Starting over... Could use some help!

Right was getting a bit stuck so am starting over with the long list again! So here it is:

Surname is [name]Matthews[/name]. Brother is [name]Sidney[/name] ([name]Sid[/name]). What do you think?

Thanks, [name]Rachel[/name]

With big brother [name]Sidney[/name], here are my favorites from your list:

[name]Oscar[/name] - love [name]Oscar[/name], especially with [name]Sidney[/name]. really handsome!
[name]Laurence[/name] - to me, [name]Laurence[/name] captures the same vibe as [name]Sidney[/name]. one concern may be the nickname since you like [name]Sid[/name], what would you call little brother [name]Laurence[/name]?
[name]Albert[/name] - I like [name]Albert[/name] but not my favorite on your list. [name]Albie[/name] and [name]Sid[/name] would be adorable though!

I would have a tough time choosing between these three!

My favorites with [name]Sidney[/name]:
[name]Rowan[/name] :!:
[name]Nicholas[/name] - eventhough it is a bit too classic with [name]Sidney[/name]

What do you think of [name]Amias[/name]?

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Rachel[/name],

[name]Rowan[/name] - love this with [name]Sidney[/name]. So glad it’s on a boys list!
[name]Morgan[/name] - again love that this is on a boys name list! [name]Just[/name] not sure about [name]Morgan[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]… although [name]Sid[/name] and [name]Mo[/name] are great.
[name]Oscar[/name] - Absolutely love this one.
[name]Harvey[/name] - not sure about pairing with [name]Sidney[/name]… [name]Just[/name] sounds a little awkward.
[name]Rupert[/name] - not sure I just see the bear! [name]Do[/name] like [name]Ruben[/name] though. What do you think?
[name]Albert[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this with [name]Sidney[/name]. Regardless of which nn you use it sounds great. [name]Sid[/name] and [name]Al[/name]/[name]Bert[/name]/[name]Albie[/name]/[name]Bertie[/name].
[name]Nicholas[/name] - not sure about this one. [name]Just[/name] seems a bit odd when paired with [name]Sidney[/name]
[name]Christian[/name] - see [name]Nicholas[/name]
[name]Peter[/name] - Like it! [name]Sid[/name] and [name]Pete[/name]!
[name]Eric[/name] - Like this too.
[name]Tobias[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this one too. [name]Sid[/name] and [name]Toby[/name] so cute!
[name]Joseph[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this too. [name]Sid[/name] and [name]Joe[/name]!
[name]Robin[/name] - cute but love others on your list more.

Again fabulous list! Good luck choosing… My favourites are [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Morgan[/name], [name]Oscar[/name], [name]Albert[/name], [name]Eric[/name], [name]Tobias[/name] and [name]Joseph[/name]!


  1. [name]Tobias[/name]
  2. [name]Rowan[/name]
  3. [name]Oscar[/name] or [name]Laurence[/name]

I like them all except for [name]Nicholas[/name] and Christians, which don’t seem to go well with [name]Sydney[/name] or with the rest of your list. Nice choices! :smiley:

[name]Oscar[/name] is my favorite!

I also love [name]Laurence[/name].

Good luck!

[name]Rowan[/name] is my favorite from the list. I also like [name]Christian[/name], [name]Laurence[/name], [name]Morgan[/name], and [name]Nicholas[/name].

Lots of great names on your list, the stand out for me is the wonderful [name]Rupert[/name]. I love the combo of [name]Rupert[/name] [name]James[/name] or [name]James[/name] [name]Rupert[/name].

However, I think that [name]Walter[/name] [name]Christian[/name] would be perfect with brother [name]Sidney[/name], [name]Walter[/name] and [name]Sidney[/name], wdyt?

Well, I know a little boy whose first name is ‘[name]Nicholas[/name]’ with the same last name as you!
My favorites from your list (and that also ‘go’ with big brother [name]Sidney[/name]'s first name) are:

  • [name]Oscar[/name]. It flows very nicely with your last name & has some great nicknames (Osc, Oscie, etc.)!
  • [name]Albert[/name]. I really having started to dig this name within the past year or so. It’s actually very regal, as I’m sure you know, and it also has really cute nicknames ([name]Albie[/name], [name]Al[/name], Albo, [name]Bert[/name], etc…).
  • [name]Rupert[/name]. I think this name goes swimmingly with [name]Sidney[/name]. Also, it is adorable for a baby boy & distinguished when that baby boy grows up, [name]IMO[/name]!

Thankyou for all the comments - they are very much appreciated!

ze-lynn - I’m afraid [name]Amias[/name] really isn’t our style but thanks for the suggestion.
[name]Dahlia[/name] - not too sure of [name]Ruben[/name]…
rollo - I do like [name]Walter[/name] thanks!

After your thoughts and husband filter (!), the list now looks like this:

Middles only:

Thankyou for your comments. Any thoughts on the updated list?


[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Harvey[/name] would be great paired with [name]Sidney[/name]. My second favourite would be [name]Tobias[/name] [name]Christian[/name]. [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Rupert[/name] and [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] would be ok too but [name]Morgan[/name], [name]Albert[/name], [name]Eric[/name] and [name]Walter[/name] just don’t seem right to me.
