree on is [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]. It fits my description, but I’m not in love with it and have never been too fond of names with the letters z, x or a weird y thrown in in places of i.

I feel like I have gone through and looked at every name possibility out there more than once and that names are starting to blur together! I’m hoping that some fresh eyes will maybe be able to come up with something I haven’t seen yet and get my husband to agree!

Sorry for the long post, [name_f]TIA[/name_f]!

This may help…


I love [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]!

Other suggestions,

My favorites are
[name_m]Nash[/name_m] & [name_f]Pippa[/name_f]
[name_m]Nash[/name_m] & [name_f]Emme[/name_f]
[name_m]Nash[/name_m] & [name_f]Sofie[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_f]Mira[/name_f].

[name_m]Nash[/name_m] and…

Thanks for the suggestions! I really like [name_f]Elise[/name_f] but my sister in laws sister has a daughter named [name_f]Elise[/name_f]. She doesn’t live in the same town but I don’t know if the name would still be off the table or not. I’ll have to think about that one

I love all of your names, I think Cora and Nash would be great together

Here are a few that might inspire…


What are some of his top names?

Instead of [name_f]Tessa[/name_f], maybe…

Instead of [name_f]Hailey[/name_f]

After you having such a difficult time naming [name_m]Nash[/name_m], may I say that I adore the name [name_m]Nash[/name_m]. Great choice! Suggestions…


Congratulations on your baby girl!

If you haven’t seen them already, these threads might give some ideas (though I realise they’re more lists of names that might blur together:

If more names are not helpful just now, could I ask if you have any particular names (or styles of name) in mind for middle names? That might help us suggest first names that seem to flow well.

Or maybe you could mention a few names your husband likes but you don’t, so we could get a sense of what he might agree to? If he hasn’t suggested any names, it might be worth asking him to write down 5 or 10 suggestions, and to tell you what he likes about them. It might also be worthwhile asking what he dislikes about the names you’ve suggested - it sounds like there’s a lot of things you agree on with names, but clarifying what you disagree about is helpful too.

I love [name_f]Cora[/name_f]. [name_f]Miri[/name_f] is cute too!

What about…


That’s another problem! I suggest names almost daily to see if I can get a feel for what style of names he is drawn to and he shoots the majority of them down and doesn’t suggest any names on his end :frowning: So far the only names I can get him to agree on are [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] (which I’m not fond of) and [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] and [name_f]Hailey[/name_f] (which we can’t use) So frustrating!

I like [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], but got a big no from the husband :frowning:

We have a family name from his side for my son so I want to use a family name from my side for our daughter.

I would love to use any of these names for the middle name:
[name_u]June[/name_u] (my mom’s mn which he’s said no to as a first)
[name_f]Anna[/name_f] (my mn)
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] (oma’s fn)
[name_f]Constance[/name_f] (mom’s fn)

I really like [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] though it is becoming popular. Also i adore [name_u]Cedar[/name_u] for a girl!!! Others:
[name_f]Viva[/name_f] - pronounced VEE’-vuh.

What about these? Are there any that are getting near your style? [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Anna[/name_f], [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], and [name_f]Constance[/name_f] should all be fairly easy to pair with a FN. I’ve just added them to the names below to give you an idea.
