twin girls on the way - 3 siblings with a theme...HELP

our current children:

d: marin elizabeth
s: ocean white
d: pearl frances

we have been going w/ a sea theme…and when i thought we had b/g twins…i loved isla and finn…but we’re having two girls…

hubs isnt crazy about isla (but we each get to name a twin). i honestly havent liked any of the other nautical/sea themed names (like coral, windy, sandy, shell, etc.)

our middle names are aileen for sure (hubs’ grandma) and im up in the air between bee and alice. we name middles after people in our lives.

so the name hubs seems to have chosen (which i actually came up with and he likes) is iris aileen. i know, a lot of i’s…but he likes it…and i think its cute.

here is a list of names i like:

rowan
juniper
indigo
isla
nora

but none of them i can stick with for too long before getting wishy washy again…maybe this is why they say not to go with a theme…

So you’re looking for another girl’s name that fits in with the sea theme, and potentially works as a twinset with [name]Isla[/name]?

[name]Marin[/name], [name]Ocean[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], [name]Isla[/name] and…

[name]Kairi[/name]
[name]Romy[/name]
[name]Darya[/name]
[name]Nerida[/name]
[name]Nerissa[/name]
[name]Delta[/name]
Eione
[name]Ione[/name]
[name]Eudora[/name]
[name]Delphine[/name]
[name]Azura[/name]
[name]Nila[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name]

My personal favourite is [name]Romy[/name]. It’s a pet form of [name]Rosemary[/name], which means “dew of the sea”.

I have this names from here http://hasani.net.phtemp.com/water.html if you want to look for more, i just took the one i thought you may like…

What about [name]Iris[/name] and:

[name]Azure[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Ianthe[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Calypso[/name] [name]Alice[/name]
Galene [name]Alice[/name]

While [name]Iris[/name] isn’t completely nautical, I do think it is somewhat related to your (very cute!) theme; I’m picturing rainbows over the ocean or made by splashing waves. Of your other options, I see [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Indigo[/name] as being the most on-theme, but I would not do a twin set of [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Iris[/name]. [name]Iris[/name] and [name]Indigo[/name], though, is pretty darn cool. [name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] and [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Bee[/name], or [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Alice[/name]. Either way sounds great, I can’t decide which I like more.

If you don’t mind straying more from the theme, I really like [name]Rowan[/name], but it’s pretty close to [name]Marin[/name]'s name. I love [name]Juniper[/name] too. But my favorite set with your other children would be [name]Iris[/name] and [name]Indigo[/name]-- love it! Good luck!

Since your husband chose [name]Iris[/name], why not give your twins a tree/floral theme to go with your other childrens water theme. [name]Hazel[/name] and [name]Iris[/name] would be cute. [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Saffron[/name], [name]Olive[/name], [name]Lily[/name], [name]Marigold[/name], [name]Rose[/name], [name]Dahlia[/name], [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Violet[/name], [name]Pansy[/name], [name]Primrose[/name], [name]Sage[/name], or [name]Rosemary[/name] would work with [name]Iris[/name] as well.

maike great suggestions and research!

thank you all so very much.

indigo and iris was definitely one of the first pairs i came up with…that list of water names ive seen quite a bit…and just cant fall in love w/ anything on there…though rosemary is very pretty, but maybe a little too mainstream for me…hubs likes it though.

indigo is also a name that kept coming to my mind before we found out there were two girls…so its got a strong running…

im thinking that either juniper, indigo, or rowan will be my final choice…either bee or miele for the middle name (miele means honey in spanish and i was using bee to honor my sister melissa whose name means honeybee…so it works.)

aww, just wanted to say that I love [name]Bee[/name] to honor your sister [name]Melissa[/name]-- so cute!

d: marin elizabeth
s: ocean white
d: pearl frances

oh i [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Isla[/name]! I think it’s perfect. You should definitely use that! :slight_smile:

My other top choice is [name]Aquinnah[/name]. it sounds like [name]Aqua[/name] and reminds me of the ocean. nn’s [name]Aqua[/name] or [name]Quinn[/name]. [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Aquinnah[/name] sounds gorgeous. :slight_smile:

other ideas–
~[name]Hallie[/name] (means thinking of the sea)
~[name]Brooke[/name] (self-explanatory and very cute!)
~[name]Tallulah[/name] “[name]Tally[/name]” (means jumping waters)

and i have to say i love your husband’s suggestion of [name]Coral[/name]. i think it’s beautiful. maybe [name]Coralie[/name], do you prefer that? xx

I like your three children’s names and I believe your husband’s choice of [name]Iris[/name] is a good fit. Personally, I wouldn’t have another twin name beginning with the letter “i” like [name]Indigo[/name] and [name]Rowan[/name] sounds like it would be a male twin name next to [name]Iris[/name]. [name]Juniper[/name] is ok but not my fave. Here are some other suggestions for other twin.
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Juno[/name] Miele (instead of [name]Juniper[/name])
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Jonquil[/name] [name]Bee[/name] (instead of [name]Juniper[/name])
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Sybil[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Electra[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Trinity[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Arcadia[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Willow[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & Odyssey Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Galilee[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Sidony[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Saffron[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Luna[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Calla[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Aria[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Novella[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Viola[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Garnet[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Linnea[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Topaz[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Primrose[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Verity[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Crimson[/name] [name]Bee[/name]
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Lark[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Jade[/name] Miele
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Aileen[/name] & [name]Clover[/name] [name]Bee[/name]

I wanted to suggest [name]Aqua[/name]. Also Miel is honey in spanish not Miele.

how is coralie pronounced?

The Co has a short ‘o’ it is not like the word core then ra is like rah and lie as lee

Co rah lee

right, like what rollo said- CO-rah-lee, so it doesn’t sound too much like [name]Coral[/name].

reminding you again of [name]Aquinnah[/name]… i think it’s charming. :slight_smile:

Some great ideas here! Have you thought about [name]Waverly[/name]?

wanted to say that topaz was on my early list. i thought river and topaz would be really great names for two twins…hubs not so much. :slight_smile:

i cant seem to hear coralie the way you are describing it. i keep saying coral-ee in my head…which isnt bad, its actually pretty. but it does not go w/ bee.

thanks for the correct spelling of miel. :slight_smile:

and no waverly was not a consideration…and i dont think it would really go w/ bee too well. miel(e) it would, however.

going with your theme of “related” to ocean or sea, I see a lot of suggestions that are nice. But like “pearl” which is related, but not exact: you might try some names not usual:

here are some pretty ones I like:

[name]Lana[/name] (Hawaian I think) means : Afloat in still waters
or the Hawaiian:
Kaiko
Kailani
Keilani

[name]Talise[/name] means lovely water
[name]Delphina[/name] (dolphin)

Or since you like the concept but not the name [name]Isla[/name], another form of that is the scottish Ailia : also meaning Island which I prefer to the names of :
[name]Morgan[/name] and Jazeera, which also mean Island.

I do hope you tell us what you decide on. Congrats!

my apologies I didnt mean to say “morgan” meant island, just that its a related name for a girl. But Jazeera (or as wikipedia spells it “Jazira”) is arabic for Island.

again I hope u tell us what u decided on.

I completely agree. :smiley:
I definently will be following this thread, I love the sea and names related to the ocean and the calm beaches. I feel relaxed already and I’m looking forward to the final names! Beckstar, your kids have gorgeous names!
