Three syllable S names for girls?

My cousin has two daughters, [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Savannah[/name], and is trying to have a third child. If she has another girl she feels like she’s sort of trapped herself into three syllable S names. What would be a good option for her? She liked the names [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Chloe[/name] and her husband liked [name]Margo[/name] when she was pregnant last.

Ones I’ve thought of:

Can anyone think of anymore she might like?

I’m not sure if they’re her style, but the first two that came to mind were [name]Simona[/name] and [name]Sylvana[/name]. I went to highschool with girls with the names and I always thought they were pretty.

I think I would break the pattern now at least with the syllables.

3 sylables


2 syllable S names

[name]Sadie[/name] - same style as [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Chloe[/name] at least to me


But I don’t think she’s trapped into that kind of name. I think it would be perfectly fine to pick an S name with a different number of syllables like…

…or a 3+ syllable name that starts with something else but ends with an A sound like her other daughters…

…or even some other 3 syllable name that just sounds good with her other daughters like…


Also, what about Ch- names that have a similar sound but different spelling? The only one I can think of like this off the top of my head is Charlotta (or Charlotte if she’s willing to go two-syllable), but maybe there are others?

[name]Even[/name] though both names start with S and have three syllables, they’re pretty far apart stylistically [name]IMO[/name]. I don’t think breaking the pattern for the third would be all that terrible.

Okay 3 syllable S names that I can think of:

Names that aren’t S or 3 syllables but still fit with the other girls

Keep the S but forget about syllables

I also think that getting away from 3-Syllable S wouldn’t be a bad thing. [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Savannah[/name] are stylistically very different, and I probably never would have made the connection. There have been some great suggestions for S-names of other syllables, or keeping the -a ending. Especially if there are ever going to be more children in the family, I would break the pattern before it really gets established. I once knew a family with five children ALL with K----n names. I never had made the connection that they began and ended with the same letters, because they were all fairly normal names. [name]Just[/name] that they were all K’s – until they named the baby [name]Karson[/name].


[name]Seraphine[/name] was my first thought. It follows the pattern but with a different ending it doesn’t sound too matchy. I also like [name]Sapphira[/name].


Some of these are 3 syllable S names, but some of them start with C, and sound like an S. I think that a 3 syllable, S heavy name would sound nice. Or what a about a Z name?


[name]Seraphine[/name] and [name]Sigourney[/name] were inspired suggestions by PP’s.

Personally I would try to get away from at least the -a ending if not the three syllables. [name]Susannah[/name] is gorgeous and I love it but its very close to [name]Savannah[/name], I adore [name]Sabrina[/name] but its very close to [name]Sophia[/name]. [name]Sigourney[/name] and [name]Seraphine[/name] have points of distinction, if you know what I mean.

Other ideas that might have been mentioned but I didn’t see them:
[name]September[/name] (or [name]Septima[/name])

If we can go with other numbers of syllables:
[name]Sinead[/name] (shuh-nayd)

“Es”/S sound start:
