Skyler or Raleigh?

What sounds like a better sister name for a little boy named [name_u]Parker[/name_u]? The parents are adamant on getting a unisex name as well for their little girl. [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to suggest other names to complete the sibset! :slight_smile:

I’d say [name_u]Skyler[/name_u].

Definitely [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] :slight_smile:

I wouldn’t be sure how to pronounce [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]. Some additional ideas:


With [name_u]Parker[/name_u], I prefer [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] - not positive how to pronounce [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] and it doesn’t look very unisex next to [name_u]Parker[/name_u].

Other ideas:


I like [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] just because it’s more unique than [name_u]Skyler[/name_u]. I know a 60 year old man named [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]. It’s a great name! [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] makes me think of a 90’s baby.

Of the two I prefer [name_u]Skylar[/name_u]. Nms but it’s cute.
Few others:

[name_u]Skyler[/name_u] for sure!

[name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]. It has friendly, down to earth quality. Whereas [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] feels very plastic and insubstantial to me.


Other suggestions :

[name_u]Robin[/name_u] / [name_f]Robyn[/name_f]
[name_u]Courtney[/name_u] / [name_f]Kourtney[/name_f]
[name_m]Codi[/name_m] / Kodi
[name_u]Danny[/name_u] /[name_f]Danni[/name_f] / [name_u]Dani[/name_u]

I prefer [name_u]Skyler[/name_u]!

[name_u]Skyler[/name_u] all the way!

[name_u]Skyler[/name_u]. I don’t like it but it’s better than [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u].

I prefer [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]. I had no problems pronouncing it as it is the name of a city in [name_u]North[/name_u] [name_f]Carolina[/name_f].

Another [name_u]Skylar[/name_u] vote, even though I prefer it on a boy.

Honestly [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] doesn’t read particularly unisex to me, if that’s the overall goal. Not that I don’t think it is, it’s just that based on current naming patterns, I would assume they were a girl. It also kind of sounds like [name_u]Riley[/name_u] with an accent.

I don’t like the double “er” ending, sounds almost like twins.

I’m assuming [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] is pronounce “ray-lee”
I like that better with [name_u]Parker[/name_u]

[name_u]Rylee[/name_u] would also work

I prefer [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]. I agree with the pp who said [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] feels more substantial and [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] more plastic. [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u] is much better with [name_u]Parker[/name_u] too.

Definitely [name_u]Skyler[/name_u].


I like [name_u]Raleigh[/name_u], pronounced RAH-lee. I knew a woman with this name, and she carried it elegantly.

Definitely [name_u]Skyler[/name_u] for me.
