Thinking of names for [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Jane[/name]'s sister. I like classic names that are not overused. I love [name]Phoebe[/name]'s name but I think I am looking to go a bit more unusual this time. That said, flowery and fanciful doesn’t usually appeal to me. I tend to like more no-nonsense, if you know what I mean. Here’s what I’ve got.
[name]Margo[/name] (this was long thought to be the ONE. Now, I am wondering if it sounds fresh enough, esp. since a recent spate of Margarets and Maggies in my circle.)
[name]Sybil[/name] (this might be my new fave. We have a two syllable last name starting with S, and I have always liked alliterative names. Also like the Greek origin sharing with [name]Phoebe[/name]. And this definitely fits the bill for not running into other same-named babies at the supermarket!)
[name]Helena[/name] (Great grandmother is [name]Helen[/name], so that’s nice. [name]Don[/name]'t like the upward trending that seems to be going on.)
[name]Blythe[/name] ([name]Love[/name] the name, don’t know how I feel about it with [name]Phoebe[/name]. Seems kind of random.)
[name]Sylvia[/name] (This was considered when we named [name]Phoebe[/name]. I like it some days better than others.)
Middle name will be for DH’s grandmother, as [name]Jane[/name] came from mine. Therefore, I could go with [name]Jeanne[/name] or [name]Eugenie[/name], depending on the flow with the first name.
What do you think?
