Thoughts on my hypothetical sibset

Hello everyone!
I’m a long way off of actual motherhood, but I’ve been thinking and I think I’ve found the names that present-me would want to use for my children. I want two, so I have two girl names and two boy names.

Middles are complicated, so this is just firsts, but:
Persephone, [name_m]Ronan[/name_m], [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f], and [name_m]Leander[/name_m]

Leander has just been promoted to first-name status, and I’m really loving it!

What do you think of the names individually?
How do you feel about them together? [name_f]Do[/name_f] they fit?
What middle names can you think of (especially for [name_m]Leander[/name_m], as that’s the newbie!)?

Thank you very much!

What do you think of the names individually?
[name_f]Persephone[/name_f] I love! And I like [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m] too. I’m not really a fan of [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f], sorry. It just seems a little over the top and awkward to me.

How do you feel about them together? [name_f]Do[/name_f] they fit?
I think generally they fit together – [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m] work best imo. However, [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] seems a little plain and out of place here.

What middle names can you think of?
I think the combos you already have in your signature are great! For [name_m]Leander[/name_m], maybe:

Leander [name_m]Artemus[/name_m] [name_f]Nox[/name_f]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Cedric[/name_m] [name_u]Mars[/name_u]

[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Alban[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_u]Callahan[/name_u] [name_m]Frey[/name_m]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Thelonius[/name_m] [name_u]Fox[/name_u]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_f]February[/name_f] [name_u]Lyle[/name_u]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Ptolemy[/name_m] [name_u]Silver[/name_u]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] [name_m]Ulysses[/name_m]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Julius[/name_m] [name_m]Crispin[/name_m]

I think they go quite well together! [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] is a bit plain next to [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f], but I really like both names. [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m] work well too! I actually really like all four names individually, together [name_m]Leander[/name_m] and [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] seem a bit “normal” next to [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f], but I don’t mind that.

I agree that [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] does sound slightly out of place with your other names.
I really like [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] not the biggest fan of Aurembaix and [name_m]Leander[/name_m]’s really cool just not my cup of tea. [name_m]Ronan[/name_m]’s nice just doesn’t really work with your other names, I think [name_m]Roman[/name_m] might go better.

Hope this helps!

I know that everyone’s mentioning how [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] feels a bit out of place. I’ve worried about this before, but it’s my absolutely number one boy name, and even though it’s not as elaborate as some of my others, it just absolutely sings to me (in a way that [name_m]Roman[/name_m]/Rowan/etc. don’t). I’ve tried, but I really can’t seem to let it go.

How about [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] [name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] or [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]?

I love both [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m]! I’ll be blunt and say I really don’t care for either of the girl names, personally. I also think the girls make sense as sisters and the boys make sense as brothers but they don’t really match each other–they feel so different in style, familiarity, and feel. The girls are much more elaborate and grandiose while the boys feel elegant and whimsical yet stable and wearable.

Persephone, [name_m]Ronan[/name_m], and [name_m]Leander[/name_m] all flow beautifully together. [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f] is a little heavy for a first name (really lovely, but the spelling is a little difficult) and contrasts with her siblings. How about [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], maybe Otherwise? Otherwise, lovely!

How about (these are inspired by the fantasy theme in your names):

Persephone, [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m] fit well. [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] is lovely. Seph/Sephie would be a cute nickname. [name_m]Leander[/name_m] and [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] aren’t my style, but are unusual, charming and share a similar vibe. Is [name_m]Leo[/name_m] a possible nickname for [name_m]Leander[/name_m] or am I stretching it?

Not a fan of [name_f]Aurembiaix[/name_f] - long, overly complicated and heavy. I struggled trying to pronounce it and then trying to spell it in my reply. I don’t think it fits very well with the sibling names either, I’m sorry!
