Thoughts on this sibset


I’d love to hear your thoughts on this sibset:

[name_u]August[/name_u] (boy)

What would you want to change if you could, and what could a potential sibling be named?

I would personally change out [name_m]Paul[/name_m] for another modern vintage favorite, like [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]. :slight_smile:

Daisy, [name_f]Stella[/name_f] and [name_u]August[/name_u] go wonderfully. [name_m]Paul[/name_m] is a nice name but feels a little mismatched in this set. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_m]Hugo[/name_m]?

I don’t know that [name_m]Paul[/name_m] fits with daisy [name_f]Stella[/name_f] and [name_u]August[/name_u]. I feel like the latter 3 are more “trendy” and [name_m]Paul[/name_m] is more traditional.

Daisy, [name_f]Stella[/name_f], and [name_u]August[/name_u] all go fairly well (although [name_f]Stella[/name_f] sticks out a tiny bit), but [name_m]Paul[/name_m] seems quite out of place here.

Daisy, [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_u]August[/name_u], and …



I agree that [name_m]Paul[/name_m] is not a perfect match. What about:

I think that [name_m]Paul[/name_m] sticks out a little bit. Maybe instead you could go with [name_f]Sadie[/name_f]

I agree with everyone else. [name_m]Paul[/name_m] sticks out. Something like [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], as @jonquils suggested, would be perfect! As would [name_m]Hugo[/name_m], [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Milo[/name_u] or [name_u]Jude[/name_u], as others have suggested. Or:


I think [name_m]Paul[/name_m] doesn’t work, but [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f] & [name_u]August[/name_u] do. [name_f]May[/name_f] I suggest
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] ([name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_m]Auggie[/name_m] & [name_u]Ollie[/name_u])
[name_u]Theo[/name_u] ([name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_m]Auggie[/name_m] & [name_u]Theo[/name_u])
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] ([name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_m]Auggie[/name_m] & [name_u]Jules[/name_u])
[name_u]Mason[/name_u] ([name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_m]Auggie[/name_m] & [name_u]Mason[/name_u])
[name_u]Micah[/name_u] ([name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_m]Auggie[/name_m] & [name_u]Micah[/name_u])

As it is, [name_m]Paul[/name_m] does feel a bit out of place based on style but it’s [name_f]Stella[/name_f] that feels most tied to a naming trend. [name_m]Paul[/name_m]’s usage remains ever steady, and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] too for the most part, whereas [name_f]Stella[/name_f] was one of the first movers of the vintage name revival and doesn’t seem as fresh. [name_u]August[/name_u] hasn’t been overused and seems a suitable unfussy choice next to solid traditional [name_m]Paul[/name_m]. [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Paul[/name_m]. As brothers alone, they seem a good match.

For a sister to [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], I would look for a perennial choice that sits somewhere between traditional and the fun and unexpected [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]. Perhaps [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]. [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]. I like that. I could see [name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_f]Thea[/name_f] and [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] also working in harmony with [name_m]Paul[/name_m], [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_u]August[/name_u]. I find that sometimes it makes a difference if you shuffle the name order around. If the names are of slightly different styles and associations, then alternating names or spacing out the most similar names helps the set feel more cohesive rather than a sliding scale which the order of [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Paul[/name_m] seems to do.
