The Tudor Age was an interesting time for names. Tudor itself is actually a given name – a Welsh one, roughly (and rather appropriately) meaning “ruler of the people”. Henry VII, once known as Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, came to power after victory at Bosworth Field, effectively ending the Wars of the Roses, and from him came some of the most famous – and infamous – monarchs in British history.

“My four-year-old daughter is named Avery Grace. My two-year-old son is named Isaiah Joel. We are having a third and final baby, a girl, mid March. We are struggling to find a name.

My husband would like to keep the vowel theme going, but doesn’t want a name that’s too popular. I personally am a fan of softer-sounding names that begin with S or M. We’d also take into consideration the nickname: we sometimes call our children Ave and Zay.

Here are the names we’ve discussed so far:
