Name Sage: Naming Twin Boys!

naming twin boys

McKenzie writes:

My husband and I are expecting our first babies in July. Yes, you read that correctly … BABIES! We are expecting twin boys!

We both love and agree on the name Oliver for one of the boys, but can’t agree on another name.

I like Bellamy, Berkeley, Zander, Elliot, and Sawyer. But my husband doesn’t. He likes Julian, Anthony, and Keegan.

So we are stuck! Any names that you could suggest would be extremely helpful!

CruzVeda

We are expecting our third child. We have a boy and a girl already: Cruz Andres and Veda Josephine. I like that both of their names are four letters (though we’re not committed to four letters) and have spiritual ties, but I can’t seem to find a name that I truly love for a third child.

Our top names so far are Makaio and Eden. We have some family names we might use for the middles. I would love if you could offer me any suggestions at all. I don’t have any set rules for the names, but I want to love it, and I also want it to flow with Cruz and Veda.

Our last name is a long, common one – starts with an R, ends with a ‘z’ sound.

girls' baby names

Alison writes:

We need the perfect name for our fourth daughter! Our daughters are Ellyanna Jane, Vivienne Renee, and Hannalise Olive.

We’re looking for a long name – three or more syllables, with a similar style to her sisters’ names. But it needs to have a different sound and dominant letters, so we can’t repeat anna/enne/lise/viv/elly.

Our last name starts with a B, so no B names, please! Other family names to avoid: Jennifer, Cheryl, Kristy, Kirsten, Isabel, Amelia, Anna, Skye, Liberty, Pollyanna, Tiffany, and Felicity.

Our current shortlist consists of Olivia, Lydia, Everly, Lavinia, and Rosalie.

Naming a Daughter – At Last!

baby sister name

Alice writes:

My husband and I are expecting our first baby girl in June after having four boys, and we CANNOT agree on a girl’s name.

Our sons are Dashiell Zion, JedidiahJediKai, August Simon, and Lincoln Atticus. The surname sounds like McLachlin.

We’re looking for a name that is feminine, but not frilly. My husband likes names that are a little bit more modern and I like older names. We don’t want to repeat an initial, so D, J, A, and L names are out. We do agree on a middle name: Moriah.

Our shortlist includes Maeve, Eleanor/Elinor, Cecily, Scarlett, Elizabeth, and Fern. But we’re not in love with any of them.

Seeking a Science-Inspired Name

science baby name

Liz writes:

I’m a math teacher and science lover, my husband is a history teacher and literary enthusiast. We are expecting our second son, and looking for something that can go with our first son’s name: Truman King, Tru for short.

We’re hoping for a name with ties to science, history, or both. And, because we’re teachers, we’re looking for an unusual name – something we won’t associate with a former student.

Our short list includes Wiles (after the mathematician) and Kepler, but we’re looking for more ideas.

We all know people who color our ideas about a name, for good or otherwise. But teachers have a special challenge, don’t they? They meet dozens of children every year – more, for teachers in upper grades. And their students inevitably shade the way they think about baby names.
