Thinking of adding to my sibset....

It’s about time to make a decision about baby number 3, so being a name nerd, that’s the first thing I think of.

We have two boys, ®”ex and Mil0. I’m trying to find names that go well with this sibset. For boys, clearly I like short names, or names than can be shortened. For girls, I like names that aren’t stuffy, simple, but not necessarily mainstream. If my boys had been girls, they would have been [name_f]Ruthie[/name_f] and either [name_f]Luna[/name_f] or [name_f]Bea[/name_f], respectively.

Names I like are: [name_m]Amos[/name_m], [name_u]Ellis[/name_u], [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] ([name_u]Gus[/name_u]),
[name_m]Shepard[/name_m] and [name_m]Ansel[/name_m]

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], [name_f]Nora[/name_f], and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] for girls.

Any other suggestions? If we add a third, I expect it will be our last and naming is by far my favorite part of this whole process, so I want to enjoy it. Thanks :slight_smile:

®”ex and Mil0 are brilliant btw!!

I love [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] and [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] from your list.

Some other ideas
[name_m]Cormac[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Mac[/name_m]’

I really like [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] from your girls list

Some ideas


I really like [name_u]Toby[/name_u] and [name_m]Bram[/name_m]! And I wish I could use [name_f]Olive[/name_f]!

Hello! You have a wonderful sibset. I’ll stick to girl names, as I’m much better at those. From your list, [name_f]Sadie[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] are my favorites, as I think they both have the modern-classic appeal and liveliness of your sons’ names.

I would also suggest:

Lots of nice girl names! I love [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]! I like [name_u]Piper[/name_u] too, but it way too popular in my area, unfortunately.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_u]Rex[/name_u] & [name_m]Milo[/name_m] are cute. Here are my thoughts on your current likes:

[name_m]Amos[/name_m]-I really like this. It’s simple enough, but rarely heard these days.

[name_u]Ellis[/name_u]-I think this is nice, but knit-picking, could get lost in the sea of ‘[name_f]El[/name_f]’ girl names.

[name_m]Augustus[/name_m]-I love [name_u]Gus[/name_u] with your crew. [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] is a little stuffy though. [name_m]How[/name_m] about just [name_u]August[/name_u]? Or [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]?

[name_m]Shepard[/name_m]-Not sure I love this one.

[name_m]Ansel[/name_m]-This is okay. Not my favorite, but fine.

[name_f]Ruthie[/name_f]-Not sure if this is still on your current list, but I love it! So so sweet, & [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] is smart & classic.

[name_f]Luna[/name_f]-I know about a million dogs named this. I prefer [name_f]Lula[/name_f].

[name_f]Bea[/name_f]-So cute. Would be better as a nn though.

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u]-I like it, but not as much as [name_f]Ruthie[/name_f].

[name_f]Poppy[/name_f]-Cute. I like this as a nn for [name_f]Penelope[/name_f].

[name_f]Sadie[/name_f]-[name_u]Love[/name_u] it! Adorable, sweet & sassy.

[name_f]Nora[/name_f]-Very smart & pretty, but every time I go to the playground or children’s museum, I hear about 100 of these.

[name_f]Penelope[/name_f]-I like this on its own too. My favorite nn is [name_f]Nellie[/name_f]. [name_u]Penny[/name_u] & [name_f]Polly[/name_f] are also sweet.




































[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Clark[/name_m] and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] are ”

You made some good points about some of the names on my lists. [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] is very similar to all the [name_f]Ella[/name_f]’s on the playground. We considered [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] when naming [name_m]Milo[/name_m], but would have used [name_m]Tuck[/name_m] as a nn.

My first thoughts were [name_m]Abner[/name_m] and [name_f]Ava[/name_f].

Other ideas (sorry for repeats):
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m] (nn [name_u]Toby[/name_u])
[name_m]Gordon[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Gord[/name_m])
[name_u]James[/name_u] (nn [name_u]Jay[/name_u])
[name_m]Edward[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Ed[/name_m])
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m] (nn [name_u]Cal[/name_u])


I think our of your list [name_f]Nora[/name_f] would fit very well and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u].

Amai- ( [name_m]Ah[/name_m]- my)
