Unique-ish Girls and Boys Names

I’m not pregnant, but my husband and I have been trying for #2 and I love picking out baby names so I thought I’d just get a head start.

My 2 year old daughter’s name is [name]Whitney[/name] [name]Maxine[/name] [name]Frost[/name]. [name]Whitney[/name] because I only know one [name]Whitney[/name] and it’s a rare name in the small town where I live. [name]Maxine[/name] because it was my grandmother’s name and (although it contradicts the nameberry authors) I think it has a simple elegance. [name]Frost[/name] because she was born in [name]January[/name].

I would love to get some boy and girl name ideas - a few guidelines…

  • We live in a small town so names can’t be too out there at least not first names (I like really unique middle names), but I definately want a unique name that I won’t hear on other kids
  • I want all my kids to match the double middle name idea

Otherwise, I don’t have many other ideas… any suggestions would be great!

This leaves the door WIDE open. Can you give us an idea of some names you like as a guideline?

Here’s some off the top of my head to get started though.
If this is your month you’re edd will be in the fall so…

[name]Kianna[/name] [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Autumn[/name]
[name]Ember[/name] [name]Shea[/name] [name]Autumn[/name] (nn [name]Emy[/name] or Emby)
[name]Leila[/name] [name]Estelle[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name] ____
[name]Livia[/name] [name]Willow[/name] ____(nn [name]Liv[/name])

[name]Crispen[/name] [name]Hayden[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Broderick[/name] [name]Gavin[/name] [name]Lief[/name] ([name]Brody[/name])
[name]Jameson[/name] [name]Ellis[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Cassian[/name] [name]Finley[/name] [name]Tripp[/name] (get it, fall… tripp, lol… no? :S)

I’m feel like I’m just slapping names together and if any of these sound good to you it’s by total fluke! lol You’ll get some better suited suggestions if you jot down some name/style preferrences or mns you and dh are looking at (:

Yeah… sorry about the vagueness. A few names we liked:
Deverie (dev-ree)

BOYS: (I know these are all pretty popular, but I like how they sound and I can’t really think of ones that have the same feel, but aren’t as popular)

Some family names that could be used in name suggestions:
[name]Helena[/name], [name]Peter[/name], [name]Alvin[/name], [name]Ernest[/name], [name]August[/name], [name]Henry[/name]

Some other middle name ideas:
[name]Lake[/name] (for our love of water), [name]Track[/name] (for our love of running), [name]June[/name] (my birthmonth), [name]October[/name] (my husbands birthmonth)


Here are some suggestions:

[name]Blythe[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name] - I love this!!
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Morgyn[/name] [name]Lake[/name]

[name]Patrick[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Henry[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Henry[/name] [name]August[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Nolan[/name]
[name]Peter[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Kyle[/name] (or [name]Kai[/name])

I love the previous suggestion of [name]Blythe[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name]! I’ve tried to get my husband to go along with [name]Blythe[/name] but have had no luck. More suggestions…
[name]Blythe[/name] [name]Augusta[/name] [name]Lake[/name] (instead of [name]August[/name])
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Darbie[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]Henry[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Shepherd[/name]

[name]Blythe[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name] is really pretty! [name]Blythe[/name] is on my personal [name]California[/name] Desert Names list. I also really like [name]Helena[/name] [name]Morgyn[/name] [name]Lake[/name] although I would spell it [name]Morgan[/name]. [name]Leila[/name] [name]Estelle[/name] [name]Sage[/name]-ravishing, I think I could rack my brain all day and not come up with something that pretty! Of course I love the name [name]Peter[/name]-my son’s name. I really like [name]Peter[/name] with [name]August[/name] but I am not partial to [name]Kyle[/name] or [name]Kai[/name]. Of course if you like those names a lot, don’t listen to me! My son [name]Peter[/name]'s middle name is [name]Sebastian[/name]. He only has one middle. I also love [name]Henry[/name].
[name]Peter[/name] [name]Augustus[/name] [name]Lionel[/name] or [name]Peter[/name] [name]Augustus[/name] [name]Indio[/name] (another [name]California[/name] desert name). [name]Peter[/name] [name]Augustus[/name] [name]Garnet[/name].
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Jameson[/name], [name]Henry[/name] [name]Forest[/name] [name]Jameson[/name].

I like many of the previous suggestions, although the combination with [name]Patrick[/name] and [name]Henry[/name] might not be the best choice. (Give me liberty or give me death!) Also, you might want to consider that with [name]Morgan[/name] being such a popular name, you would essentially be condemning your little [name]Morgyn[/name] to a lifetime of “No, with a y.” That’s bound to get old. And I very much like [name]Ember[/name]-- it seems like that would be to your taste with nature choices like [name]Lake[/name], [name]August[/name], [name]Frost[/name], etc. Maybe you should let it grow on you for a bit. :slight_smile:

Thanks for all the suggestions - I have to say… you guys are good! :slight_smile:

A few I loved:

[name]Blythe[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name] or [name]Blaire[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name] (which is better?)
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Morgyn[/name] [name]Lake[/name]
[name]Nola[/name] [name]Morgyn[/name] [name]Lake[/name] (one I put together - what do you think?)

I loved the [name]Dashiell[/name] part in the name [name]Henry[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Jameson[/name] - not so sure about the [name]Henry[/name] part… I mean, I love it, but I just can’t visuallize a possible football/soccer player named [name]Henry[/name] - maybe it’s just me I don’t know.

[name]Kyle[/name] is really starting to grow on me, however, it don’t really know a way to update it with really unique middle names…

Also just throwing this out there - what do you think of [name]Damian[/name]? [name]Whitney[/name] and [name]Damian[/name]?
I just don’t know :{

still struggling with boys names… any other suggestions - feel free to stray from my list.
Sorry about all the wordiness…
Thanks again!

I like [name]Blythe[/name] better than [name]Blair[/name] because it sounds more old-fashioned, like an old vintage name that’s coming back in style. [name]Blair[/name] sounds more 1970’s to me maybe because of the actress [name]Linda[/name] [name]Blair[/name]. I don’t really like [name]Linda[/name] [name]Blair[/name] so maybe I am biased.
[name]Whitney[/name] is the name of a very tall mountain in [name]California[/name]. Have you thought of naming your baby a mountain place name? There’s [name]McKinley[/name], [name]Shasta[/name], [name]Denali[/name], and all kinds of other mountains that have interesting names. Maybe there is a favorite mountain near where you live that has a lovely name. Or is there a forest, lake, etc. that you love?
